Eboni: It is week 9 of HOML, and with only 2 episodes left, I am still loving this show! Good stuff happens, WTF stuff happens, and sad stuff happens. What did you think?

Pamela: I think Mamoru is finally getting what he deserves.

Suzy: Yes! So random/cute/unexpected.

Eboni: That was a great moment! He just wanted a girlfriend and ended up with a fiancée!!

Pamela: A lot of the solutions in this drama have come down to communication...All Hina had to do was say, "I want to get married," and bam - the problem was solved!

Suzy: Very true. It's great seeing everyone open up more as the episodes go and actually become closer from their honesty.

Eboni: I agree. The boys finally told mom and dad what they wanted to do in life and they got the support they wanted and needed. Speaking of which Takuto is no longer at work but wants to go to medical school. He is so inspiring! *wipes tear from eye*

Pamela: I'm not sure exactly how much he's going to be able to accomplish medically, but he really is working hard to not be idle. And Rikuto...good luck with those dinosaurs' pubic bones.

Suzy: L-O-L @ Rikuto and his dino pubic bones, I'm so happy for him. And as long as Takuto feels accomplished, then that's fine by me.

Eboni: I hate to sound like a broken record, but I abhor Shige Senpai. Who hits a disabled person who can't even defend themselves?!

Pamela: I think he needs a few lessons from Takuto on how to manage jealousy...

Suzy: He was smart not to show his face again this episode after the punching incident, ^&#(@&$ creep. But really, you know he just wants to punch himself in the face. Which he should.

Eboni: I guess... Or he could just disappear. One more thing I wanted to mention. The man Megumi was taking care of with ALS died. That was so sad.

Pamela: Tamotsu, why must you remind us that Takuto's going to die? Tamotsu serves as an example of what's to come for Takuto, especially considering that Takuto also has chosen not to use a ventilator.

Suzy: Agh, I was wondering all episode what Takuto's email said, and when I saw it I didn't know how to feel (other than sad, of course). It's an understandable choice, but such a hard one.

Eboni: I respect Takuto's choice. I have no idea what I would do, but prolonging the inevitable just seems too hard. Anyway we will just have to wait until next week to see how it all plays out. 2 more episodes!

Pamela: I'm curious to see how the end will play out for Takuto...We know that he's in Megumi's good hands, though!

Suzy: ...If she can find him when he apparently goes missing. Taku, we only have you for two more weeks! Don't go missing now! Until episode 10, enjoy the hours of your lives. See everyone next week!
