This episode certainly has everyone's emotions on a rollercoaster ride. Ren and Mio are actually happy together...for about 15 minutes. They announce their new relationship to Mabuchi (who give a fantastic yelp of surprise) and Yuuki. Yuuki is devastated and rides the bus of catharsis. We don't get a tearful, heartbreaking song over the cell phone as in the kdrama, but Yuuki's pain is shown pretty well. Ren's mother can't stand Mio being "with" her son. She drops the bombshell that she was the reason Mio's parents split up. Ren is devastated to find out his new GF is the daughter of the man that ruined his life and rejects Mio. Shu is there to pick up the pieces. It's kind of hard to believe Ren would dump Mio over this, but I suppose Ren is a little damaged by his childhood.
