for this episode, Akina had quite a number of scenes.
嵐子 had a quarrel with 佳奈 when 佳奈 approached 嵐子、questioning her if 嵐子 did approach Takumi-sensei, the ballet teacher for the ballet school which 佳奈 and rest are at…, to ask him to stop the school and join 嵐子’s ballet school…somehow, 佳奈 misunderstood that 嵐子 was behind all these, which she wasn’t aware of…so they had a quarrel due to this misunderstanding..
嵐子 approached Takumi-sensei to ask him to give his best ballet teachings to Haruo(嵐子’s son)…
佳奈 realised that she wronged 嵐子 in the end thru some clarifications…
It was going to be Mothers’ Day and 佳奈’s husband invited the whole gang of aunties at the ballet school to perform at a hospital for the patients…which Haruo was involved too..
So Haruo invitied 嵐子 to watch but got rejected as 嵐子 said that it was not up to her standard to watch such lousy performance.
However, on the day of performance, 佳奈 ran to 嵐子 to plead with her to attend the performance…and mentioned that it was Mothers’ Day (which she did not realize until 佳奈 told her)…and she turned down a business appt to go with 佳奈 to the hospital to watch Haruo perform.
Haruo gave 嵐子 a flower and a card, that reads " Mother, you are the one and only mother in the world for me. Do not work too hard. Please stay healthy and with me forever. Love, Haruo"
That reduced 嵐子 to tears…and she ran out of the performance and 佳奈 ran after her…she murmured to 佳奈 : " I will not be able to give anymore time to Haruo…my time is running out"…
佳奈 heard this and questioned why…but Haruo came out and asked " Mother, you watched my performance?" and interrupted 嵐子’s reply..
to avoid letting 佳奈 know the truth, 嵐子 said she have to leave for work and left in a rush, in tears.
Also, 嵐子 recieved a letter from her doctor requesting her to be admitted for treatment asap. Again, she suffered a minor heart attack when she returned from a business appt…and she quickly ran out of the room to avoid Haruo to see her agony.
Overall, this episode featured more of Akina! yeah~
