It’s been two lengthy years because the final quantity of Idol Desires however it’s again and issues have taken an fascinating flip!
Once we final left our characters, Tokita was about to get married when Hanami couldn’t undergo with it. She ended leaving Tokita on the altar and Deguchi blamed herself as a result of she was ready to cease it, but, she didn’t. After the marriage, Tokita finally ends up getting gastroenteritis and winds up within the hospital. Deguchi visits him; nonetheless, he tells her to not see him ever once more!
Enter Haru. He sees this as his likelihood and strikes quick. Like… actually quick. He goes from a dinner date to confessing his emotions, to proposing to her multi function evening! Deguchi isn’t positive if she will settle for his feeling as all she will take into consideration is Tokita. Then… the issue comes up that Tokita is her provider of I-Dream and she or he’s working out. She bites the bullet and goes towards Tokita’s needs so she will get a refill however Tokita, now that he’s wholesome, will get take a look at Deguchi and realizes one thing is unsuitable.
Deguchi finally ends up with a facet impact from taking the drug: Everlasting reverse getting older. If she retains taking the drug, she’s going to revert again to being 15 completely. She now has to make the choice to proceed dwelling as 31-year-old Deguchi or 15-year-old Akari. After figuring out every part that Hibiki has simply gone via, the choice is rather a lot harder for Akari than it appears!
Our three grownup major characters get all the consideration on this quantity with Deguchi being on the heart of every part.
For Tokita, he’s heartbroken over dropping Hanami on the altar. He tries to play it off as every part is okay however it, clearly, wasn’t. He informed Deguchi to not see him as a result of regardless of courting Hanami, deep down, he nonetheless had emotions for Deguchi and he didn’t need to combine these emotions in after what had simply occurred. You may’t actually blame him since Tokita and Deguchi have been associates since faculty. It was laborious sufficient for him to seal away his emotions earlier than for Hanami however now that she’s gone, he begins to appreciate that perhaps Deguchi ought to have been the selection all alongside. The truth that he didn’t need to admit it nor did he need Deguchi to see him reveals that he’s a little bit of a coward and would a lot relatively take a straightforward method out of an issue.
Haru, alternatively, was far more direct. I sense that since he knew about Tokita’s place, he wanted to behave quick with a view to safe his personal emotions earlier than Tokita may make a transfer (if he may even convey himself to take action). I imagine that Haru sensed that Tokita was wavering and noticed that as his alternative… so he took it. It’s a little bit of a jerk transfer however typically for those who really feel sure about somebody, you need to be with them and never see them with anybody else. So, it’s a bit comprehensible on the similar time. He went via a whole lot of hassle for his confession so it’s a bit unhappy to see him get rejected ultimately.
Then there’s Deguchi who went via a curler coaster of feelings on this quantity. She felt responsible for not stopping Hanami from working off. She blamed herself for Tokita’s failed marriage ceremony, then she needed to take care of her emotions for each Tokita and Haru, and now she’s confronted with a choice about taking I-Dream and what which means for her job as an idol and her friendship/potential relationship with Hibiki. Deguchi is being pulled in so many various instructions without delay that it’s virtually not possible to assume the place she’s going to finish up and what sort of choice she’s going to make.
Although it has been so lengthy because the final quantity, it was nice to see the story proceed and it did so in a giant method. I didn’t foresee the drug’s facet impact being a plot level as I believed that she was merely rising her hair out. I didn’t actually piece it collectively till Tokita introduced it to life. It is sensible that if a drug can revert your physique to a youthful age then ending up in that state completely could be a detriment to taking it. As sci-fi because the plot is with miracle age-reversing medication is, it’s a logical twist if you actually give it some thought.
Poor Deguchi, although. She was put via the wringer on this quantity. Now, she has an essential choice to make. I’m assuming we might even see that call subsequent quantity however, then once more, we might not. She notes that she nonetheless has a number of drugs left so I’m assuming we’ll see her reverting a few extra occasions. The massive query is… are these remaining drugs sufficient to make it a everlasting revert? That’s the hazard right here so it’s form of odd that she’s keen to maintain taking them but she’s refusing a brand new refill of them figuring out the risks. Nobody mentioned that the remaining drugs would trigger her to not completely revert, both.
There are a number of methods this might go… all of them are fairly fascinating! I simply hope we don’t want to attend till 2023 to search out out!
