Shikimori Ain’t Just A Cutie Episode 8 Recap
The episode begins with Kamiya’s reimagining of a live-action movie she recently watched. Kamiya imagines herself as a princess waiting for her prince to appear and take her away. Izumi, on the other hand, is the prince who only looks at Shikimori.
While Izumi and Kamiya are at the library, the cultural festival continues. Nekozaki sent Kamiya a message asking for a favor, but she missed it as she was engrossed in her conversation with Izumi.
They not only discuss their personal impressions of each other, but also their romantic relationships. While Izumi was surprised to hear Kamiya discussing female topics, he thinks she is like any other girl who is often misjudged.
Nekozaki and Shikimori appear out of nowhere to speak with Kamiya. Shikimori decided to switch couple numbers with Kamiya because of Izumi. While Kamiya didn’t want to give up her act, she generously did so in light of Shikimori and Izumi’s relationship.
Shikimori and Nekozaki waited for Izumi to finish her shift at the library. When Shikimori sees how comfortable Izumi and Kamiya are together, he remarks that they are relatively close.
Izumi, Shikimori, and Nekozaki leave together when the library shift is over. Kamiya was left with a lot of questions. She feels like Cinderella, whose time with her Prince Charming is over.
Anyway, Kamiya gets rid of it and heads to his class booth. Everyone was excited to see her again, knowing that if Kamiya was there, their booth would make more money. They compliment Kamiya’s looks, but she can’t stop thinking about Izumi and Shikimori.
She went to the school rooftop to take a break because all she could think about was Izumi’s kindness. Shikimori returns her couple number unexpectedly.
It turns out that Shikimori had noticed Kamiya’s feelings towards Izumi. Shikimori argues that removing Kamiya’s couple number for his personal happiness is unfair. Instead, she rips the number off the pair.
As she offered to leave Izumi and never talk to her again, Kamiya started crying. Shikimori kisses Kamiya to distract her from her unpleasant thoughts. Shikimori clarifies that Kamiya isn’t a horrible person because she likes Izumi too.
Their conversation ended well, leaving Kamiya with the impression that Izumi had found a good wife in Shikimori.
Izumi starts another day preparing for Shikimori’s birthday and their dating anniversary. Despite the fact that their class didn’t win the free food vouchers after the party at the cultural festival, they headed to an Okonomiyaki restaurant.
Shikimori informs Hachimitsu and Nekozaki that she misplaced the couple’s number after asking for their memorial photo. They think Shikimori is unlikely to lose it as she is not like the unlucky Izumi.
After the party was over, Izumi invited Shikimori to accompany her to a nearby park. Izumi politely handed over her gift and greetings. It was a heart-shaped white pearl necklace. Shikimori and Izumi discuss their friendship and mutual trust.
Shikimori promises Izumi before the episode ends that she won’t let him go, even if other girls are prettier and sweeter than she ever meets their way. She cries as Izumi promises her that they will be together for a very long time.
