the Finale Special that was bundled with the first DVD was finally subbed and released last week.
titled "Mine to Kiyora no Saikai" ("Mine and Kiyora's Reunion"), i'm very happy that it followed the manga as it is, with Kiyora's competition and Ryuu visiting her in Paris.
though the focus on them had always been very short, i love this coupling. and the Special showed how even Kiyora is not immune to separation from Ryuu.
hopefully the 2nd movie would play that out well too. cos the live-action Kiyora, Mizukawa Asami, has always given off a very aloof vibe when she is actually quite passionate.
here's a few screencaps of the couple.
Ryuu crying at Kiyora's recital.
Kiyora surprising Ryuu from behind.
Ryuu doing a Chiaki moment.
Kiyora asking Ryuu about going back to Japan.
my favorite scene.
