Hige wo Soru Episode 6 Spoilers
Episode 5 serves as a pivotal point in the series, as Yoshida brings Airi home to meet Sayu. Airi doesn’t believe Yoshida’s explanation that he has known Sayu since she was a child and reminds him that his and Sayu’s situation can be constituted as a crime no matter how noble his intentions are. Shortly after they meet, the two women realize that they need to speak in private with each other.
After Yoshida leaves to buy some groceries for breakfast, Airi initiates a candid conversation with Sayu and learns about the younger girl’s journey that has brought her to Yoshida’s home. She helps Sayu understand that while she has found a safe place with Yoshida, it can’t last forever. At some point, Sayu will have to confront her past. Meanwhile, Yoshida runs into Mishima, who seems agitated. She offers to go home with him for a one-night stand. Yoshida declines, reminding her that Sayu is there. He soon discovers that Mishima was stalking him and Airi and saw them go to his apartment.
Later, as Yoshida walks Airi out, she tells him that while Sayu is a great girl, and he is doing a wonderful thing by taking care of her, Sayu is also quite unstable and doesn’t understand herself. She warns him to be careful before leaving. The post-credits scene introduces a new character, Kyouya Yaguchi. In episode 6, his past with Sayu might be revealed as he is one of the men who took her in before Yoshida. Asami and Yoshida might find this out and set out to ensure Sayu’s safety.
