Hige wo Soru Episode 8 Spoilers

In episode 7, Asami and Sayu spot a car that the former has seen quite a few times before their store. They wonder who is inside the car and what their intentions are as they never come in and buy anything. At Yoshida’s office, Mishima becomes envious that both Airi and Sayu have Yoshida’s phone number, and she doesn’t. She later invites Airi for lunch, during which both women realize that the other knows about Sayu. Mishima directly asks the older woman if she (Airi) is in love with Yoshida. When Airi answers in the positive, Mishima asks if she (Airi) isn’t afraid that Sayu will take Yoshida from her.

The episode denotes the differences between the two women. While Mishima believes in being direct and forward with the object of her affection, Airi is more passive and mature. Later, Mishima confesses her feelings to Yoshida. While he doesn’t say anything in return, they exchange their numbers. Meanwhile, Sayu finds out that the mysterious vehicle belongs to her brother, Issa Ogiwara, the CEO and chairperson of Ogiwara Foods Corporation. Although Sayu manages to evade him with Kyouya’s help, she wonders if the decision of when to return to her home is no longer hers to make. In episode 8, Yoshida will likely take Sayu to a summer festival at a nearby Shinto shrine. Sayu might reveal that she never has attended a festival before and truly enjoy her time there.
