Horimiya Episode 6 Spoilers

In episode 5, Kyoko doesn’t go to school for a few days even though she has completely recovered from the fever. She was awake when Izumi made his confession and doesn’t know yet how to deal with it. She then learns that Souta saw Izumi with his arms around a girl and becomes jealous. Kyoko returns to school the following day and has an awkward encounter with Izumi. It is revealed that the girl Souta saw was Shindo’s girlfriend, Chika. Izumi was helping both Shindo and Chika walk after they twisted their ankles. However, Kyoko remains angry because he keeps referring to the other girl with her first name and hurls her books at his face.

Kyoko later discovers that Izumi does so because he doesn’t know Chika’s last name. Kyoko’s wandering father, Kyosuke, returns and starts teasing both Izumi and Kyoko. This leads to Kyoko declaring that she and Izumi are in a relationship. They subsequently begin dating. Izumi feels awkward around Toru until the latter assures him that they are still friends. Elsewhere, Sakura watches Toru from the school window and feels unattractive when Remi approaches her. Sakura later realizes how wonderful of a friend Remi is and tells her how she feels about Toru.

The episode ends as Souta comes home with a friend and hears his sister calling Izumi “stupid” again. He exasperatedly notes that they are fighting again. Episode 6 is set to air on February 14, so it might use Valentine’s Day as its main theme.
