Episode 101- Okay, real talk for a moment. You see this outfit? It’s Haruna’s Outfit from way back when. If this was just the skirt or top repeated, one could say Makoto and Haruna just shop at the same stores, or even that Makoto bought it used at a thrift shop. But no- it’s both pieces. Which means it’s probably a hand-me-down. A hand-me-down from your teacher. Because your parents are dead and don’t have nearly as much money as all your friends (Makoto has the least amount of outfits of the main five in the anime). Because you are an orphan, which is often forgotten.
If this isn’t enough of reason for you to go and make fanwork of Haruna-onee-chan and Makoto sharing clothes and being cute friends together, I will be very disappointed in you.
