Um. Well, this episode would have impressed me more had I not seen a very similar story before in the climax episode of (WARNING! HUGE SPOILER!) another series.
Too bad that Asa has now officially limited herself to "Onee-san" status. But Nerine confirmed my theory about the first meeting with Rin-kun - and to see this super-shy girl in fact being the first one to kiss the boy was quite a surprise!
And if I got Rin-kun's words correctly then we now know what Kaede blamed him for in that nightmare he had early in this series... this is something that will make things a lot more difficult for Kaede: Does she feel guilty for this, and therefore work so much for Rin-kun?
Still, this episode is a kind of reset for all girls to their previous position: Both princesses have understood they need to care more for Rin-kun's feelings, and Asa as well as Kaede should know by now how important they are for the boy as well, so everyone is back at the starting line again. I still don't see Primula as a major player in the game: Just like Asa who's the onee-san, Primula is the imouto, and Kaede is the twin sister of Rin-kun somehow. All three have to overcome their respective "sister status" if they want to compete with the princesses.
With Nerine confessing so much to Rin-kun this time, the next one should be Sia... after all there's that unresolved issue with her mirror which I'm quite curious about.
