YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of This World (Episode 8) – The Sparrows and Swallows Know Not

YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of This World Title

Takuya wakes with a splitting headache, although luckily for him Eriko offers to use her secret head massaging technique. Meanwhile, Mio thinks she found something about the curse!

The Sparrows and Swallows Know Not

Mio’s been puzzling over the tapestry at Ryuuzouji’s house and she’s possibly made some startling discoveries. However, she overhears a discussion between her father, the Mayor and some unsavoury characters. The next morning he tells her that she is going to continue her studies in America, leaving her little time to get to the bottom of the mystery.

Takuya woke with a splitting headache, so much so that he was about to ditch school altogether until Eriko offered to give him a top secret head massage that is guaranteed to take care of him. Of course, Takuya assumed it would be much more than it was, but it was enough to convince him to stay. In class, Mio told Takuya that she had made a discovery and wanted him to come to her house to see it.

He agreed and got caught up in some shenanigans. After escaping the wrath of her father, they made it out to the mysterious mountain and started to search for a secret opening, but Mio tripped and hurt her ankle. Takuya carried her to school to get some bandages where she confided in him about her father, unaware that Yuuki was listening at the window.

Episode Thoughts

This episode seemed to focus most of its time on Eriko and Mio, which is obviously a great idea all around. It did a number of smaller things and that was to set up the direction for this arc. Mio has found something that needs to be investigated and we still don’t know why Eriko’s clothes were lying on the bed in the last episode. Mitsuki has a role to play in things too as she’s the like back to Ryuuzouji. Things are shaping up nicely.

Ecchi Highlights

Eriko Takeda – The Teacher!

Kanna Hatano – The Transfer Student!

Mio Shimazu – The History Student!

Mitsuki Ichijou – The Secretary!

  1. ERIKO for the Win!! 😍

    • Absolutely. Eriko has been best girl since episode 1 and I can’t see it changing. Mio is a close second though.

      • Mio is #1 for me, all comes down to the hair though… level bangs plus drills? That’s a winner right there.
