Sorry Ritsuko. I think you may be destined to be forever alone.
At least if these two princes keep playing jazz to distract themselves from fighting each other.
They even ran out together and eloped, right in the middle of the ceremony! Scandalous!
For those who aren’t aware, Chet Baker was a jazz trumpeter and singer, which is of course why Sentarou was upset that Yurika was looking at that record. (Also, with John Coltrane‘s death, we can date this part of the series to July 17, 1967.)
Sentarou takes a page out of Kaoru’s playbook. So aggressive!
The animation of the kiss itself was superb. You’ll note that Sentarou actually stops before kissing her, even before the noise from downstairs interrupts. It doesn’t seem like he was going to go through with it without her (implied) consent. But then Yurika herself moves in to kiss, only to be interrupted by Jun downstairs.
I think that’s why she tells Kaoru it’s her fault. It’s unclear whether the one she feels she betrayed is Sentarou or Jun, but it could just as well apply to either.
Jun is not very sensitive here, to say the least.
I can’t really blame Sentarou.
