Finding Solace in Friendships & Irrevocable Confessions in ‘My Strawberry Film’ Episode 6

My Strawberry Film

Will things become different now that everybody (sans Ryo) has confessed their feelings? Let’s find out in ‘My Strawberry Film’ episode 6.

My Strawberry Film

Minami was reading a letter while on the school’s rooftop. The letter reads that it was the person’s last letter to the intended recipient, and they confessed that that person will always be their first love. But who sent it, and who was it intended for?

After reading the letter alone, Minami goes back down to their classroom and overhears Hikaru speaking with Ryo about how pretty she looks in her casual clothes. But Minami only has eyes for Chika, whose head was bent down on her desk. Just as she was looking at her, Chika got up and went out of the classroom, only pausing to look at Minami. But Minami runs after her and tells her that she looks cute, which prompts Chika to ask if she is that predictable. Minami nodded and hugged her friend. 

After a while, Ryo goes to the “warehouse”, seemingly waiting for someone. He looked disappointed when he saw that Minami entered the room. She asked him if he wished that it was Chika who came in, but Ryo said that he was just glad it was not a teacher. Then, the two talked about what happened on their group date. Minami said it was fun, and went on to ask Ryo about what happened between him and Chika. Ryo was surprised that she knew about what happened, but Minami said she just realized it because it was obvious from Chika’s expression. Ryo decided to be honest with Minami, saying he just never realized Chika’s feelings, thinking that he was not sensitive about her feelings for him. Minami, however, said that Ryo is sensitive to feelings, especially when it comes to Hikaru. Ryo was surprised that she brought that up, but Minami went on to say that he was probably filled with too many emotions regarding Hikaru. Ryo finally gave in and said that Minami seemed to be very observant, but she said that it was just that everyone was too transparent. Ryo expressed his sadness of feeling that their friendship might end, saying that he had fun with all of them. But Minami said that that it might not be the case, and that relationships can be mended. Ryo asked her if she had ever had a boyfriend before, and Minami said she had never had a boyfriend, instead, she had a lover. Ryo was surprised but relieved when he finally realized that he had something similar to Minami. But he still admitted that he can’t still admit his own feelings, but Minami said she feels the same way. Minami says they are each other’s safe zone, earning a smile from Ryo. Then, Hikaru and Chika entered the warehouse together, asking what they were talking about, and Minami quickly said the “theory of relativity”, earning curious looks from the two. But Hikaru said that they went there to look for them because apparently, the same person who uploaded another side of the old film uploaded another clip and they all wanted to talk about it.

After talking about it, the four friends went out to go home, but Hikaru seemed very sullen because Minami and Ryo were getting along well. Hikaru, then, asked Minami if he could walk her home and if they could have strawberry parfait from the same place. Minami hesitated to leave Chika and Ryo alone, but Chika nodded at her to tell her it was fine. At the cafe, Minami was visibly awkward with Hikaru. To make matters worse, Hikaru even confessed her feelings for her directly and even accused her of liking Ryo. This annoyed Minami even more, saying that he treats Ryo like Hikaru because they are both her friends. Then, she decided that she no longer wanted to eat the parfait. She left to pay for the dessert, with Hikaru saying he’d pay for it, but Minami insisted that they were there as friends so she still left the money before leaving. Hikaru tried running after her but to no avail.

Meanwhile, things are a bit better with Chika and Ryo. Chika asked him if he could just forget about her confession, but Ryo said it might be hard to do that. Chika, then, asked if they could still go back to being friends, and this time, Ryo said of course. Ryo, then, said that she should stop avoiding him, amidst Chika’s denial. But Chika eventually said yes she would not avoid him anymore. And things seem to be back to normal again. 

Hikaru goes back home after the rejection. He messaged Ryo, asking if they could meet at the park. Ryo came by a little bit later and saw a sad Hikaru. He talked about how he was rejected by Minami, but he realized that he didn’t mean to hurt her, but that was eventually what happened anyway. Hikaru asked Ryo if he liked someone, particularly Minami. Ryo was stunned and said, “How can I like her, when you’re there?”, shocking Ryo. Hikaru was surprised, saying that he thought what Ryo implied was that he liked him. Ryo nodded, and after a pause, he added that he liked him as a friend. Hikaru breathed a sigh of relief and pushed him playfully, saying he should not joke about things like that. Ryo looked like his heart was broken to pieces, but still tried to play around with Hikaru.

Writer’s thoughts:

Hikaru is just a very annoying teenage boy, but that’s what teenagers are, anyway. Minami and Ryo found solace in each other (is it because they’re both gay?) and it feels such a relief because Ryo can finally say what’s on his mind, regarding all of the feelings he’s been keeping. Minami, on the other hand, has not done anything wrong because she has made it very clear from the beginning that she only wants to be friends with Hikaru, and Hikaru needs to understand it the hard way. But what will happen in the next episode? Is Hikaru ever gonna see how important Ryo is to him, not just as a friend?
