‘Realizing The Shocking Truth in EP7 of ‘My Strawberry Film’

My Strawberry Film

Ryo finally confessed his feelings… only to take it back and say “as friends”. But we can’t really blame the shy little gay boy who has a crush on his straight best friend. Let’s find out what happens in this episode of ‘My Strawberry Film’. 

My Strawberry Film

After confessing his feelings for Hikaru and saying he likes him as a friend, Hikaru pushed him jokingly, and then both went home. 

Hikaru reminisces about when he first saw Ryo, saying that he has always been curious about him since he saw him. Their first meeting was a bit different from what Hikaru knows because Ryo made it happen when they talked. He intentionally bumped into Ryo’s desk and began talking to him because he found him fascinating. It was the beginning of their friendship where Hikaru would talk about whatever he liked with Ryo. Even more so, they began bonding over Ryo’s fondness for different sounds that he could create as his music. Hikaru found it “dazzling” that Ryo could create music, unlike him who easily gets bored. He found that he envied Hikaru’s passion most of all and that he wanted to find his own, but to no avail. 

Hikaru, however, found that he can just be himself when he’s with Ryo. But once he found his “passion” in something – rather, someone – he felt captivated by it. However, he thought that even if things did not turn out the way he wanted, he knew that Ryo would always be by his side… at least he thought he would. But things became a bit awkward for Hikaru after Ryo’s “confession” at the swing. He decided he would ignore Ryo, with the guise of having a stomachache. 

On the other hand, Minami approached a teacher named Takahashi and asked if he was a graduate of the school, which surprised the teacher for some reason. Was there something Minami is keeping?

After being ignored by his best friend, Ryo left the classroom to go to the rooftop. Chika, being the good friend she is, followed Ryo up to the rooftop to ask him what was wrong. Ryo said there was nothing wrong, but Chika saw right through him. She asked him if it was about Hikaru, and guessed if Hikaru confessed to Minami. Ryo quietly confirmed it, and when Chika asked if they were already dating, Ryo said they were not. The two, then, continued to sit in silence until Ryo started playing the music he played. While sitting together and listening to the music, Ryo asked Chika if they wanted to try dating. Chika was shocked. However, she said that although she felt happy that he said that, she knew that it was impossible. Chika cried, saying, it would be impossible for the two of them to date because she knows that he likes Hikaru. She, then, left him on the rooftop. After a while, Ryo went down and managed to come across Minami who asked where Chika was. Ryo silently said that he did something wrong, but when Minami asked what it was, Ryo just apologized and said that he did something wrong.

Minami ran to where Chika was and sat down quietly next to her. Chika thanked her (probably for staying with her), but Minami also thanked her because she had a fun time going around and figuring out what the old film was about. Then, Chika finally talked about what happened on the rooftop earlier and how Ryo asked if they could just start dating. She cried and said she wished she could turn back time to before they found the film. Minami felt sad, but Chika reassured her that she did not mean it to be about her, Minami stopped her and said she just felt lonely. Then, she walked away. 

The group of four has walked away from each other.

But something happened– someone uploaded a video and asked everyone to meet at the warehouse tonight. The four of them got the message and all went to the warehouse. Everybody felt awkward around each other, knowing everything that happened between all of them. 

But it wasn’t just the four of them who were in the warehouse – a teacher was also there! Matsuoka-sensei was in the warehouse. She asked what was going on and who was playing a prank. They all said that they had also just seen the post, and that was why they came there. But Matsuoka-sensei was not having it, saying that they should not be in the warehouse at all. Before they left the warehouse, Minami asked the teacher if they could do something first, and it was then that she revealed that the film was actually hers! All of them stood in their place, stunned by what Minami said.

 

Writer’s thoughts:

What is even happening in this series? Hikaru clearly also has confusing feelings over his best friend, but he doesn’t know how to deal with it. But it’s also quite equally confusing that he chooses to ignore his best friend rather than talk about it with him when he did not do that when Minami flat-out rejected him. Ryo is not any better, because he also chose to ask a girl who likes her if they can date, when he is clearly in love with his guy best friend. All of the green flag things he did to not hurt Chika just went down the drain. Chika, on the other hand, only wanted to help Ryo. But she was also hurt when Ryo asked for them to date. It seems like it is true, that hurt people hurt people. But what will happen in the last episode? Will they eventually all keep the friendship? Did Minami actually time-travel for this old film to be hers? Let’s find out in the last episode of ‘My Strawberry Film’.
