Here’s episode 4!
This drama gets more and more interesting each episode, and imho this episode is the best so far!
Niko-chan gets the spotlight this time. We get to understand her character and her struggles more, and how Jo made a difference on her.
There’s some enlightenment about Haruguchi as well, who finally opens up to Jo about her condition.
Nishi-san starts to show his true colors which I think will escalate even more in later episodes.
