Ep 8, we are just 2 episodes before the end! Spoiler The flashback at the beginning allows me to understand Neru better, and her relationship with Techi. Before they entered high school, Neru is the type of person who go against the norm (One might call her... Eccentric). Like eating furikake / dry japanese seasoning as her breakfast But after entering high school, Techi noticed that Neru has changed. We know that the school is strict about individuality, so this may be the cause Neru likes Techi because she fulfilled 3 things that for her, made her precious for her. I forgot what are they but the no 2, that "being with this person will let me grow (as a person)" They danced KataMirai!!!! Keyaki best dancers / average good, except for Pe, danced it together very precisely without music accompanying it! Neru went missing, and Techi went out looking for her. She find her in the pool, and Neru teased that Techi indeed care about her. The narrator says that this is "a form of love". In the next preview, we see that Fuu is the only one from her group to return to meet the other group. Neru gives Hirate a sign and suddenly a blackout happened. She also say that "one of the audiences (?) is the culprit"
