Shikimori Isn’t Just a Cutie Episode 3 Recap
While Izumi is busy with his own work in class, Inuzuka tells him that he has two coupons for movies that expire next Sunday. Because he has a side job that day, he can’t go to the theater and gives the ticket to Izumi so he can take someone with him. Listening to their conversation, Shikimori pretends to have no idea, but when her boyfriend asks her if she would like to join him, the main character can’t contain her excitement and agrees to go with him.
Later at home, Izumi ponders how romantic his movie date with Shikimori is likely to be when he suddenly remembers that their previous dates always ended badly. As he begins to remember all the misadventures, Izumi decides he must prepare accordingly. He collects all the necessary things in a bag, hoping that it will be useful in case of an emergency. Meanwhile, Shikimori struggles to decide which dress to wear.
The next day, Izumi leaves his house early, assuming that he will likely encounter a problem along the way. His hunch turns out to be correct, but given enough time, Izumi can deal with adversity and help others without being late. When he sees Shikimori, he is blown away by her stunning looks. The pair then reach the theater together, where they begin choosing the movie to watch. Izumi asks Shikimori to tell her what she likes, and the duo eventually decides to watch a horror movie.
Izumi believes he can handle the movie as he has seen more or less similar movies in the past. He also imagines offering his girlfriend some comfort in case she gets scared. However, as the movie begins, the table turns, Izumi can barely keep his eyes open and Shikimori has to give him some much needed emotional support. After the movie, the couple plans to go to a bakery, but when Izumi realizes he’s lost his wallet, they have to change their plans.
Fortunately, along the way, they accidentally meet Izumi’s parents and are invited to dinner by them. After they reach his house, his parents prepare the meal and everyone starts eating together. Shikimori loves the food and talks to her friend’s family without hesitation. Once they have eaten, Izumi falls asleep while his girlfriend helps his mother, Motoko, with the dishes. Shikimori finds out that Motoko is happy that she is dating her son and wants her to always be there for him. When Izumi wakes up, he sees Shikimori playing video games with his father.
Shikimori Isn’t Just a Cutie Episode 3 ends: Why does Motoko want Shikimori to always be there for her son?
Motoko has always been an overprotective mother who has seen his son struggle with misfortune. When Izumi was a young boy, she had to send her out of the house wearing a yellow helmet because she was afraid he would be seriously injured. Despite all precautions, he always got into trouble. Therefore, for years, Motoko experienced the pain of seeing her son get hurt.
But since Shikimori came into Izumi’s life, things have suddenly changed. Though his misfortune continued to haunt him, she has always stood by him and often saved him from catastrophic situations. Even as we are eating dinner together, a fork is about to pierce Izumi’s face, but Shikimori catches it at the right time.
Despite her unending love for her son, Motoko knows she can never protect Izumi like her friend has been doing for a while. Therefore, she wants Shikimori to always be there for him because she believes that he will be safe with him. Motoko’s trust in Shikimori speaks volumes about Izumi’s girlfriend’s dedication and sheer willpower to face whatever misfortunes come his way. So it’s very understandable why Mokoto feels this way.
