Shikimori Isn’t Just a Cutie Episode 9 Recap
After arriving at school in the morning, Inuzuka informs his classmates that Izumi is not well and asks him to take notes that day. However, it turns out that Nekozaki, Shikimori, and Hachimitsu already know about it. But the titular protagonist is sad that Izumi didn’t tell her about the notes, but turned to Inuzuka for help.
Meanwhile, Inuzuka is horrified that his friend’s girlfriend sees him as a rival for some reason. Later that day, he even asks Nekozaki if she hates him. However, Nekozaki states that Shikimori always speaks highly of him when they are alone. While leaving for Izumi’s house, Inuzuka is joined by Shikimori, who also wants to check on her boyfriend.
They first go to a store to get some supplies for Izumi, but are surprised that Hachimitsu is waiting for them outside. She was actually sent by Nekozaki to make sure there are no problems between Shikimori and Inuzuka. So, when Hachimitsu meets them, she states that the titular protagonist unknowingly sees Inuzuka as a brother. The latter, too, finds the observation fascinating and wonders if it makes Shikimori see him as a rival.
Therefore, Hachimitsu successfully manages to ensure that the differences between Shikimori and Inuzuka do not become too great. Later that day, Nekozaki and Shikimori go to a shopping center where the former sees Kamiya. Though her boyfriend is reluctant to talk to her, Nekozaki greets Kamiya and invites her to spend the rest of the day with them. Although they have only competed as rivals on the field, Shikimori and Kamiya seem to be comfortable with each other.
When Nekozaki goes to the toilet, the main character even asks her new boyfriend to play a game with him. The two end up winning a lot of toys by the time Nekozaki returns, but she’s glad they get along. After spending some time at the mall, the trio head to the basketball court to play. Unfortunately, two delinquents already there let them play alone on the condition that they play against them, unaware that two of their rivals are great athletes.
When the game starts, Shikimori and Kamiya show great athleticism to outperform the challengers, and within the first few minutes the difference between them is noticeable. The challengers don’t last long and Shikimori and Kamiya win the game.
Shikimori Isn’t Just Any Cutie Episode 9 Ends: Why Does Kamiya Apologize to Nekozaki? Will she be friends with Shikimori?
After a long day, Kamiya and Nekozaki say goodbye to Shikimori before going home. While on the road, the two friends begin to talk about their early interactions at school, and Kamiya realizes something. She apologizes to Nekozaki for declining her invitations to hang out with her. Though she doesn’t explain why she’s suddenly saying such a thing, it seems like she’s spending the day with her and Shikimori has changed her mind about them.
Kamiya is famous in school so she is approached by many students who want to spend time with her. Unfortunately, this has further isolated her as it has become difficult to form meaningful friendships. But spending time with Nekozaki and Shikimori seems to have changed that, which is why she even tells the latter that she will meet her as a friend at school the next day. So not only did Kamiya manage to befriend Shikimori, but it seems that she also bonded with a Nekozaki by getting to know her.
