I need to go back and watch this all again.
It filled me with a desire to get stuff done, and for a whole month after i finished it, I was doing so much more than I usually did.
Looks like two really good friends enjoying a completely platonic evening together.
Sorry to crush your dreams anon. Here, have more fluffy to make it better.
Also, if you're going to keep responding to my shitposting, please bump with a picture or a gif next time. Thanks, pal.
In the books, yes. But Kyoani rewrote many scenes between Shuichi and Kumiko, including the mountain top duet, and replaced him with Reina. It's very obvious that neither Kumiko nor Reina are straight characters in the anime.
