In episode 8 of Natsuiro Kiseki, the girls decided to take a trip before Saki moved to an island near Tokyo. Oddly enough, they ended up going to the place where Saki is set to move. Once in a boat that was going to take them to the island, the girls had fun and shared some memories. Throughout the episode Saki was upset, and she kept having dreams where she arrived to school and was ignored by the girls and the rest of the classroom. The highlight of the episode was Natsumi challenging Saki to tell her parents that she does not want to move.
This was a very relaxing episode where not too much craziness happened. It is nice for the series to move to a different setting. Also, I have praised Sunrise's excellent animation throughout the first seven episodes, but the CGI used in this episode looks a bit cheap. I can only give this episode a 8 out of 10 because I believe that the creators of the series could do more with the character and to a lesser extent, the plot.
