Atsushi remembered the time when he was alive at the start of the episode. Things between Ryousuke and Rokka seemed to be stuck thanks, in part, to the ghost of Atsushi making life hard for Ryousuke. Despite this, Ryousuke took Rokka again to dinner. Things were getting steamy until an insult from Ryousuke directed at Atsushi reminded Rokka of how much she suffered and cried when her husband died.
Episode 2 of Natsuyuki Rendezvous was very bittersweet. In the one hand, Rokka and Ryousuke seem very attracted to each other and ready to move to a more physical relationship. But at the same time, Rokka has not fully come to terms with Atsushi's death. I am enjoying this series tremendously, and I look forward to more great episodes. This episode gets a 10 out 10.
