Mashiro-iro Symphony : The Color of Lovers s01e09
Titre original : Same-Colored Couple
Shingo brings Miu back to his house to rest for the night, and she goes back home the following morning. To their surprise, Shingo and Sana find Miu in the club room looking after the kittens. The Nuko Club's advisor, Machi Yatsuzuka, places the female kitten Miu with one of her friends, since they could only take that one. Sana volunteers to take the male kitten Shingo home with her, despite Miu's previous protests. Miu invites Shingo to her house because of what happened the day before. At her house, Shingo meets Miu's playful mother, who he at first thinks is her older sister. She tells him that her love of animals stems from a traumatic experience as a child when a pet cat died. After they part ways at the park that night, Shingo returns to Miu's house because he forgot his cell phone, and accidentally sees Miu in the nude as she runs out into the hallway. Miu promises Shingo she will depend on him more, instead of shouldering things all by herself. The next day, Sana runs out of the club room after noticing a difference in how Miu and Shingo act towards each other. Airi stops Sana and suspects that she is upset because of Shingo.
