Episode Summary: Riki sits on the ground in shock. Kyousuke let go of his hand while running away from the security guard. Riki thinks back to his whole life that Kyousuke has been there for him, protecting him and guiding him. Now Kyousuke has left him behind and everything is sad and dramatic. Later that night (because no one is caught by the guard) Riki tries to put everything together. Kyousuke has done everything recently for Rin. A master plan to make Rin grow up and be okay on her own. The minute Kyousuke got back from his trip he started this Little Busters crazy baseball team and note giving cat mayhem. Riki is upset at all this nonsense and it spills over into the next day. Everyone who is left goes to say goodbye to Rin outside. Well the boys and Komari. The scene is weird as no one's eyes are seen but Riki's. Kyousuke makes small talk, that Rin is off doing good things. Rin gets in the car without saying much. Riki is seething as his anger makes him have more crazy. He has decided Kyousuke is in control of everything. He has even made all the girls stay home to further isolate Rin/make sure she went to this other school. Riki looks at Masato and decides the boy knows what is going on due to his weird wording the other day. But what about Kengo? So Riki takes Kengo aside to explain his level of insanity. Kengo sits and listens to Riki's theory....and agrees that Kyousuke has pulled strings to do this to Rin. Now Riki isn't upset that Kyousuke made Rin grow up, just his methods. That Kyousuke is okay with splitting up the Little Busters despite it meaning so much to people. Kengo is like yes these are our dear friends and we won't let Kyousuke break it up. Riki is happy Kengo is at least on his side. This happiness doesn't last long as Rin tests Riki a lot throughout the week. As the day go on there are increasing levels of sadness. No one is talking to her and she is struggling to make friends with strangers. Riki tells Rin to do her best but he knows how that means nothing. Rin eventually breaks down in tears.
With that and the information that Kyousuke has blocked Rin's phone from Komari's Riki loses it. He goes to rescue Rin from her school when Kyousuke appears at his door and stops him. Kyousuke tells Riki not to go which makes Riki even more upset. Kyousuke acts like Rin has to do this. To calm Riki down Kyousuke promises Rin can come home on the weekends. Riki is like fine and wonders how Kyousuke can do that. The weekend finally arrives and Rin appears in a catatonic state. She just lays in Riki's bed and refuses to speak or move. Riki is distraught and doesn't want Rin to return. He tells Kengo his concerns. Kengo decides that Riki needs to fight Kyousuke. Riki is like um....how will I win? Kengo says he will help so Riki agrees to this insanity. Riki finds Kyousuke and explains the level of angerness. Kyousuke decides that the competition will be hitting home runs. Masato appears and says he will be Kyousuke's partner. There is a lot worry because Masato is so competitive he might win despite Rin being on the lone. Both pairs miss hitting the first ball. As it rains harder Kyousuke suggests just hitting one homerun to solve this. Masato connects so it is up to Kengo. Kengo breaks out the believe in me Riki card. Believe in your partner. Riki gets all sparkly and believes in his strongest and best friend. But just as Kengo goes to hit the ball he sees Miyuki across the way and misses. Everything is :( until Kengo roars that Kyousuke is a cheater and tries to beat his face in. Riki and Masato hold Kengo back as Kyousuke walks away the winner. Masato eventually walks away too and Riki thinks the Little Busters are broken. He goes to see Rin and realizes she can't go back. He tells Rin they are leaving now. As they leave the school Rin wants to tell Komari but Riki insists the note to Masato is enough. Riki then starts the long journey to some old house they used to play in as kids. Riki refuses to let go of Rin, saying he will watch over her forever now. After reaching said house Riki does his best to take care of Rin as she plays with cats. Soon a bunch of police officers come and haul them away in the most dramatic way possible. Riki realizes he was never capable of protecting Rin. THE END!
Perhaps Kyousuke is dead though. Because while his plan to save Rin in some way is working Riki is becoming more and more pissed. Like yes push Riki away from me as I am a pancake. It's almost like Riki can't emotionally put the pieces together. Riki was used too, maybe more than Rin as I thought all these tasks were for Riki. All the girls wanted or needed Riki's help. Rin was just a bonus friend after the fact. I am sure closer to the end of the series this will all make sense. For now Riki is so pissed he doesn't see how none of this adds up. Just that Kyousuke has used Rin. Forced her into things. Lies. Riki can't handle the lies but...I bet he can't handle the truth either. X__X
Since this episode was just one giant suck...Bye Rin. This was....so sad and weird at the same time. Riki is so far in his delusions of the truth he thinks that Kyousuke ordered all the other girls to skip class to avoid this situation. Because Rin would have stayed had 4 more people were being weird around her? Okay Riki. So what is stopping you from seeing the girls yourself? I hope Riki is either forced to forget about the girls soon or he tries to find them because just mentioning them is odd. Kyousuke was basically peace out with his sister and Rin said goodbye to no one. Like oh have fun on your adventure, you are helping so many people. Rin was upset with Riki so she said goodbye to no one. Makes sense to me.
Yes I accept this all and will aid you in your task of saving Rin and the Little Busters. Nothing weird at all...
