Minori and her friends make some memories and other girls slowly change opinions hoping more friendships gains momentum before time runs out. Regret is awful thing for kids to feel

Episode 8

With many classmates at the festival that the wise thing to do would be to hang out at the shore, and they meet at the lighthouse where they see the town in a much different light. Now that Takashi and Kyoko understands Minori's mind that the next question is who sent the text message because it wasn't Minori who did it. Seeing that it appears that Minori ran away from the hospital that I wouldn't be surprised if it was her aunt who sent it looking to get her back to the hospital.

Episode 9

As it turns out, while Minori did write the message, she's not the one who sent it because she didn't have the service. She was writing messages, but just couldn't bring herself to send them, except for that one message. So everybody takes shelter from the rain at an old beach hut. And now that the rain has stopped, Minori has gone missing again. It's great that they are together again, but now Minori has vanished.

Episode 10

As it turns out, Minori went back to the hospital and passed away. She could have gone out of town and be taken care of by distant relatives where she had a better chance at surviving, but she chose to stay, and after having one last moment with Takashi and Kyoko, she's dead. Quite sudden that was, and it turns out that the text that she saved was different than what they received. The mystery of the text remains, but nevertheless they know what came about with Minori, and that was just sad.

Minori died after having a moment with her friends this story was very tragic. A young girl who is sickly and gets bullied and finally makes friends but doesn't have time to enjoy them
With 2 more episodes to go I wonder what direction this will go since Minori is gone?

Episode 11

Somehow, everybody was able to read the other texts that Minori had written, but deleted that explains what has happened during her time in the hospital leading up to this day. Most notably, there's the clione cell phone strap that represents togetherness. Things sure were pretty bleak on her view that includes wondering what will happen to her once she dies as one of the old guys she became close friends with died shortly before she did. Now that everybody is aware of what Minori had to go through, it will be interesting to see how this ends.

Episode 12 (Finale)

And so it ends with everybody looking to being better people in the future. Those bullies decide to give up bullying seeing that they wanted to apologize to her, but now that she's dead that the opportunity isn't there anymore, while Tkashi and Kyoko stay on the beach determined to text Minori and fulfill the promise. Thus, everybody has changed for the better in memory of Minori. It's a shame that they won't ever see Minori as an adult as that would have really been something.

Final Thoughts

This show did a nice job at being emotional and tearjerking, while doing a decent job with character development given its short run time.  But that's about it for the good things as just about everything else had issues with the biggest ones being the bad animation quality and the characters doing so many cringeworthy things that made this hard to watch at times.  In the end, it was still worth watching because of the drama and sadness involved.

Grade: C- (6/10)

I was hoping maybe they could text the phone and get a response- but still good messages on bullying in general and how maybe people don't know circumstance give everyone a chance on friendship. This anime goes in hand with Silent Voice really good for younger kids to see what damage is being done
