|Episode 26 - Friendship is Endless|
Mikan failed the exam and has to re-take it, and if she doesn't pass she might be dropped to the little kids class A..
Otonoshi is graduating to the Junior school.. I think I remember this from the manga but not really.
Mikan is mad when she hears that Hotaru might be leaving the school to do research for a company.. Hotaru comes and tells her that she'll be doing research after finishing this grade.. and Mikan assumes it means she'll be leaving.. just like last time when she left without telling her... Mikan doesn't attend the graduation ceremony, and Natsume finds her near some sakura trees... she asks him what he would do if Luca decided to leave without telling him.. he probably wouldn't say anything.
Mikan writes a farewell letter to Hotaru, but when she goes to her room, it's already empty... a robot turtle is there with a letter for Mikan.. just a think to help her with her studying..
Mikan has to go and write her exam, and the others all say they'll go look for Hotaru for her, so that they can stop her and make her say goodbye before leaving...
even Natsume and Luca step in to try and stop Hotaru.. but Hotaru makes Luca and the giant bird go away by spreading around that embarrassing picture she always used to bargain with him..
love the weird slapstick shit that Hotaru always does even in the most serious of situations... of course it turns out that Hotaru isn't actually leaving the academy, she's just moving to a different dorm building.
