|Episode 20 - Who Will Have the Last Dance?|
I definitely remember this part from the manga...
except this subplot I don't remember... Mikan is talking to that star mole guy during the festival closing ceremony... he tells her to keep quiet and not ask questions about these 3 school principals, one of whom is a kid... they act like royalty or something... Jinno is about to yell at Mikan, but then a teacher pulls him away... and now him and all the teachers are confronting Narumi, who is about to give something to Mikan which would allow her to contact the outside world... none of them want him to do this, saying it'll be a repeat of an incident from the past... Narumi disagrees, saying giving her this will make it so that doesn't happen again.
a bunch of Technical class students get called up for awards... and Hotaru wins the Rookie award..
Mikan is all pumped and is stopping Hotaru from going to the stage because of congratulating her so much... and then, they called an award for the Special Ability class.. Tsubasa and the girl both comment on how this was such a typical delayed reaction for Mikan...
then there's a really emotional scene where Narumi gives Mikan letter from her grandpa.. she gets tears as soon she recognizes the handwriting...
the 2nd half of the ep is the Last Dance part... Mikan and her friends run into Luca and Natsume, and they here some people gossiping about how Luca is going to dance with Mikan.. they both deny it. Sumire then chases the gossipers away... Mikan is still with them, and Luca tries to run away and Natsume does something totally unexpected and just pushes Luca towards Mikan. Mikan asks Luca just to a normal dance, which he agrees to because it's less serious than the Last Dance.
Later, Hotaru goes up to Luca and warns him.. "that girl is slow"
Mikan finds Natsume sitting alone in the grass, and wants to dance with him too.. but he tells her off and says she won't allow her to come any closer to his dark secrets.. Mikan just thinks he's gone back to being a jerk again, but Natsume address her as Mikan to show that he's serious... that makes her frozen and speechless.. she gets nervous now when people ask her who she's going to dance with in the Last Dance.
Luca overheard Natsume and Mikan.. he tells Natsume that he should go to the dance, and that Mikan is probably gonna pick him instead of (Luca)..
it turns out... Hotaru ends up choosing Mikan as her Last Dance partner.
