Eternity: Shinya no Nurekoi Channel ♡ Episode 8


Jun 20, 2024

Okay, gather 'round kids. Episode 8 of "Eternity: Shinya no Nurekoi Channel ♡" is like that one kid who says they hate candy, but then eats all your Skittles.

We got Kanzaki, the secretary who's like a loyal puppy dog to the OLD boss, even though he's like SUPER gone. Then there's Hino, the new boss, who everyone calls "The Ice King." He's like that popsicle in your freezer—all cold and stuff—except he makes everyone cry. Literally.

So, Hino gets sick, because even Ice Kings catch colds, duh. Kanzaki feels bad, 'cause she's nice like that, and takes care of him. This is where it gets juicy. Remember the Skittles thing? Hino's all like, "I hate women who are all fake and stuff," while totally undressing Kanzaki with his eyes. Talk about mixed messages! It's like he wants to be the Romeo to her Juliet, but like, the rated-R version.

They go on a date to a fireworks show, which is about as romantic as you can get, and Hino starts acting all lovey-dovey. But then Kanzaki freaks out because, hello, mixed messages! She's like, "He hates me! He hates me!" and tries to run away. It's like a soap opera, but with more, um, "adult" themes.

Spoiler alert: They totally kiss and make up, or at least, make out. Hino confesses his love, which is less of a snowflake and more like a whole avalanche at this point. Turns out, under that frosty exterior, he's just a big softie.

The episode ends with them being all couple-y and stuff, proving that sometimes, love is like a box of chocolates: You never know what you're gonna get, but it might be surprisingly delicious...even if it comes with a side of emotional whiplash.
