Misuzu saves Yukito by pushing Kano off him. Her sister apologizes to them and tells Kano’s story. The summer after their mother died, they went to a festival. Kano wanted a ballon because she thought she could fly with it. Her sister told her that it wouldn’t work but bought her one anyway. When she was about to take the balloon though, a guy bumped into her and it flew away. She explained that she told Kano that her mother was up in the sky because she and her father didn’t want to tell someone as young as her that she was really dead. One day they found this feather. After that, Kano started acting strange and was scared of bright lights. She frequently tried to slit her wrists, so her sister tied the bandanna on her. The next day, Misuzu tells Yukito that she had a dream where she was flying again, except this time she was sad. Yukito then meets up with Michiru again, who’s gathering garbage. She says she has a hobby of collecting things and Yukito tells her it’s stupid. They see Tohno and her mother walking, and Michiru comments that Tohno looks sad. Yukito calls her over, and asks if Michiru told him who she was with. Yukito says that he knows its her mother because he helped her the other day. When he finally gets to work, he sees Kano, completely normal again. He discovers a letter from her saying that she’s going to the sky, asking to make sure her sister doesn’t overwork herself, and apologizing for hurting him. He, Misuzu, and Kano’s sister go to look for her. They find her near where the feather is, somehow bleeding without external injury. Yukito takes the feather and puts it on Kano. He uses his powers and hears the voice of a woman named Shiraho. She said that her first child Yakumo was born with a strange mark on his right arm. He caused a feather to fall from the sky. Then bad things began to happen. Her husband left to go to war. She fled to another village, and most of the people there died from a plague. The people believe that she bought the plague and she’s told to sacrifice her child. She refuses and sacrifices herself instead. Then they hear Kano talking to her mother. She’s offered the chance to come with her, but then her mother changes her mind because she doesn’t have any feathers. (Huh?) Then Shiraho sings a rather annoying song. In the real word, Kano wakes up and the mark on her arm disappears. She thanks Yukito for the advice he gave her for when she meets her mother, but he tells her it was her magic. Her bandanna blows away towards her mother. Okay. This episode made absolutely, positively no sense. Are Kano and Yakumo one in the same? I thought Yakumo was a boy? It’s impossible anyway because she’s not the oldest child. I’m hopelessly confused now.

Aww I absolutely love their interactions Hey! Watch where you're spraying that Just seeing Shiraho makes me confused
