A Quick Recap on Episode 12!

Yuki discovers that Tooru’s family is quite rich and that she is embarrassed that their social status is suddenly recognized. Christmas is just around the corner and Kyoko asks Izumi to bake a cake for her family. Then Kyoko gladly accepts Izumi’s request.

However, she politely refuses to spend Christmas with the Hori family. She refuses as she was previously engaged to the horror of Scout, Kyousuke, and Yuriko. Yuki quickly realizes that Tooru and Ishikawa’s relationship is very similar to that of their two brothers.

Since Izumi’s shadow holds all he has been trying to bury from his past, and graduation is about closing a chapter. He finally faces his last self. In the meeting of who he is versus who he was, there is a consideration of how fate brought him into Kyoko.

And with facing his past and embracing his future, it seems Izumi may have not only healed from what has happened. Also, he has forgiven himself for prolonging the life he currently loves and enjoys.

Graduation Day

With graduation coming upon everyone, it freaks out some. Remi worries Sakura will be done with her, while Yanagi wants one last hoorah. Yuki is afraid of the changes coming about, and nearly everyone has something they are going through. But with promises to hang out, and more, those more fearful of losing their peer find themselves placated.

From Horimiya Episode 13

While everyone is worried about remaining connected and making plans, this doesn’t include Kyoko and Izumi. He is pretty much part of the family now, and while we still don’t get to see Izumi’s family interact with Kyoko. We can assume it goes both ways.
