Ok, here’s my disclaimer: I do not own Yumeiro Patissiere or these images, I got them from the internet and I linked every single one to where I got them from. I’m sorry if I’m breaking some rule because I’m really hazy about copyright laws.

|Ichigo has a hard time with the extreme course-load at St. Marie and starts to get homesick. She is cheered up by Hanabusa, one of the boys in her group.|
Anyway, we get to see Ichigo fail at a bunch of subjects, including French, Math, etc. We also get to watch a cool flower arrangement class led by Hanabusa’s mother! I think Ichigo’s flower arrangement is very creative! Too bad I couldn’t get a picture of it. You’ll just have to go watch it ;)
Anyway, Ichigo gets so depressed and lost again when she fails at the next baking job and starts missing her family. She even starts hallucinating a little (ok, a LOT). We get some cool flashbacks. We even get to see Ichigo’s old friends!
Naturally, Ichigo bursts into tears. I can’t say I blame her, the poor girl has been abused by her classmates (some of them, and not physically), it’s really putting a damp spot in her dream to be a patissiere. Anyone would lose hope.
Then Hanabusa takes her down to a really pretty lake, telling her that it’s the best place to come when you’re feeling troubled or upset. At this time, Ichigo sees Hanabusa looking at his reflection and flipping his hair, coming to the conclusion that he is a narcissist. This was extremely funny to watch.
Anyway, Ichigo finds a rose garden and Hanabusa tells her the story of his parents and the origin of his name Satsuki.
Ichigo remembers her lesson and successfully makes some beautiful choux creme. Added with Hanabusa’s trademark handmade “roses”, it looks like this:
But are yours?
Anyway, Rumi, Kashino and Andou appear soon after Ichigo hesitates to eat the puffs.
Anyway, Ichigo is one of the best examples of the typical clumsy and stupid heroine that I’ve seen since Usagi from Sailor Moon. And it’s not even that funny, usually. But it’s all right because Ichigo is trying her best. She finally learns to appreciate the good friends she has at St. Marie Academy, and resolves to stay in St. Marie no matter what happens. Good for you. :)
