This latest outing of Wind ~ A Breath of Heart manages the feat of combining two mostly-distinct stories into one half-length episode, involving a shopping not-a-date and a movie sorta-date. Also of note: the use of Edvard Grieg's "Death of Ase" as the public-domain soundtrack for the movie, and the random tricks people in the park are doing with their town-given powers for the sake of amusement. Nice to have a "people with powers" series without any tournaments or "confrontations with random thugs in a restaurant" scenes.

In this episode, Asami and Kyousuke try to get away from the city and all their prying friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family members for some alone time. Guess how many of these obstacles they don't encounter! But at least they have time for some unerotic asphyxiation play and reenacting a classic scene from Lady and the Tramp, albeit with an Asian twist on things.
