Tomo-chan is a Girl Episode 8 Recap

Tomo-chan is a Girl continues Tomo’s story where she continues to find growth in her bond with Jun, who is continuously seeing her as a woman. Her friends encourage this to the point of suggesting she goes to the fireworks with Jun, which he enthusiastically accepts, although she doesn’t realize how excited he is. Tomo continues to impress and bewilder Jun with her feminine side while still not letting go of who she is, to the chagrin of the festival staff. But she is not ready to risk losing her bond with Jun with a proper confession, at least not yet.

In the second bite-sized installment of the episode, Tomo shows frustration at the sudden distance Jun is showing between them.
