Yume’s dark secret was revealed in episode 3 of My stepmom’s daughter is my ex. Since the first episode of the series, Yume has always been the reason the stepbrothers have encountered unique situations and this time her imagination got ahead of her.
The episode started off with just a random scene in the past from when Yume was still dating Mizuto. It was revealed that she kept everything Mizuto gave her in a small box and revered them as her most prized possessions. The scene shifted to the present and there, Yume is holding Mizuto’s underwear and sniffing it. After realizing what she had just done, she started imagining Mizuto punishing her and doing naughty stuff.
A few hours passed and Yume, while holding Mizuto’s shorts, saw him holding his underwear. I have to say, this situation felt a bit forced on the show because it makes no sense why the two are suddenly holding each other’s underwear. Still, after finding out what happened, it causes Yume to imagine what Mizuto did to his underwear. As you can see, compared to her brother, she’s the one who’s horny.
After school, Yume saw Mizuto eating outside with a girl she couldn’t recognize. Of course, she immediately jumped to the conclusion that they were dating. What’s worse is that she saw a girl’s shoes outside Mizuto’s room, which made her imagine that the girl and Mizuto are currently having an intimate situation inside. Although it was revealed at the end of the episode that the girl is Minami Akatsuki, Yume is still distraught.
Overall, the episode had little to do with their development. It was just full of weird situations, which can’t be understood. Yume being lewd in her imagination proved that she’s still in love with Mizuto, but there’s no need to spin the whole episode around that. Still, I’d say that’s one of its cute sides, and if you want to see more, stay tuned to the anime. Episode 4 will air on July 27, 2022 and you can watch it on Crunchyroll.
