Mika is about to meet Yoshimatsu Shinji in a secluded bar in Episode 7 to discuss the future of Chisato.

Chisato decided to follow them after catching a glimpse of Mika's text message, thanks to Takina, Mizuki, and Kurumi's assistance.

Chisato and Takina discuss the person Mika would like to meet at a bar. They were all convinced Mika was going on a date. Unbeknownst to everyone, Chisato had foreseen Mika's meeting with someone significant in her past.

Takina and Kurumi brought up the possibility of Mika going on a date with Kusunoki, which Mizuki and Chisato completely rejected. Chisato and Mizuki shivered at the prospect of Mika and Kusunoki being lovers. Not once, but twice!

Chisato and Mizuki also informed Takina and Kurumi that Mika's meeting with Kusunoki would not be a date. This is due to the fact that Kusunoki is a woman, which means Mika is not the type to date women.

Whether they are dating or not, Mika and Yoshimatsu have a more intimate relationship that is greater than that of being friends.

Based on Yoshimatsu's actions toward Mika, it appears that the two have had a romantic relationship in the past. From Yoshimatsu's Kabedon to his lip whisper to Mika, it appears that the two of them are more than just friends.

Not to mention that the two have made promises over the last ten years.

Mika, on the other hand, is conflicted about Yoshimatsu's decision on Chisato. While Mika wishes to free Chisato from the clutches of the Alan Institute, Yoshimatsu refuses to release her.

Regardless, Mika remains a good father figure for Chisato. Every time he visits the Lyco Reco cafe, he maintains a civil relationship with Yoshimatsu.

What are your opinions? Is the Mika x Yoshimatsu ship going to sail in Lycoris Recoil soon, or will it drown forever?
