This episode revolved around Tohru. More accurately, the misconception that he’s left Kissuisō Inn for its arch rival, Fukuya Inn. The culprit behind all the misunderstandings is none other than the novelist wannabe – Jirō. Tohru gained recommendable reputation this week. It seems like he is not only a Mr. Nice Guy but a well-respected chef too. I can’t help but wonder why he’s asked to help out Fukuya Inn in the first place. Whose idea was that?
Warnings – more spoilers ahead.
So it turns out that the love triangle isn’t really a love triangle I imagined it to be like. Tohru was just being kind to let Yuina ride on his bike at her request. It doesn’t seem like there’s anything special going on between both of them. At least, for now. I understand, from this episode, that Tohru is certainly is really good guy beneath his tough exterior so what sort of relationship will develop between Yuina and him or Minko and him in the future is something we could only guess at the moment.
We also get a glimpse of Minko’s past. Looks like the girl always wanted to become a chef, which is why she’s working as a kitchen helper at the inn. I like her determination. She looked like she really wanted to become a chef when she asked for a job at the inn. Pretty damn confident too. Will she finally become a chef at the end of this series and cook up storm for the staff?
As suspected by most anibloggers whose blogs I frequent, Ohana will be able to reach Minko by helping her in resolving her heart matters with Tohru. I was the only skeptical one. Although it isn’t quite as imagined, but by the end of this episode, Minko has already break down the wall between herself and Ohana. Of course, I still expect her to maintain her cold demeanor, just that she would be a little friendlier towards Ohana.
Is it me or is grandma actually a kind and soft woman? She looks like an evil queen when Ohana first arrived at the inn. However, these past weeks we’ve seen the softer side of her. She even cracked a joke here! That’s one thing I never expect to hear from her. I’m curious what sort of rivalry she’s having with the other grandma. Wanna bet that they’re actually really good friends? The other grandma (referring to Yuina’s) is oddly similar to grandma (referring to Ohana’s grandma). Yeah, I know. It’s confusing if I keeping referring to the two grandmas as grandma. Their names have yet to register in my brain.
Ohana finally returned Ko’s text but the latter has other plans. Will he be visiting Ohana soon? That’s so sweet. He must be missing Ohana dearly. I can’t wait to see them reunite again.
My favorite scene this week is this.
Love the lights and whatnot. I was going to post a night view of Kissuisō Inn but I did that a few times already.
It’s an enjoyable episode overall. Lots of things happening here and there. Ohana is definitely living up to my expectations (so is Minko). Ohana’s a fighter, and she’s learning new experience each day at the inn. It’s good to see her doing all that she did for Minko, and it’s even better to see Minko appreciating it.
P.S What nickname would you give Ohana?
