Hmm..Usagi Drop is already on its sixth episode. We’re halfway there, my friends. So far, everything’s going very well. Nicely executed, leaving me eagerly waiting for the next episode.
The idea of planting a tree to commemorate the birth or an event is really fascinating to me. I’ve never heard of this before as usually events over here commemorate with a sound of a gong. So when I look at the trees of each individual of different generations in Usagi Drop, I’m blown away. Not only do the trees present something significant in each person’s life, they are also their eternal companions and a reminder of their earthly presence.
Albeit slow paced this week, the cute and dynamic interaction between Rin and Daikichi made up for it. It never fails to make me smile whenever Rin starts acting more of a guardian and Daikichi more of a child. She’s such a smart girl and I have no worries about Kōki’s possible influence on her. Kōki’s such a brat.
That’s not to say Daikichi is the one being looked after. We all know that he’s doing a great job being a parental figure even if it has only been six months. Apart from knowing how to respect a young girl’s opinion as seen in previous episode, the other thing I like about Daikichi is how he’s always sensitive to other’s feelings. He felt bad for accidentally reminding Rin of some sad memories. How sweet. I wonder now that Rin’s walking to school on her own, will Daikichi consider to focus on his career? He doesn’t have to rush back and forth anymore. And if he does consider that, what will happen between him and Rin?
Oh before I end this week’s very short afterthoughts on Usagi Drop, I thought it’ll be interesting to let you know that the seiyū is really a kid! That surprised me. Matsuura Ayu is a ten year old girl. I thought it’s one of those talented adult seiyū who specializes in young characters. I’m impressed.
So then I shall stop writing here since there’s really nothing much going on this week except well, the trees. =)
