Kōki has got to be the naughtiest kid I ever saw. Can you imagine a kid telling you to fetch a ruler just so he can measure the length of his poo? LOL! I find it amusing that he misunderstood the “pooping” and “operating” thing. “Unkou” and “Unko” hmm….interesting.
I really enjoyed this episode, with Kōki’s mischief and all. I like how he listens to Rin and shocked everyone else. That scene was certainly priceless. I’m smiling right now as I think of that. I also like how he’s attached to Daikichi. He seems to adore Daikichi very much and begins to fit into the family as if he’s one of them. Seeing Kōki, Kōki’s mother (whose name is Nitani. It finally sunk in), Rin and Daikichi preparing dinner and then dine together was so much fun. I suppose me wanting those four to be a family is a contributing factor as to why I love this episode a lot.
The part that shows Rin and Kōki at their school was absolutely adorable too. I never thought watching kids blindly following instructions and taking in all things literally can be so cute. Also, I expected Kōki to ignore or talk back to the lady teacher for being so controlling and naggy; however, he obediently did as told. It was surprising but it only goes to show that Kōki’s just a normal mischievous boy. Harmless. I find myself rather enjoy him being the centre of this week’s episode. Such a playful character.
Hmm..I think Usagi Drop has been actively trying to change my mind about the characters for these past weeks. First it was Reina. Then, Masako. Now, Kōki. I shouldn’t say “change my mind”, but instead I should say the series is taking time to explore each character, allowing us to understand them a little better. However, time’s almost up. I really doubt that the anime will adapt to the extent of the entire manga but that’s alright. It only means there’s a possible second season. Who’s with me here – a second season?
Moving away from Kōki and all the character development in supporting casts, Daikichi once again found himself face yet another aspect of being a parent. Insurance. The story really did well in bringing all the elements of real life parenting. My colleagues or even my friends with kids are busy buying education and life insurances for their kids. So when that scene appeared, I can only nod in understanding and agreement cuz it’s just so real, so true. I shouldn’t be surprise if Rin’s education and life insurances are well covered when Daikcihi’s in-charge. I most certainly find it interesting that Daikichi no longer attempt to correct others when they refer him as Rin’s father.
So anyway. This is a lovely episode. I really enjoyed every minute of it. How about you?
P.S I like this scene. Haha.
P.P.S Kōki rocks in this outfit!!!
