I was waiting for this episode all week long! I think that a lot of good things could come from the worst kinds of situations, which is why I have high hopes for their lifestyle. Sure, things started out a little badly, but Yuuta soon rectified things. He may not have any parental experience, but he was raised by his sister, a strong and warm-hearted woman, so I have high hopes in him succeeding as a parent.
The girls just got introduced to a whole new life; a new place, a new guardian, a whole new environment and a lot of new responsibilities. It will take them a little while to get used to all these sudden changes, you can’t expect them to change just like that. Sure, the younger a person is, the more adaptable that person is, but that doesn’t change the fact that their whole lives have been turned upside-down.
So the girls did some bad things, who cares? They’re young, how should they know what they should and shouldn’t do in a situation like that? They tried to do laundry, then they tried to cook everyone dinner, and neither one has ever done any of these things. No wonder it turned out badly, especially since there was adult present to supervise them. However, they had Yuuta’s best interest at heart when doing all of those things. Yuuta is not a stupid young man, he knew that they were only trying to help, which is why he didn’t really get mad, in fact; he ended up rewarding them for their trouble.
You know, I keep seeing that the girls’ lives have been turned upside-down, but the biggest burden lies with Yuuta. He has to feed them, make sure they stay healthy, make sure they all get a proper education and that’s just scratching the surface. God knows how he’s going to get that done financially, seeing as he’s just a student. He doesn’t even have time to visit is club anymore; god knows how he’ll find enough time to work in order to bring in some money.
Man, I can’t wait for next week’s episode. I was tempted to start reading the manga, but I respect Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai way too much to ruin it at this point. I’ll watch the anime adaption first before reading the manga. At this point I just want to see Yuuta and the girls improving, they have all been through some rough situations. But, ultimately I would like to see Yuuta end up in a relationship with Raika, because I just think that she would really fit in there. She seems like the understanding type, which would make her the perfect girlfriend / mother figure.Read More
Alright, so I just finished watching the episode, which was no easy task. It wasn’t that bad, I mean… I was expecting to see a lot of drama, a lot of painful emotions, but it turned out to be pretty decent. Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai just got a lot more interesting to watch.
So the family just got over a big shock, a shock that changed their lives forever. Especially for Yuuta, as the poor kid went from a temporary babysitter to a full-time guardian. He took the girls home with them, apparently without the say-so from other family members. Nuts, if you did that here then the police and child protection services would be all over you in no-time. To hell with you if you get robbed, but you better not take any kids, as that appears to be the local mentality here.
It surprised me a little bit by how the girls adapted so quickly. They were cheerful, but that was probably only to put up appearances. It’s poor little Hina that didn’t fully understand the situation, as she was constantly asking about her parents. Who could blame her? She’s just a little child, death should be the least of her problems right about now.
Putting all that aside; Yuuta still has to option to return the girls. Sure, he can offer them a life together, but would that be a good life, a fair life? The guy’s a student for Christ sake, what could he possibly offer them? It would be nothing less than a miracle if a student could take care of himself as well as three little girls. That’s just the finances I’m talking about, but a lot of time goes in to raising children, the kind of time a college student might not have.
Still, we all know that Yuuta won’t give up the girls; we get that just by reading the show’s plot summary. I am rather curious about how he’s going to get this all done, especially in an apartment that barely has room for them all to sleep in. One thing is for sure; Yuuta will have to give up a lot of things in order to get and maintain a lifestyle in which he can raise these girls.
I can’t wait for the next episode. I think we’re going to see some rough stuff next week, especially when he will have to get them into some good schools. I hope Yuuta’s sister left him a lot of money, because he’s going to need it, especially when it comes to paying for their education.
Oh, one more thing… does anyone know why the drama-level is so high in this show? Well, that’s because this story is based on a true story. In fact; a lot of people live their lives in similar circumstances, but most people don’t stop to think about those possibilities. There are a lot of people, no matter whom; children, adults, you name it, which go through many of these difficult situations every day while we sit aimlessly behind our screens. That’s why I give this show two dumbs up, because it’s a total eye-opener.Read More
Oh hell yeah! This is seriously my kind of show! It’s filled to the brim with comedy, drama and slices of life. It kind of remembers me of Usagi Drop, who also started out with a bad and bumpy story. But still, I had no idea that this would’ve happened! Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai! starts to look better and better.
The episode started out pretty peaceful, or as peaceful as it gets anyway. Yuuta fell asleep the night before and so Miu, while the poor kid was sleeping, decided to give him an extreme makeover. He woke up to the screams of their father, his sister’s current man. He thought that Yuuta was an intruder and attacked him. Good thing for Yuuta that the man’s a weakling.
Now the whole family was complete; time for them to reveal the true reason behind Yuuta’s invitation! It seems that mister and misses Takanashi planned an exotic trip for themselves, leaving Yuuta behind to take care of the girls. Yuuta didn’t really fight it much, he eventually agreed to take care of them, after all; they’re family.
Then it happened! The plane that those two lovebirds took ended up crashing. With the bodies now missing it seems that all hope is lost. The rest of the family came from afar for the ceremony and to decide what would happen with the girls. Each family member was prepared to take responsibility for one of the girls, resulting in them being separated.
But, Yuuta refused to let them be separated. He was raised by his sister, the same sister that stood her own ground in order to raise Yuuta. He would be damned if he saw those girls separated, so he invited them all to come live with him. Sure, he’s just your everyday poor student, but he was willing to sacrifice a lot if it would mean that those three girls wound remain together. Yuuta has no experience or knowledge when it comes to raising kids, but neither did his sister at the time. Still, he was willing to give it his all.
It certainly was a very touching episode. The story isn’t anything that special; you know… plane crash, people going missing, etc… But! The comedy, drama and artwork more than make up for that. I’m definitely sticking with this show!Read More
