Barakamon episode 05
You know, ever since I saw that episode with a manly Naru, which was no easy task, I have been kind of on edge every time I start up a new Barakamon episode. I think I’m traumatized. I just took a sip of strawberry soda when I started watching that episode. A gulp of soda went down badly and I couldn’t stop coughing.
Anyway, I’m actually starting to doubt if that village is right for Seishuu. I understand that he needs to lighten up and relax for once, but it seems as though he hasn’t been working much lately. He’s just following those kids around every day. I don’t think that’s plan. I suppose it could be because they don’t show him working a lot as they did when the show first started.
It was also quite interesting to see how those girls showed interest in Seishuu’s private life. They all wanted to know if he had a girlfriend and what she looked like. Can you honestly see that guy with a girl on his arms? Not me. He’s too uptight, aggressive and kind of antisocial. He needs a loving and patient girlfriend that will mould him into a man (or something that comes close to one).
I wonder why Seishuu takes everything so personal. He sees those kids play and jump off of huge cliffs and the guy just simply freaks out. Those guys have been doing these strange things ever since they were born, so why panic? I’ll just use this opportunity to think that they all have become closer somehow. Everyone seems to be pretty comfortable around one another.
I hope next week’s episode will shed some light on Seishuu’s future. His manager (or something like that) arrived on the island with some guy (probably a creepy fan). This will probably become a little chaotic when those two show up and meet a few of the villagers. It sure sounds quite entertaining when you think about it.
