Barakamon episode 08
Seishuu’s friends have gone back to Tokyo after seeing how he was doing. This made me believe that Seishuu would start to focus a bit more on his work. Boy, it is quite painful to see how incredibly naïve I was. There’s no way that Seishuu will leave those kids alone or vice versa.
So it’s Naru’s birthday and the whole group is practically going nuts about getting her gifts and preparing a surprise party. Seishuu did not escape this insanity and joined a group of boys to hunt down insects to give Naru as a gift. You know, I’ve never once met a little girls that actually liked insects. To think that those exist…
I must say that it was quite painful to see Seishuu play along with those kids. He kept hurting himself, he couldn’t even catch a single bug and the one that he did catch ended up getting killed. You’d think that this would only be a scene of a couple of minutes, but no… This was pretty much half of this week’s episode.
I don’t care though. I learned a lot more about Naru and her charm just got bigger. She is still the most adorable character on the show and she just keeps getting cuter. I actually got a little choked up when she said that she got quite bored and sad whenever she has to watch over her grandmother’s grave during some kind of special day. It just got to me when she said that this year was so much better and enjoyable since she had Seishuu to keep her company. Her grandfather, supposedly her last blood related relative, won’t be with them for much longer if you consider his age, so I’m guessing that Seishuu will play an even bigger role in her future (not that something like that would actually happen on Barakamon, of course).
