Barakamon episode 09
Yep. We probably return to the world of calligraphy at the final episode. Until then it’s all fun and games I suppose. I knew it was going to be this way so I am not at all upset. I’m fine with all of it as long as I can keep watching Naru-chan.
I fail to understand the first half though. I can’t at all remember my early days. My earliest memory must’ve been of me at age twelve or something. Was I just like that? I am aware that kids have the attention span of hummingbirds, but this was something else. They treat Naru like some toy and then start mouthing off Seishuu for being an idiot and whatnot, only to switch personalities and mood when one of their little friends show up. I am all but certain that I was not like that whatsoever. It just reminds me that children are stupid little creatures that siphon money from your bank account on a daily basis
I must admit that that bathing scene was pretty funny. I actually used to bathe like that, you know? My mother would boil a lot of water and pour it into a tub. I would wait until the water temperature had cooled down a bit and then jump in to clean myself. It just reminds me of how grateful I am for today’s technology. Most children nowadays don’t have to go through all that.
And I am not going to say it. I do not expect anything from next week’s episode. So what if Seishuu suddenly got inspired to do some work? He suddenly works for like half a minute and suddenly next week’s episode gets all serious? Nah. It’ll probably be the same story. Just let Naru tease him again or something. That’ll be fine.
