Natsuyuki Rendezvous episode 03
What the hell? I’m slightly confused by one or two things. I watched this episode this morning and it’s been stuck in my mind all day. It’s a miracle that I managed to work today without any problems. Let’s just say that I’m not really happy with that I saw.
We all remember Ryuusuke and Atsushi, right? They are the two idiots, one human and one ghost, that are both in love with Rokka. They both wish her the best and want to do anything for her. In Atsushi’s case that’s impossible, as she can’t see or touch him. In Ryuusuke’s case it’s impossible because Atsushi keeps interfering. The guy just doesn’t want to let go.
Now, that’s all fine. I’ve accepted the fact that there’s a ghost involved in such a beautiful story. No problem. However, I would like to come back to that no physical contact thing. Atsushi cannot touch anything, he just goes through things, yet he’s capable of (telepathically?) moving objects and such? I’m sorry, but I just can’t seem to accept that. It’s like the story is fighting itself.
Meanwhile Ryuusuke tried everything in his power to get to know more about Rokka via her sister-in-law. He learned a lot about her and her marriage to her brother, Atsushi. It all sounded great, but he has become a stubborn fool that goes against his own wishes. He wants Rokka to be happy at all costs, yet he’s stopping the one person that’s actually capable of making her happy by getting in the way all the time. I just hope that Ryuusuke won’t fall for his tricks, thereby ‘borrowing’ his body to Atsushi. Do that and you’ll never see it again, probably? Atsushi does strike me as that sort of person.
I’m seriously looking forward to next week’s episode. Ryuusuke has made an aggressive move, which is a first for him, by asking Rokka out for a day at an amusement park. He decided to do that after hearing what her sister-in-law had to say. Smart move! There’s no way that Rokka will decline. It’s quite obvious that she likes him. The only thing that troubles me is Atsushi’s ability to ‘move’ things. It’ll be very dangerous if that happens when they’re on the ferris wheel or something, as that guy gets jealous very easily.
