Natsuyuki Rendezvous episode 10

I think it’s safe to say that this was by far the worst episode yet. It is getting harder and harder to watch. The romance is pretty much gone. It’s turned into this diabolical game between Atsushi and Ryousuke. I knew right from the start that Atsushi was going to ruin everyone’s lives, and that he didn’t belong in the ‘real’ world as a ghost, but as a damned one in hell.

I know, that’s some pretty harsh stuff I’m putting out there, but who cares? The ratings alone prove that people are rapidly losing interesting in Natsuyuki Rendezvous. It all went downhill when Atsushi took control of Ryousuke’s body. I have an idea why; the romance started fading when Atsushi joined the big picture. It’s all me-me-me with that guy. I think that’s when the show started focussing more on that whole Atsushi taking over thing than on the romance.

Anyway, Ryousuke knows what’s going on by now. He realized that Atsushi intends to take over his body permanently, leaving him to rot away in that ridiculous dream world. That means that the roles have switched. Ryousuke is now the ghost and Atsushi the evil prince on the black horse.

The only thing that’s keeping me going right now is Rokka. She finally stopped sobbing and feeling sorry for herself. She finally started asking questions. She already asked a question that Atsushi can’t possibly answer. That’s the only thing that keeps me going now; the thought of Rokka finding out how truly pathetic her ex-husband is, and how he will rot in hell for all the things he has done to both her and Ryousuke. Now, I’m an atheïst myself, but the thought of that character burning in hell for all eternity feels pretty nice. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
