Ore Monogatari!! episode 09
Yes, it was a good episode, but things did not go as well as I had expected and there was at least one thing that really disappointed me. To think that I had most of the characters figured out… I guess I was wrong in the end.
I’ll tackle my disappointment first; Takeo… What the hell is wrong with that guy? From the very beginning he’s been this rare type of character, you know? He’s like an angel trapped inside an ogre’s body. He puts others before himself all the time. He usually has no trouble making the right decision, even though social protocol is not his greatest quality. That is why I was sure that he would reschedule with his girlfriend so that he could be there for his best friend in his time of need. His dad was undergoing major surgery and Takeo spent the first few hours with his girlfriend… I was kind of disappointed by that decision.
Fine. He put most of his date on hold to return to the hospital, but I was certain that he would be there from the start. He’s a good guy that’s always there for his friends. Besides, Rinko is a nice girl and she understood that Takeo had to go. She even decided to support both of them at the hospital. She’s a good girl.
Quite the episode. A little disappointing, sure, but I still believe there was quite a lot of progress. I hope that Takeo and Rinko’s relationship will move to a new level next week. They both deserve that. And yes, I have to say it at least one more time; I’m still waiting for that one episode where the two of them introduce one another to their parents.
