Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai! episode 07
It’s here! It’s here at last! I was waiting for this episode all day. I just had to know what was going to happen next. Know how you can tell if a show is good or not? It’s good if you find yourself wanting more, it’s good if you can’t predict what’s going to happen, it’s good if you are willing to watch it multiple times and it’s good if the show’s called Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai!
The episode started out just like any other; with the family continuing their everyday lives while people treat them to all sorts of goodies. Hell, I would’ve given them a dozen popsicles (actual popsicles, you perverts) just by looking at them, even though I’m absolutely not good with kids. However, Yuuta got baited into inviting the whole club for dinner, which means that the club’s king of perversion is coming as well. I’m sure he’s a good guy, but I never would’ve let him in, absolutely never. He definitely would’ve done something weird if the rest weren’t there. Luckily the evening ended pretty good, nothing bad happened to any of the girls.
Yuuta risked a lot by inviting them all for dinner. God knows what that guy could’ve done. But his decision has paid off! You see, Yuuta managed to score a few cooking lessons from Raika. That would mean that she and she alone would have to come to his apartment in order to teach him. Slick move, bro! It’s sort of stupid that he left, but he didn’t really have a choice, I guess. He could’ve made so much progress with Raika, a girl who would be perfect for him. In the end she ended up teaching Miu-chan, who made a little bit of a mess, causing them all to take a bath together. He could’ve been there, he could’ve seen something good, but no… he had to go out to buy them a gift and whatnot.
The episode itself was very good, but the conclusion was not. Yuuta was finally taking control of life, even when his relative came by to ‘inspect’ their current living environment. She was concerned with the fact that things will only get harder as their summer break is nearing its end. Valid point indeed, but something a lot more urgent came up. It seems that the landlord has been keeping an eye on him and the girls, thinking that they were only staying for a short period of time. However, she came by during the night to give Yuuta an eviction notice. School is now the last thing on his mind, as he will have to find a new place for them to live, otherwise they’re going to be homeless within a month.
See? Now this is a good show. You cannot predict these things, and yet you keep coming back for more and more. I personally thought that it was Miu’s mother that was watching them, but that’s only because I’ve always wondered about that. Still, what a twist this was! I’m not sure how much rent he paid, but it’s about to go up. Finding a place for four people isn’t going to be easy and cheap, that much I know. He might just have to ask around for a few favours, because I can only expect him to be on a very tight budget, and that would mean that the amount of money he can spend on rent is very limited. But we’ll see what happens next week.
