Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai! episode 11
Okay, it’s decided! Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai is most definitely my favourite of this winter’s anime. Hell, it has also reached my top 5 of all-time favourites, and I haven’t even seen the final episode yet. That goes to show just how good this anime really is, I most certainly recommend it to practically everyone. Haven’t seen it yet? Go see it!
The episode starts out with Sora-chan’s interesting dream. I’m sure that the all fans know that she has a little crush on Yuuto, her uncle. It was cute how innocent and childish her dreams were. But that’s not the issue here. The issue is that the girls are having a hard time. They hardly have any free time, they are having difficulties at school and it’s now also starting to affect their health. The worst of it all is; Yuuto doesn’t seem to realize it. The girls are constantly putting up an act so that he doesn’t have to keep worrying about them. They should know by now that they could tell him basically everything.
Raika-chan keeps doing her best for them, but there’s only so much that she can do for them. It all comes down to Yuuta. He has to work several part-time jobs, attend college and look after three young girls, one of which is just a toddler. This is definitely the Japanese version of mission impossible, but without the fake guns, horrible actresses and pimped-up cars.
It makes you look different at single parents, doesn’t it? However, Yuuta can only do so much. Being a hard worker is very impressive, I suppose, but working yourself to death is not the answer, especially when you are responsible for three little girls. The girls would be screwed if he were to get hospitalized because he keeps wearing down his body.
But then it finally happened. Yuuta’s aunt, who decided to stop by, came by at the right time. Miu-chan has been lightheaded during the last few days and Hina-chan has finally succumbed to the recent changes in her life, or was it that she undressed too early for bath? Anyway, Miu-chan can no longer keep up and Hina-chan will now have to deal with her fever. This is a huge eye-opener for Yuuta.
Normally I would say that he doesn’t have much of a choice, but he does now. One of his relatives has changed his mind and has agreed to take in all three of them. Very noble, but that means that the girls will have to start all over again. Just how many more times do they have to move? I completely understand, but moving might not be the best option, especially for Hina, seeing as Yuuta is technically her last relative that’s related to her by blood.
