Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 11
I am going to write about Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso since it was such a good episode and since Parasyte took that expected one week break after all. I’ll admit that there wasn’t a lot of action in this one, but I must say that this was one of the better episodes.
What worries me most is Kaori’s health. She’s clearly hiding something and it is only a matter of time before that comes out. I foresee an illness that will end up bestowing upon her an early, undeserved death. I just feel it. Of course, every fibre of my being hopes that I am wrong about this. She is by far the greatest character on the show.
What also surprised me was Kousei’s attitude towards the whole thing. He had just been disqualified for stopping in the middle of his performance and he even got talked down by that grumpy old man, yet he stood proud with a smile on his face. It was almost as though he walked out of there as the winner. I guess his feelings reached the girl that conquered his heart.
It all doesn’t matter though. Kousei is back. He lost his way and is now trying to find his own piano playing style. He is coming back. He has the support of his friends and the support of Hiroko-chan, a young mother (I think?) that claims to be his guardian and teacher. She, Hiroko, seems to think very fondly of Kousei. I think she could be the one to help him get back up on his feet and into the music world where he obviously belongs. She just needs to keep poking into his life a bit more in order to give him that extra push for him to pursue his dreams, because I don’t think Kousei would improve a lot without a little bit of support from friends.
