Another episode, another chance and yet another mistake on Nanami’s part. That girl will never learn to mind her own business. She refuses to accept the fact that there are things in that world that she shouldn’t meddle with.
But first; we have this demon that used to raise hell alongside Tomoe. He is trying hard to get his own body back and he even got the help of the same demon that sealed away the soul of that old Tengu, even though he was recently defeated by Nanami, a girl that doesn’t even know how to use her powers properly. Still, the guy went back to the netherworld in search of his body and actually found out where they kept it (or rather tried to destroy it). Now all he has to do is ask Tomoe for his help, seeing as he’s probably the only one that can do something about those flames.
That’ll have to wait though. Tomoe is busy trying to learn more and more about Nanami and her past. I certainly can’t blame him; I for one loved those scenes. I know that Nanami’s upbringing was irregular to say the least, but you can clearly tell that she had parents that cared about her, even if her father was a lowly gambler that gambled away all of their money and if her mother was dying from some illness that they haven’t yet told us about (I think). It is simply amazing that she turned out so well even though she had a father like that and had to spend most of her time growing up without her mother by her side. That’s very, very impressive.Read More
I knew it. The ending was so predictable. In fact, half of the story was so predictable that it renders my overall opinion of Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso quite low. Never mind the fact that they killed off the best character on the show. It being so predictable is by far the worst thing about this story.
So yeah, I supposed I hit the mark spot-on when I said that Kaori would probably die during that operation and during Kousei’s performance. Anyone could’ve seen that one coming. But it’s not just that. Its other parts of the story that were simply too predictable. Nevertheless, I think that Kaori’s condition throughout the show, probably a way to crank up the drama, was the biggest problem due to everything around it being so incredibly predictable that the rest of the story, as interesting as it was at times, became less and less amusing.
Still, I must admit that I really liked that letter. That might’ve been the best thing that happened for the past few months to be very honest. It shows that Kaori loved Kousei all along, and that she only used that soccer freak to get close to him. I mean, it was quite obvious that she and Kousei were a much better match.
Soccer boy and Baseball girl are a good match. Not Kousei and soccer girl or soccer boy and Kaori. But that was obvious since episode one. It’s still just a damn shame that they had to kill Kaori, but at least it was a beautiful story in general. Not to mention the incredible artwork. Kudos.Read More
I think it is fine that Nanami chooses to help everyone she encounters. It’s very noble of her I suppose, but at one point she will overreach and find herself in a situation where her talismans and chats won’t help her.
Nanami decided to follow in that Tengu, as everyone already expected once again, into the darkness where a lightning beast of sorts lives. She just doesn’t learn that her being there doesn’t always help. Yes, she can be useful, but mostly she’s just in over her head. I mean, her interference nearly cost that Tengu his life and it still isn’t known if he’ll ever fly again even though he took some of those divine peach pills. Not to mention the fact that both of them would’ve been dead if Tomoe didn’t come to her aid at the right moment as usual. I really like Nanami, but I am getting tired of her constant meddling.Read More
I knew it. They are going to save Kaori’s death for the very last episode. This episode has been so uninteresting because all you could really think about what Kaori’s condition. Sure, Kousei has just started playing again, but that’s not what’s on my mind.
I think it’s great that Kousei isn’t giving up. He is going to continue playing the piano and any and all insecurities have been overcome thanks to Kaori. I think it’s wonderful, definitely, but I could not help but think about the next episode and how Kaori will die. In fact, I am almost completely certain that she’s going to die during Kousei’s performance next week. These things are so cliché and predictable that I’m probably going to be bored to death by it. They always mix good things with bad things in order to pump up the drama a bit. Koari is going to die and at this point I can only hope that she’s going to go peacefully without any pain during surgery.Read More
And once again Nanami sticks her nose where it just doesn’t belong. She is so nosey that one of these days she’ll get into so much trouble that even Tomoe won’t be able to save her. At this pace it’s only a matter of time.
So Nanami found the Tengu chief and discovered that his soul had been sucked out of his body, meaning that those divine pills of her wouldn’t do a darn thing. All they could do what find out where that soul of his was being kept and try to restore it somehow. I’m not even going to say how surprised I was when I saw Nanami defeat that evil creature with only one chant. I never would’ve imagined that she had that in her. I thought that Tomoe would escape that prison and rush to save Nanami at the very last second as usual. Nice little surprise…
I guess I’m a little disappointed that Tomoe got captured so easily. From that idol Tengu I expected nothing less. I have always seem Tomoe as this strong, badass character that would do anything to prevent Nanami from getting hurt. This episode changed my image of him a little. It was very disappointing to see him lose so easily. I mean, he didn’t even really try to do anything to stop himself from getting captured by that Tengu. He just stood there with a dumb look on his face as it happened.Read More
