Tamako Market episode 07

This episode was very, very strange. Rather, I can’t seem to get used to the fact that Dera is scared of a little girl and obeys her every command. It’s not the imagine I have of that character, you know? I rather saw him as the one giving orders. Maybe I’m just nuts.

She comes from an island far away to check up on Dera and his mission to find an appropriate bride for the prince. My first problem with that would have to be the fact that she’s this tsundere-like character that immediately started to order Dera around, which was something I would never expect to see.

Also, what is up with the Kitashirakawa family? Tamako’s father just took Choi in without thinking about the consequences. She is living there rent-free and she doesn’t seem to pay for the food they give her. There’s a limit to how nice people can be. I just feel as though the level of realism is rapidly dropping, not that the show was super realistic to begin with though.

Choi’s presence adds a lot more colour to the story. The only thing I dislike about that character is her ability to predict the future by making Dera fly for a little bit. I honestly don’t get that, but maybe that’s just me.

I’ll be looking forward to seeing what will happen. I’m kind of hoping that Choi will continue to harass Dera into losing weight, because he was a lot funnier when he was still in shape. The image of that bird with his legs crossed will probably never leave my mind ever again, it was simply that funny.
