The Knight in the Area episode 03

The Knight in the Area just got a lot harder to watch. The story itself started out bumpy due to sibling rivalry, but now this… its total overkill. Just when both brothers had made up, when both of them decided on what they wanted… absolutely not cool!

I held my fingers crossed, hoping it wasn’t them that got hit by that car, but it was. The situation was tense in the waiting room as their parents prayed to god that both their boys came out alive. I somehow knew what was going to happen as soon as I saw that doctor’s expression. It’s a shame too, because I am not too good with these types of stories, they always seem to get to me, you know?

This episode was no exception. One of the brothers, Suguru, did not make it out alive, but neither would Kakeru if they didn’t transplant his older brother’s heart in to his body. Confused? Well, Kakeru, the younger brother, got his heart pierced and was given the heart of Suguru, who was clinically brain dead, in order to live on. It’s all very tragic, but that was the logical choice, as Suguru had already passed away.

Once again we get surprised with yet another tragic story. Never in a million years would I have guessed that something like this would happen. Still, Kakeru has obtained a new responsibility now; he will have to live for two! He has been given a second chance, a chance that not many people get. I don’t know whether it’s because of Suguru’s heart, or if it’s because he gave up on holding back, but he showed some real kicking skills during the last minute of this episode.

It was a tragic episode, but nevertheless beautiful. Life isn’t just about fun and games, ‘real’ things happen from time to time, things that everyone will have to face someday. I’m not talking about anything specific, but still… it’s an inevitable part of life. This is the type of story that makes you think about your own mortality, the type of story that makes you want to go out and have fun.
