The Knight in the Area episode 29
Okay, I got mixed feelings about this episode. I saw some good and some bad things. I just can’t seem to get excited about this anime anymore. It’s become so boring. Kakeru will remain that same goody-goody guy, so how can things get exciting when the protagonist has that kind of personality? It makes me want to cry at some points.
I liked it when their coaches decided to revise their training schedules. They needed to make it harder and longer. I don’t know about the rest, but Ryuuichi was feeling it the most. Remember, he is fat again, so there is a lot of pressure on his lungs due to all that excessive fat. That’s all fine and all, but I don’t think this will do much good for everyone. Everyone has the exact same schedule right now. I think that individual schedules will be far more effective, as you could help the players improve by polishing certain skills and working on certain weaknesses. It’s not like they don’t have the time for it.
The one thing I didn’t like was when Mai-chan decided to take yet another aggressive approach in making Kakeru hers. She dragged him into the locker room, put on a little show and hoped that it was sufficient to seduce him. Hell, she even confessed to him, although she claimed that it was a “joke” afterwards. I seriously don’t know what to think of this anymore.
This episode was very confusing, let’s just keep it at that. Kakeru will always be that goody-goody guy that’s afraid of getting too close to girls and whatnot. I just feel as though all the drama has disappeared ever since the accident. Only predictable action and average comedy remains. I’m pretty sure that more people feel that way, seeing as the ratings have been slowly declining lately.
