Uchouten Kazoku episode 05
God I love this show. I, for some reason or other, get pissed off on a personal level every time I see the user ratings on anime community sites. Sure, they’re slowly going up with each passing episode, but I still can’t help but get a little disappointed.
I just love the atmosphere in Uchouten Kazoku. It feels as though something’s about to happen every time. And I thought that it was going to be an easy-going episode with Yasaburou on the run, hoping to say out of Satomi’s hotpot madness. He must’ve known that he couldn’t hide from someone like her, how foolish.
I’m actually also a bit curious about that girl from the Ebisugawa family. She claims to hate pretty much everything but Yasaburou’s mom, but she’s always around. I cannot help but to think of her as an interesting character with a lot of promise. She could become quite the troublemaker with a push in the right direction.
Anyway, Satomi found Yasaburou. No surprise there, right? Satomi is a very observant and clever girl that you can’t fool by transforming into a Russian doll. I’m amazed that Yasaburou avoided his punishment by agreeing to entertain her fellow club members, the same people that supposedly killed and ate Yasaburou’s father. No doubt that it wasn’t easy for him to be there, let alone act friendly. But hey, it’s not like he had a choice in the matter. It was either that or be eaten by Satomi, although I don’t think she ever will. Satomi likes Yasaburou way too much to eat him, I think. Not sure if she likes him on a partner-for-life-level though.
