Uchouten Kazoku episode 09
Yet another lovely episode, well done! I’m starting to get a little nervous though. What’s going on with Satomi-chan? We haven’t been seeing her lately. Why hasn’t Yasaburou tried to contact her yet after he saw her crying like that? I’m very disappointed in him right now.
Either way, we finally got to meet Kaisei-chan for the very first time. She’s been hiding in the shadows until now, see it’s nice to see her face for once. I must say that I can see why Yajirou was so infatuated with her. She looks absolutely adorable, which makes it even harder to believe that she’s related to Souun, Kinkaku and Ginkaku.
She told Yasaburou that his older brother, Yaichirou, has a very, very small chance of being elected as the tanuki top-dog (so to speak). She thinks that Yaichirou doesn’t have the necessary quality to lead and unite, and that there are plenty of others that know that, thus decreasing his chances of winning dramatically.
I’m not really that interesting in whomever gets elected. I’m more interesting in Kaisei-chan, Yasaburou’s relationship with Satomi and the professor. Kaisei-chan looks like a sweet girl with quite a big brain. She must’ve known about the feelings Yaichirou had for her, so I’m kind of hoping that she will go to him and help him to get out of that well of his.
Also, I’m kind of hoping that Yasaburou goes to look for Satomi in order to have a few of his questions answered. He cannot deny that he is not interesting in her (and vice versa). I believe that alone would prove to be quite the interesting scene.
Uchouten Kazoku… Truly a hidden gem that a lot of people have overlooked. Sigh…
