Uchouten Kazoku episode 11

It’s nice to see that Uchouten Kazoku is still slowly moving up to a solid eight on almost all anime communities. I don’t really care much for user ratings, mainly because I will give any show a try and form my own opinion afterwards, but I think people judged this masterpiece way too quickly.

[HorribleSubs] Uchouten Kazoku - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.49_[2013.09.17_13.41.28]If I had to divide this show into parts (based on the seven sins), I would have to label the first few episodes as Sloth, Pride comes after that, followed up by Envy and now we have arrived at Greed. I have always been a huge fan of stories based on the Seven Deadly Sins, but to think that Uchouten Kazoku would remind me a bit of that…

We all know that old man Souun is behind all of this for the most childish of reasons. He has been standing in his brother’s shadow for years, watching him as he does whatever he wants to do as the Tanuki top-dog, plotting and hoping to take his place one day. He even handed over his brother as a meal to humans, much like he’s doing right now with his Nephew, Yaichirou.

He has been standing in the spotlight for a long time now and I, the viewer, have come to like that character a bit too much, thinking that he’ll pull off another stunt in order to save the day somehow. Never would I have guessed that we’d have to rely on Yashirou, the youngest one of the Shimogamo family, to provide us with a happy ending.

Lastly, and I know I have been ranting on about this for weeks now, I would like to focus just a tiny bit more on Satomi. She’s a mystery. Is she with Souun? Isn’t she? I don’t know. It’s like she’s on a side of her own, doing whatever she thinks is best. None of it explains why she frequently visits Yajirou’s well to cry her heart out. This just keeps getting better and better…
