Uchouten Kazoku episode 12
Great episode! It’s nice to see that at least one of my theories was somewhat accurate. You know, it almost feels as though we’ve just met a whole new character. But yeah, I’m overall very satisfied by how this played out.
I already had a theory about Yashirou asking for Yajirou’s help. I never would’ve imagined that a simple bottle of scotch would fix that problem (temporarily). It was quite amusing to see Yaijirou haul so much ass in his tram mode, which led me to believe that he might be the strongest one of the Shimogamo brothers.
Yajirou has always caught my attention. I even labelled the guy as their father’s favourite. They always went out drinking, shared secrets and did all sorts of crazy stuff together. One cannot help but think that the old man saw him as his favourite, maybe even as his successor. It’s too bad that his death had such a negative impact on his son’s life.
Anyway, Souun is seeing his plan shatter to the ground. His sons have been captured and his daughter is probably going to testify against him. The Shimogamo family can say whatever they want to the rest of those Tanuki, but it’s their word against his. It’s a difficult situation for everyone, and all they’ve got going for themselves is a messed up story about how Souun almost killed Yaichirou and successfully killed his brother and their father, Souichirou. The professor can’t do anything to help them, Satomi probably won’t do anything to help them, and they themselves probably won’t break the ice. Kaisei-chan has the ability to confirm their story and end the madness once and for all.
