Usagi Drop episode 09

Rin-chwaaaan! Hehe, that’s right. Yet another episode of Usagi Drop. I really, really like this anime. In fact; I like it so much, that I started reading and following the manga. The story is just so basic and completely based on real life and how tough life can be sometimes. I really like the simplicity of it, because with the way things are going now, this anime could grow to become a very successful and lengthy anime. Only twelve episodes have been planned for this anime, but from the looks of the show’s success, there might be a second season in the future.

This episode is a particular troublesome one, you see.. Daikichi and Rin are about to face a tsunami. Daikichi claims that tsunami’s occur every year in that part of Japan, so there shouldn’t be any real danger, but Rin has her doubts. Anyway, Rin simply goes to school with her classmate Kouki, as usual, while Daikichi goes to work. No change in their routine, even though there’s a tsunami coming.

It’s a pretty normal day at school, Rin and Kouki are learning how to write, draw and that sort of thing, you know the drill. But the hyperactive Kouki is getting himself into trouble again by being his usual self. At one point, after having messed around too much, Rin decided to put a stop to it and confront Kouki about his behavior. Kouki immediately stopped and started to behave himself. Everyone was shocked and very impressed with Rin.

Meanwhile at Daikichi’s place work they’re stacking sandbags, in preparation for the tsunami. During their break they discuss all sorts of things, things like each other’s children, living expenses, life insurance and whatnot. This made Daikichi think about his own situation, wondering how much life insurance would cost him.

The day is almost over and Daikichi came to pick up Rin, thinking he was the last one again. It turns out that Kouki’s mother hasn’t come yet to pick him up either, so he and Rin decided to take Kouki home with them. After having secured the house against the storm, which was no easy task, Kouki’s mother comes knocking at the door. She was rather happy that Daikichi took Kouki home with him. So with Rin and Yukari, Kouki’s mother, in the kitchen they managed to whip up something delicious for dinner. Yukari was very happy to see that Kouki was smiling so much, she tells Daikichi that he doesn’t do that very often. It’s getting late so Daikichi called Yukari and Kouki a cab to take them both home. The cab finally arrives and Yukari and Kouki are ready to go home. Daikichi quickly follows Yukari outside with an umbrella to keep her dry. And for a minute she couldn’t take her eyes of him. There it is! The spark! I know that they would be a great couple! Make it happen! A great ending for a great episode!
