Working!!! episode 04
Another interesting episode. I find that these episodes can be quite misleading when it comes to the Working series. You think something’s about to happen due to the amount of progress some characters seem to be making, only to feel betrayed afterwards.
So Jun and Yachiyo’s relationship has been progressing quite nicely since last week. Yachiyo knew that there’s a girl that Jun likes, she just doesn’t know who that girl is, which makes it a little harder for her to approach him. She realizes that she doesn’t want him to be just a friend anymore. She wants something more, but she doesn’t know what that is. She’s socially quite awkward and doesn’t know much about relationship or love in general, which only ends up making things harder. We’ve reached a point where I want it to be over with; let them become an item already. It’s been long enough.
The unexpected twist during this episode was when souta started to see Mahiru a little differently. He thought that she was cute, even though, in his mind at least, only adorable things (like children and little animals) are usually the only things he finds cute. Quite the interesting development no matter how you look at it.
But hey, it’ll probably be like Jun and Yachiyo; it’ll be milked until it completely stops being funny. That whole awkwardness between Jun and Yachiyo stopped being funny last season, so I wonder how fast this will stop being funny. There really aren’t a lot of possibilities when we’re talking about a girl that doesn’t like to communicate with people from the opposite sex.
