Short Anime Recaps – Orenchi & Danna

Orenchi no Furo Jijou

Orenchi no Furo Jijou - Wakasa, Mikuni, and Takasu

It’s Halloween at the bathtub of money doom. Wakasa, Mikuni, and Takasu all dress up and go trick or treating. There’s only one door though, the one to leave the bathroom, so Tatsumi stands outside the door and gives them candy when they knock. The crew of sea creatures are happy with the haul that they got, but once they realize that Tatsumi didn’t get any they ask him to choose between Trick or Treat.

He chooses Trick.

Now that Halloween is over, Tatsumi goes off to make dinner and smashes the Jack-o’-lantern that he made.

Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken - Karou & her doctor

The episode starts with Kaoru coming home from work and collapsing. Her doctor told her to stop smoking, which kind of makes me think she’s pregnant. The reason why Kaoru has been smoking so much is that she’s stressed over the change in Hajime. She misses her NEET husband who was weird and awkward and not this one who smiles in a fake way. Kaoru loves it when her husband acts more like an otaku than when he’s normal.

Hajime seems to be distressed by Karou’s collapse and wants to work even harder. He also goes to some guy, who according to one person on MAL is Karou’s father, and asks for a punch. He gets rejected because Kaoru wouldn’t like that.

Seems like Hajime is acting really weird, what with him asking for more work and wanting to be hit, but it’s because Kaoru is pregnant. Considering the amount of times she jumped him in the last episode, it’s not that surprising that she’s now with child. I have to say though that I’m excited to see how the kid turns out.

Not much comedy from Danna this week. It was actually more confusing than anything.

I do like both, but this week Orenchi did better simply because it was straightforward and had a clear plot. Plus, it’s quite timely considering Halloween just happened. With Danna, I was confused during my first viewing of the episode and had to look at what others were saying to make sense of it. Even after watching it again, I still don’t get the scene involving Hajime and the man at the restaurant who might be Kaoru ‘s father. He’s married, so why does he need to be hit in the first place?

I just don’t get it.

I do like the pregnancy reveal though. At the end of the day, both are still cute so it was a win-win for me.
