Youta is back and asks his brother and sister-in-law how their first date was. Good question, because I’d seriously love to know how these two people, who had those kinds of views about marriage, ended up together. Youta wants to know so he can use it in his BL manga.
Looks like she was the supervisor at his work, I’m only speculating though since I don’t know, and thought that he was the least manly guy that she’s ever saw. She asks him to place a stick on something, which he agrees to. She then asks him to confirm the stock. He agrees again. She then asks him if he wants to go out somewhere and he agrees again.
I guess this means that they already liked each other at this point. Now I want to know how they met and how Hajime proposed to her.
Hajime isn’t sure what to do, but Youta told him that acting natural is best. Meanwhile, Kaoru tells her father that she’s going on a date and he doesn’t seem to be taking it all that well. He seems intent on killing the guy taking his precious daughter away.
The date isn’t anything fancy or special, they spent it mostly walking and talking but they both had a great time. Hajime usually did fake smiles, but he was pretty genuine during their time out. While they were walking, Hajime ends up confessing to Kaoru. He forgot to do it before, so before anything else progresses in their date he decides to man up and finally confess.
Their date cute, but incredibly unremarkable. This may seem like a bad thing, but it isn’t. For a show like this, it’s nice. This is a story about a normal couple doing normal things, so their date fit their personalities. Unfortunately, it didn’t work for Youta who seems unable to use their story for his manga.
I wish I watched this anime before, because if I was doing the 30 day anime challenge again I would have them as my favourite anime couple. It’s kind of refreshing to watch two normal people who genuinely like each other and not suffer from angst or drama. Like every couple out there, they do have their own issues and problems that they need to deal with, but unlike other shows where this issue might last long, it doesn’t here. The studio only has three minutes, so that may be one of the contributing factors to this.. But I think it’s because they’re older and are able to handle things in a mature and adult way.
It’s a breath of fresh air, but I don’t think this will work for others as it may seem boring. Unlike the other episodes, this one didn’t really have any sort of comedy to it. The dad’s reaction was the only thing that was meant to make us laugh, but other than that nothing else really.
Then again, it seems like the last few episodes have been like this. Instead of following multiple story lines, it’s mostly been about Hajime and Kaoru and their cute marriage. Even though it’s the same show, the latter episodes do have a different feel to them when you compare it to the earlier ones.
In any case, I’m still enjoy the show quite a bit and I’m glad that we got to see their first date. But now I’m wondering about their first meeting and the moment that they became aware of each other. Did their feelings start gradually, or was it an instant connection? How did they get married? And how is Kaoru dealing with morning sickness?
I want to know.
