The episode starts with Tatsumi outside of the house. Two kids are playing around with a shell, so after they run off he picks it up and instantly knows it’s another one of Wakasa’s friends. This little guy is called Maki and not only does he have an incredibly deep voice, but he’s also super shy and kind of depressing.
Unlike Wakasa’s other friends, this one seems kind of useful. He cleans up the tub and removes all of the slime. Tatsumi definitely approves of him and with good reason. Wakasa makes a mess and it’s a hard job to clean it all up, so if someone else can do that and it’s their food source then he wants that person around all the time.
Maki is a bit of a Debbie downer though, but after being cleaned his personality completely changes and he became cheerful and bright. The moment he’s reminded that he’s small he goes back to his depressing personality again.
After the last few episodes, it’s nice to see one of Wakasa’s friends. I thought the octopus was my favourite, mainly because he likes squeezing into tight spaces, but Maki seems awesome so far. And like I said before, he’s actually useful. Unlike the others who can only show up every so often since the bath is so small, Maki can stay there full time because he is small.
Maki is small, cute, and something I need in my house right now. Cleaning the bathroom would be so much easier if you had a guy like this who could just lick everything clean. If Tatsumi is smart, he’ll make sure Maki stays in his bathroom for good.
