Wakasa watches a show where an okama complains that whenever he comes home from work, his roommate/boyfriend is there eating snacks and watching TV. It’s through this program that Wakasa learns something shocking. He’s a mooch.
I find it hilarious that he’s watching a show like this. The shounen-ai vibes are heavy once again, plus it’s funny that the only female that we’ve seen so far is Tatsumi’s little sister.
Anyways, Wakasa tries to look for work. The only thing he can write is that he has twenty years of being a merman as experience. It’s hopeless. So Tatsumi suggests that he send in postcards to try to win prizes.
Even though Wakasa reads a lot, he can’t write. Thankfully, Tatsumi is here to help him and within two hours Wakasa is able to do it all himself.
He’s still worried about being a mooch though, but Tatsumi reassures him that he’s letting a freeloader stay with him because that’s what he wants. And anyways, this would make them friends, so it’s okay. Sometime later, Wakasa wins a prize and gives it to Tatsumi.
He wanted meat, but at least this gift makes Tatsumi happy.
The episode ends with a new year’s greeting and all of Wakasa’s friends showing up at Tatsumi’s place.
Another cute episode. The think that I like about Orenchi no Furo Jijou is that even though it’s a four minute anime, it knows how to utilize it’s short time and tell a coherent story. And by the end of every episode I always left feeling satisfied.
I’m going to miss this anime. It may not have been the greatest thing and definitely not in my top fall anime list, but it’s refreshing, it’s relaxing and it always left me with a smile on my face. I’m glad I watched this.
