Hurr… why so emo, Tsucchi?

Despite the dramatic change of mood and tone, I quite liked how this introspective episode was done, especially when we thinking that Tsucchi was actually depressed over his failed confession last week. Turns out he went waaaaaaaaay past that and in to truly deep and dangerous territory; the meaning of working. Only one more step to the really dangerous spiral that is “the meaning of life”. Seriously, whenever I fell in to that whirlpool of thoughts, I truly felt that life was pretty damn meaningless.

Thankfully, Tsucchi has great friends around, and Anzu really shined through this episode with her persistence to cheer up Tsucchi. Coupled with a few nudges by Sakura-senpai, looks like that was enough to elevate him back out from that dangerous condition.

Also, this episode offered to explain a little about the reason behind Yamamoto-sensei’s “denseness” by using the “I have an objective to achieve.” reason. Quite a lame copout, I thought, but at least Tsucchi got to know about it. Let’s hope it does motivate him to do better from now onwards.

Finally, the preview is saying that he might be confessing to her, again, in the final episode. Wonder how that’ll turn out, considering what was just achieved in this episode.

    Personally, I felt this episode was lacking, probably due to concentrating on some form of character development rather than the usual comedic fun to expect. I doubt that next weeks finale will have any real conclusion, another of those “you want more? Buy manga” series. Well it had its moments.

    @FX102: Not surprised you feel that way, it’s rare to see a comedy show suddenly do a flip from comedy to serious introspective drama.

    Maa~ obviously the ending won’t be the real ending per se, but I still want part with the show on a good note.

    @spider: Hurr, doesn’t everyone feel like that at times?
