First child labor, now rape?
Shit gets serious real fast in Hanasaku Iroha.
Iroha 2 continues to explore Ohana’s character in more depth, establishing her as quite a 3-dimensional character. In contrast to episode 1, where we saw most of Ohana’s positive traits, episode 2 shows more of her negative sides. We get to see that while she might be headstrong and independent, she also is able to get mad at others and even tries to get back at them, however small way it might be. Also that ky side of hers too. While I can understand her enthusiasm to help, but sometimes she just doesn’t try to think it thoroughly first… then again, Nako should have taught her properly as a senpai instead of shying away all the time.
“You are a shitty mom and even I know it!”
Iroha 2 also shows how Ohana’s mother is a solid contender for QUALITY Mother of the Year already. Making your child cook for you since kindergarten, not coming for Parent’s Day at school despite promising to and further more teaching your child not to believe in others? Yeah, QUALITY parenting right there. I’m surprised Ohana didn’t end up worse than she is now. Poor girl ;_;.
And dammit, that cliffhanger at the end there. I think that novelist guy has some weird ephebophilia fetish for Ohana or something. Oh well, from the preview it doesn’t seem like anything horrible is going to happen, but still….
