Hanasaku Iroha 10

Hanasaku Iroha

Ohana gets sick and the show starts getting rather surreal with delusions and weird time jumps here and there. I’m still not quite sure what happened and what didn’t happen in this episode that is for real.

Tooru surprisingly became the most interesting one to watch this week with his weird/cute reactions towards the news of Ohana getting sick and getting worried quite badly about her. Looks like Minko-hime is starting to pick up his feelings for Ohana though… but I’m still not sure some of the events in this episode actually happened (especially the strawberry scene) or not.

Still, it was rather d’awwwwww seeing Ohana worrying so much about being sick and not being useful to the point it was probably affecting her perception of reality. Seriously, it just kinda breaks my heart because it feels as if she has never been nursed by anyone in her life before or in a position to afford getting sick in the first place. Well, considering how haphazard her mom’s parenting is…

On that note, next week looks like Ohana’s mom will be making a return back to the show. And from the looks of the preview it looks like she’s going to stir shit up for Ohana again. Well, the drama looks set to be back in full swing next week!

Mother of the Year returns!

There’s also an interesting little plot device that was extended from the local legend that was mentioned a few episodes back. Part of Ohana’s delusion involved her at the shrine with a little mysterious girl and a fox watching her. Wonder if that was random or are they going to play on that later?

Also, what happened to Yuina-hime? This makes it two episodes in a row that she’s not around :(

    Why were Enishi and Taro were sorta pushed back from visiting Ohana by Tomoe and Sui? Didn’t quite understand the reason.

    I think the implication was those two were making things worse for Ohana instead of better.

    Anyways someone put up a rough time line of this episode’s events on 2chan, here’s a brief summary:

    ・ Ohana wakes up
    ・ Minchi wakes up
    ・ Ohana, cleans up Kissuisou
    ・ Ohana, brings tea to the guests.
    ・ Ohana, confirms stuff from the whiteboard (Minchi getting asked to grill the fish)
    ・ Ohana, attempt at bat extermination.
    ・ Ohana collapses, Mame・jii discovers her.
    ・ Nakochi rushes in to the kitchen to announce Ohana’s collapse (Minchi getting scolded for not grilling the fish properly)
    ・ Everyone worrying about Ohana scene
    ・ Jiroumaru, visits Ohana with this fanfic.
    ・ Tooru, brings lunch to Ohana.
    ・ Nakochi, brings a snack to Ohana.
    ・ Sui visits Ohana.
    ・ Ohana, first shrine dream (Kou: “Please come back.”)
    ・ Customers praise Ohana’s service scene.
    ・ Minchi, checks up on Ohana (Magic Marker delusion scene)
    ・ Nakochi, checks up on Ohana again.
    ・ Nightime, Sui and Tomoe visiting Ohana. Nakochi telling Ohana she’s needed at Kissuisou.
    ・ Ohana, 2nd dream (Kou fades out)

    Makes more sense of the episode, if you find it hard to figure out by yourself.

    > it feels as if she has never been nursed by anyone in her life before
    Sounds like a certain cross-dressing butlet… ww

    What I really want to know is whether or not Minchi drew on Ohana’s face. Or was that a sequence she only “wanted” to see?

    Seriously, CrunchyRoll, trying to translate Zettai Ryouiki was full of fail. I had the sound volume down and wasn’t listening all that attentively, so when that line came up I was like “Huh?!”. Going back and actually listening explained everything, but still…

    Mother of the Year? Ohana’s Mom?
    I thought it went to Mikoto’s Mom? lol…

    I think next ep is a flashback.

    And any subtlety about his feelings for Ohana have dissipated completely from Tohru’s character~
    At least Minko’s starting to take notice, so we will most likely see that develop into a conflict somewhere down the line. I’m readying my Ohana banner, seat, and popcorn already.
