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 :(
