Oh wow, Yuina-hime. She’s hiding some serious issues beneath that facade of hers….
So anyways the new cour of Hanasaku kicks off with pretty decent new OP by nano.RIPE, not sure if I can say the same about the ED though…I already miss Hazy T_T.
Yuina also finally gets her proper screen time and really… she’s quite a high-tension character even if it doesn’t seem like that outwardly. The general outline of her story should probably involve the pressure put on her as the heiress for her family’s inn and how she probably doesn’t have the interest in doing it. The unfortunate victim of that seems to be her fiance though, that scene at the end where she said that she didn’t have any interest in running an inn sure hurt pretty bad…
The humorous highlight of this episode had to be Minchi’s scenes. First she gets publicly stripped and thrown in to the water by Yuina, then publicly confessed by another guy. Is it just me or has she become the comic relief character? Ohana still had her moments though, like when she tried to explain “hobiron” to the poor guy who get rejected by Minchi. Valiant effort, Ohana-chan.
Fanservice-wise though, this has gotta to be the most laden one so far. Yuina? Check. Minchi? Check. Nakocchi? Check. Ohana? Double check! Definitely a good episode for
Well, next week should probably see Ohana and Yuina clashing over their differences in opinions about running an inn. Yep, more drama inbound.
