Hanasaku Iroha 15

“Yep, this is how school trips should be like; working at the inn I’m staying with!”

So in the end, they avoided a direct confrontation between Ohana and Yuina, instead choosing to shame Yuina in to realizing her mistakes with Ohana’s hard work.

Mmm, made for less drama than I hoped for, but it was a lot better resolved in this way I guess. Yuina isn’t totally wrong about wanting to find something to do by herself, it’s just that her half-heartedness and narrow-minded view of what it means to be in the service industry made her rather… spoiled about the whole idea of working properly. That and her upbringing probably needs to be stricter. I found it utterly hillarious that she didn’t even know how to properly rinse the floor after scrubbing it when she tried to help clean the baths lol. She’d definitely not be a great wife candidate until she knows at least how to do the bare minimum of housework…

“What do you mean Ohana would make a better wife than I would?!”

Well, that said, the Yuina arc didn’t really bring on much big developments as I hoped it would be. It was pretty much introducing more of Yuina’s character properly, showcasing her negative side and resolving that for the better. Still we did get our fanservice, what with the swimsuits last week and the naked ofuro wrestling in this one (albeit tree censored)… so it wasn’t all that bad too. I was just expecting it to be a bit more… dramatic? Ahaha~

Next week looks like another Jiroumaru episode. God, I can’t believe he’s getting another one. The preview looks creepy though, so it might be more serious than I expect!

    I don’t think it was Jiroumaru at the preview. I think it was Shijima.
    Anyway liked the fanservice and looking forward to the next episode.

    Yeah, you can never really tell the difference between those two guys, they’re basically twins.

    Why am I not surprised?

    I’d rather watch Yuina lick that ice cream over and over again.

    Wait, no crying for Yuina and instead she fest it up by working? That’s disappointing!

    Anyway…all kidding aside…

    This is just a little heavy handed isn’t it?

    Ohana is such a “goog girl”.

    Someone who with no interest in the service industry is “not a good person”. Or at least not as someone who is.

    It’s wrong to priorities you own happiness and future.

    Doesn’t matter how much an ass your boss is you have to suck it up.

    Zzz… has a good point… Personally, I thought the episode was interesting in showcasing this questionable theme. But in the end, I tried to think of it as: hard work is good, and anyone who does it deserves respect. But yeah, you could take it in many negative ways.

    Personally I’m a guy, and I can’t yell at Yuina-chwan to go in the kitchen and work. That’d just be mean, plus, I wouldn’t be able to take it…. Maybe it’s just me?
