Tari Tari 08

I know. I know. It’s not your fault you’re born awesome too. Ok I jest.

Konatsu yuri flag confirmed.

…. Wien’s room is larger than my own living room. What the hell, he was Sanzenin-level rich?!

Not a good thing to say, Sawa. Not a good thing to say…. Wakana’s reply here made me sad ;_;

Tari Tari

Awwwww Sawa’s dad. This part really got to me. *sniff*

Tari Tari

Wakana sure inherited her dad’s troll genes.

Tari Tari

Ahhh so that’s where you park your horses.

Well, even the perfect Sawa is not always perfect… as this episode shows. I really felt Sawa was way too swept up in her own problems this week, but it was done in a way that didn’t make her feel like she was being a selfish cunt, which is quite a miracle of writing for me. It’s definitely understandable how upset she is about not being able to take the path towards her dreams… foiled by circumstances out of her control. The world’s just not that fair. If only she could swap bodies with Konatsu someho– no, let’s not go there. *ahem*

Luckily, like Wakana’s arc, with the help of friends and family, Sawa manages to snap out of it and focus back on the thing she can do for now. I quite like Tari Tari’s approach here for dealing with drama in such a natural way, involving most of the main characters somehow so that they don’t feel abandoned or forgotten. This show does a great job telling us it’s about the quintet, not just one person at a time.

Looking at things, we’ll be moving on to one of the boys next time. Wien arguably has the least character development so far, so it’s fair time he gets his turn. Heck I don’t even remember his real name… was it even mentioned?

    The road to become a kickass nomad archer is harsh.

    For some reason I was convinced Sawa’s dad decided to overreact on the phone so that everyone could hear. I guess that kind of ruined the moment for me.

    No amount of shouting is overreaction WHEN MY BELOVED DAUGHTER IS CRYING FUCK YOU.

    Of course Wien’s name has yet to be mentioned; it’s a pseudonym that he uses so he can protect teh evils the world

    Along with “Tari Tari Troll” and their leader “Tari Tari GENGHIS KHAN”,
    he is “Tari Tari Sausage” or as they’ve affectionately called him, Wien =w=

    GENGHIS SAWA

    I wonder how she’s gonna get her bicycle home.

    Also I like how they go to Wien’s house and the piano is in disrepair. So useless.

    I totally felt for Sawa when she exploded at those two girls earlier in the episode. I kinda wish Wakana didn’t stop her so that we’d get to see how far she’d lash out on them.
    It was also sweet when they all sang over the phone for Sawa.

    Damn, who would have thought that Wakana becomes such an angel. The vice-director never stood a chance against so much niceness!

    But yeah about Sawa’s dream: While their is no restriction how tall the jockey should be (in fact, having long legs are quite useful), the average weight is arouund 126 lb (57 kg) including the jockey’s equipment.

    On the other hand, for the Spanish Riding School in Vienna for example you need to be 170 cm tall! Don’t tell me, that is the reason, they have Wien in this show!
