Lamune – 02
We open with a pair of flashbacks showing Kenji and Nanami playing together and even bathing together. In the present, Nanami wakes up and goes to Kenji’s room to pull him out of bed. On the way to school and after being teased by their friends, Kenji starts calling Nanami “Konoe-san,” so Nanami starts to call him “Tomosaka-kun.” At the end of school, the two are approached by Sakura Hiromi, who greets Kenji, but can’t find the words to say much else. When Kenji gets happy thinking that she might like him, Nanami becomes angry and walks home without speaking to him. However, even Nanami’s mother knows that Nanami can’t stay angry at him for long and that the two are inseparable. Nanami, who seems to have forgiven Kenji, pulls him to go with her to water the fields. The two fully make up after a conversation about taking care of each other while they were sick.
This episode is alright, more of the calm atmosphere from last week. The animation is inconsistent throughout the episode, with the character faces looking rather slim in one scene and normal in the next. Certainly not Suzuka horrible, but it is noticeable. I’m liking all of the piano BGM pieces, but the double dose of Goto Yuko per week is somewhat getting to me.
Those two are pretty inseparable. It seems that everyone, including Nanami’s mother, is already calling them husband and wife. I reiterate what I said last week: What’s the point of the series if their relationship is already cemented? I’m kind of hoping that they’ll pull a KimiNozo type shocker to turn things upside down, but somehow I doubt it’s going to happen. The peace continues next week when we’re introduced to the Hikari-chan that they keep mentioning.
