Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi – 09
「波打ちぎわの黒ウサギ」 (Namiuchigiwa no Kuro Usagi)
“Black Rabbit on the Beach”
Finally, it’s time for the silly High School romance/battle I’ve been waiting for. Except instead of just feelings being on the line, the fate of the entire universe may be at stake! I wish I knew what Yuuichi had up his sleeves, especially since he’s really coming off as a pretty conniving person right now. He may be a little predisposed with those shiny glasses of his but something about his overall demeanor just felt a little evil. At the same time, it’s hard to fault him when he tramples over Gekkou’s pride so much — it’s just too damn fun to watch Gekkou lose his cool.
But focusing on the current problem at hand, I thought we already established that Himea wasn’t Ramiel Lilith. Apparently Himea doesn’t know herself or the universe has some bad information on hand. Either ways, it’s a bit much to take in that the entire universe is watching their every move. And if it’s so crucial for Taito to not upset Himea, it baffles me why Haruka is even allowed to be within a few hundred meters of him. Since if she gets the opportunity to confess to him, can you imagine how bad things would get? Oh wait! She Did!
At this point in time, I’m once again terribly confused where this show is trying to go. I can feel a really good story trying to be built up, but it keeps getting knocked aside in favor for cramming as much story into one episode as possible. I think the only thing pushing me forward is Yuuichi’s selective attitude toward his stuents and Himea’s blossoming friendship with Izumi. I’m not a huge fan of watching people let opportunities walk right past them, and I’m hoping that Izumi can instill some fighting spirit into Himea to get her man back!
P.S. For the few of you who actually read these posts, I decided to change Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi to the shorter post format. I’m a bit swamped with work and school, and I decided to finally see if this format will actually save some time.
