RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 26 (END)

「Over the rainbow」

It was pretty ambitious of the writers to slip in one more arc for Mario and go from start to finish in a mere episode, but they managed to pull it off and wrap up the second of four major manga arcs with this adaptation.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 25

「Independence」

Wow, I never thought I’d see the day where episodes of RAINBOW go smoothly two weeks in a row. Given how the series started six months ago, I’ve been approaching each arc like a complete cynic and expecting the worse from every new face encountered.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 24

「Desperate」

If there’s one thing that this episode emphasized, it’s that one may never truly comprehend an encounter until several years later.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 23

「Chance」

What I thought was going to be an arc about Suppon’s illness doubled up as one about Lily as well. It was unexpected but not a bad thing whatsoever, as it draws upon their past together and how Lily got Suppon the black market job he’s been getting by on all this time.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 22

「Emergence」

While Baremoto didn’t fully redeem himself in the conclusion of his mini arc, at least he came to his senses and made strides towards doing so. However, the most relieving thing was this episode wasn’t nearly as aggravating to watch now that everyone knows how foolish Baremoto’s been.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 21

「Blinded」

Out of all the guys, Baremoto is unquestionably the one I have the most gripes with. I would’ve thought that the fire incident back in Shonan was enough to turn his character around, but someone still has to teach him “bros before hoes” it seems. Literally.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 20

「Vocation」

After twenty weeks of K-ON and RAINBOW on Tuesdays, the two series are having an identity crisis all of a sudden. K-ON brought the emotion-filled tears with its take on the school festival, while RAINBOW brought the laughs with Kyabetsu’s search for a job that suits him. What the heck!?

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 19

「Reunion」

It turns out I gave Yamauchi a bit too much credit, even though she did call the Fukumoto Gang to deal with Tsubouchi and the Five Lemons.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 18

「Unbreakable」

It looks like being exploited for sex isn’t so bad this time around, as Joe’s new manager Yamauchi Naoko and her ties with the Fukumoto Gang actually worked in his favor.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 17

「Parting」

I got more than I bargained for this episode after asking to see more of Meg for the past while. This episode only served as a setup towards her reintroduction next time, but proved to be a pretty pivotal moment in the series as a whole with the notable direction change.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 16

「Hidden」

While I would’ve been fine with this arc involving Mario’s indictment and facing seven years in prison dragging out longer, I’m quite happy about it wrapping up swiftly this episode so that the story can move on to more interesting things.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 15

「Annoyance」

If there’s one thing to be thankful for this episode, it’s that the arc involving Ishihara and Sasaki appears to be a done deal. However, just when things were finally taking a turn for the better, Mario lashing out at an angry drunk lands him in police custody again.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 14

「Revenge」

Details behind Baremoto’s plan aside, the boys’ revenge on Sasaki did turn out more or less like I was expecting. The same goes for Ishihara, whom Mario deemed too worthless to kill after learning how Sakuragi gave him Hagino’s note to try and end things once and for all.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 13

「Recollect」

Nothing major was added in this recap episode told from Mario’s perspective, but it did go over everything that’s happened up until now. Time-wise, it slots in just after he received the bullet from Setsuko and before embarking to Numazu, Shizuoka to find and kill Ishihara.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 12

「Promise」

It wasn’t looking good for Sakuragi last time and the preview suggested he wasn’t going to pull through either, so I can’t say I’m too surprised by how things unfolded. More than anything though, I’m just bothered by how it came down to this. An-chan, you idiot.
