Yokoi can never catch a break, can she?
Grade 2 Certification in Knitting means what exactly?
After weeks of watching Yokoi get wrapped up in Seki-kun’s random games and at times not even knowing what she’s walking/flicking/jumping into, I thought it was great that she finally got the opportunity to relish in the notion that she was better than him at something. And personally, I thought it was great that of all the things it could have been, it was knitting. I don’t know about you but I’ve seen some of my girl friends get into some serious arguments over the slightest things. At times getting so infuriated that they’ll turn beet red and just storm off — something that I wished translated into this week’s episode.
Afghan Stitches and Fancy Tools
Alas, in typical Seki-kun fashion he managed to outplay Yokoi not once but twice this week. Starting with the way he knitted that cute little cactus, I was so sad to watch Yokoi eat her words after going through all that trouble to explain just why Seki-kun was in the wrong (she even called him a hipster!). But seeing how Seki-kun never does anything without a lot of preparation beforehand (including setup and breakdown!), I guess I shouldn’t have been as surprised as I was.
Second, whether it was intentional or not, destroying that cactus of his was probably the worst thing he could have done. If I were in his shoes, I definitely wouldn’t want Yokoi breathing down my back with a look like this. Too bad he dismantled his amigurumi too quickly!
While there isn’t much to speculate about in a show like this, I just wanted to take a second to point out how nice everything’s been looking for the past two episodes. Unlike some way back when that looked pretty bad, everything (especially the cut scenes) have been looking great.
Anyways, thanks again for reading and commenting on the post! I really do appreciate it. See you next week!
