「給食当番をした」 (Kyuushoku Touban Wo Shita)
“I Took Lunch Duty”
This episode felt like a trip down memory lane – both for the characters and me.
Working with Wood
Totally off point with what I thought I was going to talk about, but boy do I regret not taking woodworking as an elective back in high school. Thinking back about it now makes me realize just how useful understanding the basics of how to work with wood just really is when you get older. Besides the basic safety practices, it makes me feel kind of dumb thinking about how foreign using a saw (or saw-type tool) is to me. Sure, it may not be an everyday life skill, but there have definitely been times I wish I could make me own little crafts when the situation called for it!
While it wasn’t the cute “hnnnng” inducing moment I’d hope it would be, I’ll never pass up an opportunity to see Ren-chon in baby form. Giving up the ability to talk in exchange to literally do whatever the heck she wants, it’s quite impressive how she’s able to steal the scene without even saying a word! That said, I really enjoyed seeing younger versions of everyone else as well. From Nagashiya to Natsumi, it’s cool to see how they used to be especially when you mentally compare it to how they are in the present.
Now, getting back onto the topic at hand was the insane amount of nostalgia the last skit unleashed upon us with the tiny amount of time it had left. I’m sure everyone who’s watching this show has or had something they cherished when they were younger. Be it a stuffed animal or a super bouncy ball, the memories associated with that cherished item will never go away. Sure, they might be temporarily forgotten or the item in question may disappear into space, but the moment something reminds you of it, everything will quickly flood right back.
Anyways, I just wanted to say that I hope you got the same sort of nostalgia blast like I did watching Komari fix up her beloved Shokichi-san and in the process remember some of fun times she shared with him.
With hit after hit, I’m really surprised how well this second season has been doing. Never really hitting a dull moment, I’m happily waiting for whatever the writers have in store for us next week. Judging from some of the preview scenes, it looks like a bunch of embarrassing things are about to happen. In any case, I’ll catch you guys next week for your daily dose of Ren-chon and friends!
