「ただいま帰りました -home, sweet home-」 (Tadaima Kaerimashita -home, sweet home-)
“I’m Home -home, sweet home-“
After everything we’ve seen thus far, this episode was rather tame.
Boy, where do I even start? With so many different things going on and different storylines tip toeing around each other, it’s not that hard to get lost if you start thinking about things too much. Leprechauns, the end of the floating cities, Willem’s past, and Ctholly’s body turning more human are just a few items on this nearly endless list. That said, unlike other shows where an overload of information would cause me to lose interest, SukaSuka seems to be doing quite the opposite by drawing me deeper and deeper with each new development. Something that I thought was a little strange until I took a second to really think about what’s going on. Unlike those other shows, SukaSuka has somehow managed to keep everything it’s thrown at us somewhat relevant to the overarching story involving our main man Willem and to a lesser extent Ctholly. A feat that I have to give the story props for since this is something that’s been attempted and failed at by a lot of shows that came before it.
Don’t get me wrong though, there are definitely some issues with SukaSuka’s pacing and if you don’t adjust your expectations accordingly when it comes to the flow of time it’s pretty easy to start picking things apart from the seam. Luckily, the show doesn’t take itself too seriously and gives us ample material to find pleasure in be it in the form of laughs or adorable aww moments.
Getting back on track though, it looks like things are finally starting to ramp up when it comes to Ctholly and her return to the real world. Because as much as I’d love to believe that she’s just a regular person now who just happens to have been made from the spirit of a dead human, I’m sure (just like everything else in this show) that there’s a lot more hiding beneath the surface. If anything, it’s a damn shame that the Old Sage diadn’t provide us with more information since it’s also super obvious that he’s hiding some crucial information from Willem. That said, if it weren’t for this situation, we probably wouldn’t have got to see Willem casually address the Old Sage and confuse the heck out of Nygglatho and Limeskin (overall I’d say that was pretty worth).
So with Ctholly trying to pursue a budding romance and no clear indication on where Willem’s feelings are, I do hope that the story throws us a bone and clarifies things sooner rather than later. Because as much as I’d like to see Ctholly find true love, there are a lot of other things that we know barely anything about and I for one would love to get more information about said things.
In any case, I’ll catch you guys next week where it looks like the action is ready to start ramping up again. See you then!
