「逢いたい時にあなたはいない…」 (Aitai Tokini Anata wa Inai)
“You’re not There When I Want To See You…”
Even if this week’s episode didn’t tickle your fancy with certain scenes, there was still more than enough good material to balance out Sora’s insanely intricate and detailed fantasies. In a way, the story seems to have finally looped back to tackle the big problem that’s at least been on mind since the very beginning of the series — how does a college student raise three children while still maintaining his sanity?
「ちょっとマイウェイ」 (Chotto Mai Way)
“My Way For a Little”
They should have titled this episode “Miu’s Day”
“I Will Not Allow It!”
I really like the way Papakiki handles the problems that are given to its characters. Some of you may call it a cop-out but I loved how so many different things were all tied together in such a cohesive manner. Who would have thought that a few side characters would have had such a huge role?
「毎度おさわがせします」 (Maido Osawagaseshimasu)
“Thank you for Always Putting up With Us”
Now that’s what I’m talking about — throwing some curve balls to liven things up!
「素晴らしき家族旅行」 (Subarashiki Kazokuryokou)
“A Wonderful Family Trip”
Given how we’re about half way through the series, I must say how impressed I am with how the story and the characters have managed to keep my attention even though there’s not really much happening.
「少女に何が起こったか」 (Shoujo ni Nani ga Okottaka)
“What Happened to the Girl?”
Only in an anime can you have a guy looking cool while holding a Band-Aid.
「ワンダフルライフ」 (Wondafuru Raifu)
Now that things have finally settled down and most of the drama has been left in the past, it’s nice to finally have an episode where everything else that’s good about this show gets a chance to show itself. Especially things like the ridiculous situations three young girls can get into when left all by themselves.
“I Won’t Cry”
With everyone’s emotions jumping from one end of the spectrum to the other, this week’s episode was full of laughs and surprisingly touching moments.
I’ll take this opportunity to say it again — if you still have reservations about watching this show, you need to give them up and give this show a shot. Especially if you love some good, old fashioned family drama.
