Tsuritama ~ epi 03
Sorry for the delay, my period had started and couldn’t finish written the review -_- . If see any grammar & spell error, please forgive, I was kinda rush this out before the news episode come out + I been busy and going through lot of stress. >.>
This week fishing practice, Natsuki makes Yuki & Haru do some casting in bucket, since they’re not ready for the ocean. I didn’t know you have to learn casting before fishing, I though you just throw the line and wait. In order to cast it in bucket it’s all about timing, so Natuski teach them the technique in counting to 3 - Enoshima Bowl ( Eno-Shima-Don ). During practice Haru got fighten of Akira, who was watch them for distant….at least for 3 whole mins before walking away.
While trio continued trio practicing, we got see Daily life of Akira & Tapioca where he visit Heming Way to check out some fishing rod. Misaki sees Tapica and ask ‘it’ for its named, Sadly Akira thought Misaki was asking for his name, but instead she was asking for duck’s named. disappointed for Akira, he thought he’d make a friend. Afterward he checks out the shinra where people doing the Enoshima dance, he doesn’t look so pleased. last he tries out Whitebait bowl & Enoshima Bowl at Natsuki’s fahter’s shop.
During the evening the trio was still practicing, Natsuki teachs Yuki a other technique ”Feathering” that control travel of the casting distance.
By night Natsuki was cooking for his father & sister, we learn that Natsuki’s family used to fish in past and Natsuki praying to his mother( a hint that his mother is really died), while his father continued to talk about fishing and doesn’t pray attention to Natsuki or brother devotion his dead wife.
Over Yuki’s house, Yuki was practicing casting with his hand while Haru & Kate was washing the dishes. The peace didn’t last long when the drama come in where Kate announces that she going to be hospitalize for couple days, and that Yuki won’t be alone this time since he got Haru. The news leaves Yuki worried & upsetting that Kate never tells him about it.
You know that Duck curry place? Well It turned out to be secret hineout for Akira and his MIB teams who works for Duck organization. Akira update his boss ( the drag-queen guy ) that JF1 ( Haru ) and JF2 ( Coco ) can mind control human by using they water gun and making Yuki perform the Enoshima Dance. Toward the end of the call, boss leave the rest on Akira and all them did a Duck pose just like Kiraboshi in Star Driver lol. It seem Akira isn’t happy working for them, as they make treat him as a fool?
More on Sci-fi side we see Coco and Haru can telepathy while bathing, Coco is bathing in her ufo. Haru told her that he’s scared of Akira & Tapioca , Coco believe the Tapioca is some kind weapon and suggest him to leave the house and gave up on Yuki.
Haru & Kate have one last heartwarming talk before Kate leaves for the hospital. Haru doesn’t understand why Kate was tend her flowers when they going to died someday. So Kate explains that she want make them bloom beautiful before they died. She then thanks him for making her happy for being there for Yuki and gave Haru flowers plot to think of her when he have an problems or get in to fight with Yuki.
The next morning Yuki helps Kate to pack up, Kate does Enoshima Bowl and encourage Yuki not to give up.
After school, thing got more depressing for Yuki, when Haru tries to cheer Yuki up by saying the wrong words he got from Kate “Everyone dies someday”. Next day Haru tries to get Yuki out bed for school but he just won’t. By the end of the day Natsuki came over to urge him to go casting to clean out his mind from depression.
The only time Yuki came out of his bed is to eat food. Which leave Haru to cheer up Yuki again by telling him that Kate will be happy if Yuki gets Enoshima Bowl. With no lucky, Yuki got pissed off that Haru wouldn’t understand his pain, since Haru is an alien. So Haru start to chanting to flowers -
“May Yuki smile. May yuki be happy. May Yuki get the Enoshima bowl in. May Kate get better. This is Kate. They’ll all die eventually, So I want them to bloom beautifully and healthily while they’re alive. That’s what Kate said.”
Haru was in despair of giving up when Coco suggest him to break thing of with Yuki and give up on up him since he don’t feel same way to Haru. Haru snapped of his despair when he sees Yuki casting a Enoshima bowl, despite Coco sees Akira and tries pull her Haru away from Yuki.
Now not sure if Haru see Akira like Coco does, but he ran to Yuki’s side shouting Enoshima bowl along with Yuki. Yuki has finally made Enoshima bowl when discovers the key ‘slipping his finger’ he able to make it or pretty much ways he didn’t pay attention to Natsuki again. In adorable way for Haru to celebrated Yuki’s achievement, he jumps on Yuki’s back and embrace him. Lucky for Yuki, Natsuki‘s witnessed his achievement.
With surprising way to end the episode is the friendship development between Yuki & Natsuki helped of Haru, who told Natsuki that Yuki’s is his friend now for making him happy. -
Yuki: Thanks. I did it. Thanks.
Natsuki: I didn’t do anything.
Haru: Natsuki, you’re wrong. You taught Yuki the enoshima bowl. That’s why Yuki’s happy. You become Yuki’s friend. That’s why Yuki’s happy.
Haru: You thanks someone because you’re happy.
Natsuki: Yuki, You haven’t seen anything yet.
For Akira pointed of view, he doesn’t like their relationship as he see it stifling to him. After he left Yuki & Haru continued casting…..in the rainy night, like they don’t care if one them gets a cold…..While we see happy side of Natsuki springing in rain trying to control his smile & yelling out his feelings.
—————————————-Episode 4 Preview
Yuki & Haru still practice casting, Natsuki’s family does the Enoshima Dance with Haru, Haru & Yuki eating Enoshima bowl, they finally went back fishing in ocean and Yuki got hold of fish?
Ahhh yeah this episode was really great, better than last one, this show getting so much interesting. The episode started of normal, then gets pretty depression along with mysteries hints & sci-fi, towards the end, we got lighthearted ending episode . The frienship development in this episode is just so so so….perfect and touching even there’s was little more dynamic ;_;, not even KTM can make cry in happy tears over beautiful friendships. We also got more mysteries side of Akira and who he’s working for & Alien siblings which very interesting. I still don’t know how it’s relate to goddess & dragon story, but I bet the Duck organization are dragons. The family drama gets little more melodrama I didn’t expect Kate will be hospital right away, at least we didn’t see her ambulance to hospital, I sense death flag on Kate ;_; and maybe on Haru since he can’t live without water, also the relationship between Kate & Yuki. On less melodrama side we learn that Natsuki & his family used fish togather, and that Natsuki lets Yuki & Haru used Enoshima Bowl technique even throught it’s his family’s secret.
Overall I really like where the story is going, unique & whimsical is still there, and not so dark what I predicted or showed in this episode, Natsuki & Yuki is finally smiling and scream out his feeling, Haru showing his worried & care side instead of genki-type-who-bug-Yuki-to-fish.
Akira & Duck organization
So I was right about Akira working for some one, but who is that queen-guy? he sound pretty evil to me, wait what if he the bad guy? then again seem like they’re secret organization who looks in Paranormal stuff, but what’s up with fashionable people and place??? who are they?? why used “Duck” as mascots? are they evil or Alien??? OR five headdragon? Akira doesn’t seem to take much interesting in it, so that mean he isn’t an bad guy? Oh and I never thought of Duck Curry was secert hideout for Akira & his team, actually today( before I watched it ) I was thinking maybe reason Haru was so mad at Duck Curry because it’s Akira hide out. I thought Duck Curry serve duck curry meat O_o…or least it misleading name.
Now for Akira, I think understand why he hate Yuki & Haru relationship, I suspect he doesn’t have any friends. I mean there’s hints going around like he was disappointed that Misaki didn’t ask for his named, at first when she was asking for name – he thought he finally making a friend or maybe get an gf ( btw I shipped them ), and other hints is that, he doesn’t seem to happy working with Duck organization, not even sure he will accomplish his mission or join Yuki’s side. I believe that Drag-queen boss force Akira to joined them or they will take his Duck away…..Man this will just get more Interesting to see what side he will choose.
Haru & Coco, Alien
Judging by Coco’s ufo is filled with water only, the fish in fish bowl was gone, Haru said he will died witout water, water gun, and they can telepathy through water while bathing? this just all added up that they’re not just an alien, their alien fish that depend on water just like flowers, and I bet their home plants have 90% of water. A other thing is, Why does Duck organization named them JF1 & JF2? the only thing that JF stand for is Jellyfish, and Jellyfish need water or they will die. But wait Coco is an fish, it was showed back in episode 1…..Are they going to kidnapped them?? Ahhhh don’t understand it, but I glad they’re not cliché aliens, like we see in animes these days, however seem to be other aliens on earth, at least what Duck Organization’s mentioned.
Haru & Kate and Kate & Yuki’s relationship
Ah I just love heart to heart talk and I love how Kate makes Haru understand basic human emotions and humanity, helping out Haru’s relationship with Yuki, and gave Haru a flowers plot to help him out while she gone. Gosh this make want cry bad, I just want Haru to live with Kate & Yuki and be happy family ;_;. Sadly Kate probably going to died…and….. Never mind I just can’t type this out anymore, it’s making me so emotional, but in ways I just love their interaction.
As for Kate’s relationship with Yuki, I don’t understand why she have to break the news about saying at Hospital for while. I thought she wanted to keep a secret from Yuki, I mean she should had said “Oh going to visit a friend for while.” Poor Yuki, Kate is the only person who came to love, and if she dies Yuki will be alone…not really alone, but as in have no other family memebers beside Kate, and Kate is the only one who understand Yuki and came to love. I do like how she put on smile & being all cheerful even when she announced the news to him.
Haru & Yuki
Ahhh so much feeling about them in this episode….ok maybe it onesided friendship development Haru to Yuki only, where Yuki doesn’t really care much about him. Even though they fight, Haru just a sweet boy to put lot efforts to care for Yuki’s happiness than himself even when Coco told him to gave up, he won’t because he saw how frustrated Yuki were and doesn’t want Yuki to unhappy and be alone, not because Kate’s will, it’s because he care deeply for Yuki even tough Yuki doesn’t care Haru.
I wonder if my theories about Yuki caring less about Haru, may come true, he don’t seem to take noticed that Haru has changed lot since they first met, he more focus on Natsuki than Haru. This make me think even more farther; like what if Haru ended leaving Yuki? Yuki only seem to be interesting being friends with Natsuki and Haru isn’t no longer needed? than again that would upset Kate, on less he’s talk to her about Yuki is Natsuki’s friend. For better theories you should read this tumblr-er post, kind same but better grammar and theories.
For some reason – I feel like Haru & Yuki’s relationship will play important/major role or relationship later on, not that i’m evil but I’d like see angst going on >.>, angst friendship are one of my favorite in friendship’s story.
Natuki & Yuki
I can finally say Natsuki & Yuki become friends, thanks to Haru . It’s like the wall between Natsuki & Yuki is breaking down, that they are more open to each other then it were to episode 2 back. Heck even Natsuki yell out his feelings of happiness what Haru mentioned about Yuki’s feelings & thankfulness toward Natsuki and each time Yuki’s accomplished each goals.
-Kate may have cancer and may died
-Haru may died if does get any water, may get captured by Duck organization
-Haru will make a discover that Yuki don’t need him or want be friendship with him, no matter what Haru does.
