Unlike the last episode, this episode was better in delivery most of their marks right. There was a good balance of humor and drama. There were some pretty nice jokes going from discovering oil to drunk Manabe and Moritani to threesome fantasies. The oil one was especially great because it was unexpected, but fit subtly well.
The dramatic scenes weren’t overplayed either, but Kotoura’s mom is definitely scary. Why is it that Inoue Kikuko is playing bitches lately? I suppose it’s refreshing for her after playing lovely females in the past. I will say that I absolutely loved the transformation from Manabe to Kotoura’s mother in that dream. My god, that was freaky and amazing at the same time.
We got a little more backstory on Mifune and Miroto, something I’ve been wanting to see for a while now. So Miroto stuck up for Mifune long ago and because of his friendliness and respect for Mifune’s mother, Mifune fell in love with Miroto and has been trying to get under his skin since. The question is, why and how did Miroto change and is that related to his stinted growth? Or maybe it’s reverse growth. In any case, I can’t wait to hear more about their relationship and if it’ll ever go anywhere.
