Episode 5

Just a relaxing episode of drinking and sharing of thoughts I guess. I wasn't too interested in this one but some of the imagination and teasing scenes were amusing to watch.

I never knew that about Yasaburo's mother so yeah.

Relaxing ?? Episode 5

I actually have a bad feeling about this anime and it aint going to be pretty

...somehow I can feel the tension inside Yasaburo, not that somebody wants to eat me

but inspite of that , I love the art and direction, animation in this episode

Wonderfully complex.

I'm calling it now: Benten WILL NOT eat Yasaburo.

EDIT: This is how I see it. Benten is in love/really likes Yasaburo and is a little torn between her affection for him and the fact that he is a tanuki, probably due to the fact that she has been used to seeing tanuki as food. Also (and I have no evidence to back this up), but maybe she feels a little bit of guilt for eating his father.
Finally, she was paying pretty close attention to the one guy's story about how he found Yasaburo's mother. That smug smile she usually has was gone.

I also think Benten will not eat Yasaburo.

(or that it wil happen in a loving way that Yasaburo accepts)

I love the pace of this show, and enjoyed this episode. But I hope we get to see more of Benten with Professor Akadama before too long.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if she wanted to eat him up some other way that isn't quite so bad...

But the story about his mother... gah... tough life there as a tanuki!

Stlil relaxing, that episode not quite as good as the previous one.

Well I'm think it would still be in a hot pot, but that he'd be okay with it.

It felt that way to me. The drinks under the moon created the atmosphere, no?

I cannot process that haha. Willingly getting eaten?

"It's a life or death matter for me." That's what Yasaburo says, so I don't really see him willingly going into a hot pot. Plus, he talked a lot in the earlier episodes about how he loved being alive and imitating humans, etc. No matter how lovingly Benten might eat him, I don't think that would take the edge off being killed for food.

Thats why I didnt find this episode relaxing at all ... even with the lovely moonlit night and friendship

I felt like being fed before getting slaughtered , for some reason I felt a tremendous amount of the anxiety behind this thought ...and right after I was watching Attack on Titans..and Silver Spoon lol

Episode 5:

So what is the Friday Fellows' motivation to eat Tanuki? Is it just a tradition in their club? Seriously, those guys are messed up especially that Hotei or whatever his name was "Tanuki are cute so I'll eat them"...wtf

And what is Benten's purpose for being in that club as well? Why is she there and why does she eat Tanuki hot pot too even though Yasuborou was a pretty close character with her it seems.

What about the Tengu? Why aren't they being made into hot pot along with the Tanuki as well?

Episode 6

Bit of a slow but pleasant episode imo. So we find out a little history regarding Satomi. The talk with the frog sure was something though. Next week's episode looks exciting ^_-
