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 ^_-

Beautiful scenery, I love the watercolor backgrounds! Not sure the beautiful scenery and music is enough for me to buy this but once through I am thoroughly enjoying it.

Slow yes, just some conversations really but what important information they revealed, oh my!

Episode 6:



There's still a lot of her past we don't know and every new info we do get about Benten just makes her even more mysterious.

Music is still amazing of course.

This show is a surprise to me since I had no idea what it was about when I watched the first episode. Though I can say that I look forward to watching this show every week.

Makes a bit more sense now why she is so much of a 'rhymes-with-terrible-person' to Akadama now though, depending on how literal that little bit was.

This was a really good episode. Basically everything this show does right was in this one. A lot of important/interesting information came out, including:



Also, that last line of the show...that was beautiful: "But as for me, I was pretty much a frog in a well knowing nothing of the sea."

Impressive writing, and also impressive how this show continues to be interesting though conversation alone. Also, it seems Benten has a bit more a past than we might have thought. I didn't particularly like the professor-I just wanted him to leave so Benten and Yasaburo could have some alone time.

Speculation:


I don't understand how between this, Gatchaman Crowds, Railgun S, AoT and Sunday without God, that people still are saying this season is lackluster. Imo, 4 good shows a season is excellent.

I loved this episode. And, I now have a lot more understanding of Benten's character and sympathy for her,

I still do not care for those who knowingly eat sentient beings. But, it looks like most of those involved with the tanuki hotpot do not realize what they are doing.

This episode was great, I look forward to learning even more about Benten. The hotpot thing.. Yeah I still don't agree with it either but I see where their coming from. The Friday Fellows aren't bad people either. They just built them up to be. Their a bunch of drunk old guys who are following a blind tradition. I have nothing against these Friday Fellows. What I don't understand is why he just doesn't tell the professor who he is?

If you like Benten, I know I do! Then check twitter for the web page and keyword to get a special desktop image! They said not to pass it along in Japanese and I can read it so I'm not passing it along but as I said, check twitter, uchouten keyword and you will find it

Here is where you enter it:

The keyword is the name of the OP for the show in Japanese.

This reminded me of a Japanese idiom: 井蛙. It literally means a frog in a well, but translates to someone with a narrow perspective; blinkered if you will.

I love the eloquence of "But as for me, I was pretty much a frog in a well knowing nothing of the sea". The writing is one of the reasons why I love the show so much. There's a lyrical quality to it that you don't find in many shows. And Benten is the icing on that cake. :)

I love Benten. What a wonderfully complex character.

This is really my favorite show of the season. I've been taking quite a few screen caps, which I rarely do for the shows I watch.

PS: Thanks for the tip on the desktop, hpulley. It looks great.

Soichiro's one of last conversations. it was great.

and now the only bad people exist in this series are the Ebisugawas

i still can't get over how seemingly comical (to me) "no matter what, do not turn yourself into a hotpot!!" became really thought-provoking. Yodogawa is a good character and i like how his relationship (as a Friday Fellow) looses up with Yasaburou
Friday Fellows are still scary but they're not scary.............
