I could see that! All this stuff could help to explain why that son is in the situation he is in as well.

Very interesting idea. I like it. Would also explain his reason to be in the well.

Another well done episode. This series is easily my favorite of the season. Can't wait for next week to find out more about what happened.

That sounds like a good theory to me. And if the uncle knows about it, it may explain why he is angry with the Simogamos. There could be another reason, which I mention below.

I think she is in love with Yasaburo. It would explain why she keeps following him around even though the wedding was called off. And speaking of which, everybody knows Yasaburo has a think for Benten. I think that's why his uncle is so angry with him and why the wedding was called off to begin with. He'd blame it on the Simogamo's idiot blood. :)

Ep 8:



Now this was a beautifully done ep, the animation. the music, the story all just came together so well, had me emotional with the first half with Yachiro's confession

So I'll say this is the best ep so far in the show

looks like next ep we'll see or hear more about kaisei

That was really...somber. Somber, but very well done. Should be interesting to see what's up with Kaisei next episode.

So... quoting myself it seems my guess was right, simply a case where he can't transform while drunk. No sacrificing himself for his son unless they show more later.

Interesting to see someone who is so accepting of his life, his fate, of himself and of his sons who turned out just like him really. Again interesting because like the Japanese proverb about a frog in a well, the saying for "like father like son" in Japanese is that a frog's son is a frog too 蛙の子は蛙なのよね。 It is too bad as I don't think he would like to see Yajiro beating himself up over this, quitting as a tanuki and deciding to live as that proverbial frog in a well. Not what he would have wanted.

Ah well, I too look forward to seeing Kaisei.

The series is beautifully done. I rewatched today's episode but I am still thinking if, knowing what I know now, that it will need to be repeated? Will I want to watch the beautiful and sad moments again? Still unsure.

Lovely episode today. Looks like we are heading into another sort of mini-arc with the next episode.
