Since there is no subtitle version, here's the summary of the story:


Actually, if you are watching it on Netflix you can add the subtitles yourself but opening the Que for subtitles within Netflix.
Subtitles can easily be added within the Netflix system.


Kemurikusa is on Neflix and you can add custom subtitle to it?
Netflix pissed me off big time last year so I unsubscribed it. I am watching it on Amazon right now. LOL

Anyway, the ones that I said have no subtitles are six 90 seconds episodes posted by Tatsuki (the director) on his personal twitter before the series on air in Japan.


You can get those shorts with english subtitles. It was a while back so I'm not completely sure where I got the files but I think it was a link off his twitter. Anyway once you download then start playing the clip you need to go into the audio and subtitles menu and manually select the correct subtitle file that came packed in the zip with the the video files, Just pick the file that matches the current clip you are playing. It worked fine for me once I figured it out.

One thing I haven't seen many people touch on is that in addition to each of the sisters having a sense they specialize in each also has a unique passion or drive they find joy and purpose in with the exception of Rin. You can tell when one of the girl's either speaks of or experiences something related to her unique passion because she will always be surrounded by sparkles for a moment when she does so.

Ah...then I can't help you there, and I was wrong, it is not being shown on Netflix only Amazon, but you can still add the subtitles to them on Amazon as well.
I think it goes by the native language you already set up when you initialize with Amazon, same with Netflix, If you are watching it on your phone, there is a little box on the upper right corner that is square when you pause it. Tap on that and the subtitle screen comes up.

If you are watching it on a different device like PS3 or 4 there is a way to change that also.

But yeah, it's not on Netfix, my mistake!

The music really works for this. I also liked how we got multiple reveals this episode, but they weren't stressed as reveals. Which is how the kids themselves would take it: oh, that's a thing.

Episode 7

Wakaba is finally free from Midori! I really like how Rin is getting emotional after finding out the haven is not as safe as it seems. Rina-tachi are cute as always.

I agree with this. It is not a big Ah-ha moment, but things are being reveal at a smooth pace. At the same time more questions arise after these reveals.

So now we have three kinds of bug:

1. Red bug - Aggressive
2. Blue bug - Territorial
3. White bug - Friendly to human

And white bug seems to be able to pass through the wall without any problem. Or at least the one communicates with Wakaba can.

Took 6 & 7 together and it was really cool. Except for Wakaba suddenly ceasing to ask questions when told, "Don't tell my sisters about meeting me" or some such line. Really Wakaba? I don't think she would have thrown more leafning bolts at you for asking a reason why she's abandoning her sisters. Oh, well... The show has still been interesting. It's probably as Kiratachibana said and part of their mission.

The show also answered my question on Wakaba's ability with kemurikusa. He's got the not so magical touch of finer movements to respond to stimuli from the leaves I think. Just like Ritsu can manage. That must have been the best back scratch ever because it's really proving to open new doors for him.

Another peculiarity with the leaflings seems to be a total absence of fear. Now they clearly have a sense of loss. They're sad for their sisters. They have a sense of danger as they're not fools, but that doesn't slow them down for a moment. Nanananot even one!


Which comes in sharp contrast to Wakaba. "If we die, we die." Says Ritsu with a smile on her face.
I am kind of excited to see just how strong she and her Midori might be next week though.

Give it a go. Don't let the CGI and MAL score deceive you. I haven't watched Land of the Lustrous, but I can recommend you this. The mistery and adventure is really good and gets me hyped to watch it every week. Not to mention the OP is sang by nano and the ED is produced by Yuuyu using Hatsune Miku vocals. So freaking good.
You reminded me I need to watch Land of the Lustrous. So many anime too little time.

Ah awesome, thanks for the heads up, and nah the CGI looks like it was chosen for this and the plot looked ambiguous enough to be comparable to Lustrous so thinking it might be along the same vein. Which it does sound like if theres mystery. Ill def give this a go.

Yeah, I'm really curious about that too, and if we'll ever meet the other "dead" sister. I'd like to believe, for whatever reason, that it was something as simple as the growing water shortage, but it could also be that she is wanted to try and solve some greater mystery that the others didn't really show any interest in. The main group really doesn't seem to care much about anything other than water (the comment about not looking in the train station/house because there wasn't any water in there). My third thought is that they were pulling an Obi-wan and that they know the other two are not really dead, and simply had a falling out, but that seems almost too depressing.

I'm wondering how the group would react if the two sisters they thought were killed suddenly showed up.

Either way I'm glad they finally started providing some lore on the world, if only just a little.

I can understand the falling out idea when one side wants to help the other anonymously, but Rin's crew speaks of them with sorrow and wishfulness. I don't remember them ever talking negatively about the lost. I'm mostly certain it has to do the mission written and redacted so that Rin's crew can try to enjoy a happier life. I mentioned their water single-mindedness, but their focus on family has always been a greater concern. That likely works for both sides here and it's just ignorance of a greater help to each other that keeps Rin's side so simplistic. I think my biggest question right now is how Riku returned.

We've been getting lore throughout. It has mostly just come in narrative elements like traveling concerns and action sequences. I can appreciate that it's waited on an info dump until a point that it's satisfying and happening... organically.

Episode 8

More white bugs appear, but they are at the end of their lives. They decided to help Wakaba before leaving this world. This is probably the saddest scene so far.

More lore appears as Wakaba continues to read the information in the Yellow Kemurikusa.

And Rin, finally treat Wakaba as part of the group instead of possible threat.


By the way, there is a new TVCM by Donbei cup noodles with Kemurikusa characters.

Oh man, all the little beeps! And they combined to form DEEP BEEP. I bet they're fun to voice.

I think what's great about Kemurikusa is that it's earnest. It can't do everything, but what it can do it does well. Kinda like the characters.

The music continues to be good; I particularly like the battle/tense theme (which played while DEEP BEEP cut the root).

Anime has a funny way of making music grow on me. At first I was snickering at the opening and now I'm "Finding my life in the Kemurikusa!" a little more enjoyable each time. I feel a little cheated that I didn't get to see Ritsu/Midori go smash some bugs and instead the show skips right to just making me concerned.

Still, this episode certainly had character. From Rinaji getting jealous of Wakaba's compliments for Shiro(white bug) to Wakaba's awkward attempts to get his paws on Rin's leaf, there were so many fun interactions this time. Everyone got some highlights, but it was the extras that stole the episode.


Did these robots with obvious antennas just nuzzle to exchange information?

How cute! ...no, seriously. Somehow it got me. Maybe the little one wasn't quite ready to transmit by distance. Maybe the tactile response is somehow comforting. In any case this part and others like chiding Rin went a long way to personifying these little guys for what's coming. I do appreciate how Shiro's console seems to be developed with kemurikusa in mind.
Alright, Nuzzlebots! Transform and roll out!


Oh, *BEEP*. I'm not going to tear up over these *BEEP*ing bots given purpose. I refuse. ...I mean it. Not only did they manage to make these bots sentimental, they brought our group closer together over their run. Good job, Kemurikusa.

I think we found how Wakaba was no longer starving to death. He even found yolk-like kemurikusa to top it with? Really? So how much lore am I supposed to take from this commercial? Are Rina-tachi going to develop a taste for heating and seasoning their metallic munchies now?

To keep in the spirit of things, sometimes you've got to... you've got to DEEP BEEP. I couldn't help myself.
