Hanasaku Iroha Ep 10: “Slight Fever” my ass!
Ohana gets sick with a terrible fever, but despite that she is determined to continue working. However everyone forces and makes sure she says in bed, and care for her well being. In the mean time, Ohana starts to feel that she is not needed.
(Oki will have the previous episodes updated later today or tomorrow, in the mean time here’s episode ten!)
Wow this was quite an emotional episode. I must say I scoffed at the title because I was like ,”Slight fever? Are you kidding me? She can’t even stand up!!!”
Ohana loves Kissuiso so much that she wants to put all her effort and time into it. It’s a home where she is respected, appreciated and loved. One of the key things that made me happy is that her grandmother stopped by to check up on her. I also knew the minute Nako said “they’d be fine without her” would lead to a huge misunderstanding. I’m very happy that Minko cleared up the misunderstanding, and absolutely loved her imagination of drawing on Ohana’s face – that would have been hilarious, but if she did, she probably would be in deep trouble with the grandmother.
Another interesting thing that happened this episode is that Minko is now very conscious that Tooru has some feelings towards Ohana, and he is growing more aware of it as he becomes more flustered. Surely that’s where the love triangle comes in where it’s between Ko and Tooru. Speaking of Ko, if we go back to the last episode, it’s hinted that he may be starting another relationship, precisely with his co-workers. Morevoer, the preview has Ohana in a very distressed situation, she’s crying out to Ko for help and at this point of time, I think this will be the first time he doesn’t show up to help her or give her any support when she needs it the most.
While I’m still on the preview topic, looks like Ohana is going to be visiting her mother (or it could be the other way around). That alone can’t be good news whatsoever. If her mother declares that she should/must move back in with her, without a doubt Ohana will most definitely want to choose Kissuiso over her mother who never (as I said in the above) given her the support and proper love that she really needs.
One last thing I wanted to point out. In the past episodes we’ve been told about the festival that will be taking place in the future. The shrine played a role in Ohana’s dream and in that dream, we saw this little girl beside the fox. There was a considerate amount of focus on this child (who I think is a spirit), and I am curious about what she represents or ‘who’ she is.
Finally last but not least, WOULD SOMEONE FREAKING KICK TAKAKO OUT ALREADY?! SHE PISSES ME OFF. MANAGER PRO MY ASS. GO AND WORK IN A SHOWCASE INDUSTRY, YOU’D PROBABLY DO BETTER THERE ANYWAYS.
PS: LMAO, I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT TAROU WROTE AN ERORIC STORY BASED ON THE MANAGER!!! HE HAS NO SHAME!!!
