Ookami-san and Her Seven Companions episode six

Wow, we’re already at the half-way point in this season!  With this comes an important announcement, although it was somewhat to be expected – next season I am only taking one series up for blogging as my schedule limits me from doing so else.  For the winter, I’ll probably be doing my hustling and bustling with ten series at once but for the 2010 fall season, I’m planning to only do one.  What does this mean?  I don’t know, but it doesn’t detract my interest from blogging – I’m only doing this for a break in typing, screen-capping, and the like.

Of course, that doesn’t mean you can go off waltzing like Ryouko does with her problem (wow, that was a bad transition) nor can you start off with another seemingly meaningless episode without a fairy tale theme.  Actually, the episode wasn’t meaningless as it was basically how Ringo and Ryouko became good friends.  As we know after that whole incident, Ryouko moved schools and became to display hatred towards men.  Luckily, it was our own little Ringo who extended her hand of friendship to become the best friend that Ryouko ever had.

I could argue that the fairy tale incorporation in this episode was literally having Ryoushi and Ringo meet in a cafe called “Fairy Tale”, but it’s nice to see that Ringo does have more than one set of clothes that she wears (and she wore that black thing the entire episode! not bad), but it’s also nice to see Ryoushi wear a darker color for the change.  Man up, sir!  But it seems that the whole episode will focus on just how Ryoushi and Ryouko met up so let’s skip to the thoughts.  (Basically, Ringo ends up taming the ‘Taiga’ (Toradora slip) and admitting that both of them had their past share of problems, and how it’s best to just get along to support each other).

Yeah, touching episode on two female friends, but did it really deserve the entire 24 minutes?  I mean, Ryoushi’s confession took less than 30 seconds (beat that, Junichi) but Ringo giving a cliche speech about letting the past go takes five minutes?   We need a lot of work on time distribution, but we can’t help the themes that our anime is trying to incorporate, especially after non-stop action episodes up til now.  It’ll be interesting to see Ryouko’s reaction to Ryoushi’s sudden change of manhood in the coming episodes, but what can we expect from our evil white-haired villain?

    Not enough happened this episode, but other than that it was a good episode. I hope this series does not degrade too much by the end. It’s nice to see a series where a guy is a wimp, but a different type of wimp. The average wimp is too scared to confess. Even though Ryoushi often runs in a fight, it’s good to see that he doesn’t run from his feelings.
