Ai Yori Aoshi Episode 03

Ai Yori Aoshi

"Separation"

In the grand tradition in this sort of show, one of the early female characters must be introduced during the most awkward moment possible.

This is sort of a fast-forward episode in terms of the levels of relationship between Aoi and Kaoru that go by. Technically it doesn't take very long, but let's say it tosses what could have been a few episodes worth of show out of the way. I've been watching enough slow shows lately, so I'm not exactly complaining. My only real problem is that it's kind of hard to believe, but hey, I guess people get mail order brides every day, and it probably works similarly (if a little more creepily).

We learn a little bit more about Kaoru's backstory, and that's about the extent of character development. Right now, this series is the very definition of average.
