Saikano Episode 03


"Together, Alone"

I think this show could be at least eleven or thirteen times better if Chise's character wasn't so unsympathetic and wasn't so pathetic. It makes you wonder about Shuji, who basically has a girlfriend that he treats like a pet dog or something. (That's all the way down to the way he gives her food, pats her on the head, calls her "dummy", etc.)

I also find it odd that Shuji can't figure out what Chise is doing when she stands him up. I figure an invasion of Japan would be pretty newsworthy, and the destruction of a bunch of attacking forces in Osaka just might be on his radar.

Just as the story was beginning to annoy me, though, the hand of fate interjects! Enter Shuji's old flame! With Shuji already having problems figuring out his feelings for Chise, Fuyumi-sempai (his old middle school teacher, or something) only serves to mess him up more. But that's what I call entertainment!
