I didn’t know what to expect from this show when I started watching and now we’re on episode three and I especially don’t know what to expect any more.
The revelation that he was actually her dad though seemed out of place, like it should have been later on in the series. I mean it’s clear now that it couldn’t be but at the time it seemed like such an important thing was being brought up too early.
So now that one of the characters I (and everybody?) assumed to be one of the mains is gone and Ai seems to be moving on to somewhere new. I had hoped there would be a timeskip and she’d be in school or something because of the OP but it looks like that isn’t the case. Of course, none of the girls could pass as an older Ai but he also was looking for Hana with black hair and hey, she didn’t soooo?? Well, that doesn’t seem to be the case anyways since characters from the OP appear in the preview but not along side loli Ai so hey who knows.
The ED song is fantastic and I love it. I really cannot get enough of it. So that wonderful song accompanied by Hampnie bonding with his daughter as they make their way back to the village seemed really sweet. On the other hand, it also made Ai burying her father and breaking down crying just as the chorus starts to be even sadder and even more powerful. If, for some reason, he actually came back later (as I heard people speculating he might) it would ruin such a great scene for me. Right now, it’s that scene being so good that’s keeping me holding on to this show.
Though I kind of like watching a show I know nothing about continue to surprise me and have me ask questions. I at least now understand what it means to be dead when for a while I was confused about what it mean to be alive. It wasn’t that clear until they explained it for the fifth time.
I am worried the new characters from here on out will be as dull as they look but hey Scar looked boring and she turned out to be a pretty cool guy.
