Every time she opens her mouth I want to scream at her.
It’s like we’re listening to a saint who has already accumulated all the wisdom of this world and reached Nirvana. But everything she says is completely inane.
It looks like Sawa might never achieve her dream again. “Maybe you should take a step back.” And Sawa rightfully explodes at her. Then Wakana tells Sawa a non-sequitur about how she got back into music because of her mother, and the problem is resolved.
Later, she tells the vice principal about feelings. I wanted to barf.
The only thing Wakana did this episode that didn’t make me want to punch her in the face was prank call the vice principal. Good work!
On the bright side, seeing Sawa explode at the choir club was quite satisfying. She should get angry more often! Being happy all the time is boring.
Plus we have some yuri!
I also appreciated how they dealt with Sawa’s father. I thought they would do something like having them both apologize and make up in a heartfelt reunion. But no, Sawa’s dad was supporting her all along. This phone call was the only part in the series so far where I’ll confess to having been a bit touched.
But did we need to end with yet another rush to not be late for the performance? I feel like we’ve seen this before. Just replace the bus with a horse. Can Tari Tari not come up with any more compelling conflicts than transportation delays?
