Tsukasa goes after a career goal and remembers some good times with Jun.
Well this was a pretty good episode overall. A bit more on the serious side than the last few episodes, but thatâ€™s alright I think. This one was centred on Tsukasa for a change of pace. Was a nice thing to flesh out the relationship of Jun with the rest of his friends especially those from the years before he was reunited with Minato. It seems like Tsukasa could give some more serious advice back then. Also just felt like there was a good history between them. Before the later days where she was more of a source of teasing rather than someone youâ€™d suspect to be a serious friend of Jun. Have to admit it was hilarious to watch them practice out moves similar to Sailor Moon back when they were kids.
A little bit of development on the romance side I suppose. Though thatâ€™s only if you can call Yuuhi being jealous and upset at Jun as development. At any rate Jun is at least including Yuuhi in his strange mental fantasy which is good for her chances. Though she wasnâ€™t alone and was included with the other girls. So right now she hasnâ€™t really made a ton of progress with Jun. But its still the situation where if anyone has a shot of getting together with the guy it is her. Will just have to wait and see if the series decides to give a decided finish or some kind of vague ending.
Regardless it really wasnâ€™t a bad episode. Decisions on the future arenâ€™t bad things to think about. Though I agree Yuuhi really doesnâ€™t need to fill out such a form. Jun may not need to either since if he gets together with Yuuhi heâ€™ll get some responsibilities in the large company. Found the board game they were playing kind of comical, in how it ending up pointing out the serious incidents in the series to this point. Marriage, attack by squid, giant robot falling apart, and finally a trip to hell. While that hasnâ€™t happened yet it doesnâ€™t seem like a positive thing for Jun. Though going to hell could mean marrying Yuuhi for all we know.
Also can’t believe I didn’t notice it earlier. But in the image selection you can pick out the Captain from Macross Frontier. I’m not one to normally make a big deal out of placing characters into series they don’t belong in. But honestly found it hilarious that he would actually be put there. Series can be fairly funny that’s for sure.
So will see what comes in the next episode. Looks like a birthday episode for Jun and more development on the romance front.
