Kujo is invited on a summer trip and receives a package from home.
I’ll say Victorique did herself some justice by the end of the episode. It’s tough to find a really good way to cheer up Kujo when he has some reasons to feel a bit down. He doesn’t have the aggressive personality or bulk of his brother or father. Also anyone who’s watched the series knows Kujo is hardly a genius. He can be given credit for how well he’s fought in life or death situations so far, but with his constant “ehhhh” you really can’t give him credit for his brain. Not that Kujo isn’t a good guy and that’s one of his important qualities. He stood and protected Victorique when their lives were on the line. Also in reality Victorique has a good point. There are always going to be people better than you at something. No one is perfect in every possible thing. Victorique is a genius, but no one would call her all round skilled. Instead of looking for people who are better than you the important thing is to focus on what you are good at and appreciate those things.
Poor Avril; I mean she is kind enough to offer Kujo a vacation from that school and it says something that she invited him specifically. Instead he changes his mind at the last possible moment not giving her a chance to invite anyone else so she has to go alone. I understand not liking the idea of leaving Victorique alone, but it wasn’t like he was going to stay forever. He could have gone for a while and cut the trip a bit short by going back alone. In reality unless he has decided right now to marry Victorique they aren’t going to be sticking together forever. There is no harm in a small trip. Considering that he probably can’t afford to really go home with the distance to Japan there will be time to spend with Victorique. I’m not saying it wasn’t a nice surprise for Victorique for him to show up, but just that it’s too bad for Avril that he did.
Anyways some cute moments in the episode. Victorique’s reaction to Kujo coming back was great along with how she gave the candy a special place. Of course can’t forget her dressing up and trying to bring tea. It’s too bad that she isn’t the most physical to begin with and the outfit was hindering her. Was funny to see her besting Kujo’s brother so badly. Though to be fair the guy is just smart and not some super genius.
I did like some focus being given to Kujo’s past and family situation. Was good to point out how he was just running away from his family. His brothers might have been proud, but I wonder how his family overall saw his move? His sister looked sad though it might have been just missing him. Considering how close he was with his sister and mother they could have realized that he was just running. At least that running has lead to something good for Kujo. Meeting and being able to protect Victorique has changed his mindset. I’m sure both Kujo and Victorique will continue to change each other as the series continues on.
Not a bad episode, though I’m looking forward to the next serious situation these two get into.
