Sakamichi no Apollon Episode 4

More love polygon action going on this week. Yeesh…there’s a lot of teen drama. Okay…where to start? Like a boss, Kaoru kisses Ritsuko, but she ends up running off. Poor guy…At least he gets a better understanding of Sentarou, who turns out to be just as uncomfortable at home as Kaoru is (bromance engage?). Meanwhile, Jun goes to work too, stealing Yurika’s affections with his calm problem-solving and maturity.

Based on what I’ve seen so far, it’s starting to look more likely that Sentarou ends up with Ritsuko or something. Yurika’s not central enough of a character…I find it likely that she’ll be with Jun in the end…especially after seeing how much more innocent that scene with Sentarou was than what Kaoru first thought.

Of course, another option is that Sentarou, Kaoru, and Ritsuko just have their trio of friends ending…that could work. Another part of the episode was that the jazz becomes a tad more central…with the first gig and everything. We finally get to hear them play…I mean like really play. The random English made sense…and it didn’t actually sound too slurred. Even when Jun was saying/singing it. So the romances becoming slightly more clear and the music coming out more…wonder what happens next.

  1. I felt that kiss A bit too rushed and desperate move from him. Oh well I wonder how things will pan out. Sentaros past is really sad didnt expect that, but Im surprised that the way the grandmother died was a tad exagerated compared to the manga. Also that Jazz session was awesome, love brothers Jun singer, expressed like Yurika! who I think she falls for him, wonder how Sentaro will think about that :/


    1. hmm…I might agree that the kiss was a bit too desperate, but it gave him the answer he really needed. If he kept going wishy-washy, nothing would come of it.
