Sakamichi no Apollon Episode 5

Well, Kaoru’s love thing sure ended quickly. This week’s episode starts off with rejection, then ends with acceptance. I’m kinda glad, though, that they didn’t decide to drag on the confession thing with Ritsuko, but I’m really lost as to where it will go. Will Ritsuko be free now to pursue an ending with Sentarou? Or will Kaoru somehow find a way to get back in the equation? Yurika hopping off with Jun looks like a pretty certain thing, so it’s up to the main three…someone gets left out or they all get friend zoned.

To be honest, I was a bit worried Kaoru might do the Tetsurou thing from Ano Natsu and just tell Sentarou how Ritsuko feels about him to force something to happen. Although it’s still possible, I don’t really see Kaoru as being that kind of person…or is he? I thought the bit with Kaoru’s mother was pretty nice…I was expecting something weird, but she turns out to be pretty normal. Also, it was a step away from the normal tearful reunions where they run into each others’ arms. I definitely look forward to seeing more of this show…it’s pretty interesting.

  1. It’s true that there wasn’t a tearful hug scene, but Sakamichi does an astonishing job of expressing subtle emotions. The animations where Kaoru is trying not to cry, for example, or as he was about to walk away from meeting his mother. Also, the animation this episode seemed particularly smooth, or maybe it’s me.

    I wonder what Sentarou’s pigeon would think of Kaoru’s music choice~


    1. I was fine with them getting away from the tearful hug thing…I think it’s a good idea.

      That pigeon is gonna do something awesome…I just feel it
