Natsuyuki Rendezvous Episode 3

Hmm…so apparently Atsushi can affect the physical world around him to some extent. I assume that this adds a sort of “goal” for the show (Hazuki takes advantage of this interaction to get Atsushi to pass or something). Well, so far I guess I’d say that I’m liking that the characters in the show don’t seem oblivious. Rokka and Hazuki both seem to get the feeling that the other is interested, and Hazuki especially attempts to act on this. Sad that this is a seemingly novel concept.

Also, am I the only one wondering whether Atsushi’s limited connection to the physical world was in some way a factor of Rokka’s cold? I’m just going off the conversation between Miho and Hazuki where it is mentioned that Rokka rarely gets so sick. Just wild speculation, to be honest. Finally, I’m not so sure what to make of the last line of the episode. Should I take it face value, interpreting it as Rokka continually being unable to get over Atsushi? Or is the apology meant to say something else? If it’s a simple rejection, then I’m gonna need to find a GG button.

  1. It might just be speculation but it’s an interesting idea to think that Atsushi could cause a cold or even a worse illness. What shocked me most was that he went from being unable to interact with anything to being able to cause minor earthquakes in the space of twenty minutes. I guess it’s linked to his emotional state or something of that nature.


    1. I guess it means he was able to do it all along, but just didn’t realize it. I’m not sure how much I like the idea that he suddenly knows that he can possess a body.


  2. Well, it’s a bit idiot on Hazuki’s part to invite Rokka to the amusement park where she used to go with her deceased husband… of course she will start to cry! And Atsuhi just reacted like a spoiled brat in this episode.
