Tamayura: Hitotose – Episode 10

Fu, Norie, and Maon realize that Kaoru hasn’t been acting like herself after being overly disappointed that they were all busy that weekend and later by turning all of their requests for Kaoru to join them on their particular outings. Norie finally confronts Kaoru about it but Kaoru just says there isn’t anything they can do. Finally, on the Sunday everyone is supposedly busy, Sayomi makes Kaoru come to the cafe, where everyone is waiting, still worried about her. Kaoru explains that she’s unsure of what she wants to do and doesn’t know if her potpourri hobby is something she could do much with. However, Fu and friends tell her that they’ve had doubts about their hobbies too. Finally, Kaoru suggests they hold an exhibition of their talents together.

We finally get a Kaoru-centric episode. I’m not really sure if we had really gotten one yet, which is strange since she’s really the center of the group. In any case, I thought this was another good episode. It’s nice to be able to learn more about Kaoru as, I just noted, she is really the one person of the group that we didn’t really know all that much about.

As far as the exhibition, I would expect us to see it before the season is over. Since it’s supposed to take place on the next to last day of the year in the series, probably seeing it in the last episode as a way to close out the series would be my guess. And that would be a pretty good way to go out I think as well.

Working'!! – Episode 10

Mahiru has more guy trouble, as Jun gets trapped in the break room with Mahiru and barely escapes. Meanwhile, Souta has to protect her from some falling boxes, which makes her so flustered that she has to take a nap in the break room. Souta pets her head while she’s sleeping, but she wakes up, which shocks her to the point of needing to go home and stay in bed. So Souta goes and visits her at home in the only way he can: by becoming Kotori.

It’s nice to have another Mahiru episode, this one getting nice and steamy with Souta getting as far as being able to touch Mahiru’s head, albeit when she’s asleep. However, it seems that Mahiru’s mother has perhaps figured out that Kotori is actually a boy in disguise.

Otherwise, this was another reasonable episode. The Poplar getting locked in the freezer gag was cheap but it was funny. I think the only reason they did the Aoi wanting a cell phone bit was to just set that up. Otherwise it was pretty much all Mahiru and Souta, though it’s rare and funny to see Jun having to face off with Mahiru. Usually the only one who faces certain death at her hand other than Souta is Hiroomi.
