Sakamichi no Apollon 03 – And we’re only three episodes in
If this were any other series, this probably would’ve been the penultimate episode. With this and Mysterious Girlfriend X, ‘tis a great season for romance.
The confession scene here was great. It felt very natural and in character. Sentarou, oh my god. I kind of melted into a fangirl puddle. Despite the fact that Sentarou and Kaoru are the bad boy-nerd duo, they have such excellent characterization and chemistry that it doesn’t matter.
Someday my prince will come
Instead of Snow White, I was seeing much more of the Little Mermaid here. Not so much the Disney version, though. I’m referring to the original Hans Christian Anderson tale. Ritsuko is the Little Mermaid, Sentarou is the prince who is blind to the feelings of the girl who has always been there, and Yurika plays the role of the girl whom the prince takes a greater interest in. (Poor Kaoru doesn’t have a part in the story.)
