Blue Seed: Lost & Trembling on a Trip to Michinoku
We learn quite a lot about Kaede, and she truly is the opposite of Momiji in every single way, with everyone talking about how smart, beautiful and graceful she is… while Momiji can be ‘a klutz and exasperating’, she isn’t as smart as her sister, doesn’t think she’s as beautiful… and this shakes Momiji’s confidence to the core quite a bit, to where its Matsudaira telling her to just be herself and stop trying to compete in ways you can’t, but to compete in was you can.
The was a lot of comedy in this episode with Koume and Yaegashi, and you can tell she’s sweet on him… probably because she’s more of a guy than he is personality wise. Still it’s amazing Yaegashi wasn’t hung over the hell the next day with how much drink Koume forced down his throat. The construction foreman ‘eagerness’ to get the job done and having to deal with things beyond his control and his building being demolish is over the top funny. Sakura Yamazaki pops up in this episode as well, and is certainly in that ‘effective’ comedy relief role, particularly with her ego and complaining about Momiji stealing her spotlight.
