Yozakura Quartet episode 5 ~ Ao’s much ado…

Nevermind that, why the heck are you in her bed? O.o

To be honest? This episode has to be the weakest one out of what we have seen so far…

Thoughts: And that is no joke. Apologies if this seems like a short thoughts entry but there really isn’t much to say for this episode. The story this time is basically focused on Ao’s ability to read other people’s thoughts and how for once in her life, she begins to worry whether or not that is a good ability to have. Of course, this simple story is also followed with a whole bunch of random fluff but for some reason this time it lacked impact and I was left yawning even before getting to the half way point.

She begins to wonder if her power is a good thing when she hurts the feeling of a young boy by mind haxxing into his thoughts. Naturally the little brat was freaked out because it was a secret that only he and his father shared so such a reaction from him is understandable. But when his wish was suddenly fulfilled right after achieving his goal to be able to kick up a ball for 20 times everything felt rather surreal. “As if life is that convenient”, I thought to myself and somewhat wanted to face palm. But with this being a supernatural anime series I guess anything could happen.

Other happenings in this episode:

*Akina trying to plea to the elders to save Gin. Too bad they don’t listen to the voice of friendship and it seems like they still want Enjin dead. The nun makes another appearance (YAY~~~~) and seems to know more than what I thought she would for a “minor character”. Does this mean that she will be appearing more often?

*Nun again having a little fight with Enjin. Definitely not enough to quench my thirst for some ass kicking action though but this much is better than nothing.

*Speaking of thirst, Kyousuke suddenly became the ideal drink for some chibi vampires.

*Kotoha and Ao sleep on the same bed (OMG!? O.o).

Something interesting happened at the very end of the episode (thankgod) and the revelation that Gin is indeed the brother of Ao…but I am sure most of you smart viewers probably saw this from miles away in the first place. But it is a cliffhanger end which is brought about by this sudden reunion. Come to think, how on earth did Ao manage to climb up the tree pillar in the first place? O.o

The preview is somewhat disappointing though. Nothing about Ao’s situation is shown which can be assumed that this reunion isn’t anything to jump for and perhaps Enjin would leave just as quickly as he appeared without anything happening. On the otherhand it seems like we will be getting to Kotoha’s story…and more unlimited machine gun works! 😀

I’m am surprised and happy that nun chan is getting more screentime and possibly a bigger role in the story that I thought

I really don’t think that Enjin is telling the viewers her name. From what I can see it is more of a symbol use of the word “kami sama” to retort to her words in the above screen cap, but that is just a wild guess from me

Sorry, but I found this scene hilarious for some reason XD

More deep talk blah, blah

So after losing to the brat, Ao decides to dig up more info on him…she is turning out to be quite the stalker

    Have to agree with some of your thoughts here. The reunion scene felt so forced I thought it was a trick or some kind of trap. Imagine my strange feeling at watching it being real.

    Though the talk was pretty average, it was kind of funny to have Akina pop up between Ao’s legs. Then of course getting his ass kicked before their conversation.

    “Sorry, but I found this scene hilarious for some reason XD” I didn’t really notice while watching, but as a screen cap it was hilarious.

    In Kyousuke’s defence it took 2 kids to take him down :). But still he’ll now learn to watch his wrists before making smart comments.

    I agree that this was the weakest episode yet. But I still enjoyed it. I like these glimpses into what daily life would be like if they didn’t have to fight off the invading youkai so often. Akina impressed me with his maturity in knowing that he should go have a talk with Ao. To be honest, Akina has impressed me throughout the series so far. But then, maybe I’m biased since Akina is my favorite character. 🙂

    @FlareKnight ~ Honestly? I think he would have been taken down even if it was just one kid :heh:
    Poor Kyousuke ^^

    @LKK ~ I agree, but he does seem void of all personality…it isn’t a bad thing but I do hope he does have some flaws other than being mr perfect (which is what he is at the moment).

    Awww …. but, but … I like perfect.

    @deathkillz ~ Nah I was just giving Kyousuke a little break :). Might have taken another minute but he could still have been taken down by one kid. Just goes to show watching youkai kids can be a bit of a trial.

    I like Akina enough. Has shown some weakness when it came to attacks against what he did with the tuning. Sure it all ended fine, but not like he didn’t fall back a bit. Guess we’ll see what flaws come up during the series.

    Akina isn’t as self-confident as he appears on the surface. It comes across better in the manga than in the anime. But we could see it in the anime scene where he’s hurt by Rin’s accusation that he’s a killer in episode 2. Her accusation reflected his own doubts about Tuning. Reading the manga, I get a sense that Akina is a young man who takes his responsiblities quite seriously but nevertheless is still a young man and not wholly sure of the best way to deal with those responsiblities. He hides it well, but he worries that he may not be making the best decisions.
