#3rd Epi Review : The Memorandum of Kyoko Okitegami/Okitegami Kyoko No Biboroku (aka Don’t Go Breaking My Heart)
I couldn’t if I tried…but I sorta did eeer.
Ouch. I mean, ouch. That was a tad harsh. It seems Yakusuke’s bad luck flares up in the worst kind of situations. But there is a glimmer of hope for our unconventional pair from some subtly things that took place in this week’s episode.
The case this time occurs at a gallery museum where Yakusuke (obvio) works as a security guard; one fine day, an angry old man walks in and destroy a piece of art for a seemingly unknown reason. Yakusuke gets fired because he failed to protect the picture but also the security company he worked for is forced to resign- thus, he asks for the help of his other half (lol) to shed light on what exactly happened. But like seriously, literally other half; this episode they were like apple and apple tree, must have shared 90% of the episode scenes together. And just when you see that the change in the intro involves Kyoko this time, fiddling with his clothes, you’re like “It’s on! Ship is ready to sail to the beautiful sea” the ending comes and well..yeah that.
Before I delve into that, I gotta say this episode was very outlined and it also provided for some unknown facts about paintings and most importantly frames. It was very nice to learn about all those little details and how much work and dedication a proper piece of art, in its entirety, takes.
SandGlass’ highlight person this week was Makuru who unfolded her angry talents with a punch even Rocky would be proud of!
About the ending scene, you gotta give credit to Yakusuke for finally admitting (well, not very out in the open but still) that he actually likes Kyoko. The way Kyoko landed him was a bit rough (“pass, pass PASS!”) but just before that happened, when Yakusuke took the responsibility of not wanting to be reinstated in the museum as he did fail to protect the painting, Kyoko was looking at him in a concerned, tender way (yep, that is the glimmer of hope I mentioned above.) So it might not be that she doesn’t like him per se, but the situation she’s in is not ideal and for now she is content “with a little adventure and a bit of money” as she said. When Yakusuke asks if that means she’s not lonely her words were clear but her expression said otherwise.
It does make me wonder how much longer will that continue though, I mean, it is one step forward and five steps back. Next episode Kyoko will have forgotten all about it and that’s it. Unless we’re shown some sort of reflex-heart-memory soon. I mean something like that will have to happen at some point right?
Till then, onwards to episode 4!
p.s look at these dorks, aren’t they adorable? How can you not like them together?
