As it turns out.. I’m not going to have time to post any sort of in-depth synopsis for this episode or for FMP. I’m house sitting for a friend of mine until Monday, and I have a million things to do between now and the time my flight to Europe leaves on Tuesday.
So, in short, I have to say that one of the things that draws me to Suzuka is how realistic the characters are. Our core group is not at all over the top. They respond in ways that normal people like you and me would, and it’s definitely not boring. I really want to know why Suzuka seems to want to hold any feelings she might have for Yamato in check. There were multiple times in this episode when she seemed on the verge of admitting that she likes him, even if only to herself, but then at the last second she pulls back and ends up making some rude remark to him as a result of her internal conflict.
I also enjoy how Hattori isn’t *just* a player. He’s actually quite wise, which I think balances out Yamato’s naiveté when it comes to the opposite sex.
So, yeah. Suzuka rocks. I gotta give Mentar all the credit for recommending and getting me so excited about this show.
