His and Her Circumstances episodes 3-4 review
“Would you say that Adams is a pretty unlucky fellow?” – The Thin Blue Line
These episodes were great. Episode 3 looked into Arima’s past, how he was abused as a child and how that affects him now. No, I don’t mean that his being abused was great, I just mean that the episode was great because it showed a side of him that we hadn’t seen yet.
Episode 4 where Yukino spends a half hour and in reality a whole week trying to confess to Arima, well, it’s even better. I know exactly how she feels. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an anime find a way to make something like a love confession be so funny yet feel so real. Clearly, Kare Kano is a keeper, and it makes me wonder why I haven’t watched it sooner.
Episode 3 rating (out of four stars): ***
Episode 4 rating: ****
