It seems that the hot summer day boogeyman is keeping everyone away, until Tamako intervenes!
Believe it or not, it’s kind of ironic that most people wouldn’t go out at all during a hot and summer day. Of course, most of them would be at the pool or at home enjoying air conditioning. This makes me wonder why the market place doesn’t have fans hanging from their ceilings in the first place as not all the stops are out in the open. Aside from that, Tamako as expected intervenes and decides to have a haunted house to attract visitors.
As for the haunted house, I don’t find it all that scary, but cute instead. While they manage to scare Tamako’s teacher real badly, it seems that people enjoyed it that they even hang out in the market place, which is a plus. However, there is one thing that I find silly and it’s the shop owners thinking that the market is haunted. While some might have experienced this before, they actually did something without realizing it and then assume it’s haunted. Even so, I think Kana making Dera to do her dirty work with a can of paint that unintentionally poured on an office worker is kind of cruel. It is a good promotional tactic that worked well, but there is no end to the abuse Dera experiences.
From the look of the last scene before the ending theme, it seems that a mysterious brown-skinned girl has finally arrived. What is her reason of coming? Maybe it’s because Dera is not making any progress and instead eating lots of sweets. Whatever the reason may be, I’m curious on how this girl will turn out when she officially appears. ¶
