Ushio-chan is so cute that I couldn’t hold myself skipping 10 episodes.
… so I went ahead.
Tomoya after the aftermath of Nagisa’s death starts becoming like his father and becoming depressed. He starts to smoke, drink, and gamble his money to ease up on the tragic event. He felt that dating, marrying, and having a child with Nagisa was a mistake until one day…
Meanwhile in the Illusionary World, The doll still building an airship during winter and a girl tries to comfort the garbage doll.
Back in the real world, Sanae-san visits Tomoya and asks to go out on a date. The city itself changed tremendously in the last 5 years.
They meet at the family restaurant and Sanae asks Tomoya to go on a trip with them. Tomoya said that he hasn’t decided yet. When he got home, he get asked many times to go on the trip. Finally he gives in to them.
Tomoya arrives at Fukukawa’s home and saw that Sanae and Akio weren’t around. He found a note and it say that something important came up and they have to go out. He notices that Ushio was still in the house and doesn’t know where Sanae and Akio went.
Meanwhile, Tomoya was smoking and not knowing what to do with Ushio, which he left for Sanae and Akio to raise after the tragic event with Nagisa, Ushio was playing alone until…
… she broke her toy turtle when she fell. She picks up the pieces that broke and handed it to Tomoya to fix.
He finally fixes the toy with some super glue tells Ushio not to play with it until it dried, but with children, they won’t listen and do it anyways. Ushio comes back, wakes up Tomoya and tells him that the wheels are stuck. After looking at the wheels on the toy, Tomoya says that it can’t be fixed anymore and asks Ushio to throw away the toy. Instantly, she grabs it back and shook her head. Afterward, he said he was joking around with her.
Then she asks where Sanae and Akio went again. Tomoya becomes hungry and then have to go out and buy food. He ran into Isogai, Sanae’s and Akio’s neighbor and said how lonely it must be for Ushio not to be able to see her father. Tomoya decided to cook fried rice for lunch and…
… Ushio refused to eat it after one bite because it was bitter. Tomoya then made white rice and after putting it down, she shoves the dish of fried rice towards Tomoya, starts putting seasoning on her rice and started eating. Sanae and Akio didn’t return that night, so Tomoya stayed over. The next morning, they had nothing to do. Ushio asks Tomoya to go to the bathroom and then she brags about it after she used it on her own. Tomoya then decides to go on the trip with her without Sanae and Akio.
Thank god it’s not just one episode of Tomoya being depressed all episode long because it would disinterest me. Basically, this episode is about warming up to his child again.
Thinking of which, Ushio does look alot like a mini version of Nagisa and is so adorable. Also, she does look alot like the girl in the illusionary world (well duh….)
On a side note, the anteater from Kanon makes it debut again…
Looks Familiar, right?
Overall, this episode gets a 9/10!
