Sorry about that long delay… Since the subs got delayed for the past two weeks due to some extraordinary circumstances, I had to put this show off and watch some of my backlog. Gratefully, episodes 8 and 9 were finally released today, so I’m confident that I will get caught up by Monday.
As for this episode, Azusa getting lost and a group of bodyguards chasing after her was a fun experience. All of this happened with her wearing a nice-looking wedding dress.
Azusa has always been one of my favorite girls besides Chihaya out of 765 Productions since she is pretty and has a nice personality. In episode 6, she changed her hair into a short bob to signal a new phase of her career. This change has caused some people in the anime blogosphere to criticize her new hairstyle. Even though I liked her long hair, she still looked considerably cute with her new appearance. Through the photo-shoot for a wedding magazine, her beauty shines. It’s obvious that she wants to get married someday from her liking of wearing a dress and desires to find someone special. Her tendency to lose direction with the bodyguards “kidnapping” her caused Makoto and the Producer to go on a wild goose chase.
Throughout her separation from the group, she displayed her kindness and brought a lot of cheer to the people. Besides finding the girl who dropped her wedding ring, she helps a grandmother, two children and a fortuneteller to name a few. In addition, she brought a runaway bride and the so-called “Oil Baron” together to propose. Her courtesy and mature personality is one of her strong points that make her a pleasing woman. Sure you can get the prettiest girl out there, but she might be manipulative or spoiled. In a way, the haircut has allowed her to show what she really is and everyone admires her for this.
Although Azusa has ruined her chances of getting hitched, it was a worthwhile sacrifice for her to take. Through her wondering, her and Ryuuguu Komachi’s popularity has grown tremendously. Hopefully, she will meet a nice guy to become her husband someday. On the other hand, Makoto brought amazing fights when she chases down the bodyguards that generated a lot of attention. Also, Miki was cute too, but didn’t contribute much besides taking several poses for the magazine. So pretty much Azusa’s exploration of the whole city had brought a myriad of fun that I enjoyed. ¶
