It seems that Isuzu is a bit too demanding to the point where the cast members start to dislike her. I wonder why she acts this way.
At a glance, it seems that Seiya is doing a fine job in up keeping the park given how bad shape it was along with the limited budget. While I find Isuzu’s pointing the musket at others rather funny when it’s lighthearted fun, threatening people to have them follow your demands is not okay. The only thing it will do is cause people to distrust her and make them more rebellious. Even so, this can explain why the park was in terrible shape when she was acting manager. It only took Seiya with the help of the Elemental Fairies to see what she has been doing for years.
Although Seiya calling Isuzu deadweight is uncalled for, I’m glad that there was a big rainstorm to show that she can actually get things done without demanding things with her musket. Apparently, Seiya screwed up and shut down one of the pumps that needed repair, leaving the park vulnerable to flooding. After Isuzu directed the cast members at strategic points to help to prevent further flooding damage while pumping the water out in critical areas, she manages to advert a crisis.
To me, while it’s obvious that Isuzu can cooperate with others without resorting to her musket on order to get something done, it seems that her upbringing has caused her to behave this way. I don’t blame her at all considering the pressure she received in order to live up to her family name. Quite interestingly, it seems that she has a lot in common with Seiya as he was in a similar situation when he realized his fear for heights after going on the ferris wheel. He was afraid of his fans and family looking down at him because of it, so he simply quit.
Even so, it’s quite surprising that Latifa does not remember that Seiya was afraid of heights nor what happen years ago. Perhaps the memory was so depressing that she completely forgot about it. Aside from that, it seems that Seiya and the cast members will have to deal with a dragon that just woke up next time.
