Apparently, Quetzalcoatl goes on a date with some boy. Of course, Himeno, Nozomi and Kyoko comes to spy on them.
In the first half, apparently Quetzalcoatl goes on a date with another boy. It’s perplexing since Quetzalcoatl can’t reproduce at all. Still, it’s funny how the government is spying on Quetzalcoatl. I wonder if it has to do with the incidents caused by the Antarcticans.
Either way, the date itself seems to be somewhat interesting. The boy eventually takes Quetzalcoatl to a contemporary art museum. The boy eventually talks about the history of art and what impact it has on society. They eventually go to a bookstore. I have to admit that Himeno’s and her friend’s reaction when it looks like Quetzalcoatl and the boy head to a love hotel is hilarious. The government spies panicked for a bit, but thankfully it didn’t happen.
I have to admit that while I am not an art person, modern/contemporary art is confusing. For instance, I don’t get why blank canvas is considered art. Nobody will understand, except the artist themselves. Either way, it seems that Himeno and her friends have no idea too.
Also, it seems that Tama and Omaki is there too having their arms linked. I thought that Omaki is Tama’s boyfriend. In the end, Omaki is actually a girl. It’s confusing given her short hair. More on that in the second half.
In the second half, we see a date from Tama’s point of view. She leaves her siblings at home to go on a date. As expected, her siblings became upset at her that she is going out on a date with a boy. The funny thing is that Omaki is actually a girl. The way she dresses and her short hair can easily trick anyone. Still, people seeing Tama and Omaki link arms and become shocked is funny.
They decided to go on a date to a contemporary art museum. In the first half, Himeno runs into Omaki. But of course, this is not the reason why Omaki and Tama wants to visit the museum. Omaki want to set the mood to discuss about Tama’s father art ambitions.
Despite the harsh criticism from past episodes Tama made towards her father about his art, there is a different side. She cares about his passion for art. Understandably, Omaki suggests that Tama’s father to do it as a hobby rather than for money. She thinks that Tama’s father can put more passion if he did it for fun.
Of course, Tama disagrees since it will be telling him that he can only do it for fun. In short, she wants him to do art his own away. I think it’s probably the best way to go even if he will face difficulties. After all, one should try to do a job that he or she will enjoy doing. It’s because it’s very likely one will do this job for the rest of his or her life.
Overall, I have to admit that it’s interesting that they showed the episode from two different point of views. It’s nice to see some light-hearted moments in between the world building. Like with real life, anything can happen at any time, good or bad. Still, it’s interesting to see that modern art in this show is just as confusing. ¶
