After Yuna defeated the Kraken, it seems that Fina is feeling a bit lonely. Is Yuna neglecting her?
At last, Yuna defeated the Kraken and everyone in the town is celebrating. Ans finally makes the Japanese style dinner that Yuna is yearning for with sashimi, tempura, grilled fish, and other dishes. Apparently, she enjoyed it so much that she wants Ans to open a restaurant in Crimonia. While Ans feels anxious about this, Yuna gives her the offer that she can’t refuse.
When Yuna came back, it seems that Fina wanted to spend time with her. Sadly, it seems that Yuna has more ambitious goals of connecting the sea town with Crimonia. Yes, she had Cliff and Mirein to help broker the deal worth Atlia. However, they kind of questioned the deal until Yuna tells them she dug tunnel on her own.
During that time, it seems that Fina is becoming a bit lonely. She is afraid of revealing how she feels to Yuna. This becomes very apparent after Yuna took Fina to the seaside town with her little sister. The townspeople want to give her something after defeating the Kraken. This causes Fina to question her self-worth. Of course, Noa eventually finds out that Fina is not being aggressive enough.
Yes, this is very evident with Fina’s reluctance to share how she feels or asking for time to spend with her, even if Yuna asks for a break. When Fina asks for a break, she used it to get better at harvesting. But it’s obvious that Fina is just doing it to avoid being self-indulgent with Yuna, which she desires so much. It takes her father to encourage her to do so after he asked how long she plans to stay.
In the end, when Fina is about to tell Yuna how she feels, Yuna takes her to that spot when they first met. Yuna finally realizes that it’s Fina that makes her realize that she needs her. It only took Noa to ask her about Fina becoming distant. Either way, it’s nice to see them back together in the simplest way possible.
Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear is of course a very enjoyable Isekai type of story. Sure, the world building is not as in depth compared to other shows in the genre while being more on the lighthearted side. Of course, the appeal of this show is the characters. After all, the characters for the most part are enjoyable.
While Yuna is obviously overpowered, it’s nice to see her use the power for good. Also, it’s nice to see how Yuna develops from being a person who doesn’t need anyone to caring about people who she cares about. This is especially the case with Fina, who she saves and develops a bond with her as the story progresses. As expected, with a second season already announced, I wonder how Yuna’s relationship with Fina will develop from here along with further world building. ¶
