It’s Kessoku’s band’s turn to play at the cultural festival. Will things turn out for the band? However, Hitori’s guitar starts to show signs that can ruin the performance.
Last time, Kessoku Band finally went on stage, and Hitori saw her parents and fans in the audience. So, of course, the first song went on without a hitch. After that, however, Hitori feels a bit uneasy, and her feelings of concern are right. She found out she couldn’t tune her E string while her B string came off as one of the pegs broke off.
Thankfully, her band members had her back, and Hitori managed to improvise. She used one of the sake cans that Kikuri had to keep the string in place. That way, she can still do her solo, although it was a little out of tune. But, of course, this only made the audience like Hitori’s performance even more. After all, she looks even cooler using a sake can to keep playing her song.
After they performed their second song, Ikuyo wanted Hitori to say something. Of course, given her social anxieties, she didn’t know what to say. After remembering what Kikuri would do, she threw herself into the audience, thinking she would get carried by the crowd. Instead, she faceplants to the ground. Now that is super embarrassing. Thankfully, Hitori survived, although their performance got cut short, and they had to do the after-party another time.
With that, we knew something terrible would happen with Hitori’s guitar since it’s old. Thankfully, Hitori didn’t realize that guitarhero was the family account that her parents set up. They set up monetization without Hitori knowing and presented her money. I find it hilarious how she thought her parents got it from a shady place.
Still, it’s nice for Hitori to have more than enough money for a guitar and pay off her quotas. She thought about quitting her job, but her social anxiety wouldn’t allow it. Also, her friends took her to a music store to pick a guitar. I find it funny how she does headbanging so nobody would talk to her. Of course, she stood out instead.
While Ryou tested out guitars, Hitori picked one out. Yes, the custom-made Yamaha one almost looks like the one she has. Of course, she acted like a puppet doll as Ikuyo said Hitori was shopping for a replacement and wanted to buy that one. Of course, after buying it, I find it funny how Hitori runs away when the shopkeeper lady wants her to return regularly. Either way, it seems Hitori likes her new guitar but still feels bad about the old one. She starts taking the new one to school the next day.
Like any Manga Time Kirara adaptation, Bocchi the Rock didn’t just meet expectations but exceeded them. Cloverworks is on a roll this year, and this is no exception. Kind of amazing how they bring Hitori’s coping mechanism with her delusions concerning her social anxiety quite well. Also, she is pretty relatable for those who have social anxieties or are introverted. This is in comparison to the extroverted Ikuyo and the lone wolf Ryou.
As for the characters, I did really enjoy them, and they work well with Hitori’s personality. Like with Manga Time Kirara shows, there are some yuri pairings. For example, Ikuyo is crushing on Ryou. The pairings look more like Ikuyo and Hitori, as Ikuyo is very supportive of her. Also, Ryou and Nijika since they are childhood friends too. Also, Kikuri is a fun character, although she is always seen as a drunk.
Overall, Bocchi the Rock is a very enjoyable show. It is no wonder it received a lot of attention and praise. Also, the music from the show is good too. The question is, is the popularity enough to warrant a second season. Well, we have to wait and see on that one. Still, most schoolgirl slice-of-life genre and Manga Time Kirara enthusiasts like myself will enjoy this one.
