That’s right! I’m lovelorn! And the more I laughed, the more the more whatever building inside me disappeared into thin air.
It’s time for another love and relationship quotes 101 from Kaoru-sensei! Also, I’m publishing this episode blog earlier than the expected time due to some family weekend plans.
This episode deals with Kaoru’s heavy heart and the succeeding drama after Ritsuko utterly rejected him. It also hints of Yurika’s eventual eloping with Jun. Of all the currently-airing Spring series, Apollon still brings the greatest realism and fluid writing for drama, to the point that you’ll cry or get depressed on scenes which you’ve experienced in one way or another. Man, I feel pitiful and sad about Kaoru’s situation in most of the first half of this series, it’s quite a good thing that he has his cheery friend Sentarou there to cheer him up! Event ordering also made a lot of sense. Kaoru feeling better after his trip to Tokyo and chat with his estranged mother about school and getting broken-hearted, is both realistic and logical.
Seriously, Apollon is one of the best coming-of-age romantic and historical dramas that comes with GREAT jazz music courtesy of Kanno Youko. It’s a great experience; I am both speechless, and sobbing just thinking about the numberous things happened just in this episode.
Episode Entertainment Factor: 100/100
