Wakamonotachi ep10 [review]


I knew things won’t go so smoothly for Asa-nii’s daughter, Akari, being a premature child and all. In this episode, we see how Asa-nii and Azusa struggle with the reality that their daughter might grow up being hearing impaired.

Azusa broke down and couldn’t accept it, ending up blaming herself. I like the addition of the script by the writer for her character mentioning that upon hearing about Akari’s condition, she went and searched for other children worse than Akari, and that made her feel awful. In a way, you tend to look at less fortunate people when trouble strikes you, to make yourself feel like “okay, there are other people with worse conditions out there”, well, if that makes you feel any better, why not?

Wakamonotachi 2014 ep10 (848x480 x264).mp4_snapshot_13.30_[2014.09.20_19.11.01]It’s all in the process of accepting the fate.

At first, I thought Asa-nii’s decision to quit his job was totally dumb and uncalled for. I mean, if he quits, who’s going to be breadwinner in his family? Azusa’s probably working part-time (actually, I’m not sure she’s still working or not after giving birth) but yea, having no job is one of the worst conditions ever.

But I’m glad he went back to the construction company, guess he just loves building roads.

It’s basically just how both Azusa and Asa-nii come to terms with Akari’s condition.

*I’ll admit a little secret here – I did tear up a bit during that scene where the deaf/mute kids were singing.

To be honest, I really don’t mind if they communicate with sign language for a change. That’s only because I still can’t get used to the rowdy and noisy manner of speaking when they gather.

Till the next episode.
