In the spring, when Kashiwazaki Yui and her 3 years old son were coming back home from kindergarten, she let go of her son's hand for a moment and then he was gone. 9 years later, her son appears in front of her again.
After watching Ep 6, I do feel for Asako to a certain extent (and I do feel like her mother's wish for a child pushed her to the limit). But... that doesn't negate the pain Yui and her family felt for 9 years either. I mean... they spent 9 years not knowing if Kou was alive or not. I'm not sure if I could handle that. I think not knowing makes it really unbearable.
I already watched the raw for Ep 7, and I started translating it (will probably be up in a few days from now)... but Ep 7 it really broke my heart to see Yui like that. The frustration I feel towards Asako hasn't changed. Like ugh, I was just crying so much watching Ep 7.
I can't feel -not even a hint of- sympathy towards the 12 years old Kou or Asako!
The more I watch them, the more I hate their relationship and their personalities.
I can't believe that! the poor parents went through a lot, he came after all these years knowing the blind truth and yet only acting up in a dreadful way with them! and even if he's only a 12 years old kid, he should've felt some kind of emotions towards them especially when knowing how horrible was the life they spent when he was gone!
He's so selfish, that's all I can say.. at some points, I believe it would've been better if he never showed up.....
Eff, I am so pissed off...
Gosh, this dorama bug my heart. How can a kid act like nothing happen but inside he never ever love other person other than MAMA. My heart aches. Jeez. Hate hate. I just wanna cry. I put my shoe on Yui's
This is really good and much more easy to watch than I'd thought. It's poignant without being sappy and manages to also fit in some cute and humor, so the overall feel doesn't end up too heavy. Looking forward to the rest =D
