The inn is closing? Everyone is feeling down..
Traveling to the city with Takako sure wasn't very pleasant.
Ohana back in Tokyo.
Wow, that Takako sure knows how to kick ass! ^^
Ohana's mom & Ko watching that video sure made an impact on him.

What? Not liking weak dishwater coffee is one of the few pluses about the guy. Strong coffee is the only real coffee.

Not that I had "Stacy's Mom" going on in my head during that thing between Ko and Satsuki. Then again the thought of wanting to be with Ohana's mom would probably confuse his own feelings with Ohana as well.

Good episode though, paralleling the two situations going on.

I would rather see a tool than the blandness that is Ko, the worst type of character to happen to anime in 2000 years. Seeing him at the end of the episode when the lights came on, his giant fucking eyes glowing, a literally wretched. Guys should not have eyes like that.

His interaction with Ohana's mom was decent though, still hate the guy.

Pretty sure none of the male characters in HSI started off with any, and if they did... Grandma probably bitch slapped them off.

I was hoping to see the resolution of Minchi and Tohru-san situation but we got none of that in this episode. That whole Ohana's crush on Ko never interested me much, probably because I don't see one reason why she should like the guy at all.

Conviction

Takako says flat out that Ohana doesn’t have as many problems as she thinks she has, and Ohana does realize that this is indeed true; she may as well be making mountains out of molehills. Kissuiso’s possible closure none withstanding, one of the things we have seen Ohana do a lot of the time in the series lies in two very polar opposites: her tendency to be spontaneous and gung-ho when faced with problems, and her tendency to think and ruminate excessively on many issues. Most people have a single mindset, yet she is very capable of ending up in either extreme. When you think about it, it was her spontaneity in the beginning that left Ko hanging without an answer, and her indecisive rumination again keeps their relationship on an indefinite hold. Perhaps to say that when she should be quick, she is slow, and when she should slow down, she takes things a tad bit too fast. Ohana, like that mix of her childishness and maturity, is again a melding of extremes.

On that train and in Tokyo tower she is given a lot of time to think about her actions, and what she thinks she must do. It’s a bit difficult at this point to understand what she will do, but it’s clear that she possesses enough resolve to finally settle the issue with a decision. She claims to have a one sided crush on Ko, probably stemming from the belief that Ko has finally moved on, but it would seem that her ideas are different from reality. It isn’t one sided.

Maybe Satsuki really hasn’t seen the video of the inn and it’s staff before, but I think she was doing all of that with purpose in mind for Ko. Down in the dumps despite his attempts to get out of it, the poor boy simply was still in limbo whether he still felt the same way for Ohana despite being left hanging all this time. It’s only natural for him to be confused after months of being left in the cold and waiting for a bone, any bone for that matter. He asks Satsuki for things he thinks he needs to learn about his best friend turned potential girlfriend, to which she declines to respond but opts to just show him the Kissuiso video, which I do think she hasn’t seen, but most likely believes has something for him to see: her lfie in Kissuiso he hasn’t been a part of. The video will, at least, show him something he could be there for. With it, seeing Ohana hard at work and having one hell of a Freudian slip on record, gives him some more extra strength to continue a quest he finds to be useless. Nothing could be farther from the truth it seems.

As for the bland coffee bit… bear in mind his comment that Ohana isn’t anything like plain coffee, and Ohana’s penchant for mixing cola and coffee. Aside from the caffeine overdrive, we have only seen once or twice Ohana make her usual combination. The show decides to have her do it again, in the same time that she gets used in a coffee metaphor.

I just noticed in this episode that in the Okami's room the poster behind the seating place has the character for smile or laugh. It is a bit ironic that she is one major character that rarely smiles. Was that poster always been there?

Spoiler for recommend to those who hate it through:
I downloaded episode 22 in early morning, but waited till night to watch it (off day), because I dislike Minko aggressive behavior in last few episodes, but I was glad I did. No spoils from me... you should watch it

About the Inn closing, it was in conjunction with the filming director arc, where they were scammed and Sui brought it up, when the wedding was announced, so there would be less confusion on who would inherit the Inn and maybe changing Takako mind about marrying her son, if theres no Inn.

Relationships... I started watching this series expecting no love triangles relationships like "True Tears", because I get emotionally depress for the character. The genre of this series doesn't even have a romance tag on it. There was small misfits of relationships though, like Ko/Ohana, where the relationship was establish at the beginning, this relationship was to feed into Ohana development and perspective revolving "love". The side characters had their own clause, but the main focus of the series was on Ohana development and how she change herself from the beginning to now.

Interest in this show has seriously quieted down, since it became clear there would be no Ohana x Tooru ending.

300 posts in the Tohru thread in a few weeks says yes. I never thought it had a snowball's chance in hell, personally.

Ko, how much of a pathethic character has become of him? Damn, he could have made a relationship with his meganekko partner because... he's been long away from Ohano with 0 answer after his confession at the first chapter, and then Jinrou says "Its a man's duty to sit and wait"? and Ko's "I haven't been drinking coffee by 6 months" Pfffftttt!!!!

Did he really didn't drink coffee for 6 months?

If I recall correctly, Ohana been away for 6 months. Not sure the last meeting in that Café between Ohana/Ko was, that was the last time they drank those.

Now I'm curious about the time period of that time ^ anyone know (estimate)?
