Do you ever wake up for school and wonder “why is my school so weird?” Well, perhaps you may unknowingly be a student in a Japanese drama! Check out these signs and see for yourself!
So since I absolutely love this show and don’t want to let it go, I’ve got one last SuiYan post for you all. It’s a fun little thing I like to call the Mizu Tama awards!
Alright, I’ll be honest. It’s just an excuse for me to share some of the screencaps I didn’t get to use in my recaps. Feel free to join me in the fun!
So here we are, y’all. The final episode. I have a lot to say about this episode and this series, but I’ll save it for the end, so let’s jump right to the recap part and see how the KasuKou vs. Suiran match goes down.
So I was thinking after last week’s episode, that there’s a distinct lack of yankees in a show that has yankees in the title. Sure, Naoya looks like a stereotypical yankee with his ridiculous hair and his clothing style. But he doesn’t really act like one. He doesn’t really go around starting fights (except for that one time he punched Mean VP in the face) and he’s not carrying around lead pipes and stuff like that. With that thought in mind, let’s see how this episode turns out.
Okay y’all, I’ve been fighting off a cold all week and sadly have no leeks to cure me. But just like the Mizu Tama boys do, I keep on rolling. Today’s episode theme is “Never give up! The possibilities are endless!” And we’ve got some discussion on the subject of role models. So let’s talk about it!
So here we are folks! It’s time for a field trip! The KasuKou gang finally get to go to their training camp. Spoiler alert: there is no corn. But instead, we get camp shenanigans, sorta love confessions, wood chopping, and even some, dare I say it, character development! Let’s talk about it!
So we’ve reached episode seven! And finally we have some conflict concerning Naoya! Even though Naoya is pretty much the main character, the story’s conflict has up until now centered around Ryuji. Naoya, on the other hand, has been gung-ho about water polo since the beginning. So here we have an episode that questions everything Naoya is about. Will he get kicked off the team and out of school? And how much does he really love water polo? Let’s find out!
Episode six teaches us all a very important lesson. It’s a lesson that we have heard countless times before, but somehow always need to be reminded about. And that is: You are not alone!
In a drama about friendship, this is a vital lesson! And therefore, this is a vital episode! Let’s talk about what happened!
This episode is the KasuKou team’s first water polo match and everyone’s reactions to what occurred afterwards. How well did the team play? What’s going on with the Suiran team? And who’s about to shake things up for everyone? Things are heating up in this drama! Let’s find out what happened!
So we have arrived at episode 4 and it was not the team’s first water polo match as the preview led us to believe. Instead, we get more character bonding, some back story (for Chiaki and his friend Kouki this time), and a nice training montage. In terms of pacing, it slows the plot a little which might not be best for such a short series, but we still got a lot of information and some fun happens. So let’s discuss!
Here we have episode three which is all about the team’s efforts to recruit former Water Polo Ace, Brooding Ryuji. Let’s see how well that works out for everyone!
