Sexy man show is back and it’s still fucking weird. I’m not sure how I feel about the show and this episode reminded me why I always felt a little weird with it. I love it because of how balls to the wall insane it is, but sometimes it can be a little too zany? It still cracks me up so I’m still pretty happy that this show is back.
It looks like the show had to skip an episode if that’s true, and if it is then that explains the random beginning with Haru meeting Daisuke’s grandmother. It sounds like they all went to Hong Kong and they brought back a souvenir but we never got to see any of that. Considering the stuff that’s happening in Hong Kong, I guess I could see why they would not want to air an episode about it (depending on what it was about?) Still, it was funny to see that Daisuke is kinda scared of his grandma.
This episode was…okay? Haru meets this 18 year old kid on the train on his way to his business trip to Nagoya and talked with him for a bit, nothing out of the ordinary. When he gets off on his stop he learns that the train stopped because there’s a standoff happening. And lo and behold, it’s the kid he was talking to. I understand his reasoning for doing what he did, but man this kid is dumb as hell. He wanted the money to send his sister to the United States so she could get the surgery, and I suppose he didn’t even have enough. He ends up streaming himself holding people hostage on the train pointing a gun to a woman after shooting another, and is raking up the views so he can make money off of it. What the hell? Why on earth would you stream a stand off inside of a train car where you’re making people think you’re killing people? You do know that police are going to come after you, surround you, and you literally won’t be able to escape. So…what’s the point of getting all that streaming money when you’re not alive to collect it? I don’t think his sister is on it too so why on earth would you so something like this? This is possibly one of the stupidest ways to get money and honestly I don’t even feel sorry for the kid. Thankfully Haru was there so he wouldn’t get sniped, but now he’s ruined his entire life and is going to be in jail for probably a long time. Yeah his sister will be fine since Daisuke was kind enough to help, but yeah, you screwed yourself over dude.
As stupid as the kid was, I did like how more serious the episode was…until the end when the old ladies didn’t give a single fuck about what was happening and only cared about the farewell concert they wanted to go to. So much so, that the woman that was being held was ready to let herself die so her friends could go! They then proceeded to creepily approach the kid in a silly manner, but then were distracted when Daisuke brought over the actual idol group to perform for them. I just…what the fuck. What even is this show? It’s so strange and stupid it cracks me up, but that scene also didn’t really fit the mood most of the episode was going for sooo…yeah. I don’t know.
One thing that was pretty interesting was the reason why Haru was demoted. I guess I don’t really understand police protocol so I don’t really get why Haru was punished for what he did? He was given the okay to use fire on the burglar in the bank to disarm. For some reason one of the bank tellers went to check on the man even though he could have killed them, which also doesn’t make sense. It gets more absurd when the woman picks up the burglar’s gun and points it at Haru? I don’t know what was going through this woman’s mind because none of it makes sense, but since she was holding his gun and looked like she was going to shoot, Haru shot at her first and I assumed killed her. Now…I don’t get it. Haru had the permission to use his gun, and he shot this woman in self defence since it looked like she was ready to shoot at him. So why was he demoted? Like I said, maybe I don’t understand police protocol or maybe I’m just missing something but I don’t see why he had to be punished since I feel like he acted in the right.
Daisuke had a smaller role this episode but he helped quite a bit, and he’s being less of an ass with each episode so that’s nice. One thing in this show that continues to get a laugh out of me is whenever Daisuke shows up or does literally anything, that upbeat jazz song of his plays every time. Every. Time. He’ll just stand there and the music plays anyways and it’s so funny, I hope they never stop doing that. Continue being over the top, Fugou Keiji.
