Episode 6 – Damon: A Recipe for Happiness


right Now This is amazing It’s more than the show I thought we’d get. In episode six, Deiamon returns to the family theme with some revenge, and also gives us a more coherent episode than the previous two episodes. Although it is still clearly divided into two sections, they complement each other better than the other sections, and this all makes for an even better viewing experience. The theme is for both parents and children, with the first half focusing on a family sports day in the neighborhood and the second on Itsuka’s mother returning to fetch her. Both halves feel important because they know each other so well. When Nagomu first suggested Itsuka to enter into a parent/kid rivalry because they’re “basically like father and daughter anyway”, her reaction wasn’t positive, but we quickly saw that she really wanted to see Nagomu in it light, because it’s his encouragement that drives her to win the race. She can’t articulate it because she has a biological father attached to him, but there is a feeling that she wouldn’t mind Nagomu continuing to take on a parental role she has no name.

The idea that “parents” are supposed to be both a mother and a father, along with the assumption that all children You have Parents are Itsuka who feels like a knife. We can see it in her long look at the ‘parent/child’ label next to Decabane (which I’m assuming is part of her ’embellished’ sweat and ‘pants’) and in her memory of not being able to partake in it the year before. It’s the kind of accidental hurt that you probably get a lot of; Her friend’s comment about how she assumed Itsuka’s parents were somewhere for work is another small cut in the girl’s psyche. And when her mother reappears in the second half of the episode, we can see that Itsuka never feels particularly attached to her, or at least not to the degree that society assumes her daughters feel about their mothers. This is largely because her mother was the breadwinner while her father was the stay-at-home parent; In Itsuka’s mind, Mama was the only one who didn’t naturally exist. I don’t think she doubted that her mother loved her – more than she was used to being the least present parent.

We don’t often talk about her mother’s feelings, but what we see means that she feels like she’s supposed to take Itsuka back with her, and that she was always meant to be the parent who takes care of the baby. And yes, her dad dumped Itsuka at a sweet shop before he left, so that’s not a great sign of his parenting skills. But her mother had never called her daughter for five years and made no effort to find and see her until she had stopped hearing from her husband. That’s nothing too fun about her parenting skills, and it’s the first real sign of how much she loves her child when she realizes the best thing she can do for Itsuka is to let her stay where she feels happy, loved, and safe — even if she makes derogatory comments about Itsuka’s takeover of the industry. sweets.

Not everyone takes it for granted that they are a father or enjoy being one. That’s fine, and it’s also something Itsuka’s mom has to realize for herself. I don’t doubt that she loves her daughter, and Itsuka sure is happy to talk to her mother. What will come next is her mother juggling what she is “supposed” to do with what will make her child the happiest, and I really like the decision that comes: she will stay in her daughter’s life, but she will put the child’s happiness first, and if that means not taking him with him, that’s fine. . I don’t pretend to know anything about custody laws in Japan, but for a work of fiction, this really seems like a good compromise for both and a satisfactory guide to the scheme…until her father comes home.
