xxxHOLIC: Kei 06

Episode 6 – Peace-The Flower
(post contains spoilers}

This episode mainly focuses on the game Mahjong played between Watanuki, Doumeki, Yuko, and Mokona.
Though it may have seemed to be a relatively filler episode at first, we find out later that the reason behind why they played Mahjong was because of the Cherry Blossom spirit that we encountered in the previous episode.
Watanuki has been forced to play Mahjong by Yuko-san and eventhough he does not know how to play at all, he ends up playing becuase he had no other choice (Yuko did not give him a choice, just a stack of books to crash study on how to play the game. Poor guy.)
Himawari, Zashiki Warashi, and Ame Warashi makes an appearance throughout the period of the game.
The biggest loser of the game was of course our dear Watanuki.
And nothing good seem happen when Himawari is around.

Impression

This episode was pretty interesting to watch. Being able to see Watanuki bullied by the 3 was really fun to watch. It just seems like no matter what he does, he just screws it up – even the good things. =D

As I mentioned, nothing good seems to happen around Himawari. When Himawari appears everything just seems to go wrong, Watanuki had thrown out a card that was needed by all 3 of them and he ended up losing a whole lot of money. It was not like he was on a winning streak before, on the contrary actually, but things just get worst with Himawari around.

My favourite part of the episode was naturally the ending. While the rest was fun and all, the ending where Yuko imparts a piece of wisdom is just the best – it always is. I personally like the way this season is playing out, where the episodes are linked together in some way or another and not plainly episodic.

The ED song is just as addictive as always of course. It is just such a playful song with a playful tune to it. =)

However, one thing that I felt was missing was the classic banter between Doumeki and Watanuki. Though both were near each other through the whole episode, they did not really argued like they would normally do.

  1. Well, all I can say is “read the manga”. I think the manga is more poignant than the anime, and leaves a deeper impression

  3. lol, well………….. it might be possible.
    alot of people do want to think that it is possible for a DoumekiXWatanuki relationship. But i highly doubt that that is true. At least not from the current eps. They look like friends who banter and stuff but Watanuki is still pretty much infatuated with Himawari. =_=
