Shika otoko Aoniyoshi 鹿男あをによし Episode 4 Screen Caps

Episode 4 We're stuck here
The drama opens in the kendo club, Hotta played by Tabe Mikako (Yamada Taro Monogatari, Hinokio) easily defeats Ogawa Takanobu played by Tamaki Hiroshi (Nodame Cantabile, Water Boys) in a practice match. Fujiwara Michiko played by Ayase Haruka (Hotaru no Hikari, Hero) announces that the application has been submitted, Tamaki worries about Hotta’s motive for joining the club and is surprised to find that her father runs a kendo training hall. When he confronts her on the roof she agrees that she hates him but is serious about wanting to win the Yamato Cup. Then the scene switches back to the kendo club, Hotta is training her team mates, Tamaki is still worried about Hotta’s motives but Michiko tells him not to worry. Fukuhara Shigehisa played by Sasaki Kuranosuke (Detective Conan 2, Bambino!) arrives with the news that the hosting school can set the rules for the upcoming match but any rule changes have to be submitted that day.

Fans of Bamboo Blade may find some similarities between Hotta and Tama-chan although their characters are completely different their fighting style has many similarities and both were brought up in a kendo hall. While I’m not a sports fan, I think I’d become one if I had the opportunity to watch real kendo matches, but that’s not what this show is about it’s about the laughs and there are plenty in this episode. This show is still one of the best dramas this winter season in my opinion. Fans of this drama should give the Bamboo Blade anime a try there is a lot to like about that show too.
