Sasaki Fusai no Jingi Naki Tatakai 佐々木夫妻の仁義なき戦い Ep. 7 Screen Caps

Ritsuko played by Koyuki (Antique, Kimi wa Pet) overhears Inoki played by Furuta Arata (Saito-san, Tokyo Friends) talking about the kiss he witnessed between Norimichi and Yoshida Sae played by Sakurai Sachiko in front of the hospital. Inoki explains to Ritsuko the circumstances of the kiss and how he came to the law office to tell Ritsuko the details, but to his surprise when he arrived at the office, Yoshida, Norimichi and Ritsuko had just sat down to a meeting together. Ritsuko builds it up in her mind to a rekindled college romance but Inoki states that it didn’t look like he was kissing, rather that he was being kissed. Ritsuko plays back the watch sequences in her head, coming to the conclusion that she won’t be able to forgive him. Meanwhile Norimichi is walking home with Sakuraba Hajime played by Koide Keisuke (Nodame Cantabile, Oishii Proposal) besides him. Norimichi is deep in thought about how he’s going to explain his actions to Ritsuko, he comes to the realization that the watch maybe the central issue. Then he takes out his frustration on Sakuraba.

What started off as another funny episode took a sharp turn to seriousness as the episode continued and then ended on a very surprising note and cliff hanger. I’m really looking forward to the next episode to see how their latest crisis gets resolved.

RH Plus RHプラス Episode 7 Screen Caps

It’s a full moon and for the vampires of Eternal Moon Manor that means an unrestricted night. Ageha leaps down the stairs yelling a greeting as he enters the dining room. He yells it’s a rare bloody, meaning the unrestricted night ahead, and chides Makoto to look a little happier. Kiyoi warns to make sure to escort the girl properly and to act like a gentleman. Makoto reminds Ageha that they failed the last time they went on a hunt. Just then Ami pops up and Ageha starts needling her, but Ami said that she originally had come to invite them to a goukon, then Ageha turns enthusiastic, saying that he be worried if Makoto went alone. Ami teases him for a couple of minutes but then she relents and invites them. Makoto wants to know what they do at a goukon, then Masakazu comes in and tells them he’s the Prince of Goukons and starts giving them advice.

This episode starts off light and funny and turns much darker towards the end. But it’s a lot of laughs watching Ageha and Makoto out on their first group date, trying to use the advice supplied by Masakazu, who’s also out on a goukon with Haruka. Will Masakazu’s advice help the boys, will Masakazu finally be able to score against Haruka who utterly defeated him on the last group date. This show reminds me of Fuma no Kojiro, not only do they share a co-star Fujita Rei (Garo, Fuma no Kojiro) but the way they mix light hearted comedy with much darker themes is also similar.
