Quick Impression: This episode just came in sad. I understand Kaoru’s feelings and my long waited appearance of Okamoto Nobuhiko‘s character, Matsuoka Seiji, just stirred things up. Sakamichi no Apollon really doesn’t disappoint. In an overall look on this episode, it had been pretty interesting. Despite the romance being stepped aside for awhile, I really like how things have gotten another interesting step: Kaoru telling Yurika that Jun-nii has been missing. After Kaoru’s jealousy over Sentarou’s decision to join Seiji’s band, he has decided to go back to being alone. AND finally, looks like the long-haired guy drinking by the bar is Jun-nii. I wonder where he has been all this time. For more of my impression, click here.
