Love, Ripped Apart/Hikisakareta Ai
More info after the Read More link.
Taken from a discussion amongst fans which would explain the plot a little who didn't quite understand what is going on.
Someone feels this is an explosive episode. Takechi Hanpeita has made his stands known to everyone that he's in the Joui or anti-foreigners movement, and nothing can stop him. Yes,we will finally see the beginning of scheming Takechi Hanpeita. As for the emotional scene, well, some people are not too keen with the farewell parting, though one of them did mentioned that Masha did managed to go another level with his acting. We'll see... Oh, that AKB48 girl will also made her first appearance. Oh, Goto Shojiro too. Bath scene!!!! Did you all see him screaming in the bath coz' Otome was making the water too hot & he stood up with his back facing the camera. The proposal (Ryoma to Kao and Kao accepts). Kao cries while saying yes...Takechi gate-crash into... Koichi Castle. yataro's been released... and the first guy he met is ryoma.. he doesn't know about kao & ryoma yet. He was so happy bragging about Nagasaki in there. Finally, Yataro & Ryoma meet after a long time. What a reunion. Yataro is going to Nagasaki.what is kao onichan rejecting for? He doesn't like Ryoma that much after he came back from Edo. Look at the glare he gave him when Kao went out with him.So Takechi is taking action into his own hands seeing the bakufu is not doing anything about the foreign invasion. Kao onichan & Takechi needs Kao to do spy work.They are going to force her.such a lowly way to force a sister not to marry someone. Moreover for some lowly job as spying (by threatening to kill himself and forcing his sister to say yes to what they both want her to do). Ryoma was waiting for her & now it's too late. So sad. So cruel. Final farewell between Kao and sad Ryoma. Episode ended with a tearful hug between these 2 people. Masha said in ann that tonight's episode is the LAST episode you can see a lovely and pure ryoma, you can see his change from next episode.
Next week is another dark political episode. He is a changed man after this. Everyone is pushing him away from Tosa.
I missed the bathing scene!! Very sad episode, Masha's performance up one level with him acting crazy trying to stop Kao from leaving him but his friend, well so called friend Hanpeita rushed out to console him. What a friend eh? Truth is I read that the story changed a little. In history Ryoma was engaged to Sana, not Kao but in here I suppose for dramatic effect Ryoma fell for Kao and rejected poor Sana. Not many fans like that as not many fans like Kao. Myself like Kao though I can't understand what makes her brother and Hanpeita thinks she can be a good spy? The fact that she is so unassuming, so ordinary, so pliant? But I don't like Ryoma-Kao combination because I find Masha and the actress whom I never quite lack seriously lacking chemistry. I don't buy their love, not convinced by either's anguish since I am not convinced by Ryoma's affection for Kao. Maybe more episodes should have been dedicated to developing their relationship rather than just assumptions he loves her, well enough to later break the law and ran away and became quite interestingly, stateless. An emotional episode, will surely achieve good ratings but not very touching in a sense I am just not convinced. Like I said, a serious lack of chemistry between these 2.
