“Fanfare of Adolescence dives deep into Hayato’s problems as Yu also faces his own problems. This is another compelling episode.”
The fifth episode of Fanfare of Adolescence aired last Saturday. So, is this series continues to be as good as when it started?
HAYATO FACES CHALLENGES
After last week‘s post credit scene, this episode deals with Hayato’s problems. It is the perfect opportunity to get to know more about him. And this is exactly what the episode does. Right from the start, we learn something unexpect about him. Which adds another layer to the character. He is fighting to stay fit in order to keep training as a jockey. And it is not easy for him. We witness a character who is conflicted and when in trouble instead of asking for help he withdraws into himself. This is not going to end well. And this week’s post credit scene is a big cliffhanger.
Furthermore, this episode properly introduces the remaining members of Mr. Doctor, the idol group. They are actually voiced by two members of JO1, the group singing the opening and ending songs. Kōsei and Masaki seem like nice characters. But the best thing about seeing them was witnessing Aki’s reaction. Behind his tough looks, he is actually an adorable person. He was so happy to meet the other two members of Mr. Doctor. In fact, he was actually blushing. I love this fanboy side of him.
As Hayato faces his problems, Yu also has some problems to face with Mr. Doctor. Their agent is a despicable character and her look matches her personality. She reminds me so much of the Witch of the Waste from Howl’s Moving Castle. It is a fitting look for a character I think we are all going to hate.
Fanfare of Adolescence dives deep into Hayato’s problems as Yu also faces his own problems. This is another compelling episode.
Fanfare of Adolescence is now streaming on Crunchyroll.
