(I've been wondering that since I've first watched it.)Also, how come the twerps didn't notice the name of the restaurant?)
I’ve never thought about this scene from that perspective and I just... awwwwMusashi's still a dumbarse for leaving in the first place, but her abandoning her failed attempt to reconcile with Nyasu to save Kojiro's life is... <3
Omg I never noticed Manene in this shot before!! Look at that happy little face... I love the idea that that's Kojiro's inner voice
Manene right here is Kojiro on the inside.
Exactly. This is not the face of a woman who feels she is finally liberated from her duty to stay with the team, rather that of someone who is doing the hard but right thing (or so she thinks):I don’t think she actually is happy in this scene. I think despite her hopes and excitement for fully pursuing her Contest career, she is reluctant to leave Kojiro but she tries to tell herself this’ll be better for both of them so puts on a smile for them both.
Musashi putting on a brave face after she has made up her mind is totally in character. Her quick and impersonal escape is a reflection of her reluctance to have the decision challenged having made it, because she is scared she will change her mind and stay, which she truly believes is not in Kojiro's best interests. Her "dreams are something you have to wake up from sometime" line is particularly telling about her sustained belief that her current happiness/domestic set-up cannot last.
Sighs happily I don’t know what I like the most about this scene; the fact Musashi offered the doughnut to him when she saw he was distressed, the joyful look on his face when she offers it to him, him eating it out of her hand...Such a cute scene this week, how often do we get to see Musashi being the caring, thoughtful, 'I know you better than you know yourself' one?!:
I still can’t believe we have two scenes in this series now of her standing over him in worry!Bonus:
