Hanamaru Kindergarten Episode 1 Part 2 – So I Herd U Liek BackstoryPosted: January 23, 2010
I forgot to post this yesterday. WHOOPS.
So we return to the story a little bit after where I left off in Part 1. Tsuchida is talking to the Principal and other teachers about the scene that was made because of Anzu’s outburst. They aren’t mad at him or anything, in fact, they seem to intend to use it as something to poke fun at him with occasionally.
We are then introduced to all the teachers.
Tsuchida also brings up a point about what happened even before the little scene that Anzu’s outburst created. All of the parents were giving him funny looks and seemed worried because there was a male Kindergarten teacher.
We then get told that only one in fifty teachers is male, which is some educational and somewhat irrelevent information.
Then the show seemed to finally have enough fun baiting us, and brought up what happened at the end of the first part, the deal with Tsuchida knowing Anzu’s mom.
So then we go into flashback mode.
So they seemed to be friends in High School. Though, there was a reason they showed this specific scene rather than a random one of them talking in class or something. We get some interesting information from this conversation.
We learn that Anzu’s mother (whose name is Sakura) is not only married, but she’s already pregnant. Because of this, she’s dropping out of High School to go to America with her husband since he got an offer from a University there.
Shortly after, Sakura leaves with some of her friends and the flashback is over.
Back in the present, we see Anzu, Hiiragi, and Koume at each of their houses talking to their parents or relatives about what happened on their first day of school. We get to learn something about Hiiragi too: she’s into cosplay.
At Anzu’s house, her father has come home and they’re eating dinner at the table. Sakura tells him about how Tsuchida is Anzu’s Kindergarten teacher, and he comments on how it’s been quite a while since they’ve seen him.
Then they drop the bomb.
Yeah. Sakura married and was impregnated by her Art Teacher shortly after getting in the class. This means that an Anzu x Tsuchida ending isn’t totally out there.
Later, when Anzu’s father gives Sakura a goodnight kiss, she tells Anzu to make sure she also gets one. Anzu says that she doesn’t need one.
When asked what she means by this, Anzu just smiles and giggles.
The next morning, Tsuchida again wakes up late and rushes to school as fast as he can. Waiting for him at the entrance are Anzu and her mother. They greet him and tell him they have some things to tell him.
First, they thank him for saving Anzu back in the first part. Second… well I’ll let the screencaps talk.
When Tsuchida asks Sakura about her opinion on this whole deal, she gives an epic response.
Shortly after this, the episode ends.
CONCLUSIONS: Oh god I love this show. It’s cute and hilarious at the same time.
Episode 2 is already out and Episode 3 will be out soon enough, so you guys will get those soon unless I forget to do them or something like how this should have been out yesterday. >_>
Now for the obligatory Pedobear pictures…
