March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 4

Review:

This episode is probably the weakest entry for this series yet. The first three episodes kind of hit us hard and we really got inside Kiriyama’s head. As a psychological anime it was impressive and visually stunning. Then we get to episode 4 and we watch middle child syndrome girl (Hina) struggle to give lunch to a boy she has a crush on and then we see the youngest of the crew (Momo) latch on to the round shiny shougi player (forgotten his name) before we all share dinner and sweets. It isn’t a particularly interesting development and other than one flashback from Kiriyama (and can we please get an explanation for that situation later because that looked infinitely more interesting than what we were watching) there isn’t much depth to the characterisation this episode. Hopefully this is not a sign of things to come.

March Comes in Like a Lion is available on Crunchryoll.

  1. I agree, though on one hand it was nice to get to know more about the Kawamoto family and if I had been binge watching this series after it’s completion I might have welcomed an occasional episode like this to help keep things from getting too heavy, I did find the lack of progression irritating, especially after the cruel, cruel tease of that flashback.

I'd love to know what you think.
