As the title suggests Nagomu is great, I really enjoy him as a character. As per my previous blog, for some reason Nagomu somehow knows what to say at the right time. He’s sincere and very upbeat, overall I’d say he’s a very balanced character. There’s just something about him that makes me feel happy, it’s weird for me to admit that, but here I am.
I’ve gone ten episodes and Nagomu is still existing without there anything really biting away at him. Like there is no internal strife, nothing that would cause him concern. He’s there living a very happy and carefree life, as he spends his days making sweets for people. It honestly makes me want to learn more about Nagomu.
Maybe it’s just me, but I believe that no character can be this happy for this long without there being something he’s trying to hide. The saddest people will almost always do everything in their power to make others happy because they themselves know what it’s like to be totally worthless and don’t want others to feel that. Like, I personally think that’s the case here with Nagomu.
I mean, with almost every episode, he has said things or done things that would make others happy. I don’t remember a time when it was the other way around, maybe it’s me with my selective memory as I try to justify my point here. But I genuinely think that there’s something more to this character.
Like I’ve said before, maybe that’s just me but deep in my conscious I feel like this is the case.
Episode eight through ten were great episodes, however, I thought episode ten was the best one so far. In large part because it didn’t focus on the main characters for once. Instead it focused on a name, Koume. While yes, it was the name of the little girl who caused a stir. The name, its meaning, and the love story between Umeka’s grandfather to a person named Koume was the highlight of the episode.
A love that was not accepted by their parents but was always a part of these two individuals despite being forced to go their own paths; was very moving. Especially since even in their elderly years, they still thought of one another and cherished the memories made. Furthermore, the fact that at the end of it all, these two people managed to get some closure with the return of the hair accessory was a touching end to that love story.
I’m really looking forward to seeing what the final two episodes hold. I hope that they prove me theory right about Nagomu, and I also hope that they expand on Itsuka’s father too. Maybe he’ll make a surprise experience, who knows.
All I know is that Deaimon is shaping up to be a pretty great anime.
