I thought this weeks episode was the second to last. I literally just found out that there are 11 episodes to this series, not 10, so next weeks episode is technically what we in the BL community have come to call the “cursed” episode and the trailer for the episode has left me with a chilling sense of dread for what is to come.
But that’s a problem for the future. Let’s focus on the now. Episode 9 of silent was an emotional rollercoaster, so buckle up Buttercup.
The good, slightly naughty emotions:Sou doesn’t smile at Tsumugi like he does Minato.
The warm fuzzy emotions: It was nice to see Sou interacting with his sisters and his family. I do love his relationship with his sisters. Though I did find his elder sister a bit self-centered, I do understand her concern. Moe is this weeks MVP because she always has her brother’s back.
The Swamps of Sadness emotions: When he asks his mother “Are these ears broken?” I was sobbing into my comforter with one hand while sipping from a glass of wine with the other. One of the things I have come to love about Meguro Ren (and there are a lot) is how easily is for him to pull emotion from his audience. Most of the fans I’ve talked to feel the same way. When he cries, we cry.
The awe, that’s cute! Emotion: I do love the interactions between Sou and Aoba. For not being able to comunicate vocally with one another these two have incredible chemistry.
Even if Sou’s eyes don’t glisten with Tsumugi like they do with Minato.
#MinatoSou 4 ever!
Just kidding. It’d totally be SouMinato.
More silent next week so…
First of all, I was happy for and looking forward to you gushing over Sou and Minato being together this episode. There was no ignoring Minato this time.
Emotional episode, I take back all the pissed off thoughts I’ve had about Sou’s mom. Moe really is so cool, I loved her whining about her older siblings being soooo annoying.
Next episode does look like it’s going to be a heart wrencher. I really don’t want to have to be angry at Sou for hurting Tsumigi again (the little preview makes it seem like he’s the one to rock the boat.)
I am mesmerized by that last gif of Meme, with the broody eyes and lip biting. I might pop back often just to enjoy that.
He is just the DREAMIEST man. And I do agree about taking back my original thoughts about Sou’s mom too 🙂 it’s so good!
