Sing because you love to sing, not because you’re bound by rules.
Really, what’s stopping them from doing what they love? I’m going to say it again: I love their spirit. And I am loving their passion even more. These aren’t just kids who are aiming to do whatever they have their sights on, but kids who truly believe in the magic of music and singing. I know that feeling because it has a healing effect during a crisis. Like Konatsu said, they should be singing because they’re in a school-wide crisis. Why not express their feelings, share their devotion to what should have been and have fun with it? These stuck-up kids need to lighten up a little and stop abiding by the rules. Not everything is meant to be strictly black and white.
Little extra developments are always nice to have so late in the game. One such example is on Taichi, who is turning out to be a game-changer with his desire to help out more. I’m not sure what he has for Sawa (I like their chemistry), but getting a little more screen time to make up for a single episode for his badminton hurrah definitely reminds us that he’s an important member of this second choir group. Wien, too; I think that random singing really brought the gang together after a little scuffle that could have destroyed any chances of performing in unity. Add his all-nighter gig and in my eyes, he’s redeemed himself from the embarrassingly funny superhero stint. It’s time like these that the boys needed to step up and they really did.
There’s a lot more to be had and I’m really anticipating some heartwarming performance in the Tari Tari finale. I am wondering how the VP will react after warming up a little to Wakana at the grave, and whether more people decide to join in the new White Festival that Konatsu so firmly wants to have. Speaking of whom, Konatsu may be a bit dimwitted at times, but as proven throughout the series, she’s very passionate about singing and it has shown every time people try to oppose her proposition. I expect a lot of adults falling down to their knees and succumbing to this song that’s been created in the past and present. Yeah, that sounded a little corny but I’m going to jump on this wagon and see it through. It may not be too much of a miracle but it should leave a strong impression by next week.
