Just time for a quick touch-base on Shirokuma this week, I’m afraid. It was a pretty low-key ep after last week’s blockbuster baseball two-parter, and one of the episodes that definitely showcases the show’s less ironic and more sincere side. The highlight of the first chapter featuring Panda-kun working in Shirokuma’s place as an apology for getting him arrested was the bit where the obaa-san ended up being seated with Lion-san – her reaction was quite understandable, but they ended up bonding. Only in Shirokuma Café.
As for the second chapter, it was all about the little tease about seeing Penguin-san get into his chair – damn you, Sasako-san, now we’ll never know! Rin-Rin is a creeper for sure, but at least he brought Panda-san his own stalker bouquet there at the end – though it wasn’t needed thanks to one kind-hearted little girl. And who knew Panda-kun was working so hard at his job, anyway? Being that cute isn’t easy.
