I am thoroughly convinced this show is about the daily life of a tiny married couple and until proven otherwise I will preach this fact till the season finale. Also Yuru Camp now has competition for “Iyashikei” of the season.
We joined our married couple Hakumei and Mikochi taking a heavy dresser home. Mikochi wasn’t pleased that she had to carry it.
Back home as Mikochi was cooking and accidentally broke Hakumei’s mug the other was more focused on a news article about an “evening kite” bird. It’s said that an evening kite is able to grant one wish to the ones who catch it…though the main reason Hakumei wanted to tame it was shown above.
As they began their journey up a mountain the two hitched a ride on beetles. Mikochi didn’t enjoy the ride as much, especially when Hakumei asked if they could keep one as a pet. Mikochi then reminisced of a white bird that used to frequently visit her so she kinda considered it her pet. She always fed it minestrone soup until one day it stopped coming. Hakumei amusingly asked if the white bird turned red from eating all the minestrone. #Foreshadowing.
Our heroines reached the top of the mountain and waited for the evening kite to appear. It took a while but eventually it did.
To the surprise of no one the evening kite turned out to be Mikochi’s old friend Kafu. They didn’t think they would actually see the bird so neither had a particular wish in mind. All was well and Kafu took its friends back home. Unfortunately for Hakumei forgot about her other reason to find the evening kite.
The second half of the episode had Mikochi taking Hakumei to the port town of Arabi. They visited the port town lounge to greet the barkeep. However, Mikochi lost her wallet somewhere in town. The barkeep knew Mikochi was super adorable so she lend her a helping hand.
Mikochi was treated like the town princess.
The rest of the episode was full of fun and cute and it made me very very happy. Mikochi eventually found her wallet and all was well.
As readers can tell I absolutely loved this premiere and Mikochi is one of my favorite characters of the Winter season next to Harumin…and my one true love’s character hasn’t debuted yet! I can only imagine what her character will bring to the table once she does.
