Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 10: The war begins


This week's episode felt like it had a lot more of what I like in this show. We're back to showing multiple parallel stories that eventually converge on each other. I'm curious where this story will go...mostly because I don't see Feilang as a future ally.

These two have a pretty fun rivalry. Their banter's pretty entertaining to watch...probably because it's a swirl of baseball and killing style talk.

I'm not sure how much I'm supposed to read into this line because we've seen this guy come to Saruwatari's aid in the past. I guess you could make the argument that Saruwatari still has some use or something.

I like that this scene omits the unnecessary detail. We saw Saruwatari remembering that he has to leave his shuriken as a calling card in the first assassination, so it's reasonable to conclude that he leaves his shuriken at the second location to fulfill his contract. At first, I was wondering why they would place the second killing on him, but now I realize that it makes sense for Saruwatari to want credit for both assassinations.

You're really making your contribution there, Saito...

This scene's another example of omitting the unnecessary detail. We saw in the earlier scene that Enokida asked his informant about the person in charge of evacuating the Kakyuu execs. Here, we see Banba using the information without a scene between him and Enokida. We've seen Enokida tip Banba off in the past, so it's a reasonable conclusion that he asked the informant for Banba.

Okay, I was wondering why Feilang was relevant, and using him to force a rift between Banba and Lin makes sense. I guess we'll see where this goes. Also, I sure wonder what they'll do with that bomb Enokida found.
