It is unique, and it is impressive as well. The 3rd episode of After the rain is out now and the storytelling in this episode was just beautiful. Here is my After The Rain Episode 3 review.
So we get to see the real backstory of our main lead character “Tachibana.” We get to know what exactly happened to her, how did she get that leg injury. It was very sad and very interactive also the way they described it was just very impressive. I used to be a boxer, and I messed up with a fist by overdoing my practice, I can completely related to the story that they told us. I’m sure if you are a sportsperson and ever get injured you that you will relate to the today’s story of After the rain.
Tachibana was a treak racer, and she does love it and in this episode when she was sitting on the bench watching her friends running in the field was just so sad. It’s like when you want something, and it’s right in front of, you can see others getting it but you specifically can’t get it, can’t do it. Tachibana would be feeling more than emotion at the same time. She would be sad, angry, happy for her friends but jealous too. Seeing that made me sad, made me sorry for her.
Other than that we get to see the love confession. Tachibana went to her Manager and said she likes him. Which is similar to saying I love you. For me, the part where she confessed her feeling to the manager was just amazing. It was raining, Tachibana was drenched and went to the office and said: “I like you.” While standing in the rain. When the Manager that she likes her, her heart skipped a beat, or you may say his breathing stopped for a second. He stopped hearing everything and the only sound he could hear was the sound of Tachibana’s steps.
The confession is not that common in anime’s, but we get to see one in this series. Now the Manager kind of accepted it but the problem of age difference is causing confusion in Managers head. Love doesn’t care about the age difference, and this series is trying to showcase that only. I don’t know about you guys, but I loved this series. And according to me After the rain is a good contender in the series in Winter of anime 2018 list.
