xxxHOLiC◆継 Episode 06

SPOILER Summary:

Watanuki, Yuuko-san, Mokona, and Doumeki play Mahjong under the sakura tree where the ghost of the woman that Kohane-chan had been scheduled to excise now resided. Watanuki has never played and so is “owned” by the others. Himawari-chan’s visit coincides with Watanuki’s worst loss of the game. Even the Ame-Warashi and Zashiki-Warashi stop by. In the end, despite apparently coming close to a big win, Watanuki loses. The ghost is happy to leave this world having seen the game and Watanuki is tasked with preparing for a party, Ame-Warashi and Zashiki-Warashi in tow. Since this was set up by Doumeki to give the ghost peace, he pays Yuuko-san with some high quality sake.

Thoughts:

Well, despite being mildly amusing (and I do enjoy seeing Zashiki-Warashi and Ame-Warashi), I didn’t feel this had the impact that the manga story did. This is mainly due to Yuuko-san taking the game seriously along with Mokona and Doumeki. In the manga, the different hands or whatever had meaning but here, there was no meaning. Only the game itself was something, and that was weak. Oh well. The writers had to fill a ton of time since what was in the manga would have been over in ten minutes.
