    I watched the first episode yesterday and I thought it was pretty good. Good writing, an interesting story/premise and rich characters. The first episode offered more than enough to make me really interested into where the story is going to head.

    Yasaburou looking like a young girl gave the show some incredibly funny randomness. I mean a cute little girl drinking, smoking and showing her ass? Just great

    Re: [Featured] Uchouten Kazoku

    episode one was better than thought it would be

    the plot is more deep and a bit more serious than imagined

    i expected almost pure comedy but there is some interesting drama unfolding as well

    the question is what exactly happened with the master and benten, and why did she kiss yosaborou?

    ok i watched episode two yesterday as well

    the two tanuki brothers with the black hair are assholes, but their sister seems to be nice

    im still trying to figure out the one brother that is a frog....i guess if you keep the same form too long you cannot revert back

    Currently my favorite this season. This show is quite intriguing. The 2nd episode was excellent, I love the soundtracks. I have a question about the MC. Can he really change his gender or it's just cross-dressing? Sad to learn how their father is dead...

    if im not mistaken a tanuki can change to any form

    so a male or female human would be possible for a male tanuki to transform into

    episode 3 was great, we got to see more of the lovely but dangerous benten


    im not sure how the tanuki can be nice to her knowig she eats tanuki hot pot

    probably only for the professors sake

    that raijin fan is awesome

    it seems the father tanuki was amazing

    he transformed into a mountain and decieved the tengu

    Re: [Featured] Uchouten Kazoku

    I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS SHOW! Soundtracks, characters, music placements, atmosphere. It's perfect. It seems Yajirou was quite the bishounen before becoming a frog. Yaichirou is a cool bro too, he likes his family so much he is able to kneel before his little brother. Transformed Tengus are also recognizable by their nose.

    The scene where Benten used the folding fan and swam was so beautiful, I almost shed tears.I understand Yasaburou. The next episode preview is great. Hope the show will stay that good.

    Re: Uchouten Kazoku

    Yasaburou the fugitive, You better run if you don't want to end like your father. I wonder if the fan is really lost or if Benten took it while they were bombing the Ebisugawa family. Excellent episode again, Akadama was a funny with his pride and his reactions.

    this was the best episode yet!!! i loved the battle of the fireworks

    benten is breaking the old mans heart ... but he should know better than to expect a beautiful young woman like her to like an old fart like him

    those fans are awesome, both the raijin and the fuujin....

    it sucks that the inner parlor thing got destroyed.... lol at akadama choosing to drink his wine instead of saving the parlor

    Re: Uchouten Kazoku

    The other day a friend asked me to summarize it. I just couldn't find any word.
    I love this show, definitely my favorite of this season.

    And I can't but praise the art constantly.

    And Benten. God, Benten.

    The sea looks red,
    a surging sea of flames
    looks like the entrance to hell

    But that gives her the bonus point, in my eyes. She creeps you out. Somehow, she always manages to creeps you out. She's a dark light, sorta.

    LOL. The hot pot issue, huh?

    Anyway, I really like this series. Sadly I don't find anything to discuss >_>
