Komaba leaving the school is known since they lost the match so indeed you didn't need to be a genious to see that. Why did he left was not known though and that specific reason is not irrelevant ; that's what makes a story. Actually speaking of the financial difficulties of the farming industry is more interesting than the drama of a mother illness since it is something that is a real issue. If only Hachiken seems to be concerned by what happens to Komaba, it's probably because his friends have seen such things happen many times around them already.
All we needed to psych up this place was komaba to leave the school lol.
In any case i kinda want to see what will happen now that hachiken is thinking about this.
i am feeling all fuzzy inside. the scene with komaba's mother, the classroom and everything was so great that it made go to hokaido and help komabas family. also the thing about mikage's family cosigning the loan and her tears finally got explained but like googlez said you r the man hachiken. dont leave the reins.
They shouldn't accept the realities of capitalism, changes to the economy of food production, and what happens when you fail to pay off a loan? Interesting.
At least that's the way I see it.
That's what is called a running gag. It's not the subject by itself which is funny but its repetition.
It's because all the thing that they tell him to make money are illegal :-) the ceab solution deals with russian mafia...
Ah okay. I suspected something like that, but wasn't sure. Thought there was more to it. But yeah, the other jokes make more sense now. Like the milk dude who despises adding water to the milk tanks illegally, but thinks crab is alright. Talk about double standards.
I don't know how it is in Japan, but in California and the U.S., farmers have insurance to help cover down years. As long as they do not have too many down years in a short period of time (basically, what has happened recently), well run farms can survive bad years.
