Yakunare Mug-Cup mo Episode 6: Inspirational Road

As the big Fall contest approached Himeno still had no idea where to start but perhaps another unexpected trip could help enlighten her.

Grandma Gamer

Don’t think there’s much to add about the pottery club scene apart from what I mentioned in the intro. A cute little bonus was the reveal of Himeno’s grandma getting her idea for a meal from her online gaming buddies. Betcha she’s playing Apex Legends.

Miss Koizumi invites Himeno to a museum

The main point of the episode kicked in when Miss Koizumi, who visited the shop in the evening, invited Himeno to check out the local works museum to give her input on the soon to be introduced youth pottery section. Dad looking glum foreshadowed something.

The road to the museum was technically hidden in plain sight behind the pottery club. Because of a connection with the museum road the pottery club too was kind of a local treasure. That and the town of Tajimi is famous for pottery and other local works as we saw throughout the show so far.

Himeno taking a picture of kappa statueOn their way to the museum Miss Koizumi had some people to meet up with first and had Himeno go the other direction. During her trek she took pictures of cute kappa statues and got a great view of Tajimi. What really caught her attention though was a mesmerizing sound. It’s as if the wind guided her somewhere. Soon she’d discover where the sound came from and witness something incredible.

Himeno sees an incredible creationThere’s something I’d love to see in person were it real.

The craftsmanship in this creation was so extraordinary it left Himeno awestruck.

Himena and her classmatesHimena and her crew.

Back at the museum we got a preview of what to expect along with an introduction to the one who came up with the master work earlier. It was none other than Himena. She wrote an amusing inspiration in her diary but during an interview gave a more serious reason, “To show everyone the color and the voice of the wind”. Himeno personally got a taste of both. She was again overwhelmed by her mom’s talent but at the same time felt refreshed thanks to the sculpture. Hopefully it will help her come closer to finding her way.

Good stuff as usual.

    It’s good to see that Himeno’s anxieties are finally resolved. Hopefully she will find the thing she wants to create.

    Of course, you cannot forget that moment when Himeno compliments Naoko for knowing her stuff. Yep, she blushed before turning her head. Yep, Naoko and Himeno is strong.

    Himeno connecting to her deceased mother via the latter’s art was very touching. The sculpture is very beautiful and the sequence where Himeno encounters it is well done, seeming quite magical even.

    When it turns out Grandma is a pro gamer with impressive online ranking hahaha

    Now all I can think of is her Grandma sitting down and going ham on Apex when no one else is around.

    Nice to learn more about Himeno’s mom this week. Still really don’t like how she’s dead. Not a fan of that trope at all.

    Really cool sculpture her mom made too. I wonder how you would even begin to make something that amazing.

    Looking forward to what the girls do for the big contest coming up!

    Live action segment was great as always. So many beautiful places in Japan. I’d love to go visit one day. Also they’re always eating food and I get so hungry watching them enjoy these delicious treats.

      That I would love to see.

      Yeah. Lame trope it lame.

      From the photo it was definitely a team effort.

      Visiting Japan is on my bucket list.

      The power of cute anime girls and women eating tasty meals.
