Elma got the spotlight last episode and now it’s Kanna’s turn. What adventures did she go on? Let’s find out.
Kanna had an off-screen argument with Miss Kobayashi and she ran away…from Japan to the US, specifically New York. Dragons in Japanese media are like Golden Age Superman, they can can have as many abilities as writers want them to, like Kanna having an automatic “EN to JP” human language translator to better communicate with Muricans since Japanese is what she’d become accustomed to. As she took in the sights she got hungry. As she thought of how to get money to buy food a girl ran
Wonder how hardcore wrestling fans would react to THIS “Finger Poke of Doom”? Probably whine about it on the internet like they do most things.
As she thought of how to get money for food she saw a girl chased by mafia thugs. When she confirmed the thugs were bad she made quick work of them.
The girl introduced herself as Chloe. She’s a rich kid which reminded Kanna of a certain someone. She tried to explain the situation but Kanna wanted to play and explore. Since this was also Chloe’s first time in New York she joined her. While having a good time Kanna saw a woman from behind who looked like Miss Kobayashi. She felt homesick. As the sun set Kanna told her that she ran away from home and was ready to go back. Chloe hesitated but before she could properly answer Kanna the thugs drove by and kidnapped her. Kanna was none too pleased.
She made sure they never messed with Chloe again. Kanna didn’t seem to mind she revealed her true form to Chloe and she wasn’t too scared after recognizing the dragon’s voice. Chloe admitted she had a fight with her dad and ran away from home too. After all that happened and Kanna’s desire to go back home herself she did too. Better to have a home to go back to. The girls agreed to keep in touch, hopefully meaning we’ll get another Chloe appearance before the season finale. Would like to see Riko’s reaction. Also Kanna’s return home was precious.
This was a 2 part episode unlike the usual 3. Not much to say about Part 2. Kanna spent the day with Miss Kobayashi chilling and later exploring the town together. Miss Kobayashi learned some new things too while Kanna treasured her human mother even more than before.
Like Kanna herself this was an adorable episode. Next time Big Daddy returns. Looks like the only way to progress Tohru’s main story is by having her dad come back. That’s fine. Looking forward to it.
