"A gentle breeze blows; I close my eyes
I wonder how you're doing?
"If only I had been stronger, if only I had been kinder
maybe then I could have saved you."
When this scene played I suddenly recalled those lines from やわらかい風, although I don't really know whose point of view it's from... Anyway, I really liked this scene but it was very sudden, if I hadn't obsessively read up about Keiji and Hideyoshi's side stories I would have thought it was very jarring. Also I thought Hanbei had always hated Keiji, but it seems that was not always the case? Ah I wish the second season had told us more about them.
But in the end many thanks for making Hanbei so beautiful, Production IG! And thanks for putting so much effort into drawing Osaka Castle, I was very moved by the elaborate decor.
