Orenchi Episode 3-4 Review: “I’ve Seen Enough Hentai To Know Where This is Going”

Orenchi no Furo Jijo Episodes 3 & 4

In episode 3 we see that another guest has taken up occupancy in Tatsumi’s bath tub. This new guest is named Takasu and he’s a country-bumpkin octopus.

Unfortunately, I found myself shipping everyone in this episode. Everyone was just absolutely darling and I loved the way that Takasu fought with Wakasa over his food. Takasu, to me, is absolutely adorable and beautiful simultaneously with his red hair and tanned skin. Even better? He’s voiced by Tatsuhisa Suzuki – voice of Makoto Tachibana and lead singer of OLDCODEX.

This episode made me quite a bit uncomfortable when Takasu decided to give Tatsumi a massage with his tentacles as a thank you. This was a very suggestive looking scene that yet again made me go ‘How gay can we make this show without it being a yaoi?’ I don’t mind yaoi and BL but I did find myself slightly shocked and confused by such a risqué scene.

The highlight of this episode for me was at the end when Takasu gets excited about the washer. Octupi like dark places and of course, Takasu got extremely excited about the spinning, dark, water filled machine. I just wanted to put him in the washer so he would be happy.

In episode 4, Tatsumi tells Takasu and Wakasa about a ghost that is rumored to haunt the park. As it turns out, there isn’t a ghost at all. The ‘ghost’ turns out to be another friend of Wakasa’s.

Enter Mikuni the jellyfish. Mikuni is a beautiful, androgynous and grateful creature that is ecological and budget friendly. Unlike Takasu and Wakasa, he doesn’t need human food to survive. He only needs water. As such, Tatsumi is perfectly willing to give Mikuni the fancy water the he requests.

Unlike the others, Mikuni doesn’t freeload on Tatsumi. He gets what he needs, shows his gratitude and leaves. That being said, it is mentioned that he cannot stay in one place for a long time.

The highlight of this episode, for me, is when Takasu and Wakasa become distressed that Tatsumi enjoys the fact that Mikuni doesn’t put a strain on his budget. Takasu offers to let Tatsumi eat one of his tentacles and Wakasa tries to fillet himself with a simple disposable razor.

If I had to rate these episodes, I would give another two fins up. There haven’t been any quality dumps or things that have thrown me off. The animation has remained consistent and the art has remained exceptional.
