Cooking lessons were at Yuuko’s shop and the menu was never complicated and can be done even with the eyes closed…riceballs!
The lady client freaks out more as Watanuki continued to talk her into opening up and making her realize her own ‘disgusting” issue. She is despises to taste what she has cooked because she fears to know herself better, that according to Watanuki.
The next thing is, Watanuki told her more about himself and how his ordeal is so similar with hers. He deemed that it’s more scary not to know further one’s self much less being ignorant about it.
Watanuki now finally realizes how the people around him appreciates him and found him important and it was shown by the way they react to his cooking. Those very reasons are the things that might want him to strive on living.
After his award-winning monologue, he invited the lady to make the rice balls together that they may know each other well but she ran off.
In the end, instead of learning a lesson from him, he was taught instead. He grew in him the will to journey towards his true self, the find out the purpose he serves and the importance of his cooking and the people closest to him.
I was amazed how matured Watanuki was in this chapter! He sounded like Yuuko qouting her “hitsuzen” thing!
Still, there was no closure to the cooking arc and the chapter’s so short that instead of getting enlightened a bit, it made me more confused.
So much like what Quinn has observed!
I know this series’ gonna be ending soon but still…! :(
