SoreMachi 2 – even life has its own formula
October 19, 2010
Episode 2 of Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru is full of domestic abuse, run-ins with the law, corporate crime, as well as suspicions about murderers. Fortunately Hotori Arashiyama is on the scene. Action, thrills, and more await!
We return to the adventures of Hotori, as she tackles her biggest case yet.
Tensions run high, and reports of disturbances proliferate throughout town. Back at the seaside cafe, Hotori has a plan to flush out the perpetrator, but she’ll need to call in a favor.
Unsurprisingly, Hotori’s plan works perfectly. She summons all of the suspects, informing them that she will reveal the culprit’s true identity.
BTW, the BGM is really fun, they use pieces that reference classic spy music during the lecturing the cop gives Hotori (starts about 6:50), briefly as Hotori escapes with Tetsuo (starting at 9:05), and during Hotori’s prosecution of Sanada (starting at about 10:40). Compare:
Also, doesn’t the figure on the right look like the bass player from the ED?
