If there's one thing I love in a story, it's character development and interactions. I mean having a great plot and central story is great, but you've got to have the players in the play drive the point home and grow if you want the performance to be truly captivating. House of Five Leaves does this expertly in episode 2 as it has a little bit of everything, and so I was once again drawn in to deliver another review of this series I recommend to all.
The episode starts out a few nights later where we join Yaichi and Akitsu (who the girls have affectionatly taken to calling Masa-sama) finishing off a few drinks. Akitsu begins to follow Yaichi home to learn that he lives in an unregistered brothel in a rather sleezy district, and that Yaichi is incredibly popular with a good number of the ladies (my god, they put his fangirls right into the show). Akitsu leavs him to his quarters and begins to walk home while muddling over Yaichi's personality and what would lead him to live in such a place, yet act so different. Unable to figure it out and utterly distracted, Akitsu proceeds to walk into a pole he doesn't notice before somehow making it home.
