Gosick – Episode 3 – The Hares Break A Promise Under The Morning Sun

Posted on Jan 27 2011

Well everyone, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that this is the end of the Queen Berry arc. The bad news is that the single for Destin Histoire, the opening song, doesn’t come out until March. I know, I cried a little too.


Are you surprised that the old guy’s dead and Kujo is still alive? Neither am I. And then there were four. Let’s follow that nicely dressed gentleman, he seems to know what he’s doing. Nothing bad could possibly happen.

Well, I’ve been wrong before. Down to three. You can tell because Kujo checked his pulse. The lady says something about last time, which means this has happened before on the Queen Berry. Victorique then says that they need to run and hide, or they’ll be murdered too. The plot thickens.

What’s wrong guys, he just wants to AXE you a question. No? I thought it was clever. You know what makes up for my bad puns? Kujo punching the dude in the face with brass knuckles. Absolute best moment of the episode for me. Maybe I’m just a sucker for a nice bone-crunching blow to the face.

Speaking of blows to the face, it looks like they didn’t quite leave him behind, and Kujo is feeling it. He’s standing up to protect Victorique though, which is really nice of him. It’s that family man honor, I’m telling you. But honor only does so much when a fight isn’t in your favor. Any chance of getting these odds evened?

Works well enough for me. And now Kujo gets the chance to go tell Victorique that he was all heroic and stuff. I really do like the relationship that’s built between the two of them for these past few scenes. I’m pretty sure that Victorique is now my favorite loli ever. And to top it off, we go to the halfway break with a really nice image too.

Now that that’s done, we have the return of Phallic-hair Man. Wait, what did they just say? The chick really is the one behind everything? I called it. Go back and check last week’s blog, I totally nailed it. Go me. Now that we’re all done thickening the plot, it’s time to take it out of the oven and unravel the finer bits of our mystery cake. That metaphor is a bot of a stretch, but just go with it.

Victorique and whats-her-name go over the specifics. How everything happened ten years ago, how whats-her-name planned everything out just to get revenge on that axe-wielding guy and I guess all the other dead people. And how even though she was fighting for her life years ago, she still made a friend. A friend I can;t help but think looks familiar…

Alright you heard her story. Regardless of why she did it, she still killed like ten people. But as she’s being taken away, we see someone else being brought in: the maid who killed the old fortune teller in the first episode. Oh that’s why that little girl looked so familiar, it was the maid. Wait, that means I missed my chance for a ‘butler/maid did it’ joke. Oh well, always next time I guess. In the meantime, here’s this week’s shot of Victorique and her pipe.

And so once again, the day is saved. Wait, I’m thinking of something else. But darn that Phallic-hair Man, he’s taken all the credit again. Victorique’s brother is such an attention hog. Yeah, turns out Phallic-hair Man is Victorique’s half-brother. To hear the rest of the details, you really need to watch the episode yourself. And then we end with this adorable shot of Victorique asleep in Kujo’s arms. D’awww.

Well there you have it folks. The first arc is all over and done with, and I really liked the way it turned it out. Here’s hoping that the next one is just as good.


Question time: what was your favorite part of this arc? I know mine was definitely that solid punch to the face that Kujo delivered. That or just how adorable Victorique is. Make sure to tune in next for episode four: The Golden thread Cuts Through a Passing Moment

How about that explanation of why Kujo is the Dark Reaper, huh? Wasn’t it awesome? Oh wait, it never really happened. Next time? Probably not. See you then either way.

    Kujo Falcon Punch, for sure!

    Oh, Chris. He has the title because he came in the spring. I did some research of my own. This is why it’s also known as the Spring Reaper. The students are very superstitious.

      That’s just silly. Just because I’m a transfer student, it suddenly makes me the God of Death?

      • Kate January 28, 2011 at 12:08 PM

        When you’re a transfer student from another country, I guess so.

    She has a pipe…just like…


    Rakshata. :O

    • christmas4477 January 28, 2011 at 7:25 AM

      And just like Rakshata, she pulls it out every episode

  • EagleEyes January 28, 2011 at 1:10 AM

    Every character in this show looks like some one from another series o.o

    • christmas4477 January 28, 2011 at 7:26 AM

      Where have you seen Phallic-hair Man before then?

  • toyNN January 28, 2011 at 12:05 PM

    I was presently surprised by the “explanation” for the running of the hares. Though still found it odd why all those folks got onto that ship, again.

    Victorique tsundere for sure and when does Kujo have time to go to class?

    at first i found Kujo as whiny prideful semi-know it all(not as much as Victorique tho) but in this episode he really showed some balls.
    *Clap Clap Clap*
