What They Say:
You have to start the New Year off doing something smart!

One of the things I learned when it comes to these short shows is to not really pay attention to the seasons too much, hence not batting an eye at all when it’s now a New Years episode. With it being a big day for doing things, at least for some, we do see how everyone handles it. You’re supposed to do certain things, including cleaning, but this group just wants to sleep constantly. Which isn’t a surprise considering one room is still filled with boxes after so many months. There’s some generic silliness here but also a bit of calm overall as the situation never gets intense. It has a good laid back feeling as we see the group deal with their respective chores.
Trying to start the new year right is never easy and some people just can’t handle at all., which pretty much summarizes this group completely. Well, except for Matsukichi maybe who at least tries but continues to have his luck turned against him. The holiday doesn’t really surprise here with what it does, though I’m looking forward to seeing if they actually get that room unpacked after so many episodes like that since her little sister came to visit and ended up staying. There’s a couple of good grins and smiles to be had here but no laugh out loud moments.
