Emergency! This anime needs more content. We can’t just have Sakura talk about her feelings for 50 episodes, that’s crazy. We need filler! We need a monkey wrench! We shall call her… Meiling. Twitter: @ASStructure Email: AnimeStoryStructure@gmail.com

Episode 15 - Secret Grandpa

3/4/2019

I mean, TECHNICALLY he’s her Great-Grandpa, but that doesn’t matter; he’s continuing the family tradition of not liking Fujitaka. With Fujitaka baking some solid cookies and Sakura making a rainbow, I think they have a shot. Sakura doesn’t capture any cards but helps Masaki (ggpapa) in accepting his loss.
