Besides traditional sweets, festivals are a big part of the history and culture of Kyoto. Deaimon Episode 3 dives into one such promise made for a festival. Let’s find out more in this review!

Deaimon Episode 3 Overview

Deaimon is a slice of life, gourmet, and drama anime focusing on a Japanese sweets shop. It is based on a manga written by Rin Asano. 

The anime adaptation is developed by Studio Encourage Films, an outfit that has produced many other anime such as Etotama, Hitorijime My Hero, and Isekai Cheat Magician. The show is being produced with Fumitoshi Oizaki (A Centaur’s Life, Etotama) serving as director, Reiko Yoshida (Blue Period, A Silent Voice) supervising the scripts, and Sakae Shibuya (Girl Friend Note, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood) designing the characters and overseeing the animation.

Deaimon Episode 3 starts with an opening song themed around the episode’s main focus, just like it did in the previous episode. We hear the traditional Japanese music that accompanies the “Gion Festival”, otherwise famously known as “the Kimono Festival”. This is a spectacular event held in Kyoto and is one of Japan’s most famous summer festivals. Because of its distinguished yamaboko floats, the streets lined up with night stalls, the fireworks, the bright summer lights, and the wearing of the traditional summer kimono, this festival has often been represented in various animes. Being situated in Kyoto during the summer selling the traditional sweets, I’m glad Deaimon did not miss its opportunity and beautifully portrayed the festival as well!

We were introduced to Mitsuru in the last week’s episode. And in Deaimon Episode 3, we are presented with another cast member- Kanoko. Hailing from Tokyo, Kanoko is visiting Kyoto but seems to hate the summer weather. Then what could be the true purpose of her visit? She was the ex-girlfriend of Nagomu when he was still in Tokyo. Could Kanoko be the one Nagomu had promised to watch the festival with?

We begin Deaimon Episode 3 with a dream Itsuka is having. She is searching for her father, who abandoned her, even in her dreams. He had promised to take her to the festival but then had left her and disappeared. Talk about being a bad parent! This episode shed light on the true nature of Itsuka. Despite being mature, reliable, and confident in her actions, Itsuka is just a 10-year-old child. She is hurt by her father’s actions and is rude towards Nagomu when she thinks he is just as flaky as her father. But slowly, she warms up to him, and we can see the father-daughter bond forming between them.

This week’s episode of Deaimon dealt with the themes of miscommunication, acceptance, and courage to move forward. Kanoko and Nagomu seem to have broken up because of some major communication gaps. Even after coming to Kyoto, Kanoko did not go to visit Nagomu’s sweets shop. Timidity? Embarrassment? Who knows. But the fate is kind to them and is very grand, linking all our main casts into accepting trust amongst one another. With gentle persuasion from Kanoko and the general support and worry from Nagomu, Itsuka is also able to take a step forward, opening her heart a bit more.

The grand depictions of the yamaboko floats and folksy music of the Gion Festival build the summer vibe for Deaimon Episode 3. The animations are very summery, and we see some of our main cast in kimonos. Some animations seem to jump too much from one scene to another and were a bit crude. And while the episode flowed without any hiccup, the high point was not as high as the first episode. But still, this was one nice and breezy episode. It set the tone of the show, smooth, chill, and not too overdramatised.
