Seasons Of Boys Be...

TV Series: Cast Of Characters

TV Series: Proverbs

One of the things I probably like most about the series are the proverbs that seems to be
the heart of the entire anime. All the episodes start out with these proverbs, and also ends
with them. They present a lesson and a kind of wisdom which one can only hope to someday
own. Except for the last episode, Kyoichi does the voice over for all of the opening and ending
proverbs for each and every episode.

Opening Proverbs:

The ending proverbs have only a slight revision from the opening ones. They are a sort of revelation or kinda like a conclusion. The opening is an epiphany and the ending is a realization of the meaning. It concludes the lessons that has been learned by Kyoichi and the wisdom he was able to acquire due to the experiences he underwent... In the last ep, the proverbs were narrated by all the other major characters. I took it to mean that in the end, all of them were able to possess this knowledge and they were able to share the wisdom Kyoichi procured, with him.

Episode 9 : Chapter : Autumn "Leaves" ; "Shiawase no Category"

It is said that the reason why leaves fall from the branch

Perhaps, emptiness in the heart is something similar to that...

Episode 10 : Chapter : Autumn "Solitary Cross" ; "Nemurenai yoru wo daite"

All sound has died out...
The cold, dark night gradually fills the room.
Unable to get sleep, holding on to the covers...

Feeling like I want to cry. A painful, uneasy feeling...
Yes... From the depths of my soul, a thing called
"loneliness" is coming...
