Kodoani.com – The following contains content for Do It Yourself !! Chap 3
Do It Yourself!! is a good anime series of Fall 2022, exploiting themes of “cute girls doing cute things” and even the subtle theme of found families. This is the story of goofy but hardworking high school student Yua Serufu and her daily adventures with the DIY club. Now another girl has joined the team.
The DIY club needs more members, and in Episode 3, Rei Yusaku’s beloved woodworking club got there. An American transfer student named Juliet Queen Elizabeth VIII shows up, but this hot tsundere shares Miku’s perspective on Miku’s futuristic thinking on technology at first. Yua and Rei must convince this new girl to accept DIY methods.
Episode 3 of Do It Yourself !! starting with Juliet’s intro, with her being a classic tsundere, everyone knows what she likes but it’s not going to be easy to admit it. Juliet may have a good heart, but she also has a callous, impatient, and rude personality, and she doesn’t have much interest in the DIY club at first. Yua and her friends find it strange that such a person transfers to their ancient school, but Juliet doesn’t bother to explain. The brilliant but moody 12-year-old instead makes fun of the DIY club, echoing Miku’s point that DIY woodworking is inefficient and outdated. Rei personally does it and fights Juliet, sending the young girl away. Right now, things are tense and Yua doesn’t know what to do. Yua is an easygoing girl who likes to keep people together as friends, but for now, this challenge is beyond her. She has to wait for Juliet to come by herself.
However, Juliet is not a cause astray. She and Miku both turn down DIY work in favor of modern technology and computers, but unlike Miku, who is completely devoted to modern technology, Juliet has a personal history with DIY work, for it. sentimental value in her eyes. She and her dear mother used to practice woodworking together and that, combined with Juliet’s loneliness in Japan, means she’s more receptive to the DIY club style first impression.
Sure enough, Juliet gives the club a second chance when they invite her back to their shack, and there Juliet proves her skills with a drill and screw. Juliet and the girls make up, and then Juliet becomes the club’s fourth official member, meaning the club only needs one more member to become legit. Juliet is of course still a sly tsundere, but she’s finally showing the -dere side of her personality, and that’s sure to pave the way for some new friendships, especially with Yua.
Episode 3, on the face of it, seems to be just a regular “here’s a new club member” episode, and it even adds a third tsundere character to match Rei Yusaku and Miku/Purin. However, Juliet, now nicknamed Jobko, is much more than that. This episode has a found family theme, even if it’s rather subtle and not the main focus of the anime, and that’s what makes Episode 3 stand out. For the girls of the DIY club, this is more than just a way to pass the time or build wooden furniture. This is an opportunity to come together as friends, sisters with shared passions, and the strength of friendship and acceptance is the glue that holds them together. That’s true of Takumi in Episode 2, and true of Juliet/Jobko now.
Episode 3 gives Jobko a “found family” perspective on all of this, beyond Yua and Takumi’s feelings. This is really a matter of blood for Jobko, who combines woodworking with her dear mother, who is now an ocean. Jobko feels terribly lonely as a transfer student in a foreign land, and she even mixes up the two schools and ends up enrolling in the wrong one. Jobko even cried from loneliness in Episode 3, but not for long.
For now, the girls at the DIY club can be her new big sisters who accept her for who she is. It is true that Yua’s mother is supportive of her daughter’s hobby, but for Jobko, woodworking truly means family, and with this found family, Jobko can finally feel like he truly belongs. about here. The DIY club is now her home away from home in every way. Without a doubt, Jobko will from now on be an enthusiastic and hardworking DIY member which, interestingly, can put her at odds with Miku. Time will answer.
