In My Senpai Is Annoying Episode 6, Futaba’s overprotective grandfather, Mr. Igarashi, appeared at the scene and became a love rival with Takeda.
Kodoani.com – In My Senpai is Annoying, Futaba Igarashi has worked hard to make a name for herself in the office, and has managed to make friends with many supportive friends and colleagues who care about her. However, Futaba doesn’t like to be patronized or treated like a child, and not only does her colleague Harumi Takeda annoy her, but also her rowdy racing grandfather, Mr. Igarashi, who arrives in Episode 6.
Futaba loves her grandfather, but she also wants to succeed in her life and career without her overprotective grandfather watching her every move and trying to fight for her. When Mr. Igarashi arrived in Tokyo, not only did Futaba get in trouble, but Takeda also had to find a new opponent.
In My Senpai is Annoying episode 6, Futaba and Takeda realize that they have the same birthday and so they exchange bouquets as gifts at a florist shop. That’s when Futaba’s grandfather, the tough-talking Mr. Igarashi, arrives on his bicycle, indignantly claiming that Takeda received a present for Futaba before he could. Immediately, Mr. Igarashi becomes overly protective of his niece, and he and Takeda confront each other over who is more important in Futaba’s life, and who should really be the protector and fan of the number. 1 of her. The two men argue over beer afterward, while the exasperated Futaba tries to demonstrate how unbelievably obnoxious they are. When Mr. Igarashi and Takeda crossed the street again later, they resumed their verbal battle immediately.
Later, Futaba spends the day on vacation with her friend Natsumi, much to Mr. Igarashi’s panic when he is unable to contact her. Grandpa imagines Futaba on a date with Takeda, and decides between them himself and understands Futaba’s heart better. Igarashi doesn’t get any real achievements, but he tries his best anyway, even going to see Your Name in theaters, which at least proves how diligent and caring he can be. Even when his protective feelings are misplaced, Mr. Igarashi values his granddaughter’s safety and well-being, just like Takeda, if not more. But that wasn’t enough to stop him from igniting their feud again, though they eventually spoke to each other that evening.
Mr. Igarashi explained Futaba’s story and made it clear that, ever since he was a teenager, Futaba was a stubborn and independent person who didn’t want to rely too much on others and become a burden. For Futaba, the scrutiny is not only frustrating, but it also prevents her from having a chance to prove to everyone, including herself, that she can take care of herself. Futaba clearly shows her independent personality and she takes pride in her abilities. Mr. Igarashi and Takeda both deeply admired this about her, and bonded over each other’s mutual respect for Futaba. The feud ended, but their protective feelings remained.
A trio then began harassing Futaba, until Takeda and Mr. Igarashi threatened them, uniting into a team to keep Futaba safe. Those guys ran away, but Futaba was grateful for his help. Also, she’s happy to see her grandfather and co-worker finally getting along, and the three of them decide to go out to eat together, proving how far they’ve come in just a few days. Nothing could stop Takeda and Mr. Igarashi from worrying about Futaba, but they were able to control their emotions somewhat and let Futaba live his life without being overwhelmed by tutoring for too long. They finally found a balance.
