A Whiskey Away Season 1 Recap
Miyo, nickname Muge, is an unconventional and determined tween/teen who tries to keep a smile on her face despite the predicaments she faces. For example, her mother unobstructed her when her father and mother broke up. Yet, with her dad remarrying, she now wants to proclaim herself. But, while that darkness materializes in the background, Miyo’s primary focus is Hinode.
Who is he? Well, her crush, to get close to him, she made a deal with a cat essence so that she could become a cat. Thus she gets to be close to Hinode and not be required to deal with him being disinclined or unable to deal with Miyo openly articulating her affections.
But, the path to winning over Hinode as a human gets more challenging and problematic as it becomes easier to do so as a cat named Taro. So there originates a point where Miyo contemplates living life as a cat. This conclusion would be perpetual and mean losing so much to gain the affection of one boy.
Other People Have Issues As Well
Whether we’re talking about Kaoru, Miyo’s stepmom, her dad Yoji, her mom, Miki, or Hinode, everyone has a life that matters outside Miyo. Even Kaoru’s cat, Kinako, has her problems. We highlight this for it expands Miyo’s world beyond her and allows you enough of a taste to see people beyond her as intricate.
Prime example, while in a place called “Cat Island,” Miyo happens to a woman who left her children and finished her, we get to understand why Msssss strength has left. Together with that example is getting to see Hinode’s family life and how the passing of his father has left him with so much accountability that pursuing what he wants and expressing his requirements is thought-provoking. So to see Miyo so open in public stirs up the kind of envy which makes him both admire and dispute hate her.
