I guess there is no low that the landlord will not stoop to, it’s such a shame that Sawa can’t trample him to death after riding him down. It’s bad enough he’s taking down the school, but now he’s stealing building material and taking their lunch money. If the bastard gets strung up on a light pole I for one would spit on the corpse and let his secretary eat his rotting flesh. Still while the lesser students are already surrendering the Choir Club has rallied and recruited some allies for their glorious cause. Konatsu might be the smallest of them but she was on fire this episode getting the sewing, art, and some other club to go along with her plans. Hirohata got rolled yet again but it’s a good thing for her that Konatsu is more than willing to forgive. I hope that Hirohata repays Konatsu’s kindness and makes amends for all of her past transgressions.
Taichi has few things going for him outside of badminton, but while he can barely operate a sewing machine he is really good at garnering help. With the sewing club on board the costumes should result in something sensational. Taichi might have wanted to go behind Sawa’s back but at least he worked up the nerve to ask her. Sawa did the smart thing and wasn’t too flustered, in fact dictating the picture she gave was a brilliant move as it averted any need for Taichi to try and possibly get away with one that she would not have approved of. Taichi must be feeling elated right now, he got Sawa to cooperate, got the help he needed, and to top it off got the best shot of Sawa while giving the stalker the fourth tier shot. Taichi might be an awkward teenager, but at least he is capable of being sly. I guess there is time for Taichi to go all in with his new found admiration for Sawa, perhaps the Hail Mary Confession isn’t off the table yet.
Wakana and Naoko seem to have had a bit of bonding going on. I think I can see why Naoko became so embittered as she never had the confidence to go for a music career like Mahiru. Naoko settled for something easier and now really regrets it as the school is the verge of closing. Mahiru would always have her songs but Naoko thought that she only had the Choral Club and that song she tried to hide away. Hopefully Nao can find something to strive for now that Wakana has brought her around to face her past. I guess deep down Naoko had a fundamental disagreement with Mahiru when it came song writing and saw much of the same when it came to Konatsu’s unrelenting zeal.
Wein took the destruction of his work in stride even though Taichi should have caught it earlier or at least bothered to check. I am surprised that he remains optimistic and pulled off an all-nighter after sifting through all that refuse. Hopefully his hard work will pay off as the Choir Club attempts to have a guerilla musical, even if the rich old bastard has gotten wind of their plans, he doesn’t seem like the diligent type and seems to be leaning on a wavering principal to do his dirty work.
Shiho may yet rally the town to resist the land grab as pricey condos with no new jobs in a recession will likely result in an empty building. Just because the old bastard is rich doesn’t mean he knows shit about business as his laziness smacks of him being a trust fund baby. Next week is a show down and if the rich bastard thinks that his money will save him from Konatsu he will be in for a rude shock. Who knows maybe he will crumble after being called old and ugly. Hopefully the Sewing and Art clubs will have fun contributing to Konatsu’s epic, but if not at least stalker-kun got his picture.
