Hah, I think that Miyu-sensei’s more extensive entrance in this episode has caused a good stir in this series. Quoting Shintani’s subs, Yoshinoya is just so hot. Oh yes, she is.
Yuno woke up with a horror-themed alarm as her alarm clock had no batteries and she had to borrow one from Miyako. As she went down the stairs, a tired Miyako came down as well and said that she woke up suddenly from a nice dream. Yuno noticed that there was an envelope on the floor and it was filled with lottery tickets. Miyako started speculating on the various possibilities of this lottery stack, including kidnapping (it’s usually robbery), bribery (you use lottery tickets to bribe, not bribe the ticket) and murder (you can’t kill a lottery ticket). As they found the guy who dropped, the man gave them four tickets, and the top prize was in fact 300 million yen!
In school, they were discussing about the amount of money, and Yuno said that Miyako could buy 913 years of curry rice on three meals a day in school with that cash. Yuno then asked what Miyako would spend on if she won it, and she said she was going to have some simple construction while Miyako went into deep thinking on every single step of retrieving the cash in fear of robbery. Miyu-sensei had a special lesson, with a new girl coming in. Miyu-sensei then went into some fury of saying that the students were thinking that she was the new relief teacher, that she was going to have babies with her husband and that they were sexually harassing her. It was probably her harassing the students.
The new girl introduced herself and she was a senior, Kishi, who is now in a very prestigious university. She said she was studying filming, while Miyu-sensei added randomly that Kishi worked as a model in her holidays. Kisa showed a film to everyone that was her new work, but she showed her parents’ film being concerned with her. Eventually, she got the right one about the romance of two people. It was question time and a student asked her why she chose filming. Kishi said she was initially in love with drawing in this school, but a filming experience during the school festival made her realize how much she loved it. Kishi said she was in another production, and Miyu-sensei was part of it as a parody character of a Japanese courtesan.
As there was time, Kisa asked about the dreams of everyone. One girl said she wanted to be an art teacher, another an abstract art artist and when it came to Yuno, she started getting panicky. Miyako’s sudden dream talk on chasing a bowl of rice while holding a cuttlefish and that she could not catch up with the rice bowl saved Yuno from embarrassment. At the end of class, Yuno rushed out of class to at least talk to Kishi again, as Miyako said that she would support Yuno’s bid to chase Kishi at the sight of first love and that being the same gender was not a hindrance. Yuno caught with Kisa and asked her if it was all right not to have a dream now. Kishi told her that it was the activities that happened around her that made her found her dream, and the dream was simply waiting to be found by Yuno.
At lunch, Yuno passed two lottery tickets to Hino and Sae, as she re-accounted the man and the dropped envelope. They were then discussing about Sae’s plans to upgrade the hostel, but Yuno said that the sunlight would be blocked by the huge tower, as everyone realized how small scale Yuno thought of the house. Later that day, Miyako was carrying rubbish to the dump, as they noted how troublesome it was to without boys. Miyako said that they might find treasure and they did form a beautiful portrait of flowers in the dump.
Yuno was telling the other two girls about the dumped drawing and said it was a pity to drop it since it was done beautifully. It seemed like it was in fact thrown by a girl who had to move house due to her parents but the facts were sketchy. Yuno started turning emo, saying how someone who loved drawing so much was denied the chance to continue and someone so untalented and without dreams like her was allowed to stay in the school. Just when Yuno was going to be more emo, Miyako hit her on a rugby tackle, telling her that she was being emo as the tension of the atmosphere was released.
Miyako then told everyone about the hammock she bought in the garage sale and wanted to try it as a bed. Hino warned her that the wind might be too cold and she had no blanket to cover up. Miyako then went on a fury of parodies using the hammock including hammock skiing, pulling the fish net and something random that made no sense. Miyako then took her blanket and pillow to put on the hammock to sleep, and Hino said that it defeated the whole purpose of the hammock itself. The lottery draw had not started on tv as yet, as they talked about how much they have won before. Miyako had won tons of lottery in the supermarket on food, Sae winning 10000 yen thrice, Hino some small cash and Yuno being the worst luck girl winning absolutely nothing in any lucky draw she was in.
Sae went to buy the paper for the results and no one won eventually. Still, Hino added that it was exciting to anticipate for the results. As Yuno read the newspaper, she realized that Kishi won a special prize for her film in an award but the film’s name was “The Hostel’s wolf”. Miyako came over for a bath since her shampoo was used up, as Yuno said how impressive it was for Kishi to work for her goals. Yuno started to ask whether dreams would disappear but Miyako told her that dreams never disappeared, only whether people bothered to continue trying. Miyako said the student might have thrown the sketch after finding something she liked to do, just like Kishi. Yuno said she was glad that Miyako told her that as she switched off the lights, pulling a purple rope (yet another trick by the previous owner). However, we saw Sae being hit by a basin. Yuno wanted to check on the alarm clock as she pulled the rope again, causing another basin on Sae. Eventually, the release of the horror alarm show came…
I must say that the biggest shock of this week is that Yoshinoya has a husband. Oh god, now I am curious how her husband will be like because it is going to be such a romp. I mean, you have a maniac wife who is so interested in cosplaying and acts generally like a little child most of the time. Perhaps her husband is in fact a closet cosplay fetish person? Oh god, that is practically disturbing.
Miyako definitely steals the show in this episode. Without a shadow of a doubt, her parody acts as well as the goofy dream talk about food always work wonders to break the ice between the slightly down parts of the show. The start of the show is also hilarious, with the addition of the various scenarios of things that they could do with the lottery ticket being totally out there in terms of humor.
I must also add that I am slightly disappointed at the low concentration of Hino and Sae this episode, but it has been compensated with extensive amounts of Miyu-sensei in all her glory. Well, if she had thrown in some cosplay love and the likes, it will be the best episode ever for anything, well at least for green haired anime gal lovers, or in short greenophiles. Good job also on the calculation of curry rice, it’s pretty disturbing how they even thought about such an analogy.
Cute little episode, I enjoyed it.
