Frustrated / defiant Tohru

Kokumono Ep 16 preview

Taking a break from ep 15. The narrative is going to be a bit of a pain. *sigh*

BTW, can anyone give me a good, descriptive word for shrimp's consistency when it's cooked well? I got as far as "firm" or "juicy" but they're not quite what I'm looking for. Hrmmm...

It seems that the ep trailer and NHK's next ep written preview are again slightly different although this time, they're much more clearly dealing with the same thing.

So the question is, is the next ep the last for this story-line? It all depends on how they decide to execute it. FWIW, the drinking scene in this ep is actually from the omake CD drama and not from the novels. There are a number of other differences as well, but I'll go into those once I finish this ep's translation. Quite frankly, I wish we could have gotten the full force of Shouka-papa's scenes with Seiran and Kouyuu rather than the abridged version. (More so with Seiran since I like him so much). :P But we did get the tsu-tsu-ura-ura tenshin shugyou comment. ^___^ I agree, Kouyuu. What were you thinking when asking Reishin such a silly question?!? ^^;
