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.
Shuurei and Eigetsu, as usual, continue to be inundated with cleaning the lavatories and polishing shoes, as well as taking care of large amounts of paperwork and calculations. And the two continue to be on the receiving end of various pranks and bullying by the experienced officials. However, while their fellow examinees initially looked at them coldly, they start to rethink things as the two refuse to be defeated by the harsh treatment they receive. At that time, a rumour starts to spread that Shuurei had apparently cheated to pass the National Exams.
Things are extremely busy with cleaning lavatories, polishing shoes and taking care of paperwork. I have to admit feeling a bit defeated by it all. No, that's no good Shuurei. You can't give up so easily on the dream that you'd only just realised!
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?!? ^^;
