The long awaited translation of the bonus 13th episode of 22/7 is here at last. It of course is about the 3 newbies. Let’s see what they got.
We kicked things off with the three new girls again. We’ll meet them soon enough. We then joined 22/7 back at “that room” reflecting on the carnage from the season finale. The Wall somehow fixed the damages. Gorilla Goda and the rest of the staff don’t know how it happened either. Instead of thinking about it further the gang agreed to organize a Christmas party to celebrate their return. Suddenly the new trio appeared.
From left to right we have Mikami, Yuki and Tsubomi. Mikami is calm and soft spoken, Yuki’s an energetic tomboy and Tsubomi is somewhere in the middle. Gorilla Goda entered the room holding a familiar letter which Akane wondered why he didn’t crush it. Goda was like “We’re back to business as usual”. Our heroines were still iffy on going back to following The Wall’s orders but were like “Eh. At least the staff are cool” and ready to meet the three new members…except one.
Miyako, to everyone’s surprise, was the one who vocally questioned following The Wall’s orders again. I’ll sum up Miyako’s concerns throughout the episode right here: “We’re 8. We grew together as 8. We went through thick and thin as 8. Now all of a sudden they want to change us to 11?” It reminds me of when Alisa and Yukiho tried joining μ’s but they were like “μ’s is the 9 of us. It wouldn’t be the same.” but here it’s less the graduating 3rd years being replaced and more 3 new members joining.
At the party the trio showed off their special talents. Mikami’s is the fan dance, meaning she’s a really good dancer.
Yuki’s really good at futbol, meaning she’s a lot of stamina and is athletic.
Tsubomi is very social, enjoys social media and is a really good sleeper.
All the while Miyako tried her hardest to contain her discomfort. Sadly when the trio suggested they added tapioca into her signature okonomiyaki she could contain herself no longer.
The gang needed more juice. Miu volunteered and Nicole came along, specifically to discuss the trio (More like hint at it). Miu hoped everyone would get along while Nicole mentioned the cutthroat world of idols. However, it’s precisely because how hard the world of idols was that 22/7 should stick together, which is why she’s counting on Miu to help keep everyone together.
Hopefully Tsubomi’s is still alive (No Tsubomi character bio spoilers please). While Miyako sulked in a corner Yuki passed by on her phone. Miyako commented that the idol world “ain’t no game brah” to which Yuki countered saying “Of course it isn’t and we know it. You girls aren’t the only ones who went through Hell and back so don’t underestimate our drive yo”.
Thanks to Miu and Yuki’s reality check Miyako turned around and welcomed the new girls. During and after Miyako’s outburst she used her signature okonomiyaki as a metaphor to describe her state of mind. Good stuff.
Hopefully we’ll get a 2nd season one day.
As always Miu X Sakura moments are important.
