So I felt a little tired this week. I wanted to do other things and didn’t feel like blogging, hence why this week’s Mug-Cup is late. Well here I am so let’s get to it
To be honest there isn’t much to delve deeply into this episode but since I was asked to cover it by some let’s make it quick. The day of the competition had arrived. Three of our four heroines were pumped. Himeno though just wanted to see how things would unfold. She didn’t think her ceramic cushion would win but Naoko told her to be more enthusiastic, asking her why she worked so hard on it.
She remembered it’s for dad, partially to gift him with something special but also to earn his praise like he praised her late mom’s work. As the day drew closer she had a nightmare and even daydream causing her to worry over it more than intended.
It’s finally time. We saw Mika’s and Touko’s entries. Impressive as expected with Touko’s of a grand quality. As we already know her training was strict to the point she became a perfectionist but not by choice. Mika’s and Touko’s work got special recognition but Himeno’s only a passing mention.
Speaking of training the judges were on their way. Touko the girls hide with her because one of the judges was her grandfather, someone she respected but didn’t want to get too involved with when it came to pottery. Another judge, the former pottery club advisor took notice of Himeno’s work compared to others who seemingly scoffed at it. This made her more nervous.
She had a feeling she’d lose, especially after seeing all the other incredible entries but hoped to get SOME recognition to show dad her work had merit. We’ll see how things turn out next time but because it’s the finale expect a series G-View as usual rather than me talking about the last episode.
