The big test was coming soon and our heroines were hard at work preparing.
There was one moment worth mentioning as the girls woke up but we’ll get to it in a bit. At the office the girls tested each other during cleaning duty. Reimi and Hibiki seemed ready but Kana struggled with pharmacology. Hibiki and Reimi scheduled a study party to help her.
Worth mentioning Remi’s lovely maid Aoi.
In the intro and the study party we learned Hibiki was the oldest of six children. Another big family anime girl. I think it’s the third I came across in less than two years. No complaints of course. Because of that Hibiki was used to chaotic environments and responsibility.
The two did their best to help Kana. The next day Kana convinced them to visit a shrine to pray for success. They got a surprise kagura training. Hibiki thought about kagura being a traditional dance of purification, similar to their healing songs. She wondered if healing songs were gifts of the gods.
The day after the test. Many of us who took exams in high school and college can relate.
The trio were out of it, desperate for the test results or they couldn’t function properly. Mistress Ria had an idea. Invite them to compete in a town sports festival.
No surprise Sonia (and Shinobu) would also compete, especially after hearing Karasuma Clinic was in too. She’s ready to face the mistress but she wouldn’t compete. As she called her a coward Reimi was like “You dare mock my beloved Mistreeeeeesss!? I must break youuuuuuuuuuu!”. The trio couldn’t stop speaking in song after all the test practice, see.
Reimi and Sonia took the competition seriously while the other three not as much. As Kana tried to help Hibiki and Shinobu become fun buds Reimi and Sonia wondered why they skipped an event. Reimi’s like “No matteeer. I entered you in an event you’ll surely win Kanaaaaa.”
“Reimiii. We’ll have a long discussion about your image of me lateeeer”.
We learned Shinobu’s grandma was Ria’s teacher back in the day. That and she hoped Karasuma Clinic would keep Sonia’s ego in check with enough spankings because she knew Sonia had great potential but was still a teenager.
Team Sonia and Team Karasuma were tied. The raivarus kinda respected each other…until Kana mentioned the grand prize being a big dog plushie. Mistress Ria collected them. Reimi was fueled by love while Sonia ego to rub the plushie in Ria’s face.
What the two didn’t expect was a dark horse unleashing her true power for an upset win. Turns out Hibiki’s a great runner but there were hardly any running events so she held back. The plushie grand prize awakened her family loving instincts.
Reimi didn’t win the big plushie but in the end she got the real grand prize.
Yes. I noticed the photo in Reimi’s house. She loves the mistress very much.
The post-ED buildup to their victory was funny too. Our heroines had taken their first step to greatness.
Very good stuff yet again.
