Miroku played by Akanishi Jin (Anego, Gokusen 2) is soldering something in the club room, Seishiro played by Yokoyama Yu (Haikei, Chichiue-sama, Food Fight) announces to Noriko played by Kashii Yu (My Boss My Hero, Sexy Voice and Robo) that he will definitely not lose in the Go match they’re engaged in, but Noriko expresses her doubts. Karen played by Suzuki Emi (Long Love Letter, Lunch no Joou) and Bido played by Taguchi Junnosuke (Hanayome to Papa, Ganbatte Ikimasshoi) are reading letters from admirers when Karen asks Bido how to read a particular kanji Bido struggles with it but Seishiro winds up identifying it and Noriko explains it’s context. Karen puts the letter in the reject pile saying she passes on men who write difficult things. Yuri played by Minami (Battle Royale, Kaikidaisakusen) arrives with cake just as Miroku completes the portable TV he’s been building. Everyone gathers around to see his latest gadget. A news story comes on announcing the arrival of Prince Kasaru in Japan, Karen exclaims on his good looks and says if he’s a prince he must be rich. Her eye glints as she announces her intention to marry a rich man. Seishiro starts to fill in the group with the political background of the prince’s country, but the explanation is completed by Yuri when she tells the group that the prince would be living at her house during his stay in Japan. Her father and the king were college friends from Cambridge
This was my favourite episode of the drama aired to date. I’ve been complaining all along that the members are not used to their potential and in this episode they finally are, and not just once but twice when the club needs to go into action. All of the club members have an important role to play and each does in both of the instances. I won’t go into details as I want to avoid any spoilers but if you felt the same as I did I think you’ll really enjoy this episode. Aside from using the group to its full potential this episode has a little bit of everything, drama, comedy, romance, action and suspense.
