Konna no Idol Janain?! 08: Toast
As the rainy season begins, Sensei notices that the girls’ hair is all messed up. The girls immediately start fixing themselves but Sensei says it’s too late to do so.
Sensei announces that she’ll change the syllabus for the day [Umika is shocked: there is an actual syllabus?!] and decides to teach them how to be late, properly late, as in the anime dojikko clumsy running late style.
According to Sensei, the most appealing thing about a schoolgirl being late to school is when she is munching down on something as she goes, and there is no more appropriate food product for a girl to stick in her mouth at this critical juncture than a slice of toasted bread.
One of the girls is forced to actually run with her bread in her mouth. Since she has made the unfortunate mistake of choosing a really fat slice (from a loaf cut into just 4 slices!) she almost suffocates while running…
For the second part of the lesson, Sensei trains the girls in the art of doing hot bath TV commercials. For this training no actual water is needed. A true idol should be able to simulate being in a hot bath at will. To show this, Sensei has Umika step into an imaginary hot bath of 55 °C degrees and act accordingly. Poor Umika overdoes it and gets scolded. It’s really hard to tell what Sensei wants… Anyway, Sensei shows the proper method, going out of her way to “splash” the “hot water” and “scald” the other girls.
Next episode will be about pretending to get along with each other, which is of course a crucial element in any idol group’s art. I hear that the show will run for 12 episodes.. Will there be a final arc???
