Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku Episode 9: Derailed Scandal
The entirety of this episode is Eruna and Otone trying to recruit people into their club. Eruna, as usual, comes up with dumb ideas to get people to join. She’s just making up scandals for the newspaper club to believe and interview people, and then Eruna and Otone will hold up signs in the background of the videos or photos to join their club. Like subliminal messages. It’s pretty dumb, but Eruna is very desperate. But what’s even more dumb is that Eruna still doesn’t know what the club is going to be. Also, she needs to hurry the hell up. Bimii explains that she needs to get at least one member before the midterm battles because the battles test the clubs’ abilities. So if Eruna doesn’t have her club ready by then, she’s just going to have to give up. So now with that deadline on her mind, she needs to hurry.
We have the problem of Otone. Eruna is her first true friend, and Otone is afraid that if people join their club, Eruna will make more friends and that’ll distance her from Otone, leaving her alone again. There actually have been people interested in the club, and they all have gone to Otone to ask about it. But Otone purposefully pushes them away, challenging them to a match to join. Of course, being the winner of the rookie battles, people back out. In one instance, Eruna catches her in the act and Otone shares her true feelings.
And she’s a lot more similar to Seisa than I thought. Funnily enough, when she’s sharing her feelings to Eruna, we get a short shot at Seisa. Seisa probably feels the exact same way. Seeing Eruna with Otone in the last episode, for some reason Seisa looked hurt. Seisa probably thought of Eruna as a good friend, the only person that would approach her and speak with her, but now that she’s made many new friends and is with Otone to start up her club, Seisa has been alone. She’s feeling the distance between them, and when Kurumi-meido asked if she would be sad when Eruna would leave the mansion, she said she was fine, though we can see that that’s not the case. Honestly, I thought Seisa would have chosen to join Eruna’s club. If she’s having these feelings, then I think she’ll join her club sooner or later. I was actually thinking that Seisa was going to be the third club member, and not Bimii. Speaking of which…
Bimii’s human form is super cute. What the hell. After finding a large empty classroom and claiming it as their own, Eruna and Otone are challenged by the girl from the newspaper club. Their club needs the room because their other one is crowded, but Eruna wants it anyway. So they battle, with the power of extreme embarrassment newspaper girl looks like she’s going to win. And honestly the secrets of Eruna’s life were amusing, all of them related to Shigure and how much she loved him. I wonder when the switch came to be?
Story short, Otone helps Eruna cheat and Eruna wins. Bimii arrives in his human form and officially joins Eruna’s club as a last resort, and ta da, they got the club and the clubroom. What’s the club’s name?
How the hell was this approved? I feel like everyone is just letting Eruna get her way. So, whatever, she got the club. She doesn’t know what it’ll be just yet, but she got the club. Bimii as a human is cute and everything, but isn’t this cheating? Could he get fired for this? I mean, even though he’s some sort of magical cat thing, he’s still a teacher. So this is cheating, right? And since he’s a teacher, he’ll be part of the battles too, right? So I’m guessing he’s strong? So…cheating. That’s cheating. And why is he so attached to Eruna? Out of all the people in the school, he’s always around Eruna, and for what reason? Because of her family name, which is apparently amazing, which he mentioned in the first episode but was never explained since? Is anyone else as annoyed as I am?
