Yomi thanks everyone for coming. “Then, let’s start the class. Today, we are going to talk about a devil that hides among the crowd. Lesson 2: Devil’s Class.” On the newspaper, there is a report of a certain 12 year old junior high student who got dragged by the train to her death. Could it be that she was bullied that drove her to commit suicide. In class, a girl introduces herself as Satou Anne [guesswork from 佐藤杏] who came to transfer here from Kanagawa. “Due to my father’s work, I always transfer school.. ah.. I always wasn’t able to make friends so I hope that I can become friends with everyone here.” Everyone claps and welcomes Anne to 1-A class. Anne smiles for she is always very nervous during this time but her classmates in this class look very friendly so she is quite at ease. Sitting at her seat, she thinks that in her previous school, there are many despicable things among the girls so upon coming here, she should be able to have a good friend. Her seatmate greets her and introduces herself as Nishiki Maiko [guesswork from 西木芽衣子]. Anne is really happy for someone took the initiative to talk with her. Anne happily greets Maiko back and says that it is the first time she came here so there are still many things that she doesn’t understand so if she has some question, can Maiko please teach her.

Seeing the books and scrolls on the table, Reishou asks if she is studying hard. Yuulin says yes, Jun brought a lot of books regarding customs [/practice] and behavior in the imperial palace and harem.

[Free talk: I’ll start summarizing at the new arc. I only browsed through the previous chapters in Chinese and only know more about the character interactions and stuff rather than the koto stuff, just like Chika and the others..^^; What happened so far: After they experienced the joy and sadness of competing for the first time, knowing their rivals and the girls realizing more of their feelings for the guys during cultural festival...they found out that this is the last opportunity for Takezou and Hiro to compete for the nationals because the prelims for autumn will be for next summer’s nationals. So, if they fail and compete again in the next autumn’s prelims, the two would have graduated on the next next summer’s nationals.]
Narration: “I only wanted to take back the former days-- warm memories--.. *Satowa looks back to the time when her parents look happy as she plays the koto* It isn’t at all that I wanted to hurt you. *someone shouting, ‘What is that piece..!? It isn’t Yagegoromo at all! It’s a different piece!!’ and everyone is shock as Satowa played a different piece during the competition* I also do not want you to show that kind of expression. *her mother slapping her hand away and said that her koto is simply a lethal weapon* I..I only.. *in anguish* In the end, where had I gone wrong.” Satowa wakes up with tears from her eyes. After wiping her tears, she sits up and thinks that it has been a long time since she had that dream and lately, she didn’t dream of anything, why--.. She recalls that it was mentioned that next time, it would be the last opportunity. She thinks that it is because of that so she thought of it again. It is probably because right now, she is so happy in the koto club that she didn’t look back over it. “Like this kind of happy times, sooner or later, it will come to an end. Afterwards, I’ll once again--..” She recalls Chika shouting that he doesn’t want that, and telling Kazusa that compared to the first time he heard Satowa’s koto playing, he likes her current playing.

While walking through the corridor with Gunte, bored Taewoo says that the five tribes’ meeting is over. Gunte laughs and says that what he said seems like he just got out of school. Taewoo says that his feeling seems a bit good. Gunte says of course, because they are able to take back the plundered territory and rights to mine the back mountain. Taewoo clicks his tongue and says that it has nothing to do with the Wind tribe. Gunte says that it has since it is a huge thing for this time around, there is almost no damage to their side. The divided five tribes are united and this is something that wasn’t done during Iru’s reign. If Suwon didn’t ascend to the throne, the country would be destroyed during Fire tribe’s armed rebellion.

The other person says that Lory had went to see her mother and it is also seems like a ‘fighting like a guerilla’ and even if the appointment has been moved earlier, it is also possible that [Kyouko and her mother] won’t see each other, right. Lory says yes, it is indeed possible and if [she] calls on the phone, it is also possible that it will be hanged up and it ends like that. The other party says that it isn’t at all strange for Kyouko to think that way. “To suddenly stop her [Saena] at her work place, the chances of being able to talk with her is very high..” Lory groans. The other party says what to do for he has a very strong ominous premonition. “..what to do..” Lory says that even if he asks him what to do, they can also only leave it up to Kyouko herself. “Right now, it is also useless for us to groundlessly worry [about her]. Even if what she faces might possibly be a stone that causes her to trip and get seriously injured, right now, I also have no way of replacing her to remove this hindrance. Only this thing.. As for the aftermath, we can only wait after the outcome had come out. ..ah..? If it is the worst outcome, what then? Then, we’ll talk again at that time..”

Narration: “It would be good if I didn’t notice it. *Yuki said that she isn’t the kind of amazing person that he thinks that she is* That person’s strong back, ordinary feebleness, and weakness. *fireworks flying up the sky* I shouldn’t have noticed it. *night sky lit with fireworks* [Then,] things wouldn’t have become like this--” Yuki nervously calls out to Shizuka. To her surprise, he says that he heard what was talked about JUST NOW. <- Shou said that he no longer likes Yuki. While still hugging her, Shizuka says, “..why. ..obviously you felt ‘very sad’ but why won’t you say it out. Obviously you’re very hurt yet you’ll grind your teeth and clench your fist. This kind of thing wherein you tell yourself, ‘endure, endure’..and it definitely won’t end, right. Won’t it be okay if someone told you, ‘it’s alright’..” Narration: “—I know it clearly from the start that I and that guy are totally opposite beings. *While Yuki is seriously cleaning a basketball, Shou called out to her and asked if an alien had implanted a strange microchip inside her body.* But, I still think that anyway, we can still mutually understand each other. It is enough to just use hard work to cut down each other’s distance but-- *Recalls her grandmother telling her not to force herself and she loosens up her grip* ..it is no longer necessary to strive hard--”
