Zenkichi and Akune begin their duel to decide each of their fates. Medaka, Nabeshima, and the rest of the judo club members watch as Akune flawlessly defeats Zenkichi each time. Eventually Medaka is fed up with Zenkichi losing and pleads with him to win. That moment of support is all Zenkichi needed to get a point on Akune who decided to concede defeat. The judo club team’s new captain ends up being Jounan. Zenkichi comes to the student council the next day to find Akune has become the Secretary.
|So much sparkling.|
The student council is met up by Yatsushiro, a third-year tough girl whose request is to write a love letter. Medaka assigns Akune the request as his first to fulfill. Akune decides to do the writing for Yatsushiro. He is reprimanded by Medaka telling him that it is about feelings and that he cannot write the letter for Yatsushiro. Moved by her words, Akune gets serious and teaches Yatsushiro how to perfect her writing for an entire week. Yatsushiro goes through with her love letter and Akune gets a thank you from Medaka.
The first half of the episode made me root for Zenkichi but at the end, I had to sympathize with Akune. Nabeshima may be the Judo Trickster but she did have a heart in letting Akune go to fulfill his dream.
The duel was emotion-driven. Zenkichi needed to win to keep his job while Akune needed to win to replace him. It was not until after so many takedowns that Zenkichi received support from Medaka in what I will say is the reason I just cannot lose my heart for this series. Emotion-driven or not, Zenkichi is mostly driven out of his need to protect Medaka. Not only that, having a girl you like cry over you is something I would never want. So I take what I said back, I'll continue to root for Zenkichi.
Can't resist the cuteness.
