This week’s Houkago Teibou Nisshi deals with what happens if you can’t quite use the ocean for recreational fishing. Instead, the Breakwater Club scratched their fix for fishing for freshwater prawns at a man-made installation.
It’s actually interesting to learn some of the fun facts this episode as they have to explain details on how to fish under stricter conditions. For instance, the club needed to have a permit on-hand to fish in the freshwater set aside by the fishermen’s union for recreational river fishing.
There were also some interesting tidbits on provisions to take for catching prawns considering how they are cunning and stubborn enough to avoid getting stuck to the bait as easily. Ohno continued the show’s tradition of straight-up murdering their catch by going into the extra details of what it takes to clean and marinade them while they’re still alive.
On a lighter note, it was nice to see Yuuki take on a more active role in this episode by acting as a mentor for Hina as she struggles to keep her composure while she constantly loses the prawns she tries to catch. She also has a number of times where she gets the upper hand on Sayaka like when she claims the krab sticks she brought in for herself to use as bait for the prawns. Although the funniest scene had to go to Hina trying to flex on a prawn she caught seconds before it escaped, it was amusing how often we saw Yuuki whip out the fox ears this time around.
