Well, Nana is a kendo prodigy. Don't remember if it was mentioned in the anime, but in the novels they explain that the reason Nana was adopted by the grandfather was because she was the best at kendo out of all her sisters.

And the rosary once belonged to Rei, one of the best at kendo presently. I can see why Nana might be interested in it.

?? Wasn't that obvious from looking at the charts though? Or by keeping count of who won and lost in each round.
Or by seeing Rei consoling her team after the defeat.

Thumbs up

I really have fun watching this episode.

Glad that Mami finally has her own petite soeur.
Hidemi Takachi, who we first saw in eps. 3 of the OVA, is the then nameless junior reporter who reported to Mami and the rest that she interviewed Kanako and that she doesn't wat to be Yumi's little sister. Even then i was rooting for the character to be Mami's soeur, since she has the aggressiveness and the initiative to be the next editor of the Lilian newspaper.
Hidemi seems more calm and reserved than the very excitable Mami or the very sneaky Minako though.
We saw her again at the OP where Touko and Mami opens the door of the Rose mansion, along withe other Junior reporter in the OVA.

Btw. What happened to Tsutako. She doesn't seem to be doing anything substantial in this series compared to the previous three seasons. In fact i don't remember her talking at all.

I've been hoping Tsutako gets a soeur as well. Actually, I was hoping she would be the one to get one out of the tea party. Ah well. Hopefully we'll see that soon, and we'll be introduced to Mami's as well.

I really like the part when Yoshino was practicing what to say to Eriko. Funny!

Yumi trying to cover up for Yoshino was also cute.

Seems like we're going to see more of Nana in the coming episodes. Can't wait for Rei to meet Nana. I wonder if their gonna pull a kendo match between the two. Lol

I'm not sure if their going to show that substory.
Spoiler for series:


They seem to focus more on how Yumi gets her soeur and how she would deal with Sachiko's graduation.

Yeah, the anime basically cut from a scene of Rei winning to Rei consoling the team. For those unfamiliar with how kendo works, it's a little confusing. I'm sure we've all seen Bamboo Blade so we know how it all works, but just saying they could have clarified it a bit more. They did in the novel.

If you're that good at Japanese, you could always help Saki translate it for the rest of us. I know I'd appreciate it if I could read more of the story. Not sure how she'd take an additional translator working on it, but it couldn't hurt to ask.

Offtopic: I'm only good at translating English into Tagalog (and vice-versa) whenever I have the time.

From Baka-Tsuki:

"Incidentally, I'm not really looking for another translator, at least not for the time being. Call it selfish, or arrogant, or whatever, but I'm relatively confident at this point that I can power through all of MariMite by myself, which would keep the style the same, throughout."

He says that but he actually wants more love, so pay no heed.

Up until Seki's 4 month long break, I was ok with having a single translator. Now though, with the long break, and relatively slow release schedule, I'm thinking more then one additional translator is needed. Style is much less important then the ability to read it sometime this century.
