Episode 5 Summary
Maruyama is suffering from a psychic trauma since he used Sakamoto as an errand boy. He is now so scared of Sakamoto and is horrified by just a glance of him. Seeing him acting this way, Hayabusa-senpai, another delinquent student in the 2nd year requests Sakamoto to fight one on one, to teach him a lesson…!!
Episode 5 started with Sakamoto’s softball throw.
Kubota was leaning on the fence in a hidden corner of the baseball ground, expecting that his ball would not reach all the way to where he was. Sakamoto’s fast ball, however, of course hit Kubota right in his face!
Sakamoto held nose-bleeding Kubota in a weird position, tore his gym shirt apart to stop his bleeding. At his well-built muscle appearing from his torn shirt, girls’ shrill screams broke out. Kubota, who was already used to dealing with Sakamoto, just showed a bitter smile, saying “oh well”.
Hayabusa-senpai found a crowd while he was walking down the corridor. He wondered what it was about and looked at them, only to find Sakamoto showing up handsomely, pulling a line marker filled with lime powder for a gym class.
As Maruyama got reminded of his experience in the episode 3 and started throwing up, Hayabusa-senpai got curious about Sakamoto.
Kubota was having a talk with Sakamoto about his hair style, when Hayabusa-senpai showed up and said “lend me your face (come with me)” to Sakamoto.
Quick-witted Sakamoto buried his face into a clay mold once and offered to lend this cast of his face to Hayabusa-senpai.
All the female classmates jumped at Hayabusa-senpai for the clay mold of his life mask. Aina went real serious, even delivered a straight right hand to him. Maybe she thought it would be faster to knock him out than trying to grab the mold from him.
Hayabusa-senpai thought Sakamoto made a signal with his joke and considered he already ruled the whole class. He told Sakamoto to meet him after school “at the riverbed under track 2” and left the classroom.
While Sakamoto wasn’t interested in meeting him because he had a cleaning duty, the delinquent first years, who look up to Hayabusa-senpai, tried so hard to make them fight one on one by hiding Sakamoto’s shoes and ruler, to fan the flame.
As Sakamoto elegantly ignored those challenges, they decided to bully Kubota instead. When Sakamoto saw Kubota later, he had his hair shaven bald and “Hayabusa was here” written on top of his head.
To regain his friend’s identity, he went to the riverbed, but right before starting one on one, a police officer showed up to stop them, saying dueling is against the law.
Sakamoto told the police officer that they weren’t dueling but playing a pushing sumo game, and the police officer sat down to watch them.
Hayabusa-senpai just wanted to finish it up to fight somewhere else, but Sakamoto was fully serious with his burning eyes.
It started raining and a car passed by splashing water, but Hayabusa wouldn’t stop now. He even told his junior friends not to interfere. Sakamoto raised his right hand high up and started his “secret technique: standing attention”.
The two kept on fighting in the lightning. The delinquent boys grew unable to just watch them fighting, and just when they shouted “it was us who stole an important thing from Sakamoto”, a taxi arrived. Sakamoto had called a taxi with his earlier trick. Hayabusa-senpai got pushed into the taxi.
Hayabusa offered to compensate for the fight. Sakamoto accepted and asked them to accompany him to shop for groceries for dinner.
Hayabusa visited Kubota’s house with his two junior friends, and they knelt down to apologize. They brought him a bunch of wakame seaweed as a token of apology, wishing Kubota’s hair to grow fast.
Kubota invited them to have a wakame party at home that evening.
Sakamoto had a high fever but wouldn’t listen to the school nurse. He instead went to a home economics room for some green onions. “One mustn’t neglect personal health care”, he struck a pose with a negi-tie (green onion as a tie) to close this episode.
Let’s look forward to the next episode!
