As the band inches closer to the competition date, the band instructor tries his hardest to prepare the band. Sadly, he collapses for working non-stop. With him out of commission and Mr. Sakai, another band instructor and teacher who manages the band at a different school that the instructor happens to watch got suspended, it seems that both bands are in a tough situation.
Taking a look at this mystery, I think this one can be believable. One would think it will be odd to see him change the class seating arrangement three different times. There are some clues why. Aside from the air condition breaking down quite a few times and the change to summer uniforms, it seems that there is a student who were taking pictures with an infrared camera.
For the most part, infrared cameras are used to measure temperature or the amount of heat from an object. You probably won’t use this to take perverted pictures, but rather try to see something that the person is hiding through light or thin clothing. Given that Miss Ogawa is wearing a full suit during the summer and that summer uniforms are usually thinner, it’s quite obvious that a student, who is a girl is trying to take peeping pictures.
Given that Sakai used a cellphone camera to find an infrared camera and changing the class arrangements, it’s obvious that being very protective, especially since Asmodeus holds the trump card to subdue him. Yep, you guessed it, the picture the perpetrator has is a picture of Miss Ogawa’s back, which reveals a tattoo on her back that he failed to protect. Believe it or not, she was part of a Yakuza, which is not so surprising since she had red hair back then. Of course, in Japanese society, they look down to people who have tattoos because of it’s association with the Yakuza.
It seems that Sakai is covering for Ogawa since she is trying to reform herself by taking the suspension. Maybe he fears that Asmodeus will leak the photo, which will of course affect Miss Ogawa emotionally since she still has the tattoo that she is in the process of getting rid of, which serves as a reminder of a dark past she had. It’s such a same since she looks very attractive for a teacher.
Now that the mystery is solved and Sakai is back as he leaves the student teacher spot open with the hope of Ogawa returning someday, I guess both bands can go back to preparing for the competition. Aside from this, probably the best part of this episode is Chika herself. Besides watching her kick Haruta again, she looks cute in the school uniform she was wearing, especially with her hair in a ponytail. Sadly, this is probably the last time we will see her wear hair in one. We’ll see. ¶
