Now that the girls have achieved 9th rank status, it’s time for them to celebrate.
As expected, the girls decide to celebrate at a hot spring. When the girls undressed, Koume asks Nono to untie something. Yes, it’s a corset which allows her to reduce her tummy and waist. From there, Nono becomes interested in trying it on. With that, the girls try each other’s clothing on.
I have to admit, it’s not surprising at all to see Kon wear Chiya’s clothing. It’s not surprising since everyone knows that Kon is very close with Chiya. Also, Chiya is cute in Nono’s clothing although she feels uncomfortable in them.
As for Nono, she is adorable and almost looks like Marie, Koume’s role model. Of course, Koume is going to become jealous since she doesn’t have blonde hair. Either way, Koume looks almost like Kon, except the hair length. Nina even tries on Saku’s clothing and it looks like it’s a bit too big on her.
From the looks of it, it appears that everyone is enjoying themselves at the hot springs. That is until Nina and Saku starts drinking. The girls didn’t realize that staying in the hot springs for too long will cause them to pass out. Koume, Nono and Chiya had to take them out with Kon finally waking up after passing out.
With that, the girls try to get their belongings until they found out that they are missing. In short, the girls went searching for them. After a while, they found them with Chiya’s help. It looks like Nina placed them there so she can imbue the girls’ tools and emblems with power. I guess the alcohol and fooling around in the bath caused them to forget understandably.
With that, it’s obvious that Nina will miss her students. At least she has Saku to keep her company as the girls work harder to become a top urara. Still, it’s quite amazing that Saku reminds Chiya of the promise she made. It looks like Chiya is fulfilling that with earning her ninth rank instead. Chiya will most likely keep the promise as she continues her studies.
As a whole, Urara Meirochou is a fun show for what it is. Like most shows based on the source material that is published in Magna Time Kirara, it’s a refreshing slice of life with supernatural elements.
To me, I enjoyed the characters quite a lot with the girls trying all kinds of divinations that get them into crazy situations. Also, Chiya trying to find her lost mother while training to become a top urara with her friends is a nice premise. While Chiya finds some hints towards the end of the season, at least she is making progress.
With that in mind, I wouldn’t mind a sequel in the future to see how the girls advance in obtaining their dreams. ¶
