The teacher assigns Bocchi to a group different from her usual friends for cooking class. Will she survive this? Also, will her plan to win over Kako become a success?
It’s bound to happen, but it seems that Nako, Sotoka and Bocchi is in different groups. Now, Bocchi has to work with three other girls from her class that she doesn’t know. While she struggled to talk to the other three girls, she manages to pull through. Still, she accidentally put in too much flour in the bowl and sneezed, thus it went everywhere. Thankfully, her group members didn’t get mad, although Bocchi seems distraught by this.
Thankfully, Aru is there to help save the day. Not only she has a supply of flour, but also a special bowl which is basically the cream. While Bocchi’s group worked on the pancakes, Bocchi mixed a bowl, until the other girls from her group told her what it is. Thankfully, the pancakes turned out well in the end.
As for Kako, Bocchi and her friends saw her while they feed the chickens. Bocchi eventually introduces herself and her friends. I find it funny how she tries to introduce Sotoka but instead does it to a chicken. Not only that, Kako mentions how unfortunate Aru is and Aru headbutts Nako instead. While Kako introduces herself, she still tells Bocchi and her friends of her no friends policy.
While this seems hopeless, Bocchi has one more thing to change her mind. She tries to invite Kako to her group for the upcoming outdoor class activity. While Kako declines it at first, she changes her mind after Bocchi said she is weak. Of course, I think Kako is also worried that Bocchi might end up messing up like she did with the flour during cooking class. Still, I find it funny how Kako becomes embarrassed after Bocchi asks if she liked curry. It’s expected given her harsh personality, but thankfully she defrosts a bit.
On the day of the outdoor activity, Kako have a picture taken with Bocchi friends before they start making the curry. It’s quite amazing how Kako manages to come up with a recipe before the activity. Also, she also stops Nako from slacking off as well. Still, it’s quite amazing how well it turned out in the end, given how unfortunate Aru is and Sotoka cutting potatoes as shuriken shaped. This definitely freaked Kako out.
In the end, at least Bocchi made some progress in defrosting Kako. Kako finally realizes that friendship doesn’t necessarily make someone weak. Still, it seems that she wants to become rivals with Bocchi as she wants to see Bocchi become stronger. I guess she doesn’t want to admit that they are her friends when it’s obvious. Either way, it’s a good thing Bocchi didn’t give up on her as she became friends with her.
