The day has finally come as the Rin sets out to her destination in the morning as Nadeshiko gets into the van with their club advisor and her friends.
At last, Minami finally picks up Nadeshiko at her house. Everyone was there, including Akari. Yes, Aoi’s little name is Akari. This surprises me since nobody revealed her name despite being a smaller version of Aoi.
As expected, Rin checked out some natural landmarks while Nadeshiko and her friends look at them from the car window. Of course, Nadeshiko given her usual nature falls asleep. Besides missing the natural landscape of Izu, she missed out on experience actual wasabi ice cream, the loop bridge, the steamed buns, and more.
I find it hilarious how when Nadeshiko wakes up, she doesn’t know where she is. The funny thing is that Aoi and Akari trolls Nadeshiko by saying that she was asleep for two days. Yes, they did a lot of exciting stuff like camping without her, and they are heading back home.
Yep, it’s was funny to see Nadeshiko’s reaction as she becomes really upset that she didn’t get to camp or experience Izu. Still, it’s obvious that Aoi and Akari is lying given their expressions as Aki reveals the truth. When Rin came, Nadeshiko came up to her and asking what day it is. Lying is never a good thing, but it’s still some good fun for Aoi and Akari.
Eventually, they stopped for lunch at a burger joint and sharing their trip experiences. Nadeshiko is obviously upset over missing her chance wasabi ice cream after Akari mentioned it. Yep, the saying goes, if you snooze, you lose applies here. Hopefully now, Nadeshiko won’t sleep in a car ride and miss the good stuff next time.
Besides shopping for supplies and sightseeing various places in Izu, they eventually head to the campsite. Yes, they think they can camp on the beach on off season. Sadly, Minami failed at her research as the beach changed their policy few years ago. Yep, they face same situation Aki experienced by failing to realize how cold it was at Lake Yamanaka.
Yep, does this mean that the girls must sleep in the car again? Not really since Ena suggests asking Iida again since she lives in the area. Yes, the same couple that saved Aoi, Ena and Aki last time. Yep, they saved them again as they found a camp site for them that one of their acquaintances run. Still, it’s nice to see them help them out the second time. Minami really needs to give them a thank you gift of some sort.
In other words, the trip is not ruined. The good news is that there is extra time for Rin, Ena, and Aki to prep for Operation Shrimp. The funny thing is that Akari overhears it. After more sight-seeing, they eventually head to their destination. Still, I wonder what Operation Shrimp is. We must wait and see next time. ¶
