Now that Himeno accepted Jimena’s request to solve the mystery of the mysterious tool. I wonder, what is the tool she is looking for.
From last time, Touko felt a bit down about her grandfather not recognizing her work. It’s obvious that Himeno accepted Jimena’s request to get Touko’s mind off her grandfather. I wonder, will this get her mind off her grandfather troubles? Maybe.
Believe it or not, Himeno manages to ask for permission so Jimena can visit. Yep, she is a go-getter since she visited that outlet last time. Either way, Jimena manages to sneak out of work despite having a lot of customers. She sees a strange tool on the table as she looks at other tools around the shop. The funny thing is that Mika also doesn’t even know what the tool does on the table.
Yep, Touko decides to have a guess the tool quiz. I find it funny how the girls, especially Naoko guess the uses of the tools incorrectly. The funny thing is that Naoko thinks the tools are used to punish Mika in one way or another. Of course, Jimena seems to have some idea what some of the tools are used. Not too surprising since she has some experience with pottery.
Now, we go back to the mysterious tool that Jimena saw. Naoko thinks it’s a tool to blow something at Mika when she gets loud. As expected, Mika seems annoyed, but Naoko manages to get the blowing part correct by chance. Touko reveals that the tool used for glazing. It’s a sprayer used to create specific designs, especially flowers. Of course, Jimena praises her knowledge. With that Himeno thinks that Touko shouldn’t hold back her desire to buy that bowl just because it doesn’t suit her.
On the way back, it seems that Mika has some nice bonding time with Touko. Touko revealed to Mika that she locks herself in a small place without realizing it. Hopefully now Touko loosen up a bit, hopefully she will become able to unlock her true dreams. Still, it should be interesting what she creates for the festival or whether her grandfather will finally recognize her work. We’ll see.
