The rating for the 2nd episode has manage to kept above 20% which is so far the highest rating drama of the season. This would be the last episode seeing Ogata’s group and Ren’s group fighting against each other. As in this episode they have finally understand the true meaning of “nakama”.
Not much happened during this episode other than a lot of gang bashing scene (Is this really how Japanese gangster fight?) and it was predicted that after saving each other from being bash the 6 of them (Ogata’s group and Ren’s group) became friends?
And of course when they were all beat up and lying down on the floor, Yankumi came to save the day. With one against millions again, she beat them with getting one single scratch on her (which is bullshit).
Half way of the episode they showed Yankumi being all depress in Kuma’s ramen shop and that was when she got her hopes back up once she knew the girl who served her was Kumi’s wife and she’s about to have a baby as well. I like the idea how they linked back to where that girl was the girl where Kuma saved in season 1, they even show a flash back of it.
So after getting all beat up, the 6 of them and Yankumi returned school. They disappear while Yankumi was walking in front of them. The they all showed up at the field saying that for her they will play the “can kicking” game with her once.
The episode ended with Yankumi calling the rest of the class members to play the “can kicking” game.
The ending theme was the “can kicking” game, where Yankumi got the can and they all chasing after her. This was the same as season 1, the ending of it. Really brings back memories of the other 2 seasons.
