While the festival was going on, Hachiken was in the hospital. Tokiwa found him when he went to walk Vice President in the morning and called the ambulance. The paramedics did not seem too concerned about Hachiken and this was enough for his friends to know that he’s not in serious danger. He fainted from fatigue; considering how much work he was doing in the previous episode, it’s a wonder that he didn’t spend more than one day in the hospital. But he’s young and he’ll recover quickly the nurse said. Only two people visited Hachiken during his short stay in the hospital: his homeroom teacher and his dad.

While Hachiken was in the hospital, his friends wanted the festival to be a huge success no matter what for his sake. Some of the members in the equestrian club were lost in what to do without him, but Ayame came to see the festival (and to mock Mikage and Hachiken) and they had Hachiken’s notebook with carefully laid plans in there. Mikage was not afraid to ask Ayame for help and she helped out. It is mostly thanks to her that the club held a surprise horse jumping competition. And yes, she pulled the same crap in this tournament as in the one in an earlier episode.

The days going into the school festival saw Hachiken go through some major difficulties that put his body to the brink of collapsing; he took on too many jobs: he became the budget man for the class project, worked his butt off in morning practicums, convinced the upperclassmen in the equestrian club to have a Ban’ei Race Track installed and did the work for that, he also helped Nishikawa with his club (his club is growing vegetables), woke up at 3:30 every morning to walk Vice President and to do some more work on the race track when no one else was around to help, he also had to clean the dorm because Bapu cashed in on his “I-owe-you’s”, and he was also called in by the teachers for some extra practicum work that every student must do.

The only thing that he wasn’t doing was studying, yet he remained still on the top of the class. He was caught sleeping in class at least once and the teacher allowed it knowing what he’s doing, but that didn’t stop him from marking Hachiken off for the day’s assignment. It’s a miracle that his body didn’t finally give up until the very end of the episode, on the morning of the festival. He is someone that I admire and especially his work ethic is something that I would like to have.

Silver Spoon S2 Episode 04 – Hachiken Held On

The whole episode takes place at an official horse jumping competition. Hachiken doesn’t look or feel good wearing the proper uniform; it looks like he’s being eaten by his clothes. Mikage is nervous. She has a bad track record at competitions; she allows her nerves to get the better of her, which affects her jumping. But in practice she is amazing, the equestrian club’s star ace rider.

As they were waiting for the competition to get under way, a girl whom Mikage knows approached her and Hachiken while riding a horse. She had a rich look about her; her hair was curled in that snooty anime way. She has the Laugh of Annoyance mastered. Her name is Ayame Minamikujou and she is something of a childhood friend of Mikage’s; she comes from the same area, the same elementary school. She applied for Yezo Agricultural High School, but couldn’t make it. She appears to have a spoiled personality, but in truth she’s quite honest and loyal, if a bit dumb.

Between the festival and the Freshman Wars, it’s clear that the equestrian club is more concerned with the festival. Ookawa, their senior looking for a job so that he can slack off for the rest of the school year, wants them to think about the Freshman War. They, and by they I mean Hachiken, tell him to go look for a job already and to stop coming by. This is already a running joke, but it will get ridiculous as time goes by and he still hasn’t found a job when winter comes and he still finds the time to stop by the club.

The equestrian club talked it over and decided that they want to do a sports event by having their horses jump hurdles for a crowd as a way to show off their club. But as it stands now the only people that can jump are Mikage and the club president. It doesn’t take long for the advisor to suggest the club members start learning how to jump, seeing as they all mastered the basics the next logical step is learning to jump over hurdles close to the ground to get a feel for it.

Trash can be a big problem if nobody cleans it up. At this school they have the added problem of dealing with illegal waste dumping on school grounds. This happens quite often, judging from how the teacher reacted in a calm way. While his class was out picking up trash on school grounds, Hachiken made the discovery of the year when he picked up a stray puppy living among the trash.

The girls took the puppy and cleaned him up straightway and fed him. Nobody knows what to do with the puppy because almost everyone present lives in the dorms and they’re not even sure that they’ll be allowed to take care of a puppy. Aikawa chimed in and said that the puppy requires vaccination and other shots, which could easily total 10,000 yen in the first bill and 3,000 more yen annually.

Finally we return to one of my favorite anime of all time with Silver Spoon season two. There are a few ways to start a second season and many will opt for a recap of what took place in season one. Though if the anime is an action show like Dragonball it is possible they will opt to go with an explosive scene. Silver Spoon actually does neither and decided to go with a joke.

It all started when Mikage was looking for a bra and asked Hachiken to help her find it. She said it went missing after she cleaned it and Hachiken being the big dummy that he is, thought she was talking about her bra. The bra belonged to a cow and the creepy cow club had it. They were extra creepy in this episode; they’re the same people that think cows are their girlfriends.
