Wankun tries to talk to Oishichan’s sister, but all he can do is speak in a low voice that she can’t hear. Wankun gets embarrassed, blushes, and runs away. Bijinchan is left confused and not knowing what to do. Eventually, Wankun comes back and manages to work up the courage to give Bijinchan the black cat plushie he won at the arcade the previous day. She ends up loving it so much that she gives Wankun a hug. The night ends happily for everyone.

Culture Note: Meal Etiquette

Table manners differs extremely in different countries.In Japan, there are specific customs surrounding eating. Unlike the U.S. it is slurping while eating soup or noodles is acceptable. Also, you should never pour soy sauce directly on your food. The proper way to do so is to pour it into a bowl and dip your food.

In Japan, it is customary to pick up a small bowl and hold near your mouth while eating. However larger dishes aren’t meant to be picked up.

Before eating the meal, it’s considered polite to say “itadakimasu” which means I humbly receive or bon appetit. And after the meal the phrase to say it “gochisosama deshita”which mean that was delicious.
