Visit the zoo, the beauty salon, and the shopping center as the Noharas gear up for New Year’s in this episode!
“The Beautiful CanCan”
Love is tough, baby.
The lovely (?) CanCan makes her debut! Will love overcome our two rivals?
In this episode, we are introduced to Misae’s best friend, Mogamigawa Keiko — or as Misae calls he, Okei. She will continue to pop up from here on out!
As I mentioned in the last post, in the hospital episode, Shin-chan confuses お見舞い (omimai, “visiting someone at the hospital”) and お見合い (omiai, “matchmaking dating”). Because of this, when he first gets to the hospital, he thinks it’s a place to pick up a date. He asks for the famous models Okamoto Natsuki, Komiya Etsuko, and Miyazawa Rie.
Happy new year, everyone!
Just a few quick notes for this episode.
In this first segment, “Gargling Prevents Colds,” Shin and Misae discuss the “Hong Kong cold.” Despite sometimes commonly being called a “cold,” what they are referring to is in fact the Hong Kong flu (as far as I’m aware).
In the preview for next week, Shin confuses the word お見舞い (omimai, visiting someone at the hospital) with お見合い (omiai, matchmaking dating).
