The third exam begins. As usual, our dimwitted protagonist fails to notice the cameras in the bus while Kenji does. I liked Kenji a lot in this episode…his behavior in the icebreaker and the look into his thoughts at the beginning. But man, that last part of the test with the questionnaire…I would hate to be put into that situation.
There are so many ways you can read people’s rankings of each other that I’d have thought myself into a coma before writing down the first name. I’m really curious how they end up analyzing that. Not much to say about the preview…more exam stuff next week…not much I can really say about it. But with the episode content done, let’s go tangent a bit.

I’m sorry, but I just can’t help myself. I need to analyze this guy’s technique. First off, his turning. He uses his full hand to turn, rather than just his fingers like I would. This makes each motion less efficient, despite how quickly he can turn. And then we have his method.
If we look at the screenshot, he has the corner on the lowest level solved, but the edge on the middle level is not solved. This is an indicator of the basic method, known as layer-by-layer method. If it were me, I would have that edged solved simultaneously with the corner. If I had to guess, I would say his time is around 45 seconds, which is intermediate-ish level.
