Uchuu Kyoudai episode 12 discussion

Episode 11 discussion can be viewed here

So Mutta lied again. I'd like to check his fake calculations, but I need both measures from the odometer. I bet that number is also made up. He noticed the time as I had thought, but decided to create an elaborate story to make himself seem better than he actually is. This time around he just happened to notice the time thanks to his fascination of bald people. I guess knowing the time can ease some tension, but it's trivial information when it comes down to it.

The truth is revealed

Meanwhile on Kenji's team, Kenji is showing a great role of team leader. He naturally brought out the answer from Tomii. Appears he stayed awake to read and solve his Rubik's cube and used that to work out the time. Whether he also noticed the time on the bus is unknown, but he and Mutta were the only ones with the correct answers. It's also unknown if JAXA noticed how Mutta came to his answer, but a correct answer will grant both team members points.

A true multitasker

Serika's stomach growls after everyone is told to go to sleep. Poor Mutta is given the blame. No one would ever suspect Serika, but I wonder why they go straight to blaming Mutta. Prejudice... She can always make it up to him later.

An empty stomach

When it comes to deciding who will be be chosen, the fairest method should be used. Humans will always hold biased opinions, but they are adults so I'll have faith in them. A points system where each person receives 1-5 points for each task or day will require a discussion. It may also reveal who you hold bias for. A ballot system is probably the best option as it is anonymous and one person's bias should be outweighed by everyone else's votes. It's ok just as long as they don't vote for themselves. Getting to know each other and deciding who is truly qualified still holds the question of bias and possibly the problem of deciding at the last minute.

Big brother is watching

Loli Serika shows up again in a flashback for what her name's meaning is. Instead of having a meaning like many other Japanese names, her's has none, but instead just sounds right. She could have been  given a name with a meaning, but as soon as she was born, Serika seemed perfect. I guess meaningful names is the norm is Japan and not having a name like that is unusual.

Serika was so cute as a child
My name doesn't have a meaning

Serika is a beautiful name especially as I hold bias to her. Mutta probably holds similar bias and wants to be good friends with Serika. In Japan, it is rude to call someone you aren't familiar with by their first name, but Serika and Mutta have been together since the first test so it isn't too bad. The moment he complimented her name was the start of bring able to call her by her first name.

I love her smile

@Cely belly
As long as they don't find out, it's fine if he makes up a few lies.
