Golgo introduces this weeks rerun episode as part of the Pokémon Library and he also announces this weeks theme, The first step is a big step!(はじめの1歩は大きな1歩!). This weeks Pokémon Library rerun episode was A New Land! A New Adventure!! (新たなる大地!新たなる冒険!!) from the Advanced Generation series. A full summary of that episode is available in the episode guide. Red said the go-to line 'OK! Pokémon Library!' to start the repeat episode.

After the Pokémon Library episode aired, the Internation Division girls showed up. Shoko-tan opened a box of rice cakes that she made that looked like Golgo. Everyone was impressed with how good they resembled him. The International Division and the Adventure Division then showed their combined VTR video.

Akiyama made a Darumakka who was facing away. Obviously everyone didn't know what it was until Akiyama explained it to them. He also made Nageki by wrapping a paper towel around a red pepper and a Dageki by wrapping a paper towel around an eggplant. He also showed his Vanipeti which was just an ice cream cone with Black Beans(黒まめ) for eyes. Misaki though was crowned the winner by the judges.

That was a pretty epic Unova Bento Baba pulled out.
I never knew he could be so artistic.
And Shoko completely owned this time around! Morimoto's advice seems to have worked miracles for everyone.

I actually thought they did quite well with the Bento boxes overall. Baba did an amazing job, too bad he was disqualified though ^_^ I think I may try to make one myself one day as it certainly looked fun and its great creativity thinking of food that can be used to create the Pokemon.
