Summary

 

Kaguya Sumeragi hosts a pajama party for Empress Tianzi that includes Rakshata Chawla, C.C., Nagisa Chiba an Zhou Xianglin. Tianzi is very excited and asks what they do next, to which Rakshata answers that they have love chat. Tianzi doesn't understand, so Kaguya explains that you talk about love, specifically the person you like. Tianzi asks everyone who they see themselves with, and Kaguya is first to answer with Zero. Rakshata mentions that she's glad the guys from the Black Knights aren't around, and C.C. adds that they're like kids. Chiba thinks that Ohgi is nice, but that's all he's got going for him. C.C. notes that Tamaki is crude; Rakshata states that Minami is a lolicon; Chiba thinks Diethard is a tricky bastard and that Sugiyama is a skirt chaser. Zhou asks about Asahina, so Kaguya wonders if she's interested in him. Zhou answers that she's interested in someone "different," and C.C. notes that Asahina is "different." Tianzi doesn't understand the innuendo, so C.C. explains that love takes different forms, depending on the person. Chiba cuts in and says she doesn't want C.C. spreading rumors about her countrymen, so C.C. changes the subject to Chiba and Tohdoh. Chiba instantly blushes and tries to deny that she likes Tohdoh, and Kaguya comments that Tohdoh is probably the only person in the Black Knights who isn't aware of how she feels. C.C. wonders if he does know, and when Rakshata calls him a chicken, Tianzi misinterprets that he's a bird. Kaguya explains that they mean coward, and C.C. wonders what Chiba would do if Tohdoh was a late bloomer. Rakshata comments that the idea of a 30-year-old male late bloomer makes her sick. Chiba defends Tohdoh and declares that he's not a chicken. Rakshata tells Tianzi not to get caught up with a weirdo, but Tianzi states that the Forbidden City is safe. Rakshata is referring to whatever dork Tianzi ends up liking and whispers something into her ear. Li walks in to speak with Tianzi and wonders what's up with Tianzi's outfit. Tianzi mentions that they've been having love chat and that she's learned so much from everyone. She whispers something into his ear that makes him very upset. He pulls out his sword and threatens to kill whoever told Tianzi those lies. He starts smashing things around the room, and Rakshata comments that he's the dork.

 

Commentary

 

Like the previous picture drama, this one is also set during the show's time in China. This time, Tianzi and several female members of the cast are sitting around having a pajama party. Naturally, the discussion turns to men. C.C. throws out the random revelation that Asahina is gay, but given that not much is known about him, it could certainly be true. Chiba turns red as a tomato when everyone teases her about her oh-so-obvious attraction to Tohdoh. I wonder what it was specifically that Rakshata whispered to Tianzi that set Li off. Overall, this picture drama is a few more minutes of fanservice, but it also gives a few characters their debut in the shorts.
