Touka Gettan 22 - The only way to win is not to play
Hot on the heels of the artistically beautiful Touka Gettan 21 comes everyone's favorite rage-inducing episode, the twenty-second episode of same. Seriously, Japan's bullying problem would be greatly reduced if they made shoe lockers and gym lockers that ACTUALLY LOCKED. But the powers that be probably believe, "there are no bullies or criminal elements at our fine schools, therefore such extreme measures are not necessary." Argh. Anyway, I translated a few signs that I believe weren't translated in the TV-rips, which should shed more (horrifying) light on the situation.
Also, astute viewers will notice that this episode is now titled "Abuse" ("Gyaku" - other possibilities include "oppression" or "mistreatment"), instead of "Shadow" (Kage) as it was in the TV version. I have no idea why this is, but I first noticed when checking the preview in ep 21 -- the overall TL level in the Serin subs had improved by that point, and I certainly didn't remember them being that far off in the preview.
