|In Mr. Natsume's Room
- 6:09 PM
In the flat of Soseki Natsume, the soon-to-be author is all settled to go back to Japan. Herlock Sholmes guesses he's scared of Barok van Zieks's reaper curse but Natsume denies it. He just says Japan is just the place where he belongs. The other day he thought he saw an urchin boy on other side of the street, but it was just his own reflection in a window. Iris Wilson compliments on how cute he is which actually makes Natsume happy. He says Japanese are reserved people by nature and that there never existed an exchange who can enjoy life in foreign land surround by foreign people. But Susato Mikotoba brings up Mori Ōgai who studied in Germany. Ryunosuke Naruhodo knows him as the author of Maihime, which means "Dancing Girl" in English. Ōgai enjoyed Germany, even getting comfortable the women. Naruhodo guesses that this must be because of different personalities. Before leaving for England, Natsume was a English professor. Mikotoba tests Naruhodo about his knowledge of English while Natsume teaches it the other way around. Mikotoba explains the Japanese use the moon (tsuki) when expressing fondness (suki). Sholmes says it's a pun which annoys Natsume, Wilson says its timid art. Natsume feels like he can never surpass Ōgai, he lived in many houses before moving to the boarding house, including Baker Street. A scholar named William James Craig was nearby and Natsume liked his unique way of William Shakespeare. Then Natsume explains that "England" is "英吉利" and "America" is "亜米利加" in Kanji. The group talks about Shakespeare and Kanji, Sholmes suggest that the poet was old due to the language. Herlock Sholmes wants a name in Kanji but Naruhodo can't think of anything else that's not similar to Shakespeare. Sholmes decides on "紗兄" and Wilson goes with "愛姫", they give "黒坊" for Naruhodo due to his uniform.
Wilson suggests Natsume stays in London a little longer but Joan Garrideb actually said the same thing to him. She kept getting annoyed at how he couldn't pronounce English so she couldn't him practice riding his bicycle, the only thing he got better at was falling. He calls the bicycle a die-cycle. One day just as he was getting worse again, he hit a stone. Wilson and Mikotoba heard an about an American scholar who had a similar incident, Mikotoba suggests this could make a great story for Natsume. Sholmes suggests that they all go for a bike ride now, Natsume keeps making excuses to no avail.
