Ryoma leaves Edo to prepare for the opening of the naval academy.

The following contents was taken from fans discussion to explain the plot for this episode. The bulk is written by Angelreii and some points filled in by River, both of MashaPlus Info Forums. Spoilers alert.
Masha on board the ship... John Manjiro shook hands with Ryoma.Yes is the first word Ryoma said in English. Wonderful is Ryoma second English word.Ryoma is so excited showing the globe.Back at Chiba dojo with Jutaro & Sana. As usual Ryoma said something which upset Sana. Why was there a clash between Takechi's men?? Did Izo killed the person who talked bad about Takechi? Katsu & Ryoma off to see Yodo. Ryoma looks scared. Ryoma is still bowing & try not look up. This is the first time Ryoma face Yodo-san. Ahhh Katsu brought up about the Tosa ronin. Izo had a bad dream that he was killed ... Lucky his girlfriend was there for him. Tomi received letter from Takechi. Saying how lonely he is but also telling how about the Tokugawa. Tomi showed the letter to Otome. Yataro visited the Sakamoto family while they were having dinner. And told them he has some news about Ryoma. The ladies & Gonpei surrounded Yataro. Curious would like to know was the conversation about. Why was Yataro pleading with Gonpei about? Jutaro is pleading & bowing to Ryoma to reconsider his decision to leave Chiba dojo. Sana said out that Ryoma is leaving Chiba dojo to protect Nippon(Japan). Ryoma request to have his last duel with Sana. What an emotional farewell. Flashback between the times they had. Requested for forgiveness from Tosa lord, of course not granted. It seems Lord Yamauchi is looking for Yoshida's killer, and Takechi's name came out. Takechi is wanted in Kyoto.

Next week: The men singing ABCDE...recuriting men for navy. Lots of men. Why did Takechi collapse? Poison?


Yodo already knows Takechi ordered to kill Toyo, he just does not arrest him immediately, but will ask Takechi to pay back. Katsu asked Yodo to forgive one of his students who is danppan from Tosa (he did not tell that student is ryoma), Toyo rejected immediately, so Katsu did not disclose Ryoma is that student. But at the end, it seems Yodo realises this. After Ryoma was asked to tell his view about what Takechi did (ryoma intentionally did not use Tosa ben in that part in order not to disclose his identity), Yodo said ryoma seems to know a lot, just like he himself is also coming from Tosa.

As reported by River on the reaction of the fans, specifically the 2ch forums (Japanese viewers) on this specific episode.

    Sometimes I receive some media files or stuff about Masha that can't be publicly shared, but I can however share privately, such as concert clips, etc. I would love to share whatever I got with you, as a way of disseminating information of Masha to the masses. You probably have all that stuff if you're an experienced fan, but if you are new to Masha or does not know other experienced fans, you probably won't have most of what I can send to you. I don't send emails often, since frankly I don't get such stuff often but when I do, I will send the link if I am allowed to do so. So do join my contact list but be reminded, you're not allowed to repost/redistribute/reupload whatever I send you whether in whole or in part. Anyone interested, redirect them to my blog and ask them to join my contact list. But this is only open to those who will answer the questions in the form below accurately. If you're successful, you will receive quite a few emails since I group all links together into categorised documents. If you're not, I will email and inform why (probably answered some wrongly, such as title not in Romaji or wrong answer). Once you found the answer, please RESUBMIT THE FORM. If you did not receive my emails (whether the many materials or rejection email) within 3 days of joining, please do resend your request. Thanks for joining!
