Mosaic Japan Episode 2 recap

Episode 2 opens with our protagonist Riichi sitting in a 'train' in front of two AV actresses who tell the story of how Galaxyz got started. Too many technical words for me but I wasn't interested in the details.

Bunch of guys enter the train and they start shooting a groping scene.

At an izakaya, Sensei who is the character above says that he has sex 3 days everyday 365 days a year. He says although he was born in the showa era, he gets to hug girls born in the heisei era and he gets 50000 yen per shot.

We transition to the cafeteria at Galaxyz where the director is interviewing aspiring AV actresses. The girl above says that she always wanted to do AV and just turned 18 yesterday. The second girl says that her first time was with the guy that her mom remarried who did iramachio (whatever that means). The third girl says that until her boyfriend graduates, she has to look after him.

 Riichi goes to the toilet but runs away in disgust when he sees them shooting an Av in there thereby destroying any empathy I have for his character.

Riichi was going to hand in his resignation letter but runs into Momoko at the elevator who tells him that up until just now, she was at the surgery room masturbating and after lunch she's going to do a 3P with the patients.

Riichi follows Momoko to the cafeteria and sits with her. Momoko is super polite and apologises for being in his way, bows her head and gets curry on her hair. He offers a handkerchief and she says zenzen sochu mo iro iro kakate desu. I have no idea what sochu she's talking about but she's basically saying there are a lot of things caught in her hair. lol

Momoko asks Riichi whether he knows that bukakke is a word that is understood overseas. Riichi asks Momoko why someone like her is doing AV. He says surely she can make it by working hard at another path. Momoko asks him, "What other path?"

Riichi responds by saying, "Something like an idol?"

Momoko tells Riichi that being an AV actress is harder than being an idol. She says that there are ten thousand AV actresses in Japan or at least in excess of 8 thousand. Out of that number, only a few become tantai (full time?) actresses. She says an ugly girl can become an idol but not a full time AV actress. A full time actress does not get jobs despite being cute but because they are cute. Momoko says that at her level she gets payed 100 000 yen (~ $1000) which is not tantai actress level. (Not sure about this one)

She says there are girls who get paid 30 000 yen one time doing some things which I shall spare the details of.


Momoko asks Riichi if he knows what the highest selling genre is and she tells him its the newbies/debut. The first one will sell the most and the numbers sold will decrease quickly. AV is a difficult world. Finally, Momoko tells the stupid Riichi not to put AV actresses together with idols! Momoko says that she is going to continue until she can sell some AVs, even to the point of not eating curry that she likes.

(I love this scene, I love Momoko and I love how Sakamoto Yuji wrote it. Now I feel like giving Mosaic Japan a must watch)

Riichi is told by the President of Galaxyz to drive two schoolgirls to some location. The girls are told not to turn on the lights and not to look at the guy's face.

Riichi notices a politician's badge on a jacket and is pissed off. He goes back to Galaxyz and finds Momoko ready to shoot a scene and interrupts the job.

Momoko tells Riichi that if he wants to do it with her, he can just join in.

Riichi sees his friends and he goes off on them with the why are you doing this? Aren't you a bus driver, teacher, beautician etc? He goes off against Sensei who is married with two kids and asks him how can he be doing AV with his former students? Get a proper job, blah blah. Rightfully Riichi gets beat up and we found out everyone in the town would be jobless without Galaxyz.

Riichi wakes up to find himself being used to serve sushi. At the end of the episode we find out that the President of Galaxyz wants to make Riichi together with the one-eyed chinese dude, the president of an uncensored AV company!

"Rightfully Riichi gets beat up [...] Riichi wakes up to find himself being used to serve sushi."

If he doesn't begin plotting a killing spree in the next episode, I'm calling bullshit on the show.

"iramachio (whatever that means)"

I think the word you're looking for is irrumatio (but you knew that already right?)

@JCS: WTF LOL, it does make sense.

JCS - Why would you go on a killing spree after 5 beautiful ladies eat sushi off you and they make you head of a JAV studio?

Anon - Nope, I didn't know that.
