blood gets drawn: Kaisei, Shodai, Tamawashi, who came with a rain coat because he brought the kids to a nursery school in the rain

Shodai knows he must show his funny face even behind the mask.

Tamawashi: no funny face but a “fashion statement”

I'm glad some of the "levity" has returned with a little bit of the (hopefully) exaggerated pain faces coming back.

AFAIK, the affiliated press gets a sheet with the results, but they publish only a few facts

I want to look at Mitakeumi and tell him to watch the needle as it goes in. Why? It helps give you a sense of control over the process. It still hurts, but if you can mentally own it by seeing what is happening, it'll go much smoother. Oh and make sure to drink lots of water the night before and the day of the tests so that you're well hydrated, as it makes getting a vein much easier for the staff taking blood from you. It won't hurt as much either - having blood taken with a needle being wiggled around in your arm trying to get the vein is no fun at all.
