Well, that’s basically the only way it could end. Dera’s been here since the beginning, so it has to be hard to rip him away from the district. He’s trapped there forever (evil laughter)…sucks to be him. How does he even expect to return home in his current state anyway? He can barely move anywhere.
Anyway, random series where nothing happens. Kind of expected, though. Nothing really stands out to me. Honestly, the main selling point of the show is probably Dera…and if he annoys you like he annoys me, then the show probably doesn’t give you much. Not saying he’s a bad character…he’s just not the kind that I would like.
Wait…when did Dera regain his normal appearance? Where was I when this happened? Did I miss an episode? Curse you, time skips! Anyway, Tamako finally finds out what the song was…those sorts of things are usually part of the ending of a series, but I guess the song wasn’t that important. Randomly, some stuff with Anko…she and Mochizou can suffer with their lovesick hearts together. Maybe being Mochizou isn’t so much suffering
Anyway, next week maybe some more Midori as she enjoys the new power of being captain of the baton club? They looked like they were putting up some sort of sign or something…a school festival? I would have expected some more indication, like the next episode being titled “School Festival is Here” or something.
Dera is busted…so he is a robot bird after all…why else would he have a “communication function”? Well, it looks like we might have a character that can serve as a check for him…it’s about time. That guy just does whatever he wants too much. Now he will feel the fear!
So if Choi is planning to stay until the communication function is fixed, I would interpret that as meaning she will stay until the end of the show (since it’s coming up pretty soon). I wonder if her apparent affection for the prince will come up in the search for the bride. What did she notice about Tamako at the very end of the episode? Is she really still the target?
Wait…the projector eyes give real time images? And suddenly someone related to the prince is coming to visit Dera? So the logical conclusion…is that the eyes are two-way and they’ve been watching events through Dera this whole time. That explains how this new girl knows the thing about the guardian.
So maybe next week, we’ll finally learn all about Dera…still holding out for robot bird (then he can have 3 forms for the final boss fight!). Well, I’m glad the projector eyes finally played a role…they were definitely suspicious. New character next week…wonder how long she’ll stick around…
The obligatory beach/pool episode. Sigh…I didn’t want to think that Tamako was the one Midori was after…can I convince myself that she just admires her and there’s no love there? Maybe if I repeat it enough times. It looks like she’s willing to give Mochizou his own shot…even if he’s too cowardly to actually do something. Being Mochizou is suffering.
Honestly…getting help from Dera? This guy is desperately in need of assistance. But anyway…I’ve been wondering a bit about Dera. What if he’s actually lost track of time and the prince he keeps referencing is already an adult and married? It’s possible if he’s actually a robot bird. The theory isn’t founded on anything…just a random thought I had. Anyway, next time…ghosts?
Not as much of Dera in this episode (it’s like he was just standing around somewhere all episode)…basically all Anko. I don’t blame her for her attitude towards her family…I don’t understand the fixation with mochi either. Dunno…can’t classify this episode as particularly funny in any way…suppose this would be one of those moe episodes.
I feel kinda bad for Mochizou there…Tamako is way too oblivious. I mean, Anko straight-up ran into the house in her embarrassment and refused to come out. That dude’s got no chance at getting his feelings across. Even if he confesses, she probably won’t notice (future episode, maybe?). Anyway, next week is the obligatory beach episode?
I really want to like this bird…it’s just not happening. The other characters in the show are interesting enough, but the bird just annoys the crap out of me. He’s a good catalyst…I admit the stuff this week with Shiori probably wouldn’t have happened without his help. He’s just not as funny as I think he’s supposed to be. Mochizo needs to investigate the projector-mode incidents more in my opinion.
I thought Shiori’s stuff was alright, though. I’d say I understand how social awkwardness can come across as being a more negative or indifferent attitude. But now she gets to join in on the antics. Based on the preview, the next episode looks to be Anko-focused. We’re almost done introducing all the characters, it seems.
So yeah…Valentine’s Day happened. Buuuuuuut that’s about it. Was I missing something? Because this episode just didn’t seem like that much for me. All I got was the return of the projector eyes on the bird, which didn’t do more than confirm that it was a recording, not that he was making live communication with his prince. Doesn’t give me any more confirmation that the bird’s a robot or anything.
I get the feeling I was supposed to notice something with Midori…but I dunno. I didn’t really pick up on anything. Though she was the only one not to react to the bird’s projection and she thanked Tamako for the bird’s help…that’s pretty suspicious. Either way, next week looks to be the introduction of a new character or something…we’ll see.
