Minnie: Great news guys! Koala bear is back! And he has a lot of catching up to do. I guess this is the benefit of watching it the minute it comes out eh? I have 10 animes to watch- 9 of which I’m blogging and I don’t feel weigh down at all. Thank you for slow fansub groups! I hope Koala bear doesn’t read all the comments I made about him during his absence… ANYWAYS! Unlike the last episode of Hyakko in which I’m so-so on, I like this one a lot. You’ll see why.
Garrick: Yes, I am back. Go me.
Minnie: We start off the episode with our fabulous Torako who finds out from class rep Nene Andou or the nickname that’s been around the internet Bi-chan (you’ll see why) that she was made moral inspector for missing the first day of school (this is what happens when you get lost). Bi-chan is an interesting character because she’s very showy with her clothes. My first impression? Miss High and Mighty. Because of her job, Torako is forced to check school uniforms alongside Bi-chan, who is only participating so she has a higher chance of becoming student president. Even though these students who are not wearing the correct uniform should be punished, they are often only given a warning at best.
Minnie: The next scene goes through a list of female classmates who are not wearing the correct uniform. It is a pretty nice way to introduce the minor characters I say. First female student is Miss Delinquent, who scared both Torako and Bi-chan enough that they argue and even play rock-paper-sciccors to decide who will scold her. I must say out of the newbies so far, I like Miss Delinquent the most because of her actions, words, and character design. Next up include Miss Smiles, Miss Robot Girl, Miss Silent, Miss Giant, and the list continues. With each female student, Bi-chan seems to show more of her true colors. Out of all of them, the one who stands out the most is none other than Torako’s bestie Suzune, who is dressed for PE already. Bi-chan is finally discovered when Ayumi and Tatsuki arrive and she looks up Ayumi’s skirt. She admits to being bi right after, which is kind of dramatic and hilarious.
Garrick: Wow. I don’t know if I’ve laughed that hard for such a long period of time in a while. Firstly the delinquent, and the whole chain of things between Torako and Andou… Yeah. And my laughs don’t end there. Continuing on the characters, just seeing them made me laugh. Andou’s antics with the tall girl… ah, that made me laugh. And I’m not even mentioning Suzu’s gym outfit and the declaration that Andou’s bi. Because… well, it’s all the same thing. Hilarious to no end.
Minnie: OH NO! Torako and Tatsuki are confronted by a robot on their way to the infirmary! But… it’s controlled by Miss Robot Girl or Chie Suzugasaki who recently finished building or putting it together or something. There’s not much to say except that after Torako and Suzune saw it, Ayumi and Suzune come over and see it too. They all had the same reaction. XD All of them follow Miss Robot Girl to her club’s room (I guess?) where they learn that she wants to work for E-LECTRA, which also happens to be Tatsuki’s father’s company. Yeah. Tatsuki’s a daughter of a CEO. Fits doesn’t it? ^^;; After a bit of talking, Torako spots a robot head that can mimic phrases? Hm… now Torako wants to build a robot too…
Garrick: Oh, the turn this episode took. It’s awesome. They introduce robots?! And of course, it seems that they’ve also introduced another supporting character, Chie. The whole idea that Tatsuki’s the daughter of a CEO makes so much sense. They way she’s acted throughout the anime just totally supports that. And I swear, I totally called that Torako would want to make a robot too. It’s just in her character.
Minnie: The last few minutes of the episode is LMAO funny for me. The teacher is calling out attendance when suddenly he hears an odd “hear” after he asks for Torako. He confronts Torako only to find a robot wearing a wig similar to Torako’s hairstyle. You can bet how pissed off he was. The rest of the class are laughing at this, especially Bi-Chan and Miss Smiles. We get to see a short scene of Torako and who I assume is a male student on a date. Anyways, the teacher is furious and kicks the robot, causing it to explode much to Chie’s dismay. The very last scene is another day with attendance again. This time, Torako is here but… “HERE” says that voice again. Now, the one who is replaced is none other than Suzune! What a terrific end!
Garrick: There’s not much more I need to say. LMAO is understating it. As an episode on a whole… I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard. Ever.
Minnie: Unlike the last two episode, this one is LMAO funny and I am glad to see its spark back and running! There is a lot of precious Torako in this episode which makes me so happy since she’s my favorite character in this anime. I want to see more of the side characters as well because they are all so unique in their character designs and personalities thus far. In other words, colorful characters make me very happy. I am starting to look forward to this anime more thanks to this episode.
