Extreme bike jumps this week
Fosh: Welcome to more Denpa! So far things are really interesting and I’m surprised there are so many cute characters! Especially with Ryuuko and Maekawa, both are really fun to watch. I still think the whole town is filled with aliens hiding as humans, but who knows? Anyway, time to review!
Ness: Man it has been such a tiresome week and there’s more craptacular things to come. I’m slightly behind on spring anime already! I could have caught up this past week but I decided that sleep and kdorama was more important. But hopefully I can catch up next week. Anyways, so how about that Denpa Onna? Another week episode of cuteness to come…
Fosh: Plot breakdown! Which mostly follows Makoto, as he explores Erio’s past as to why she thinks she’s an alien. He comes up with a way to “scare” her into acting more human. We also learn Meme forgot most of her memories of having Erio in the first place.
I loved this! It makes for some decent wallpaper.
Maekawa- “Sigh… why can’t I go on a date too?” Makoto- “Sorry, I’ve enough crazy girls after me!”
So, Makoto is adjusting to his new life and school. He even gets to go on a date with Ryuuko who shows off another side of her personality rather than the airhead side. She really enjoys the mysteries of life; she finds them fascinating even stuff like how a cell phone works (maybe Miki should give her lessons?!). I like that about Ryuuko’s character of how she’s always curious about things.
Ryuuko- “Will you accept this drink? I MADE IT MYSELF!”
Makoto- “Oh god, it tastes like battery acid!”
OMG FANG! Makoto-“It’s so…c..cute I can’t stop staring!”
After his date with Ryuuko, Makoto returns home and gets a visit from Meme. Yeah, this whole scene was strange; you could easily tell Meme wanted something from him or she was super lonely; however, I did get a few laughs with how she acted around him. She does reveal some more about Erio and warns him not to get too close to her even if he finds her attractive. That is his cousin, so yeah…
Meme- “I DEMAND A HUG! NOW!!!!” Makoto- “Are you high again?”
Meme- “Strip poker anyone?” Makoto “Hell yes! Wait a sec… Noooo! Go away, AUNTY!!”
Okay, I admit, Meme is cute when she remains calm.
During class Makoto thinks about some ideas to help Erio get over her alien fixation. Basically he wants to scare the crap out of her, while going downhill! I guess that’s one way to make someone act normal, huh? However, his plan doesn’t go as he thinks and the breaks on the bike fail him, sending Erio and himself flying into the ocean. The episode ends with Erio telling Makoto her human name! I guess somehow he got through to her for now anyway.
Makoto-“I will throw you off a cliff if you don’t act normal!”
Brakes shot! Time for extreme speed!!
Sick jumping skills there, Makoto! I don’t think the judges like the bike though.
Erio hates being thrown into the ocean.
Erio why are you so cute?! Hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggg!
Giant strawberries look great!
Meme- “Tonight I shall be your body pillow, Makoto!”
Erio- “I should team up with that Squid girl…”
I used to do the same thing during class! Well, I didn’t draw crabs…
Fosh: A fun episode this time around too, seems like we are getting some small progression with Erio and Makoto’s story. Also some stuff on Meme this week as well, strange that she has no memories of when she had Erio! I guess that will add to the mystery factor with her character. Makes me question if Meme is an actual alien or was really abducted? It could explain a bit on Erio if that is really true or not might be an interesting twist.
Also, kind of nice to see Makoto going on some friendly dates, not that Ryuuko and Makoto make the best pair; I think they are just alright together. Unless we find out Erio isn’t related to Makoto? Not that this is going to become a hardcore romance story. The whole scene with Ryuuko and Makoto at the restaurant was so funny, especially when she had to “think” about something using all those sound effects and getting her arms stuck in the air!
Now for that ending! I guess Makoto was onto something, although I wouldn’t suggest scaring the daylights out of someone to “cure them” but it did work for Erio. However, we’ll have to actually see if Erio returns to normal or continues using another mattress to cover herself up. Forgot to mention the music! Wow, it is getting good with those ending videos! I wonder if the ending will change every time? Hopefully, yes!
Ness: This episode flew by me so fast. At first there was a bunch of random dialogue and events but then finally some main story plot kicks in. I actually don’t have too much to say but I’ll try to point out some things but I’m sure that by the time that I finish getting down my thoughts from this episode, about 1 hour has gone by from being distracted by other things. But anyway, so we get a pretty cool opening! Well, maybe not that cool but the transition was very well. I’m actually liking the opening song of this series more. The song just matches so well to Erio’s eccentric character and the people around Makoto.
Even more, Makoto’s classmates are just strange! Well, we get some time with Ryouko and she showers us with her strange taste in drinks and moe attitude. To think the girl would care about her hair over getting to wear her awesome helmet? Guess her head isn’t filled with just clouds and bunnies. As well, Maekawa is just as strange. I’m unsure if Maekawa is just a cosplayer or actually working at night. While Maekawa is sort of a clutz, she feels more on the serious side but people don’t take her serious. Makoto is just the type of person who goes with the flow and changes his attitude to adjust with the person he’s around. As for Meme, I find her character to be humorous at time but then sometimes she’s annoying with her acting like a high school cute girl. WTF sparkly hair came from Meme! As well, Makoto seems to act unchanged by Meme’s advancements but I was proved wrong when after their discussion of Erio, Makoto tried to inhale the pillow that Meme laid on. I wonder, how many of us has probably done such a thing? But to get caught, now that was hilarious. Poor Makoto, he should be on the lookout.
It actually took me to watch the ending of the second episode to figure out the ET references. I didn’t know that at the end of the song that there was Makoto riding the bike in the sky. But for them to finally make the ET reference in the episode, it was bound to happen. The daring ride down the hill to see if they can fly was pretty cool. But seeing how Makoto got Erio to face the truth of things, that was clever of him but it felt too soon. Well, I just feel that the development of things was sort of rushed. Erio finally introduces herself and seems closer to being normal but we are only on the third episode! So now I am unsure what to expect and I almost feel that we can just end the series now. Well, I might feel this way also because I have no great likeness for this series. I don’t know if I like it but I don’t dislike. Guess we’ll find out more to come.
Yes, Makoto, jumping off a cliff has some downsides too and breaking an arm is one of them
More mysteries solved with Erio’s background! And of course Meme being creepy yet cute again?
