“It’s alright! It only saw’d through my panties!”
First week of college: SUCCESS! Anyways, onto Kamisama Dolls for this week;
The song that plays when Mahiru’s Doll moves is definitely one of the creepier ones; it mirrors her skewed personality. Hibino and Utao are, as you can guess, very hostile towards this new bitch in the bunch. Mahiru flashes her best yandere face and strikes with her Doll in a rather destructive tantrum. She easily subdues Kyoushiro’s Doll but the guys band together to get hers.
Bitches with giant robots, I feel like I’m watching Infinite Stratos again
Aki meanwhile has been taken to meet with a head of the village by Kuuko. Shocker! Turns out this guy was the one that freed Aki from prison in the first place. Before Aki can leave (or agree to help the guy) Mahiru crashes through the building, acting like the diva she is. Naturally, having two mentally unstable teenagers in the same room as giant battle Gods is tempting fate a little too much and they start exchanging blows.
Kuuko don’t like bitches interupting her srs bsns
Aki nearly manages to give her a Brazilian, but she gets the upper hand in the end. She even manages to taser Kuuko while Aki is beaten and mumbling after Kyohei. Afterwards she “gives him a special shot” so he can’t communicate with his Doll and he’s left at her mercy. She recalls, along with Kyohei, just how they know each other.
“Why do I keep getting kidnapped by hot babes? Why can’t Kyohei be this forward?”
Chibi Aki and chibi Kyohei are flying about on their dolls when they bump into chibi Mahiru. They go to investigate an abandoned cave/mine and she tags along. Naturally this goes ary and we end up flashbacking to the first scene we ever saw, the kids being attacked by GlaDos. They try to fight it off but it seems their Dolls are easily taken down. A frantic chase ensues and just when it seems the chibis have done it GlaDos bursts back into life and approaches a traumatized Kyohei. The flashback ends and everybody goes WTF that was intense! Mahiru coos over Kyohei with Aki’s body in the foreground and reveals that Kyohei was indeed the one that opened Kukuri’s left hand.
Alternate title for this episode was “Traumatized Faces”
“Kyohei is so fetch!”
Well, he has been stalking him for about 10 episodes now…
Food to feed my RAGE!
Hanazawa, why so yandere? I have to admit, hearing such a cutsie moe voice being maniacally twisted gives me great pleasure. I wonder if this is her attempt at branching out? I mean, Mahiru is psychotic, but she’s still about as moe as two kittens rolling over each other. Her tantrums were irritating, too. She has a good “diva” personality where she has to have everything her way, and finally seeing the true extent of what the three of them went through, Kyohei, Aki and Mahiru, it’s no surprise just how off kilter she is.
I’m also surprised at Kyohei, I mean he says his “mind is broken” and all that jazz but really out of the three of them he’s the more productive and leads the most normal life. You could argue that he’s not really living as such but merely “existing” but I hate that kind of crap so I’m going to stick with the former; he’s actually not doing too bad in the scheme of things.
Aki on the other hand is in deep trouble. I wonder if Mahiru plans to lure Kyohei to her using Aki as bait? What a delicious damsel in distress he’d become if that were the case! Judging by the preview he isn’t going anywhere, anyway. Exposition; now, that scene with GlaDos was pretty intense in the first two seconds of episode 1, so to see it in full was quite a ride. As usual when they show the Dolls fighting there is a real surge of panic and excitement, Brains Base surprise me every time because the animation is just so fluid but at the same time staged in a way that throws you around and involves you in the motions. I found myself swaying in my seat, actually dodging hits like I was playing some RPG, haha. It was oodles of fun.
“I’m coming to save you, Princess Aki!”
More exposition about what happened that day and Mahiru’s crazy streak continues~
