It’s all fun and games until someone loses an ey- screw it. This is still fun.
…I had forgotten how much I dislike putting two episodes into one post. Aaaaaaaanyways, sorry about the delay, but RL caught up with me last week. I’m hiding from it now though xD.
So continuing from episode 4, Fear decides to join the battle because she’s selfish. Where Haruaki was struggling immensely, Fear sends Peavy flying within minutes of fighting. She tells Haruaki and Konoha to kill her if she starts acting strangely again, but they’re not going to listen to that. In the end, they all form a bond of trust pretty much forgetting all about Peavy.
However, Kirika is outside the house and gets captured as a hostage. Peavy uses Kirika to lure out Fear and after Fear comes outside, Peavy loses it, goes on about how Cursed Objects led her family to ruin and she says hates Fear for saying such human-like things. In her rage, she cuts Kirika anyways, causing Fear to almost lose sanity again. However, Haruaki and Konoha come out of hiding inside one of Fear’s objects and attack.
Two words: School Days.
Kirika saves them as well because she didn’t actually die. Peavy gets heavily injured during this battle. She starts freaking out even more and has hallucinations about Mummy Maker still being alive and such. She collapses (after being strangled) and Kirika explains that she merely knocked Peavy out. Kirika’s clothing conveniently falls off then and it turns out that she IS the bondage wearing person from earlier episodes. She takes out something that looks like a memory card from Dance Time and calls it an Indulgence Disk. She has no idea what it is, but apparently it’s related to Fear. … How she even knew it was there, I have no idea.
The next day, Kirika explains that her clothes are cursed. She calls them Gimestorante’s Love and apparently it was created by a sadist (big surprise there) and cursed by the person who was tortured by the sadist. It gives it’s wearer the ability to never die from physical wounds (convenient!), but in place, Kirika will die if she ever takes it off. Also, she isn’t wearing it by choice.
…You tried to kill her with a giant drill. Yeah, I’d say she probably figured it out from that.
Kirika is not their enemy, but she is the one who caused Peavy to kill Mummy Maker and was the person who was creeping Haruaki that one night. She was going to kidnap Haruaki to keep him safe, but decided against it because of Konoha and Fear’s reactions. Also, she is part of an organization. Not the same one as Peavy, but one dedicated to studying Cursed Objects instead of destroying them. Her motives? She wants to help them out because she’s the Class President. Right.
As for why she’s in the organization even though she doesn’t want to be, apparently her older brother …created it? I didn’t quite catch that. Later, Fear somewhat recognises the Indulgence Disk and has Haruaki insert it. Yeah. A ton of sexual innuendo there, but Fear was in box form the whole time xD. Afterwards, Fear can’t summon one of her curses so it’s a good thing.
It’s totally what it looks like
The episode after that involves Fear searching for a Cursed Object doll due to a request from the Chairman. Fear wants to do everything by herself to help lift her curse and they run into a Cursed Object-turned-human named Sovereignty Perfection Doll, who thinks humans are annoying (she is also sucking out their spirit energy for some reason). They also run into some pink haired girl named Shiraho who is the doll’s owner.
Sovereignty doesn’t want to go back with Shiraho, so she chants some Engrish and a bunch of stuffed animals come alive and attack. Konoha notes that Sovereignty is only attacking the school for some reason and Sovereignty (…there has to be a way to shorten that name) gets away. Shiraho turns out to be extremely clumsy. Also, her father was the one who locked Sovereignty in a case and took her away from Shiraho, probably making Sovereignty think that humans betrayed her.
Outside while searching for Sovereignty, Haruaki, Shiraho and Fear talk. Apparently all Haruaki wants to do when he finds/catches her is just add her to his harem let her live at his house while she works on removing her curse.
The next day, people are still collapsing and Sovereignty calls out Haruaki. He tells her that her curse can be lifted if she joins them and give his usual “You can change if you try!” speech. However, Sovereignty says that not everybody want curses lifted and walks away. Suddenly there’s news about another person collapsing who has big boobs and glasses. I wonder who that could possibly be.
2011: The year of girl’s heads being censored
At last Kirika’s position on this whole thing has been revealed. I wasn’t expecting them to throw in ANOTHER organization into the mix or have Kirika as the one who was stalking (and almost kidnapping) Haruaki. That’s pretty close to yandere behaviour there. Also, she’s pretty much set up as a fanservice character because of the clothes she’s forced to wear, but at least she has a pretty good reason for it. Not only because she can’t take it off, but the whole immune to flesh wounds thing just gives her an excuse to have her clothes constantly cut off. And on the bright side to all the fanservice haters out there, compared to some heroines out there, Kirika is actually covering a lot of her skin. It could be a lot worse. …Though you would think that not being able to remove her clothing would probably create some hygiene issues…. Yeah, I’m just going to stop talking about this now.
I have some mixed feelings about the Indulgence Disks curing Fear’s curse. For one, no weapons= no insane Fear. Plus the whole thing just seems TOO CONVENIENT. I mean, she got the disk from a weapon Peavy was using. Something isn’t right there (plus episode 2, Peavy seemed to know what an Indulgence Disk actually was. Though that might explain why she didn’t want to use it). We don’t even know the purpose of the Disks yet either other than they conveniently solve Fear’s problems. Yeah, I can just tell that something is going to go wrong there. Though I guess this does finally give the storyline some direction now that Peavy is …. Where? I don’t even know where Peavy went. I think Kirika’s took her or something. I guess this will now turn into a find a cursed object, find an Indulgence Disk type thing, though you can almost guarantee that Fear’s problem won’t be solved anytime soon since she has 40 something torture devices. … Though that part with Haruaki inserting the Disk was hilarious. (On a side note, I hope Fear has a giant pair of scissors as a torture device. Yanderes and scissors always prove to be a fun combination.)
I wasn’t too fond of episode 6 since it was borderline slice of life again. (…But not really). Though if Haruaki somehow makes this work, then he will get no only one, but TWO new members to his unconventional harem. …Not sure if want. I mean, Konoha and Fear are awesome female leads, but Shiraho is… kind of useless. She seems like the type of character that would more likely kill someone by accidentally pushing them down a flight of stairs through clumsiness as opposed to cutting their arm off with a guillotine. Though episode 2 proved that this anime likes to troll, so maybe she has a hidden side to her. I also liked that Sovereignty (which is still a painful name to type) said that not everyone wants to get rid of their curse. It’s about time that someone went up against Haruaki’s extreme optimism. This show was getting too lighthearted for me since I’m really in the mood for watching yanderes cut things up and Mirai Nikki isn’t coming out fast enough for me xD.
Preview: Will Haruaki add to his harem? And just how many limbs is Peavy going to lose before she finally gives up?
