Haruna-“Good news! This operation will not be included in your bill Mr. Crackers.”
|So another week of zombie love~ So this week look like… I have no idea. Maybe more Kyoko?|
|Well, hello, Korean zombie desk car aka Kore wa zombie desu ka!? Are you enjoying this off the wall series as much as me? I sure hope so. I mean with characters like Chris-chan, Haruna and Seraphim running around, what more could we want? Anyway onto the review of episode three with my epic tag partner Kara! Enjoy.
Plot this week has Yuki learning to dance from the master Ayumu along with Haruna-chan.
Sorry, BUTT, I don’t celebrate national vampire ninja holidays!
Starting this episode, we follow Seraphim and Sarasvati together as they chat about Ayumu’s butt where Sarasvati openly confesses her love for his rear or “butt love” as she calls it! Just what is this girl even thinking?! Anyway the following day Seraphim is completely quiet as she takes a few random glances at Ayumu’s butt to see why her rival ninja vampire is so interested in him. Also Haruna’s Mystletainn is currently stuck in recovery mode for a while and Ayumu has a phone call with Dai-sensei about the repair process. Sadly he finds out it will take a long time; however, that does not stop Haruna from taking it apart and attempting some emergency surgery with Yuu as her special assistant to repair her magical weapon.
Haruna-“Welcome to pimp my magical weapon…today I will pimp this thing out with spinners and bling!”
Haruna-“I CAN’T WORK UNDER THESE CONDITIONS!” Ayumu-“It hasn’t even been five minutes…”
Haruna works throughout the entire night to repair Mystletainn and successfully completes the operation or does she? Because Ayumu tries to erase the students memories to clear his name of any popularity, but instead of saving his reputation, his attempt destroys Mystletainn all over again… Way to go zombie bro! Thankfully Seraphim was around to kick his ass; which magically sparkled in the moonlight for some strange reason…
Seraphim-“I must…look away…his ass is way too powerful…”
After that bit of strange fun, Ayumu goes to school and deals with his friend Orito who has been acting very strange lately. And by strange I am referring to his new found “love” for the great Ayumu, but he isn’t the only guy acting odd around him as in Anderson-kun, that random blond kid from their class…I think that mysterious character might be way into Yaoi? And naturally Ayumu runs away seeking out Chris-chan to listen to some of her drunken advice about courage. Yes sweet drunken courage for the freaking win!
Chris-chan-“The answer is easy! KILL ALL THE UNICORNS!” Ayumu-“Uh…sure…let me find a unicorn.”
While Ayumu deals with his unusual life, Yuki is alone doing some dance training with Sarasvati because Yuki is going to become a background dancer in one of her concerts, but she is struggling with this new steps that causes everyone around her to get curses and pass out from the affects. So, Haruna and Ayumu help Yuki practice her dance, however when it comes to the actual live performance, the cursed dance causes the audience to fall into a trance where they start to dance just like Ayumu, Yuki and Haruna…even Yuu and Seraphim are unable to resist the strange side effects. The episode ends afterwards with Dai-sensei interrogating Kyoko for information on the King of Night. I wonder if he will rise again. All I know so far is Kyoko desperately wants her revenge!
Seraphim-“If I had the energy, I would kill you two…” Yuki-“This is the dance of JUSTICE!!!”
Orito-“Dude…this towel is the towel of my true feelings for you.” Ayumu-“Thanks? I guess?”
Yuki-“That dance floored me so hard…” Haruna-“This stage sure has clean floors.”
Sarasvati-“Live on my sparking ass of destiny…live…on.”
Kyoko-“So, are we doing a scene from Guilty Crown?” Dai-sensei-“OH HELL NO! I AM SO OUT OF HERE.”
Kyoko-“Come back! I have to show you my greatest COOOOOL!!!”
Extra undead fun
Haruna-“Now hold still…this might hurt…kukukuku.”
I need some anti-HNNNNGGG shots stat!
Random man service shot of the week! Enjoy.
I want to be your other friend, Chris-chan.
Serasvati-“Your ass is not hot enough for me…” Yuki-“Noooooooooo!!”
OH MY GOD, THE DANCING. W-Why was Ayumu so good at it?! ( …What does it even have to do with the storyline?) Once again, Korezom just kind of… throws things in there. Sarasvati’s concert was enjoyable, don’t get me wrong, but it didn’t really serve a purpose other than prove that Ayumu wants Yuki to stay, Yuki and Haruna can’t dance, Ayumu can dance like a MOFO and Sarasvati has an extreme obsession with Ayumu’s ass. …Oh, and throw something in there about Ayumu being extremely helpful/ selfless. …So the plot isn’t advancing whatsoever (or at least that’s not what they’re focusing on), but at least the dancing is fabulous. There was also that BL scene which came out of NOWHERE. The randomness is funny for the most part, but it still seems like the flow of the story has fallen apart since the last season…
I don’t know about any of you, but I had forgotten that Haruna was a self proclaimed genius, so this episode was a reminder that she IS actually talented. Though of course, she forgot an important part during the repairs, so Ayumu is still SOL. Typical. Surprisingly enough this episode, Sera wasn’t her normal self thanks to her conversation with Sarasvati. …Does this mean that she might actually get character development? If that’s true, it would be amazing since she’s been the most static character of them all. There’s also the possibility that she was just subdued this episode to have her around without having her overshadow Yuki and Haruna, but hopefully it means character development. Character development over contemplating someone’s ass fetish… Yeah, that sounds about right for this show.
So long story short, what’s bugging me the most about this anime is just one gag after another with little to no relevance to the plot (…though I’ll admit, the gags are funny). Back when Ayumu was trying to find his murderer, the story had some kind of direction, but these days it’s just one mini event after the other. Last episode was great for Yuki’s character development, but this one was… questionable unless you count Orito’s little speech near the end. I’m still waiting on Kyoko to finally get her revenge and Chris to play a bigger role since that will mean plot progress, but until then this plot is going nowhere fast. …Maybe I’ll get over it next episode, but it’s unlikely.
Fufufufu this episode was a lot of fun this week! Why? The fantastic dancing! I almost forgot about season one when Ayumu tried to dance for Yuu, but this time he brought back some new dance moves. Maybe he trained under the great TK from Angel Beats? Anyway, zombies are great dancers and what the hell was with Yuki’s strange cursed dance? That dance is so powerful it literay makes you want to join in just ask Ayumu…I did laugh watching Yuu’s arm shaking and Seraphim fight the urge to pass out a few times! There is something hilarious when you see an anime character laying on the ground after an epic face-plant or maybe when a character suffers a nosebleed from an ecchi themed onii-chan quote?
So, yeah we had plenty of smooth moves from Yuki, Haruna and Ayumu…so just what the hell is wrong with Orito? I swear at any moment now he is going to openly confess his ultimate love for Ayumu. Not to mention Anderson-kun who is not helping matters; however, the ladies need their random BL moment with all the breast physics you can find throughout this episode so it evens out right? I did enjoy my weekly dose of DRUNKEN MOE GIRL! Yep good old Chris-chan is always around to offer some off the wall advice to Ayumu, but I am waiting for that character to do something else other than looking cute, while drunk off her ass…or do you think she is just the newest gag character in the series?
Haruna’s operation scene with Yuu was so hilarious! I loved the fact that Haruna actually played along with her for a few moments, but the reactions from Haruna were priceless to watch. So what do you think Dai-Sensei is really up to with Kyoko’s interrogation? I know Kyoko is hiding something very important about the King of Night but what? And is Dai-Sensei going to come out as this season’s big boss character?! I would kind of laugh at that, however that character doesn’t look to be “evil”; then again I really had no idea that Kyoko would get revealed as a midlevel boss from the previous season; so anything is possible especially from this series.
Soon we will run out room for all the tiny Yuu’s!
Go home master? Ayumu who are you calling master!? Probably Haruna…
