Anime moms have the coolest jobs don’t they?
|Welcome back, moe Lovecraft fans out there; I hope you are having fun watching this crazy anime! The best part every week for me is listening to Nyaruko-san act completely insane with every passing episode, anyway enough chatter for now it is time to get down to business. Mahiro’s mom arrives and reveals she is a deity hunter. Also a certain blond “boy” finally arrives.|
Yosuga no Sora reference? fufufufu just kidding…or…was…it!?
Starting things off this week, we pick right up with Mahiro on the phone with his mother who was finally coming home, but this causes our main character to spaz out as he throws Nyaruko and Kuuko out of his house so he can clean the place up… However, the two sneak back into the house and Mahiro’s mom witnesses the three of them getting a bit rough with each other. After seeing her son form a human pretzel with Nyaruko and Kuuko, the two introduce themselves and Mahiro’s mom reveals she is a part time deity hunter… Which instantly scares the two aliens. Thankfully, Shanta-kun was there to calm things down, opening the doors for a civilized conversation between aliens and the deity hunter. Oh and Mahiro’s mom is also quite deadly with a fork just like her son.
Yoriko-“Alright, Aliens! Who wants to get forked first?” Nyaruko-“ME! OH GOD PLEASE PICK ME!”
Yoriko-“Thank you so much, tiny cute creature, you have calmed me down for now.”
Kuuko-“Please allow me to warm up dat ass for the fans.” Nyaruko-“Nooooooo!!”
Yoriko-“Fine, you get Mahiro in the morning and I’ll get him at night.” Mahiro-“Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhh!?”
In the meantime, two new characters prepare to make their grand entrances; aka Hastur and a woman with green hair named Ruuhii Jisuton. However, this episode follows Hastur a lot more than Ruuhii for now. The next morning Kuuko and Nyaruko get scared off by Mahiro’s mother for fighting each other and they head to school fast leaving Mahiro alone so he can have a special run in with Hastur, who appears to be searching for someone only to get himself lost in the process. After school, Mahiro finds Hastur again and takes him out to get some food where they magically find Nyaruko and Kuuko hanging out, but we all know they pretty much just stalked his ass anyway.
Green hair versus yellow hair, who will win this hair battle…?!
Mahiro-“Not…sure if this is a cute moe blob or wasp themed character.”
Nyaruko-“KAAAA MAAAA HAAAAA…” Kuuko-“This hand of mine is burning…”
Hamburgers in Japan will get you so high!
So, who is Hastur anyway? Easy answer! He knows Kuuko and Nyaruko, thus making him the third damn alien to invade Mahiro’s life of course. His main reason for arriving on earth is to find someone named Yoriko Yasaka aka Mahiro’s mom… I guess Hastur’s boss sent him to find Yoriko; so does this mean she works for an alien? The episode ends shortly afterwards with everyone staring in shock! Even the side “boss” character Ruuhii is shocked at this new development.
Hastur-“Sorry girls, but Mahiro is going to be my new onii-chan…” Mahiro-“OH HELL NO!”
Extra moe lovecraft
D’awwww the ultimate power of family bonding…
Sanity points I can has?
Nyaruko-“I was seriously made for this role!”
Double thumbs up, if you love Nyaruko’s expressions.
Kuuko-“I will never ever wash this pillow!” Nyaruko-“Dude…you are so nasty.”
Interesting episode this week, even though I would say it wasn’t as knock down funny as the other episodes, but it had plenty of hilarious facial reactions from Nyaruko as always. Like her face for every “yes” comment; those were some great reactions and she even lost her own sanity points. So, what about Mahiro’s mother? Anyone else feel that whole accepting Kuuko and Nyaruko into her “family” was way too predictiable? I mean of course we all have seen enough anime in our lifetime to realize she was always going to agree to let them stay. Then again she did try to attack them with all those forks! So maybe she wasn’t really open about letting the two aliens stay with them…
So what else!? I noticed this episode was lacking in the reference department versus the previous episodes or did I just completely miss them? I did crack up after I saw the car Ruuhii was driving, every time I see a DeLorean I think of Back to the future… So, who is Ruuhii anyway? I guess she is the rival of Yoriko or is she after Hastur? Either way, damn she has me really interested for the next episode. And now let me get to the next cast member to join with Hastur! I know she is voiced by the tsundere queen Rie Kugimiya, but she did not sound anything like her previous loli characters. That said, I think it is safe to say Hastur will probably come off as the “quiet” character that will obviously develop a man crush on Mahiro for some bromance action or maybe it will be like an older brother/younger brother relationship?
And finally we have the whole Yoriko/Hastur connection leaving me to question who Yoriko really works for! I will laugh my ass off if she is part of the same organization along with Kuuko and Nyaruko. Also we can finally see where Mahiro gets his awesome fork skills from. Overall, there really wasn’t a lot to actually talk about this week, but I am sure next week will give us some possible fighting with Yoriko versus Ruuhii! And of course we will have more Hastur/Mahiro bonding together in a special way…
Nyaruko works on her drifting skills next week.
Ruuhii versus Yoriko for the ultimate woman battle royal or bromance adventures with Hastur…
