Pro tip: Do not attempt to hug this girl.
|GUYS. GUYS. GUYS. KYOKO IS BACK. I don’t really have anything else to say about the episode, but the yandere magical girl is baaaack!|
|At last the moment is here! The evil magical girl Kyoko appears to have a bit of fun with Ayumu and the others or did something dramatic happen to change her life forever? I really hope we get some extra special fun with her this week before things come to an end.Plot follows Kyoko’s return to the series for now…|
Evil Kyoko? Or normal Kyoko?
Dai-Sensei-“Uh I sent you a special guest.” Ayumu-“Oh? I wonder who it could be this time…”
Kyoko-“Well well well…look who we have here.” Ayumu-“If I had a normal heart it would have exploded.”
Kyoko is displaying her big bangs this week…can you resist her!?
Yes indeed Kyoko has finally arrived to stir things up, but in a good way or something entirely different? I would say a combination of both for the most part. While Ayumu talks to Dai-Sensei on her cute paper cup phone, Kyoko pays everyone a visit. I assume Dai-Sensei let Kyoko out for some time away from magical jail, which is a good thing for her but not for the main cast…also Kyoko seems to be ready to jump Ayumu’s bones for some “extra fun” however with Seraphim around I don’t think that is a great idea for Kyoko or Ayumu right now or is it? And sure Kyoko might be a little mental, but she just wants to have a little bit of fun before she reveals Chris-chan’s weakness.
Ayumu-“I really have no idea who those two dudes are.” Orito-“Dude…worst…bros…ever…”
Kyoko-“What is she doing here! I want this to be a bloody party.” Ayumu-“EHHHHHHHHHHH!?”
So you just got out of jail for a few days, what would you want to do for your free time? Maybe catch up on the past news events? Grab some real food? The only thing on Kyoko’s mind right now is to throw a random party and who better to host this party than Ayumu? Yes she sort of forces him to get a bunch of his friends from school to form a mixer. Also I noticed that Kyoko really likes the idea of him being embarrassed around his friends, because apparently it really makes her get all excited which triggers her extreme yandere face of evil! I will admit she had me laughing every time her eyes started to glow red and showed off her teeth.
Chilling with Haruna, Yuu and Seraphim
Of course we are always ready to rock out with genius magical girl Haruna!
Yuu-“Silly Onii-chan, you can’t have the same fantasy about me all the time.”
Every girl seem to have an odd relationship with Ayumu, but how do you feel about his growing harem? I know during the first season Ayumu was blown up, insulted all the time, stabbed and even run over a few times rather than dealing with a romantic partner; however this season seems to be pushing the various relationship possibilities to the max! After all we have Yuki, Sarasvati, Taeko, and now Koyko who you can add to the list of romance partners. So what is going on with Haruna, Yuu and Seraphim during all of this? I really think each of them has a special thing they love about him and this episode showed me that some things might be different after all! Because you saw how Haruna reacted to Ayumu getting a hug and that possible kiss from Kyoko? So yeah I think it is safe to say there is something for the main girls to chase.
Love through stabbing?
Kyoko-“Hey Ayumu, why did the chicken cross the road?” Ayumu-“Uh to get to the other side, right?”
Kyoko-“Wrong! YOU LOSE, Ayumu! I hate chicken…” Ayumu-“Damn, you are sharp today.”
This shot is both cute and very creepy at the same time.
Kyoko-“Goodbye, my love! I am off to a better place…” Ayumu-“Magical girl jail right? See you in a million years.”
The dramatic ending this week was both creepy as hell and quite touching at the same time with Kyoko’s final goodbye message for Ayumu. That scene left me feeling all warm and fuzzy along with feeling freaked out with that sword sticking out of Ayumu’s back, but good god that was a very creepy way to confess to someone. However, his words from season one eventually came true about changing her life forever. So was that moment touching for you? Maybe it was more like whoa…this girl is messed up! That said I think it was kind of nice how Kyoko got to tell Ayumu her true feelings before going back to prison and how he will always remember her forever. D’awwwww we might have a possible zombie x zombie romance in the future? Or no way in hell….
Chris-chan is weak against…
Ayumu-“WHAT IS THIS CRAP!?” Haruna-“Whoa! You really are screwed aren’t you?”
Every great villain needs a weakness so what could possibly stop a super powerful magical girl in the world of Kore wa zombie? I would think it would end up being something like a potion, spell or a giant magical weapon perhaps? Sadly none of the above will work on Chris-chan. The only thing that can stop her at this point is to tickle her. Wait, tickle her? Yes I know what you are thinking, that has to be one of the dumbest character weaknesses of all time, right? Then again this is Kore wa zombie we’re talking about and in this universe you can’t really throw logic in when you have to deal with giant monsters on a weekly basis or in this case a crazy magical girl.
Extra zombie fan service
Kyoko’s yandere face will haunt you in your sleep forever!
Haruna is attempting to increase her magical powers.
Ayumu-“For a zombie girl you are quite squishy…” Kyoko-“Were you trying to sleep? My bad.”
Two words that stop most anime fans in their tracks! Twin…tails…
Kyoko-“I WILL DEFEAT YOU TONIGHT!”
HELL YEAH! Kyouko was back! …Even better, she’s kept her yandere-like tendencies. That scene with the swing, man. It’s a good thing there were no children around to see that face. Her boobs were out of control this episode as well. Just thought I’d put that out there. Though, uh, during that whole touching scene with Kyouko being sad about the length of her prison sentence and flying off in a golden beam of light, the only thing I could think of was that she uh, never held up her end of the bargain. We still don’t know Chris’ weakness. Now I’m sure Ayumu will make a big deal of it next episode doing his regular shouting routine, but it was completely forgotten about.
…At this point, I don’t even know which shipping pair I prefer anymore. Damn that hug scene was adorable (even I still don’t know the girl’s name). I even find Kyouko’s stab-the-guy-and-then-confess strategy acceptable (Ayumu totally took that like a man). I’d be happy if Ayumu went with any one of them really (hell, even Sera; she’s been rather dere as of late). …Though seeing how this whole thing is run off the basis of a harem, I seriously doubt that Ayumu would go with any one of them. Not unless DEEN decided that they were going to end this for real.
This was certainly a very entertaining episode with Kyoko’s arrival and all the crazy stuff she brings to the table as in EXTREME YANDERE FACE! But like I said earlier every time those faces appeared I just couldn’t help but grin and laugh. We also got to see another side to her a fun loving side; however it was more stalker-ish than anything in the end right? So far this series is really giving me everything I could ever want in a second season! Alright maybe not everything…I could use like twelve more episodes of awesome kore wa zombie, but hey at least we can hold out for a great ending and the usual OVA or movie treatment depending on how popular the series becomes.
Original Yuu-“It’s good to be the king…now you three start with the kissing.”
Ayumu prepares to take on his greatest challenge yet! Tickling Chris-chan…
