Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyou – 08

You can’t spell nonsense without onsen.

Sumairii here. We’ve got an onsen episode. Let us begin.

 

Rabu Rabu Onsen Keikaku

Well gee this might not have been the best idea.

Yeah this is another one of those episodes. So instead of raging about what the heck I don’t even just happened, I will instead take it all at face value. Here we go. So basically Kirihime goes to the hotsprings to get lucky with Kazuhito. Obviously no bestiality is going to happen, and moreover no romantic progress will be made, so we can be sure the whole ordeal will essentially be just like a filler. In fact, I’m wondering if this is actually true with respect to the source material. Anyway, contrary to her plan to rabu rabu with her doggy, Kirihime decides to invite Madoka as well. If you’re trying to get it on with a guy, why would you ever bring his sister with you? Who knows. But that doesn’t matter because it’s not even remotely the strangest thing in this episode. Plus, I’m sure Madoka would have found a way to show up anyway considering literally all the other characters are there coincidentally.

Don’t mind the maid.

After trying and failing to use reverse psychology on Kazuhito (don’t you dare peek on me), Kirihime attempts a more standard date. Again, she invites Madoka to go along for the ride for who knows what reason. But luckily this time the imouto is busy and Kirihime gets some alone time with her canine sweetheart. Except now the pair run into the fiery maid from last episode, who is shopping for a whetting stone to sharpen her Zapper. Things get heated, but crazy musical fighting maid runs off when she has to run errands for her master. Finally alone at last with Kazuhito, Kirihime decides to make some sweet memories by having a commemorative picture taken.

I don’t what just ah screw it

Mmmm, nope.

Now things start getting really crazy. Last episode we briefly saw a mysterious man tailing Kirihime. He shows up again, and no surprise the onsen staff start acting like hypnotized zombies. Meanwhile, Kirihime attempts the reverse psychology again (seriously, what does she expect) with the added twist that she’ll be sharpening her scissors in the bath instead of just dipping. I’m not even going to argue with that logic, so let’s continue. Kazuhito remains more interested in reading books as expected, but then killer zombie staff makes an appearance and he bursts in to warn Kirihime. Oh, and did I mention Maxi also shows up? Oh I didn’t? Well she does at some point. But who cares about her. Anyway, Kirihime is unprepared for the onsen onslaught, so our heroic hound buys her time by whacking the mindless minions in the head with some birch buckets.1 I get that she has to sharpen her scissors for them to be in tip-top condition, but did no one notice the two katana sitting above the two yari in the back? Why not just use those? Oh wait. I’m starting to use common sense and logic. Better stop that. It’s a nasty habit with a show like InuHasa.

There are so many things wrong with this image.

Also surprise plot revelation: Kirihime has been plagued with random zombie thugs attacking her in the streets. I guess that wasn’t important enough to bring up until now. But no matter. Madoka makes a flashy appearance with a new old Tuna Eater Type Zero, aka a chainsaw. She spouts some inspiring nonsense about making curry with it (how???) because that was apparently Kazuhito’s dying wish for her and then charges the zombies. But wait! Hasajirou is back in action just in time! Cue Kirihime jumping in and shredding onsen staff butt. Meanwhile Maxi is shining uselessly and Suzuna is being stepped on. Oh God did we make it to the end? Phew, looks like we did. I can barely contain my contempt.

Shining

So what all can we take away from this episode? Well, for starters if you’re trying to sleep with a guy, FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE DON’T BRING HIS SISTER WITH YOU. I mean seriously, it only took Kirihime the whole episode to figure that out. Also, always keep sharp objects on hand (properly sharpened, of course) in case of random zombie attacks because that’s going to happen. And PLEASE TELL US IF THIS IS A REGULAR THING. Chances are that’s not normal. Finally, when all else fails and you find yourself in the InuHasa universe, JUST GIVE UP. All hope is lost along with any semblance of reality. Just go with the flow like you’re tripping out from heavily abusing some ungodly mixture of substances that you probably shouldn’t have combined. Everything is nonsense and nothing hurts. Also SHINING.

Seriously though, I gave up on this episode about five minutes in so I just tried to have fun with this post. Hopefully you find it as entertaining to read as I found it to write.

    This show’s just an anime cliche blender show. Onsen, zombies, imouto, love book, Maxi, Masochist, everything.

    I actually do think that Kirihime has feelings for Kazuhito. I don’t know if she actually wants bestiality, but I think she does want cuddles and for him to love her back.

    • BlackBriar says:

      It’s obvious Kirihime has feelings for Kazuhito. The past few episodes, she’s always been talking about him cheating on her and she gets upset and sadistic whenever another girl is holding him. I’m still lost on the fact that she wants him but he’s still a dog and I doubt she wants bestiality.

    • Vespera says:

      PLEASE IF ANYBODY HAS READ THE NOVEL JUST TELL ME WHETHER HE GETS HIS BODY BACK OR AT LEAST IS TRYING TO GET A HUMAN BODY?!

      • Highway says:

        I didn’t even think that was on the table. I thought it was “be a dog until you read Akiyama Shinobu’s last book, then die.”

        • BlackBriar says:

          I thought the same at first but I bet there’s another way for him to escape being a dog and avoid dying. Already being brought back as a dog shouldn’t have been possible even if he is a book nut and wanted to read the last installment of Akiyama Shinobu’s series.

    I know this show is random but zombies suddenly coming out of nowhere takes the cake.

    Madoka is reunited with her Tuna Eater. What were the odds of that? I’d take that monstrosity and make a huge profit out of its applications. No way in hell that was ever meant for the kitchen.

    While being an unpredictable sadist, Kirihime is being more open that she likes Kazuhito. Then she better hope there’s a way to make him human again or things will look ugly.

      as the old man laying down on top of a mountain said: “every random comedy show needs zombies” U.U/
      and
      Madoka and the Tuna Eater are my favorites things in the
      show after Maxi-sama *-*
      Maxi shines! Everyone must admit it now Maxi’s got moves!

      • BlackBriar says:

        I’m curious. Who would that old man laying down on top of a mountain be? I don’t have a single clue to that.

        • AllenAndArth says:

          you don’t know???!!! How outrageous! the old man on top of a mountain is the wisest old man on top of a mountain and that’s why he’s called the old man on top of a mountain! do not take lightly his teachings U.U
