Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko – 09

Baseball fun

Welcome back to more fun with Denpa Onna! After that previous episode showing more of Meme, it’s time to catch up with Ryuuko, Erio, Maekawa and Makoto. Nothing else happening for me except for recently reading manga of Ichiban Ushiro no Diamaou, Toaru Kagakua no Railgun and a few chapters of Nichijou. Really nice mangas so far on all three. Anyway solo reviewing episode nine of Denpa now! Enjoy the review.

Plot this week follows our normal cast of characters Makoto, Erio, Maekawa and Ryuuko with a few new side characters getting introduced as everyone plays baseball. We also meet a very strange person dressed up as an astronaut, the mystery person also claims to be an esper from another planet!

Ryuuko- “Awesome! Now I can stalk you forever, Makoto.”

We start off with Makoto exchanging phone numbers with Ryuuko and Maekawa, which makes Ryuuko a bit jealous. That girl is ALWAYS jealous over every little thing and even Erio. Anyway, Maekawa recruits Makoto to play baseball with her father and the various shop owners versus the other town people. After a short chat with Maekawa and her awesome tunafish cosplay, he meets the pitcher named Hanazawa, who just so happens to be voiced by Kana Hanazawa. I guess they wanted to give her some love in this series (like she’s not getting enough already).

I do love Maekawa’s bedroom! Very nice setup.

Erio- “Hey, Makoto, do you want to spy on the neighbors?”                     Makoto- “Uhhh, no thanks….”

Maekawa- “What? They were fresh out of squid girl costumes.”

Maekawa’s dad! Nice mustache man!

After that first baseball game, Maekawa asks Makoto to join again the next day, which he agrees to and returns home to find Erio in the backyard looking at her telescope and asking him to join her later to look at the stars with her, which he agrees to. Erio does get curious about baseball and asks if she can join next time, Makoto is surprised she would even want to and my reaction was the same! But I think she just wants to hang around Makoto, who wants to be cooped up in the house all the time anyways? When they arrive on the pitch next day, they spot a strange astronaut cosplayer and think it was one of Maekawa’s fans; however, she has no idea who the mystery player is.

Erio- “Oh noes! A murder!”


Erio and Makoto stargazing together.

Makoto- “Here’s the plan! Erio, distract them with your moe powers!”                        Eri0- “AYE AYE, SIR!”

Now up to bat, alien girl from space!

After Erio manages to hit the ball, it flies right to the spaceman knocking them down. The others rush to carry the strange person off the field and the strange cosplayer slowly begins to talk and sounds strangely familiar to Erio’s mattress speech. The astronaut claims to be a Esper from another planet! The episode ends with Erio and Makoto staring at the mystery space man mostly confused.

Spaceman- “This is so cute! I must touch it…”      Erio- “Uhh, help! It’s trying to eat my brains!!”

Extra Aliens

Meme to the EXTREME!!

Dat face! It’s so cute!

Erio is falling out of that dress but it helps her gain new fans.

No! Bad Ryuuko! That basketball is not for eating!

End Thoughts:

This episode, I would have to say, not the best of lot with little progress beside introducing some new side characters. There was that new guy that talked to Makoto he does seem to have a thing for Ryuuko. She did blush when she saw him, maybe there is a crush or maybe he is just a random Ryuuko stalker? I did laugh when they had a character named Hanawaza, I didn’t recognize the voice but after listening and looking it up I did find that to be interesting. I guess they wanted to throw Kana some love? Either way nice cameo appearance by Kana Hanazawa, thank you Shaft.

As with any slice of life show we get the usual baseball themed episode! These types are mostly for chances at comedy and seeing the characters in action. With Denpa though, we don’t get much for laughs or anything amazing beside Erio actually hitting the ball so I guess that was cool, and it did allow them to add some extra characters like Maekawa’s father and random blonde dude. I was hoping for something funny to happen. Ryuuko did show up at the second game but did her usual growl at Erio. Seriously that is getting annoying; what is Ryuuko’s issue with Erio? I guess she saw her clinging to Makoto’s arm which made her jealous; I hope we find out why she dislikes Erio’s company.

Now for the mystery spaceman! Not really sure who that person really is, however the opening did show her off so I have an idea around that. I think that is the real Erio and the blue haired Erio might be the fake “Alien” version? Or the other way around! With the spaceman actually being the real alien that happens to look like Erio? Either way that’s what I think will eventually happen. Yes, I know very crazy ideas and I could be completely wrong. It’s usual for Shaft to throw new “crazy” characters and in Denpa’s case it might be for the whole who’s an Alien and who’s just a normal human? Anyway lots of ideas and I guess we will find out soon.


Makoto harem is growing. Add another crazy girl!

Next week! Will we find out who the mystery astronaut really is?! Yep, another crazy girl with some backstory I hope.

Thanks for reading!


Is huge anime fan from Florida! who loves to watch anime and also enjoys drawing and collecting pictures, my favorite genre of anime has to be Mecha, there is just something awesome about giant robots beating the crap out of each other! Other than that type of show, I love a good comedy or action series :D

    I’m really glad to see Erio trying to get back into society…although that spacewoman at the end…I don’t know what her plan is yet
    Grr, Ryuushi, I don’t know whether to love you or hate you; love your kawaii factor but hate your dereness against Erio…as for Maekawa’s dad…I wonder what would happen if Maekawa told him she was pregnant with Makoto as the father for a joke…I doubt he or Meme-san would be very pleased ha!

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yep it’s nice to see Erio doing some normal things, right no one knows yet! I am sure were in for something fun soon.

      Hahaha yesss I have no idea why Ryuushi hates Erio so much! Probably the reason why I dislike her a bit more now. Ah yeah Maekawa’s dad probably would kick Makoto’s ass xD

      • Reaper says:

        Completely forgot but loved Hanazawa’s appearance…the character I meant…duh 🙂 Is there anything good she’s not in?

        • Foshizzel says:

          Yeah great cameo appearance by her! Yeah she is just about in like 70% of this current season.

      • MikADo says:

        i think ryushii see erio as a rival for love 😛
        since erio and makoto’s relationship is not normal for cousins 😀

  2. Dan-go says:

    HOW DOES ERIOS DRESS NOT FALL OFF!!! i swear its held up purely by the power of the sparkles of her hair

    • Foshizzel says:

      Ahahahahah yes! Erio’s dress is magical so it doesn’t fall off agreed Dan-go it must be the sparkles in her hair!

  3. Dan-go says:

    oh i bet the space man is that softball captain!

    • Tofu says:

      Dan it’s can be the softball captain xD We’ve already seen what she looks like in the OP

      Correction: space WOMAN or girl ;D

      It’s loney without you around Dan~ T__T Come by Sekijitsu sometime

      • Foshizzel says:

        Yes yes space woman then again what if it’s a boy?! Muhahah lovely trap fun for everyone.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Ooooh that would be interesting!

    denpa onna is now getting back its lost steam.
    ryuushi is still not getting any support from me.
    maekawa is getting some support from me.
    erio is on top of my shipping with makoto.

    and now we have the other girl from the OP. wonder if she’s the real deal this time since she seems to recognize erio and said that erio came from another planet, or is she just another wacko.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yep it’s getting back to the fun of what got me interested in Denpa!

      Agreed Ryuushi has fallen as one of my personal favorites, I like Maekawa more she seems more calm not so jealous as Ryuushi xD

      Right they did spoil that character in the OP, right that’s what most people are thinking that they swapped spots for a bit. Then again the troll might happen with the space chick just becoming the other crazy character.

      • amado says:

        I think you misinterpreted me.
        I dont like ryuushi and she’s quickly going down my list.
        heck, id vote meme over her.

        • Foshizzel says:

          Ah alright no worries there.
          Yeah I feel just about the same about Ryuushi and yea Meme would win over Ryuushi now.
