Because Yukiteru’s bare skin hasn’t been getting the attention it deserves (´ー`)y-~~
I never knew that Deus was this large. It’s inconsequential to the plot, sure, but holy crap Deus is huuuuge.
Also I have greatly underestimated Murmur.
I used to think of her as poorly designed fanservice. She’s a loli but without the loli vibe. And those revealing clothes never quite evoke the thought of sexuality, but are merely asymptomatic, curving right through the regions of awkwardness and fashion disaster. And her personality + verbal tic grate against each other, each better off on its own.
Then I realized that Murmur is simply a superior, meta-level troll.
She’s trolling Deus, the Diary-Holders, and the viewers. I’d love her if I didn’t want to put my fist through her throat (that is not a sexual act in case you were wondering).
Even His Royal Wakamoto-ness cannot match such a foe on equal footing.
(For that he’ll need his Azumanga Daioh Neko Oyaji form.)
First thought: Akise is a pimp.
Second thought: Silly Akise, Hinata prefers Yukiteru and Mao is Yandere for Hinata.
Then I realizes that Akise is smarter than that and he’s probably got some ulterior motive.
Still, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a little fanservice while you’re on the job, yes?
Although I still think Hinata is less ero and more kawaii. My idiosyncratic choice of screencaps probably doesn’t help.
On the other hand, Mao does give off a distinct Kotobuki Tsumugi vibe. Ero and kawaii.
Just more proof that Yanderes provide the best fanservice. More Mao in the future episodes please.
More along the lines of “Oh, hell yes,” wouldn’t you say?
I can’t help but wonder how K-On! would have turned out if Tsumugi was as Yandere as Mao. But I’m sure those hypothetical scenarios have been explored in many, many doujinshi.
Such self-restraint from Mao. Then again for all I know, the anime adaptation may hold back where the manga cuts loose. A man can dream of Hinata/Mao sweetness.
(Go compare the Sekai-Ichi anime and manga. Filthy, filthy stuff. I was appalled, but I just couldn’t look away~)
Nishijima, you should just be happy with Minene and be done with this stuff. Who needs promotions when your wife’s a hot terrorist babe?
Although I suppose Akise just is that persuasive. And has a death wish. Or bends that way for Yukiteru and has a death wish.
Maybe you should have gotten second thoughts before the pickaxes started swinging out of elevators.
Or perhaps, you know, not have
put other people in danger brought more hostages for Yuno to capture and mess with.
At the very least, you could have brought only Kousaka, or sent the bugger in first.
You had one task, Kousaka. Akise didn’t ask you to hold off the Third Imperial Heavy Armor, or go up against Syndic Mitth’raw’nuruodo’s Household Phalanx, or the New Sith Empire (pardon the resurgence of my buried Star Wars fanboyism).
All he asked you to do was to keep a door open. And you couldn’t even do that.
I hope Kousaka’s plot armour wears off soon. And that he dies in a suitably offscreen, ignominious manner.
Yuno’s turning into quite the Shakespeare aficionado. Nothing like a little skull action to bring out everyone’s inner ham.
Why yes, I thought you’d have realized it at the pickaxe. Or at the elevator that stopped working. Or at the fake text messages.
Or at the moment you deluded yourself into thinking that you could face Gasai Yuno in single combat and survive with at least 2 limbs still functional, much less win.
Seriously Akise, I thought better of you. Idiot ball notwithstanding, this episode really didn’t do you any favours.
So much for being a detective. Even Kurusu, bless his moronic heart, would have handled this situation way better.
Nice little parallels here. It wouldn’t surprise me if Yukiteru’s drugged out of his mind. I’d worry about Yuno inflicting permanent damage on Yukiteru but:
1) I don’t actually care about Yukiteru (not beyond the need for plot advancement at any rate)
2) I don’t think Yuno actually cares about grievous bodily harm and/or death (not if she’s the one inflicting it)
2a) I think Yuno might actually prefer grievous bodily harm and/or death
Could it be? Could it be that the fated Union of 28th July will occur while Yukiteru is stoned out beyond consciousness? Yet another delicious slice of ironic pie (for our beloved male protagonist, that is). All the Yuno fanservice with none of the Yukiteru grief.
I so cannot wait for that episode. Don’t let me down now, Asread.

Just a little Akise to balance all the past Yuno art I’ve been posting. Yuno really cleans up nicely, doesn’t she?
