Luhy and Yoriko are still MIA but at least the Great Race of Yith are bringing on the laughs. I for one was very amused with all the Gundam jokes even the horrible reminder of the lousy jammers from Cosmic Era. We also got some political commentary and if that fellow (he knows who he is) has an ounce of sense he would do well to shut his pie hole before he tempts the wrath of the true gods. Nyaruko makes the most use of her time as Mahiro, last time she discovered how great boys were and now she did everything to make their relationship public. If there was ever a time to confess Nyaruko played it so well that I almost suspect that she planned to return to normalcy before the fallout landed. Indeed it seems that she had almost planned to let Mahiro take all the heat and suffer the embarrassment.
The Yith paying their respects to Gundam was fine and dandy for me the best moment was a tie between the snide political commentary and that KISS. It is a shame that they could not refer to that vile politician by name but my money is on this bastard who has turned his governorship of the lost city Edo into vile Principality of Zeon. Indeed if the colony drop was not enough of a hint the bastard is using the aegis of “protecting the children” when we all know that the children need to be protected from him. Still I did much appreciate the beating that Kuko and Hasuta gave him, and while I did fear for the Crawling Chaos for a bit while remained in a mortal shell, Nyaruko was given the honor of vanquishing Space Child Guardian. Cleaving him in twain was a nice touch and that ought to show that political rat about the POWER OF LOVE. Still given how Mahiro only stepped into to save Yoichi’s body, I think Nyaruko might need a new form soon.
Nyaruko is quite the kisser, I just wish she asked Mahiro to “close your eyes.” It was long, it was passionate, and it was everything Nyaruko hoped it to be. For Mahrio though I think this kiss will take his san points down a bit (how he has avoided insanity so far is remarkable if ultimately doomed) after getting a big juicy one. Quite why he didn’t use the selfcest defense is beyond me but I think he kind of liked it… Kuko and Hasuta didn’t like it much and while both were shocked to their very cores I think that we can expect both to bounce back. Hasuta might go for another mouth to mouth while Kuko will be cashing in on favors owed. I wonder if Kuko is going to demand a kiss from Mahiro to get an indirect kiss from Nyaruko in an effort to compel Nyaruko to honor the bargain. That or Kuko simply tackles Nyaruko and tells Nyaruko to “close your eyes”.
I have to hand it to them though the staff certainly keeps pace with referencing past episodes. I am disappointed that they didn’t hammer down the Squid Girl jokes, if only I could hear Nyaruko and Kuko add de-geso to their vocabularies. I feel bad for Tamao though, she has almost no shot and her rivals wield divine powers. Whatever good things Isuka saw in her future I hope it will be good, if things don’t work out for KukoxNyaruko then perhaps Kuko can jump Tamao. I wonder what kind of yuri hawtness would have ensued had the Tamao/Isuka gattai remained intact. My hopes shot up when Isuka was asking Kuko about games, I hope that at some point Isuka also runs into Yoriko and Luhy.
Next week has a loli invading Kuko and Nyaruko’s love nest, but I wonder if said loli is in fact Nyaruko’s love child.
