What in the hell…?
Okay, so I guess this episode is considered a “filler” episode since it has nothing to do with the main storyline. However, given the quality of most of the episodes from this series, I can’t say that the fact that it’s a filler episode really means anything. Some have said that this episode is really bad, so bad that it could be considered the worse episode of To Love-Ru. But seeing how most of the episodes have been pretty bad, how much worse can it get? Well let’s find out.
P.S. I think I’ve mentioned in a few previous posts about the remaining episode count. I apologize since I was thinking it was a 24 episode series instead of 26 for some reason. Yes, more pain and suffering for me.
This episode is simply an episode of Magical Kyoko Flame (apparently a really poorly made anime in the world of TLR) that Rito and Lala are watching. Kyoko is your “average” high school girl with the ability to shoot flames from her mouth with a perverted upperclassman as a sidekick (she’s also from Black Cat).
Ikemen (the sidekick) informs Kyoko that the evil General Mojack has appeared and is giving everyone afros. Kyoko “transforms” into Magical Kyoko and battles with Mojack. The battle causes Mojack to turn bald and forces him to flee. Despite her victory and returning everyone back to normal, she gets in trouble with the chief of the fire department (who looks exactly like the principal… and as perverted too).
Mojack returns with his mother and attempt to get revenge on Kyoko. In one way or another the chief is given an afro by Mojack and the chief rejoices since he now has hair… and some other crap happens with a long lost dad showing up and some weird folk dancing… I dunno. The plot really falls apart here and I don’t even want to bother summarizing it… not that it was any good to begin with.
So, worst episode in TLR? Possibly. However, with six episodes left there’s plenty of room to ruin it even more. I realize that the people who came up with this episode were probably trying to make a parody or spoof of generic “magical girl” anime since it was so terrible and didn’t take itself seriously. Most of the time these parodies would be funny and entertaining to watch. But you see, TLR has to be unique in that it has to fail at comedy or anything of the sort. Thus giving us an episode that relatively made no sense at all and not in a good way either.
I really have no idea what this next episode is about, but when I saw those miniature aliens groping some unknown person (I think it’s supposed to be Yami), I cringed. I really don’t think this next episode will have any merits at all.
Six more episodes… someone save me!
