I see what you did there.
So Zange isn’t exactly moving in with Jin, but tensions between Zange and Nagi continue to increase as Nagi starts to capture some of Zange’s fanbase.
A flirtatious girl in religious clothing. Can it be anymore ironic?
Picking up where we left off last week, Zange shows up at Jin’s home while Nagi and Tsugumi are there as well. Zange treats Jin to a well-made dinner (assumed to be made by Hakua and not Zange herself) and tries to get him to leave Nagi for her. Tsugumi (and eventually Nagi) interrupt Zange’s flirtation with Jin and ends up in a cooking competition with Nagi and Zange. Zange’s dish turns out to be a burnt pile of trash since Hakua refused to help Zange with the competition. Tsugumi’s dish consisted of (surprise surprise) fried eggs and vegetables. Nagi’s dish looked the best but had a strange taste to it. I’m not too sure what became of the outcome of this battle, but from the looks of it, nothing has changed.
Couldn’t get the TL note in here, but it basically says that Yamakan, the director of Kannagi, was previously sacked by Kyo-Ani after directing four episodes of Lucky Star.
Later on, there seems to be an official Nagi fanclub starting up around the school. Students from the school start to praise Nagi as she randomly appears around school and socializes with them. This is great for Nagi as her powers as a god seem to slowly return, however the faculty at the school are starting to worry and see her as a problem. Zange also see’s this as a problem since Nagi is basically taking away some of her fans.
Take that! Volt Lighter!
Nagi is eventually caught by Suzushiro-sensei who apparently knows of Nagi as a deity and is also Hakua’s dad. Although Suzushiro is on Nagi’s side, Nagi is placed under interrogation from Hagashima-sensei while Suzushiro goes to talk to the principal. As Nagi’s fans start to chant her name outside of the room, Nagi starts to feel more power within her and is able to shine a light through her wand.
Nagi’s situation is finally settled as Suzushiro manages to get Nagi enrolled into the school. Suzushiro happens to be a teacher of religious studies and a priest, explaining the reason he would know of Nagi. He also asks Nagi to free Hakua from Zange’s possession in which she gladly agrees to.
Not sure why Zange is scared of her “dad”. Maybe it’s just Hakua.
Zange continues to intrude on Jin and Nagi, however it seems that Zange has a problem with Nagi being able to call upon Suzushiro for help.
LOL Tsugumi. Fried eggs and vegetables are really all you can cook, aren’t they.
Another great episode. The first part with the cooking competition seemed kind of random though. Of course they had to wrap up the loose ends from the previous episode, but after that it seemed like the rest of the episode had nothing to do with it. I guess some random fun is good once in a while though. There wasn’t much in the episode that was worth mentioning, but I’ll try to share a few moments.
No means no, I guess.
I thought the part where Zange and Hakua not cooperating with each other was kind of interesting. Could this possibly lead to to more problems with Hakua rebelling against Zange? This could prove to be an important plot element later on in the series, but then again it could totally be just for silliness.
A bit of comedy from a serious man. Neato.
Not sure how Suzushiro’s role will play in the later episodes, but he seems to be very knowledgeable and perceptive. He’ll probably show up whenever there’s stuff going on with the deity stuff and no some much the comedy stuff (except that one part with the eye twinkle =P).
Akiba is watching his role slowly fade away into the background.
Speaking of side characters, the members of the art club haven’t gotten much screen time lately. I want to see much head asploding nosebleeds from Takako, more funny references and outbursts from Akiba and more random moments from Daitetsu. Hopefully it’ll happen, but I’m not holding my breath.
Love Nagi’s face here.
I like how Nagi kind of turned her attention to the food instead of what was going on between Zange and Jin in this moment. It wasn’t until Tsugumi butted in when Nagi finally said something. It proves a little that Nagi doesn’t care much for Jin other than someone to give her a place to stay and cook for her.
Volt Lighter strikes again!
My favorite part of this episode has to be when Zange goes “Whoa! So bright!” in that surprisingly uncute voice. It totally caught me off guard even though it was so obvious she was coming. I dunno why, but it has me cracking up every time I see it.
