Nyan Nyan Maid?
I love persona and the SMT franchise is one of my favorite game series. Don’t @ me. I don’t want to hear it. *coughDevilSurvivor2WasNotasGoodAs1cough* So, it goes beyond saying that Persona 5 is an enjoyable watch for me. Sure, it can be a bit slow as it endeavors hard to stick to the game story as much as possible, but this nugget was something that I had not expected.
The episode opens with Ren, Ryuuji, and their classmate finding an advertisement for a maid cleaning service. The ad claims that they can do anything for their masters. So when the boys make use of an empty room that they have access to, they call the ad and ask for a maid. Ryuuji and the classmate chicken out, but Ren stays and finds out that his homeroom teacher, after she has offered to do more than cleaning, is the maid. Long story short, she uses this to get off another teacher’s radar and help Ryuuji make amends with his former teammates. The teacher tells Ren to call her again from time to time, and then she ends up being actually used to do laundry.
Glossing over the issue that a teacher is moonlighting as a maid sex worker who has offered to soothe her student’s worldly desires, this episode provided a brief break from looking into the darkness of the hearts of people around them and oddly, it was entertaining to watch. A mid-season refresher if you will, is quite nice especially when some shows just seem to drag on and on week after week.
Comic Girls’ ninth episode is cute, funny… and one of the best so far if you like the ecchi scenes! This time we get to enjoy a little more about Koyume’s kinky side, and not only with Tsubasa but with Ruki too!
In the first part of the episode the girls go out to find some inspiration, and Tsubasa ends up as Koyume’s pin up girl. Seeing her uncomfortable while trying to show her feminine side is just the beginning, and the tension between kouhai and senpai is really in the air. The climax is arguably when Koyume helps Tsubasa find something beautiful, sweet and girly to wear, with pantsu getting involved and a naughty hand taking advantage of the situation.
If that wasn’t enough and you still wonder about the little blonde pervert, let us say that Ruki has it going on too! The second part begins with her telling Koyume that she is fat ... and only a few seconds later we already have them both taking a bath. Smooth, huh? Well, the next step is talking Koyume into some massages, and she has something for the boobs! That’s not a coincidence, obviously. Kaos’ face while hearing them is priceless!! That scene resumes this episode, one of the best moments in anime this week.
Et tu, Aishela?
After finding out that the Mage Academy is the dark force pulling the strings behind the ongoing war between kingdoms and lords, Lady Marrine’s fears are confirmed when a mage announces through their wands that the Mage Academy is purging all the mages who support the lords. And in a very Mission Impossible style, he tells all who are listening to destroy their wands, as they can be spied on and located that way.
The Mage Academy and the Lords are officially at war and the academy is taking no prisoners. The birth of the Grancrest is officially a reality and the academy deems the new Emperor and the Lords a threat. The plan is now to unite the Treaty, Union, and Alliance and fight the Mage Academy in Eram.
Theo and Siluca’s allies destroy their wands, pledging allegiance to their lords and assuring they are not being spied on, save a few who decide to stay true to the academy and are allowed to just walk away. (Not sure why they didn’t imprison them or something…).
Siluca and her father have a sweet moment talking about how they are getting to work together and when Aishela walks into the tent, we find out that she and Siluca are sisters and Aishela is not a big fan of Aubeste. Aubeste, however, thanks Aishela for taking care of Siluca this whole time and calls them both his precious daughters. During this conversation, Aishela mutters that she is not a Meletes anymore… odd…
Everyone goes to sleep, including Siluca, who passes out at her desk. Siluca is soon woken up by Aishela, who is asking her to come out. As soon as Siluca steps out… holy crap! An expressionless Aishela takes a literal stab at her chest! WTF!? Oh no! Are we losing our main heroine!? No. Luckily, Irvin stops Aishela right on time and she admits to attempting to murder Siluca and that Theo was her next target.
Theo wakes up and they bring Aishela inside, where they strap her down after she admits to being sent by a secret agency from the academy. What a twist!
The academy has been watching Siluca all along and it turns out Aishela “tried” to kill her because otherwise, if she didn’t, the academy had placed a spell on her that would kill her. She still loves her sister and did a poor job on purpose. However, the spell or “geas” they placed on Aishela’s chest is activated and is seemingly being murdered through it by the academy’s secret organization.
But just as the moment is getting intense and emotional and we think Aishela’s a goner, the sweet Priscilla says “She’s not destined to die here” and pulls out her Holy Grail Crest to free Aishela from the magical shackles of the academy. I knew that girl would come in handy!
It was a very exciting episode full of surprises and twists! We didn’t lose any of our favorite girls and things are heating up by the minute! What’s happening next!?
