H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~

Mahou Shoujo Magical Otoha!

Wow, this was a crazy episode.

Hotaru and Hayami are now Takuma’s imouto’s, his uncle is now “okaasan” (don’t ask), Hamaji is “Takuma-chan’s” osananajimi, Otoha is a transfer student-cum-resident mahou shoujo, and her enemy is Yui the Magical Farmer. As if it’s not ridiculous enough. Otoha requires Takuma to tsukkomi people in order to collect enough energy to henshin. Yeah, definitely a whacko episosde. Hell they even inserted a Miku parody… wonder Crypton will sue them or not.

Anyways, it all turns out to be Otoha’s own dream world, where she intends to enjoy herself for a last few moments as she’ll be disappearing soon as her duty is done already. She bids Takuma a teary farewell, after wishing him the best.

While the majority of this episode was pretty much whacked, the parting scene was pretty touching, even if Otoha hasn’t got a lot of screentime so far. I feel that’s one of the factors that really hold back H2O from greatness, since the lack of episodes has really cut off the story, and I feel as if watching a summary of it.

Still, this was a pretty enjoyable episode, and they really went all out with the gags, even actually including a real OP of Mahou Shoujo Otoha *facepalms*.

    Please tell me you have an enlargened version of that final screenshot compilation. Of course the scene immediately after that caused my eyes to sting.

    Yeah, I’d totally watch Mahou Shoujo Magical Otoha!

    I’d probably enjoy it even more than H20. And I do actually LIKE H20. >_>

    Definitely thinking this series has lost it’s way a good bit.

    This episode was amusing in it’s own way, but I just wish they’d get back to the meat of the story and get some drama back in. They managed to deflate just about every conflict so I am wondering what the final episodes are gonna be about exactly.

    hmmm, I’d say that the last few eps would probably be about hirose’s background. There were a few scenes showing him at a funeral or something (or at least he was dressed in a suit) and there were mentions of his family’s history. Most likely it’ll somehow tie in with his blindness too.
    I’m just wondering, since Otoha is gone now, will he go blind again?
