The show is slowly picking up, in terms of interesting-ness and awesome-ness.
Didn’t expect to see even Hocchan in this show, much more as Miyako, the siblings mom at that. I just can’t see anyone with Hocchan’s voice as a mother. Really. Especially when she’s using that normal, Hocchan voice of hers.
The main star of this episode has to be Kou-chan. Kou-chan is “oh she’s so cute I wanna glomp her! wwwww”. Miko + dojikko + strong desire to protect master = win. Not to mention she’s got one awesome “uuuuuu :\” face.
