Denpa Onna 08

Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko

“What” indeed!

As if to make up to the lackluster episode last week and the general lack of Meme-chin for the last two episodes, this episode is done totally from Meme-chin’s point of view. Predictably, it doesn’t disappoint.

Turns out quite a few things mentioned and happened in the past two episodes have had Meme’s hand in them, from disappearing animals to the bottle rocket launching. And it was all for the Tamura-baachan’s sake, who turns out to be Meme’s grandmother. The only weird thing is why did Makoto didn’t know about his great-grandmother when he first met her, or why didn’t Meme introduce her as such to him. The Touwa family has some really complicated things going on…

Also, loli Meme-tan appearance!

So Elliot does exist! And he’s probably Erio’s father too, though it seems that he’s gone now. Wonder if they are really going to cover that later? While the character eccentricities are the focus of this show, I think a little story and background development wouldn’t hurt much. It’s surprising how many things are so unclear right now.

For example, it turns out that the shop that Maekawa’s been working part-time is actually managed/owned by Meme… though it seems that she doesn’t really do much work for it. And there’s also the mysterious girl running around town in Japanese clothes doing random things. She’s cute yes, but who and what is she doing?

Oh well, guess we’ll have to wait to see what happens next week!

    It’s a guess, but maybe Meme and Makoto’s father don’t share the same dad (or mom). That’s why old lady Tamura has not blood-relationship with Makoto.

    Personally I am fine with not having too much character background. I think this is a show where they could leave it up to the viewer to fill it in. So many awesome moments this episode with Meme-chan. She’s a dangerous creature that one.

    Meme should have just told Yamamoto that already has an adolescent teenage boy at home to fulfill all her needs :DDD

    Yeah, there are a lot of mysteries surrounding this anime, though they aren’t really that important. The only remarkable thing right now is the identity and/or what Elliot looks like since they deliberately whited it out.

    Was I the only one who heard the police coming at the end of the episode? Maybe next week we see Meme in jail :D

    This episode was fantastic. It’s so rare to see adult characters get development in anime.

    Poor Yamamoto-kun indeed.

    Meme’s faces just get more terrifying as the series goes on. I’m seeing them in every one of my Amnesia-related nightmares, and it’s honestly getting a little disconcerting.

    That said, the slight bit of background info on the mysterious bottle rocket guy was appreciated, as was the revelation that it wasn’t of direct importance to the story. Like that they’re keeping me guessing as to the whereabouts of Erio’s father.
