HNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGHHHHH Mamedai why are you so moe?!!
What the hell, KyoAni? It’s supposedly the loli’s episode but her dad is the moe one?! Seriously, Mamedai is so HNNNNGGGHHHH….
I’ll be honest, the Anko parts were pretty damn terrible since she’s not being endearing the least… half the time she was on-screen I was kinda tempted to grab her by the shoulders and shout at her “YOU’RE TOO DAMN YOUNG TO BE SO DEPRESSED ABOUT THIS!!!!”. Yeah, her emo-ness is pretty dang annoying.
That’s not to say the episode was bad. Once you exclude all the parts about Anko, the rest were pretty nice. We got to see Tamako’s mother (who is basically Tamako only more ojou and tone-deaf www) and of course all the parts with Mamedai were great as well. Choi’s totally fit in to the Kitashirakawa household too, but I wonder if she’s trying to fatten them with that glorious breakfast. Kanna was generally brilliant throughout, from her declaration to usurp the Baton Club captaincy to her mochi moulding and pounding skills… still don’t get why she isn’t getting her own episode. And of course, congratulations to Mochizou! Tamako actually remembered his birthday! And speaking of Tamako, she’s surprisingly not so dense this week too.
All in all, I’d say a pretty nice enough episode, even if the main focus ended up losing to the other plot threads in this episode.
