Ouch, that had to hurt.
A few Big Damn Heroes moments from Izayoi, Asuka and Kuro Usagi ends the deadly Gift Game with the Demon Lord Pest. The awesome turnaround had to be Kuro Usagi teleporting everyone up to the Moon (which apparently houses a Taj Mahal replica in Little Garden!) and Asuka dealing the final blow with the Spear of Indra. Poor Pest only wanted to beat the crap out of the Sun ;_;
Sadly, the show comes to an end with this episode as well. Mondaiji has been unexpectedly fun to watch through its run, thanks to Kuro Usagi (and her skirt) and Izayoi. The Gift Game setups being based on myths and legends also proved interesting as well, and I did learn quite a bit of the legend behind the Pied Piper of Hamelin with this second arc. Not expecting much for a second season, but I would really love to have Kuro Usagi back on-screen.
