Benten’s mystique really grows by the episode. She’s totally dominating this show, heh.
Slightly surreal episode as the Friday Fellows are introduced. So it’s basically a gentlemen’s club of sorts, only with the tradition of having tanuki hot pots. I’m quite curious how Benten ended up with this bunch though… it doesn’t seem to fit her character very much. And the rest of the club members seem pretty normal humans, so far.
Of course, it still felt super odd hearing Yodogawa’s confession of love towards tanukis…. until he’s loving them so much that he wants to eat them too. And wow, the sheer irony of him rescuing the Shimogamo matriarch, while having ate her husband. Heh, gotta admire Yasaburo’s resilience on dealing with them. I bet any other tanuki would just flip out and go mad hearing that stuff.
