In this week’s episode of Okusama, Ui-chan becomes more responsible around the house, leaving Izumi-kun clueless as to her new attitude. Starting with Ui making breakfast for Izumi while wearing an apron for the first time, to the food actually tasting good, even though it looked a bit iffy, and now realizing that Mizumi-chan recently moved next to them in order to spy on them.
The moment I cherished the most was the opening scene. Ui is so excited to wake up Izumi, that in her attempts, she decides to sneak in a cutesy “Wake Up...Darling”, the outcome of which has her giggling like a little school girl (because she is) and loving the fact that she feels grown up and is in love with Izumi. Her actions and innocence are what made the moment the best for me, this week. Lol
“They are blank as if they are being erased!”
Well well well, we get finally have been given the plot device that is going to move the plot forward! After Gamon and everyone else remains strangely calm about the fact that they are dead, Asuna Kisaki is introduced as having the power of psychometry. Through it, she can see the memories of items including bodies. We already know that there is an experiment being carried out having to do with the existence of a soul that is what caused the 256 people to die. It seemed that was where the show is going to be caught in a rut. However, now with Asuna’s power, Occultic;Nine finally takes that turn into wtf-ville as she, and us too, try to figure out what is going on and why memories are being erased, thus hindering her investigation! It’s refreshing, it’s good, and you better believe that I will be watching next week to see when the organization steps in again.
We were born to make history
Well. We didn’t plan on talking about the same show two times in a row, but wow. When a moment like this comes along, how can you not rave about it? This anime has been breaking barriers since the beginning and here we are with a canon kiss scene followed by a look of absolute adoration in the afterglow - all in public. What makes this so breathtaking? Well, this isn’t a BL anime - Yuri!!! on ICE isn’t just about Victor and Yuri’s relationship, there’s no “oh no but we’re both boys!!” BL trope - they’re just two guys in love trying to do their best for each other and themselves. It sounds so simple, but in the anime world, this is a big deal for so many reasons and there may or may not have been tears. Many, many tears.
To Be Hero is so hilarious that they included a magical girl transformation by plugging in an alien lifeform into Yamada. It was so hilarious watching him ask for it and then his transformation into a girl! Best guy to girl anime transformation ever!
I can’t even believe that the guys were into she-Yamada! How did he get so pretty? And she/he even made friends with that alien that went up her/his butt. Friendship is great, isn’t it? Just goes to show you that anime is flipping weird and anything can happen! I cannot wait to see the next weird stuff! Is she-Yamada going to stay?!
Well, what did you think? Do you agree or disagree? Which is your favorite and what has stood out for you this week in anime? Let us know in the comments below!
