The wait is finally over for one of the most hyped (and feared depending on what the viewers’ thoughts are on KyoAni’s yuri fan torturing) show of the Nation in the Winter season. Let us see if we will be tortured again or not by those bastards.
Oh and just in case I will post this warning. Everyone who is caught up with the manga are requested to not mention any spoilers whatsoever or do an “anime vs manga” comparison.
Our story begins with the introduction of our leading ladies, the single adult woman working an office job named Miss Kobayashi and the dwagon she met one day while drunk and presumably saved from a sword wound named Tohru. That or she simply invited the dwagon to her place while drunk.
Miss Kobayashi tried having the dwagon leave by saying it was a misunderstanding but Tohru’s sad face…and almost being late for work changed her mind.
After work Miss Kobayashi tested Tohru’s qualifications as a maid if she wanted to stay with her. Tohru only knew about maids from seeing maid cafe employees on her way to Kobayashi’s apartment. Also when it comes to dwagons’ abilities…based on my 29 years worth of knowledge of life on this planet (so far), besides the more common traits of being huge reptiles who can fly and breathe fire their magical abilities are entirely up to the writers to decide what they can do. Hence Tohru being able to produce saliva that can wash clothing should not be questioned. The same goes for her being able to grow back her tail after eating it for dinner.
The dwagon confessed her love for the human without a second thought. The human told her the classic line of “but I’m a woman”. The dwagon responded by showing how devoted she is to Miss Kobayashi, meaning gender meant nothing to her. Also it is rumored that female dwagons can fornicate with humans, regardless of their gender.
Later on we were introduced to Miss Kobayashi’s coworker. The dwagon as expected felt threatened by this handsome man being close to her beloved mistress. However, her worries were somewhat diminished after seeing that the coworkers’ relationship is both professional and amicable…meaning the lad’s an otaku and Miss Kobayashi’s secretly a hardcore maid nerd, especially when drunk.
However, just in case the dwagon stood her ground and made it clear that Miss Kobayashi was her woman and Mr Otaku hitting on her would cost him his life. He was initally shocked but, being an otaku, it didn’t take long for him to process the situation.
Tohru’s homeworld is based on Norse Mythology.
While sharing Miss Kobayashi’s bed Tohru had a nightmare about what looks like a battle she had with dragon slayers and the sword that pierced her by who I assume is Odin. Could be Zeus but since this is Norse Mythology…Anyway Miss Kobayashi calmed Tohru back to sleep. Next week a mystery loli will pay a visit to Tohru.
Alright KyoAni. You did the right thing by removing all subtlety. The dwagon’s clearly gay for the office lady. You are still not forgiven for all the times you have tortured the Yuri Nation but so far this is a good start. I enjoyed the episode. Keep it up.
