The time has come to get clarity on the creation process of the sexy android known as Mei-Tron who began as a child full of hope and wonder but was unexpectedly roboticized out of nowhere.
So Professor Father tried being all nice and stuff but her mechanical offspring had no interest in complying with his kindness. Yuzu tried melting the ice by telling him about Mei-Tron’s accomplishments but he had no intention of going back to work, upsetting the machine.
While going out for a walk the Professor was like “So my daughter still wants me to get back to work huh? Dood. Being cooped up in a laboratory all day suuuuucks. I wanted to take a chill, see what the world had to offer and expand my knowledge that way instead of being cooped up in a lab building Stepford Wives for no good reason. Hopefully my offspring will one day forgive me for almost turning her into another subservient doll”.
Unfortunately as we’ve seen up to this point he did TOO GOOD of a job. Mei-Tron greatly admired the professor and completely devoted herself to her programming, doing whatever it took to be a worthy successor…even if it meant enduring crap as we saw in the premiere. All for the sake of making her creator proud. However, when the professor walked away from the world of science she was disappointed and heartbroken at the same time. To make up for his absence she decided to carry on the Aihara legacy by herself in the hopes her father would one day reconsider. The professor outright telling her he refused was the “killing blow” so to speak.
Mei-Tron initiated “Attack Mode” once more. At first Yuzu felt great joy as she was like “Finally. Mei accepted me.”…but then her joy turned to anger when Mei-Tron was like “This is what you have desired all this time, is it not? Unlimited pleasure. You wish to be sexually satisfied all the time, correct? Such a simplistic desire”. Yuzu was like “Damn you you hot rust bucket. Is that all you think of me? Some horny bitch who wants your sprocket nuggets and nothing more!? Damn you!”
During all this Mama was like “They’re both flawed beings who can’t be honest with their familial bonds. Like father, like daughter pretty much…Teehee.”
It’s that time again folks for Our Savior Harumin to do what she does best, save the day.
Back to the plot. Mama called asking Yuzu if Mei was with her because Professor Father was already leaving for his flight. Our Savior was there to back Yuzu up in her search for robo-imouto.
While Yuzu ran laps around the school searching the mechanical one was sulking in Professor Father’s laboratory showing that her human side, unlike her mechanical one, wanted to have fun with her dad again. See? Like father, like daughter.
An early “Serious Mode” this time around: So during the first time the OP aired some were whining about it being kinda spoilerfic. My argument back then on Twitter was the following “Yes. Scenes of later events and characters who would show up later were shown but there we didn’t see anything of what the scenes meant or what the characters would do so really nothing major was spoiled.” Only NOW in this episode do non-manga readers know what the bike scene in the OP was referencing.
Back to the show, Mei-Tron was like “This unit cannot comprehend the motives behind your actions Yuzu” to which Yuzu responded “Dood. does everything HAVE TO MAKE SENSE for it to be right? I’m doing this for you because I want to yo”.
They made it in time but Mei was nervous. Thankfully Yuzu was like “You got this Mei” and the two patched things up with Mei calling the professor just “Father” for the first time in ages I imagine. Afterward Mei was like “I’m inheriting the factory because it’s what I want” and Yuzu was like “Cool.”
Back home Yuzu and Mei were reading all the professor’s letters. Yuzu had a “My little sister’s growing up” cry and Mei’s humanity reached out to the gyaru…
Now this ladies and gentlemen is a different kiss from all the others up till now because finally, FINALLY it’s a consensual one. Mei started realizing she too likes Yuzu romantically and this served to intensify Yuzu’s love for Mei.
With that the “Professor Father” Chapter has come to an end. Join me next time as we begin the “Pink Enigma” Chapter.
