That box of balloons that Nagato brought back from the big competition last episode? Turns out that Achakura is a real kiddie when it comes to these things (hehe!)… using her ultimate data manipulation, a particular green balloon somehow turns into… Minoru Emidori? Well, whatever his name, it’s nothing more than yet another ruse to bait poor Achakura…

The set of Lucky Channel gets converted into Haruhi’s cooking spot, with all the expected trimmings. Also, Yuki endows “homing mode” on a samurai sword with some potentially disastrous results for Kyon. At least he finally got what was coming…
See, Kyon is kinda like Churuya-san’s guardian in the same way that Yuki is Achakura’s, and yet, Kyon comes off looking like a total dick while Yuki is just kinda, teasingly funny. Or maybe it just seems that way because Achakura isn’t given any whitewashed backgrounds in which to say “SHIMATTA!!!” That expression on Achakura’s face in ep 15, pic 5 had me chuckling… that whole “I’m probably gonna get pwned but dammit he’s so cute” look of anxiety lol.

The cooking ep was meh but we did get to see Yuki lookin pretty cool in a sword, the return of homing mode, and Itsuki busting out with a “mawwaare~” (a nod to his trademark word and character single). KyoAni sure knows how to please em – when the story is thin, just throw a ton of references at it!

  • April 5, 2009 at 11:01 pmjaalin

    sorry about the lack of captions guys, super busy lately -_-

    Isn’t anyone else concerned about the miniature hindenburg disaster? Poor Achakura…

    I love this spin off. But I do wonder how long they are going to keep producing it.

  • April 6, 2009 at 12:38 amCherubium

    I wonder if Yuki will have a giant hole in the roof next time we visit.

  • April 6, 2009 at 12:42 amPeanutbutter003

    No screen captions? Awww…

  • April 6, 2009 at 12:46 amithekro

    DVD sales seem to be expected for this series at the end of May. Someone suggested there will be 24 of these and 12 of the Nyoro~n-san episodes.

    @nutsy: Kyon CAN get like that… it shows up a bit in the novels. Not very often though.

  • April 6, 2009 at 2:39 amquigonkenny

    Samurai Yuki = hawt…

    BTW, the dog-balloon introduced itself as Kimidori (not to be confused with Emiri Kimidori). Remember the name when it appears in a future episode.

    And cooking instant noodles for either fifty hours (around two days and two hours) or five days is really a very absurd time, not to mention the end result will not smell and/or taste good, based on experience.

    Hey, jaalin, whatever happened to the mouseover captions for this pair of episodes?

  • April 6, 2009 at 10:26 amLia

    This is crap, its animation is crap… How can anyone watch this???

  • April 6, 2009 at 11:24 amKinny Riddle

    And I was wondering why is my computer was taking so long to reveal the usual screen captions. xD

  • April 6, 2009 at 3:51 pmActar

    Another Ga-Rei Zero reference with Yuki using Shishiou, Yomi’s sword. :)

  • April 6, 2009 at 5:32 pmSavofenno

    Lia@ -You have to know this anime first, to understand character`s actions. You better watch the original series from 2006 before saying anything about this. I think this is very funny indeed.
    I can see screen caps no prob.

  • April 6, 2009 at 6:00 pmEcureuilMatrix

    Since ‘midori’ is green, does Kimidori-san mean something similar to Green-san? Or am I completely off? I guess it is a pun with Emiri’s hair color?


    AlsoAlso: Bring back the captions!

    Nagato l33t katana skills = WIN!

  • April 7, 2009 at 10:28 amLia

    Is this, what? a comic version of Susumiya Haruhi??

  • April 8, 2009 at 3:30 amithekro

    A KyoAni made net anime version of the “Official” Parody 4koma of Harhui.

  • April 8, 2009 at 12:23 pmumeboshi110

    ki means yellow and midori is green so kimidori is yellow-green (or lime green or something in that range)

  • April 11, 2009 at 5:39 pmtyler

    will there be image caps soon?
