Tomoki’s mysterious dreams of Daedalus turn into nightmares when Chaos invades them.

“I caught a Delta!”

「西瓜(トモキ)喰います」 (Suika (Tomoki) Kuimasu)
“Eating Watermelons (Tomoki)”

You would think that if you paired up the smartest first generation angeloid with the dumbest, some middle ground would be reached in terms of collective intelligence. However, things don’t quite add up that way in practice as Astraea brings out the worst in Nymph. Stealing from Ikaros’ watermelon garden. Now that’s just stupid. The real kicker was Nymph trying to spur on some rapid growth with her hacking when Ikaros came home. Why she would listen to Astraea’s suggestion is beyond me, but it sure made for some slapstick fun when Tomoki got dragged into the mess and was transformed into a second mutant watermelon. For that, we can thank Nymph’s “brilliant” idea of planting the Tomoki’s seed after he was eaten alive and spat out. Angeloid stupidity must be infectious or something. With Nymph’s attempted cover-up and Ikaros coming at them Terminator-style to protect her master, the best part of it all was how Tomoki was a complete victim this time around and Mikako was nowhere to be seen. All that was needed were a couple of angeloids who weren’t smart enough to use a card to materialize themselves some food, and the high jinks got rolling almost immediately. Given the refreshing and hilarious change of pace from seeing Nymph fall to such levels, I definitely wouldn’t mind seeing more humor from her in future episodes.

The real treat this week was that all of the above happened on top of the formal introduction of Chaos (Iguchi Yuka Toyosaki Aki). As someone who hasn’t read the manga, I was a bit surprised to find out that she wears a nun’s habit. It was only a couple of episodes ago that I was poking fun at how Index is an angeloid, but I wasn’t really expecting her to look like a smaller evil version of her. Funny how that worked out as if to say the joke’s on me, because it sure felt that way to a certain degree. (Edit: It looks like everyone’s suspicion that Yuka was going to play Chaos was quickly put to rest.) As creepy as Chaos is, the latter half of this episode had some really good character development from Nymph, as well as overall story progression from Eishirou. In the latter case, I actually got a good laugh out of how Eishirou was making complete fools of the Gamma harpies by diving in and out of Synapse up until Nymph was lured away by Chaos in disguise and put him between a rock and a hard place — namely, pointblank with a Prometheus cannon. Even at times like that, the comedy was front and center like it should be. In the former, it was nice to see Nymph’s longing for a master brought up again, simply because she brings a surprising amount of emotion when she’s dwelling over the thought of being unwanted. I couldn’t help but feel bad for her when Chaos went on to toy with the delicate state she’s already in, so I’m really looking forward to the moment that Tomoki, Ikaros, and the others swoop in to save her again.

Judging from Nymph’s tears after thinking she destroyed Chaos with her Paradise Song, it seemed like the emotional damage she sustained was harder to take than the strangulation she received shortly after. Of course, that won’t be true if she actually ends up biting the dust, for which Eishirou will hopefully be able to do something about now that Daedalus is with him. Good humor and good story progression. It looks like this sequel is finally picking up steam on the more relevant side of things.

* A Sora no Otoshimono movie was recently announced on the official website.

At least Astraea realizes she’s hit a new lowest of lows. Getting her skirt pulled off was just adding insult to injury though.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte   07   05 Sora no Otoshimono Forte   07   06

Nymph is still my favorite one to watch this season simply because of her constant outfit changes. Astraea on the other hand finally shows us exactly where the fridge scene in the opening sequence comes into play.

This is the beginning of a beautiful (whiny) relationship.

OMG fatties! Watermelons are 92% water by weight, so those bellies are pretty ridiculous.

Whether it’s insects or watermelon thieves, Ikaros can lay the beat down with her Artemis arrows.

Like really, is there any reason to believe that one of Astraea’s bright ideas would actually pan out? Hacking plants. Now that’s just dumb.

You rape reap what you sow… Vine style!

Sora no Otoshimono Forte   07   13 Sora no Otoshimono Forte   07   14

So I’m thinking that Nymph should have just booked it after Ikaros’ hand came through the door. For added effect, the Uranus Queen should have just walked right through it.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte   07   Snapshot 05

There probably wasn’t much point trying to cover it up at this point, but that doesn’t mean Nymph wasn’t going to try.

It’s time to play the blame game! Too bad the Artemis laser beams have already been sent flying.

Tsundere angeloids are a handful. Or was that mouthful?

Ikaros is the only one smart enough to eat faster when the food stealing starts. Oh how I love croquettes. They’re sooo gooood.

I guess it’s all this guy’s doing. Eishirou on the other hand could sure use and escape route aaaanny second now. Wait for it…

Sora no Otoshimono Forte   07   Snapshot 11

There it is! Daedalus to the rescue!

Sora no Otoshimono Forte   07   21 Sora no Otoshimono Forte   07   22

It’s pretty twisted how a perverted Tomoki is much less menacing than an unexpectedly nice one, but that’s how the real master pervert rolls.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte   07   Snapshot 12

Toying with people’s emotions. How despicable!

Second generation angeloid, Type Epsilon Chaos has arrived! Quick, someone sound the loli alarm!

She made Nymph cry! Someone stop that crazy bitch!

Sora no Otoshimono Forte   07   25 Sora no Otoshimono Forte   07   26

Well, it’s probably safe to say that Chaos won’t be joining Tomoki’s harem. Stupid angeloids are welcome, but the crazy ones can stay home.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte   07   Snapshot 15

Nymph may be in trouble, but I like the prospect of Daedalus intervening in some way.

    Nymph, it’s a pinch… wait, this is not star driver… my bad :D
    love how the crazy nun can stir things into a more serious ground… can’t wait to see how Tomoki and Ikaros or Daedalus saving the day…
    and Eishirou, you know both English and Spanish?!

  • November 13, 2010 at 3:43 amFlamingYu

    LoL @ Eishirou fail to run away.
    Ikaros sure is smart, gulp down everything before they start stealing hers.

    Delta eating squids instead of worms? I remember she ate fishing worms,could be wrong.

    • November 13, 2010 at 3:44 amFlamingYu

      and INDEX turn PSYCHO.

    indeed chaos + nun suit + face = creepy

    & now in a to be continued OH NO!!!

  • November 13, 2010 at 5:07 amdamrod

    I actually expected chaos to look cuter then that from what i read about her [:]

    But chaos her wings are looking nice, the first and maybe only angeloid with blades for wings ^^

  • November 13, 2010 at 5:09 amKyral

    btw Chaos is not voiced by Iguchi Yuka but Toyosaki Aki (Yui from K-on, Uiharu from Railgun)

    • November 13, 2010 at 5:18 amFlamingYu

      aww, it’s not fully-INDEX then, and I thought she went Psycho mode.
      Thanks for the correction.

    • November 13, 2010 at 7:51 amZaku Fan

      Yeah Yui went nuts. Next K-On movie, “K-ON, When they Cry”.

    • November 13, 2010 at 3:02 pmDivine

      Whoa what the heck. You’re right. A lot of Japanese sources were expecting her to be played by Yuka. Well there goes all my Index comparisons. :(

      • November 14, 2010 at 2:41 amKyral

        I know how you feel, I too was hoping for Yuka as Chaos voice actress and I really thought she was voicing her back in episode 5. :-/

  • November 13, 2010 at 5:32 amrasone0104

    Chaos… Damn..
    I hope this season reaches the other angeloid girl…
    the one with weather control

    • November 13, 2010 at 7:49 amZaku Fan

      Not possible if they keep to the manga. She might get an intro in the final episode but more likely it’ll have to continue in the movie which should run about ~4 episodes length (90 minutes), enough to flesh out her arc fully

      • November 13, 2010 at 6:36 pmPae

        They tend to swap around manga chapters a lot and I suspect it will take just 1-2 more episodes for Chaos arc to resolve. So, unless they’re going to stretch Chaos episode to at least 3-4 episodes or put more filler contents in, chances are fair that the next Angeloid arc will be in this season.

      • November 15, 2010 at 5:27 pmrasone0104

        but if you think about it she already had a cameo.

  • November 13, 2010 at 5:46 amRazgriz

    Chaos’s eyes remind me of Lelouch and her hair reminds me of C2. I think the animators did some pretty creepy hybrid over there. And I see that Aki Toyosaki is slowly building her reputation since K-ON!

    • November 13, 2010 at 5:56 amjrj

      now you have mentioned it… the eyes and hairs do give Geass vibes… nice observation :D

  • November 13, 2010 at 5:51 amKarmafan

    I loved this episode. I like them best when there is some story progression and the sillyness/fan service is a part of the episode but not the whole episode.

  • November 13, 2010 at 7:47 amZaku Fan

    For Chaos, its always “run with scissors” type insanity. I liked Astrea’s floor rolling and Nymph’s chibi petulance scene. Out of the entire bunch, Ikaros is always the one with the best strategy.

    Nymph’s too confused by her emotional circuits to plan though to be fair she saw straight through the harpies ploy in season 1 in the manga (while the anime went with the standard “i’m easily deceived” road)

  • November 13, 2010 at 7:50 am♛Croosboy♛

    i wonder if they make the evil expression of tomoki speak with the master of the sky. that would be epic

  • November 13, 2010 at 8:07 amAvalanche

    “All that was needed were a couple of angeloids who weren’t smart enough to use a card to materialize themselves some food . . .”

    At the beginning of the series they had food cards, but they used a card to ‘make everything a dream.’ So none of the food cards exist. I guess that also explains why Ikaros always goes out shopping instead of simply using a card.

    • November 13, 2010 at 6:42 pmPae

      They still use cards now and then though. My guess is it’s because Tomoki wants to lead a normal, peaceful life so he asks Ikaros to do shopping normally instead of using cards.

  • November 13, 2010 at 8:22 amThundershock81

    Creepy little loli’s always make the best psycho’s.

    This series is so much win.

  • November 13, 2010 at 8:46 amShinjiro

    Holy crap, the storyline got a good kick this time around. Chaos on Earth, Eishirou saved by Daedalus and Nymph in dire trouble while Ikaros’emotions are really starting to show…
    On a side note, I’d love to eat Ikaros food! I NEED an angeloid at home!!!!

  • November 13, 2010 at 9:35 amsamu

    Plenty of story involving the plan for the Master of the Sky’s revenge in this episode, with lots of comedy mixed in, but surprisingly no Tomoki pervertedness takes place!

    Looks like Astraea’s’s stupidity wins out against Nymph’s intelligence when hunger’s involved! She and Nymph whining together and growing (literally) closer was surprising. Ikaros gave me the Jack Nicholson’s “Here’s Johnny!” flashback from The Shining; that must’ve freaked Nymph out! Ikaros is also showing more common sense than the others at the dinner table when stupidity breaks out!

    Astraea unknowingly hurt Nymph’s feelings providing an opening for the new angeloid, Chaos, radiating with the creepy vibes, plus she can morph into strangely nice Tomoki with the creepy smile. According to the Master of the Sky, Chaos’ power exceeds all the 1st generation angeloids. I can’t wait for a big showdown!

    I remember from season one Tomoki used the cards to make food, money and obtain invisibility, then accidentally wished everyone to disappear. When he took all that back to wish it all away as a dream, all those abilities seem to have been lost. That’s the only reason why Ikaros has to go shopping for food with Sohara, and they seem to be on a tight budget.

    Another Terminator reference was when Mikako’s dog started barking at the creepy nun girl.

    Eishirou gets saved by Daedalus from the Harpies, so maybe she’ll tell him her side of the story and about Synapse!

    “Little girls in nun habits spell nothing but trouble, especially ones voiced by Iguchi Yuka.”
    You can say that again.

    • November 13, 2010 at 3:21 pmDivine

      I got so faked out by Aki’s voice coming in thinking Yuka plays Chaos, so I had to hedge that statement. :\

      • November 13, 2010 at 11:58 pmBluance

        I had the same vibes it was Yuka also, Aki the impersonator! she should just take the main roles of heroines in To aru majutsu no index.

    and the ending song didn’t really match all the drama right before it

  • November 13, 2010 at 4:06 pmKarmafan

    In the OP they show Nymph with her wings back on so I’m assuming somehow they get regenerated (Daedalus maybe)? If they end up going to war with the synapse then Nymph gonna need her wings back.

    Maybe this season ends with Icarus, Nymph, and Astrea having Tomoki for a master? Mixed in with his perviness and stupidity is a guy with a good heart and some stones.

  • November 13, 2010 at 6:22 pmKelfistan

    I like Chaos actually (I know, I’m not loli). She brings a great twist to the story part. Even though she is creepy, and scary at times, she is the cool awesome creepy that I like. I makes all the other angeloids look bland. Well, except for Nymph. She is having a really good character development right now.

  • November 13, 2010 at 8:30 pminfo600

    im just gonna sit out of those plot breaker theories and just say:

    they can’t do much where they are atm.
