(Hero Show Janai ka? / Benkyou Shinai ka? / Koi Janai Ka?)
“Isn’t it a Hero Show? / Won’t You Study? / Isn’t it Love?”
After last week’s Mini-Ika skit, I swear that I’m going to constantly be on the lookout for hidden gems like that. This week’s episode wasn’t as funny as the previous weeks but made up in the making fun of Ika department. I don’t think I’ve seen Ika praised so much in a single episode, getting her mind to fly so high, only to get dropped back to earth twice as hard. But without some good ol’ Ika bashing, what would this be? de geso!
I never thought that Ika would be a genius at math. I mean, I can understand that she’s great with computers (everyone has Internet under the sea!) but when she started solving complex math equations without breaking a sweat, I was pretty startled. Not only was I surprised but I think Eiko’s brain snapped as well. Imagine what she must have felt when she thought about how our useless Ika was better than her at something? Even better is when Ika finally realized that she had this dominance over Eiko and started banking on it. For the sake of passing her test, Eiko becomes little Ika’s slave for day so that she’ll teach her the secrets to math. I commend Ika for her idea to change positions with her – Ika barking the orders and Eiko doing all the hard work was fun to watch. I wouldn’t mind a manager like Ika, she’s just looks so cute with that little yellow megaphone! Of course nothing with Ika is as it seems, and even I don’t understand what this means. It’s supposed to be the ultimate formula for math +_+
The rest of the episode had Ika in a hilarious Hero Show and once again fighting for dominance over Nagisa. I don’t even understand where or why Chizuru had a hero costume hiding somewhere in the store, but boy you know someone is scary when the sound of their voice scares you. Chizuru is just plain devious. Also did it also occur to you guys that an “invader from the sea” should look like this instead of this? Makes me think Ika should learn from this and make a costume for herself! I also love Nagisa’s character with a passion. The comedic relief she provides just keeps getting better every episode. With Ika constantly fighting to keep Nagisa under her thumb, it’s just hilarious how Ika’s attempts to make herself look evil doesn’t even matter. With Nagisa’s dogmatic view of Ika as an invader from the sea, I hope she never understands how cute Ika really is. It will never get old watching Ika run over to Nagisa only to get flung hundreds of feet away.
