Ok, yes, Nozomu finally transforms. But she doesn’t DO anything! Highly disappointing.

Something else happens that confirms what we’ve been suspecting a while… Kouta is not a normal human, and is probably a spirit himself. When the sleeping sand was spread around the school to put the humans under, he wasn’t affected. Then of course, there’s the minor matter that when Chizuru couldn’t possess him because her powers were sealed, he refused to leave her — and then he possessed her All five tails were brown instead of golden, leaving no doubt as to who powered the righteous butt-kicking that followed. Of course, after the fact, he remembers nothing, preserving a semblance of the status quo.

I’d say that there’s at least an outline of a plot ticking away under the silliness, but I’ve been disappointed (read: fooled) too many times before. The loli-villainess hiding in the background cackles, “Exactly as I planned! See ya later!” More likely, the author’s just tossing in crap with no real plan.

Wonder how long until Media Blasters licenses this?

  1. I wonder if Kouta is a Coyote?

  2. Ubu Roi says:

    We won’t know until he pulls out a catalog from ACME.

  3. Well, there are only two more episodes, and the next one is a beach episode, so it’s hard to see how this can be wrapped up in any significant way. I bet we get a “And in our next series, if there is one, maybe we’ll tell more of the story” ending.

    Obviously I can’t read Japanese, but I can at least tell what pictures mean. On the Xebec site for the series there are four mangas and 8 light novels in addition to the anime. I doubt the anime finishes the story in just 12 eps.

  4. Heh. I wonder if Kouta is a Tanuki?

    What I bet is that he’s a fox and doesn’t know it.
