Nyoron Churuya #11
Whoa, a whole episode without one of the standard Churuya nyoron jokes. Fine by me, because I like the ASAHAKURA – Churuya – Kyon love triangle of failure anyway. Watching this, I couldn’t help but wonder how Churuya and ASAHAKURA were able to hold pencils and write without thumbs. And is Churuya tauting ASAHAKURA when she calls her Assyacchi? Or was that just a translation gone horribly wrong? At the end of the day, Kyon ends up with Churuya and ASAHAKURA gets left out in the dust. I guess it’s only fair that if Churuya can’t get her smoked cheese then ASAHAKURA isn’t going to get any Kyon smooches.
One of the more bizarre webisodes of Haruhi-chan – which is saying a lot – simply because there was some semblance of a nonsensical plot. The gang all go to I guess what is a sentai stage show, starring Arakawa and Meido Mori, to satisfy Nagato’s raging otaku needs, and
Churuya I mean Tsuruya finds herself in a mano-a-mano showdown with Mori. They’ve been building to the Mori-Tsuruya duel for a few episodes now. Of course, I don’t know why they’ve been building to this duel, or why the two ended up fighting, but this is the Internet – things don’t need to make sense.
Action-fighter Tsuruya was pretty cool to see, but Mori was even better. She’d give Sayoko a run for her money. I did get a chuckle out of Haruhi, of all people, having to restrain Nagato from acting too crazy. And you could see it coming a mile away, but Kyon and Koizumi’s last puzzle piece destruction was pretty funny.
I feel a little silly asking for plot clarification, but I wouldn’t mind knowing why Tsuruya felt compelled to challenge Mori. Otherwise, I’d rather KyoAni keep their drama out of the Haruhi-chan skits.
ACHAKURA didn’t bring a whole bucket of laughs this week, but she replaced with a higher than recommended daily dosage of cuteness. While she’s been quite domesticated by her chibication, she’s also brought Nagato back from the land of otakus and helped Kimidori become a helpful part of the household. Seriously, now that she even does household chores, I really need to find where I can get my own chibi ACHAKURA.
