No 7: Meet Cure Emiru!? (Fake!)
When Ruru volunteer to buy the cheap eggs at the supermarket, Emiru who is now dressed in a make- shift costume encountered her and proclaimed to be Cure Emiru. It got Ruru froze for a moment as this event does not compute her "programming."
|Emiru is pretty high for a Precure candiate...|
Of course, Ruru realised Emiru is not an actual Precure and continue on to her destination but this got Emiru to be persistent and follow her to the supermarket! (With hilarious results!)
No 6: Hug-Tan's new words.
The three girls were at Harry's salon when Hug-Tan started calling Homare and Saya by their first names which got both girls squeaking in joy. But Hug-Tan started crying when Hana tried to get her to say her name. (Maybe Hana need to be less aggressive when dealing with babies)
No 5: Supermarket Sweep!
|Never get involved with a horde of crazed housewives unless you have superspeed like Ruru...|
Ruru has no problems getting two dozens of eggs from the crazed housewives who were rushing for it. She encountered Emiru who tried her best to help others but failed badly. Although Ruru told her that the people she help were happy with her thoughts.
No 4: The Aisaki Household.
This of course make Emiru very happy and invited Ruru to her place which she agreed. The Aisaki Family is an extremely rich family with a house that resembles a castle and her parents cosplaying as Victoria era characters.
No 3: Music is Soul!
|This is clearly paying homages to 90s anime rock songs like Macross 7, Armored Police Metal Jack and Slam Dunk|
When Ruru pointed out she does not know what Music is, Emiru immediately showed her prized possession which is a red electronic guitar. Emiru played a gentle number which got Ruru to feel very strange about her feelings and when Emiru's douche brother, Masato commented that guitar is not a girl's instrument, it got Ruru so mad that she reprimanded Masato on the spot.
|Best Ruru Face ever!|
Ruru immediately got into a little fit which Emiru was amazed by her feelings and thank Ruru for standing up for her.
No 2: You are a Hero!
An Oshimaida was attacking the city and the girls went into battle. Emiru want to help but Ruru told her it is dangerous. But Emiru told her that she wanted to help people because it is the right thing to do and proceed to save a boy from being attacked by the Oshimaida.
The girls saved the two of them and Cure Yell praised her for being a hero!
No 1: Do you want to be a Precure, Ruru?
After the battle, Emiru was shaken that she just risked her life to save the boy but Ruru told her that she did something similar too. (From the previous episode) Emiru realised they are kindred spirits and want Ruru to become a Precure.
|Coming soon, Erutto Precure! (Or not!)|
|Derp Face again!|
Which Ruru turned her down immediately however Emiru was persistent towards her. Although Papple was wondering why Ruru is behaving oddly...
This is one of the most funniest and best episode yet for this season. We knew that Emiru's stubbornness from her debut episode but this reach a new level especially Ruru's deadpan tone was a match against Emiru's antics.
We do get to know more about Emiru especially her relationship with her dysfunctional family. Her family are clearly living in their own world and her older brother, Masato is a sexist. It actually gave a chance for future episodes on how Emiru will overcome her family relationship which I hope to see it.
Ruru was clearly affected by Emiru's song which awaken the anger emotion in her. Although I am seeing a pattern now since the beginning of this arc. From Hana, Ruru learn about Happiness in a family. From Saya, she learn the Joy of taking care of others. This episode is awakening the Anger in her which I am suspecting the last emotion could be Sadness as she has yet to experience loss. Once all emotions awaken, it is possible that a miracle will happen to Ruru at the end of the arc. (Chinese readers might already know what idiom I am referring to)
Overall, a great episode especially the amount of face and over the top expressions in this episode and how Ruru and Emiru's encounter will change their lives forever. Next episode, Homare became the centre of a feud between her two classmates as we get closer to the conclusion of Ruru's arc. Until then, see you in the next post!
