This episode was easier to follow as the amount of information wasn’t as abundant as in the premiere.
After wishing for a way to protect Harajuku from the Scoopers and the missile a giant parfait appeared. However, along with that came a giant dome that covered all Harajuku. Our heroines wished to keep their city safe from harm and that’s where the dome came in.
With everything that happened so far Mari, still uneasy from the previous episode, was close to losing her mind. Her sarcasm levels went through the roof and her sanity was slowly draining. Thankfully Kotoko and especially Rito were there to ease her worries.
Unfortunately the dome not only interfered with all electrical devices but kept everyone outside of Harajuku, including our heroines’ families, from getting in. Rito tried cutting the wall but to no avail due to it regenerating after her attack.
Mari, still panicking, held on to Rito as the gang tried finding a way out by going through the subway when suddenly the power came back on. Very mysterious.
Outside of the subway they ran into Rito’s cat friend. When she tried communicating with it it hissed at Misa and/or Ebifuruya, further raising suspicions toward the two from many viewers.
Mari worried there wouldn’t be anything to eat in the dome but it turned out that the donuts that the Scoopers turned into after being defeated by our heroines were edible. Suddenly the Scoopers began blowing their way into the dome. The trio transformed to take them on once more.
Before the Scoopers could break in the dome responded to our heroines’ desire to protect their town and covered all Harajuku in some kind of pink barrier. Ebifuruya explained that they shifted the inside of the dome to hyperspace, or the titular URAHARA as it were.
The second wave of Scoopers broke in, led by what could only be described as a giant multiple eyed mutant corn giant with a vacuum mouth.
It was a tough adversary. Rito even had to save Mari from a giant body slam but with perseverance and Kotoko’s analysis they were able to defeat it. Of the two girls who want Rito’s taco I like Mari best. Still best girl for me despite her complaining because said complaining didn’t come off as annoying to me. Anyway, there was interesting part where Ebifuruya referred to the giant as an old friend and also said its sacrifice wasn’t in vain after its defeat.
With the 2nd Scooper wave beaten our heroines took a breather but were then greeted by people who were acting very strangely. We’ll see what that’s all about next time.
