Harukana Receive Episode 8: The Hype Mama Cometh!

The Hype Twins greatly blessed us with their magnificence but as the show progressed there was more to get hyped for besides the gayness. This time we were blessed the eagerly anticipated return of the one and only Hype Mama! I won’t ask for us to find whether she lived up to the hype because I KNEW SHE WOULD since she was first shown!

We started the episode right where the last one left off with Hype Mama surprising everyone. She assured her gorgeous twins that Papa still existed. She happily hugged Kanata, glad to see her back in action.

Since arriving at the island Haruka felt a dormant superiority over everyone due to her being the tallest and most well-endowed (or something like that). However, when Hype Mama arrived she realized there were sexier beasts out there in the world. All that worry quickly washed away upon receiving Hype Mama’s blessing. She may be dating a small cutie but she cannot deny a mature beauty when she sees one.

Yes Akari. Those are the abs of a supreme goddess.

Akari was beyond pumped to receive training from the supreme goddess but Claire had other plans for the tsundere with the great tooshie, much to her dismay. I don’t blame her. Look at dat midriff yo. Of course Akari would get turned on.

The scary part was that she was RUSTY.

No sooner did the training begin when Marissa showed her incredible power. The scary part was that not being anywhere close to the strength she had in her glory days.

Nice catch Kanata!

The first lesson was for HaruKana to catch one of Hype Mama’s spikes. They were outmatched but over time realized the key was for them to work together to catch one, which they did. The lesson was for the two to not only improve their blocking and receiving but be able to combine them (Haruka’s blocking and Kanata’s receiving).

During break time Marissa gave Haruka some advice. Haruka had difficulty thinking while on the move but assured her she’d improve over time. Marissa told her that another important facet was essentially to strengthen her relationship with her girlfriend: Empathy.

Afterward the team talked about when Kanata and the Hype Twins first met during a junior tournament finals. Emily was more dependent on Claire back then.

As we recall The Justice Team won that tournament.

Thus the teams became friends and continued training with Hype Mama. After the flashback Akari was formally welcomed to the Beach Volleyball Club and it finally became official.

Time passed and it was already New Year’s. After making wishes Haruka got a call from a certain someone.

NaruAya were at the airport waiting for their flight to Kyoto. Point of the call was to try and help Kanata and Narumi patch things up since their last meeting didn’t end on a positive note. Haruka and the others agreed it would be best for the two to talk things out.

The twins knew what was coming.

Yup. It’s one of those scenes. You know. Where our heroes have to get somewhere ASAP. The twins knew what was coming…along with CG loathers. Make sure you had a barf bag nearby.

Put simply this was the most dramatic episode of the show and it kept things simple and clean. Kanata got her words in, Narumi was probably crying or too shy to show her weakness so she quietly acknowledged her promise of becoming a National Champion with Haruka. Remember, the promise they made was for both of them to become champions. It’s just that fate had different plans and now they have to do it separately. Point being that as we saw at the beginning of the anime this is all leading to a championship match between HaruKana and NaruAya, which we will hopefully get to see animated.

    Such a fantastic show this always is~

    So much crying was done during this episode T_T

    Am glad that Kanata and Narumi finally got to clear up things and finally officially break up with each other instead of still having that past lingering on their minds. Now the both of them can focus fully on the future and the present.

    I laughed quite a bit during the preparation for the drive segment. One of the better done iterations really.

      It was emotional.

      Yup. Much needed closure so both can move on and snuggle with their respective busty honeys and focus on their destined battle.

      You know some people have a grudge against Japanese CG. But yes it was a fun scene.

    Crazy driver really is she, even Lewis Hamilton would be scared from her.

    The final closure for them two was needed and done actually pretty decently, no words needed.

    Woooo! Those abs of Hype Mama 😀 I actually kept playing that part back for 3 times LOL 😛 It probably wasn’t that hard for her to bring back her abs after giving birth to twins.

    I bet during Marissa’s glory years her spikes were probably too powerful that it’s somewhat impossible to see. But her awesomeness is still there so that’s great. And Emily was so cute as a child looking very dependent on Claire 😀

    I actually want to see a proper match between the twins and HaruKana but this time they swap partners. I hope they’d do that.

    And with a driver like Marissa I think it’s not a good idea to sit on very rear part of the car chances of motion sickness is very high, however, chances of not dying later is also very high. Since Marissa is awesome she can drift a heavy vehicle like that full with passengers.

    I think Narumi was just too shy, no crying. But at least now, no regrets from both parties, everyone are still friends/partners 😛

      They are hypnotic after all so we all replayed that magical scene several times.

      For sure Marissa’s power back then was godlike. Young Emily was adorable.

      That would be an interesting match up.

      Yup. She’s a supreme goddess after all.

    The Hype Mom delivered the hype as promised! Man what a great ep and it’s so nice to finally see Marissa in a scene that’s not just a flashback. Wow what a woman she is, tall, blonde, absolutely gorgeous, powerful volleyball player, and those abs!!! Akari was literally all of us during that scene. I must have watched it like 5 times and it’s jaw dropping each time.

    Also I really liked the scene at the end with Narumi and Kanata, that was really good and I liked how it was done.

    All in all it was another great ep, looking forward to the next one!

  7. Hype Mom/Marissa calling the Volleyball partners “married” and blessing HaruKana was glorious to see. Also, did she indirectly bless her daughter’s relationship too, there?

    Hype Mom indeed answers the hype, and spikes it into the ground with her awesomeness! …And is also a reckless driver, apparently. Still, she has the skills for it, it seems, so it’s probably fine.

    And I really liked that scene was Kanata & Narumi…simple, yet effective. A thousand words in a single gesture, as it were.

      She have HaruKana her blessings.

      She also has hypnotic abs.

      Glad to see the two resolved their issues. Now they can prepare for the destined battle and snuggle with their respective new meaty lovers.

    I’m loving the blatant “this is romantic” statements in this show.

    Haruka, Kanata, and Akari all got a chance to drool over Marissa.

    Marissa’s driving was quite fun.

      Yup. All natural.

      She’s a supreme goddess after all so no surprise these gay cuties were blown away by her fantastic physique.

      She should be in racing games.

    It’s nice to see Claire’s and Emily’s mom. Liked how she says that partnering someone is like marrying someone. Is she implying the obvious to Haruka and Kanata?

    It’s nice to see Kanata clearing up loose ends with Narumi. It’s obvious that Narumi is still shy, even if Kanata was her partner before.
