Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san Episode 10: Fangs for the Holidays

I imagine the writers of the show were like “You know all those traditional Holiday Specials? Let’s cram them all into episode!” Works for me.

Vampire Akari

Akari the vampire?

Nope. We kicked off the Holiday Extravaganza with Halloween. Akari and Sophie invited everyone over. This time it wasn’t just Ellie and Hinata.

This episode was another straightforward one so not much to fully discuss. We’re doing another highlight reel.

Yuu X Sakuya. Gothic zombie couple.

It’s moments like this I share the sadness of Ellie not getting her wish of becoming a vampire after her body had fully matured.

Nice views

At least her future bride will please her physically, provided she doesn’t dress up like a sexy werewolf very often.

Now we go to the best part of the Halloween segment. So to break up the bickering future couple Yuu reintroduced herself to Ellie.

Sakuya’s reaction?

“This Yuu is MINE! Go flirt with that troubled Yuu or the sexy Yu instead.”

Smooth Hinata.

Sakuya’s encore. Sadly we didn’t get to hear her sing. I’m sure Miss AJ was also disappointed.

Let’s move on to the Christmas segment. This time the main plot was Sophie having trouble picking a present for Akari in case she got her name in the box. We all know what Akari and Hinata really wanted for Christmas but Ellie had a wonderful suggestion.

You say “no” now Sophie but think about your future honeymoon with Akari.

On to the best moment of the Christmas segment.

Sadly this would be the last we saw of them in the episode. I’m pretty sure we all know what they’re up to during New Year’s…Oh yes indeed.

They picked each other at random but let’s not kid ourselves. Kumaria-Sama is helping pave the way for their future together.

Sophie's present

Remember the cold hands? Payoff.

Not much to say about the New Year’s segment so I’ll end it with another tweet by our friend Sir Nickolas.

It’s a good thing Avengers: Infinity War came out when it did. It helped make this running gag funnier.

Wonderful Gay Holidays episode.

    Wolfwomen Hinata was adorable! As is the Crying Akari bit!

    Ellie is my favorite. No question.

    Yuu/Sakuya Ship is sailing strong! Amazing.

    That Avengers reference Tweet made my day! Well done Sir!

      Ellie is an honorable warrior.

      It ain’t sailing when it’s already canon.

      You wouldn’t say that if you were on Twitter and people barraged you with the meme. Only reason I didn’t mind when he did was because he’s a good friend of mine and it fits this anime because it’s a running gag.

        Yeah dont have twitter and now kinda glad. And I’m bad at “ship” terms (is that even a term thing? hmmm.) and when to use them. Man I’m such a weeb. (I’ll just be in the corner contemplating life.)

        Yes. Trust me. Twitter is more a necessary poison than a necessity because I run a blog and made some cool friends there.

        I personally say “ship” when the pairing isn’t official or aren’t as obvious as a couple like Sayaka X Yuu.

      Personally I ship whenever the couple in question has my support, regardless of canon status. (I can’t reply to your other comment, so I did it here)

    You and Sakuya were the best in this episode as a couple.

    I do understand why is Ellie so upset about her not being turned few years later. It is a shame.

    Ellie really wants Hinata, who seems to be ok with it as she knows her beloved is airhead and mostly interested in someone else. Ellie seems to be fine with being a second choice.

    I loved the episode, but really hope if it gets a second season they get full on holiday episodes next time….Didn’t barely get to enjoy the snow 😦

    Still, very much loved the episode, and Akari is slowly getting it through her head the disadvantages of turning. I don’t think this will fully stop her, but I think it’ll make it so when Akari truly requests it, Sophie will be convinced that Akari’s making the decision soundly, and not just out of a whim of her libido.

    What’s this? Hinata wearing a Wolf girl costume? Now that is one hell of a gift before Christmas, Santa is really trying to spoil me (although this is no where near my satisfaction). Them Hinata x Ellie moments are as cute as a button, let’s hope that Best Girl can find happiness being in love with the lecherous vampire.

    Akarin and Sophie are as cute as ever but there’s only so much sugar my body can handle, they gotta take things to another level (not THAT level though).

    MORE Yuu x Sakuya please…………….or even a Special Series that focus on them.

      I’m sure she’ll will manage. She’ll have all eternity to keep her in check after all.

      Gotta accept that this is one of those Baby Steps yuri shows dood.

      A segment or episode dedicated to them would be heavenly.

      Agreed, I’d love a Yuu x Sakuya + daughter yuri family spinoff.

      I’m seriously considering making a yuri family visual novel now… I even have a story for it that I wrote years ago ^^

      We could have the “teenage daughter (of yuri mothers) starting to date girls” part too, hihi.

    Ohh, I like this episode. It makes Girls Club anime history by having the first scene that quite undeniably implies that the girls went home to make love… ^^

    First Ellie shows up in those “please just have sex with me already” clothes. Then she picks a fight with Hinata right away (partly because she’s disappointed Hinata wore something that isn’t clean). And then when everyone leaves, she disappears without a word, follows Hinata until she’s alone, makes an excuse about walking her home, blushes in front of her, and takes her in another direction instead (apparently back to her own place), telling Hinata that she’s going to leave her behind if she doesn’t come.

    Aww, Hinata, aren’t you a lucky girl ^^

    And Sakuya and Yuu got a lovely Christmas all alone… I hope they got lucky too.

    It’s only Sophie now who needs a little awakening.

    My tweets pretty much sum up my feelings about this week’s ep.

    Ellie is sooooooo good. And yes, if only she was a little older before becoming a vampire she’d have a killer body then.

    Yuu and Sakuya probably had a great time that evening. Great to see some more of that couple getting screen time.

    All in all another great ep.

    Best episode so far! The gayness was stronger than ever. Ellie x Hinata moments are my favorite. We can see how much Ellie’s fallen for Hinata. I hope they hook up soon. They’re so cute together. Akari hinting she wants to be a vampire. Baby steps.

    Sakuya x Yuu is Canon. Too bad we can’t see the rest of their Christmas. But I have my own scenes on how good it was. Oh yea, so good.

    Akari: I’m a vampire!
    Sophie: Damn you Ellie, I wanted to turn her!

    I want to see an Ellie x Sexy Yuu crossover now. I’m sure Sexy Yuu could turn on the charm, even if Ellie’s not secretly Ellieasuka.

    Some cute Sayaka x Yuu moments. Too bad their daughter didn’t show up too.

    You know what this boiling pot needs? Ice! Sophie is not the greatest cook.

    All the girls picked out great gifts for their girlfriends. I want to read that octopus/human yuri manga now.

    I was thinking that the sunrise would be a good romantic moment, despite any ash risks. I’m glad Sophie and Ellie thought the same.

      Pretty sure that’s what she thought deep down.

      An epic crossover that would be.

      She knew it was their moms’ special time together and didn’t want to interrupt.

      Yup.

      All the yuri manga on the show would make pretty good reads.

      For the greater good.

        That was the right plan for Christmas, but I think she could have joined her moms at Halloween.

        Sophie has excellent taste in manga and anime. Most relatable character of 2018, easily.

    It’s a nice holiday celebration episode. I like how Akari surprised Sophie by trying to dress up like vampire. Too bad Ellie and Sophie won’t turn her into one.

    But yes, this episode has a lot of nice Hinata and Ellie moments.
