Wonder Egg Priority Episode 3: Blonde Bomber

This time Ai met the blonde member of the soon to be quartet.

Rika

Must be a fan of both Kill la Kill and Xenoblade Chronicles.

We began with said blonde slaying a pervy Wonder Killer. Like Ai the girl she rescued disappeared too and the person she fought for was represented in a bronze statue.

Ai meets Rika

As Ai got ready for her next battle Rika arrived and suddenly her bruised ribs ached but just as quickly the pain faded away. Rika relied on her cuteness to borrow money for eggs from Ai. She followed her outside the real world for more. The two went to visit Neiru at the hospital.

Neiru not cool with Rika

I went “d’awww” as Neiru smiled when Ai came but immediately frowned at Rika. Rika claimed she used to be a junior idol and Neiru should join her. Ai wondered if she was cute enough to join.

Rika checking Ai's legs

Rika was like “Nice legs. Maybe a backup dancer”.

Ai resents the teacher

Yeah. I had a feeling Ai resented the counselor because he hit on her mom and was succeeding. I think there’s more to it but for now we’ll go with this.

Ai not cool with Rika's attitude

Ai’s opinion of Rika changed when they discussed their friends. Rika was like “I need my ‘wallet’ back. She died recently and daddy said pretty people don’t need to pay for anything because others do it for them”. I had a feeling Rika was hiding her true feelings or she really did see her pudgy fangirl as only someone to “milk dry”.

Ai argued Rika picked her friends based on looks.

Rika: So was Koito cute?

Ai: Cute but more so pretty.

Rika: Prettier than Neiru?

Ai: Neiru’s cool but no match for Koito.

Rika: See? Looks.

Later when Rika pushed herself into sleeping over with Ai Neiru texted like “Dood. She’s a hussy. Did you see her hit on adult guys? Not to be trusted”. Ai thought she was just pushy.

Koito and Teacher

AHA! Knew there was more to her resentment but Ai ran off so was it really what she suspected? Could be but I’ll keep this on hold for now.

Ai and Rika about to synchronize

Ai and Rika about to synchronize. The Slendermen told Ai she ended up in Rika’s Act of Silent Egg Zone because her feelings were stronger at that point. Ai didn’t have time to question Rika as she threw her egg and two girls “hatched”.

Yu-Yu fangirls

It’s here some peeps’ theory about the “hatchlings” already being dead was confirmed. They were hardcore fangirls whose idol, Yu-Yu, committed suicide and they followed.

Rika bit by Seeno Evil

As expected because our heroines didn’t get along they didn’t work together properly.

Ai sees Rika's knife wounds

They found shelter which was when Ai saw what we did in the bathtub. She made her fess up.

Chiemi

As suspected Rika’s “wallet” was actually her beloved. It’s the dark side of OshiBudo. Hardcore fangirl was so devoted to their unpopular idol they would steal to afford stuff for them. Idol didn’t want her to continue down a dark path so she tried to make fangirl get over her but worded it very wrongly. Rika was like “She was a fatty but she’s MY fatty and I want her back”.

Cool Ai

The next chapter of “Ai’s Regret Journal” she admitted to resenting Koito for possibly “playing hickey” with Counselor Man but the two never talked it over because Ai didn’t want to hear it or Koito didn’t want to talk about it. Whichever the case, most likely Ai yelling at herself for not talking to Koito about it, Ai was willing to go down with Koito had she asked. Thus we got another badass Ai moment.

Hardcore Fangirl Wonder KillerHardcore Fanlady Wonder KillerCool Ai and Rika

The Wonder Killer this time was the darkER side of idol fandom. Thus Ai and Rika became a proper team. However, their badass moment was cut short. We’ll have to wait and see what happens next.

Great stuff yet again.

    evil cliffhanger!

    Really must have hit Rika hard knowing that Chiemi starved to death so she could be “good enough” for Rika ;_;

    Everyone seems to have a lot of baggage. I personally don’t think Koito was doing what Ai thought she was doing. That counselor is definitely after her mom, but I want to believe in Koito!

    Neiru needs to get back to health so she can dive with Ai!

      Hope the girls somehow find happiness with their loved ones.

      Precisely. We don’t know what happened between Koito and the counselor yet.

      The hype to see Neiru in action is so real. It MUST HAPPEN soon.

  2. The teacher and Ai’s mom don’t even seem to try and be subtle. I mean, he’s there almost every day it seems, even when Ai isn’t. I think the situation with Koito and him is not what Ai or maybe we expected, but yes, it’s better to hold off on theorizing too deeply for now.

    Rika at first glance seems to have a terrible personality, but like all the girls so far, I’m certain she’s got layers and is probably a pretty nice girl. She definitely cared for Chiemi, no matter what she might say.

    Neiru is so cute! I love Ai, but I think Neiru might be my favorite so far. I like how quickly she settled into her friendship with Ai and how she was a tad bit jelly when Rika showed up too. I imagine they’ll warm up to each other though as Rika starts to show her true self and drops her front.

    I’m still in love with this show and I can’t wait for the next episode!

      Yup. Counselor wants that hot mama booty. I don’t blame him. Still very sus. We’ll see what the truth brings.

      As I told Nick she reminded me of Matsuri. Felt really bad for both Chieri and her. I hope they all find happiness with their loved ones.

      Neiru was my hype girl from the start for obvious reasons and I’m super pumped for her eventually joining the team in Silent Egg.

      It’s one of the best so far.

    I really didn’t like Rika at first, but she’s growing on me. I think she and Neiru will never get along.

    As soon as I saw Rika’s weapon, I went oh. They’re box cutters, which people can use to self harm. I don’t think she did the cuts in the bathtub, and I think she’s telling the truth that they are old ones.

    Lots happening in these eps, each week’s we’re slowly unpacking it all and learning a bit more about what’s happening. I like it.

    Wasn’t really a big fan of Rika at first, but over the course of the ep and once she told her story, I liked her more. I hope she didn’t die at the end of the ep, I mean she’s part of the main cast, so I can’t see them killing her off just like that.

    Looking forward to when Neiru is back in action too. Really interested in learning more about her.

    Also that counselor is totally after Ai’s mom. I don’t know about Koito that might be a misunderstanding there when she walked in at that exact moment, but I guess time will tell.

    Looking forward to next week!

      She reminded me of Matsuri from Citrus so I waited before casting judgment.

      For obvious reasons Neiru’s the one I’m most interested in.

      It’s a nice touch how every battle so far revealed bits of Ai’s relationship with Koito.

      I agree. Counselor may not be a pedo but he still honi.

    At first I thought: “What a bitch this Rika girl!”, but obviously there was more to the story. Of course she can’t die yet, I think she’s gonna be back to normal once Ai has defeated the big bad.
    I’m really curious about Neiru’s backstory…it’ll probably be something tragic.
    I was convinced the teacher had somehow abused Ai or Koito, but I’m not so sure yet…from what we’ve gathered so far, Ai could’ve been just jealous of him because apparently Koito seemed to confide in him. I guess we’ll see, I’m really looking forward to the next few episodes!

    I love the little conversations that Ai and Neiru have over text. The one about “bedroom stuff” was particularly great.

    I think Koito went to the teacher to talk about stuff (most likely about her being bullied?) and got emotional about it. I don’t think they were doing anything like Ai probably imagined. If they were doing something they weren’t supposed to they would have been surprised if someone suddenly “caught” them but Koito didn’t look surprised when she saw Ai she looked almost relived? That doesn’t mean I don’t get weird vibes from the teacher.

    They tried really hard to make you not like Rika uh? But of course there is more to her behind that cynical facade.

    The scene in the stairs was SO COOL.

    The girl in the first episode said that as long as it doesn’t affect you eyes or heart you are fine so also long as she doesn’t get smashed while being petrified Rika should be fine.
