That was interesting.
We joined Sorawo eating in the college cafeteria when she was approached by a freshman named Akari Seto who somehow heard she had a sixth sense. Hence she asked her assistance in regards to ninja cats.
Kozakura’s rac-, tanuki.
Toriko and Kozakura thought this Akari woman was pulling Sorawo’s leg but took it a bit more seriously when she mentioned an urban legend about ninja cats. That along with Kozakura understanding there are many different kinds of fears. Also Kozakura got a visit from Otherside granny tanukis, hence her new friend…a raccoon. Lastly our heroines ordered an expensive looking vehicle while drunk and had it mailed to her house.
Sorawo was worried about going on this mission because she loved cats and didn’t want to fight the ninjas because of it. Toriko assured her it’d be fine. Besides, the Otherside was already calling so they had no choice.
When Sorawo told Akari about someone else joining them she asked if she was her friend. Sorawo had difficulty defining their relationship. Her reaction to Toriko’s introduction said it all.
They remind me of the Samurai Pizza Cats.
I won’t go over the battle but the “Otherside Hunters and Karate Akari” vs Ninja Cats is one of the best fight scenes on the show by far. I am not kidding.
Creepiest part of the episode.
Sorawo hoped the Ninja Cats’ true forms were monstrous but alas they’re just lanky super cats. This hit her hard. Cat lovers can definitely relate. She saw them rummaging Akari’s bag and she asked her if she’d something the cats wanted. She said no but Sorawo took a closer look, finding something inside her belly.
Once found Sorawo had an important contemplation before throwing the item far away for the cats to go after it. How they got back to their world was amusing. The episode ended with an expected bombshell as soon as Akari brought it up.
Let’s go over why Akari came to Sorawo for help. One day she started getting stalked by cats. She ignored it for a while but eventually it got worse and the Ninja Cats appeared. The item in question was a cat charm handed to her by her tutor. Who was the tutor? Satsuki of course.
Good stuff as always.
PS: Toriko was like “Guess Akari’s another partner in crime now” and Sorawo was like “DON’T SAY THAT! It’s, umm, uhhh…yeah”. Toriko’s Sorawo’s only partner in crime and she wants to keep it that way. Akari’s their “victim” should she join them again.
