Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid S Episode 5: Of Raivarus and Jobs

We got the backstory to Tohru and Elma’s beef and Ilulu finally looked for a job.

Elma Long HairLong hair Elma this episode. Excellent.

Part 1 saw Miss Kobayashi and Tohru ran into Elma at the shopping district. Miss Kobayashi casually asked if the two dragons always hated each other. They said they didn’t. Thus we got the backstory of their first meeting in their world. Tohru observed human adults doing human adult things, meaning acting like complete idiots when she heard a crowd mention the arrival of a “deity”. When she got a better look at the deity she instantly detected her dragon essence.

To sum their first meeting Tohru wondered why an Order Dragon granted miracles and provided for humans instead of eating human sacrifices as Elma mentioned last episode. Elma’s response? “Because their food tastes better than they do so I help make their lives better and they cook for me.” Tohru meanwhile was there to observe and judge whether to leave Elma be or do something about her. Elma suggested the two go on a journey to judge whether humanity was worth keeping around or wiping out.

Dragon Tohru vs Dragon ElmaMuch time passed and things seemingly went well until the two had a big argument. A palace was erected to worship Elma as a goddess but Tohru demolished it, saying its true purpose was similar to how humans use religion to abuse their power, especially against non-believers. Elma was like “I know this wasn’t what I had in mind BUT THEIR FOOD IS SOOOOOO GOOD!” The two had a kaiju battle until they had enough and went their separate ways until meeting again in “our” world.

Tohru and Elma disagreeing with Kobayashi's conclusionMiss Kobayashi concluded the two knew each other so well they even fought together, meaning they’re actually great friends. The short skits this episode show moments in the past of the two being close proving she’s right.

Jealous Tohru lashes out at IluluIn Part 2 we joined Ilulu lazing about at home until Miss Kobayashi scolded her for being a freeloader and to get a job already. One of Ilulu’s suggestions was to work at the same office building as Miss Kobayashi and Tohru seen here was like “DAMN YOU FOR WANTING TO WORK THERE AND DAMN ELMA FOR WORKING THERE!”. Tohru accompanied her to look for work. Some examples included a butcher and a flower shop but despite greatly calming down since her debut Ilulu still had the Chaos Dragon instinctual desire to devour and destroy. This upset her.

Ilulu and the gang meet AidaTohru thought it’d be hard for Ilulu to find a job when she saw some girls to play with. They led them to the Oboro Shop where they met up with Kanna and Riko. They went inside to meet the owner Miss Aida. Ilulu noticed a lot of kids came to the shop and that was because it’s a candy store. Upon hearing this Ilulu asked to work there. Miss Aida noticed how much she wanted it and gave her the job. Besides, her grandson didn’t seem interested in taking over for her.

Her grandson doesn’t seem like a bad boy but I have no interest in talking about him so let’s skip to the main reason she wanted to work at the candy store. In short she loved children and wanted to interact and play with them. Grandson offered to show her the ropes of working at the store along with some games to play with the kids. Thus her delightful character development continued.

Great stuff as always. Next time it looks like we will get glimpses of the various human-dragon pairs such as Kanna X Riko, Bobby X Fafnir and Lucoa X Shouta the shota. Hopefully they tone down the shotacon jokes with the third pair this season.

    It’s definitely interesting to learn how Tohru and Elma met each other. I guess they might make a good pairing as opposites attract. Still it becomes clear what Elma was talking about in the last episode. It’s obvious that she just wanted food all along.

    Still, I find the girl asking Ilulu about her huge breasts pretty funny. Don’t care too much about the grandson.

      If Miss Kobayashi weren’t around I might care about their dynamic but apart from inevitable fanart it’s just a neat backstory.

      That was one of the best parts of the episode along with Ilulu in her new candy store uniform.

      Forgot to post a screen grab of Kanna and Riko with matching hairpins. Will rectify that.

    Surprised you didn’t mention it, so I guess I will have to. Didn’t Tohru and Elma kiss in the middle of their fight? Sure, they were in Dragon form, and about to fire lasers at each other, but still!

    Another Fantastic Episode!

    Long haired Elma is truly lovely!

    “Wow! Why do you have such Big Breasts?” “Whoa! An elementary schooler’s blazing fastball of innocent sexual harassment!” That was adorable and hilarious!

    Matching hairpins! So Precious!

    And about them toning down the shotacon jokes, I doubt it, but we’ll see.

    Can’t wait for next week and more Kanna x Riko goodness!

      Elma is so good.

      That was indeed funny.

      Bless those two.

      Yes I know the manga doesn’t hold back. Just hope the anime will take it down a notch.

      Always pumped for more of those little sweethearts together.

    Lucky Riko has moments of bliss every episode and gets to spend lots of time with Kanna offscreen. It always makes me happy to see them together.

    Fantasy world Elma is so lovely. I hope she eventually quits her office job and goes back to being a wild, long-haired goddess ^^

    The kids in this anime are such cuties.

    A great episode filled with backstory and a yuri dragon kiss.

    Honestly it doesn’t bother me too much if that’s the Ilulu pairing. Yuri is always preferable but I hate love triangles.
