This episode began the 2nd half of the show which saw Jahy take on gardening along with an unexpected freeloader.
Jahy saw Bosslady planting tomato seeds. At first Jahy thought nothing of it until she mentioned the bountiful harvest from tomato plants. Ever prideful she took to growing her own tomato plant in secret. Unfortunately it initially didn’t go as well as Bosslady’s.
Through hard work and lots of care Jahy cared for her plant named Tomarou. It was quite touching…until we got the punchline. Remember kids, make sure to read what kinds of seeds you bought before buying.
Part B had Jahy (and Tomarou) “welcome” an unexpected freeloader, Landlady. She got into a fight with Bosslady and ran away from home. Most of her time hitching with Jahy was spent with our heroine trying to kick her out and her bribing her way into staying. Also that no matter how old you get people can still be brats in their mid-20’s to late 80’s.
We’ll resume Part 2 in a bit as we skipped to Part 3. Jahy had a meeting with Druj to discuss their Mana Crystal piece gathering progress. Druj of course was doing quite well but ever the masochist punished herself for doing “well” instead of “excellently”. She asked Jahy to scold her. The fact I repeated this over 20 times shows how much I loved this scene and Druj. One of the best maso-lesbians in anime yet. Bless her.
When it’s Jahy’s turn to share her progress she of course couldn’t tell Druj how badly it was going so she changed the topic to Super Maso. Just like her presentation Druj spoke words for Jahy saying the Demon Realm’s #2 already defeated her, which of course wasn’t true. Jahy, ever prideful, went along with it until the two looked noticed the ruckus outside the window. When the dust settled it was Super Maso. Jahy tried again to save her ass and Druj bought her lie. Unfortunately a more determined to prove herself Jahy’s greatest servant Druj rushed off before paying the cafe bill. Jahy’s pride bit her in the butt once more.
We went back to Part B. Jahy realized Landlady was quite spoiled when the phone rang. Petty Landlady refused to answer so Jahy picked it up. Bosslady wanted to apologize but Landlady was stubborn. Finally Jahy scolded her to stop being selfish. A grateful Landlady returned home but not before revealing the reason she ran away in the first place. It was “tragic”.
We ended the episode with Jahy again talking about restoring the demon realm as ASAP so she could make the Demon Lord proud when we were shown another smol, sexier demon. All hints point to her being the Demon Lord. Could she also be a rocker based on Jahy’s past encounter with the mysterious neighbor a while back? We’ll find out next time, maybe. Looking forward to it.
As always no manga spoilers on the sexy smol demon’s identity.
