Most of this episode was more of the same except for the last part.
For some reason I found Miko’s brother quietly staring at her having a nightmare (thinking she had one of “those” dreams) weirdly amusing.
Stay tuned after the ED to find out what Miko actually saw on the horror show.
In Part 1 Miko and Lil’ Bro watching a horror show. She of course saw something scary. To calm herself she went out for a drink at the nearby vending machine. Lil’ Bro asked for one too. While there she dropped a coin and as she went to pick it up noticed a tiny old man ghost. She found it strangely adorable and tried luring it out. As the screen grab shows it was a grave mistake on her part. This would be one of two very close calls this episode where Miko’s so terrified the ghosts almost saw through her poker face. Luck just so happened to be on her side.
In Part 2 Lil’ Bro started worrying about big sis’ recent strange behavior. He asked one of his classmates for advice. Another one thought maybe she had a boyfriend. He didn’t believe it at first but his concern for her was too great.
Full body shots another time. We didn’t get much “just because” sexiness last episode. Fortunately people of culture were blessed with a Miko bath scene. There’s an obvious catch. This was the second close call of the episode. While Miko blessed the enlightened with her magnificence she again came close to alerting a bathroom ghost of her ability. As mentioned before luck was on her side as Lil’ Bro joined her for a bath. They were able to clear the air about the “boyfriend” thing.
In Part 3 Miko was set for school as she contemplated about ghost sightings becoming more frequent every passing day. Things didn’t get any better at the dining room as shown here. Once again she’s in a fight for survival and protection. The important part came when they brought up a pudding she bought at the store earlier in the episode (plus something extra due to a ghost cashier). Lil’ Bro told her to label her food as to avoid fights like the one she had with dad last time. She held on this time. Before going to school she remembered something and went back for the pudding.
Not gonna lie, this got me. I can’t stand this trope but this one time I’ll admit it got me in the kokoro.
Good stuff as usual.
Could this running gag of mine come to an end next episode? Will I finally use another screen grab?
