Machikado Mazoku 2.3: Hotspot Shenanigans

Honestly I’d rather skip the first half and talk about the second because the first was so good words cannot do it justice but I’ll do my best to keep it brief. It must be seen to be believed.

Shamiko's interpretation of what the Internet is

Part 1 was basically Shamiko having no idea what the Internet was or how it worked. The amount of jokes they got from the setup was surprising. Note: I know Shamiko’s technologically inept so I’m laughing at the silly jokes, not mocking her. I do not want to ruin the brilliance for anyone so instead I’ll focus on the plot.

Jelly MomoMikan showed Shamiko her “Twitter” account but Momo wouldn’t share hers. Mikan said it’s like a digital diary. Shamiko thought this was a great way to find out what would make Momo smile. These two being a baka couple of course Shamiko couldn’t try the direct approach. We need material to write more chapters/episodes after all. Eventually she got her own “Twitter” account but still had to ask Momo directly for her Username. Lots of spinning later and Momo followed her. I’m not 100% sure what emotion Momo conveyed in the screen shot but considering she’s lonely without Shamiko she’s either jealous or annoyed by Shamiko and Mikan casually chatting like it’s a regular weekday. Let’s go with jelly.

Momo and Shamiko pity LilithPart B had Momo ask Lilith about her relationship with Daddy Box long ago. Lilith told the story of how miserable she was before Shamiko could communicate with her. Our heroines pitied her. Momo kinda felt bad for all the times she abused the statue but changed her mind because Lilith always started it.

One painful off-screen seal removal later Momo tweeted her plan to go on a spa trip with Lilith so long as she accompanied her to keep her out of trouble.

Lilith and Shamiko swap bodies againRefusing to let Momo “look down on her” Lilith “convinced” Shamiko to order gaudy Goth punk clothes online to show who’s top babe. Momo reacted exactly as one would expect, desperately wanting to punish Lilith but holding back to not hurt her sweetie’s body.

Sion notices Shamiko has a different tailSuddenly a wild Sion appeared. She’s seen earlier pulling a heavy cart but here she was again. She wanted to share her experiments with our heroines again but noticed “Shamiko”s tail looked familiar. She remembered. Oh yes. She’s off to start another experiment. We’ll probably learn more next episode.

Lilith and Momo at the spaBecause Lilith couldn’t stay in Shamiko’s body for long Momo booked a trip to the same spa from last season to Lilith’s dismay who wanted to visit a fancy one. After making Lilith pay for the trip with her sweat Lilith wanted to dive in but Momo preferred keeping watch again. Lilith saw this as a chance to find a weakness in the mahou shoujo and made her join.

Lilith is scared of the darkHowever, because Shamiko’s power had somewhat grown the body swap energy changed the weather, leading to a blackout at the spa. Lilith, great witch of eternal darkness, revealed she’s scared of the dark because of the trauma of being sealed away before she learned how to properly use magic. The irony wasn’t lost on Momo but she lit up her phone with exercise videos.

Lilith sees Momo's scarsOnce the lights came back Momo joined Lilith in the bath after all. Lilith noticed Momo’s scars. She preferred not talking about them. Afterward it looked like the two were on better terms but Momo pushed the record button and she let Lilith know…

Great stuff as always.

    The first half was priceless and very relatable. Shamiko trying to use the internet is like teaching my father how to use the internet. It’s obvious why Shamiko really wants to follow Momo so she can learn more about her.

    It’s nice to learn more about Lilith, although Momo has more things to blackmail her with. Still, it’s not enough to stop Lilith for falling into the debt trap of buy now pay later. Not too surprising she didn’t do anything else crazy, given that Momo is around.

    I want to see Shamiko looking up “How to make a magical girl smile” on the internet and wind up on a sketchy yuri site. It might make her a ever so little less dense….maybe.

    Another Fantastic Episode!

    The first part was so funny! I know you like Momo’s Profile descriptions! “Into: Bodybuilding, Cardio Exercises, Weightlifting….” “Wars are won through punches.” And Momo reading books about muscles. So Good.

    Shamiko trying so heard to see her sweet heart’s smile is so heart warming! Ganbare, Shamiko! Be a great future wife and find a way to make your sweetie smile!

    Part 2 was also fantastic! Momo’s and Lilith’s dynamic is so much fun! Lilith constantly getting on Momo’s nerves, only stopping from taking it out on Lilith for her love of Shamiko and protecting her body is great. But Momo being able blackmail Lilith was so good!

    Also love how the Ancestue had Shamiko’s eyes while she’s in there. Its so cute!

    Can’t wait for next week! So looking forward to those 2 new demons anime debut! Fun Fact: They appeared in the background in the Season 1 Finale, when Shamiko was going around town looking for Momo.

    We’ve all been novices to the internet once, so the first half was really funny.

    Lilth back in action, seeing her with Momo was really fun, especially we saw another side of her that’s afraid of the dark. Even if Momo, shrewd girl that she is, recorded that as blackmail material.

    overall another fun ep that really made me laugh.

    Too bad Lilith’s fashion sense was too high level for those but the enlightened. Seeing Shamiko in more outfits like that would have been nice~

    It was definitely entertaining watching the struggle to learn the internet, but she’s lucky she had a Momo. When i was learning the internet, there were times I ended up charging my parents money (but my dad knew enough to talk them down out of it, since I was a minor), and many other lessons were learned, often the not easy way. Still a great segment XD I do like how it was really just the fault of Lilith that anything bad actually happened. Shamiko was doing a good job keeping in mind everything Momo taught her, and just all around being the sort of cautious anyone should be with the internet.

    I always find myself laughing a bit when Shamiko is “disguising” her true intent with something that may as well be her saying “I like Momo” XD

    I know Lilith can be something, but I do like the relationship her and Shamiko have. It’s kind of like a kid and her grandma. It’s nice ~

    Shamiko learning how to Internet was precious.

    Yeah, I agree that Momo was a bit jealous watching Shamiko/Mikan chatter on Twatter. She doesn’t want to be left out.

    Despite how taxing it was keeping up with her, Momo and Lilith had a pretty nice outing and Momo learned a juicy piece of info about her so it was totally worth the pain. The funny thing about it is that Lilith wanted to find any weakness that Momo might have had but she ended up exposing her own. Also, Lilith forgot who controlled the purse strings and so had to be punished.

    Shamiko learning just how big the Internet is was a hilarious sequence. The whole first half of the ep was pure comedy gold. Shamiko is so precious.

    Momo and Lilith’s outing to the spa was a chaotic adventure as to be expected. At least Lilith finally got her chance to soak at the spa once the power came back on. Nice to see Lilith in action as well, hope we get to see her out and about again at some point in the future.
