Hello there! This is YUKI again! I can’t wait to attend ‘Anime Japan 2016’!
This episode of Phantom World it’s Reina’s turn to step into the spotlight. I can almost hear a scream of joy coming from the fans of Saori Hayami – the voice actor the character Reina. Let’s waste no time to dive into the content!
Synopsis of the fourth episode: Fake Family
As usual, Reina decides to indulge an all-you-can-eat deal, using the cash reward from the Phantom removal assignment.
Ever since she joined the “Neural Error Correction Office”, her life in general has much improved. After she parts with the rest of the supportive club members, a dark crowd starts drifting into her mind – her stern parents, and her elder sister who left the house to live on her own. In front of Reina who’s sunk deep in her thoughts, a bus rolls in and stops. Reina climbs in to the bus, thinking that it’s her usual commuter bus. Soon, she realizes that something is very unfamiliar.

All You Can Eat BBQ!
Does your country have all-you-can-eat restaurants? In Japan, You can find many different kinds of all-you-can-eat deals, like, Japanese-style BBQ. You would typically pay 3,000 Japanese yen and order anything on the menu for 90 minutes.
Reina brings the club members to one of those all-you-can-eat BBQ fares at a restaurant. It’s impossible to tell why she can eat so much, maybe because of the Phantom combat ability, or just simply because she’s a big eater. In one scene one of the restaurant staff rolls his eyes at Reina, which is hilarious.
Bunny-eared Reina (and Haruhiko as bonus)
In summary, Reina-chan wears bunny ears and a PJ and speaks in Kansai region dialect (!) She teases Haruhiko.
“Hey… It’s been a while. Wanna sleep together?”
(Hayami-san you rock!)
Kansai region dialect, Kansaiben in Japanese, instantly adds a charm and cadence to any speech.
If you are eyeing on a Japanese person who speaks in standard Japanese, why don’t you give it a try to learn Kansaiben?
*Although… I don’t guarantee the positive outcome.
Haruhiko botches the bus sketch. Ruru comes in and uses all her might to punish him, she’s too adorable
I expected Mai-senpai to go to rock the action scene again, but, for Ruru’s sake Mai-senpai gets her bunny ears!
It turns out that the Phantom reflects Reina’s secret desire.
Just like her, everyone faces oneself at some point of growing up. Reina’s action gives me a bit of emotional moment.
The episode illustrates Reina’s development phase and ends in a warm fuzzy tone.
Up until the last episode, the show’s focus has been action scenes and erotic shots. The new episode adds a different perspective, and a very entertaining one!
