Assistant Butler Penguin: That guy is thirsty for power, you can see it straight away that he wants to take, not Sebastian’s place as a Head Butler, but Momonga’s as the boss of Nazarick. And what’s the deal with his assistant-helper that looks like some kind of lewd sex slave that carries combs around? Jeez.
Lizard Love Story: Alright, the scene with Shasha and Red Eye Chief Crush Lulu made me laugh so much. The moment Shasha sat down in front of her, he did a mating call? I died. And then instead of telling her: ‘Look I am here so we won’t die’, he chose to say, ‘Marry me.’ And the best thing is that Lulu actually fell for it. Shasha you are such a player. Also, when they were wiggling and hitting their tails on the floor, how cute was that?
Themes & Trivia
Eclair Penguin: His name Eclair or ‘éclair’ means ‘flash of lightning’ in French. The fun thing is that ‘éclair’ is also a French oblong pastry made with choux dough filled with cream and topped with icing. The dough, which is the same as that used for profiterole, is typically piped into an oblong shape with a pastry bag and baked until it is crisp and hollow inside. Yummy and delicious. It is named like that because you can eat it very quickly (in a flash). I don’t know how the name is related to the fabulous penguin. Μaybe he has some sort of lightning powers that we are not yet shown?
Crush Lulu looks quite cute, even in that bush that she is wearing when she has to deal with sunlight. My only issue is that MadHouse made her look overly attractive for a lizard. I don’t even want to imagine of all the lewd-porn related atrocities that will go around the web after this. Poor Lulu. That spider robot-looking maid is very kawai as well.
So, uhm… in this season we are going to be following the lizard arc? For the whole season? If that’s going to be the case I don’t know how well this is going to be received. I mean I don’t mind watching what the lizard people do but it does feel like some filler material. If they can balance it later and involve various plots happening at the same time like they did in the first episode but a bit more settled maybe it’s not going to be that bad.
Even though the episodes so far are not what I expected, I am still enjoying the anime. It is still pleasant to watch and has some good elements to it that keep it interesting. The animation is still very good (look at the movement of Shasha’s lizard Cerberus pet and the water animation) and it has great humor! Last, the ending visuals are stunning! Albedo’s artwork is so beautifully made and the song fits quite nicely as well.
So the lizard people will be fighting Cocytus? Is Momonga and his gang the bad guys this time? Am I missing something from the plot or we are going to learn about it later on? What do you think about the lizard arc story? Love it or hate it? Let me know in the comments! Cheers!
