Gugure!! Kokkuri-San Episode 3 [ how to be a popular tanuki ]
To my pleasure, the episode begins with both Kohina and Kokkuri being shifty eyed and going “shit that inugami guy got some issues” which is pleasing, since we learn he sleeps naked in a room filled with Kohina dolls and pictures…uhm…this guy is not endearing anime he is a creepy pedo??
Kohina resolves to retrain Inugami until he listens to her commands. This of course works only about three days, because Kohina becomes too lazy to walk Inugami which is the only way to make him happy. As Inugami quotes “children always get bored and their mothers end up taking care of their dogs” and this means of course, we have Kokkuri-san walking Inugami. Neither were happy but I laughed my ass off.
A few more tiny skits occur, one of note being Inugami telling Kohina to count inugami’s instead, and going overboard and cloning himself until she is covered. I swear everytime this stinking pervert is on screen I feel gross. He is totally rapey in this episode, but when is he not? My opinion of him isn’t great.
Then Kohina returns to eat cup noodles, and gets WAYYY TOO HEAVY ABOUT NOODLES. Of course Kokkuri wants to get her off of them, but Inugami’s method for getting her to stop eating them is creepy.
We learn a little about Kokkuri however as he recalls a crying Kohina is his reason for sticking by her. I’m sure we’ll learn more about it but one thing is super clear: the only one who genuinely loves Kohina and CARES about her is Kokkuri, whereas Inugami is a crazy sadistic evil spirit. TEAM KOKKURI. Still, his past does tug at my heart strings everytime until he inevitably ruins it with his creeper routine. Which happens here when we learn he is using a book on popularity to get Kohina to like him. HE CAN NEVER JUST BE NICE DAMN.
As usual the episode is very funny and endearing. And of course, it ends with something fun. . . she plays kokkuri-san again only to summon a drunk old tanuki spirit. You’ll learn someday, Kohina. Someday!Hands down though, my favorite part was when Kokkuri called her his daughter..it was a comedy scene, but so heartwarming. PLEASE DO THAT MORE SHOW!
