Ookami-san – Episode 8

Warning: this episode was filler and absolutely devoid of any material. Actually, it wasn’t there some excellent moments in there, those being the cameos of Saten, Uiharu, Misaka and Shirai and of course the ending.

Do not tease others who are not well endowed.

A Quick Summary

This episode goes like this: boss the tells the bank members that they have a job – to find a bride for a 12 year old kid whose family tradition is to be married on their twelfth birthday. Ryoko, Ringo and Ryoshi go out with the kid and his butler to find the wife of his dreams, basically inspecting every single female member we have seen in the show thus far. They even poke some fun at Ringo and Ryoko.

Near the end of the episode, things turn around. The butler notices that the boy’s childhood girl friend has been following him around all day. He tells his young charge that there is one type of wife that money and power cannot buy: the childhood friend! And of course, she runs up to him and confesses her love to him just like that, ending the search.

Ookami wants to eat the filler

This has happened a lot recently. I remember blogging about it too. That said, this one actually led somewhere that gave out bonus fan service.

Ringo's fantasy - Ookami and the 3 pigs

This time the joke fell on the three pigs. They were fat guys basically, all with serious issues ranging from playing twister to using messed up sentences. In the end, it was shown that Ringo made the movie because she has some seriously messed up fantasies.


When the big busted lady came out, they were shocked at how caviler the butler was with her. She protested but quickly dropped out of the game when the realization of gravity literally brought her down.

I agree, she looks very wife-like, for some reason.

I don’t know why, but I agree with Shirai-narrator. She looks like she could be a housewife, easily. Maybe it’s the hair?

It was odd that the butler had the cast go around like a bunch of crazies and then suddenly pulled the boy’s childhood friend out of a hat. It was amazing how quickly the problem resolved itself. Maybe it was to show the boy that there is more to love than buy it? I don’t know. But this is filler, so there is no surprise that it can be messed up.

And now, the best part.

Uiharu - Couldn't capture the others.

I don’t know if the same company that make Railgun makes Ookami-san, but if they do, they need to make this joke a bit more often. They did it with Lucky Star, so why not here? I also saw Taiga I think, but I don’t know for sure.


I got bored writing this halfway through. Really, inexcusably bored. So I’m not going to say anything else. There’s no reason to comment on filler.


Ookami-san – Episode 7

This week’s episode of Ookami-san was great. It added more background to Ryoko and to her arch nemesis. There was of course some eye candy too, one might say – Ryoko wasn’t wearing that senseless outfit of normal.

Ryoko calls this her regular outfit - Ryoshi would love that to be true

A Quick Summary

Ryoshi runs to the meeting spot of an arranged double date – in the form of a ‘job’. Ringo previously set this up by way of a student desiring to repay whoever was cleaning his house and cooking for him, so she arranged this dating ‘game’ as a repayment. Ryoko has an ear piece which allows Ryoko and Ringo to chat while Ringo hides about the area, even while Ryoko looks for her. Eventually, the date starts and Ringo wants Ryoko to hold Ryoshi’s hand to perk up the dating atmosphere. The couples head to the local park where Ryoko hears a cat, but walks on to the picnic area. While setting up, Ryoko dashes off and Ryoshi follows. She’s trying to get the kitten down from the tree, and while she is leaning on the branch, it snaps and she falls into a shallow lake causing her to have amnesia of who she and Ryoshi are. Ryoshi explains to her while eating lunch, also offering to take her to the hospital. They get caught in the rain while the amnesia laden Ryoko 13-year-old Ryoko is exploring an unknown town causing Ryoshi to have Ringo meet them at a local restaurant. While explaining the situation to Ringo, Ryoko tries to get Ryoshi to accept some parfait, but is unable to hear her through his concern of her well being. She runs off and meets the white/blue hair guy from her past and is shocked too much to react. Ryoshi mets up with her and they have a little talk and even going so far as to snap magically Ryoshi’s slingshot. Ringo joins them and all is well soon as she goes to the hospital. Ryoko refuses to admit she remembers what happened while she was out of her mind, but she does in fact remember.

Imagine that it was a flip book

'My... what big hands you have...'
They all oogled at that video - what did she just do?
The pillow got more action than Ryoshi
'If you don't wake up, I'll use mouth-to-mouth, Ryoko!'
'My... what big eyes you have...'
Yin and Yang

This one deserves some compliments though. It wasn’t obvious at first, but in this sense, it’s easy. Look at the white/blue hair guy’s cloths. Black shirt with white pants. And then look at Ryoshi’s white shirt and black pants. It’s a contrast – specifically the contrast of Ryoko’s personality right now and as a 13-year-old. Or it’s a contrast between white/blue hair guy’s evil heart and Ryoshi’s true love for Ryoko.

Ryoshi forgot to take a picture yesterday with his phone - this will have to do


This episode made things from Ryoko’s past make a bit more sense. She was always shy, even with her friends. She was a naieve and young girl at heart, even going so far as to wear lightly colored and frilly cloths. That’s a pretty good indication of why Mr. Evil White Hair totally did something to her. Ryoshi in this episode was also fun, he was serious most of the time, but he had his moments of weakness when Ryoko’s beauty overwhelmed him. Ringo of course had a field day with all of the dating going on and of course her love of in house spy cameras.

So, in conclusion, this was an excellent episode.


Ookami-san – Episode 6

On a different system this time, let’s see how that makes this post turn out.

Geoffry Peterson's 'Now that's proper suction'

We start out with Ringo needlessly vacuuming a wood floor, and with Ryoko leaving to go to the gym. In this episode, there is much needed back-story. Let’s start out with that.

Ryoshi is depressed, it seems because he is sitting on a hill, near a bridge. He was wondering about the guy from the last episode, the one with the crazy Shiki spiky white hair. He’s concerned about what past Ryoko and the white-haired guy have together, and decides to ask Ringo about it at a nearby restaurant.

If Ryoko didn't know better, she'd think something was fishy...

Ringo explains to Ryoshi, “You’re not ready yet, because she’s not ready to tell you yet.” He needs to allow Ryoko to tell him her past, because it was so truamatic for her, although it didn’t take Ringo nearly as long to earn that incredible trust. Of course Ryoko likes cute things so it was easy to adapt to Ringo.

Ringo returns home, well, to her dorm room. She’s recollecting the memories of middle school when she first met Ryoko by looking at a scrap book. Her memories narrate the first confrontation with the deadly wolf – asleep. Ringo walked into to Ryoko’s dorm room and thought no one was there and almost stumbled over a book with less than 200 pages. She noticed that Ryoko was indeed, there, but sleeping. She was in fact so out of it, because of her cold that she was mumbling in her sleep. I’m pretty sure the phrase was, “someone believe me.”

I'll hold your hand if you don't bite

Ringo proceeded to watch over Ryoko until she woke up, becoming obsessed with her mystery, her allure, and most likely, her body. After becoming on friends on a first name basis, Ryoko is followed by Ringo everywhere and all the time. The second part to the memory was when a middle school kid, presumably, was being beaten up by some, presumably, high school kids. She couldn’t let it go, so Ryoko quickly dashed off into a 3-vs-1 battle, when the three were in fact twice her size at least. Ringo saved Ryoko from being beaten too by fake-calling the police.

After this, in a small children’s park, Ringo is washing up her puppy Ryoko. Ryoko doesn’t understand why Ringo is still doing this and Ringo responds with what she overheard Ryoko whisper earlier. Ryoko is shocked that someone else knew those words, and denies it.

The wolf has a puppy now

Ringo stops Ryoko’s denial by telling her that she’s afraid of betrayal and that she won’t ever betray her. Of course, unless it’s to suggest Ryoko is girly, in that case she’ll do it.


Well, I can honestly say that I hate recap posts, summery posts, or whatever you call whatever the stuff above was. I’d much rather give my impressions off. So that won’t happen again.

Moving along – I think this episode was excellent. It told us somethings about Ryoko and Ringo that we didn’t know yet. Things like Ringo is obsessed with Ryoko because they have similar problems. Ryoshi’s screen time made the atmosphere weaker, I think. He didn’t contribute to the overall story, but his view on how Ryoko was open to Ringo was nice to see. Overall, this was good.

Too much typing, too many screenshots.
