I was wondering if she's also a demon, since I thought Devil Chicken was her invention. Lam seemed to be checking if Fino recognized her.

But your explanation works too.

Actually now that I think about it. so does yours. I just thought the focus on watching fino's eyes and the comments about demon's eyes being red (going red when they 'awaken') were meant to go together like chekov's pistol.

I hope there is a good end to this because Fino is my current #1 for leading females for this season though Laura from IS2 is really good too.



I Burst out laughing at that one. Of course another ending is that they marry and bring about true peace with the demon and human worlds.

The plot--or the tentacles in this case--thickens!

I couldn't help noticing that Raul's clothes never disolved... I think the 'junk code' read "...entaiHentaiHentaiHen..."

Lamdimia Do Aximemor is more likely the "bratty girl next door who secretly has a crush on the main male who doesn't see her as anything but a pest" character archetype than anything deeper, the negative reaction to Fino seems more like the stereotypical reaction to a romantic rival than anything more significant, I was surprised she didn't doctor the chicken wings she gave Fino, that would have been in keeping with the stereotypic response to the situation.

While this show does look ever so slightly that it may try to position itself a little outside the harem romance anime formulae, don't forget it's only going a little outside the box, the characters are practically stock from the usual cast that would appear in a high school harem romance.

Note the word I used: "wondering". Since this show is playing with expectations, I wouldn't be surprised if there is a twist that involves Lam. But I agree, what you described is what you find in the typical harem anime. And, it is a very real possibility.

Any one who has watched anime for any amount of time, knows that this story line is ripe for the, through the door walks a surprise that will turn everything upside down. I say in the next two eps.

Would be be acceptable if she spit him out before he dies to foster him health again until she gets hungry again? Combined School Days and Good Ending?

That seems acceptable the whole romantically happy infinite torture ending would be an appropriate middle ground.

I thought of a another parallel.

Again, I'm probably reading too much into it.

After Word War II and to a lessor extent, for about ten year after the end of the cold war... There was a 'peace dividend'

All those soldiers looking for work combined with all the manufacturing that no longer needed to make guns and ammo and tanks...

Consumerism got it's start then. Winchester and Remington started making home appliances. A degree of misogynism arose in entertainment and advertising, pushback as men took their jobs back from 'rosie the riviter'. Advertising expanded dramatically as all these manufacturers desperately tried to build markets for their products. I don't think it's a coincidence that AdMen seem to dominate the professions of the 50's.

I see a parallel, perhaps unintentional, in this show with the rise in consumer products, new unknown manufacturers and a decided effort to find new channels for all the magic that had been invested in the war.

Well, you can't have tentacle fan service in every episode. BTW, good call, deadpanditto, Lamdimia Do Aximemor is indeed a demon, but she seemed a lot more accepting of Fino than I expected. I thought that Lam had a crush on Raul.

I'm still not sure where this series is going, except to the beach at some point. It could be very slice of lifey and just focus on the challenges of the heroes and demons as they adapt to a new reality, or it could introduce some kind of crisis that involves Airi, Raul, and Fino working together. I don't mind either way. Fino is just so damn cute.

Edit: Something else I noticed. Were Lam's eyes supposed to be red or purple. My only worry is for this show is that Fino's powers will awaken and she will either be killed or kill Raul.
