Alright, best girl is back. Yes, by that I mean Ebina.

As for the episode itself, it was fine. Even after the absence I still find myself not really caring about Umaru herself at all, and this new episode did pretty much nothing to rectify that. This is looking to be another mid-tier show with just a few great characters and moments scattered around just like Season 1. Worth watching if you've got the time but probably not something worth making extra time for.

Episode 2

Alex is quite the otaku, and Umaru is totally dense about it as she doesn't realize that he is Sylphyn's big brother. Then Umaru's ears are hurting after Taihei accidentally stepped on the ear pick, and Bomber has a lot of different ones to choose from. Umaru as UMR goes over to Sylphyn's big house in order to study, and Sylphyn is studying hard to beat Umaru not realizing that she's right in front of her. Then Umaru tidies up the place, and it's too clean for Taihei as he's used to the place being so messy all the time. Then they go to the movies where they watch a parody of Detective Conan. Sylphyn wanted to watch the Pretty Cure movie, but instead they agree to watch Detective Nacon, and Ebina's stomach was starting to give in. Luckily it growled during a dramatic scene. Once again, it's hilarious as it goes back to being a collection of short stuff like most episodes are in this series.

Episode 2

The episode starts off with Bomber asking to eat at Taihei place so they invite Alex. Once at Taihei's place Umaru meets Alex and first she's not found of him but that changes once she finds out he's really into anime. After eating hot pot and watching a special on tv Alex leaves and reports to someone about meeting Umaru. Than we have a incident with a ear pick and Taihei accidentally broke it because Umaru left it lying around so after work Bomber and Taihei bring some ear picks they bought. Umaru meets Sylphyn as UMR and gets invited to her place to study. At her place she realizes that all the rumors going around school must have been about Sylphyn and not her. We than have Taihei and Umaru cleaning the apartment as the place has been messy and Umaru actually cleans the place. The apartment stays clean for a week and Taihei tells her she can be a little messy so he can have something to do. The final short is about the girls going to the movies and they end up watching Detective Nacon.

That was legitimately one of the most boring episodes I've seen in a "fun, slice of life" series that I can ever recall.

Much better episode this week, pretty funny. Love the parody title of his cleaning book "I cleaned half of America"( which I think is supposed to be "The life-changing magic of tidying up" which I own and read and does follow the steps Taihei took, though so far I've only managed to clean my sock drawer ) looks like last season's neglected side characters are going to get some attention this year, Alex this week and in next week's preview.

Umaru-chan is such a delight already this season
Only two episodes in, but it already feels superior to first season

I think Dogo Koba has grown into my favorite studio

Just saw that news, I'd be interest if they went that direction, it's either have the ending of the manga be in this season or OVAs (or a rare s3). It's been a while since I've read the manga (mainly because translation were dropped), but I think a decent amount of chapters are going to be cut if they do decide to have this season anime ending be the same as the manga ending.

As for my thoughts on the manga ending in 3 chapters, I'm not too surprised since the Ebina spinoff ended recently as well.

If anyone marries anyone I will be angry. While Umaru seemingly improves over the OVAs and into the second season, Taihei is simply a bad parent, a bore of a brother, and completely hideous. Please no.

I'll never get the Japanese ear pick thing, it must have to do with having dry ear wax or something but just like everyone else you still shouldn't stick anything in your ear, they clean themselves.

Well, it's as trashy, creatively bankrupt and unfunny as I remember it being, so that's something
