Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid Episode 2

Spoiler: show

"This is the tiny shopping district. Where we talk to the mochi-making family, trans flower girl, and talking cuckoo bird."
"That white castle-like store over there reminds me of White Castle." *shudder*
Tohru is a natural at being a friendly, decent human being.
If Kobayashi would dress in a more presentable style rather than that drab, oversized sweater, she'd feel a lot better about herself.
HOLY SHIT SHE PUNCHED DAT SUCKER!
I'm not one to make these kind of theories, but what if this entire anime/4koma is just a metaphor for the trials of being in a lesbian relationship? I mean, Tohru's intentions are not subtext anymore. She REALLY does want to live with her, and is freakin attached to her!
Awwww. A second widdle dragon with a fluffy tail.
Aaaa KANNA IS SO CUTE I CAN'T STAND IT! Even when she's mad.
Now it's a household of 3 girls.
"I want to plaaaay." Is she channeling Konata?? :D And why does she have to be charged??
:D Leave it to KyoAni to animate an innocent play-fight EXTREMELY well!! They manage to make it both serious and comical!
"That's not real. Oh. I just crushed your little dreams. Your childhood is now dead. Sorry not sorry."
I want curry.
PROS Of Have A Dragon Maid #1: You never run out of fresh delicious tail meat.
Dragons Day Out.
Oh I suppose Tohru can use perception blocking.
That's sweet. This show is so sweet.
A bubbly ending song!

Episode 2:
This show is pretty alright, though a lot of the characters have something jarring about their design and I find that rather annoying
Spoiler: show
Oh no! A dead pan loli, my only weakness!
As always in anime head pats are OP. Plz nerf.
So this new dragon girl's thing is she acts like a pet/Renge from NNB.
Why does Kanna have such thick legs? It looks weird.
Since she draws her power from it, what would Kanna do if electricity hadn't been invented yet? Dragons existed before electricity, since we keep seeing flashbacks of castles and stuff, so what would she have done? Fly during storms and try to get struck by lightning?
Magic words that get you through conversations xD
Are Kanno's thighs big because she's a dragon and dragons have big hind legs?
Oooh so is the green magic a perception filter?
Yes, it is.
Ok, what the hell is up with that girl in the preview. Did she stuff basket balls into her bra?

It's a pretty funny comedy.
I love the way Kobayashi treat the two dragon maids.

Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid Episode 3

Spoiler: show

… methinks they need a new place to live.
Wow. You can definitely tell Kobayashi is a kind person at heart if she's willing to spend a ton on a new home JUST so two strangers she just met want to live with her.
My god they got the monotony of finding an apartment down PAT. I am in the middle of doing this myself and while it starts off exciting, it quickly becomes tedious and stressful.
"Death to the world"! :D HAHAHAHAHAHA!
Geex. They really ARE a couple!
If she never wanted to wear it again, why did she keep it in the closet? Probably forgot about it.
… That is some classic KyoAni boob animation right there.
I wonder what happened to the yellow scene transitions.
This show is so SWEET.
… you left the stove on while you went out to wash?? -_- And isn't that roof for all the other tenants to use??
Ah THERE they are.
:D HAHA SHE INSTINCTIVELY WALKED TO HER OLD APARTMENT!
"Don't let them see your horns." She proceeds to let them see her horns.
I like these neighbors. My money's on the punk kid playing the noise.
Lady, if you keep getting mad at humans making mistakes, you'll die from an ulcer after 50 years of stress. Human ALWAYS WILL make mistakes, and there's nothing you can do about it.
Wow. Tohru sleeps loudly!
My god Kanna WHY ARE YOU SO CUTE?!!
:D Finally. Dragon butler Daisuko Ono is here!!
… oh haha it's a take on that Aztecian demo-HELLO!! WOW those are some huge knockers!
Wow. Is that video game an original animation KyoAni had to make!?!?
So much dragon history.
Aaaaah haha it's Mario Cart! They even have an OST sound-alike!

This show is Oh-So-Good. I re-watch episodes several times. LOVE the sequence where Tohru nails the purse-snatcher (there's a .gif of it, I stop-start-stop-start it over-and-over to see bits of the work that went into it. Holy Mother-of-Pearl!!). Favorite show of this season, easily.

Episode 3:
Overall a good episode, but I'm not really invested. I think I'll give it another episode before I decide if I'm dropping the show or not
Spoiler: show

Was Kobayashi living in a smaller apartment by choice? The dragons don't work so she doesn't have any more money now than she did before. How can she afford a bigger place?
Ok, Tohru get's bugs in her teeth, that makes sense, but if she transforms without remoing them first doesn't she end up with a handful of bugs in her human-size mouth?
I exist to ask pedantic questions about Japanese animation.
Tohru licking a loli. I love puns.
WHO KEEPS BOOKS ON A SHELF WITH THE BINDER FACING INWARDS? THAT MAKES NO SENSE!
Aww, the dragon washing scene was cute.
The way they represent loudness in this show is really effective. The text makes the frame feel cramped and the noise is offputting.
I get that that Kanna scene is supposed to be cute and all, but didn't Tohru have things to do?
Hah, a dragon hikikomori!
Woah! Looks like they're playing a Souls game! Kobayashi is pretty cool.
Yup, that's a Mimic, and that You Died screen. Definitely a Souls game.
There we go again with the forced drunk-Kobayashi humor again. Definitely the most boring part of the show.

The apartment move seems kind of random and ill-explained for a reason: it's filler that KyoAni wrote. In the manga, they all live in the same place throughout. I suppose it's to further emphasize that they're a family now.

Ep. 4!

Plenty of fun, as always (I'll leave the point-by-point to others). However, I have a worry. This show is starting off very happy. Ep. 3 gives us an observation that Tohru hasn't smiled this much in a long time (neither has Kobayashi-san). The occasional dark cloud rolls through
Spoiler: show
"eliminated" if one is different; afraid of things that are different
but the cast is taking a positive outlook on things.

But. What if KyoAni does a "Chuunibyou" on this show? Remember Chuunibyou? Light, funny, slapstick ... until about half-way through. Then, we get the reason Rikka is so chuuni'
Spoiler: show
her unresolved issues with her father's death
and all the heartache and pain that follows as she has to deal with it.

What if this show does the same thing? The occasional dark cloud becomes an ominous black storm front on the horizon. The people in town start to turn against our happy little (but different) family. The Kobayashi's start getting shunned. Hurt turns to anger, angry acts start a blaze ....

I hope not. Just have to wait and see.

Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid Episode 4

Spoiler: show

Aww poor Kanna. She wants to go to kindergarten and make good fwends. ;_; This is giving me Nichijou vibes all the more.
… really? Dragons have had that thought in their heads??
If Kanna wants a cute one, you give her a cute one! >: No arguments.
*strips* "PUNISH me!! Right here in this store!"
It appears she didn't have a problem with the cost until it came to the backpack.
Oh my god she returned the charm because she DIDN'T WANT KOBAYASHI TO SPEND TOO MUCH! THIS IS PRECIOUS!!! ;______;
"To reduce differences. Everyone is the same." ….. uUUUUuuuuuuh… I don't think that's the right issue to bring up in this time. … at least with how America is doing right now.
Ugh. Sometimes i hate humans and how scared of differences they are.
That looks like the least comfortable way to sleep.
Woah she can already copy that text??
New character! Saikawa Riko.
Rough start, but I think they'll become friends soon.
Haha. "Kobayashi is MY thing. Mine."
Uh oh! What could have caused all this to happen?? A duel?
"You American gorilla!" HOW DARE SHE CALL ME WHAT I AMwait…
… Oh. So that intro to this battle WASN'T an exaggeration. :O
"Oh don't worry. I'll turn this playground back to normal." Oh okay then. :D
