Noticed a lot of references. Good episode all in all. I really like this show.

Haruhi -- endless eight, Kuuko imitating Yuki and the Haruhi school outfit.
Working -- Poplar's hair and her seiyuu too.
Sengoku Basara -- Nyaruko with the 6 swords and Kuuko with Yukimura's spear.
Index -- Hasuta's outfit during the brawl.


Don't forget about "The World God Only Knows" when the four girls says "I can see the ending".

I think this anime is rather ridiculous but I gotta say this episode was pure WIN. I think I got most, if not all, the references it got me LMAO the whole time.

I totally hate Mahiro (such a tsundere boy) but Nyaruko is very amusing XD

That was a really nice episode. I approve of it ^^

I didn't get all the references, but the Haruhi ones were awesome :D
The subtle Shana reference was nice too C:

Is Mahiro turning the corner on his attitude towards Nyaruko? I think this was the first episode that he didn't use a fork on her. Nyaruko at the end was just a win in my book!

It pains me to see people make this mistake, as other people mentioned before Hasuta is dressed like Bridget from the fighting game Guilty Gear, the joke being that bridget is also a trap.

Serious question here...

Who is the more detestable male protagonist?

Shinji from Evangelion or the douchebag from this anime?

Honestly it's a tough call...both are oozing with FAIL!

Shinji, because Mahiro is actually being a man and not be tempted by lust

though his armour is almost gone by this stage it seems....The path to corruption is such a joy to witness.

Absolutely loved this episode! Had lots of funny moments and some development between Nyaruko and Mahiro (too bad she forgot, that was the only scene I didn't like). 5/5.

Ps: It took them long enough to make a Popura joke.

Yes, it appears you're right. I was thinking of Rie's character from Index, not Index herself personally.

the references were all amazing. the haruhi ones especially when kuko attacked him in the classroom and when nyaruko starts to sing "diety only knows" i was going to fall of my chair. this anime has been pretty funny so far but this episode just made it for me.

I really, really like Nyarko and how things are progressing between her and Mahiro, but still, the thought about sad, rejected Kuuko is unbearable! Someone give her some love... Do you care about her?

I believe there's a Street Fighter and King of Fighters reference during the battle: Nyaruko is dressed as Chun-Li and Kuuko dressed as Mai Shiranui.

I loved all those references to other animes in this episode. I don't think that I've spotted all of them, because there were alot of references.
I only got:
Haruhi
TWGOK
Onegai Teacher
Working!
Maria-sama ga Miteru
Bridget from Guilty Gear
Sengoku Basara
Gundam Seed.

I hope someone could post the full list of all references =D

Mouth-to-breast lol Kuuko never disappoints. Mahiro finally realizes his feelings for Nyarko. Well, better late than never I suppose. Looking forward to next episode.

It sucks not knowing almost 80% of the references this episode had.

But it was still 5/5

Endless 8? Maybe I should rewatch that arc.
It isn't that long and its very fun

A wedding registration is probably the most expensive present your ever gonna get!

The ending was pretty nice tho they finally kissed and it seems Nyarko did remember some of it even tho she didn't mention it.
There where also allot of references this episode.

a buncha references. I knew there would be a surprise ending with the classmate girl, or she wouldn't have been included. convenient memory loss? oh well.

ugh I still don't like Hasuta. Nyaruko is kinda growing on me though.

Oh god I laughed so hard during most of the moments. A typical Nyarlko episode concerning the unique humour. Although I was positively surprised by the kiss under the tree and look who else is remembering it, Mahiro. :P 5/5 of course

Anyway, it's easily explainable. Mahiro's sanity points reserve has been completely depleted. Now he's gaining insanity points. Insane alien? tentacle monster? evil god? eldritch abomination? Who cares! she's cute...
That's where I see it stands now as well. I think the moment he realized he was in the dating sim was when his sanity points went from plus to minus.


oh come on!
he took it quite well IMO - after all things that happened before, this is one of more normal
he just have to pick between: 3 creatures that will drive everyone to insanity just by looking at them and 2 of his friends - day like everyday
and in my opinion, this situation might have been created by Nyaruko - somehow it suits her

But he becomes bit more open - and when the wedding night will come, Wagner music shall play and tentacles will be everywhere XD

This is probably the best episode thusfar. I love it when a show turns into total reference-a-minute mode. Parodies like these always make me laugh the hardest, even if I don't always get what they're from.

The Working!! one was obvious, especially because it doubled as a seiyuu reference, so was the Haruhi one. Oh, and the TWGOK one.

I know I've seen the skit with the marriage registration before, but I can't remember where it's from. Can someone shed a light on this?

For anyone who doesn't know much about fighting game.
Here is the list of those girls that were referenced in this episode. You can google it yourself.

Nyanko = Pai Chan from Virtua Fighter
Cthuko = Mai from King of Fighter
Hastur = Bridget from Guilty Gear

Cthuko = kasumi from Dead or Alive
I thought it was Mai Shiranui but then i realized the colors would be inverted. I don't remember seeing Kasumi with those whatever-it-is-underarm-ropes being red either though.
Also i'm dissapoined for lack of Darkstalerks' Morrigan outfit, with this should it would be a perfect fit.

I guess I was too quick to jump the conclusion base on color scheme alone. But with the outfit design(which I just took a carefully look at it) she has a more of Mai's outfit than Kasumi's one.

Here is the reason why I said it was kasumi:
http://deadoralive.wikia.com/wiki/File:Kasumi_22.jpg
That color scheme is one of her famous color scheme.

What you say is true, but I think we all can agree his resolve to resist is crumbling and possibly irreversibly so. I see a future where he'll find himself changing diapers for a dozen babies he can't tell which end to put the diapers on.

But I didn't like the plot in this episode, stuck in a game? sounds to ridiculous.

Looks like next episode their going to switch bodies how banal.
