Well at least this episode shows that Yuko really does care about Momo as a friend.

I mean, why else would she go as far as into her dreams to help her. One more episode left but I expect the finale to have just as much as comedy as the other episodes.

In the manga, Shamiko's mom shows a photo of her and her husband while explaining, I wonder why they didn't include it.

That turned a little dark at the end. I’m assuming we’ll have a happy ending, but all things are possible.

One step to getting closer make (more) food for your enemy. That's a thing! Wow Shamiko, I'd expect no less from you xD

In order to know Momo better, time to indulge in her solemn dreams once more! The "time that hath come" cat transformed into a god to protect Momo, whew. Plus, summoning Lilith in the moment was just comedy gold, demoting her as a spider-like animal that Momo's cat ended up chasing it instead. Such a useless Ancestor HAHA.

So that dream ended up being real, as if talking face-to-face. And Momo plot twists Shamiko into figuring out more about her own parents.

However the moment that got me is when Momo RANDOMLY threw Ancestor Lilith into oblivion, like WTH HAHA!?

That's some insane plot twist if you ask me, about both Momo and Yuko's family history that is intertwined to keep the peace within both demons and magical girls. Ohho so now we understand why Shamiko's mum has to live on the $400/month budget, but sealing their dad in the midst of intentionous role-playing to maintain peace relations, that's some dark shit.

The final episode next week, hopefully we'll see some resolutions to Momo and Yuko in this whole issue of friends and not foes against one another.

Only 1 more week and I will miss this greatly...

I thought, after what the cat said in the dream, that Shamiko was half demon and half magical girl, but it was because of the help Momo's teacher gave her family. And to think that Shamiko's father was close to her all the time and sealed in a simple box. Her mother did invent a great excuse to justify her husband's absence, I don't know if the funniest thing was that or that Shamiko and Ryoko believed her, hahaha 😂. Well, in the end, Momo's farewell was a sad thing. And it is sadder to know that there is only one episode left: c.

unexpected reveals. Momo older sister have helped Shamiko family in the past. Also Yuko's dad is inside a box. Why did he have to be put there?

Funny when Shamiko summoned gosenzo as bait for muscle cat. xD

The darkest plot have been revealed. But still, why I laughed so hard 😂

Hope this will be a Happy Ending show.
Since this anime came from Manga Time Kirara.

We got some pretty interesting clarifications with this episode. And the truth is more "dark" or rather hilarious than expected xD

This series is really offering so much in terms of comedy and has a rather unique plot that it's a shame that it doesn't get more recognition.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

The start of the episode with Shamiko entering the dream and the muscular cat man was funny.

Then suddenly the plot happens and wow that was a lot more serious than I expected!

Can't wait for the next ep.

The dream world was just hilarious lmao
poor mikan, just wants to help xd

Best part was how Momo randomly smashed Lilith away haha xD
Well but those reveals at the end were pretty random too
Don't really know how to feel about them. Was just too sudden and pretty.. far fetched

Also why do I feel like the father just sidestepped with Momo's sister?

Quite the reveal at the end.

This entire episode was hilarious. Shamiko is for sure the character that gave me the most laughs this season. Momo is also great per usual, throwing away the ancestor due to the dream she had was too funny.
These girls are BEYOND precious!

Hold on... that "grill" joke seems to have translated unexpectedly well to English. Is there really a series of phonemes in Japanese that carries the same dual meaning as the word "grill" in English?

In the original, the words “退治” and “対峙” are used.
Both of these are pronounced “TAIJI”, the former meaning “Extermination / knock down” and the latter “Confrontation / Dialogue”. A joke that uses homonyms

I really like this anime but sometimes, the dialogue is just TOO fast. It usually isnt bad but this episode pace with the dialogue was just insane. While I liked what happened, the show didn't take the proper time to let it sink in and just bombarded you with important info.

Really a shame that they didn't just keep the last part of this episode for the last episode. Looking forward to reading the manga if it ever get translated far enough so the pace won't bother me!

Hm... So [Taiji = exterminate / confront] becomes [grill = cook with fire / interrogate]. Momo's next line about "holding people's feet to the fire" fits strangely well with the rest of the joke too. xD

Damn, this family really is unfortunate, but it's funny so I can't bring myself to actually feel bad about it.

Is it intentional that they use the same transformation scenes for shameko or just lazyness as this is like the 2nd time where she wears her PJs but in the transformation she is wearing her school outfit

The manga author knew how to make cute and charming characters and use them to make half decent jokes...but isn't at all skilled in doing anything more with them.
