For the eyecatch, they always say "Clara" and "Tequila". Is Tequila supposed to be another jellyfish, or is it just some random word?

I actually came here wondering the same thing and looking for an answer. lol

I didn't finish watching the anime yet, so maybe I'm missing something.

Count me as another person who wondered why they said "Tequila!" I thought maybe it was just supposed to be funny.

If only we could do a Q&A with the producers or Brains Base... for now, I'll just constantly chuckle and wonder why "Tequila!" of all words to pick for a rhyme. XD

Funny thing is, I didn't get it at all and so I showed it to my mom, and between her and my dad they remembered XD It's a reference to a song from the 70's, which was mostly instrumental but contained one single lyric repeated throughout: "tequila." I guess the style was similar enough to the miniature music bit in that eyecatch to make the reference clear to everybody old enough to get it.

I didn't catch the possible reference (though I know the song), but for reasons unknown it cracks me up big time. I don't know if it's the fact that it sounds a bit like 'tequira' or that the voice is so...GAR. Or something. I DON'T KNOW. But I laugh every time.

I could indeed be from that song.
It didn't come to mind when watching the anime, but when you said it could be from a song I knew immediatly which one you ment. ^^

I also thought that it was random! Perhaps it was for the rhyme, but as mentioned, it's also possible it could be from that song! It is so catchy! Every single time I'd also say "Clara" then "Tequila"!

I've seen one episode with a different sub (can't remember which one tho, otherwise I'd look it up) which always used "Kirara" instead of "Clara" which is (i think) a pun of "kurage" (meaning jellyfish) and "Clara" as a nickname for - well - Clara.
And if I recall correctly, that sub also used a different word instead of "Tequila". Sheeesh, I've got to look it up, "Clara" and "Tequila" just feel so wrong in a japanese show imho
