It’s been quite the journey going through Shinmai Maou no Testament, with its highs (cake in the shower and coming nine times) and its lows (absurd censorship and moments where they try to have a plot. But after this episode, it’s finally over!! (until season 2 airs this fall.)
Kelloggs: Hearing Sugita talk makes me look forward to having Kyon back next season.
CriticalMiss: But the character designs look different.
Kelloggs: But you care about the voices, and that’s gonna be the same.
CriticalMiss: When I was looking for this episode on Nyaa, I found that some bluray episodes were out.
PumpkinMochi: I hope they add new content.
CriticalMiss: I’m gonna be busy playing Bishoujo Mangekyou though.
Kelloggs: No! You fricking pornlord!
CriticalMiss: But I already downloaded it.
Boundless: I still can’t get over her tail.
Kelloggs: I still can’t get over her name. I wish she was involved with the shower scenes so that I could have make a zestfully clean joke.
PumpkinMochi: I’m sure that’ll be in season 2.
Kelloggs: I’m calling dibs on that joke then.
Kelloggs: How nice of the monster to have stairs in its digestive system for them. Or not.
Boundless: This place kind of reminds me of Binding of Isaac.
Kelloggs: I haven’t played that. My only point of reference to this is to the Jabu-Jabu in Ocarina of Time.
Kelloggs: I’m doing this for Basara not for you!
Kelloggs: If this is Yuki’s plan to win the Basara, like… Mio’s getting the princess carry, so I don’t know she’s doing with her sword bullshit.
Boundless: The music here reminds me of the music in Log Horizon.
Kelloggs: They’re basically the same show. They’re about being trapped in a fictional world, whether it’s an online game or a series of malls.
Kelloggs: It’s time for sexy Doom!
PumpkinMochi: No time to explain! Classic IMS.
Kelloggs: Epic fight animation right here, I tell you what.
Boundless: Well then. I can see the clothing damage coming from a mile away.
Kelloggs: We have acid that melts things and tentacles. This can only end in tears.
Kelloggs: Wasn’t this a plotline in Sword Art Online or Log Horizon or something like that?
Boundless: It does sound familiar.
Kelloggs: “I was a prototype for something in this world and then, I just wandered alone. But I had feelings.”
Kelloggs: Fuck you, mountain!
PumpkinMochi: Goddamnit, that mountain had one more day till retirement.
PumpkinMochi: She’s still alive!
Kelloggs: There’s still hope for a shower scene with her in season 2!
CriticalMiss: Wait, what happened?
PumpkinMochi: Her connection to the old pervert guy was lost.
Kelloggs: So you’re saying she needs a new master?
PumpkinMochi: I wonder who that could be?
Kelloggs: Is there anyone around that’s been forming master-servant contracts?
PumpkinMochi: If it was that easy, she could have jumped out of the way herself!
Kelloggs: Well, don’t you see that her connection to the monster also meant that the monster could have read her thoughts and if it knew she was gonna jump, it could have redirected the tentacles. Therefore, it had to be a surprise. It makes perfect sense, you guys.
PumpkinMochi: But if it could read her thoughts, then it would have known she was a distraction. Oh never mind.
CriticalMiss: Why doesn’t he just kill him already?
PumpkinMochi: This just got torture-y.
PumpkinMochi: Now back to what’s really important.
Kelloggs: Oh right, this was a family story, I forgot.
Kelloggs: Bandages aren’t supposed to do that. That’s littering. This show isn’t environmentally conscious.
CriticalMiss: You’re gonna form a contract with me.
PumpkinMochi: She’s like “shit, more competition.”
Kelloggs: Oh, I bet he’s got some hot milk for her if you know what I mean.
Kelloggs: This ending sequence is far too cute. I’m not sure I can handle this.
PumpkinMochi: So if anyone other than Basara tries anything with Mio, they’ll die.
Kelloggs: Oh no no. It’s only if they try anything before he does. So therefore, he could nip this in the bud by doing it first.
Boundless: Yep. YEP YEP.
Kelloggs: It’s done!
PumpkinMochi: He didn’t waste any time there.
PumpkinMochi: THE WHOLE SCREEN.
CriticalMiss: I’m gonna watch blurays of the first two episodes after this now.
Kelloggs: Wait, isn’t that just them kissing? Is that too lewd for TV?
PumpkinMochi: Sorry, I can’t control my biological instincts.
Kelloggs: Fuck. This. Show.
PumpkinMochi: Here we go. Round 2!
Kelloggs: See, they won’t let you see kissing. It’s too lewd.
PumpkinMochi: Now the whole gang’s here. Wait, where’s Maria?
PumpkinMochi: Oh no, is she leaving?
CriticalMiss: Are you sure she’s the right person to ask for help?
PumpkinMochi: “Sigh… I’ll go bring the 4K camera.”
PumpkinMochi: They didn’t censor that kiss. Oh, spoke too soon.
PumpkinMochi: Guess they’re gonna leave now.
CriticalMiss: So she’s not coming back for the shower in the second season?
Kelloggs: She better come back. That’s a really good joke, you guys.
CriticalMiss: Wait. who are the two other girls?
PumpkinMochi: They’re escorts?
Kelloggs: Future harem members.
Kelloggs: Not gonna lie, that last seven or eight minutes is actually pretty decent. The random harem stuff was funny, and Mio was pretty cute. I also liked the Zest stuff, the whole archetype of “I had a troubled life before, and now I need to learn how to live normally.” The whole “I’ll do whatever you say, master” is bleh, but I like the concept of the character.
Boundless: Time for season 2 tease.
Kelloggs: The guy on the right looks like the guy from Yozakura Quartet.
Boundless: Yeah, I was gonna say that too.
Boundless: Oh shit!
CriticalMiss: So his dad is actually doing something.
Kelloggs: He smokes, so he’s obviously being evil.
Everyone: WOAH, WHAT WAS THAT
PumpkinMochi: That’s quite the preview.
Kelloggs: That’s a thing.
PumpkinMochi: When they were spelling it out, I thought it was gonna be BUTTS.
Kelloggs: I would prefer The Testament of Sister New Devil Butts over Burst.
