Though we did record something for the second episode, it was kind of boring and I didn’t feel up to making a post about it. Fortunately, this week’s episode of DanMachi was more fun and featured more of best girl Loki.
Shinzen: Woah, what the heck. That looks so weird without the ground for context.
Boundless: Yeah, I thought they were going upstairs somehow.
Shinzen: I thought they were just flying up.
Kelloggs: Somebody put a flyaway cheat on. Wait, crap. I have to remind myself this isn’t a game.
Shinzen: Oh yeah, you’re right. It’s not a game.
Kelloggs: I know, it’s so confusing.
PumpkinMochi: If only there was some god that had no standards.
Kelloggs: Wow. Motherfu… that’s the rudest thing you ever said.
Boundless: He has to find a god that actually has benevolence unlike Loki. Look at her, framed in light.
Kelloggs: See, how can you hate her? Now he’s in the light too.
Kelloggs: “So I’m gonna die first.” I always hate that technique of like, I don’t want to lose anyone close to me so I’m gonna go into a hopeless battle and probably die and then you’re gonna have to deal with not having me.
PumpkinMochi: Not my problem anymore!
Kelloggs: It’s always played as a “gotta protect my family” selfless thing butit tends to come off as pretty selfish.
Boundless: Well, they usually counter it with exactly that, the love interest saying “I don’t want you to die either, that’s you being selfish.”
Kelloggs: Sometimes they do that, but I wish they wouldn’t say that in the first place.
ParticularlyPeeved: This opening should be replaced with Shiny Teeth and Me.
PumpkinMochi: Oh my god, that gnome. Every time, it’s like-
Kelloggs: There’s a gnome? I’m too busy looking at the Hayamin character.
Kelloggs: Not gonna lie, I’m looking forward to backpack girl and what her deal is. What’s in the bag?
ParticularlyPeeved: They seem pretty happy.
Boundless: They looked really happy.
Kelloggs: What does having one’s soul sucked out look like?
Boundless: This makes me worried that it’s a succubus that escaped.
ParticularlyPeeved: Needs more succubuses. Succubi? Whatever.
ParticularlyPeeved: Wait, this is supposed to be- really? Let me see him again.
ParticularlyPeeved: AHAHAHAHAHA. Okay then.
Kelloggs: Were you watching with us last week, I can’t remember.
ParticularlyPeeved: I don’t remember seeing him.
Kelloggs: Because when they mentioned him as Ganesha, I was like, that’s probably really offensive but I’m not sure.
ParticularlyPeeved: So he is the elephant god, which is correct. But his entire head is supposed to be an elephant head. I guess a mask is good enough.
PumpkinMochi: Oh hey. Yeah! Look, they’re on a date, Kelloggs! If you don’t support Loki, you don’t support yuri.
Kelloggs: Sighhhhhhhh… why do you gotta do this to me?
PumpkinMochi: You did it to yourself by picking a shitty god.
Shinzen: Why was this monkey attacking him again? I don’t remember.
ParticularlyPeeved: It was chasing after Hestia, and then I think it just started chasing him instead.
Kelloggs: This is the part where she shows up to save him, right?
PumpkinMochi: Oh, is it gonna be blond girl again, saving his ass.
ParticularlyPeeved: No, she’s coming.
Boundless: I feel like it might be Hestia this time with the dagger instead.
Kelloggs: Yeah, remember when he said, “I wondered if she escaped.” She’s gonna come back and save him now.
Boundless: Oh, never mind.
Kelloggs: Wait, no it’s not. What the fuck? I don’t even know what’s going on in this show!
Kelloggs: Fricking Loki! “I just want to touch your ass!”
Kelloggs: There she is!
Shinzen: Are those cowbells on her hair?
PumpkinMochi: And then they swapped bodies?
Kelloggs: Wait, woah woah woah woah woah. It looked like the door broke before they reached it.
PumpkinMochi: Yeah, was there a frame missing there?
Kelloggs: Yeah, they were still three steps up when the door shattered and revealed them. I could see how they did the stunts there. Their breakaway door went off too soon.
ParticularlyPeeved: They had automatic sensors to cause the door to blow apart when you’re a certain distance away.
Kelloggs: They need to fire their effects team.
ParticularlyPeeved: But it was designed that way.
PumpkinMochi: Oh my god…
ParticularlyPeeved: Are they gonna wallclimb? Wait, it’s a door!?
Kelloggs: I think he’s played this game before, he knows where all the secret passages are.
PumpkinMochi: He’s gonna level up right now.
Kelloggs: When he levels up, he’ll end up with full health and mana. But this isn’t a game.
CriticalMiss: Just give him the sword! Ten minutes have passed in the episode already.
Shinzen: This part of the town is surprisingly deserted.
PumpkinMochi: They’re all hiding from the monkey.
ParticularlyPeeved: But it’s not over 9000.
Shinzen: No, you gotta wait until the last episode for that. I’m sure they’ll make that joke eventually.
ParticularlyPeeved: And his hair will stand up then.
Shinzen: Wonder how that works. Do you have experience points gathered up and then you have to apply them?
Kelloggs: I still can’t comprehend how this is not a game.
Boundless: So it’s a heirloom weapon.
Kelloggs: Yeah, I was about to say, it’s a heirloom weapon.
ParticularlyPeeved: Believe in yourself, yes!
Kelloggs: This show is basically Baby Steps, is what we’re saying.
CriticalMiss: Wait, did he just unlock the-
PumpkinMochi: Yeah, he just cut off the chains after cutting off the mouthguard thing.
ParticularlyPeeved: He’s basically stripping the gorilla. It’s gonna get embarrassed and start blushing in a bit.
Kelloggs: Kyaa~! Senpai saw my face!
Kelloggs: I just gave you that knife! And you’re just leaving it? Dude! Oh, that’s all it took? I guess its HP was almost at zero so one more hit was all it took. Except this isn’t a fucking game!
PumpkinMochi: Oh, that’s where all the people were!
Shinzen: Wait, so has she always had those cowbell things on her hair?
Shinzen: I never noticed them until this episode.
Boundless: Well, her face is up here. The boobstring can distract you though.
ParticularlyPeeved: He should get his knife back.
PumpkinMochi: Oh yay, she died.
Kelloggs: Wow. Woooooow.
Shinzen: You know, this way, he can now- The love interest is gone, so it supports your non-harem end, Kelloggs. Hestia can live forever in Bell’s heart, and Bell can pursue the blond-haired girl.
Kelloggs: Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhh… no thank you.
ParticularlyPeeved: What is wrong with you?
ParticularlyPeeved: Okay good, at least he got it back.
PumpkinMochi: Oh hey, it’s bag girl. Wait, did he just punch her in the head? He seems like a dick.
Kelloggs: What’s in the bag?
CriticalMiss: That’s just like the bag of, umm what’s her name.
Kelloggs: Hachikuji? I think I said that last week like, oh look it’s someone who stole Hachikuji’s bag.
ParticularlyPeeved: Did she smile in a weird way?
Boundless: I thought so too. She’s like, “Alright, I’ll party with you, you kill all the mobs. Then I’ll kill you and take all the loot.”
Kelloggs: How do you think her bag got so full?
Boundless: Chibi Loki looks kind of funny.
Kelloggs: This looks like Dark Legacy Comics.
Boundless: It does.
ParticularlyPeeved: Woo, butts!
PumpkinMochi: I knew it! She’s whoring herself out to pay for the dagger.
Kelloggs: What are you talking about, this is noble work that she’s doing.
CriticalMiss: This is pretty nice.
Boundless: Well, this was more entertaining than last week.
