Spy x family? Community score: 4.7
Not only spy x family Excellent parody, but now it turns out to be pretty cool Hana Yuri Dango Parody as well. Maybe I’m dating myself here, but maybe I’m not the only one who saw a similarity between Tsukoshi’s infamous first encounter with Domyouji and Anya’s confrontation with Damien Desmond? From his looks to his attitude, the miniature Damien’s is basically Doumyoji in this episode, and if he loses a fourth member of his gang, he’s a young man, so there’s time for him to find another friend. It may be similar to Handan The character is in another way too – it’s his first day at school, but his parents haven’t seen them anywhere, which seems a bit strange considering how nervous Lloyd is about being the perfect family for the Eden College interviews and how, in this episode, all the other kids head out with their families . But Damian sits alone in the hall and Lloyd notices that his father is not there for the parents’ meet-and-greet. It’s certainly within the realm of possibilities that Desmond is too important to punish for such transgressions and is too busy to be there, but we can also explain this in a way that isn’t quite good for young Damien: that his father couldn’t. Don’t bother attending for his big day.
This is far from certain, of course, and more important than this episode is the fact that little Lady Anya looks like she’s made her way into his attention (if not her heart) and that we have her first anime appearance for her patented smug face. What makes her face even better is that she thinks she’s smiling at him sweetly and is the biggest person to do so; Not only is it funny to look at but also something that feels totally right for Anya’s age (he kind of told me to “grinn my teeth” in my kindergarten school photo so I blocked them like a trapped prey animal). Anya also shows more well-meaning little kids when she’s walking around the park and grocery store showing everyone how cute she is in her school uniform (which she doesn’t realize. Everyone will be dressed in Eden). It’s also a fun little detail where just moments ago she was afraid of getting kidnapped because of where she’s going at school, although in her defence, she doesn’t understand how a uniform works.
Speaking of kidnapping, when some thug tries to kidnap Anya, Yur must strut her stuff in defense of her daughter. I’m not sure which part was the best: how they insulted her that they didn’t think it was Anya’s mother or how she smashed a gourd with her fist. Either way, there’s a need to develop her character, given that, while great, she’s been taking a bit of a back seat to Lloyd and Anya since she came in. This isn’t really her fault; It’s hard to beat those two things, Anya with Anya Ness and Lloyd vacillating between a “protective pointy dad” and a “professional spy watching his plans fall apart.” Perhaps more than anything else, Yur’s journey with Anya shows how much she is Wants Being an active part of the family, and even if teaching Anya to stand up for herself backfired a bit, there is still a great deal of mother-daughter bonding.
To date, Anya is enrolled in school and has already punched the son of her father’s target in the face. At least Henderson had her look it up in style, and hey, leaving an imprint of her fist on Damien’s face probably wouldn’t be so bad. I worked in Hana Yuri Dangoafter all.
