Sora No Otoshimono: Forte

October 8, 2011

That thing which fell from the sky, is it still here? Well yes. Tomoki still has it. Whether he wants it or reluctantly has to keep it, that’s a different story. And I believe there’s a fine and thin gray line between that too. After the events that have happened at the end of the first season and the tantalizing teaser at the end of the so called unaired OVA episode, it’s no surprise that Sora No Otoshimono: Forte came out a year after the first season aired.

So what else viewers are really hoping to see in this sequel? The answer to the mysterious Angeloids and “Heavenly” creatures that reside in some floating world right above Sorami City? Well, even if that’s what we would like to see, oh heck, it’s more of Tomoki‘s pervertness, right? Right. Now, that guy’s favourite phrase may contain “peace and quiet is the best” but the way he enjoys peeping (possibly taking voyeurism to a whole new level) may not be so if you’re the unfortunate girl that is being peeped on. Plus, with a bunch of wacko characters that include his childhood friend who secretly has a crush on him, Sohara (still hasn’t lose her touch on her murderous chop. Why not? She’s been doing it so frequent on Tomoki), the ‘scientist’ infatuated with the New World, Eishirou, the massacre-loving student council president, Mikako, the emotionless pet Angeloid, Ikaros, and the currently masterless flat-chest Angeloid, Nymph. Yeah, his peace and quiet days are all but long gone.

Episode 1
If you’re ever interested to read up on the back story of this series, go read my previous blog. Or some other sites that offer the same. I’m just jumping straight into the first episode where everything beings and left off at the end of the first season. Tomoki still has that dream about meeting that mysterious angel. This time she is warning him about the coming of an angel. He wakes up to find Ikaros in a very enticing position so you can tell his erection could rival Eifel Tower. However he can’t ‘deflate’ it fast enough because Sohara is coming. He knows he’ll be dead if she ever sees this ‘monument’. So I don’t understand this odd part whereby he orders Ikaros to blast it to bits. Got to be very painful, eh? Don’t know what happened to that as we now see Eishirou still interested in discovering the New World with all sorts of mumbo-jumbo. Are we interested? In school, Tomoki relates yet another dream of that angel to his pals (about an angel being held in the sky and wants him to treat her well). Nymph suggests a Dive Game, a once popular game back in Synapse whereby they dived into human’s dreams. Using a machine (that resembles like a rice cooker), Nymph opens the portal to let the gang go through and see Tomoki’s dream. Since Angeloids can’t dream, Nymph and Ikaros will have to stay back. In the dream world, the scenery seems unfamiliar to Tomoki. Then they start getting chased by prehistoric animals! Actually, this is Eishirou’s dream. Oops. Sorry for the screw up. Going in for the second time, now they enter a decimated war zone. Mikako quickly jumps into action by blasting away all her enemies! She’s slaughtering everybody and enjoying it! Yeah, this is her dream alright. With no one else to kill, she starts targeting her own pals!

After fixing yet another screw up, the next dream seems to be fantasy-like. Turns out to be Sohara’s but she couldn’t admit it because there are lots of Tomokis outraging the many happy Sohara’s modesty! She covers this up by beating up Tomoki and accusing him of having such weird dreams about her. Now she’s going on a crazy beating-Tomoki spree. So much so that poor kid has flashbacks about his dying grandpa who departed ‘great words of wisdom’ before he dies. That is, to dream big. Grandpa too had a big dream: To get intimate with all the women in the world. Only 2.9 million more to go! WTF?! So finally they enter another world. This time on a floating vessel. Eishirou notices evergreen trees withering here whereas they are supposed to stay green all year long. In the middle, there is a big monument. Though they can’t read it, Sohara feels sickly. When they get back, Tomoki and Nymph get into an argument because the latter insists that the latest dream was his but the former claims his dream is in a field. Later Eishirou is at the giant sakura tree, the place where pillars first fell out from the sky. He seems to have brought back an acorn from Tomoki’s dream but the odd thing was Nymph told them bringing back things from the dream world is impossible because that item will disappear but this acorn did not. Remember that busty Angeloid at the end of the OVA? Yeah, she makes her sudden appearance. Crashing right in front of Eishirou, she claims she needs to kill Tomoki.

Episode 2
Eishirou rushes back to Tomoki’s place to warn he is being targeted but as being told by the girls, he has gone to the mountains. Seems he can’t control his lust whenever Ikaros and Nymph are close by so he decides to purify himself by becoming a monk. Can he? Ikaros does a wide range scan and her results indicate that this type Delta Angeloid is Astrea. Speaking of which, she crashes right at Tomoki’s feet. However Nymph didn’t seem alarm so the Angeloid duo go back to their normal chores. As explained, though Delta type Angeloids are excellent in close combat, they have low processing capabilities. In other words, they are idiots! And yeah, Astrea trips before she could launch a strike. The chief monk sends Tomoki to various training to overcome his worldly desires so we see Astrea’s stupidity by tagging along. She plans on killing him but each time she flops big time so much so you’d think a kindergarten kid could have done a better job. And each time, ending up in inviting fanservice poses that erects Tomoki’s ‘little buddy’. Sohara, Ikaros and Nymph decide to pay him a visit at the temple. Tomoki is seen doing to ultimate purity: Burying his porn mags. He thinks it won’t be a bad idea flipping through one last time but was caught red-handed by Nymph, who beats him up. Nymph decides to show her mature side by using some time machine to bust up her boobs. No change even if Tomoki is an old guy. Always will be flat, eh? With Nymph running of in tears, Ikaros goes to check on him. Getting caught off-guard again reading porn mags, he tries to cover up by saying these are dangerous stuff. Ikaros interprets this as a sign to destroy all stuff that threatens her master’s safety. She burns all the magazines away! Goodbye pin-up girls.

Later at the giant sakura tree, Eishirou asks Ikaros to analyze the acorn he took with a newly planted one. Her results that they are completely the same so Eishirou thinks that the answer to it all lies within the New World. Tomoki is burying and saying goodbye to his magazines. Astrea spots him and tries to seduce him by becoming a porn mag. However he gets turned off by her soft porn. To get his attention, Astrea gets bolder as she takes off a piece of her clothes each time he turns the pages. Just one more page and she’ll be completely naked but in Astrea’s embarrassment, the page is stuck together so Tomoki desperately needs something to cut it open. Too bad Sohara was standing behind him. He’s dead this time. Tomoki continues to live the secluded life. Astrea continues her mission to kill him via poison. However she flops when she sees him eating (she’s always hungry by the way). Due to the compromising position they ended up in, Astrea receives horrifying visions about the 6 Domains of karma in Buddhism. Only this time, everything is perverted. Enough to scare that idiot away. Tomoki gives up and returns him. His despair turns into happiness when he sees a parade of porn mags! Seems it is Ikaros’ doing and she doesn’t mind what it is as long as her master is happy. Yeah, they even go on a night festival parade. As for Astrea, she crash lands near Eishirou’s tent. While her self-repair starts, Eishirou hears her reconfirming her mission. There’s also a little history lesson whereby 11 years ago the dream of a Downer (Synapse’s term for humans) connected Synapse though the council didn’t find it a threat. But a few days ago, several Downers were detected to have entered the Synapse Core which contains Rules. Though no Rules were changed, the council deemed this a dangerous event and ordered the quick termination of Tomoki, which is Astrea’s mission.

Episode 3
Astrea realizes she has spoken too much and starts panicking when Eishirou interrogates her for more. She tries to kill him but as expected bungles her way through. She is tied up by Mikako and threatened but is willing to help Astrea to learn and fight via traditional style. That night, Tomoki and gang are visiting the summer festival when he spots a familiar person. It’s that Rifle Dude!!! Run for your life, Tomoki! Run!!! Too late, he got caught. And yeah, Mikako hatches another plot to do another tournament for this year. Last year was that gunfight (remember that royale battle?), but this year it will be sumo wrestling. Erm… Why does it seem like masked wrestling? The prize? Ten million Yen and a ticket to her family bath house filled with geishas. You bet Tomoki is going to enter this one. Yeah, with panties on his head as his mask called Mask Dupants. Damn pervert. The enemy of all women! He wins each round because he fondled his female opponent’s boobs. Damn pervert! Not only Tomoki’s doing well, but Mikako too. You should see her iron fist grip over Eishirou’s face. No contest. The next match turns into a tag team match with Tomoki-Ikaros against Nymph-Astrea. Ikaros and Astrea got disqualified for using their dangerous weapons while Nymph runs away after Tomoki couldn’t get turned on over those flat chests. Yeah, a walkover. The least favourite one advanced to the finals. He will be facing Mikako in a caged battle. Why is Tomoki’s crotch bulging so big?! Does he have something forbidden hidden beneath it? Turns out to be sesame oil so this proves handy as he is able to slip away from Mikako’s iron grip. Tomoki turns on the tables on Mikako and will this be the first she will get outraged by Tomoki? Sohara who has been the referee in all the matches couldn’t stand it anymore and dives in as a masked wrestler to break all of Tomoki’s bones. In an unconscious mode, Tomoki stood up with his fist punching the air. It’s a sign that he’s dead but with pride. Yeah, all the guys are crying for him. You’re all crying for the wrong reasons. Since the identity of the mysterious wrestler was a mystery, and Mikako couldn’t possibly accept it since she was cornered. This means Tomoki gets the prize, right? Erm… How come he has to face Rifle Dude in a match for the title of undisputed champion? Did he hear somewhere wrong that this is supposed to be first prize? Uh oh. We all know how this will turn out, right? Hey, are guns allowed? Well if Tomoki’s molesting is, then why not? Rifle Guy wins without breaking a sweat.

Episode 4
Astrea is living the poor life and thinks about how her master sent her down to kill Tomoki. Even if she’s an idiot, she knows too well she can’t possibly go back without accomplishing her mission. Don’t worry. Mikako is here to help her. It’s a snowy day and Tomoki’s peace and quiet comes crashing down once more with yet another scheme from Mikako. This time a traditional snowball fight between the genders. Mikako will lead the girls while Tomoki reluctantly becomes the shogun for the boys. The game ends when the general of either side is taken out. Plus, the winning team can do what they want to the losing team all day. Yeah, that’s got to be the motivation Tomoki is waiting for. With the girls building their defence, Mikako sends Ikaros and Nymph to search for hotsprings. The guys execute their diversion and surprise tactic as they bury Sohara, the biggest threat underneath piles of snow. Ikaros and Nymph couldn’t locate any hotsprings so Eishirou helps out by giving Mikako a pick and whenever she digs, hot water gushes out. Night falls and the guys interrogate some of the captured girls (doing perverted stuff of course). They receive news of the girls soaking in the hotspring so the perverted shogun goes to take a peep. Then it goes downhill from here. Tomoki receives report that many of the guys have betrayed them and let loose the girls (that’s because many of them have girlfriends). Tomoki and those losers (those without girlfriends) try to stage a final fight back but are confronted with a giant snowman (it’s Sohara!). Hey, she’s buried underneath it the whole day? This Snow-hara goes on an angry rampage, wiping out what is left of Tomoki’s army. Astrea takes this chance to kill Tomoki but the guy asks her if this is what she decided or her master’s? He is disappointed that Angeloids can’t make decisions by themselves. When Ikaros appears, Astrea panics and flees. As Mikako and Eishirou soak in the hotspring (he is keeping his distance because he knows what’s good for him), he explains the reason why he helped her dig a hotspring was because every time she digs for something, she always struck gold. She goes on saying how she wanted to make cabinet ministers bow down to her due to her massive resources and the times they spent making secret bases together. She asks him why doesn’t he go home and his answer is simple: He has no home. Back at his tent, he sees Astrea poorly fishing and ponders about her mission to kill Tomoki. Until that happens she can’t go back. He laments the fact she has wings but can’t go home to the sky. Astrea undergoes training from Mikako and she continues to stay with Eishirou.

Episode 5
The gang pays Eishirou a visit but are shocked to see him beat a bear with his bare fists! Apparently he needs something to feed useless Astrea. He has them help him out via fishing. But Eishirou has more important things to investigate, asking Sohara to tag along, they dive into Tomoki’s dream and end up at Synapse Core. They take a hang-glider down to the world below called Synapse. Sohara sees a strange wheel invention and touches it, accidentally causing it to fall off Synapse and to the real world below, nearly killing Tomoki. Eishirou and Sohara venture through the town with no souls in sight. Then they see several angel clones coming out of the homes heading somewhere. Upon touching the door of a large dome, they are being transported to several scenes on Earth. Coming back inside the dome, Eishirou thinks this dome is the real world and humanity must’ve been watched the whole time. Then he sees several people sleeping in the capsules. However a pair of Harpies caught Sohara. Eishirou seems confident. Based on his calculations, this is about the time he and Sohara will be transported back. He leaves a message by telling the master of this place that he shall return. Eishirou asks Nymph if he is real so she assures him he is. Eventually the gang couldn’t fish anything and end up eating vegetable soup. Better than nothing, right? Astrea tries to resume her mission but gets interrupted when coming contact into a wasp. Back home, Tomoki ponders the use of that wheel invention and hopes it is something perverted (oh no). It starts moving so he gets an idea to make a new Panty Robo Bike out of it. He hangs out with it and doing everything so often that it becomes like his best buddy. Yeah, doing perverted stuff. It’s amazing he doesn’t get arrested. On another killing attempt, Astrea fails again when Panty Robo molests her. I’m not sure about Tomoki’s statement about defeating the enemy and defending the world. They should be the villains! Soon their friendship comes to a crashing halt when Sohara finds out about it. She’s going to give him her murderous chop but Robo Panty blocks and protects him. It tells him to run while Sohara’s chop disintegrates every part of it. Tomoki gives it a decent burial and was being told by Nymph and Eishirou that it fell from the sky from his dreams. Not that he understands what they’re saying anyway. Lastly, we see the Sky Master completing another Angeloid for his own nefarious ends.

Episode 6
Tomoki and co arrive in school to see a shocking scene: Astrea eating rabbit’s food with the bunnies! Seems she’s hungry. That hungry, huh? The rest get an idea for Astrea to attend school. Tomoki knows his protest will be shot down so he better thinks of a way to make it fun. Yeah, he is going to turn himself into a girl to do perverted stuff on Astrea. Oh dear. Not that Tomoko alter-ego again. He’s having fun fondling her huge boobs during a fake physical examination but if Sohara is around… Astrea is too stupid to follow class so Tomoki orders Ikaros to be her personal tutor. Then Tomoki has to sit for remedial lessons due to his bad grades along with Sohara, Astrea, Nymph (she’s just doing it because she’s bored) and Mikako (she failed her moral subject. Oh sh*t!), Mikako shows Tomoki that he is the least popular in school. Furthermore, several girls mock him about his stupidity. This gives rise to a challenge as Mikako organizes a quiz to see who is the smartest. With random questions being asked, the first person to hit the buzzer gets to answer. A correct one will move up one slot and the person with 10 correct questions will win a trip to one of Mikako’s luxurious private tropical island, indoor pool park for all year and a photo magazine featuring Mikako as the cover. That last prize… Anyway what if one answers wrongly? I think Mikako purposely demonstrates this feat as it will send the contestant down to a pit of something unwanted. In her case, it was octopuses. Fanservice frenzy! For Sohara it will be pigs, eels for Astrea and a container filled with dung for Tomoki. Mikako flops her morality question to slaughter everyone, Sohara mispronounces her English question, Astrea is just too dumb for anything while Tomoki fails another morality test (to peep at girls in locker room). He is already the most hated person among the girls but the guys are supporting him. Nymph is the only one who answers all correctly and is a step away from clinching the title. However the next series of questions are about girls’ size measurement so Tomoki perfectly answers them all! Not only that, he could tell the exact place of what they did and the colour of their panties!!! Somebody hang this perverted stalker! The girls are outraged but he is the same level with Nymph.

The next question decides it all when it is the same question about peeping girls in the locker room. Tomoki has learnt from his mistake and is to answer correctly when he sees visions of angels showing him the ‘true path’. All the guys realize he couldn’t answer because he’s fighting with his inner manliness (WTF?!). They plead to him to just lie for the sake of the quiz but Tomoki would rather die than be a good kid. He repeats his mistake and is sent tumbling down into the manure. Nymph wins the contest and all the guys rejoice. Yeah, maybe she’s not so bad after all. A few days later, Astrea comes crawling to Tomoki’s home and they start challenging each other to a few series of games to see who is the smartest. They’re neck to neck with each other, though you’d wonder how this will prove that they’re smarter. In the end, Tomoki is fine with losing so everyone holds a BBQ part at his place to celebrate the biggest idiot in Sorami. Astrea is taken in by their hospitality so Tomoki tells her to feel free to come eat with them anytime. It doesn’t take long before they start arguing again. Back in Synapse, the angel in Tomoki’s dream, Daedalus is watching how happy her Angeloids are with Tomoki. But she is interrupted when Sky Master comes looking for her. He knows she was the one who released Uranus Queen (Ikaros) and has been accessing Tomoki’s dream. Though he is here not to fight her, he informs her that his second generation of Angeloids have been completed and their capabilities far surpass her first generation ones. He plans to use them to destroy Ikaros and Nymph.

Episode 7
Daedalus tries to warn Tomoki about the second generation Angeloid in his dream but was abruptly cut off. Tomoki sees this new Angeloid, a loli in a nun outfit, Chaos, excitingly beating up Ikaros badly and she thinks it’s all fun and games. Astrea continues to be an idiot and the more hungry she is, the more idiotic. Yeah, she’s eating Eishirou’s fish bait. This is so sad. If that’s not enough, she tried sneaking into Tomoki’s fridge to steal snacks but didn’t find any. Too bad Nymph too wanted to snack. So she gets an idea of eating Ikaros’ watermelons. One or two shouldn’t hurt but what if they eat her entire farm? Now they’re in big sh*t. Remembering the last time she terminated insects that hover near her watermelons, Nymph starts thinking fast to cover up. Oh, Ikaros is already back. Nymph uses some programme to hack and grow the watermelon faster but it turns into a giant monster in which it swallows unsuspecting Tomoki! Now it becomes a perverted melon monster and devours Astrea. Nymph is going to destroy all the evidence and fires her bazooka. When it’s over, Nymph starts accusing Astrea was the culprit! Yeah, Ikaros just unleashes her blast on the entire house. So later Ikaros fixes a meal for them all to eat. Nymph and Astrea leave so the latter teases her for being a shorty without wings but she isn’t amused. Tomoki is sitting alone at the park when Chaos approaches him. She seems to be interested in him and is creeping him out. Nymph ponders about Astrea’s words and her own predicament while assisting Eishirou in his Dive Game. He has been successful in evading those Harpies till now. Nymph is supposed to prepare a portal to transport him back on time but was being whisked away by Tomoki. He takes her to a field and wants to be her master. This brings tears to Nymph’s eyes but he has an order he wants her to carry out first. That is, to self destruct. Say what? Tomoki wants her to teach him to meaning of love as he starts strangling her. Turns out this ‘Tomoki’ is Chaos, second generation Angeloid type Epsilon in disguise. I’m amazed Nymph couldn’t tell apart from his scary face. I mean, his perverted face is scary but this one is outright creepy. So okay, maybe his perverted face is scarier. Nymph is upset that she toyed with her emotions but she has no fighting capabilities to fight back. Chaos mentions she was ordered to take Ikaros’ convertible wing core. But she’s not interested in that so she disguised as Tomoki to learn from her seeing that her master told them they had betrayed Synapse and gone crazy with love. So what is love? She really, really, really wants Nymph to teach her. How can she do so when she’s strangling her? Eishirou is transported into Daedalus’ room as he sees Chaos strangling Nymph via monitor.

Episode 8
Chaos continues to torment Nymph in episode 8 by transforming to her other pals, taunting her before turning into several Tomoki clones and do physical abuse on her. Nymph is under tremendous trauma but is saved when Ikaros appears in time (previously she spotted fake Tomoki with Nymph but saw the real one out with Sohara at a cafe). Ikaros prepares to fire her Artemis cannon but stops when Chaos transforms into Tomoki. Using him as a front, she orders Ikaros to terminate Nymph. Can Angeloids disobey their master? Ikaros walks up to Nymph and throws her away to escape. Chaos is not amused and orders Ikaros to destroy herself. The loud noise is heard throughout town. Sohara wonders if it’s a construction but Tomoki just got up and leave. Nymph needs to go save Ikaros when she bumps into Astrea. She tells her to save Ikaros but the Sky Master orders her to destroy Nymph. She reluctantly obeys but before she could, Tomoki coolly tells Astrea off (he knows where they are due to the explosion seeing that it is impossible for any big time construction in this sleepy town). He wonders if Angeloids really do have to obey their master’s wish and would it be wrong for them to do the stuff they like. He tells Astrea to make her own decisions as he gives Nymph a helping hand while the poor Angeloid cries in his arms. Sky Master orders Astrea to finish off Ikaros since Chaos is just toying with her. Astrea too is having a dilemma with her feelings. Then she realizes that she too likes Tomoki and severs her chains with her master by ripping it off. Astrea faces off with Chaos and her power up is tremendous. As Daedalus explains, due to her powerful combat capabilities, she did not install any processing capabilities because she didn’t need any. Thus, nobody can beat her when it comes to close combat. Chaos learns from her mistake and keeps her distance to pound Astrea. By this time, Ikaros has finished her self-repair and transforms herself into a giant spaceship. Chaos’ iron wings also enlarge and they have an epic sky battle. Ikaros did a sacrificing move that will destroy them both as she sends Chaos plunging deep into the depths of the ocean (Angeloids aren’t programmed to swim). Chaos wants her to explain the meaning of love. Ikaros replies that she doesn’t know but says her reactor (Angeloid’s term for heart) hurts whenever she thinks about her master. It feels like it is breaking apart each time she thinks about it but will protect the master she loves so much. Wow. This is a long time since I saw Ikaros display so much emotion since her emotional restriction was gone in the previous season. Ikaros’ emergency system rescues her to the surface as Astrea picks her up. She asks Astrea if she knows the meaning of love. Not knowing it either, Ikaros feels she is just the same like Chaos and wants to see her master. They come crashing into his house and Tomoki starts reprimanding once more. But he’s glad that they both came back.

Episode 9
Mikako is saying how peaceful it is. At first I was wondering what she meant till her dark aura starts showing! She is upset that with the super battle that has been taking place in the previous episode, she did not have any massacre roles to play! She thinks of taking out her frustration and there is only one guy who can satisfy her. Oh no! Run Tomoki, run!!! It’s the night festival again and that sense of deja vu. Over at Mikako’s stall, it’s that Rifle Dude once more!!! Run Tomoki, Ruuuuuun!!! Too late. Caught. This time Mikako does a yo-yo fishing competition. She does a demonstration by tying a rope to herself then diving down below into the giant pool to scoop up one of the many tied up girls in it. The rule in this team game is simple: The once who catches the bounciest yo-yo wins. You bet Tomoki is in. Yeah, as Tomoko. Pairing up with Eishirou, he happily dives down to grab all the horrified girls he can. He catches Nymph but throws her back and hopes this little fish will grow some more. That feels like an insult. Tomoki is going for Astrea but each time is thwarted by Mikako, whose team is in the lead. Wondering if there are bigger ones than Astrea, they eventually spot it: Sohara. The scene turns into some sort of drama. Tomoki leaving Ikaros to do some big catch in the ocean with a promise he’ll propose to her when he returns. However he never did but never regretted a single thing because it was ‘so big’. In short, Tomoki lost and Mikako wins. In the end, it’s all part of Mikako’s perfect scheme as Tomoki is hang naked upside down outside her window like a dried cuttlefish! Oh sh*t! She’s really satisfied now. Later Ikaros asks Sohara about the meaning of love and she replies it’s the feeling of wanting to be with someone. Then she asks Nymph so based on Tomoki’s character, they start watching his porn videos to have a good idea! Of course he stops them. He feels that since they can shop on their own now, he gives them some cash allowance. Nymph is happy she can buy all the snacks she wants but Ikaros is having a tough time deciding on what to buy for her master. Taking Sohara’s advice to be with him doesn’t cut it because she’s crushing him to the wall. Mikako’s one to take a bath with him only earns her several bumps on the head and Eishirou’s puzzling recommendation has her flying to the store to buy… Watermelons? When she shows Tomoki the watermelon she bought, he is okay with it since it is what she wanted. As Eishirou said, the irony is that Ikaros bought the thing she wanted and not what Tomoki wanted but because of that he is happy. Chaos still pondering about the meaning of love at the bottom of the ocean suddenly understands what it means when she starts feeling pain in her reactor. Thinking back on Ikaros’ words, she slices all the poor fishes and concludes that pain equals love and wants to show it to everyone. Oh dear.

Episode 10
Tomoki is upset that Astrea continues to freeload in his home. Hey, he was the one who said that she could come here anytime, right? Because of the all the bugging, Tomoki makes the toilet his sanctuary. Yeah, it’s like his own personal room. Ikaros has predicted such an outcome and has made a remote control for the bidet. The water pressure becomes great but Tomoki isn’t giving up his throne but eventually gets blasted out through the roof. Next, he makes the closet his safe haven and isn’t going to come out. In view of this, Ikaros has made lots of preparations like food. But since they’re raw and needs to be cook, the whole closet becomes a microwave oven! Oh sh*t! His balls are going to get cooked. Let him out! Let him out! And for bathroom purposes, she also installed a toilet so Tomoki got flushed out. Later Ikaros follows Sohara out to town for errands. They see a magazine about a famous TV couple getting married so Ikaros starts feeling hot about the thought of Tomoki proposing to her. Meanwhile Astrea is learning poker from Mikako. She is going to teach her betting and tests her with a simple maths quiz. The funny part wasn’t Astrea’s answer, but the way she confidently answered it! How much is 1 + 1? Fifty! Oh my. No wonder she drops the subject and has Astrea eat something. I’m not sure of this because Mikako soon leaves when is being told by her subordinate that something has happened. Seems in the background her bodyguards are rushing somewhere like as though they’re going to defend something. Later Tomoki is glad his project that takes half a year to finish is completed. It is his sophisticated peeping tom system that allows him to peep at girls all over town using mirrors! Yeah, and you wonder why there are pipes sticking out of everywhere like sore eyes. He doesn’t need to leave his room to enjoy his voyeurism. Yeah, all that secret digging and cabling sure must have paid off. He is enjoying the fruits of his labour (see those disgusting nose bleeds?) but to his dismay sees Astrea in his room. Oh not to worry. She’s just hungry.

After shooing her away, then it’s Nymph’s turn in his room. She’s disappointed with him (she should’ve seen this coming) and would gladly do a little service if he becomes her master. However she drops the idea and leaves. Now the person he doesn’t want to find out most is in his room: Sohara. He knows he’s dead. But surprisingly she didn’t give him her trademark chop. But instead, she is asking him he does perverted stuff to Nymph and Astrea lately but not Ikaros. She gets up and leaved without saying anything else. Something smells fishy. The girls plot to punish him. First they distract him by faking they’re taking off their clothes in the yard. When he goes to view them, they reflect the blinding lights into his eyes. Tomoki is going to get back at them and strips naked to show his ‘little buddy’ at the girls. They get horrified when they see his ‘bug’. To finish it off, Tomoki puckers his lips as though as he wants to kiss them. Ikaros peeps through and flusters. Her reactor is giving out steam! In the end, Sohara chases Tomoki while Nymph and Astrea destroy his intricate pipelines. But Tomoki hasn’t learnt his lesson yet. Using a new sophisticated system, Tomoki has Ikaros in space holding a mirror. This time all they need to do is to change coordinates and he has a new peeping scene. His final voyeur came when he peeped at Sohara so her chop was superb enough to send his skull cracking into half. A view to die for, eh? Lastly, we see Eishirou continuing his research when he hears over the radio about an impending storm and thinks the worse is to come. Chaos has evolved and now a grownup version. She has escaped from the pressure of the ocean’s depths and is excitedly on her way to teach everyone the meaning of love. Poor seagull didn’t know what sliced it.

Episode 11
Tomoki wakes up from another frightening dream that Daedalus is warning him about evolved Chaos coming and sees the other Angeloids destroyed. On a heavily rainy day, Ikaros falls ill as Nymph stays back to look after her. When Tomoki and Sohara leave, Ikaros do not remember who they are. Nymph diagnoses her and though her self-repair programme is activated, there is a programme that is erasing Tomoki from her memories. Ikaros is able to remember Tomoki but is saddened that she doesn’t want to forget her master. In school, Eishirou tells them about the several strange phenomena that are happening. After Tomoki tells about his dream, Eishirou thinks not only Ikaros is targeted but Tomoki too. Eishirou and Mikako are investigating the storm with Astrea out in the field. She sees Chaos within. Both sides clash with Chaos really wanting to teach her the meaning of love. Eishirou contacts Tomoki and tells him to go to Synapse via Dive Game. He meets Daedalus who gives him a lock that can stop Chaos. Tomoki is upset with all this annoyance but it’s not himself that he is feeling but rather the Angeloids as they should be the ones living in peace and quiet. Ikaros and Nymph arrive on scene and since they can’t take down an evolved Chaos, they need to work together. After studying her attack patterns, they put their plan in motion. It doesn’t go well as Nymph and Astrea got captured. Ikaros plans to unleash her Uranus Queen powers and wouldn’t mind sacrificing her memories of Tomoki as long as she protects him. Chaos is going to teach them what she learnt from the painful lessons of love when Tomoki reappears and says he wants to be with all of them. He willingly becomes Nymph and Astrea master and orders them to live. Their feelings for Tomoki became so great that Nymph is able to sprout new wings while the rest power up. Chaos’ love reasoning gets more twisted as she thinks they all love her for sinking her to the bottom of the ocean and that she’ll repay them with love by killing them all. The trio cooperate to finally bring down Chaos. She feels she is really loved by her sisters because it hurts so good. The love-crazy Angeloid is prepared to meet her fate for the sake of love but Astrea couldn’t kill her. Tomoki rushes to her side and in tears feels sad for her suffering. Then a different kind of pain fills Chaos’ reactor but this one feels warm. She collapses and he puts the lock over her chain. The storm stops as Tomoki praises them all for a good job well done.

Episode 12
Chaos is left in Daedalus’ care. Since Nymph has her wings back, she is able to use her data processing abilities to restore Ikaros’ memories. Tomoki’s peace and quiet continues to evade him since the Angeloids continue to freeload and annoy him. He thinks of staying in his sanctuary in the toilet again when Ikaros comes into ask about the proposal. However Tomoki isn’t amused and reprimands her about knocking the door before coming in and to flush properly! Why is he reprimanding her without his pants on?! Anyway he has a special favour to ask of her again. Yeah, another perverted scheme. After transforming into Tomoko, he becomes the pool water to fondle all the girls’ boobs. Till he touches Nymph’s. Of course they know this is Tomoki’s doing as they drain the pool water out. But Mikako isn’t going to let this go very easily and organizes a wide hunt for that lecher. Tomoko hides in the girl’s toilet and gets amused with, well, the girl’s toilet. After all his perverted antics, he’s acting like he has never been into one? When several girls come in to do their business, he gets this terrible idea to peep but eventually couldn’t do it. Then the worse scenario comes. Sohara and co are going to clean the toilet before going home (apparently they can’t find Tomoki). Noticing a locked cubicle, they think somebody is inside. Tomoko remembers he taught Ikaros about knocking on the door so he uses Morse code to communicate with her! Thing is, Ikaros translated what Tomoko is knocking out loud. Now they are suspicious. Tomoko then meows like a cat but the rest aren’t buying it and this definitely confirms the culprit of you-know-who. Tomoko can’t escape because Mikako somehow put electric barb wires on top and MIBs with guard dogs at the door. Plus, Mikako gives Sohara a saw to saw off the lock! Thinking hard on how to escape, Tomoko remembers the time when grandpa left because grandma found out he was cheating on her. His last parting words, “A good woman washes everything away like a tide”. Tomoko gets an idea on how to escape. To flush herself down the toilet bowl! WTF?! When Sohara opens the door, she sees the most incredible sight ever: Tomoko sitting in the middle of the toilet bowl trying to go down while the water gushes out everywhere. Of course cannot flush out lah! Cannot fit lah! However Sohara isn’t amused and helps push Tomoko down the bowl. Haha! I don’t know how but it really worked. Astrea narrates the workings of the sewerage process till its purification stages. Oh, Tomoki. You’re filled with sh*t.

Back home, Tomoki is in his toilet when Ikaros wants to talk to him. Remembering on the proper toilet etiquette, she pounds the door open and flushes Tomoki down the toilet bowl! Now he got easily flushes down because he is in chibi form! Ikaros flies off to search for him but meets Mikako. She learns about Ikaros’ proposal. Fishing Tomoki out from the ocean (that’s where he ended up floating), Mikako grooms him up nicely and brings him to the church. He is surprised to see Ikaros in a beautiful wedding dress and Eishirou as the priest. They conduct a mock wedding and when they’re about to kiss, Tomoki backs off. He doesn’t remember he proposed to Ikaros. Mikako is having great fun so she has the other girls, Sohara, Nymph and Astrea come into the hall in their wedding dress and wants Tomoki to choose! Of course Mikako hints that he can pick anyone except her because she is already taken by a certain bespectacled guy. Now, the eternal dilemma that every harem guy has to face: Which girl to choose. Tomoki can’t take the pressure and lets loose a crazy scream when suddenly Chaos comes crashing from the roof. Then she happily leaps into his arms. “Oni-chaaaaaaaaan”. Oh dear. Hey, she’s back to her loli body again. But because of that, Tomoki is spared from choosing. As Sohara mentions, she prefers things to stay as they are now. Tomoki isn’t happy that everyone is having a meal in his place. Plus, Eishirou asks him to become Chaos’ master since taking 1 more Angeloid won’t make a difference. Oh yah. Like another one won’t be hard to handle, eh? Good thing Chaos isn’t hostile anymore but this means his peace and quiet is getting further and further, eh? Hello noise and chaos (mind the pun). Nymph is happy that Tomoki is their master so she takes him on flight around town.

Fallen For You…
Apparently that isn’t the end of it because just at the end of the last episode, a movie of this series is announced. From the teaser, seems like more drama and antics. And yes as mentioned, another new Angeloid to come and disrupt Tomoki’s peaceful and quiet days. But from the last time this second season promo was played out the same way, should I be fooled again? I’m not sure, it must be me because anime movies aren’t my kind of thing and even though the film was released back in late June 2011, I still haven’t got any plans to watch it. So far this season didn’t really reveal much of the mysterious New World in the sky. In the sense there is not much development or stunning revelation that will make our jaws drop. We are just given a glimpse of what it is and if not for Eishirou’s persistence and perseverance, we won’t be able to learn a little more especially if Daedalus actually really exists or not. So perhaps the movie could answer and make clear some of these questions. From major ones like the monument in Synapse Core and why it is linked to Tomoki’s dream to minor ones like that little trouble in Mikako’s house when Astrea was over for poker and the reason why Eishirou believes he has no real home to return to. If only if I could kick start myself to watch…

Other than that, every main character in the series seems to be as consistent as they are in the previous season. Mikako still the massacre-loving girl (man, you got to love her when she turns into this mode) and she can ‘kill’ without remorse while putting on a smile. Sohara still your typical girl-next-door who still can’t bring herself to confess her true feelings to Tomoki while playing a tsundere. Eishirou’s fascination with the New World never diminishes and in fact in some episodes, you can still hear him narrate his theories on history of mankind’s discovery and innovation that may lead to the possibilities of this so called New World. And yes, he still lives by the tent near the river. Tomoki is still the town’s number one pervert and numero uno public enemy of women. He really enjoys it and can you entirely blame it all on him when his grandpa is equally bad? While it may seem that the daily arguments and reprimanding of the Angeloids are natural and part and parcel of his life, but I feel that there is a little bit of progress in terms of bonding with Tomoki. Not only he grows to accept them or teaches them to do things on their will, he is willing to protect them and at times feel their pain and suffering. Besides his pervertness, he’s a nice guy. Just that he’s being a pervert most of the time. And his reprimanding is his way of showing his love to his Angeloids. I don’t remember about the last season, but Ikaros’ has displayed an emotion side of hers that I believe I have not seen before even if they are just short bursts of emotion. Nymph on the other hand continues her dilemma of being masterless till Tomoki finally takes her in. All she wants is to be accepted. Newcomer Astrea shows that she may just look menacing at first. But after you get to know her, she’s one lovable idiot. I have another theory why she is quite dumb. It’s because she’s always hungry! Can’t think on an empty stomach, eh? Besides, my guess is that her bottomless stomach is as proportionately big as her boobs :). We may not know much about the Sky Master except that he is one crazy sadistic dude. One thing is for sure that if there are going to be more sequels in the future, he’ll be one bad ass antagonist that Tomoki and co will have to deal with.

With a big chunk of the second season seemingly like fun fillers (well, at least anything that has got nothing to do with the New World and its workings), the fun part is of course Tomoki’s perverted antics. Whether it is some wrestling match or a snowball fight, it’s not the perverted things he does but also when he becomes into chibi mode. In some episodes, he retains this form as much as 90% of the episode and when he is so, you can expect that something funny and hilarious will happen. Yeah, you can say that he is one funny little guy. He never learns to control that beastly side of his. Why should he when he is having the time of his life? Sometimes I think he can transform so freely and frequently between these forms, heck, he may be some kind of Angeloid too! Only not because he’s a guy. I’m pondering over something. If the Angeloids were created not to have emotions or have dreams, seeing that all those who have come into contact with Tomoki ended up disobeying their master’s orders and developing their own feelings and free will, can I say that their technology is imperfect? I mean those people in the sky seem to look down (mind the pun) on the people on Earth. Maybe Tomoki without himself realizing it has something inside him so extraordinary that perhaps he is the one. No, I’m not thinking of his inner perverteness.

At first I thought that this season the producers are going to pull off another unusual feat by changing different opening themes for each opening credit, just like how they did for each and every ending theme for the first season is different. I was convinced after watching a totally full-on Tomoki version of Ring My Bell for the first episode (this theme was also the opening theme for the first season but this time replaces all sexy Ikaros views with Tomoki. Fancy viewing his chest in the opener?). But that isn’t to be when they maintain Heart No Kakuritsu by Blue Drops for the rest of the episodes. Though I remember that at one point they use a different singer to singer (if I’m not mistaken, it was Ikaros’ seiyuu). As usual, all the ending themes are different in this season too. All the seiyuus are retained in the season and the new addition that surprised me was Aki Toyosaki’s role as Chaos. My stereotypical view of her is that she suits perfectly voicing ditzy and airhead girls like Yui in K-ON! and Tomo in Seikon No Qwaser. But when she voices a very twisted Chaos, she seems perfectly fitting and convincing in making Chaos sound like a lost and dangerous Angeloid loli in search for the meaning of love. Kudos to her. Now that Chaos is part of the gang, I hope she’ll learn the correct meaning of love and hopefully Tomoki won’t impose his own version of love on her. My guts say that Chaos will be safe firstly because Sohara is around and secondly she’s flat. Oops. Hey, you got to admit that Tomoki likes busty babes. The bigger the better.

Now with a bunch of Angeloids in Tomoki’s home, you can safely say that his peaceful and quiet days are very much a distant dream. If this continues at this rate, he might need to get a bigger home to house all the Angeloids he ‘saves’ from the Sky Master’s torment. Heck, he can be the new harem ruler in the sky. But even with a few ladies flanking him, it is obvious he will have a tough choice making the call which want he really wants by his side. Can’t have everything? Well, he was able to have it his way by stopping the Angeloids from killing him or each other. On second thought, maybe choosing a girl would be a much tougher decision. So remember when your mother tells you about picking up stuff from the ground? Same thing too if you pick up stuff that fell out from the sky. You don’t know what kind of troubles that will come with it. Unless you don’t mind becoming a hero and saviour of mankind. Otherwise, isn’t it peace and quiet the best?
