Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi 02 – ” Neko Neko Gloves Revamped! “

Electric Cat Gloves / What the hell were they thinking? /Hail technology.

Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi Episode 2 talked about a enemy gang targetting and kidnapping Ryouko. Eventually , Ryoushi opens up a can of Whoop-Ass (TM) and snipes down the enemy with his slingshot, allowing the Otogi Bank to infiltrate and pass Ryouko the new devastating Neko Neko Gloves Revamped, with which she owns the crud out of the enemy gang.

The episode ends with everyone all happy and an unknown enemy smirking in the shadows.

This episode seems to serve two purposes: One, to make Ryoushi look less useless, and Two , to make Ryouko seem more tsundere. Even the narrator mocks her for being tsundere when Ryoushi catches her petting his dogs:

General thoughts include a newfound awe for Ryoushi. Incredible accuracy, as expected of a hunter from birth. It was cool to find how he snuck in to the base, and called before sniping them down one by one. As the members run around in circles, he snipes them all one by one, eventually defeating the Demon-like boss who could not be taken down even with the electric taser-like properties of the NNG. Although admittedly, he should have made his move before the boss tried to rape Ryouko. Or perhaps he stayed for the show? Nah, he was waiting for the right moment to strike.

We also get introduced to Ryouko being a “Wolf in a wolf’s skin.” She is revealed to be indeed, very weak and defenseless, but trains herself so she could tell herself she was strong. When put to the test, she breaks down inside. She’s extremely tough on the outside, strong and fast-punching, but inside, she’s soft, loving cute things and whatnot. Although we don’t really see what led to his to begin with, it was interesting to see them build on this aspect. Judging by the spirit/illusion/loli Ryouko that appeared during her dream-like sequence, it appears that something bad had happened to her during her childhood : which seems extremely likely.

..and one last thing. Aside from the awesome narrator, they appear to intend to use the Neko Neko Gloves as a recurring joke, or a means to end each fight. I’m not sure whether I want that…

A taser to the face and you're still alright?

    I liked the more tsundere Ryouko, so much cuter. As for Ryoushi, I thought it was cool how he knocked out the boss using skill and technique (ie: blocking with both arms) rather than brute force.
