SYNOPSIS

Taro Momoi, who came to deliver to Café Donbura, collapses with a staggering gait. Meanwhile, a special demon appears in the city. Donbrothers responds, but Don Momotaro has no energy and is easily blown away. Haruka and Shinichi, who thought that Taro’s appearance was not the only thing, decided to talk to Jin Momoi. To cure Taro’s illness, the Donbrothers decided to make something based on the recipe.

GENERAL NOTES

-The parallel between Sonoi and Tarou

-Kibi Points and Kibi-dango have me wondering what “kibi” means. That’s something to look into.

-Something about that kid being the monster and the look of the monster worked together to make him feel really sinister, but also sympathetic

-Why do Medals go to Kaito? What is his part in all this?

REFLECTIONS

-Why is there a cost to Tarou’s power? Why does Tarou have these rules? Who set them for him and the rest of the Donbrothers? Is Sonoi’s power or the Beastial part of the cost of Tarou’s power?

NEXT EPISODE

SCORE

Episode 9: 8/10

The episode was funny, intriguing, had some interesting character moments and had a cool new power for Don Momotaro. I was thuroughly entertained. I especially like how it was so off-beat and non-traditional.

CREATOR SPOTLIGHT

I keep talking about a superhero series I am working on. You can get a glimpse of my creative process as I figure out how to use The Book of Judges as a Model for a Superhero Universe.

The series theme is based on the legend of Momotarō and Virtual Reality. Because of this, many of the show’s graphics are styled to resemble traditional Japanese watercolor brush paintings, and the series makes more extensive uses of CGI than past productions.
