Mao continues his journey from the last episode after he escapes from Sawada's apartment complex... SOMEHOW...
Sawada starts to give into despair about loosing little Mao. Shin to the rescue with his bold speech about not giving up snaps her out of it and the hunt continues. After all there's only so much a little girl can be calm and composed about after everything she's been through over the past few days.
Mao's outside adventure continues as the 2 kids search for him. I'm not sure how he could have gone to all these places without a lot of people noticing and grabbing him to keep him out of harm but well I guess we wouldn't have had an episode if things weren't done this way. From book stores to riding a sushi line, Mao seems to be having the time of his life until a he falls onto a cat and ends up being dropped off on a roof. Once there he starts to think about Sawada and how much he misses her. He spots a flower in a tree and instantly remembers it as her because of her flower hairpin. Tree = girl didn't you know?! Unaware that he is on a roof and in great danger of falling if he goes for the flower, he of course does so and ends up taking a tumble.
Thankfully out of no where a strange "masked man" catches Mao in mid air before he hits the ground. Sawada and Shin give a sigh of relief that baby Mao is safe but end up being quite confused over who/what his rescuer is all about.
This mystery man claims to know ALL about little baby Mao and he'll tell them everything if they go with him. The episode ends and I can't help but to think this man wants to kidnap everyone and do really dirty things to them. That won't happen of course but my imagination is silly sometimes. 😛
Chibi Devi continues to be adorable but it is starting to fall prey to some shoujo tendencies that I really can't stand. At the very beginning of the episode we see a glimpse at the real parents of this little demon baby. They wonder if the girl they picked is the right one for the job. Only time shall tell with her apparently. I still don't quite understand why the baby is sent off to live with Sawada honestly. But I guess it's some kind of baby demon training.
Sawada invites over her childhood friend Kyou. He of course is a kind caring fellow but doesn't have much brain room upstairs from what I can tell. He has a buddy named Shin that seems to care about Sawada but doesn't quite know how to show it because he likes to get upset over small things. He's the one that'll steal her heart of course since this is a shoujo. Sawada claims right away that she doesn't like him because of his attitude but I know he'll be the one to help her out the most with her new demon bundle of joy.
Mao doesn't quite like Shin's attitude either since the first thing he does is give him a fire bath because of his screaming and yelling.
The trio sit down just to think things through on who/what little baby Mao is. He's got those adorable ears and tail after all. Who wouldn't wanna give them a poke and pull to see if they are actually attached. By the end of it all they are still stumped at what he is. Shin is very irritated at the whole situation because he just doesn't understand Sawada really doesn't know a thing about this mystery child. Sawada is kind of an air head after all in my opinion. I mean who sees little ears and a tail like that and assumes they are accessories when she saw him naked already?
After Mao freaks out over being prodded by Shin, Kyou suddenly tells everyone that he has to go! His excuse is that he must go home to watch anime. I gave it a chuckle but honestly it was rather silly. I wish they could have thought up a better reason to get rid of his character than that. Love Pudding was the name of his anime by the way. Which totally sounds like some strange hentai title to me. Not a show they would show during prime time TV that's for sure. In all the confusion everyone gets up and leaves little Mao all alone in the room.
Being an adventurous child we all saw it coming when Mao gets up and ventures towards the bedroom door and then through the front door. I'm not sure how he got away without being seen by Sawada and Shin (since they were already outside...) but I'll cough that up to this being an anime and that kind of detail shouldn't be thought about. Where's cute little Mao gonna end up in the next episode?
Sawada is just an ordinary 14 year old girl. She goes to school and does other things a normal girl her age would do. She's a little depressed that she sucks at making friends and is always alone because her parents are never around but she still tries her best! One day she wakes up and pulls the sheets off her bed to find... A BABY... Her first reaction was to cover it back up. I'd do the same thing honestly. I wouldn't want to look at it anymore that's for sure. How the hell does a baby get into MY bed without me knowing anyway?! Let alone her bed!
So after the baby shits and screams for a while. Sawada changes the cloth and learns that the baby has a tail and cute little "wings" on his head. She totally knows it's a he now instead of a she cause she had to change his big stink! She then notices that the bib he came with has the name "Mao" on it. So of course she comes to the conclusion that the babies name is cute little Mao-chan. The baby responds and both rejoice until little Mao starts to freak out because he is hungry. Or so she assumes.
Having no baby clothing around, Sawada decides to put a dragon suit on Mao because the clothing he came in is all full of the poops still. Girls totally always have dragon suits just laying around in their rooms by the way. It's totally normal I swear!
During their walk to go and buy some milk, Sawada happens to meet up with those super rude classmates of hers. They instantly think she's skipping school because she isn't wearing her uniform. Cause that's totally the first thing that would pop into anyones head right?! They start to tease her saying that they won't tell the teacher if Sawada takes on their cleaning duties for a whole month. That's totally retarded but Sawada doesn't seem like she can stand up to the bullies so just ends up saying "so not fair" and drops a tear onto the cute little Mao-chan's cheek.
Mao instantly knows that these girls are up to no good and takes matters into his own little hands. IT'S TIME TO BREATH SOME FIRE ON THESE BITCHES!!! No one has a clue what just happened or even how it happened! The 2 barbecued girls and Sawada stand in shock as cute little Mao laughs away.
Adorable first episode even if it lasted 5 minutes. I really like short episode series anyway so this is perfect! I like how this is pretty much the shoujo equivalent of the shounen series Beelzebub! Same concept just super girly! I'm completely in love with the OP too and it's SO simple! Chibi Devi, Chibi Devi, Chibi Deviiiiiii!
