So what’s the show? UzaMaid! Episode 3.
So what’s this episode about? Yay! UzaMaid is back!
Uh-huh… that much is obvious by the fact we’re reviewing the damn thing! No I mean the UzaMaid that I fell in low-key love with in Episode 1 is back! Straight up perverted for the win!
So in other words, whatever nuance they built up with the second episode is gone? It’s not gone, it forms a foundation to the ~shenanigans~ going forward. See, here’s the thing this show exists in this hyper-reality that is akin to a Disney film—it’s basically Mary Poppins if Mary Poppins wanted to marry the youngest girl she was looking after.
Well it’s just that I wonder what the point of this show is? That’s all… The point? It’s a comedy, it doesn’t need a point! Here’s the main thing you need to know about this show—Tsubame is a muscular ex-military lolicon maid—but she’s also an exceedingly good and smart and caring person—this show raises the defence for being someone that’s both scorned by the populous at large but also something inherently selfless and caring.
So what happens in this episode? Misha needs to go back to school and our UzaMaid does everything in her power to get the little loli to do so. And she does! And it’s wonderful and wholesome, and Tsubame is so happy about having ‘gotten through’ to Misha that she breaks into the elementary school by hang-glider to make sure Misha is having fun and making friends. And she’s of course arrested for her troubles. Though the emotional weight of the episode comes from Misha ~finding her place~ at school after getting fed up with the other kids just liking her for her looks, she asserts herself and (with the help of her new friend Mimika) solves the class’ rapidly expanding hamster population problem. Which endears her classmates to her personality and resolve rather than her exotic Russian looks. It’s very sweet!
Wait? I thought you said this was more like episode 1 of UzaMaid, this didn’t sound too perverted? Okay, it strikes a balance between Episode 1 and Episode 2, but we still have Tsubame drooling over a bunch of elementary school kids as she’s on her way to work as well as the fantastic line as she’s fantasising about their eventual wedding “I promise to love you, even after your first period”.
*spit take* I know right?! Classic Tsubame…
Uh-huh, so happy with the show now? I’ve always been more or less happy with the show but this is definitely more of the mix of inappropriate and heartfelt that I wanted from the show and so hopefully it continues on this way going forward!
