The Illusive… Siesta Labyrinth 「幻想の…昼寝迷宮(シエスタ・ラビリンス)」
Napping is SERIOUS business ok.
Continuing on from last episode’s focus on supporting characters, this week is Kumin-senpai’s turn to shine! In the fantasy world that is chuunibyou-ed, our Oriental Magick Napping Society in Summer, faces a very real situation this week when the existence of their club room is threatened. If you’re not using the room for legitimate club activities, the Student Council will evict you. So it’s come down to Kumin-senpai to save the day by justifying how napping is a legitimate sport and a competitive one at that. Do not underestimate the art of napping and siesta!
President Rikka of the proves that she has what it takes to be President, by faking her way through in her chuunibyou monologue. Obviously that won’t work so thankfully boyfriend Yuuta prepared a pre-written speech for her to mumble off. Except mumbling gave the same effect as her chuunibyou monologue, leaving the Student council with ??? all over. Although to be fair, did anyone see the rest of the competition in that meeting? What sort of clubs are there in this school?! Lol.
I’ve just gone with the flow and accepted that it’s very plausible to set up a Napping Club given that this is anime world after all. Who knew there was that much to napping and that there’s even a rival school club?! The names of the Napping Siesta Club in the rival school are just outright hilarious, playing on the words associated with sleep. For example Ichiba Harumu literally translates to “(it was all) a spring dream”, the name Youko pays tribute to sheeps and Nemuri Sui is just the kanji for sleep (noun) backwards!
This napping competition is a team sport so how can Rikka and co. win against 5 adorable sleepy heads with just Kumin-senpai? Yuuta’s ingenious plan of staying up all night over at his place backfires spectacularly when everyone has too much fun they end up having a sleepover sans a pitiful Makoto. And by everyone, that includes Rikka aka the Tyrant Eye’s
love rival Sophia Ring SP Saturn VII Satone. It’s suffice to say she invited herself over by climbing down. So obviously Rikka’s not thrilled to find not only that Satone was having fun dancing along with Yuuta, but that the two middle school classmates and chuunibyou partners-in-crime were found sleeping next to each other!!! Awkward… but it’s ok Tyrant Eye, for Sophia Ring SP Saturn VII honours thy contract with the Dark Flame Master and will pass on the affectionate nose-rub rightfully to you~
I love how each week the delusions just seem to top each previous episodes’. Kumin-senpai shines as the Nap Angel and goes all out with Three Parts Wake! Vanishment this world!
