Keroro Gunsou – 100

ケロロ軍曹/Sgt. Frog/Keroro Gunsou Anime episode 100

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Keroro Gunsou - 100The platoon’s base’s self-destruct is counting down when a bolt of lighting strikes the Hinata house, causing the platoon to lose their memories. They gather in Keroro’s room and try to remember. Giroro remembers a character on their title, leading everyone to think they are an idol group. After trying some of their anime theme songs and Dororo’s appearance, they decide they aren’t an idol group, but a sentai group (aka: Power Rangers). That fails so they try a comedy routine, but can’t remember from that either. Meanwhile, Natsumi and Fuyuki are in the base, having lost their memories, as Keroro and company arrive in their bridge-command center, where they discover the base is on a countdown to destruction.

Keroro Gunsou - 100Fuyuki wonders if they might be a family since in the next room is a traditional, Japanese living/dining room. Everyone takes on certain roles but no one remembers who they are until Keroro starts stirring natto, which he was doing before he lost his memory. Fuyuki gets everyone to remember what they were doing before they lost their memories and Kururu remembers going to cut wires. Finding the self-destruct mechanism in the wall of the giant bath, a fight breaks out over which wire to cut. A strand of Keroro’s hair is cut and it is revealed that Kururu’s satellite had caused all of this, having been hacked into. Seeing their antics, the satellite decides they are not worth killing and leaves as Kururu wonders who hacked in.

Thoughts/Review:

Keroro Gunsou - 100Basically, this episode was little more than an excuse for parodies. I know I saw Gundam and Space Battleship Yamato references as well as Power Rangers.  While I’m not very versed in Japanese comedy shows, I did see what I believe were references to Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!! and possibly Razor Ramon Hard Gay (or the show he was featured on, Bakusho Mondai no Bakuten, since one of the lines given were one’s he’d give when he’d have a supposed letter of his read on the show before his segment started).  I could be wrong there.  I have no clue what that family segment in the second half of the episode was supposed to be parodying. No clue about possible singer parodies either.

Beyond that, not much to talk about and the episode wasn’t funny to me.  Oh well.

  1. I found this one quite clever. I love the “over the top” episodes, manzai comedy routines, and self-references to previous theme music. In fact the “KORORO” theme turned out to be a vital clue, although it seems they dropped it during the episode. And the whole episode turns out to be a prologue to the bad guy platoon we’ve been seeing in the OP all this time! Anyway, thanks for the blog. Very useful to understand the Japanese references! (Did you notice the rakugo “take away his cushion” penalty?) Doesn’t look like you made more past 2011, but hope you resume sometime!
