Spoiler Summary/Synopsis:

Nasa and Tsukasa face the centipede monster that Kaguya created with some help from Nakiri. Tsukasa realizes this is all staged and puts on a bad acting routine to get herself and Nasa away. Once cleared, Tsukasa explains all of the RPG things they will need to do to defeat the monster, including finding a valve wheel that will need to be reattached.

Elsewhere, Aya stumbles onto said valve wheel and then using her own gaming skills, manages to overcome Kaguya’s puzzle to find the arrow that Tsukasa figured she and Nasa would need. Hotaru and Jessie find Aya. They are attacked by the headless samurai armor. However, with Kaguya’s special effects, Aya “defeats” the monster.

The trio look out the window to discover Shirogane held captive on the broken down Ferris Wheel that are on the grounds of the mansion.  However, Aya rallies Hotaru and Jessie to rescue their friend.

Thoughts/Review:

Mostly silly fun in Tonikaku Cawaii Chapter 129. Nothing wrong with that.

RPG Fun

As someone who loves RPG games, I got a kick out of Hata-sensei making references to puzzles in said games in Tonikaku Cawaii Chapter 129. I guess he may have been specifically referencing Final Fantasy VII, for me, the valve wheel reference reminded me of a recent Dishonored video I did. (Link to the exact moment in the YouTube video is HERE!)

I loved how Aya instinctively stumbled onto this stuff and went with it. She just breezed through the puzzles, which are things I don’t normally enjoy in RPGs.

As for Tsukasa, she figured things out, thanks to her gaming experience. It was humorous seeing her reaction to understanding that everything was being staged and what they’d have to do to “solve” the situation.

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

In the end, Tonikaku Cawaii Chapter 129 is OK for what it is–a mildly amusing tale taking a jab at RPG games. But other than this mild amusement, there’s not a lot there. And there’s no confrontation between Kaguya and Tsukasa, though maybe that’s to come.
