Anime Review

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Story 1

Keroro decides to create a Mecha Nyororo to battle the Nyororo rather than put on special cream. Further, this will allow him to film the event, enter it in a contest, and reap the rewards. However, filming doesn’t feel right, so he decides to have human women (and Mois) audition for a part in the film. Natsumi is not interested until her crush, Subaru-senpai shows interest. Koyuki is interested because she can pick Natsumi to play with her. Momoka is interested because of Fuyuki.

During the audition, the girls enthusiastic aura ends up giving power to Keroro. Likewise, Tamama’s jealousy. As a thunderstorm roars overhead, the Nyororo arrives to attack. Keroro adopts the uniform and motorcycle of some Japanese action hero. He “flies” to the Mecha Nyororo for a heroic entrance, but the Nyororo intercepts him, wringing him dry.

Story 2

Natsumi wants the failed Mecha Nyororo cleaned up and removed. Keroro wants to turn it into a weapon platform. However, the massive number of bills from the failed movie attempt prevents this. Keroro stops Giroro from dismantling it. Kururu repairs Mecha Nyororo and gives it a brain, so that it becomes Keroro’s pet. However, Kururu has installed a button that will make Mecha Nyororo powerful against Nyororo.

Keroro starts spending a lot of time with Mecha Nyororo. This makes Tamama very jealous. As such, Tamama decides to have Mecha Nyororo and Keroro play tennis, knowing Mecha Nyororo doesn’t have hands. However, Mecha Nyororo transforms his legs into arms with hands. Tamama is crushed. However, Keroro becomes too competitive and accidentally sends his racket into the button. As such, Queen Nyororo and her brood come to attack. Mecha Nyororo leads them away from Earth and warps away with them.

Thoughts/Review:

Maybe it is because I’m still getting over the flu. Or maybe it is because I recently had to get a dozen old Keroro Gunsou reviews out of Google’s DMCA penalty box for false claims. But for some reason, I felt like laying back in my office chair and catching Keroro Gunsou Episode 115.

Story 1: Kaiju/Action Hero Movie Parody

Sadly, I cannot give what specific movie or series is being parodied in Keroro Gunsou Episode 115. If I had to guess, it is Kamen Rider. But a site noting Kamen Rider parody moments listed a few Keroro Gunsou (Sgt. Frog) episodes, but not this episode. His movie title references Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla. But if you know, let me know.

That aside, we still had the typical nuttiness that the series is known for. Natsumi gets roped into the mess, thanks to her crush on her senpai. And things end up about the way you’d expect. However, it was fun for what it was.

Story 2: Oversized Pet

For the second story of Keroro Gunsou Episode 115, things pick up where the first left. Beyond the obvious Gundam model (Gunpla) mention, I don’t know if this episode was to specifically parody anything. Mainly, this was just to show Keroro having fun with Mecha Nyororo, who’s now his pet.

Further, the episode was to give us comedy hijinks at a jealous Tamama’s expense. As before, things go exactly as you expect. If there’s a “don’t push the red button” speech, the red button is getting pushed. However, I will admit that I didn’t expect the gag to be delayed in payoff. But after Keroro and Mecha Nyororo bonded, I did expect the ending. Actually, it kinda reminded me of an episode of Star Wars Rebels. (Brownie points if you know what I mean.) But the ride was fun for what it was.

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

In the end, Keroro Gunsou Episode 115 does some parody stuff and some comedy stuff. None of it is particularly funny, and everything is pretty predictable. However, I enjoyed the episodes for what they were — mindless fluff.
