Keroro has the platoon practicing a more traditional Japanese dance for a more traditional Japanese song he’s composed. He wants the song on the radio to help with the invasion of Earth. The platoon hijack Saburo’s radio show for their own. The ratings go up, but since Keroro wants max ratings, he has Giroro use a voice modulator to pretend to be Sumomo-chan.

As per usual, two random stories await in Keroro Gunsou Episode 117. But since folks continue to look for these reviews and ask for more, I’m here to oblige. 👍

The Tanabata Festival is something I’ve seen fairly frequently in anime or manga. As such, I wasn’t surprised to see it referenced in Keroro Gunsou Episode 117. The episode gives a version of the story of star-crossed lovers Orihime and Hikoboshi. However, that story isn’t important to what followed. I guess it had been a while since Momoka became enraged and went on a hunt. So we got that as well as a look at some of the wishes characters we know made.

Radio Program

For the second story in Keroro Gunsou Episode 117, we get Keroro having his own radio studio and hijacking another radio station’s frequency. The episode mentioned they’d tried something like this before. I didn’t do a deep search, so I can’t say for sure if they did or didn’t. Nevertheless, while radio programs may still be a thing in Japan, and radio does still exist in America, I couldn’t help but think that today, what Keroro’s platoon did wouldn’t be on radio, but on some streaming podcast.
