Kyouran Kazoku Nikki #18 — Doctor, Doctor, Give Me the News

No pill’s gonna cure my ill.


As far as the total nonsensical comedy fillerish episodes go, this was one of the better ones. It kept me mostly amused through the entire thing, and while the Chika fanservice (or poor attempts at it) was ramped up quite a bit, at least it provided a few seconds of silence in the face of Kyouka’s nonstop chattering barrage. It’s exactly as you’d expect though. Ouka gets sick, house falls apart as the family tries to take care of him. Yuka shoos them out so Kyouka tracks down some cursed mask which then infects Ouka with nanomachines, so they shrink down to tiny size to fight it, even if they have to stop his heart a few times along the way to get there.

I got the most laughs by far this episode from Ginka and Chika’s various antics. After Ginka accidently chased Kyouka out from trying to sleep next to Ouka, he planned to do the same before being caught in the act by Chika and dragged off. Teika was the whipping boy for the episode, especially during the mandrake parts in the middle, being forced to pull it out as it shrieked (everybody else had headphones on) and then while they all passed pitcher of juiced mandrake around blushing about who would feed him mouth to mouth, he’s the one that ended up drinking it. Certainly not the most interesting or sophisticated brand of humor, but it was enough slapstick to at least keep me relatively interested… at least moreso than the animal arc that made up the previous two episodes.


Hot springs and a sloth loli.

  • There’s no problem that can’t be solved with sufficient application of high explosives.

  • Aroduc says:

    Actually, the problem she’s trying to solve there is that she found Gekka cuddling with Ouka. So, somewhat more sensible than usual for Kyouka.
