For the villains the monster for this episode is a Sun Vulcan monster. It's a Monger with a big tablet on his face and it looks great. The suit design for this monster really shows some cartoon aspects on it which was very apparent with the Monger's designs. They were pretty wacky with their designs so seeing a Monger with a tablet just smacked on his face fits the theme greatly since some Mongers had this design. I remember one just had a camera head. Well to be exact it's a smart phone not a tablet, but it really just look like a tablet on his face. It's weapon is mostly a rod, but it has a giant ear piece on the top. It's powers then were well using the smart phone on his face as he shown fake comments on the Aoi-tan movie where fans were not happy. He even forces these inside their heads by using a beam that projected his image in their heads. My goodness was this monster goofy and it's just perfect for the Monger designs.
Thanks to the new Monger he ruined Aoi's image as her anime even starts to fall down. This causes not only changes for her image, but trouble for Hakase since she was the voice actress for her. Hakase gets completely in the red as her cafe is rundown with no lights and many broken items. The whole scene even puts a Sepia effect to showcase how poor she got and it wasn't really needed. I guess they didn't want to make the walls look crumbled so they did that effect. Also even Hakase's clothes become worn out and her hair becomes a complete mess. Then while our heroes try to get more power she does still tries to get Luna back on the team.
Moegi soon completes the doujin, but it's not anything that we were expecting. It's actually for Nobuo as she makes a Aoi-tan doujin. After reading it Nobuo gets powered up and then the team hear about the Smart Phone Monger attacking people. So wait were they deluding that they saw a news coverage of him or was he in the actual world? Oh well the team get into action and then all of a sudden Luna appears as Blue again. Yea she comes back for some reason. I guess Hakase did something to convince her as there wasn't an explanation, but I guess the next episode will explain why. We didn't see much of Luna for this episode as she got one scene outside of the action which she was just doing a video so that she could post online. She even got a call from her manager. I would say Hakase probably did some convincing with the manger since he seems to have Luna on a chain. Still Luna was still cheerful in the fight and her intro for the second fight was great she just runs past the villains and heads to the two heroes.
This was another great episode, but there are little flaws. I was wishing that Moegi's husband would become a character on the show since this makes the marriage angle of the episode just seem like nothing. I mean they could have just had someone else in her family tie Moegi down of her otaku rights. Then Luna coming back for no reason was odd, but I have a feeling it will be brought up later, hopefully. Also there was enough information to have us think what the reason was. Other than that though there were great references and this episode really packed a lot with so much energy! I give this episode an A-
