I can understand this series being less popular than, T&B, Steins and Anohana. However, even Azazel-san has higher pre-orders than Denpa...come on!!!!!

Meme-centered episode was epic. And we got loli-Meme as a bonus.

That is all.

Touwa Meme is such a strong character. I am hard pressed to think of anyone better. Total win.

I love how the episode gradually tied up most of the loose ends in the story, culminating in the touching final revelation.

Other points of note:

-So Erio has twice the sparkly-hair and alien-otaku genes?

-How can Makoto not know his own great grandmother? Well... it's not a stretch.

-Meme-san.... T_T

Oh... Meme knew Elliot since they were kids? Moe points +100000000000. And by the way she was talking, it doesn't seem like Elliot knew about Erio when he left. Now wondering exactly what happened between them.

Didn't expect grandma to be Meme's actual grandma, which in turn meant that she's Erio and Itoko's great grandma. But really, something wrong with the female genes of that family? Seems like each and every one of them has a few screws loose lols.

We also know that grandma runs a candy store, Meme runs the confectionery store that employs Maekawa (didn't see this one coming; always wondered what Meme did for a living), and now Erio works at grandma's candy store. Guess they're alike in more ways than one.

This episode more than made up for the lack of Meme in last week's episode. It was nice to see her hidden side. She's a very caring and kind woman, I was moved by her relationship with her grandma (his alien obsession runs in the family, huh? ). Marry me, Meme-san!!

We finally got a glimpse of Elliot. He had white hair, so this leads me to think spacesuit girl is related to him. My bet is that she's Erio's cousin (from her father side, then). She could also be her half sister, but yeeeeaaah, I can't see the series going there.

Poor taste surrounds us. We even participate from time to time.

Hmm. Kind of like life: the climax occurs -- the wedding, the birth, the escape, the triumph -- and then life continues. Shinbou rejects normal. We rushed to the conclusion of the introduction, flying into the sea, then the real show follows the evolution of Erio and Meme and Makoto in response to it, and the complete intertwining of everyone until we reach (hopefully) some larger climax.

Will Meme's "ceremony" be effective? In what way?

Wouldn't that pacing have come from the source material, though? Or did Shinbou change the order of things in adapting it?

From a quick glance through of the last volume, I think that's just the way the novels are written...

Quite likely so. I am not following the novels. But whether it was in them or not, Shinbou is the one who (1) chose to animate these particular novels and (2) chose to keep or create this order.

Makes sense, although after this episode I have a different theory:

Space suit girl = grandma. Imagine her a lot younger. Eye colour's a pretty good match, too. And she's introduced the alien trope into their lives... Would make sense, too, wouldn't it?

(Great) Grandma is one of my favourite characters in the show.

This was a very nice episode. The sentimentality makes up for the disatisfied feeling of not getting enough crazy stuff. It's always nice to have a crazy story show signs of sentimentality and meaning. It's heartwarming.

Actually I'm pretty sure his hair is suppose to be the same color as Erio's. I think it just seems like white because the "shine" is covering half his face and hair.

I'd like to think that his hair is really white though, which means that Meme's dark blue hair + Elliot's white hair = Erio's light blue hair. Yes, I know genetics doesn't really work that way, but this is Denpa Onna after all.

So yeah, Meme spotlight episode. Seeing things from her perspective really shows how everything is connected and explains a bunch of stuff, it's also a nice look toward Meme's character beyond a trolling teasing MILF. She's actually trying to be a good mother, but unsure as of how to help her child and ends up neglecting her as a result, but she still took care of her even if it's behind the scenes. Heh, reminds me of another single parent in this season, Jintan's Dad from Ano Hana.

I will try get over that 20 minute overload of Meme, and right a couple of comprehensible sentences

Truth is I actually didn't know at the time when I first posted my response to Malkuth but my comment is in a sense true.
And in a sense I guessed also right, since anyone older than a grandmother, can still be called a grandmother

Meme needs to form her own harem, like the succubus queen

Anyway, Meme being the most awesome character aside... I call it, the space-suite girl from the OP is Ashiro's daughter

Meme-tan, she is one of them characters you want to see more of and then when they deliver such a thing, they go and throw in 1 single little thing that almost steals the episode, Erio's defective rocket

But the Meme-tan win holds out till the end.

5:54 - Who would have thought seeing a 40 year old single mother running around her bedroom holding a plastic rocket could be so....how do I put it, awesome?
