Maya’s one-piece, figure hugging, zettai ryouki outfit is one of the most annoyingly teasing outfits you’ll ever see. Maybe it’s because I’ve become so used to Highschool of the Dead shoving boobs and ass and naked apron, g-string wearing girls at us at every opportunity that having a show with a hot girl and yet cleverly not showing us the good at frequent intervals is much more frustrating than I ever thought it could be. Yet I find myself far more interested in Maya than any of the HOTD women because of it. The old strip-tease mantra of ‘it’s not what you show, it’s what you don’t show, is on full display here. Or not, as the case is.
Oh, and JK is clearly an alien.
First I suppose I better prove that to you readers. See this picture of JK in the future? We are lead to believe that this phone shows whatever is photographed in the future. Assuming this is true, we are looking at a picture of one of two things. First is that this is TK and his triplet sons. I believe we can discount this theory because there is no women on the planet who would be willing to have kids with TK. I hold that statement to be self-evident. The only person who might have a romantic relationship with TK is Smile and I have yet to witness any proof that he can procreate.
That leaves us with the clear solution that TK has multiplied, perhaps as an asexual being. Obviously he’s not human if he can do that, so he must be an alien. That, or he’s a Tengu, but either way he is in league with the aliens.
Once you realise this fact, the whole rest of the episode starts to sink into place. First he created the landing pads for the aliens but clearly underestimated the human races thirst for the occult. Hence when he saw his sign on tv he temporarily lost his form as a human and released an energy beam in Smile’s direction, as we can see in the above picture (Smile has super human strength and is fully capable of resisting an energy beam from an alien, even one as powerful as TK). Realising that Maya might discover his secret, TK devised a plan to make it seem like the whole thing was a big joke.
Now I’m still uncertain about Smile’s species but I believe he’s probably some sort of super human who received his powers indirectly from aliens at one point in his life. This has led to him having slightly alien DNA, which explains why he has sexual attraction to an alien such as TK. Together they convince the father of Maya’s friend (who is probably doing this for exactly the reason he states on screen. Now smokes, mirrors or dowsing rods with him) to pull the whole hokey alien stunt to throw Maya and Fumiaki completely off their scent. Now they can land the spaceships in those fields without the fear of being taken out by Maya.
The reason they were in Mikaze’s restaurant in the first place ties in with my theory from last week about her developing a special ingredient she puts in her bread to help prevent the children at the academy and Fumiaki from being infected by the immenent alien invasion. TK has already begun to suspect something is up with her, but has unfortunately gone for the wrong food item. He must have assumed that ‘service‘ was a code word for ‘super special awesome saving ingredient‘, when it is, in fact, a code word for ‘I’m about to demonstrate what Gainaxing is, please pay close attention‘. This is why he started to stockpile pudding, before getting sidetracked with the whole alien thing, when he should have payed closer attention to the bread. Oh well, his loss.
