Occult Academy episode 7

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.

Here he is, firing his lazers. Clearly an alien. Or a Tengu. Well, clearly not human.

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.

There was also a dead cow in this episode. However this clearly has nothing to do with the plot. Probably a natural phenomenon or something. Yup, clearly just a red herring.

        You don’t know how many times I keep typing TK instead of JK…

    Good episode this one, although I feel like watching fillers, they are still so entertaining…

    Now here is hoping that we get more real plot stuff in the next episodes.

    And TK is not an alien!! Didn’t you hear Fumiaki, he knows the real stuff :P

      Ah yes, but he only put on that silly alien costume to throw Fumiaki off his trail. And we all know Fumiaki isn’t exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer

    You distracted me with Maya and I forgot everything else in the post.

      Largely how this series goes by for me

    And here was me thinking that TK got cloned because of his awesome dowsing genes – the alien explaination makes much more sense!

      If that was the case, the question becomes who did the cloning. The aliens…or the humans?

    I completely forgot about the dead cow. How cruel, to involve a cow in an attempts to cheer Maya up. …I suppose you think Maya is worth the dead cow though?

      Maybe Smile ran over it in the truck by accident

    Mmm… pudding… *drools*

      Replace ‘pudding’ with ‘Maya’ and that’s how I spend my time while watching Occult Academy

    Your theories are almost as amusing as the show itself, but you know nothing, pitiful human. Our true plan intentions involving pudding have yet to come to your attention, pray it stays that way.

      Well, if your puddings are as toxic as your muffins…

      :-O
