Tsukune inherits the power of Magneto. Shocking!
Within 10 seconds of the show, boobs! More fanservice this week courtesy of Ririko-sensei who made a brief appearance in the previous episode. From appearance it's evident this one heck of a lusty teacher that's giving the boys at school a reason to attend her class. She teaches math, which happens to be Tsukune's weakest subject. Finally, something I can relate to!
Desperate, Tsukune seeks Moka's assistance, as failing would mean having to take remedial classes during summer. Without hesitation, Moka agrees to his request, but man, the way she does it makes it look like she's inviting him for a shag. Of course, that's not what she really meant, as what she really wanted was to take a bite at Tsukune as usual. Being a harem show, you can always expect Tsukune's hoes to be in the vicinity, as they're not going to let him spend some alone time with Moka. With that, they all have a group study session, with the loli Yukari taking charge.
By the end of the day after exhaustively staring at each other, Moka and Tsukune were about to head home, until Ruriko suddenly showed up and found out about the aforementioned study group. With her sex appeal, she easily manages to convince Tsukune that he requires professionally tutoring from her. After being reminded about the summer vacation that follows up after the finals, Tsukune is motivated more than ever to pass.
Tsukune show up for Ririko's after class lessons, and before you start thinking dirty stuff, that's because it actually is. Don in her dominatrix outfit, this sadistic maths teacher just confirms what you would probably have suspected when she first showed up. And lo, it turns out Ririko's attracted to Tsukune because of his "human smell", similar to why the mermaids wanted him in the first place. Ever since then, our hero is put under an enchantment that makes him mutter mathematic formulas non-stop to the point of zombification. In his state, he ignores everyone, including Moka who is accused by Ririko for distracting Tsukune from being able to study. Gullible to such things, Moka takes it all in and goes all emo.
Because the producers were unable to come up with any proper material, we are treated to a short sequence of everyone studying for the exams, complete with an insert song too, which incidentally is from Moka's character CD. After that commercial, Tsukune is still being put under intense tutelage by Ririko, in more ways than one. This however, she becomes more aggressive than ever and reveals her true form as some half snake lady and attacks Tsukune. His cries somewhat become audible to Moka who managed to show up in time to rescue him. This time around, Mizore lends a hand by distracting Ririko, probably as payback for her accusal in the previous episode.
Unfortunately, all they managed to accomplish was piss Ririko off, and she quite literally puts Moka in a bind. Cue Tsukune who is snapped back into reality after he sees the study notes Moka had prepared for him earlier. With that, the usual transformation sequence takes place, and Ririko is put in her place, this week within 31 seconds! The finals arrive, and Tsukune has lost all memory of the stuff he had studied while under Ririko. Still his hard work paid off, and he manages to pass, with flying colors too.
Hur hur, summer vacation episode next week, which means more tits and ass. All expectations that they'd somehow advance the plot a little have been crushed, but I guess there's no real surprise regarding this, so I'm not going to complain. With that, I eagerly await more pointless fanservice to come my way in the following episode. Shin out.
