Though I’m still not completely on board with Somera-chan, the show has made me laugh more than i expected considering the source creator. This episode delves into the school side in a way as we get Somera looking to deal with a problem with Kukuru as she’s had to put together some artwork for an assignment but it’s proven to be difficult for Kukuru. Somera’s solution? To sneak into the teachers house and orchestrate a way to get her to fix the homework. Of course, these aren’t exactly the smartest of kids and it turns into a weird kind of silliness – especially since the teacher is halfway cracked herself. The event turns into a strange ruse that’s just weird in a way that does make you laugh because of just how much they commit to it.
With an episode that focuses a bit on Miyamoto-sensei and her own weird proclivities, there’s an almost Slenderman kind of thing going on here, or at least that’s the vibe it gives off. The opening piece really doesn’t set the stage for the episode well, but once they get to the teacher’s house it moves a bit better and amps up the silliness and weirdness in a decent enough way, even if it’s just got a kind of odd sense of pacing and timing about it.
