Season 2 episode 2 recap…
The second episode of Miss Kobayashi S was titled ‘Hot Guy Kobayashi’ and focused on Ilulu’s growing relationship with our titular character.
Unfortunately, Kobayashi is still struggling with her new ‘addition’ after Ilulu temporarily turned her into a guy. She becomes even more attracted to Tohru, who tries to slip her a love potion once again.
However, after Tohru strips and professes her love, Kobayashi lectures her on how the maid outfit is the selling point – ending on a very frustrated Tohru letting out a defeated cry.
We then see a much-needed flashback to Ilulu’s childhood with the Chaos Dragon Clan. Our new antagonist was originally friendly to humans, often playing with them as a child, but her hatred for humans begins when her parents are brutally murdered – thus starting her ‘war path’.
Back in the modern world, Ilulu is confronted by a Dragon Slayer called Cremene and we finally see why Dragons aren’t safe living amongst humans.
Kobayashi arrives just in time to save Ilulu and give her a pep talk, but Cremene is too strong and it becomes obvious the pair are about to be destroyed.
After slapping Kobayashi, Cremene realises he has made a grave mistake…when Tohru shows up.
Obviously shocked at her being in this world, let alone with Kobayashi, Cremene begins to beg for his life – which Tohru spares but instead takes his horn.
The episode concludes back in the apartment, where Ilulu is adjusting to life with the group and claims that she now knows what she wants…to make a family with Kobayashi.
