Tsuritama 09 — Duck!

The greatest villains ever. 

So this episode was the calm before the storm, as Yuki and friends decide to trust Haru and go back to town. It was an excellent buildup. But it’s interesting to note that despite all of Tsuritama’s quirkiness, the story itself is fairly traditional. A group of friends form. They have challenges which threaten to tear their budding friendship apart, and they overcome the challenges and grow. A monster appears. They band together with the power of friendship and (presumably) defeat the monster. Not exactly a unique story.

But there’s nothing wrong with that. Tsuritama is telling the same story, but in a way that it’s never been told before.


Rubber suits, bunny ears, and hair dryers. Move along, move along, nothing to see here. This is reminding me of Ippatsu! Juden-chan (and no, I can’t believe I actually watched that either).

Tsuritama sure knows how to do metaphors! This one had me totally cracking up.

Duck’s only weakness seems to be their stomachs. Keito completely has them in the palm of her hand with her cooking. And Akira escapes because they eat curry.
