A normal girl named Yoshida Yuko had a strange dream of a demon woman trying to wake her up. When she woke up, she sees demon horns and a tail after looking at herself in a mirror.
While we don’t know who is the demon looking woman who is in Yuko’s dream, it’s obvious that something happened. Yuko’s demon powers are now awakened. I find it funny how Yuko freaks out when she sees horns on her head and a tail.
It’s quite funny how their mother, Seiko told what happened. They are actually a demon family descendent and not normal humans at all. The light family sealed their powers, which is why they appear as humans. To make matters worse, they are inflicted with a 40,000 yen a month living curse. This can explain why they hardly have any food and live in a run-down apartment. Yuko apparently broke the seal that is on her powers.
To break this curse, Yuko needs to defeat a magical girl and offer her blood to the ancestor statue. I find it hilarious how Seiko used the statue as a door stop and nobody realized it until now. Still, it’s funny how Seiko decides on Yuko’s name for the registry. She picks the name of “Shadow Mistress Yuko” without her daughter’s input. The funny thing about this name is that later on, Yuko’s friend, Sada Anri and the pink haired girl starts referring Yuko as Shamiko (シャミ子). Of course, Yuko doesn’t take this well initially as we see later on.
While walking to somewhere, Yuko accidentally trips on a flower-pot and the ancestor statue fell down the stairs and on the street. As Yuko manages to rescue it, a dump truck came at her. This is until a magical girl named Chiyoda Momo came to rescue her. Not only that, Momo’s magical girl transformation is a nice touch in comparison to the manga.
At last, Yuko finally found her target. Still, the funny thing is that Momo doesn’t treat Yuko as a threat, but pities her. She ends up giving Yuko a bun after hearing her stomach noise. It’s funny how Yuko thanks Momo for saving her while annoyed at the same time as she flees.
The next day, Yuko finally goes to school and her friends finally sees her horn and tail for the first time. It’s hilarious how Anri tries to put her book bag on one of Yuko’s horns, but it’s deemed too heavy. This is a first indication that Yuko isn’t strong at all despite having her demon powers.
As for Yuko confronting Momo, it was funny. Momo eventually points out that she saw Yuko a day before. She also points out how short Yuko is. Yuko didn’t take the height thing and the nickname Momo came up with well.
Besides that, Anri encourages Yuko to fight Momo. It’s funny how Momo decides not to dodge Yuko’s attack. I guess she realized that Yuko’s attack is so weak that it’s not worth dodging them. The ironic thing is that Momo teaches Yuko how to punch properly. On the other hand, Yuko thought that she was done for. With that, she apologizes to her abruptly. Even with that, it’s still pretty weak.
I guess Yuko needs a lot of training before she can fight a magical girl. From the looks of it, she will be getting that next time. I wonder how Yuko is going to train with those dumbbells. On the other hand, I expect that Momo on the other hand will lift something like 200 lb. weights without any issue. Either way, the next episode should be fun. ¶
