At last, Shamiko finally discovers the internet after not knowing what it is. Also, we learn more about Lilith as she borrows Shamiko’s body again.
I must admit, I can relate to Momo as she finally sets up internet for Ryoko to use to do summer homework on. Yep, my parents usually ask me to solve IT-related issues. Things such as setting up IT equipment and resolving computer and internet problems. With that, Momo sets up an internet router and parental controls.
I find it hilarious how Shamiko doesn’t know what the internet is. She also thinks that wifi signal is when Mr. Internet visit one’s house if one throws a party. Yep, Shamiko despite being young is like grandparents who don’t know what an internet is and computer illiterate. Then again, it’s not too surprising since her family can’t afford a computer or even internet for that matter.
As expected, Shamiko doesn’t understand what Momo is doing as she finished setting everything up. When Shamiko sees Mikan browse a social network like Twitter on her iPhone, she wants in on it too. After all, Momo might be on it. This might give Shamiko the chance to learn more about her.
When Shamiko tries to go on the internet with the laptop, Momo won’t let her. Not without some knowledge of dangers lurking on the internet. I find the presentation showing the dangers of the internet quite funny. Yep, Shamiko will be that kind of person who accidentally click the link to get information defeating magical girls. Afterwards, she will send money to some Nigerian Prince via Western Union or Bitcoin before a magical girl swat team come to her house. As they say, you shouldn’t believe everything that is on the internet.
Of course, Shamiko doesn’t know the other dangers lurking on the internet besides the Nigerian scam such as malware, ransomware, outdated software, phishing/social engineering attacks, and browsing the internet unprotected without using a VPN. Still, she is determined to create an account on a social network service so she can follow her beloved, Momo no matter what.
I find it funny how Shamiko reacts when the computer freezes, and she tries to find a solution in the computer manual. Yes, to try to bring up the task manager and close the app while having no idea what this does. I guess Momo should have given her an iPad, a Mac, or a Chromebook instead of a Windows PC. Either way, I find it funny how Shamiko resorts to her new wand to solve the issue, which transform into a hammer.
Somehow, Shamiko managed to create an account without breaking the computer. Believe it or not, her username makes it obvious who she is despite making the account private. I find it funny how she went next door and have her wand turning into a sign asking Momo for her social network handle. When Shamiko returns after Momo turns her down, she sees someone follow her. Ryoko seems amazed that her older sister is now entering the new frontier of social networks.
Yep, the follower is Momo and Shamiko asked why she followed her. Momo decided to follow Shamiko since she wants to know more before she trolled her. As expected, Shamiko yelled her famous catchphrase. Yep, Momo heard it given how thin the walls are. Also, Momo becomes frustrated that Momo and Mikan are getting along too much that she decides to turn off the internet at night.
In the second half, Momo wants to learn more about Lilith. After all, it can reveal more about what happened to her older sister. While Lilith declared that she doesn’t know, I find it funny how Momo takes most of the treats away. This is when Lilith reveals what happened when she got sealed away. She was unable to observe the outside world until about 10 years ago.
Shamiko wonders what is on Momo’s mind. Yep, she recalls how much she mistreated Lilith and kind of regrets it. Shamiko comes up with the idea, which Momo brings up the drill to take away the epoxy on the switch. Yep, Lilith passes out from the operation, but she survived somehow.
When she finally wakes up as Shamiko comes up with a plan with Momo to allow Lilith to borrow her body. As expected, this will happen with Momo’s supervision. With that, Lilith wants to dress for success and make it obvious that it’s her. Yep, she had Shamiko pick out a hip outfit for her.
However, Lilith has one problem. Shamiko doesn’t have any money. Yep, Lilith has Shamiko use the “buy now, pay later” option that Lilith thinks it’s free. It’s worse than using credit cards and paying it off in full. Every personal finance people will shutter at this since this is a trap. It’s more like “broke now, broke later.” Either way, Seiko is in a nasty surprise.
As for Lilith meeting Momo, I find her outfit choices stick out too much. Yep, she decides to wear a Gothic Lolita dress. I find it funny how the same dog that a lady walks by barks at Lilith. Of course, when Momo walks with Lilith, they ran into Shion, who is about to show a new creation to Shamiko. I find it funny how Shion looks at the tail and realizes it’s Lilith and decides to leave.
Eventually, Momo takes her to the same spa she took Lilith in the first episode. Yep, Lilith tries to make Momo pay for her entry fee, but she said no. Instead, Momo had Lilith do some physical exercises before they went into the bath. I guess this can be a good thing for Shamiko, although she will have muscle pain.
That is until the power went out and Lilith becomes scared. It’s obvious that after being sealed into the statue, she fears the dark. She eventually reveals how she learned how to use magic to bring light. That is when Momo shined light with her smart phone and play exercise videos. Either way, Lilith had a nice bath with Momo, although she finds out Momo’s battle scars. I can see why Momo uses her wand to change outfits. Either way, I guess we’ll find out the reason behind those eventually.
Either way, Momo and Shamiko heads homes. Shamiko finds Lilith’s fashion choices humiliating. It seems that Lilith’s views on Momo changed for the better. Of course, Lilith want one of those smartphone things, until Momo plays back the audio recording of Lilith being afraid of dark. Yep, Momo really has something to blackmail Lilith if she steps out of line now.
Of course, the “broke now, broke later” thing catches up to Lilith as Seiko finds out what she did. Yep, nothing is free and using “buy now, pay later” doesn’t make it such. I find it funny how she threatens Lilith of putting her on auction if she pulls this kind of thing again.
The moral of the story, never use “buy now, pay later.” Only buy things if you can afford to pay it off in full or finance it on a credit card with 0% financing and budget for it. Of course, the internet is a scary place and you could use a VPN.
