Annotated Anime: Oshiete! Galko-chan episode 9


Ojou wants to join in

I wonder what we will learn today.

This week's Galko-chan is lite on learning. The show kicks off with Galko refusing to open her mouth for reasons that are explored throughout the episode but boil down to; she still has a mindset of a child. Otako is able to weasel this out of her eventually leading to the next segment about Ojou. Ojou is a character that is largely left to the background, faithfully playing second fiddle to Otako's schemes. I really like her character design and her supporting role is fantastic when we see her doing bizarre things in the background. However, I feel that we never get enough out of her every episode leaving her whole persona something to be desired. 

Fortunately, she takes a larger role in this episode as wanting to be more like Otako. Her big moment comes as she explains to the girls why the inside of a Vagina is always pink regardless of skin colour or race. I'm not sure why she went straight to the genital area when the same is true for the entire digestive system from the mouth to the anus but I think it's because Otako dives for the explicit topics. 

The final part of this episode is another Galko being childish bit. She gets scared because Otako says something mildly disturbing and Otako has to put things right before the episode is over. Rinse and repeat. Overall this episode is one of the weaker ones in the series. It didn't provide a lot of information and it mainly focussed on Galko being immature despite her mature appearance and sometimes mature personality. We did get some good visuals including Galko's sister as a high schooler, Galko as a Middle Schooler, and Ojou having more screen time. 

Things I learnt from watching Galko-chan

  • Ojou's smug look is amazing
  • We cannot trust everything Otako says is true
  • It could be possible that when losing weight your boobs go first because it's made of different fat.... possibly. They never really clarify it.
