This episode brings another misunderstanding for Azatosians who ask Liza to get back on the ship for reporting and lend her a cyborg creation technology that copies Yozora and turns it into a real-life mecha.
The Cat’s Trick
As usual, the funniest thing in this series is the misunderstanding and the unknowns of the aliens about Earth and its animals. This time, the moment that probably became a thing inside the head of most viewers is actually happening! Liza must return to the ship and report her mission on Earth with a bit of suspicion from her people.
It’s funny to see the different kinds of reactions from Liza’s fellow researchers regarding cats and how they look or act. Some of them think Liza is brainwashed by cats and the creature is harmful, but some others (or probably all of them) eventually fall in love with just the silhouette or image of the creature.
Childhood Friends Turn Into Colleagues
A nice little touch given in this episode is a bit of a flashback about Amato and Liza who turn out to have known each other since they were kids. They hung out together and kept the same dream to see the vast universe, and here they are doing their “sacred” mission to observe and learn the contents of the galaxy.
Terminator But It’s a Cat
The later part of the episode is another proof of how unimaginable this series could be since it brings a robot Yozora that becomes uncontrollably too smart and advanced that even has its own feelings and thoughts.
This kind of trope and storyline can be found in action or apocalyptic-themed fiction. But here, it shows that even a simple comedy and sci-fi story like Too Cute Crisis can use that concept and implement it as fun as possible, especially with the combination of petting.
Too Cute Crisis keeps giving fresh unpredictable scenarios in every episode, and so far all of them have been amusing and interesting. We might want to see more of the Azatosian Empire people to be involved in the story, and there is a possibility that the climax of this series will focus on the discovery of cats by Amato and the others. When that happens, you know how messy things will be.
