Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls Episode 6 Review – Quick Summary

In Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls Episode 6, “Species 6: Everyday Life of Molting and Laying Eggs,” Miia wanted to impress Darling-kun with her cooking skills. Unfortunately, she should have learned basic cooking skills first, because she ended up burning both of her hands. That meant she couldn’t handle molting on her own. Who can she turn to for help? Later, Papi had a problem: For the first time since coming to Japan, she felt like she was going to lay an egg. But a sleazy director showed up out of nowhere to film the event. Can the household protect Papi’s modesty? Or will they contribute to interspecies relations in a very niche way?

Note: This post may include spoilers, so be cautious.

Favorite Quote from Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls Episode 6

Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls Episode 6: When it comes to money, Agent Smith has no sense of humor.

Papi might be happy snuggling up against Darling-kin, but Agent Smith was anything but happy. Or snuggly. Capture from the Blu-ray.

Miia’s background scream (when she was describing why she could not cook or clean)tempted me as my favorite quote. But I’ve had several inarticulate noises as my favorite quotes lately, so I’ll pick something that has actual words.

Suu had just saved the women in the household from public embarrassment or worse. As Miia prepared dinner, they sat around the kitchen table and tried to decide what to do with Papi’s egg. Centorea wasn’t sure what they should do, and Mero expressed shock at the price the sleazy “director” thought he could get for it.

Darling-kun, always a practical man, asked Agent Smith (who had stopped by for free food) what she thought.

Disgruntled at the amount of yen being discussed, she snapped (20:29), “Don’t try to get a low-salary worker involved in this.”

I really can’t blame her. It sounds like she’s under-paid, even if she seems to be less than completely competent.

Best in Show Moment for Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls Episode 6

Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls Episode 6: Suu, Miia, Centorea, and Mero supported Papi in her time of need!

It was heart-warming to see the Monster Girls come together to support Papi. Capture from the Blu-ray.

Setup: Definitely Caw of Fame Material

This show really knows how to do sexy right, doesn’t it? I’m thinking in particular about the scene with Miia as Darling-kun helped her peel off her dead skin. The humor was spot on, too. But I will not pick that as my favorite moment, in part because Darling-kun ended up in a neck brace. And injury to the cervical spine is nothing to laugh at!

Well, it is here, because one of Darling-kun’s super powers is invincibility, if the Monster Girls are the source of the damage. But that’s ‌another post.

Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls Episode 6: It's a good thing Darling-kun is indestructible.

It’s a good thing Darling-kun has a robust constitution. Dude would be dead otherwise. And why the heck does Miia have a nail bat? Capture from the Blu-ray.

My favorite scene builds on a theme that helped earn this show a spot in the Caw of Fame. It’s what makes Darling-kun’s position almost enviable. I say “almost” because the amount of damage Darling-kun withstands is superhuman, and it’s what places this show in the “fantasy” category. Even more so than the Monster Girls themselves. 

A great example of that theme happened after Suu used her slime-powers to expose the “director” for what he really was. Darling-kun punched the guy’s lights out and confiscated his camera, thus protecting the dignity of the Monster Girls. But that left Papi still trying to lay her egg.

Delivery: Mutual Support is Awesome

When Darling-kun tried to help Papi, Miia wrapped her tail around his eyes and said he couldn’t watch. Apparently, getting rid of the “director” made Miia and the rest feel like they could assert themselves again, which was a good thing. And though I felt a little bad for Darling-kun, let’s face it: He really didn’t need to watch Papi lay an egg. 

Here’s what I thought was really cool: Miia, Centorea, and especially Mero, talked Papi through the experience (20:02)! Papi felt scared, because this was her first time laying an egg since she arrived in Japan. And the other Monster Girls were there for her. Suu even looked on in a vaguely supportive kind of way.

Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls Episode 6: Miia tires to cook a really large egg.

This episode had a lot of, let’s say interesting shots! Capture from the Blu-ray.

They’re rivals for Darling-kun’s affections, but they’re also becoming friends. It was such a warm vibe that I named this my favorite scene. And by the way, Miia’s attempts to show Lamaze breathing techniques were absolutely adorable!

What did you think of Miia’s approach to cooking? What were your favorite moments in this episode? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Isn’t found family wonderful? And despite the harem aspects, that’s what we’ve got here. Especially among the girls.
