Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon Episode 10 Review – “Troupe Dragon, On Stage! (They Had A Troupe Name, Huh)”

6 comments

A Christmas episode!

(Spoilers in this episode)

Tohru decides to help entertain some senior citizens because the person who was supposed to keep them amused hurt his leg. Kobayashi can’t help due to work, so it’s up to the dragons and the children to plan this out!

Elma suggests an all-you-can-eat event, Kanna recommends a running event, and Faf-kun brings up a gaming event. Riko, however, suggests that they all do a play and pushes for “The Matchstick Girl.” You know, the story about the girl who died in the snow while trying to sell matches.

Since the dragons think the story is boring, they decide to spice it up by introducing the legend of “Kasajizou” (from what I can tell, that’s a story about an old man selling hats), the 47 Ronin (where masterless samurai avenge their dead master), and a dragon. Faf-kun also advocates adding a magical girl into the story.

The play was chaotic yet entertaining. Kobayashi refrains from jumping in and stopping them from doing dangerous things like lighting an actual fire or using their magical abilities and is content to trust them. At least no one was hurt and the elderly were all entertained!

Everyone celebrates at Kobayashi’s house and then they all head home to celebrate at their own homes. Kobayashi and Tohru go for a nighttime ride and they exchange gifts. It even starts snowing! It’s a white Christmas!

A few minor things I wanted to talk about: Faf-kun and Lucoa talked about looking over Tohru and it really made think the two of them as parental figures for Tohru. Or maybe like older siblings. It’s nice that they care about her like that since Tohru is like an older sister to Kanna. What goes around comes around!

Elma’s character was exaggerated into being a glutton. It’s endearing to see a girl become so happy from eating, though. And at least she’s no longer just being comic relief and avoided being overshadowed by the other strong personalities (in my opinion).

…Did the signs surrounding Kanna’s makeshift chimney remind you of the kind of signs you’d see in a redlight district? Oh, dear.

All in all, it was a cute episode!

    1. It suits her too perfectly!

      Mmm it was but I just get the feeling that I wanted more than just that. I guess what I feel about Gabriel DropOut applies to Maidragon, too. I’m being unreasonable, I know.
