Welcome back, doods! So, it seems that the victim…I mean, lucky contestant that you chose for me to follow is…wait a second. Not a single vote was cast, doods?! Er…I guess this means that the decision is mine to make. And in that case…I’m going with Captain Gordon
! Why? Well, honestly, it’s a bit of a hassle to go through everything I type and make his name bold for the sake of a running gag. The sooner we can cross him off our list of “people that we can use to stop Prince Laharl from blowing himself up”, the better.
Now, returning to where we left off, two thirds of the Netherworld Heroes are now vowing revenge against the evil [CENSORED] that gave them pudding instead of their fuel unit, AKA Mao
. Jennifer thinks it’s just one big mistake, but like her friends, wishes to find the delivery boy and straighten this mess out. Trying to remember what Mao looks like, Jennifer can definitely recall his youthful appearance, goofy glasses, and colourless hair. And just for good measure, Captain Gordon
throws in a Zero Wing Shout Out
as they split up to search for Mao.
Captain Gordon: Let’s divide and conquer, people! For great justice!
“Database: Glasses” has been added!
One hour later, Captain Gordon
is all by himself, and unable to find the guy they’re looking for. That’s about it for 14 o’clock, but as 15 o’clock rolls around, we make contact with Mao in the shop! Which, I should add, makes good sense; the only places we’ve seen Mao before are here and outside, and the only reason he was outside was due to Thursday’s now-averted rampage. This kinda makes me wonder where Flonne went to in this new timeline, dood…Oh, and I decide to possess the little Mad Scientist
with albino follicles, because I like the obsessive little bugger.
Anyways, Captain Gordon
poses with an extended fist, to show that he is indeed a Large Ham
! …I mean, hero! Captain Gordon
tells Mao to hold it, and our hero fanatic recognizes him at a glance. After stating that maybe coming here with Beryl wasn’t a waste after all…hold up! Raspberyl’s in this game, too? Oh, what a twist! What a shock! How could we have ever expected the Netherworld Academy’s #1 Delinquent to appear in this game?! …Other than reading the instruction manual or looking at the game’s cover, of course. Or looking at the credits during the last ending we got.
Back to the action, Captain Gordon’s
teeth glint at the thought that his fanbase is growing. Putting his rage aside, he asks if Mao wants an autograph. However, Mao’s in the mood for something a little bit more impressive…mainly, Captain Gordon’s
Captain Gordon (picturing himself on a bench outside of a Male-only bathroom): Wh, what’s wrong with you, boy? I could go to jail! Wait, no! I don’t play for that team!
Before Captain Gordon
can say anything else both disturbing and somewhat funny, Mao points out a cockroach by his foot. With a call of “Oven-Roasted Christ Crackers!” (a phrase so unique and unusual that it inspired this installment’s title), Captain Gordon
pulls out his gun and starts flailing wildly. He doesn’t get the chance to fire a single shot, though, as the tiny black dot representing the bug starts climbing up his body. Captain Gordon
jumps high enough to go off-screen out of fright, and Mao muses that he can take advantage of this weakness to catch him.
, still in the sky, aims his gun at the cockroach below…but there are two bright, blue, ominous objects in the background! The objects are soon revealed to be the eyes of a giant demon, who blasts Captain Gordon
with a screen-filling laser from its mouth! The 34th Defender of Earth is sent hurtling down into a red bag of some sort, and thus Mao’s kidnapping plan is complete, dood!
Cut to Mao’s room, seen in the very first few moments of Disgaea 3. Our Prinny-licious protagonist is still attached to Mao, who’s wondering what experiments he should do with his new material. Ghost Prinny wonders where he is, and moans that he wants to go home, apparently forgetting that he can turn back time to the meeting between the Netherworld Heroes. Cue credits, accompanied by this pic◊
, and Mao’s theme from Disgaea 3 (vocal version). Ladies and gentle-doods, we’ve already reached the second of the fourteen endings!
“Database: Mao’s Caught Specimens!” has been added!
“Database: Evil Academy” has been added!
And after the credits stop rolling (and the song is abruptly cut midway through its second loop), the following message pops up.
Saving Clear Data! With the clear data, you can continue from 13 hours of Ep. Settlement in the Throne Room, Possessing Jennifer. (Travelling to the past right after Laharl’s explostion)
So, viewers! Next time, it looks like our choices are between Thursday and Jennifer! Place your votes: should we possess the Robot Buddy
, or Ms Fanservice
? Please note, though, that I’ll probably switch away to someone else if it looks like we’re going to wind up at the Netherworld Academy again. And Database Entries! Our collection just keeps growing, so if there’s any you want to see, just say so!
Character No. 09 – Prinny
Peon characters that appear in various titles including the Disgaea series. The Prinny has become Nippon Ichi Software’s mascot character. The main character of this game is just one of many Prinnies. They’ve got a laid back personality. They say “dood” at the end of most of their sentences. Inside the penguin-like bodysuit is the soul of a human criminal. To pay off their sins, they work very hard. They are to reincarnate* after they save up enough money.
* On Reincarnation
Once a Prinny is ready to reincarnate, his sins are purified on the night the Red Moon rises. Death takes the souls, which leave sparkly trails in the sky. The view is mysterious, poetic maybe, but no one has seen it happen because it takes place late at night, so most demons are sleeping or goofing off.
