Warning! Spoilers forward for Dandadan chapter 47!
A gaggle of ostensibly random characters who initially performed a minor function in some one-off aspect story simply got here again with a vengeance to assist one of many major protagonists in Dandadan combat towards a robust enemy.
Even earlier than their arrival, the battle they’d later be part of already massively diverged from the norm – if something in Dandadan may even be remotely thought of regular. The spirit medium Momo Ayase – who normally fights alongside her good friend Ken Takakura aka Okarun – is battling her Evil Eye Yokai-possessed former boyfriend Jiji with the unluckiest allies. The primary is a girl who initially tried sacrificing her to a large loss of life worm and the opposite is a random monk Momo met as soon as earlier than however who’s apparently her grandmother Seiko’s pupil. In the meantime, the Turbogranny-possessed Okarun is sadly out for the rely.
As victory turns into more and more unlikely, these random reinforcements abruptly arrive from a UFO that miraculously seems out of nowhere, descending amidst the fray in chapter 47 by mangaka Yukinobu Tatsu. First, the so-called Dover Demon jumps right down to aide within the combat earlier than Momo’s oddly sexual and lazy grandmother flies down on prime of an anthropomorphized anatomical mannequin named Taro. Prior to now, the Dover Demon and Taro have been believed to be nothing greater than minor characters who served as the principle focus of random aspect missions. The Dover Demon was initially a gig fighter and fought towards Momo and Okarun with the Serpo, an alien race that has been obsessive about stealing sure physique components from Momo and Okarun. The preliminary function of the demon’s introduction was principally as a method to offer a hilariously intelligent rationalization about why aliens are oftentimes portrayed in popular culture as cow-stealing robbers. Mainly, the heroes Momo and Okarun ultimately befriend their former enemy to assist him along with his son’s blood transfusion. And cow’s milk is the important thing.
In the meantime, Momo and Okarun’s previous dealings with Taro served as a method to offer an extremely distinctive tackle what constitutes a star-crossed lover – with the collection’ now proprietary supernatural twist. One human anatomical mannequin named Hana was in a dumpsite whereas the opposite (Taro) was sure to his faculty’s science classroom and will due to this fact solely go to her at evening. Collectively, Taro, Hana, and the Dover Demon signify every defining facet of Dandadan: the supernatural (yokai) and alien invasions. Though Dandadan is basically a string of ostensibly remoted incidents, each of the storylines that starred these specific characters initially felt particularly unrelated and created the impression that every of those cases was only a minor albeit extremely entertaining manner of world-building.
In the meantime, the addition of Momo’s grandmother Seiko simply serves as main fan service since she’s extremely sarcastic to a tremendous diploma. Till now, Seiko has by no means participated in any of the missions that she has assigned to her granddaughter (largely on account of how her energy manifests in relation to the place she lives). So, attending to see her combat will add extra to her already intriguing depiction. Along with making the continued battle way more entertaining in chapter 47, the inclusion of those initially minor and one-off characters shouldn’t be solely proving that earlier occasions that appeared fully random at first really aren’t however creating a bigger sense of togetherness and interconnectivity in Dandadan‘s very distinctive and extremely impressed world of yokai and aliens.
