|Episode 8 - New Dragon, Elma! (She's Finally Appearing, Huh?)|
Tohru and Kobayashi have a competition to decide who gets to make Kanna's boxed lunch for a field trip, with Fafnir and Lucoa acting as the judges. Fafnir thinks it's disgusting that Tohru considers a human her equal.
Tohru cheated on the last round of the competition by using food from the other world... then immediately after that, a new dragon character Elma shows up and tries to take Tohru back home... I guess she followed Tohru here after she went to obtain that demon snack.
The last time Tohru and Elma fought each other, 3 islands disappeared.
Elma is from the faction of order/harmony, while Tohru is from the faction of destruction/chaos, that's why Elma gets all flustered and apologetic when Kobayashi points out that she's breaking the rules of this world by smashing through the building instead of knocking.
lmao, Elma is so easily tricked... Tohru opens a portal to an empty field where they can battle each other, and she closes it on Elma as soon as she steps through.
Then the next day she comes back, and Kobayashi gives her some delicious bread, and then Tohru is like "you can take the whole package if you leave"
Elma starts a new job at the same place Kobayashi works at, just by coincidence, because she needs to make a living while she's stuck in this world. She can't make portals like Tohru can, and is too honorable to mooch off people. Tohru starts to get jealous, and goes back to how she was in the first episode, overdoing all of her maid duties and desperately trying to get Kobayashi's praise. When Elma shows up to give Kobayashi a protective charm, Tohru snaps and blasts her away with fire breath.
Shouta keeps having dreams about soft, bouncy round things...
