"Umaru and Ebina-chan (Umaru and Ebina)" (うまると海老名ちゃん Umaru to Ebina-chan) is the second episode of the Himouto! Umaru-chan anime. It was produced by Doga Kobo.
Late at night, Taihei is seen returning home from work, exhausted and VERY GRIM over the things Umaru will make him do as soon as he gets inside (unaware that the WORST is waiting for him in this episode). However, much to Taihei's shock, upon entering the house he is happily greeted by Umaru in her "outside" persona. After a few questions, Taihei learns that Ebina is visiting and Umaru warns him not to mention anything about her secret life to Ebina.When Taihei enters the main room, he is even MORE shocked to see that Umaru has cleaned it and removed
Sunday morning, Umaru is up playing online games after an all-nighter. Tired, she complains how no one is ever on so early in the morning and that she has nothing to do until the Sunday morning anime block. As she drinks her "morning cola", she notices Taihei sleeping peacefully and wonders if he looks so happy due to the fact that he's been coming home from work looking like a zombie. Umaru notes that it's his first day off in awhile, but decides to wake him up anyway and screams at him that it's time for work. Taihei then screeches and wakes up, glaring at Umaru.
Awhile after, Umaru and Ebina walk to school and are handed a flier for a big rock-paper-scissors contest, with the winning prize being a huge, long cat-shaped body pillow called a "Necolumbus", which the girls find very cute. As usual, Umaru is unable to contain her excitement. That night, she excitedly runs up to Taihei with the flier, calling it an "emergency", and jumps on his face. The day of the contest, Umaru becomes UMR and shows Taihei what the "emergency" was by showing him the flier, telling him that she really needs the Necolumbus pillow. Taihei angrily tells her that he turned down a weekend shift for something so ridiculous. Umaru lies to him that she wanted to help him relax, and that she wanted to play with him, right before running off to the event's second
Another morning, Ebina waits outside the apartment building for Umaru to walk to school. As she waits, Ebina remembers being with her family a year ago in Akita and discussing her soon to come move to Tokyo. Her parents try to convince her not to go and live in Tokyo, but Ebina states that she wants to go to school there. Later, Ebina sits on the plane to Tokyo and worries about the things her parents told her, thinking that people will call her a country bumpkin and that she is a careless sort, but she continues to tell herself she'll be okay. Ebina then looks around and notices that many people are staring at her, but tries to convince herself that she is only imagining it. At the Tokyo airport, she tries to change her accent, and again notices people staring at her and tries to figure out why until she hears someone comment that she has a very large
- The girls want to win the Necolumbus pillow because it looks cute, but no other reason is given; apparently Umaru needs it so she can sleep all the time.
- Taihei could have easily gotten into trouble for quitting work just to participate in the contest, had his boss/coworkers found out.
- This and the previous episode depict Umaru as utterly self-centered and not caring about others, including her own brother (only using him to get whatever she wants) until the very end of this episode, when she goes to school with Ebina.
- During the restaurant segment, Ebina accidentally uses her Akita accent as she delightfully comments on the food.
- Umaru shows her new game to Ebina, even though she's supposed to keep her otaku life a secret.
Taihei: "Work was exhausting today, but it gets even worse from here..." Umaru (in his thoughts): "Hey there, Onii-chan. Make me dinner now!"
Taihei: "Ebina, you can come over anytime."
Taihei (thinking): "With Ebina around, Umaru can be more independent!"
Umaru (thinking): "I need my cola..."
Umaru: "I needed my cola after holding back so long! THE TASTE OF THE DEVIL!"
Umaru: "Hey, Onii-chan, these are wasabi-flavored chips! Umaru hates wasabi!"
Taihei: "DAMN YOU, UMARU!!!!!!!!!"
Umaru: "What!? Now you're mad at me!?"
Ebina: "Onii-san... I knew it... Umaru's brother is so nice! Onii-san!!!!!!!! (screaming)"
Umaru: "Why are you so mad at me, Onii-chan?"
Taihei: "WHY WOULDN'T I BE!?"
On Taihei's day off:
Umaru (thinking): "BUT I'M STILL WAKING HIM UP!"
Umaru (goes into her outside mode and pretends to sleep; inside mode thinking): "My poor Onii-chan will never sleep as long as Umaru's wearing her outside face. Now Onii-chan HAS to play with Umaru! Now, surrender, Onii-chan!" (reverts to her inside mode and starts falling asleep)
Umaru (crying): "WHY ARE YOU ASLEEP TOO, ONII-CHAN?! NOW I'VE MISSED MY MORNING AND AFTERNOON ANIME!!!!!!!!!" Taihei: "Wait, why am I to blame?!"
When Umaru makes Taihei miss work to help her win a Necolumbus:
Umaru: "Onii-chan, it's an emergency!" (runs to Taihei with the flyer, then jumps on his face)
Taihei: "W-What is it this time?!"
The day of the contest:
Taihei: "Umaru, don't tell me the emergency is..."
Umaru (as UMR): "Yes! I need it right now!"
Taihei: "Why would you call this an emergency?! You made me turn down a weekend shift for THIS?!"
Umaru: "Now, now, Onii-chan, you need to relax every now and then."
Taihei: "Why would I even want this? Just go by yourself."
Umaru: "Uh... What makes you say that? Umaru... just wanted to play with you, Onii-chan. Onii-chan, you must be exhausted after working so hard lately. You'll never relax if I don't do something like this..."
Taihei (thinking): "Right. I've been so focused on my work lately that I haven't made time for Umaru. (out loud): Okay, I guess some weekends are meant for rest! I'll have you know, I'm very good at rock-paper-scissors!"
Umaru: "Thank you, Onii-chan."
Taihei (having to wait in a long line, thinking): "D-Damn that selfish brat... (Umaru: "Okay, Umaru's going to the other spot. Please take care of this one, okay?" (walks away)) Not only did she drag me here to increase her chances, but she actually went to a different spot! (Umaru: "I jut wanted to play with you, Onii-chan.") She made me miss work for a chance of probably winning two of those things!" (Indoor Umaru removes her facade, chuckling guiltily)
During the contest
Taihei (thinking): "W-What in the world am I even DOING?!"
After the contest:
Ebina: "Onii-san, you're really good at rock-paper-scissors."
Taihei: "Yeah. I've heard that, psychologically, you can win with either paper or rock."
Taihei (thinking): "Ebina-chan must've really wanted this. If I keep this, it might ruin her friendship with Umaru. What if they don't talk to each other again?"
Taihei (to Ebina): "You're the one who wanted this too, right? I'm sure it'll be happier with you."
(Ebina accepts the prize, then leaves; an angry Umaru appears behind Taihei, pouting)
Taihei: "Umaru, w-when did you..."
Umaru (throwing a selfish tantrum): "EVER SINCE YOUR SPOT! UMARU LOST EARLY ON, SO SHE RETURNED TO THE NORTH ENTRANCE! WHY DID YOU GIVE IT TO EBINA-CHAN?! WHAT IS UP WITH THAT?! (starts pummeling Taihei) YOU FOUR-EYED CORPORATE SLAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Taihei: "I-I did it for you!" Umaru: "YOU DIDN'T DO IT FOR UMARU IT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Taihei: "S-STOP THAT!!!!!!!!!"
Ebina (happily snuggling the Necolumbus): "O-Onii-san is... so very nice!"
After Umaru gets her own Necolumbus:
Taihei (narrating): "In the end, she got the Necolumbus via net auction... (Umaru: "I'm so glad you're here, Necolumbus!") ...WITH MY MONEY."
After the commercial:
Umaru: "Onii-chan, buy me Last Fantasy XV!" Taihei: "No, I bought you Wyvern Quest a few days ago."
Taihei: "Listen, Umaru, we're only going for groceries, so no game for you."
Umaru (outside form; sparkles in her eyes): "I know, Onii-chan."
Taihei: "So what's with that look?"
Umaru (chuckling and thinking): "Onii-chan is weak against pressure, so if I throw a tantrum in public, he'll buy me the game."
Taihei (thinking): "Even if she throws a tantrum in public, I must not buy it for her."
At a restaurant:
Taihei (thinking): "She'll never cry for the game in front of Ebina. You need to learn self-control."
Umaru (thinking): "I hate you, Onii-chan, for doing something like this... I'll never throw a tantrum with Ebina around..."
Umaru (after shrinking to her inside mode): "MUSHAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!! (pummeling Taihei again) ONII-CHAN, YOU IGNORANT FOUR-EYED IDIOT, HURRY UP AND BUY ME THAT GAME! (jumps on Taihei's face and cries) BUY IT!!!!!!!!!" Taihei: "Let me go!" Umaru (still crying): "BUY IT! BUY IT! BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT! ONII-CHAN, HURRY UP AND BUY IT FOR ME!" Taihei: "I SAID NO!" Umaru (screaming and crying): "GAME! GAME! GAME! GAME! GAME! GAME! GAME! GAME! GAME! GAME! GAME! GAME! GAME! GAME!" Taihei: "Do you really want to do this? Ebina-chan's still here..." (Umaru pauses and returns to her outside mode)
Ebina (using her Akita accent): "Restaurants around this city are so gosh-darn good!"
