So now that most of the back story is explained it’s time to get into the real plot which is finding the fake student, the dead which was invited into the classroom.
The librarian is now one of my favorite character. I hope he doesn’t die because he is the bridge between the viewer and the huge mysteries. He did a good job explaining a lot of stuff this episode which I was grateful for.
The other thing that this episode had stacks of was the whole Mei x Kōichi relationship. At this point it seems Mei just likes having someone to talk to but I can see this relationship developing into some bad romance later on. I really hope it doesn’t.
I was starting to think we might go a whole episode without a death but then the teacher went crazy and either kills himself or someone else judging by the preview. If he did off someone else it’s going to be the frail art boy. That kid has no idea how to ignore someone.
I’d also like to touch on Kōichi family, his dad is cool but the rest of the family makes me cringe every time they talk. His grandfather was interesting to start with but the way he kept mentioning his dead daughter of 15 years made me want to punch him. Then there is Reiko, Kōichi aunt. She pisses me off so much. She pretends not to know details about the school then she apologizes. Stupidly by not telling him she might get herself killed. She is the only character I would actually like to see die at this point.
I’m looking forward to where this anime will go in future episodes. I hope the dead extra student shows up soon.
