I am stunned. I went into this expect this to be a good episode but what I got was more then that. It was amazing.
Okay sure there was so tacky reasons for murder but the pacing and intnesity of the entire episode was brilliant. Things just kept happening at a pace unnatural for most anime. Events directed to other events nicely and there was never a dull moment.
All the main characters really proved themselves this episode. Kōichi for starters was badass. Until now he was a bland protagonist but this episode he punched a guy in the face, kneed an armed girl in the chest and took a kick to the croutch like a boss. Plus to top it all off he got stabbed and could still stand. I love this character now.
Mochizuki was the other character that impressed me. He is usually frail and wimpy so what he did this episode was unexpected. He tackles that deranged women who I suspect was one of the people that worked at the inn and sent her flying. There was the one scene where he was dragging Teshigawara away from her which was just perfectly executed. I know I’m gushing but I can’t help it. After watching all the crappy anime this season when I’m given a scene where a wimpy kid is dragging his injured best friend away from a deranged murderer I can help but smile and say to myself. “This is why I watch anime.”
Okay enough of the gushing. So Teshigawara pushed my prime suspect Kazami off the ledge and injured him. By the fact that he wasn’t there later proves he could still be alive. I’m not really sure who could be the dead person now. Hopefully it’s not Mei is the only thing I’m going to say.
Is it bad when I laugh at the psychos dying? I laughed at the pose that girl ended up in when she fell from the window and I had wide smirk when the other girl hung herself. They totally deserve it plus it’s good for entertainment purposes.
