Bad Guys are Good guys
Boring Charas are Actually Badasses
Limbs are flying…
Heads are rolling
And people are getting DELETED!!!!
What a way to end an episode dear Animators, what a despicable way! It’s like they are going out of their way to squeeze as much despair from us viewers as possible. In fact I won’t be surprised if they crank it up to 11 next episode still. Jesus people, give us a break here. There is like, only two episodes left and even if you give us a happy last 4 minutes, I doubt they will make up for all the despair that’s happening throughout the series.
I think I made a mistake in revisiting the OVA right before writing up this post because it increased the time I needed to get the thing done. As to why, it’s because my spirits being shattered after watching episode 6, lurking in my dark corner until I was right again to face the world, then watching the OVA and seeing Mato and Yomi so happy. I almost got my spirit back but then I had to re-watch the 6th episode to collect caps and I was once again in a slump. I swear seeing the TV and the OVA, apart from the characters, not even that at this stage, they are two completely different dimensions. So if anyone wants their souls back by the end of the TV, go watch the OVA. It will be very good for you. I promise you.
Interestingly, I had a dream about BRS last night. As with many other dreams, it didn’t make much sense but it was clear enough for me to remember bits of it. Mato was back in the real world but things weren’t back to normal. Yomi still didn’t remember her and Mato was as miserable because of this as expected. The Ether world also might have merged with the real world somehow because Mato could ‘transform’ into BRs to fight monsters from the Ether world that had somehow made it into the real world.
For some reason, though it might be because that was her first time, which I doubt, Mato didn’t change into BRS right away and it took her despair building up as she thought about Yomi that she began, in instances to change into BRS. First she turned super Mato, then a kind of mirage with BRS’s silhouette surrounding her with a pale bluish glow. Finally, she turned full BRS Mato. She visited Yomi’s home often and in fact they seemed to get on better than before, well, Mato and Yomi’s Mom that is, because Mato could take baths in their house and all that. while Yomi was like a stranger to the two.
Yomi didn’t seem to remember many things, in fact not quite her mother as well who seemed to be hiding things from Yomi, well not hiding but not being able to answer the many questions Yomi had. Despite not having memories about anything, Yomi seemed very much interested in Mato as she seemed to stalk her whenever she could, like glancing into said showers and all that. She was probably feeling a need to know this girl who had taken it upon herself to stick close to Yomi whenever possible.
And here endeth the dream.
Not much sense, I know but it made be question the ending of the TV series. Will they leave Yomi with amnesia like that as Mato tries to build new ones with her? I don’t know and I am not too sure I like it either.
Anyway let’s moving on to the episode.
