I WON’T BELIEVE IN THAT CRAP!
or whatever till I say otherwise. Fallen wolves? Red butterflies? There’s a logical explanation for this! Awesome episode was awesome. You know what makes this episode better than the others? Proven fact: It’s the lack of Isuzu in this one for me. Nemuru opens the window like she’s letting out all the crappiness that partly filled the past episodes and welcomes the better stuff. I applaud her for this.
Hiroshi is still failing as a man. It’s a sad and futile sight trying to act any manlier. The sailor fukku that Hiroshi has on doesn’t actually help him per se. Who the hell designs those outfits? This is like an alternative version of the Siesta Sisters’ clothes minus the greatness.
That must be some fruit. Symbolism in R07’s work is always crucial even though I don’t always pick up on everything. Trick question while we’re here. Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable? *Check*
‘I’m not like that’ and then says ‘1h or 30m’. Talk about contradictions here and not matching your actions Shouldn’t Hiroshi YELL or something? He’s just standing there like a moron waiting to get molested. Like I said before, he is too fucking passive. He could even get molested by anyone from the Hanamaru Kindergarten cast.
Isuzu had to step in (she was very close apparently) and she finally does something not related to her clingy and save Hiroshi’s virginity once again. Stuff like this makes Isuzu a likeable character for a few moments, I just hope she keeps doing that. This clingy/terribly nice girl deal isn’t working so well as intended. Tired, Issei? Oh, sure, tell that to the judge.
Here I thought it was in my head.. Simply by the level of terrible obviousness.. this level of reasoning is possible. What do you think, everyone? Hiroshi still thinks that Issei is only ‘weird’ I think that in other parts of the world they have a term for that type. The worst thing is that he hasn’t mentioned anything to anyone else. He should at least carry something to protect himself if he really isn’t planning on telling. I say it’s time to get a sudden interest in baseball, man.
Now THIS is what I’m talking about! Notice the creepiness around the whole scene? The sound and all that. Hiroshi notices that someone was checking him out through the window. We don’t know who that person is and we don’t know why he/she did it. We don’t know exactly if it’s that relevant but uncertainty is being created. Hiroshi acting like everything is normal in front of Mana but he knows deep down that his peaceful days will soon be over. More to the point we want them to be over.
What a nice group of old friendly people. WRONG. This equation of seemingly old people is = enraged deranged religious fanatics. White wolf? It’s that code name for the local evil deity? I welcome this event with great expectation.
Kinda looks like Sanae version of R07, wait, I think we already had a yangire version of that. 07th Expansion has stripped me from many things throughout the years, one of them being the sense of security in any of their works and also part of my sanity. Sometimes it’s like paranoia level 5 around here when I hear the cicadas cry. Last time they introduced a gentle loving character in the When They Cry series it left me a sour aftertaste when she turned bad. No, I am not being vague ->
Ah, the family is still alive. That’s unusual in anime in general. Are these parents at least going to be normal? Or sane for that matter? The Ushiromiya set the bar very high. The ‘you don’t have to worry because you’re our children’ isn’t very reassuring to say the least. I fail to see the logic there.
Huge revelation. So Issei actually can’t control himself no matter whom we’re talking about. On other news, Issei is graduating from homo lust molesting predator to just molester in general. I see we’re making progress with him little by little. Is that a good thing?
In all seriousness, it’s now clear that this really isn’t something he wants (we can see him struggling) and it’s probably some sort of disease probably generated in the very village, fallen wolves and all that that triggers the animal instincts on people. There’s our theory for the time being. Of course, no actual prosecutor or the jury would buy this.
I KNEW IT! Didn’t I tell you to stop doing this!? Listen to the serious music. That expression. She’s hiding something. Do all the female population in these stories either get killed or go insane? Not that I’m objecting to the later.
But Mana would. Hirohi leaves her physically handicapped little sister in the middle of the street to go fetch her witch hat. He seems enthusiastic. Hmmn, not that I blame him for it. At least his voice changed into a more manly one for a moment there. Ironic. Considering who is voicing him.
This is what the shows needs: introduction of more characters we don’t know much about him. I don’t know who this guy is, wait, I think I do. It’s that guy from past episodes that only gets a few seconds at the end and it’s all flashbacks. He’s acting all weird and whatnot, more importantly it makes me want to know who he is and what his goals are. Isn’t it weird that Kaori looks similar to her dead girlfriend? Wouldn’t it be totally weird to think that it’s possible for them to ‘reincarnate’ or be ‘cleanse’ and have their memories erased and by that I mean being forced to not act in the same way they did before rather than having them killed or something crazy like that? I don’t have faith in that claim though.
Rather bold words from the cornered prey. Why do I get the feeling she sounded terribly personal like she knew who her killer was? Surely you won’t ask your killer such questions unless you know or heard of her/him before. Friend? relative? And why does everyone seem to think this girl and Nemuru are the same? Also notice how the supposed ‘killer’ is the only one carrying a scythe.
I see these guys are borrowing Beato’s fireflies. Hiroshi ‘sees’ the mysterious girl kill her victim then runs away in terror. Illusion of the, uh, Wolf, I don’t allow you to exist. t’s worth mentioning that none of the followers chase after him! Isn’t that weird? I’d figure they would notice him seeing that he made so much NOISE. Either they’re ignoring him or.. There is perfect explanation for this, of course. Oh, I just noticed that the scythe has two oranges on it..
Silly Hiroshi. The last thing I’d use in these type of shows is the telephone, either it’s not working or you get massively trolled by the person on the other line. Why aren’t any police men on that post though? They, like many, villagers could be in on it of course. Here’s a more terrifying idea. The very local police is under the control of whoever is pulling the strings here. Have all the murders been reported? I don’t think so.
The phone not working was either never meant to work or Hiroshi is already having delusions. Couldn’t he come to this very place the next day to check whether the police is there or not? Maybe ask around without being too obvious?
I will not allow you to exist. There must be a logical explanation to all of this.
This guy is so relax is scary. He believes Hiroshi’s story because he also ‘witnessed’ the group of ‘people’ murder his girlfriend or did he? What we see after this is doubtful. This murder is full of holes. That is no good, Wolf culprit.
It’s not mandatory for the rest of the followers to necessary ‘exist’ even more when the only one who deals the judgment is the leader of the group.
It’s perfectly possible for a single person to be able to murder someone even more when the other person is defenseless. It’s without a doubt possible when the killer is carrying a weapon. Based on this reasoning it could be the work of ONE killer.
Moreover, the fact that out of so many not a single one in the group noticed Hiroshi is shocking. This shakes the foundation that the event even happened!
The fact that there was no body to be found contradicts the claim that the woman was killed in that very spot in the first place. The hair pin found at the scene is the only reason why it’s plausible to believe that someone was at least badly hurt BUT it doesn’t guarantee the person was indeed killed. No corpse, no dead body.
Based on the amount of blood that there should be at the crime scene it would be very obvious that a crime indeed took place, however, the shocking non-existent/lack of blood allows to further theorize that the crime was NOT committed in the exact way Hiroshi witnessed it. It’s s possible he just freaked out and witnessed something different to what he thought he did. The fact that he was the only one who believed he was being spied on earlier while he was driving Mana already indicated he was being PARANOID since that moment. In conclusion, Hiroshi’s state of mind can now be put under QUESTION since although the murder could have been committed, it not necessarily have taken in the same place or time Hiroshi believes it did!
Great episode. I declare the following with certainty: Ookami Kakushi is definitely getting better.
