As an episode this one was very nearly coherent. It even shed some light on a least one aspect of the story. In terms of helping the rest of the mess make sense… Well there’s still more we don’t know than stuff we do. It also didn’t feel like they were adding in unnecessary additional complications this episode so at no point did I feel like this episode just threw me under a bus without helping me to understand who was even driving.
That doesn’t actually mean this was a good episode. We go from back story on Marie (guillotine girl) to her manifesting in Fuji’s bed so that the female childhood friend can play the cliché, before they go on a tour of the city, so we can get the usual still shots of tower, ferris wheel, roller coaster, etc.
And then we meet up with Fuji’s other friend who apparently disappeared earlier in the story and was the reason he started the show in the hospital (no details really as to why that situation came about) but he apparently knows what is going on and wants to help (though the motivation here is iffy at best). Then we go into another fight sequence for reasons.
Still, as I said at the start, in terms of coherence this episode was definitely an improvement. The series as a whole still confuses me but I felt I mostly followed that.
Thanks for reading.
