Well, we know from the title that this episode won’t resolve and for once I think that’s fantastic. I’ve been hoping for a longer arc with a bit more meat in it than the one episode stories we’ve received so far. This week Joker Game shows us what it has been best at all along, subtle story-telling. Even early on I picked up that something wasn’t quite right and when the reveal finally came it just fit beautifully. That said, I hadn’t picked what the reveal was going to be. Foreshadowing without giving the game away. That alone made this episode well worth the watch.
I’d like to say more about this episode but I don’t want to spoil it so I’ll just leave it there. I did tweet my thoughts while watching and I can kind of pinpoint the moment in the episode where I figured something was up. Also tried to avoid spoilers though for people who haven’t watched it yet.
Joker Game is available on Crunchyroll.
