We’re so close to the end now and I have to say, this show has becoming surprisingly great to watch in its final arc. I’m actually thinking this story would have worked much better as a binge because all that set up wouldn’t have taken months, but hours and I’d probably have tolerated it better. However, that’s hindsight for you and it isn’t as though I can go back and tell myself just to wait until this finishes airing.
Kei is getting the gang together and then faces off with Urachi in a last ditch effort to save Sakurada from having memories of powers removed. It is odd because I don’t want Urachi to win but Kei’s overall motivation is pretty flimsy. He likes the town and the powers. That seems like a really weak motivator for attempting to defy a government agency, reverse time, and now kidnapping.
Still, Urachi is entirely self-motivated and really hasn’t thought about anyone outside of himself so I wouldn’t want to see him come out on top. It is also good to see Kei relying on the others to keep his plan, whatever it is, moving even if he does seem to be using his ‘friends’ like chess pieces in this match.
From the looks, this show has two episodes left and I’m really hoping it can end on the high it seems to be heading for and doesn’t manage to fall apart by trying to be overly clever at the end. If it can do that, than this has the potential to be one of my favourite shows of the year despite how irritating I found a lot of the first half. Of course, that is ‘if it can do that’.
Thanks for reading.
