Sagrada Reset Episode 21: Decisions and Consequences



There’s a real sense of tension in this episode and it is a feeling that has been lacking from the majority of the season. Suddenly it feels very real that Kei might lose because for once resetting is not going to solve the problem and the witch has run out of tricks to help him. That said, Kei has always found a way before even if his methods are questionable. He was described by Urachi this episode as ‘insane’ rather than ‘honest’ and I have to say that some of his earlier action probably support that analysis of his character.


Soma has given her last hint to Kei and is now trying to not be a liability. This leads to her nearly taking her own life, which of course leads us back to the question of the swampman and whether or not this current Soma is actually Soma or just some program Soma set in motion. It’s interesting because there is no answer and ultimately you are just looping through rationalisation which has kind of been the reason I stuck this show out. It makes me think things through but doesn’t simply drop an answer on your lap if you wait long enough.  That said, it hasn’t made individual episodes any more exciting to watch, but suddenly all of the characters have come together and are choosing a side. Will Sakurada still have people who can use abilities in a few days time or not?


It seems that Kei came to some sort of decision by the end of this episode but as usual he hasn’t bothered to let anyone else in on his thoughts so the audience are pretty much in the dark. Though Urachi did make me really curious about what he has written in his notebook.

Sagrada Reset Episode 1



In a town where a lot of people have strange abilities one girl is able to reset the world up to three days. This is fairly pointless until she meets the boy who can perfectly recall memory.


Really hoping this isn’t forewarning that there is no story here.

I’m not certain where this is going or if there is an overall plot, but for a first episode this was intriguing. Definitely slow, and really quiet. That was one thing I continually noticed throughout the episode was the absence of sound which made the few moments of background noise (whether it be wind or cicadas) really stand out.  The characters are a little robotic in their mannerisms (though it seems like a deliberate choice) but so far this has managed to make me very curious. Possibly that will turn to boredom but I’m kind of hoping this can remain interesting as there’s certainly enough possibilities floating about and the discussions about choices and morality, while heavy handed, are so far pretty interesting.
