This week we learn about Kirie and her particular brand of immortality (though I’m going to call this one a cheat because she isn’t immortal – she’s just able to avoid death through time travel, though I wonder if she’s actually as young as she looks or if there is something else going on). Anyway, we learn about a guy named Fate something-or-other and that he is after Tota so after many resets Kirie manages to convince Tota to follow her plan and they all get ready to capture Fate. And it goes about as well as expected even though we haven’t actually seen the outcome yet it is more or less a given that this is all going to go to hell very quickly.
Tota is an idiot. That has been clearly and repeatedly established, though he’s the kind of idiot that isn’t overly annoying so we’ll just move on. There is however a clear difference between being an idiot and being incompetent and if you ask me the label of incompetent belongs to the time traveller who gets herself killed nine times before she even manages to execute a plan, and to be honest the plan is pretty rubbish even before we find out why it isn’t going to work. It was never going to work.
So basically this episode is set up and laying ground work for a fight that may or may not be over quickly next week. My money is may not because as much as it looks like Tota and the group should be toast, they’ll probably surprise us with some resistance and maybe they’ll even get to run away. I’m betting on them getting a severe beating and Tota being taken though. Better plot progression if that happens.
The question then becomes why on earth would anyone want to kidnap Tota. The guy is an idiot. An immortal, part vampire, possessing some bizarre power… but still an idiot.
