IsaacMiria MarcoAi romance ಥ_ಥ
What sort of asshole parent would abandon a girl as cute as Ai.
Damn, there ought to be a spinoff where Ai is taken in by a kindly relative who is actually biologically her nephew and they discover the wonders of being a family together before she inexplicably falls in love with him after the timeleap and they find out that Ai’s actually not a blood relation and they decide to get married.
Shota-Loli romance? It’s like I’m watching Kādokyaputā Sakura all over again.
Doesn’t anybody notice the woman with a head that takes up half her body mass going around and taking children away?
Notice how the situation would be entirely different if 8th was a man. All he’d need to do is exhale in the general direction of a shota/loli and the police would be on him like police on donuts (or onigiri? What do Nihon Keisatsu snack on anyway?).
Holy crap, now they could be in a Clannad sidestory. Ai in sērāfuku <3
JUST LOOK AT HOW ADORABLE THEY ARE TOGETHER
When exactly was the last time school interactions were actually depicted realistically in anime? I don’t watch much high school anime, but the two that spring to mind are Amagami SS (the Tsukasa arc) and this season’s NichiBros (well the overreaction to girlfriends was rather realistic).
So more realism can be found in harem, comedy, and psychological/supernatural/horror/mystery; than in romance or slice-of-life. That sounds about right, doesn’t it?
When I saw this I honestly thought they were just going to mess with Ai a bit. Like maybe mock her, or extort cash, maybe strip her of her clothes at worst.
I sure as fuck did not expect this. Pardon the language, but I was that shocked.
-insert all manner of profanities here-
I found myself wanting to skip this scene. It was Tsubaki all over again, except that this time I liked Ai from the start.
Marco should have torn them limb from limb.
Actually no, he should have ripped off their genitals and called an ambulance. Let them spend the rest of their lives in agony, constantly debating with themselves whether they should commit suicide to end their own pitiful existences.
So I’m probably going too far, but I have a very low opinion of anyone who would inflict this sort of psychologically traumatizing violence on another human being.
I suppose, objectively speaking, I really didn’t want to know Marco and Ai’s backstories, or at least I wish they weren’t so traumatic.
Because I’ve always thought that the two of them happened to love each other in that sort of really devoted, if slightly unstable, manner. Now that their history has been revealed, it could be said that Marco and Ai were together only because of screwy events and don’t really have anything in common.
The fact that they’re still together does show that Marco and Ai probably have found other things to build a relationship, but I just can’t get over the implications that saving a girl from rape means that she’ll forever be in love with her savior.
tl;dr, Marco and Ai are awesome, but they’re no Isaac and Miria.
It would be nice to think that Yukiteru’s finally started on the path to becoming a Chessmaster or a Combat Pragmatist, but we all know that he’s merely doing what Yuno tells him to do.
Although there’s no problem with that combat strategy either, is there?
We all know how this is going to end, but I still have to applaud Marco for sticking to his guns and charging in head on.
It’s been a while since we’ve had a shot of Yuno that was pure femme fatale. La Yuno Nikita <3
Again, another I-can’t-believe-that-happened moment. Marco besting Yuno, and catching her blade with his teeth?
Sure, teenage Marco may have taken down a gang of rapists, but Yuno did slaughter most of an entire cult. Respect for Marco increase!
Welp, Yukiteru’s throwing darts again. Is this a sign that he’s finally stepping up his game, or does this mean that he’s episode 1 Yukiteru all over again?
That’s a sucker bet. Obviously Yukiteru’s at episode 1 levels again. Yukiteru’s like a Magikarp that refuses to evolve and never has the PP to use Flail. Terrible Pokémon analogy is terrible.
Well, it was Yuno’s plan, and Yuno’s plans usually work when Yukiteru goes along with them. And we knew that Marco and Ai were going to die at some point.
Somehow, I still can’t bring myself to hate the guy. I mean, he’s been trying to kill Yukiteru, after all.
Dammit Yuno, you just couldn’t give Ai a clean kill, couldn’t you. You had to slice her neck just enough for her to bleed to death slowly and agonizingly.
DAMMIT Yuno, of all the Diary-holders, why did it have to be Ai to suffer at your hand?
Marco keeping it real as always. Is it any wonder why I love the guy?
Well he did defeat Yuno in single combat, of course he can say whatever he wants.
Might controls everything, baby.
Just for once, I’d like Yukiteru to confront Yuno while not being affected by adrenaline. All the times he’s done something relatively great, they’re only because he’s panicked or scared senseless.
Maybe insanity is good for Yukiteru too.
The pain is one thing, the shock is another, the disabling of his abdominal muscles finishing the trifecta that ought to have left Marco on the floor, bleeding his guts out.
And yet he’s still standing, and trying to dig Ai out of rubble. Marco is a man of freakin’ steel.
Marco could have destroyed the parachute, or tossed it away, but such an act would have been the act of a lesser man.
And Marco’s actions in this episode have firmly established that he belongs in the company of immortals.
Sighhh. If nothing else, at least they died together.
YUKITERU IF YOU EVER BECOME THE NEW MASTER OF TIME AND SPACE YOU’D BETTER ALTER HISTORY AND GIVE THEM THEIR PERFECT ENDING
Uh, right. Yes. Yukiteru, there are more pressing things abound, like 8th and Ta-kun the magnificent pyrotechnist who are still up and around. Don’t you think this can wait?
Lolwut. Okay, so I’m sorry for Rea, but I have to say that anything pushing Yukiteru off the path of sanity is a plus point in my book.
That, and since tragedy = comedy + time, and it’s been 2 days since I watched the episode (yes I procrastinate) I can’t really feel anything beyond amusement. Bring on the Psycho Yukiteru please.
