>Yukiteru stepping up to the plate
>Shit just got real
What is this man doing as a mere municipal Mayor. With that level of acting ability he should be a Cabinet Minister at least.
It must be the fashion sense. Going by past trends, you have to dress like an overworked salaryman to get anywhere near the ministries.
While Deus is growing more senile as time goes on.
What the heck? One episode ago and you were not-so-subtly shifting events in Yukiteru’s favour, and now you’re expelling him just because some political hack said so?
It must be some sort of political commentary – that everyone in Japan obeys the politicians, even Gods of Time and Space.
Arriving fashionably late, with a cute girl in a sweet little black number pressing up against you? That is classy as hell.
I could learn to like this new Yukiteru. The change of clothes definitely helps. Clothes make the man, and these clothes make Yukiteru one suave sonuvabitch.
Just, it’s a shame that he’s still wearing shorts.
What is this god-tier exploitation of Diary powers?
Why has it taken so long for Yukiteru to abuse his Diary powers as such?
And why hasn’t Yukiteru used those 5 days to play the stock market/lotteries, amass ludicrous amounts of cash and hire a private army to eliminate all who stand in his way?
You think you got game, kid – but you still green as grass.
Two stone-cold killers facing off, no holds barred, cage match of destruction, plenty of folding chairs to go around.
GET HYPE BABY
LETS GO BABY ‘LES GO
Why. Why did they raise my expectations simply to crush them? (*´Д`)
I mean in hindsight, I should have picked up on that laugh. That evil laugh was more of a scared shitless laugh.
But I was so ready to believe. I was so ready to believe in a new Yukiteru, bringing hope and change and carnage and mass murder to the masses. I was so ready to believe in Yukiteru 2012, and then I find out that it’s nothing but hot air.
Although I have to give him credit for being able to follow a script. That’s all you need to do to be a politician anyway.
Gasai Yuno 2012. We can do this.
I haven’t been keeping up with the anime timeframe and all, but is this the fated “happy union good ending” for Yuno?
It better not be. After all that buildup, and the only fanservice we got was a shot of Yuno’s pantsu? Dang, Yuno pantsu fanservice comes practically every two episodes anyway.
Although Yukiteru using sex/physical intimacy to satiate/manipulate Yuno? There’s hope for the kid yet.
Minene and that chipmunk/squirrel.
Sorry Nishijima, looks like you’ve just been NTRed by an adorable ball of fluff.
Hey, I calls it as I sees it, and Nishijima ain’t the one settling into Minene’s bountiful assets.
Adopted. That might explain the righteous upbringing. Or maybe not.
Hmm. The foster parents’ original kid? Yuno’s sibling, who got totalled by those parents before Yuno came along? Someone completely unrelated just to rouse suspicion?
How does Yuno get away with showing that much skin, crawl through dense vegetation like some SpecOps, and not get divebombed and destroyed by mosquitoes, assorted bugs, and having all manner of plant-inflicted rashes on her skin?
Why, it’s simple.
Because mosquitoes, bugs, and nonsentient plants know not to mess with Gasai Yuno. Because they know that if they do, she’s going to come back with a knife and get in their shit.
Big plants tell their little baby plants stories about Gasai Yuno coming for them if they don’t open their leaves to catch the sunlight right. That’s word.
These guys obviously have never heard of the concept of camouflage. Except for that cute little girl in green there.
What cute little girl in green? Exactly.
Let that possibly be a lesson to Yukiteru. Gasai Yuno is the light, the truth, and the sevenfold path to immortality, omnipotence, and dominatrix sex with handcuffs until the end of time.
Well, assuming he does resurrect her. But the immortality and omnipotence bit is good too.
I dub thee Shinobi-chan.
And as smart Shinobi-chan is about proper jungle battle dress, she definitely knows nothing about tempting fate.
Dat foreshadowing 101: Dialogue lines are that are a practical guaranteed path to character death.
Right. Real selfless and all.
Instead of learning from 8th’s example, trying to carry on her work; the children of the orphanage want her looking after them forever.
Yep, that’ll be a real sweet life, getting her into the survival game against her will. If she wins, they get to sit tight for life. If she loses, it’s only her life on the line, right? Win-win situation for those good children all around.
Why let a little blood in your eyes slow down your murdering efficiency?
Stylish goggles. The fashionable in-thing this season for all homicidal maniacs. Available at all good supermarket outlets.
You know, for a moment, I actually thought that those were anti-personnel flechette launchers.
Eleventh does seem crazy-prepared and criminally-connected enough to pull that off. He’s probably staying as a Mayor only to fly under the radar anyhow.
But hey, a high output electromagnetic jammer is pretty crazy-prepared too.
And definitely criminally-connected. Money laundering through yakuza-run laundromats/restaurants/vacation resorts. Natural politician he may be, there’s no way he could sell “high output electromagnetic jammer” on the mayoral security budget to his taxpayers.
… or could he? -insert more subtle political commentary here-
“Ain’t personal, it’s just business.”
And karmic justice for dragging 8th into a survival game she probably didn’t want.
Pretty much the only child whom I felt didn’t deserve to die.
Alas, Shinobi-chan. I would have at least preferred that you die quickly and painlessly, but Yuno isn’t really known for that sort of thing.
Nonono! You don’t explain your plans! Loose lips sink ships!
Yuno is unimpressed.
A thrust! A fine thrust.
Also, that blood splatter looks like umeboshi. I think I’m getting too desensitized to bloodshed. Or Mirai Nikki needs to take after Another in the blood animation department.
Probably the closest thing to a tragic figure in Mirai Nikki.
Sure, I may be assuming that she never wanted to replace Deus, but you can’t deny that she was perfectly happy before the game started, and she’ll be perfectly happy if the game was called off right then.
Best laid plans falling apart. Well Yuno, you can’t always plan for everything.
I was so tempted to use this as my highlighted quote, but we all know that Yukiteru never means a damn thing he says.
Seems like some Spider-sense at work.
But Yukiteru and Yuno really should have displayed a little cooperation. Ram Eleventh’s car into the guardrails, then get Yuno to fill the car with lead.
Another minor gripe – where and when did Yukiteru learn how to drive?
Seriously? The one time Yuno has to hesitate over killing someone, and it has to be the final boss? Really?
I fell for you for your lethal pragmatism, and you throw that right away. Dang it, Yuno.
Damn if Minene looks hot in that biker suit. Akise… well, at least he still looks normal.
Ah, Uryuu Minene. Don’t ever change. Always rockin’ that combination of sexy outfits and sexier military-grade high explosives.
dafuq (round 2)
Is this standard procedure? To be keeping the umbilical chords of children at orphanages?
The mind reels!
Yeah, we’re all gobsmacked.
So you’re saying that the real Gasai Yuno is dead, and that the Gasai Yuno that we all know and love; the delusional, manipulative, sociopathic, obsessive, delightful, all-too memorable yandere, has been an imposter – and apart from the name, may not have any similarity at all to the real Gasai Yuno?
To wit – the real Gasai Yuno might be a boring, forgettable side-character that would be actually suited to Yukiteru, instead of the faux Gasai Yuno whom we’ve enjoyed all this while?
Damn right it’s an outrage. Awesome Yuno should have been off conquering the world while boring Yuno can keep Yukiteru out of sight.
What could have been, aye?
