>stating the obvious
>puny yukiteru brain cannot handle simple truth
I didn’t go back to check the dates and stuff, but it seemed like a really, really long time between the deaths of the parents and their eventual discovery by Yukiteru.
But after all that time, the bodies didn’t seem to rot – at least there was no obvious bloating or leakage of decomposed fluids seeping out the body cavities and such, and Yukiteru didn’t notice any foul smell after all that time.
Conclusion: Gasai Yuno was dutifully cleaning her parents’ bodies – and it would not seem too far-fetched to assume that she must have been cleaning at very frequent intervals too, since their clothes don’t seem to be stained by anything obvious like blood or decaying body matter.
Such a filial child! -blows nose into handkerchief, suppresses tears-
Murmur’s wording in the flashback is a little fishy. More on this later.
I think it’s absolutely hilarious that the giant flying transporter ball thing was buried under Yuno’s home.
Yes, it had to be a simple teleportation trick by Murmur, but the thought of Yuno going back in time before the house was built to bury her flying beachball by hand just in case she had to one day summon it and then travel forwards in time to replace Yuno 2.0 really tickles me.
Decisive evidence that Gasai Yuno should have been a Mahou Shoujo in Madoka Magica.
Yes, Akemi Homura went through more than just 2 world resets. Yes, Akemi Homura saw her precious Madoka die over and over again.
But Akemi Homura never had to directly murder Madoka to get her reset.
Gasai Yuno killed Yukiteru the first time without knowing the limitations, but is willing to outright murder Yukiteru a second time just so she can end up in a world where she could possibly murder Yukiteru a third time and so on ad infinitum.
Am I saying that Gasai Yuno is superior to Akemi Homura? Not quite – 2 resets can’t really compare to the mental stress of at least the few dozen resets that Akemi Homura went through – and we can’t compare them until they go through the same trials.
But I am saying that Gasai Yuno deserves a shot against Walpurgis Night. And she may not even need magic powers to beat it. Look on the power of Yandere, ye mortals, and despair!
Yuno’s taken debating lessons from youtube comment threads: “You did the same things I did, so therefore if I’m wrong, you’re wrong! In fact, you’re wronger! Quod erat demonstrandum, bitch!”
But yes Gasai Yuno is insane. She’s not in love with a particular Yukiteru. She’s quite happy to kill Yukiteru 2.0 just so she can move on to Yuki3o (haha I’m so punny).
Does that mean that she’s in love with the idea of Yukiteru? That doesn’t quite right.
It seems like she’s managed to objectify Yukiteru and then fall in love with that objectification. Kind of like how I can fall in love with Micky Dee double cheeseburgers, doesn’t matter which burger I’m given from the serving rack, I’d love each one equally – just that I don’t fall in love with Micky Dee double cheeseburgers.
Look at Yukiteru, all badass and gripping onto sheer rockfaces with his bare hands.
This was amazing.
This summed up Yukiteru’s actions for the past 23 episodes, for his entire life, in like 10 seconds.
Beautiful, dramatic work. I was moved to tears.
Holy crap it’s Minene
-brain does not compute-
That is an excellent question. Must have something to do with Deus’ impregnation of Minene.
Deus in Minene’s body? Minene speaking with the voice of Norio Wakamoto? Asread missed an opportunity at anime divinity, there.
Question! Why does Yuno get god powers if Yukiteru’s still alive? Or have they always been there from the First World? Does Yuno get twice the god powers if she wins the Second World’s game too?
For a moment I was sure that Minene screwed up her powers and teleported Yukiteru into space instead.
I was so looking forward to seeing his blood flashboil and his body swelling up before simply suffocating, but oh well.
Yukiteru is obviously enjoying Minene’s cushioning once again. Reluctant props to him for feeling of the bust of a demigoddess.
Just another one of those screenshots that give anime such a bad reputation.
Since Deus died a day earlier than expected, and since he halved his power for Minene, does that mean that his power and life ticks down in a half-life manner? Constantly dividing by two.
It might explain why that little ruby that’s left of Deus is surviving for so long. Maybe that’s the near infinitesimal limit of Deus’ existence.
Also, if Minene with half of Deus’ power and strength could outwit and withstand Murmur so easily, why the hell couldn’t Deus lay the smackdown on Murmur by himself?
So yes. Murmur. The Murmur that appeared to Yuno Prime seemed startlingly indifferent about the murder.
If what Deus says is true – that means that the Murmur we’ve seen is Murmur Prime, and she’s possibly murdered Murmur 2.0 too. Which wouldn’t be difficult, since Murmur Prime has no constrains on her power.
And if that’s true, that means that the supposed little differences in the events between the First and Second Worlds (which I didn’t notice, but I’ll take the reader observations/comments at face value) could have been due to Murmur Prime subtly interfering or doing the Diary Introductions slightly differently – assuming that the Murmur short segments are canon, of course.
Pregnant Minene. I am sure that this image is relevant to the interests of a certain group of people out there.
So Minene gets a new partial arm to replace the one that got blown off, but she can’t replace the missing eye? Really?
It’s not like we really need the eyepatch as an identifying feature. She’s like the only purple haired, facial-expression-distorting female in the cast.
Why doesn’t Yuno just… grab Yukiteru and stop him from turning into a social outcast and thereby getting in contact with Deus and entering the Survival Game in the first place?
If Yukiteru wasn’t in the Survival Game, there’d be no need to worry about killing him or resurrecting him. It’s so simple I can’t believe Yuno hasn’t thought of it. Or maybe she just wants the psychologically damaged version.
The Gasai household is really effed up. Seriously just wtf.
“Why are you putting your daughter in a cage?”
Oh god it’s Tsubaki before the abuse she looks so innocent ;__;
Freakin piece of filth.
I find it hard to believe that all it takes to program a Future Diary is a supercomputer.
Just… what… my brain cannot stand it.
I mean it’s not inconceivable that Deus provided Eleventh with sufficiently advanced technology that is indistinguishable from magic. But if that was the case, Eleventh would have been capable of mass manufacturing those Apprentice Diaries all on his own.
So I’m a bit confused on how the things were made. Deus makes magic phones that have to be programmed manually? Can’t Deus just… wave his hand and make them complete?
Yes, this annoys me far more than it should.
Now you’re saying that Eleventh had a hand in picking the contestants too?
How the hell did he still lose in the end? I mean, there’s hubris, but this is beyond incompetence. Eleventh rigged the competition… with people who could actually beat him. Just… ARGHHGHG
holy freakin shit what
That’s my boy Yukiteru, messing with the past and causality like a Shachō.
Yuno really can’t tell the difference between people from differing timestreams, can she.
Okay, so they’re probably still the same since they had the same experiences up to the moment Yuno grabbed them – which is maybe only 2 years gone, and they were the bad 2 years with the debts and estrangement too – but Yuno really can’t tell people apart, can she.
Kind of like how I can’t really tell Micky Dee cheeseburgers apart unless I ask for extra pickles – assuming that I do. Or that I even eat Micky Dee cheeseburgers in the first place.
I am liking this new Yuno look. Those narrowed, foxy eyes. Rowrrrr.
Minene’s got quite a point. King Moron here is trying to save everyone again and he’s not even the one with the demigod powers. Yuno should keep going back in time and keep grabbing Yukiteru’s parents a minute apart and then dump the whole group on him just to screw with his mind.
So we now know Deus’ gameplan. We also know that it may be really short-sighted, since Yukiteru may not actually inherit Deus’ powers if he’s in a Third World where the Survival Game hasn’t even started, and after stopping Yuno Prime we’ll end up with 2 Yukiterus, 1 vanilla Murmur and Minene, and 1 empowered Murmur and Minene.
Which is probably a greater mess than just having Yuno Prime and Murmur Prime around.
But of course, the biggest question still remains unanswered – what the heck is Murmur Prime’s objective?
