10 to 1 odds someone dies within the first 2 minutes.
The annoying thing is that we never see the red moon again over the course of the entire episode. >:|
(At least, I don’t remember seeing it. Give me a break, I’m reviewing anime at 1:27 AM in the morning again FOR YOU PEOPLES.)
And Daddy Gasai gets stabbed at the 3:46 mark. Subtracting 1:30 for the OP, and 0:10 for the sponsor text, that’s a fatal attack at around 2:06.
Ironically, I don’t think Daddy Gasai really deserved it. I mean, he seemed a rather decent bloke.
He didn’t immediately go off the rails, didn’t really show any signs of mental instabilities. Sure, the paramedics were present, but he really did seem like the average, overworked, rarely-gets-to-see-his-family, typical salaryman.
Maybe it was that psycho wife of his that eventually turned him into some sort of abusive parent, maybe it was because he wilfully ignored the increasingly insane punishments that his wife came up with (he is culpable too, if he knew and did nothing) – but Yuno Prime and Yuno 2.0 killed their own Daddy Gasais too, so maybe there really was more to it than that.
Or, you know, you can’t really kill the wife and have the husband not ask questions. Yuno’s irrational and downright blind sometimes, but even she would have realized that.
My dear Murmur, from the moment you decided to go into the past with Minene on your tail, it was already wrecked.
Woah, Yukiteru’s mixing up the Yunos in the same way Yuno Prime’s been mixing up Yukiterus.
Can’t say I blame him. It’s a Yuno that has like maybe 5% of the mental instability, 0.001% of the homicidal tendencies, and is a loli.
Damn straight. Sure, Yuno Prime’s underage too, but you just can’t beat that loli goodness.
I didn’t actually expect this question to be answered. It just seemed like a Yukiteru thing to do – spout random crap and then have the plot conveniently forget it.
Lock that kid up, he’s done lost his mind.
One-on-one with Gasai Yuno? Yuno Prime? Shee-it, might as well just break his phone in half. It’ll be much less painful.
Oh dayum, did Yukiteru just dodge that?
Kid’s been busy training in the mountains or some shit.
… or maybe he’s just using that Cell Phone Kung Fu again.
I still cannot believe that works. And even if I can believe that Yukiteru’s eyes can focus fast enough to read the small text and then react accordingly – I don’t buy that the Diary can predict those changes in time.
Heck, the split second of static is more than enough time for a lunge. And we don’t even hear all that static squealing that should be there whenever Yuno starts an attack. I call total bullshit.
Not sure where Minene was planning to go with this. It’s not like screwing up the Third World’s game would benefit her in the present.
Well, might as well return the favour while she can, I guess.
… so is Loli Yuno dead?
Or rather, why didn’t Murmur just do that from the start. Once they had to start throwing magic beach balls around, she should have just gone for the scorched earth strategy.
Ugh, Yuno Prime, stop second-guessing yourself.
Yes. That is indeed “nuts”.
If Yukiteru had said, “If I take her future diary, I can kill her and put an end to this.” I might have gone with it. Suicidal plan, but it would work if he could pull it off.
But he’s taking the diary just to prevent her from changing the future? So he’s going to ignore the magic flying beach ball and demon familiar that can all too easily end the life of Loli Yuno?
Truly Yukiteru is an Erwin Rommel in the making.
But for all that I’ve said, mad respect to Yukiteru for this awesome logical conclusion.
Shit, he should have gone after Murmur while the future remained unchanged. Might have somehow whooped her ass too.
Oh dear. I didn’t think that she’d throw it, either.
-suppresses violent giggles-
Holy crap what.
We can worry about how Yuno missed later. Right now I’m more interested in how Asread decided to extend Yukiteru’s neck just so the hilt of the knife wouldn’t hit his jaw.
Murmur getting SCOOPED. Minene’s gonna be sending out those BnBs on her ass. Finish with a beam super, cancel into X-factor and beam super again for the win, stay free Murmur.
I have never actually used this sort of “lingo” so extensively before. I pray that I will never have to use it so extensively again.
So… Yuno Prime does have god powers after all? Or did Murmur enchant the magic beach ball to obey Yuno Prime?
Also Yukiteru seems to have acquired super regenerative abilities as well. A collision with a giant ball of pain moving at insane speeds and he’s still living.
Nothing says love like a giant death sphere of pain to the face. And the chest. And the stomach. And the extremities and so on and so forth.
Nice how they give shoutouts to all the Diary Owners-to-be.
ESPECIALLY TWELFTH OMG AWESOME
Of course, what I don’t understand is why they don’t show the 3rd World versions of Yukiteru and Minene. It might possibly raise some troubling plot holes.
Such as – if Yuno Prime is willing to keep Yukiteru 2.0 in a dream paradise, why isn’t she willing to just live with him in World 3.0?
Peaceful co-existence. Yuno 3.0 and Yukiteru 3.0 can go about their lives until Deus 3.0 screws with them, while Yuno Prime and Yukiteru 2.0 retire to Okinawa or something.
Sure, neither of them would probably accept it: Yuno Prime’s insane, and Yukiteru 2.0’s seen too much – but it would have been nice to have at least raised the option.
Okay, so I’m a little jaded right now since I just broke up with my girlfriend a week ago, but true love isn’t just romance. It’s a conscious decision to stick it out with the person, dammit, not every day is going to be passion-filled tingly sensations.
But Yuno still cut deep with that. Looks like insanity can co-exist with rationality.
Creepiest seduction scene I’ve ever seen in anime, and that includes the more screwed up hentai I’ve witnessed.
It must be the glasses. Those massive glasses terrify me for reasons I cannot yet comprehend.
Minene should have just said “Because I love him more than you do.” just to mix things up.
Bah, Minene. You’re coming off like a bad Neo impersonation. And the Matrix was a somewhat re-visualisation of Ghost in the Shell, so I guess you’re coming off like a bad Batou impersonation.
Mental images be sending shudders up my spine.
Oh holy crap what.
what the ffffFFF
OH SWEET MOTHER OF-
IT’S EDWARD CULLEN
IT’S EDWARD CULLEN AND HE’S FINALLY GONE INSANE AFTER BEING FORCED TO FULFIL THE PROJECTED FANTASY OF THE AUTHOR
Fanservice? Even now?
Asread sticks to its guns. One hesitant thumbs up.
BY ALL THAT IS GOOD AND HOLY BEGONE YOU FREAK
While Yukiteru is living the dream, literally.
As expected from Yukiteru, having a good meal and enjoying himself even as his friends are dying and suffering all about him.
Tsk, take it from me kid, that’s not how love works.
I ought to shut up before I go off on another rant, huh.
Damn man, if Murmur was toting all that power about, why didn’t she just ask Yuno Prime to remove the restraints and let her go to town on Deus 2.0?
Still, it seems like Murmur really might be a faithful interpretation of a demon. She may not have any plan apart from causing death and destruction and rebelling against the Man, and she seems to be limited until a human grants her freedom to act.
Oh look Loli Yuno’s miraculously safe. As is the entire classroom.
Even though Murmur firebombed the entire building earlier. Seems legit.
Magic beach ball of pain? Demon familiar powers?
Screw that, Gasai Yuno Prime does things up close and personal.
Because that’s just how Gasai Yuno Prime rolls.
Apologies for the somewhat lacklustre writing this time, but as you might have noticed from the screencaps, there’s barely any lines of dialogue apart from the usual threats and intimidations and declarations of what’s impossible and how Yukiteu wants to save the world again.
It was mostly action – so that’s that, unless you really want 1400+ words of me quoting UMVC3 commentary.
Also there’s the thing about my breakup.
Although to be frank this episode was really quite wasted with all that action. I’m not confident that Asread can get a happy ending out of the current mess – or maybe that’s how it’s actually supposed to end. I’m down with that.
