All the talk about the story of the “monster” this week seems limited to the story that has been told at the end of each episode…I haven’t really been paying any attention to it, so I’ve probably been missing clues. Anyway, it looks like the entire story has been snake gathering, seemingly triggered by Ayano’s father, as predicted. They seem to be giving him an out by saying that it’s happening while he’s unconscious, but I guess we’ll have to see.
There still remains the question of how Ayano died. Right now, it’s looking like her father killed her because she learned too much, but there’s always the possibility that there’s more to the story. Also, I’m curious about Shuuya’s behavior too and what it indicates…he seems to know so much, but what exactly is his plan?
