Ranpo Kitan – Game of Laplace Episode 4: What exactly am I watching in this prison?

[HorribleSubs] Ranpo Kitan - Game of Laplace - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.29_[2015.07.23_19.17.05]

So this week’s mystery seems to have ended quickly like last week’s episode. As promised, ME-chan made her appearance after two weeks, but I found her autopsy this time to be a lot more boring. As for the mystery itself, did anyone else think it was really obvious that it was Kagami acting as Twenty Faces? That scene between him and the other detective seemed too random and his actions seemed to indicate too much of a personal link with the case from three years prior. But that aside, another question I have for the group: does anyone else find Hashiba’s actions in the episode really annoying? I feel like he’s pretty much the worst character because of how he acts around Kobayashi…

Is everything going to be so simple with this mystery? The episode ends with the mystery seemingly resolved, but they seemed to push Kagami pretty hard into cast…are they really planning to just take him out? Also, I’m really curious about the Twenty Faces mask. If you look at the OP closely, there’s a part where every major character is shown on screen, but then swapped with an image of that character wearing a similar mask. Is it going to be a recurring theme? Maybe Twenty Faces will continue to re-emerge with some mysterious mastermind? Or maybe I’m just reading too much into it…

  1. I wanted to see the villain from the previous episode get thrown into that grinder so badly…

    Hashiba is really irritating though. I’m hoping Kobayashi will eventually get sick of him too and kick him out of the main cast.
