Charlotte Episode 10: Time travel woes

[HorribleSubs] Charlotte - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.27_[2015.09.06_08.41.23]

So this week’s episode resolves the time leap stuff. While I’m willing to concede that the details of Shunsuke’s power make sense and that many of my questions from last week were answered, there is an important question that was never answered. How did Yuu regain the memory of what happened before the time leap occurred? This week’s episode reinforces again and again the idea that no one can remember anything that happened in a timeline other than their own…why is Yuu different? My guess is that it’s a plot device and something that the producers hoped wouldn’t be noticed…is that too pessimistic? Honestly, I don’t even think it was necessary for him to remember that, but still…

A happy ending for all this week, right? However, there are still three episodes remaining. The show could go back to business as usual…it seems hard to do, though, since Yuu suddenly has this enhanced power and the ending of the series would definitely end up being weak. There needs to be some kind of goal, right? Maybe Yuu really tries to become a savior of sorts by joining Shunsuke and trying to take powers away from people to keep them from scrutiny. The other option is that Yuu becomes targeted in the final three episodes…maybe he has to time leap again to save himself. He flaunted his powers in front of the crazed girl this week to save Ayumi…what’s stopping her from telling people about his abilities?

    1. I’ve been trying to avoid mentioning Maeda just because I expected this going into the show…can’t really complain if I knew what I was getting myself into…
