Ranpo Kitan – Game of Laplace Episode 10: Twenty Faces origin story time

[HorribleSubs] Ranpo Kitan - Game of Laplace - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.36_[2015.09.11_06.45.24]

This week’s episode was pretty slow…the entire episode is devoted to the captured Kobayashi hearing the story of the Twenty Faces. I’m honestly not sure how much his story actually contributes to the show. We already know that he was heavily abused from the story that Akechi gave…it’s not a huge stretch to conclude that he had a rough home life as well. That’s why I’m curious whether there was something else I was supposed to conclude this week. Maybe it’s something about his statement at the end about sacrificing Kobayashi?

I’m curious what Namikoshi’s intentions are with this final episode coming up. His system is meant to be an immortal system of self-governance that uses a mask to empower citizens to take justice into their own hands. So what does he hope the riot will do? Is just simply just to spread the rumor of Twenty Faces further? Does he intend to focus on targeting a global stage by choosing a specific target? I don’t see how all of this involves Kobayashi, though…maybe that one’s just to specifically attack Akechi. I guess we’ll see. Making Namikoshi a surprise dark character might be an interesting ending too…
