From this week’s episode, it looks like our narrator so far has been the dead director. Is that supposed to mean something? Am I supposed to guess that the director may have faked his death and be the culprit all along? I’ve always held that the order of death is the most important determinant of suspicion, though, which makes Magata the most suspicious. This week’s episode certainly didn’t help by showing her buying the knife. I really hope that the answer isn’t so simple, though…there’s a high chance that her personalities will just get blamed, which is a pretty lame ending.
This week’s episode also brought along another one of the professor’s philosophical talks. While I can somewhat relate to what he says about being chained down, I find his statements about Magata’s multiple personalities strange. Transitioning from statements about chains to statements about love and ethics is valid to me because love and ethics are restricting concepts that are imposed upon us as humans, but I disagree with calling them a compensation for something we’re lacking. Granted, my knowledge of philosophy isn’t exactly extensive, so I’d be glad to discuss this topic further…arguments of the human mind are always fun.
