This week’s episode was a touch on the melodramatic side, but interestingly dark nonetheless. You may laugh at the girls’ behavior, especially Minami’s behavior, but I could honestly see that sort of thing happening. What was curious to me in this episode was that they gave reasons for Futaba and Hitoe to want to escape the work, but they didn’t really give a reason for Minami. Obviously, the butterfly man (I refused to call him Sphenoider) was able to exploit Minami in a vulnerable area…what was it?
As for the end of the episode…Sakurako, you really disappoint me with your logic. Sakurako just stated that Hanabusa is aware of BOTH her and Shoutarou’s existence, and decides to split them both up. So…you just want to make yourselves easier targets? Is that what I’m supposed to get from this scene? It’s not like Hanabusa is suddenly going to forget Shoutarou exists just because Sakurako is no longer hanging out with him. Anyway, next week’s episode is the finale, so I’m looking forward to seeing how Shoutarou decides to make himself useful.
