Boku Dake ga Inai Machi Episode 10: That escalated REALLY quickly!

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.49_[2016.03.10_16.45.49]

Start this flashback off with an inspirational speech! Because…that totally works on elementary school students…

Yeah, buddy…you’re not being suspicious at all. What’s going on with Satoru’s face?

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.57_[2016.03.10_16.50.52]

You know, if I were a literary man, I’d be able to tell you exactly why this is incredibly symbolic. Instead, I have to go with “I don’t even know what happens in this book” because British literature is icky.

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.59_[2016.03.10_16.52.39]

Haha I’m pretty sure I would have reacted exactly like Kenya in this situation.

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.32_[2016.03.10_16.56.06]

Wait…she could tell that all three were boys? Seriously?

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.47_[2016.03.10_16.57.50]

I-It’s not like I wanted to hang out in your hideout, baka!

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.05_[2016.03.10_16.58.38]

Oh hey…it looks like Kazu will be the one getting close to the mark this time…I guess Satoru can’t be cheating on Kayo, right?

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.40_[2016.03.10_16.59.35]

Oh hey…I wonder why we’re being told this. Could it have anything to do with this guy being the third victim? You’d think that Kenya would have known this already (I can somewhat understand Satoru not noticing). I seriously can’t believe these guys are friends…

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.42_[2016.03.10_17.01.34]

Because we weren’t confused enough…

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.23_[2016.03.10_17.02.59]

Cutting to this girl right after Satoru asks about the culprit searching for an alternative target suggests that she will be the next target. It makes sense…Satoru has changed the past very drastically, so it’s very likely that things will no longer go the way he wants.

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.41_[2016.03.10_17.07.22]

This sounds suspiciously like foreshadowing…

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.39_[2016.03.10_17.09.58]

I don’t care if you call it “playing detective”…this should still come off as at least a little weird. But I guess kids usually don’t get judged the same way…

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.00_[2016.03.10_17.11.20]

This looks like it will be relevant soon too…perhaps Satoru will find himself in a situation where he can’t remove the seat belt in time? Car goes off the road into the river, perhaps?

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.13_[2016.03.10_17.14.11]

You were the target all along! Finally, this guy reveals himself.

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.35_[2016.03.10_17.16.50]

Looks like I got baited by the focus on the other girl just like Satoru did. I didn’t expect him to take out Satoru. But I guess there weren’t too many episodes left and going through the other two victims the same way as Kayo didn’t logically fit.

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.24_[2016.03.10_17.21.09]

Game over for both of you? Are you declaring that you won or are you planning on killing yourself?

[HorribleSubs] Boku dake ga Inai Machi - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.23_[2016.03.10_17.22.52]

Oh, I see…the town is saved, but he takes Satoru’s life as a price. Also, I’m not sure why Satoru doesn’t just pull the seat belt out more and then wriggle his way out instead of fiddling with the buckle that Yashiro has obviously sabotaged. I understand once he’s in the water because the pressure of the water probably makes it harder for him to maneuver, but he had plenty of time before then…

There was a lot of foreshadowing this week that suggested that this would happen to Satoru, but I honestly still felt blindsided. A lot of the things I pointed out make more sense now that we’ve seen the entire episode play out, but I really didn’t see all of the details of Yashiro’s reveal. That being said, it’s been a while since we had a cliffhanger ending, right? I really hope Satoru’s survival isn’t because he told Yashiro that he “knew Yashiro’s future”. Because it almost feels like Yashiro will be the one that cuts him loose.

  1. seatbelts aren’t that hard to get out of, even if they are closed… i mean the coat may have hindered him a bit, but still!

    British literature is icky? ikr T_T

    I-It’s not like I like commenting on this blog, rooBaka!


    1. kids these days, right? no idea how to get out of life-or-death situations…

      well, in high school they offered british lit as a class, but i skipped it to take the advanced placement classes instead >.>



  2. Lol, we really might get to see if Satoru’s revival works even if he dies xD Although all those film reels breaking at the end seems to suggest it doesn’t… RIP
