Mayoiga Episode 5: Facepalm

Sure, I’ll pretend to care about this. I mean, this explains why the driver stayed behind and it makes him much less suspicious, but still…something about this guy’s voice acting makes it really hard for me to believe he’s actually desperate to save his dead daughter…ghost…thing…

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.11_[2016.04.30_11.32.11]

“I just saw a large version of you, so the regular-sized version is too scary!” …kyaa?

Something isn’t right here. Weren’t these guys lost? How did they make it back to the village if they turned away from the tunnel that they thought would take them back to the village? You can’t expect me to believe that they’re better navigators in a panic than they are when calm.

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.55_[2016.04.30_11.34.57]

Oh hey…are suspicions going to turn towards Mitsumune now? Wasn’t he also against locking Jack in the prison?

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.19_[2016.04.30_11.36.57]

I really hope this is another side effect of whatever is affecting the group because I find it highly unlikely that they’d forget the guy who keeps yelling his name at everyone. If not, then the writers are just taking an unnecessary stab at the Judgeness guy while he’s down…

I was going to propose a theory that whatever was affecting them is just causing some sort of memory loss, but it doesn’t fit because the group that left the village would have forgotten the people who didn’t leave. For example, there should have been no mention of Mitsumune. Maybe there’s a supernatural element after all…no! I must persevere with my theory!

Wait…what? “Each of us” or “all of us”? You’re making it sound like there are enough beasts out there for all of you. Either that or you’re talking about securing food, which makes the assumption that there are no vegans in this group…which I find unlikely.

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.48_[2016.04.30_13.20.36]

Fair point, but is that really your biggest concern right now? You just all established that you heard different things when the “creature” roared. Shouldn’t that be suspicious? I’d be wondering if we were all tripping if it were me…

Also, if everyone hears different things, why did everyone agree it was a bear? Did the first person hear a bear and everyone just believed him/her?

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.02_[2016.04.30_13.23.34]

Oh hey…she’s capable of making an expression.

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.32_[2016.04.30_13.26.21]

Yeah! Execute the guy who’s a ghost! That’s the best plan! It’s almost as bad as “burn the witch because if she burns, she’s a witch”.

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.38_[2016.04.30_13.29.35]

This guy’s going to leave the group in a horror show? Well…RIP…

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.23_[2016.04.30_13.30.32]

There are definitely supposed to be subtitles here…oops.

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.36_[2016.04.30_13.33.19]

This never ends well…

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.23_[2016.04.30_13.34.38]

I honestly think this whole thing would be pretty interesting if Mitsumune turned out to be the culprit. That being said, we have to follow the rule…Yottsun is the current suspect because he was the first to die and still hasn’t technically been confirmed dead. I’m not suspicious of Masaki at all…she probably will be revealed as clairvoyant or psychic or something.

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.26_[2016.04.30_13.37.22]

Random singing…

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.22_[2016.04.30_13.39.45]

This conversation is so boring.

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.11_[2016.04.30_13.40.43]


[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.26_[2016.04.30_13.41.13]

So spooky!

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.10_[2016.04.30_13.42.01]

I’m so done with Lovepon…

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_22.00_[2016.04.30_13.43.16]

You are aware that people can suffocate from smoke, right? I’d still be pissed if I were Mitsumune.

[HorribleSubs] Mayoiga - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_22.31_[2016.04.30_13.44.23]

Well, this definitely doesn’t look like Mitsumune. This has to be related to each person’s brain, right?

Random side note: Masaki was about to say something when this thing appeared…does this count as “main character interrupts right before another character says something really important” cliche?

But yeah…that episode happened. I guess I should have seen the “psychic powers” thing coming given that Masaki suggested her clairvoyance when she first met Mitsumune. The revelation that Lion can tell when someone is going to die shouldn’t be all too surprising. Still, I really didn’t want the reason for all of the weird stuff happening to these people to be supernatural. Given that each person perceived something so specific to that person, I thought it would be much more interesting if the cause was psychotropic. But whatever…we’ll see. It could still be some Maze Runner-type scenario where the village is actually an experiment for psychic people, right?

  1. I think the big image they saw in the cave are the images from memories of people who are in the cave. MaiMai said it’s giant Mitsumune, that sick boy said it’s like robot, Mikage said it’s laughter.

    When Mitsumune and Masaki saw big image in the forest. They are 2 images mix together in one. Penguin doll should be from Masaki’s memory, another one should be from Mitsumune’s. If he didn’t mention name when he saw that big image, I would think this is Jack-kun already.

    What I am afraid the most is not big giant, fire, lovepon, Mikage but those three girls who request Mitsumune to be a guard for their shelter. I mean, they are smiling. Why have they this happy expression when their situation is not something that should be happy. Everyone else are worrying, wondering. That’s why their expression is the one I’m worrying about them the most. All of them would change because the forest travel incident. There’s roar following them, Judgeness san fell to the cliff. Big figure in the cave. These 3 girls’s fear “are expanding” to the level that they would consult together before deciding to let Mitsumune be the guard. To be survive from danger, they sacrificed him to face danger instead, for them to be save. This time Mitsumune accepted this duty so we still don’t see the sacrificing clearly. But in this episode is very interesting to me. Behavior of three girls, Mikage, Gun boy and girl, make me remind to Natsume Soseki’s quote about changing of people.

    I hope next episode will come soon so I will see 3 girls’s behaviors are like I assume or not.

    ps. I too, so done with Lovepon.


    1. i feel like im thinking along the same lines

      but penguins are not scary at all! unless you think the images come from desires (like how MaiMai is into Mitsumune)

      i dunno…that just sounds like standard human behavior to me >.>

      they’re certainly suspicious and there was something devious about the way they manipulated Mitsumune, but im still not too sure

      …maybe we should execute her…
