Wow. What an episode.
Although no one can stay dead in this world, there still something very unsettling about watching everyone in the party die one by one. I suppose there’s no way to take away the weight of death completely, especially when people are killed in fairly gruesome ways.
Also, what a backstory for Yuri. It’s really sad. I mean, I shouldn’t expect less considering what I’ve heard about Key, but it’s pretty heavy. I wonder now if she’s a girl who really wants to fight the system, or just wants to get back at God. Still, in this episode, she really distanced herself from Haruhi. She’s not self-centered and selfish enough to be Haruhi, but cares about the people around, and is heavily impacted to what happens to them. However, she also has the ability of a leader to do what needs to be done.
Although the side characters don’t get that much screentime compared to Yuri, they’re all still managing to really grow on me. Especially TK with his English.
I’m really excited for this series now. I mean, I was really excited last episode, but I’m even more excited now. A week is too long to wait for the next episode
