sola 11: Parting of ways.


How should I put this episode..? The calm before the storm I guess.

Yorito makes a decision to return his sister… and everything to normal. He returns home to Aono and tells her he wishes to restart everything from the beginning. With that said, he spends his last day at school the usual way by skipping classes to watch the sky.

The rest of the episode then focuses on Mana and Koyori as they realize Aono and Yorito are going to leave. In fact, their classmates memories of Yorito has also been erased and Mana’s as well, after a teary last meeting on the school rooftop. Mayuko and Takeshi also leave town, as Mayuko feels she might interfere with Matsuri’s decision.

Finally, after everything, Matsuri confronts Aono… sword in hand.

Well, tying up all the loose ends now already and the series is heading for it’s ending. This episode is rather boring but it does show the transientness of the Yaka and Yorito, as a phantom construct.

Nothing much else to comment here on this episode, so it’s another long wait for the next week to see the showdown between Matsuri and Aono. Ultimately, what would happen to Yorito? Will he continue on as a phantom construct or will he disappear.

    Or will he become a real boy ala Pinochio? Remember Takeshi was going to return Mayuko to human life by killing 1 Yaka with that sword. What could be done when you kill 2? Does a body even matter with that? Not that Yoritard deserves it. Mana’s words were very accurate even though she needed to follow her own advice considering her behavior in the last few episodes. Think more of other’s feelings. I understand the desire for being true to yourself and all, especially in today’s global, materialistic, confining, and cynical society, but people really should live more carefully. Randomly thrashing your way through exsistence, breaking yourself upon barriers and breaking barriers that are others can’t be a very satisfying way to live.

    I seriously doubt that. You have to remember, a Yaka turned Mayuko into a Yaka. Takeshi’s reasoning would probaly be something like if the yaka dies, the spell will be broken. Sinc he has no way of knowing which yaka turned mayuko into one, the best thing he could do is to go around killing yakas until he kills the right one. Or something like that.

    Anyway, there’s only 2 ways this could go without messing it up. Either A) Matsuri kills Aono or B) Aono kills matsuri. Okay, that’s in the worst case scenario, but I don’t think there’s any doubt there’s going to be some kind of showdown bewteen the 2 in the near future.

    Well, frankly i think they can’t have both characters dying off.. might end with a twist or something.. (i hope..) This series is soon approaching its end, but still have the DVD specials to look forw to…. =x
    Then again, *eagerly waits for Ep12*
