OH MY GOD, TENSHI FINALLY SAYS A FULL SENTENCE. HEY GUYS POP OUT THE CHAMPAGNE.
And…. we have our first farewell of the show, Iwasawa-san. So apparently, you don’t just disappear when you follow Tenshi’s orders, but you also disappear when your regrets to your life are resolved as well. Which is what happened to Iwasawa here.
Of course her backstory is also revealed, where she wanted to be a singer but she died from a brain contusion as a result of domestic violence at her home, before she managed to fulfill it. Well, not exactly very tragic, but it is really sad in a way. I think I like her backstory more than Yurippe.
Also, Yuri and gang infiltrate the Angel Area (read: Tenshi’s dorm room) to er, hack in to her PC to discover links from God. So er, yeah, Tenshi is possibly computer-controlled or -aided in some form. Unfortunately, they discover a more disturbing secret; Tenshi hasn’t been getting any help from the Big Old Guy Above, and even her “magic” skills are of her own making. Apparently.
I’ll admit, this episode is more “happening” than the rest and it seems Maeda’s quickening the pace already. We had 2 songs getting live performances, people disappearing and shocking secrets revealed, all in the span of 20 minutes. Maeda’s really ramping the pace up, but then it’s already 3/13, so he does need every minute of his runtime.
So…. let the Wild Mass Guessing begin!
