Wow, this was a real shocker of an episode after last week’s episode.
Let’s see…. first of all,
KYUBEY FUCKING EATS THE USED UP GRIEF SEEDS!!! So that’s where they go to once they’re “used up”. Oh boy oh boy ohboyohboyohboy.
Junko confirmed for BRO-est mom ever. I mean, hell, letting your 14 year old daughter join you in the middle of the night for a drink and dispensing adult advice to her? How many Asian pare– heck, how many parents would be this cool outside of anime! This is possibly the best Yuko Gotou side character role so far.
Kyouko continues the cool henshin tradition of the show. And…
Fuck yeah Kyoko-dancing. Also, LOL Walpurgis Night. Urobuchi, oh YOU!
And oh god, finally….
So it turns out the Soul Gems are LITERALLY Soul Gems. Literally, in all sense of the word “soul”. What the little fucker, Kyubey, has been hiding all this while about the contract is that when you take it up, you forfeit your body and literally get turned in to a Soul Gem. Meanwhile, your body is now a “Doll”/shell. Holy. Fucking. Crap. I did not see this coming. I mean, holy shit, you pretty much give up your future, your life and your body when you become a mahou shoujo. That’s… wow. Seriously. Wow.
And apparently, Kyubey’s rationale for it is that normal human bodies are too easily damaged when they are fighting Witches, so their bodies are “replaced” with shells that are easily repaired as long as their Soul Gem isn’t broken. Downside is, their Soul Gems can’t be more than a 100m’s away from the “shell” in order to control it. Herp derp.
So… doesn’t that mean that Mami could have been saved?
FUCKING KYUUUBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYY (╬ ಠ益ಠ)(╬ ಠ益ಠ)(╬ ಠ益ಠ)(╬ ಠ益ಠ)(╬ ಠ益ಠ)(╬ ಠ益ಠ)(╬ ಠ益ಠ)(╬ ಠ益ಠ)
Man… this week’s end card is pretty disturbing too.
