…. sigh… Satoshi. I know that feeling well. Indeed I do.
As much as I hate to admit it, the resolution to the Juumoji case is absolutely brilliant and made well up for the past two “mysteries”. The slow buildup over the school festival, masked underneath the veneer of comedy and drama, all led to this mystery’s main theme, “expectations”. That feeling when everything snapped in to place… goddamnit, KyoAni. Goddamnit. I wanted to… ughh…
Truly, what I feel towards this can best be said as a combination of both Tanabe-senpai’s disappointment and Kouchi-senpai’s frustration. Tanabe-senpai’s disappointment towards Kugayama’s waste of his skills mirrors what I feel about KyoAni making… their recent works. While Kouchi-senpai’s frustration, while not exactly the same, is pretty much what I feel when KyoAni makes an episode like this and unleashes on me. It’s as if the production team is trying to send a very subtle message to people like me, who wish for their talents to be much better utilized.
Well, what I really want to say is already said by Satoshi this week too.
Just replace “Houtarou” with “KyoAni”
Ahaha… hahaha…. haha……….
