Next week is the finale of the Urara arc? Wait… there was an Urara arc? And here I’d thought we were in a single large arc that dealt with Jupiter in some way. Either way, it does seem like a rather abrupt conclusion might be on the horizon for Urara’s ‘arc’, but hopefully that will mean we can finally get back to the mystery behind Dokurou and the various questions that continue to need answers on that front!
So it seems like Kayoko was actually the daughter in law, having married into the Shiratori household. Like Urara, she felt loneliness, being isolated from others amidst a large and powerful family and ending up possessed by a devil. Is there a distinction here? Devil, rather than runaway spirit? Is there significance in the sudden departure from the usual term? At the very least, this is probably the first time we’ve seen a ‘runaway spirit’ or equivalent take human form and speak.
I guess the question this week is in what Keima has suddenly realised – why did Urara want to grow up quickly and how is that connected to her loneliness? I’m not entirely sure myself, but I would speculate that perhaps she believes her grandfather would pay more attention to her if she could become an adequate replacement for her deceased mother who he seems to long for so greatly. It would fit with her desire to quickly become an adult and wanting to use her mother’s makeup at the very least!
tl;dr: @MoombaDS – Some answers, more questions, and an endless paradise! #TWGOK
