If this week’s episode was any indication where the story’s about to go, we’re going to be in for a bumpy ride.
As if the story didn’t already drive the point home, I don’t know how much more I can take of it constantly reminding us of Megu-nee’s untimely death. From the flashbacks of when she first founded the club with Rii-san to the somewhat creepy opening scene that hints at what she’s been up to ever since she sacrificed herself, it really makes you wish that we could still see Yuki’s projection of her. Because as pathetic as it might sound, I sort of miss seeing and hearing her character.
Sort of a side point, but after taking a closer look at all the changes in the opening sequence, Taroumaru’s shot during everything is one of the few that hasn’t changed yet. Based on just how grim everything else in the opening has become though, I can’t help but feel that our little furball has something ominous waiting for him somewhere down the line. Then again, maybe his scene will forever stay as one of the happier ones throughout the constantly more depressing opening.
Oh boy. After Miki reaffirmed Rii-san’s suspicions about why their school was as well equipped as it is, I could already hear alarm bells blaring inside my head. Because just as Rii-san herself said, it wouldn’t be too uncommon for newer buildings to have some of their amenities, but it is a bit strange to have them all in a building that’s not normally designed to house people for long periods of time. I mean, when was the last time you associated a school as a sustainable place to live?
But lo and behold, it looks like the truth has been finally revealed – and it isn’t a pretty one. Like, we’re talking about Cold War levels of bad here. Biological weapons capable of causing a pandemic? Plans in place to ensure the survival of the human race in the event said weapon somehow goes out of control? Even if you try to avoid thinking about just how many people something like this would have had to go through before even being developed, it’s a little disgusting knowing that there were plans already in place for something that ridiculously dangerous. Because from the sounds of things, it was always just a matter of when the thing would be unleashed.
With the situation deteriorating quickly, it feels like the story is about to kick itself into overdrive. From the flashes of what can only be a zombie Megu-nee and the revelation of a super weapon that somehow went out of control, I’m sure none of our girls are going to be able to keep still for much longer. Luckily, it looks like things are going to calm down a bit because of Yuki and it probably couldn’t have come at a better time.
