physics223 said: Other than Tatami Galaxy, there's probably Arakawa, Rainbow, or House of Five Leaves. But IMO the best among them is this.
Is it me or are those other shows dipping a bit towards the end whereas Tatami Galaxy just gets better and better. Those others are still good though, this season has been great (Summer is gonna suck T_T)
Actually the only problem with Tatami Galaxy is that the comedy is getting lame for me around episode 4
I notice that Ozu cannot enter the room while Watashi can go out and touch the Cake.Ozu even place the cake Outside the room and I remember the Cake appear in many episode also.Does anyone got any clue about this ??Ozu is feeding Watashi in every arch?but why?
I was going to give this anime a seven and conclude the show just to conclude it. This episode seriously just fucked that. I have never felt this emotion before. So much confusion made sense with such a simple explanation. This might just be Yuasa's best work ever....
man,, this episode is really frustating...
it was correct that this episode explain the entire story so far,, but im deeply frustated seeing how "watashi" was so hopeless inside that tatami galaxy...
and before i really understand that,, he suddenly got those thick beard XD

Again, another brilliant episode. The concept of parallel universe here is amazing.
Just like what I said in the previous ep, things are starting to wrapped up well.
And I thought the episode where the bearded Watashi first shows is the last time he'll appear
but no, he appeared again and this time, it's his own point of view.
Can't wait how this will end. :D
So basically it's not like he relives any point of time (though he made comments about things happening again.. not sure) but they are parallel and only perceivable by the him in the tatami maze.
And that 1000 yen in each room must be the increase in fortune teller's payment whatever that means. Maybe it means every time he lets go of the chance of accepting a life, the 'stakes' become higher and he can't accept anything that's worse than the prevous one. In the end he gives all of it away and just wants to get some life he can feel the real one and his own.
My stupid brain still can't think of what the moths symbolise. Something that can freely travel from one world to another, can brighten your life and makes someone as accepting and tolerant as Akashi freak out? I hope they spell it out to me in the last episode.
Even more things came together in this episode - I had wondered what seeing the bearded version of Watashi back in the 5th episode had meant and now I have my answer. The story of this series has been well put together and these explanations of the various little phenomena that we have seen are clever. I have high hopes for the conclusion.
Okay. I had some trouble finishing the episode, as I slept through the first part of it. It was me to blame, as I was under a warm comforter watching an anime series that mostly had dialogs and had a serene atmosphere around it.
I finally finished it after I got up from my bed and onto the chair in front of my computer, and here I am, having my mind fucked by this anime.
Very emotional episode. Beautiful Culmination of the previous episodes into the now established Tatami Galaxy.
The NHK like solitude and despair really hit home with me. Definitely a worthy successor, and I've come to the conclusion a few episodes ago that this was with a certainty a 10/10 show. Even if the last episode was paint drying I still think the strength of the previous 10 episodes would merit the 10 rating.
This episode made me kind of sad. Believe it or not I can kind of relate to the main character, and ive been in similar situations as him but I feel like I fail each time and waste my years. Anyways, enough of that shit.
This episode was great. So much was learned here, especially that there is a whole universe of tatami mat rooms.
This episode is where everything clicked in place and I had a huge smile plastered on my face as it kept up the revelations. This is definitely a brilliant turn out and the title of the show is now more fitting than ever. The way that this episode connected everything else was well thought out and very satisfying, like a huge pay off from a hard day's work. I got a huge kick out of how they tied together Watashi's 100,000 yen collection to the backpack that he finds randomly placed in his room for that scrubber. Also when he tries to communicate with the Watashi that was neck deep in the pyramid scheme, that was hilarious. There's so many more examples and I might have to revisit a few of these episodes to take it all in later on.
On a thematic level, this episode has to be my favorite. I really like when Watashi mentions how each room has a color that gives it its own identity despite never obtaining the "rose colored raven haired maiden life" in any of them. It really adds onto what Higuchi said in the previous episode about how there really is no such thing and that life is what you make of the experiences before you.
It was also slightly depressing how much I could relate to Watashi's blight of having too much free time. That was like a giant kick in the nuts, reminding me of how uneventful life in my room was once upon a time.
And also just a huge LOL @ how they used Johnny for that sexual symbolism. With him on the wheel all exhausted, sadly that too was something I could touch base on.
