Whew, the amount of hate just increased. Glad I'm not a manga reader in this case, but gotta agree that the teacher's backstory was pretty poor. Didn't expect Kayo having a baby though.

I was never rooting for romance in this show so the fact our protagonist is not going to get with anyone does not bother me. With all I heard about this episode I thought it would be something awful but this was still a decent episode. Though I can see why a few people would be hating on it. Still next episode hopefully we get to see justice served.

I didn't red the manga so I didn't have the expectation that many had but I'm a bit disapointed about that last ep and I felt it was rushed. I'm not bothered about Kayo and Hiromi because ppl usally change a lot during their teenage years and I could easily see how hiromi could have seen satoru as a model to forge his character. I'm entering into speculations but if hiromi had became a bit more like satoru I could see kayo falling for him...

Anyway the thing that bothered me the most is that we were too disconnected from the Satoru inner thoughts compared to the rest of the anime. All the thought process from having no memories to full memory recovery is absent and that feel strange and that's why I say I feel it was rushed. We get a few hints here and there ( like the kanji he can read or his ability to draw) that a lot is going in satoru's mind and hidding it all away feels like something is missing.

Dammmm well this episode is fu**** up all together. Too much to in one episode I think, would have been better if it had 24 episodes.

Those OP changes though! Satoru not being in it was so cool. They sunk that ship so damn fast it's unreal. Simple put Himori should've still been murdered when they were kids (that's a joke btw, some people are taking this super serious). As a anime only viewer I could feel stuff getting skipped which sucks but it wasn't too bad. This showdown is going to be amazing! The OP kinda gives away what's going to happen but I'm still so excited to see how it unfolds!

It's as though just because the NTR isn't something to criticize that all the other flaws are to be ignored now lol. People wanted the "why" of Yashiro's backstory, and they got it, but it was pretty underwhelming; now he's even more of generic evil villain. And some are also saying this episode was pretty rushed.

Also, I don't understand the argument of why anime-only viewers would be somehow better off than the manga readers in terms of salt levels... both groups of people are seeing the same pseudo-NTR scene.

Yeah I'm sorry but no. Just no. They didn't even show Yashiro's past.. and instead of Airi showing up to destroy the film, it was Yashiro. Um?? And don't even get me started on the ending. Satoru gets back his memories just like that, the fuck. I..

This was a fucking mess. A mess. 1/5

Does anyone know where abouts I can pick up the manga from before this episode?
For this episode, it began with chapter 32. But, like said above, it would be better if you read the manga since the beginning, since they've skipped a bunch of scenes.


Well I might aswell considering that would be 2/5ths of the manga anyway, that just puts it into perspective of how rushed the ending really is.

That's not mediocre. It makes total sense for Airi to be the one to do that. After all, it was Airi who showed Satoru there were people who believed in him, and also taught him to believe in himself. She also taught her to never give up on his dreams (that line about dreams is exactly what unlock his memories). Airi has been key to his character development all this time. Even in the anime (even though some of her scenes were removed),


and still people shipped Satoru with Kayo? i always felt he would end up with Airi, and this just proves it, they should have end together (not sure how they end in the manga tho)

Honestly, i am not so mad at skipping stuff or cutting Airi...
but getting his memmories back so fast ._.

Also, Director confirmed in the Interview that he is Hinazuji fan, no wonder he cut Airi out :p

I still fail to understand how what happened is NTR.


It isn't. Trolls just like to claim it is and comment on how people "must be salty now". Who gives a fuck really. But what they did to the Killers backstory: hahahahaha. It wasn't terribly convincing in the manga either, but this takes the cake.

Disappointing, 11 episodes already and no answer or any type of explanation about how the plot device 'revival' works.
Also how he got out of that car? The teacher killed anyone during Satoru coma? Where's Airi?

Looks like this series will have an average ending with this rush and so many questions which wasn't addressed until now.

The Cuck Without Me, by Hinazuki Kayo

When i get bigger, big enough to go somewhere by myself, i want to cuck my friend who's far away. My friend who's in a coma for 15 years. The friend who saved my life. I want to leave him with nothing but pain and sadness. He will have no adults, children or classmates, only his mom. I will **** his friend when i want to **** his friend, i will cuck him when i want to cuck him and visit him with his friend's baby when i want to. I will then think about the cuck i left behind. Kids go to school, like nothing has changed. Adults go to the office, like nothing has changed. His mom eats like she used to. When i think about the cuck without me, i can't help but to laugh. I want to cuck my friend.

LOL

The thing is that the revival thing is not supposed to be explained that much since it's a fantastic element. It just happens.

I haven't read the manga and thats why the ep makes so much sense to me. I even watched it twice!

In the beginning, the backstory was extremely dark and shows the mind of the young psychopath. Felt kind of like a trip to his psychology and why did he kill.

The whole episode had too many moments that made me cry. Starting with the OP with Satoru completely "ERASED" from it and threads over the girls' heads. And ending with the "I have my memory back".

I will explain how did it make sense to me now....

First, none of us can wait for 10 minutes, let alone 15 years. Seeing Kayo happily married to Hiroomi was so nice and heartbreaking at the same time. But keep in mind they both wouldn't have any future without Satoru's hard work to save them both. They both got killed by the same killer at a young age. So now in this time line, they got married to each other. I kinda imagined her married to someone else but not Hiroomi. But the thought that this baby wasn't going to be born without Satoru makes me wanna sob.

Second, Where is Airi? yes, all of us are wondering where did she disappear? I
kinda have a strong feeling she will have a great scene in the next ep. A scene that will break all of our hearts. But until then lets rationalize here, Satoru didn't even meet her in this timeline. She wouldn't know who he is. In fact, he didn't have any memories of the time before his last revival. which brings me to my next point.

Third, Satoru forgot completely about his revival and all what he has done to save everyone. He thought it was his own fate neglecting the fact that even Kayo's fate was to get killed. He got to save people and change their fate but he was the one harmed. He lost his memory as a result and didn't know why was he able to draw well nor the fact that he's a manga artist. Never mind that, he didn't even know why was he able to read Kanji.

Last, the sudden appearance of the teacher. He introduced himself to Satoru as if he didn't do anything. Why you ask? Because he knew Satoru lost his memory. Let me forward to the moment the teacher was pushing the weal-chair, Satoru felt the terror he had when the teacher was driving the car. The teacher was careful he even wore gloves and asked Satoru to press the button so his fingerprint would be there. He planned it ahead. Now Satoru remembered how did everything happen.

Lets all hope all that rehab time will save him from this unfortunate situation.

A strange change of pace for this episode. It was like unpacking a rubber raft out of its tiny box.....after its unfolded you wonder how the heck it all fit in the tiny box. My favorite part was the thread running from the wheel chair up to the sky at the end. Death flags have nothing on Death Webs.

So people are seriously getting butthurt about Kayo ending up with Hiromi? Granted, I don't think it makes much sense either but we've missed out on 15 years while Satoru was in a coma; goodness knows what kind of things happened in that time. But yeah, this wasn't an amazing episode, but it was interesting in its own right. I'm just struggling to see how this can feasibly end in one episode without feeling really rushed.

I was expecting this episode to be a trainwreck from all the comments, but it wasn't really. The time skip was indeed jarring, but other than that this seemed to be on line with the previous episodes. I feel as if the drop in quality actually happened after episode 4 or 5 and since then it never went back to that excellence.

About the NTR thing, I find the fact that there are plenty of shippers of Satoru with Kayo more disturbing than the supposedly NTR that took place. Like, all their interactions occurred when Satoru was 29, didn't they?
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

I have just a few words: Yashiro/Nishizono is a son of a bitch.
AAAAAAAAAAH IT WAS SUCH A INCREDIBLE EPISODE. Future have changed so much... Kenya, Hiromi, KAYO AND HER KID <3 I didn't expect that Kayo would marry with Hiromi. It's like WHAT, WHT HAPPEND WITH SATORUxKAYO? However, I'm happy for her. She deserves live.
In sum up, I have a lot of feels with this episode. Anger, helplessness, happiness, excitement...

People are more pissed at the amount of development Sataro and Kayo had that they didn't end up together. If they aren't going to get into a romantic relationship, don't bother teasing the viewers with this romance shit. The blushing, the long stares, holding hands and sleeping next to each other. Arthur slapped everyone in the face with that Hiromi bullshit relationship.

First off, the NTR whining is BS. Satoru wanted to save Kayo, not date her. The manga and at least I thought the anime always seemed to be push Satoru X Airi anyway.


But seriously wtf, why would they change Airi not being the one who shows up to destroy the tape...

Lmao! I see why people are pissed now. I wasn't expecting any romance out of this (because anime generally sucks at it), so I wasn't bothered by Kayo moving on. The main thing that kind of annoyed me was how Killer-sensei showed up out of no where, and how abruptly Satoru's memories came back. It was all a bit rushed. And, as @devinder pointed out, there were maybe one too many tropes. Time travel was fine, but then it threw in a coma and amnesia.

It wasn't that terrible though. I might lower my rating from an 8 to a 7 depending on how the last episode goes.

I hate the fact that this show got as popular as it did, yes it is overrated but does it justify all the hate it's getting?

I mean, I haven't seen so much hate for an anime since sword art online and that's what 4 years ago?

I'm not even talking about this episode, ever since episode 1 there's been people bashing this show, is it just because of the popularity? Is it because it has a higher ranking than your favorite animu???

I mean sure, I don't want people giving it 10's just like that blindly following the hype and I do not think it deserves a top 10 ranking but people are literally hating the show because of popularity and little faults in the show giving it a score of "4" (Top reviewer apparently) Based on MAL, 4 scores a "Bad". Telling me unexplainable plot device, here and there a rushed episode, a NTR that isn't even a NTR, an opinionated episode 11 and manga readers criticizing every thing that isn't in the manga deserves a 4? and 490 people agreeing with it? ok lol. If that's not blind hate then I don't know what is.

Also, wasn't this an anime only discussion, why is everyone bringing out the manga on this discussion? Don't see what's in the manga, see what's in the anime and judge it for what the anime is, not what's been left out and getting salty over it. Personally, I haven't read the manga and I can gladly say I will give this anime an 8 no matter the ending.

(also glad they didn't fully adapt the manga, because man a few panels I see on how satoru is, makes me want to vomit on his character)

1. I guess Yashiro saved him, because, you know, he wnats to observe him or something. It was just a prank, he never wanted to kill him.

2. Don't know, would like to know too.

3. Cut, as it seems.


Read chapter 34. They skipped some explanations.

Revival isn't a plot device, nor is the point to explain it. If that's what you care about, you miss the point of the show. If you want that explained, go watch discovery channel or some pseudo-science documentary and learn real science because it doesn't exist for a reason my friend.

Bullshit. The mangaka is not a good one, hence why he doesn't explain how the revivals work and how the butterfly effect has no place in the story. He just wanted an interesting story dumbed down so that the readers could get invested without getting too technical.

This was a story of twists and turns. There was a romance but the author wanted the twist to be big enough the readers were surprised. Hence why he picked Hiromi (the trap) out of all them. Too much teasing by the mangaka left this to be a major problem in the story, hence why people are pissed.

the hamster thing was so weird but it really showed how insane that teacher was.

the opening animation was amazing. crazy how they removed satoru from every scene.

OLDER KENYA WAS SO HOT OMFG. i'm sorry, he was hella awesome.

when he saw his homeroom teacher, i wanted to scream at him to regain his memories and get the hell outta there.

i believe the next episode is gonna be "ohh, satoru regains his strength and fights his teacher!"

since episode nine, this series has been decreasing in score for myself. i do like it, however it is very inconsistent and predictable. i don't know how i feel about this ending. there was never any explanation about revival, how satoru got it, etc. there's no way they'll have time to fit it into the final episode. dissapointing.

overall, 2.5/5.

Let me get this straight. Sensei got hamsters to take care of and just randomly decided to kill all of them but one? Huh? And because one was looking for salvation by standing a top the body of one his siblings......he decides to keep it as a pet?

Where is the motivation or the "bad thing that happened" in his past? You can't tell me he randomly decided to turn out like this right?
