Also there is no NTR, they were never in a relationship to begin with, though maybe subtly hinted, they were children lol. And he was gone for 15 years. Anything could have happened, she could have married another man she got to know after that incident and it still won't be unrealistic.

Sad that they cut out ch.32. Such a disappointment.

Oh well we got the best arc of the series, Kayo's Arc, perfectly animated so that's all I cared about.

I have no idea what the fuck the hamster analogy was all about. I know that serial killers have a tendency to practice it first on small animals, but that is all i understood. That monologue was directed to Satoru. When did he talk to Satoru?

The opening was nice, seeing Kayo with Hiromi was kinda fucked up even though it´s understandable that in 15 years a lot of shit happens.

Where is Airi? How did he survived the drowning?

This only brings me to question one thing: is the manga that bad or is the anime doing a poor job of adaptating it?

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.


Could you take your fanboy glasses out for a minute? It is making you sound stupid with your denial to one of the most important points in this series because without this ''supernatural ability'' he can't do shit.

It is a plot device because until now it was used for the show convenience or did you forgot the scene when he was arrested?

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...


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 'romance' always leaned more towards Satoru X Airi anyway, IMHO, in both manga/anime.

As for Hiromi being Kayo, that was intentional. BOTH Hiromi and Kayo DIE in the old timeline. Therefore, Satoru was entirely responsible for saving and creating a new family.

Jeez, like half of that episode made such little sense due to how rushed everything has been. I was overjoyed to see Kayo and her baby, I may have teared up. Really though, I had pretty high hopes for this show and it's a shame how far it's fallen downhill since the beginning.

how can anyone still like this fucking stupid show
everything plays out in the most convienient way imaginable(satoru coma and memory loss only ocuur for yashiro not ending up arresred the police being a bunch of retards that can not figure out that the teacher disapearing from the stadium at the same moment satoru went missing show he is the killer)
every characters loves making stupid decisions(yashiro deciding not to kill satoru because of playing with him satoru revealing to the teacher who tried to kill him before that he had his memories back is like asking to be killed)
and yashiro gaku is a laughble unidimensional villain his backgroung story is terrible and he likes to kill little kids just for fun

Difference in the OP was the best part about the episode. Didn't care much about the rest. Not bothered by the "NTR", Kayo stopped being the main focus quite a while ago anyway.


As it is, the start of the series was leagues better than the last few episodes we got. I doubt the last episode is going to be anything special.

I'm interested in Yashiro's past. Guess I'll have to pick up the manga now.

Nice that Satoru survived, I was actually hoping that he and Kayo would get together. But I suppose it was expected that she would move on with her life.

Decent episode overall but I felt the previous episodes far outclass this one.

No it wasn't. There was no romance between them at all.

No Kayo and Sataro, there was a romance that had history and build up. From how he befriended her, to showing her the tree, defending her from the class, holding hands, blushing, sleep together and getting gifts for each other. I mean it was all there for a romance to happen and yet you people say "it wasn't a romance." If the author didn't want this controversy to be happening, the relationship should have been a lot more plutonic and less teasing.

It was an ntr imho and I am very disappointed the author chose this route in the manga.

They planned the opening well I guess.. Taking out Satoru's original self and his 5th grade self. Other than that I can't help but say I saw this coming. 12 episodes to cover at least 44 chapters? Good luck. Maybe they can salvage the ending who know's.. Extremely rushed so far and no mention of Airi. Is the opening telling us how it will go down? Yashiro whips out a pistol on the roof on Satoru? Sigh.

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)


What's to like? It's a series of ass pulls, and yet MALplebs will rate this 10/10 thinking it's the best anime ever created.

She might have had some feelings for him, but he was an adult, so it's unlikely he felt anything romantic for her. He's not a pedo, imo.

lol what's with those "Hated it" votes? Really different from previous episodes. Fake NTR and not being faithful to the source are the main reasons?


Disregarding the pseudo-NTR, probably the main problem with the episode is cutting out most of Yashiro's backstory. Now he's even more of a generic psychopath villain.

actually it is the nonsensical plot that makes satoru plot armored so he can not die even on sittuation the teacher had no reason at all for letting him live and the 15 year skip that is pointless to the story and the super convinient amnesia so the teacher does not get arrested right away
also satoru being retarded enough to say yashiro he has his memories back

Right because all the romance they had in the first half of the show should be disregarded. The author stuck a giant middle finger to everyone who invested into the story.

It's not the author's fault the only reason you got invested in the show is a pedo fantasy. There was a lot more to Kayo and Satoru's interactions than your non-existent romance.

And thus the A-1 overhyped anime cycle is complete yet again. I bet it's less than a year before it happens all over again. Frankly also despite what people say I think they enjoy going through these motions.

As expected many would hate this episode.Well it was okay and quite disappointed that they miss so many contents and has an original ending.Apart that if you see it just an anime it is okay but lack some character development.

Should have known this would eventually get screwed up the moment it was announced to only be 12 episodes. It's still weird though since A-1 had no issues doing this for Your Lie in April and giving it a well done adaptation with the right number of episodes. Not sure who made the final decision in this case but it's definitely disappointing.

Hahahaha, oh my god, this was so stupid. You can always tell when an adaptation gets rushed when nothing makes sense in the episode. I won't defend the manga as amazing literature or anything, but at least it tried to make sense of things (kind of).

It wasnt "BAD" too say but they rushed it ALOT. The Hamster/Teachers story was really rushed, barely explaining his backstory. And why the HELL would they skip Airi coming back?!? They had already skipped Hinazuki coming back last episode, at the very least they could have made her return. Not exactly positive but from what I read in the manga (SORTA SPOILER)


Gaku had remained hidden from Satoru, not revealing himself until later on. In the anime they just straightout revealed him. And was it just me or did he look alot different from the manga?

Dunno, this episode just felt very underwhelming to me.. This show needed atleast 3-4 extra episodes. The teachers return didnt have as much of an impact on me, the mom and her thoughts on the situation was better explained in the manga. There was really good parts that came into the anime like what the mom did to help, Kenya and Hiromi coming back, etc. Just disappointed overall though..

3/5 for my score.

RIP best ship, Kayo x Satoru
I don't understand how Satoru escaped from the car but reading some of the posts, there's a lot of rushed and butchered shit which is a shame; can't say I'm surprised though.
I don't really have high hopes for the last episode but as a non-manga reader, it has potential to satisfy me.

Jesus, the manga warriors are out today. I can't believe people are going to let something in the last 2 episodes bug them after they loved nearly the entire show. Yeah it was rushed in this ep, yeah it had some original stuff in it not in the manga, but damn. I digged this episode and I still absolutely loved this show. Pull your dicks out of your asses please.

The shippers' reaction was to be expected, but it literally doesn't matter, since, y'know, there was never any reason to pedo-ship. Wanting to save her does not equal wanting to date her - and look how happy she is, let her be happy. With a happy family no less, something she so dearly needed.

Still, so much for the manga ending. I knew they wouldn't have time, but this episode in particular they had to rush even the parts they did keep. Yes, it was pretty bad adaptation-wise. So much interesting and important stuff got cut out. I don't mind so much that they wanted to stray from the manga near the end, but at least do justice to the parts that aren't anime-original. This episode, while not the worst thing in anime history, failed to portray what the manga showed splendidly - the internal and external struggles of the characters. It also didn't explain quite a few things that demand an explanation and made Satoru's anime-actions quite weird and unreasonable. Crippled and alone with a murderer in a location nobody knows you're in? Time to threaten him!

And yes, the villain has so much more to him than "drowned a hamster", that's a whole chapter thrown out of the window. Unless they decide to elaborate on him in the last episode, but I don't see that happening.

I still enjoy this anime plenty. I like how Satoru was... ERASED from the opening. Even though I do prefer the original title "The Town Where Only I Am Not" since it made my jaw drop when its true sense was finally revealed in the manga.

Everybody should give the manga a try after finishing this anime, especially if they are disappointed in the ending.

It is not a bad chapter but in the case of this series I think that has been the worst, not transmitted to me what other chapters did.

First, the explanation of the hamster and the spider web doesn't give me the reason of the murderer.

Second, when Satoru recovers memory.....¿could not make a best scene for something so important?, I say, has been in a coma 15 years and goes to remember everything.

And Hinazuki, it would be foolish to wait many years, but it seems to me a low blow that appeared with a child. I say this for the viewer,, they put so much effort into the relationship of Hinazuki and Satoru of children's, although just were children , the viewer doesn't see it of that way and suddenly appears with a baby as telling : fu%k you xD (although I sympathize more with Airi ) . My score will go down and beg to have a good ending.

Sorry for the bad english xD

I liked Satorou missing from the opening. I wish they had stayed a little bit more faithful to the manga regarding Airi and Yashiro but I guess they didn't have the time. Even skipping that this shit was still too rushed though.

Do you think Airi will be somehow mentioned in the last episode? It seems like they forgot about her, and my first impression was she's kinda important character in the series

I'm enjoying this a lot. I'm so happy I didn't read the manga, since it seems that almost all who did hated this episode.

In any case, it's ludicrous to think that any girl would have waited 15 years for a guy who she may or may not have had feelings for.

And kudos for this story to actually portray the waking from a coma more realistically than 99% of fiction out there.
