THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
This Hatori girl has some guts. She's trying to get out of there by herself even though it seems impossible.
I'm starting to also really like the design of that world as more features are revealed, in particular some parts that has realistic features. Looks like Shizuru, Zourou, and others made their way into that world too.
Glad to see Hatori and Sana understanding each other better.
Quite the trippy visuals Sana, Hattori, Zouroku and Sanae experienced in Wonderland. Shizuku too before the rabbit hole got her. XD Seriously, giant crane games, escalators, monuments of Sana''s life(including the Zouroku forehead kiss) you name it. Nice to see Sana and Hattori have a teary, huggy chat regarding her mother too. So we're close to wrapping this up then, now escape and return home all!
Wonderland is a weird place. Zouroku and Sanae saw memories Sana had. Shizuku joined them, but she fell in a hole. That was amusing. It's nice to see Sana and Hatori understanding each other better. They have a heartwarming moment. Finale next week. Lets see how they escape and return home.
Events progressed almost entirely as expected this episode, but that is far from a bad thing when it comes to this series. If nothing else, this episode did finally make me care about Hatori, so fair play for that at least.
Sana and Hatori are having some "heart-to-heart" conversation about what they should do if they trapped forever inside the Wonderland. But then comes when Hatori talk about her Mother and the atmosphere became emotional.
Beautiful episode, both the conversation and Wonderland itself. If this wasn't an adaptation, feels like the two arcs should have been reversed. But the alluded ending by the preview is appropriate too.
This was a surprisingly (relatively) deep episode that covered (in a decent way) a very complicated topic. It wasn't all that thought provoking or emotional, but it didn't fall on its face or fail. I still consider tackling a tough topic and not failing a massive win. I can pretty much see how next week's episode will turn out already, so unfortunately I don't think the finale will really win me over unless it manages to pull of the most emotional thing I've ever seen.
Hatori and Sana had a real heart to heart and it was a very dialog heavy episode overall but it did a great job progressing the last piece of the story forward. I love the time spent in Wonderland and I wish the anime had got to this part sooner and spent more time on this portion. Anyway I'm interested to see how the anime finishes up next week.
I was watching this show just to "complete" it up to this point, but this episode changed my opinion somewhat, loved both the trippy parts and heroines opening up to each other. If only they sped up the pace a little bit earlier, I think I would have liked Alice & Zouroku a lot more.
Well, there's still the final episode, I hope it'll live up to this one.
