THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The time paradox actually makes you think in this episode. Also, it appears the episodes are still not going in chronological order as this is about Watashi meeting her Assistant.

Using old time equipment and going back time?! Wow. Creepy dog, bananas, and assistant... they are hint to this arc? Many Watashi were also created. All because of the fairies, who want "them" to make more cookies.

So much Watashi! Very nice. Interesting how one can time travel by slipping on a banana peel. XD

So many Watashis, I want them all.

This episode mindfucked me, what's wrong with all those dogs, and what happened to assistant? I don't know, but it was great. Endless eight done right.
And since I like Assistant very much, I know I'm going to enjoy next episode.

"watashitachi" has never been more true. This episode was damn trippy. Waiting for next week to see what's actually going on. Also, after this series finished airing I will try and rearrange the episodes in something that resembles a chronological order
I want Rambo in a mecha-suit with a laser-chainsaw gun that fires nuclear warheads, fighting the love-child of Predator, Alien, a group of Bangladeshi terrorists, and Satan. (Actually that would be a pretty sick show) - StopDropAndBowl

First episode where I really had to think about it. Wow, great with all the time paradoxes. Haha, reminded me a bit of Steins;Gate. In most animes, time paradoxes are usually frustrating (do I need to mention Endless Eight? >.< [I did tough through it though XD]), but I think Jinrui wa Sutai Shimashita pulled it off pretty well! :D I'm also pretty sure that the show is going backwards now, with the hair-cutting last episode as well.

This. Show. Is. Amazing. <3

Possibly the funniest quote in the entire series so far. xD

Anyway, great episode. Like many others, I couldn't help but be reminded of Endless Eight (which I personally liked a lot), but this time paradox has a completely different feel to it. Slowly figuring out what was going on throughout the episode was tons of fun, while Watashi handling her 'tachis so calmly was just priceless. Very curious about next week's ep, especially since Assistant is my favorite character along with Watashi.

Now that's how you handle a groundhog day-esque time loop.

Not surprising to see the tradition of non-chronological episodes continue. I must admit that nonlinear narative works very well in this anime.
More cerebral episode and no ubiquitous satire this time, but that is not to say this was any short of great. In fact, it's probably my favourite episode so far. For the most part, it had a rather unsettling feel to it which I loved.
Those whimsical, creepy perma-smiling fairies seem pretty powerful and I think we've seen only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to their nature. Ah, I wish this wasn't a one-cour anime.

Just gotta say the show needs to give the fairies as much screen time as possible. The combination of creepy/cute/funny is what I love about the show. They also are just little kids with god like powers if you think about it. I mean they trolled Watashi just so they could have more candy XD

Well, we got to see a lot of Watashi this episode... literally. Also, the fairies are awesome - they create a time paradox, using bananas of all things, just so they can have more sweets made for them. That is such a convoluted plan for such a shallow and selfish goal - I love it.

I wonder... what author of novel or scenario took before writing this.
Still I like how coherent it is while being illogical - with chronology going "backward" and that time thing here.
Probably series will end with Watashi becoming mediator :)

But at least fairies got their sweets so happy end we have!

So we're now further back on the timeline, before Watashi met Assistant. This arc certainly seemed promising, and may be the first to satiate my expectations for the show after the initial arc. The diminution of sweets is certainly the most representative of the decline of humanity.

What's with bananas and time paradoxes in anime?

The Banana being the time trigger was hilarious. Who would have thought a banana could be used for time travel? And that you have to slip on it to work? Lol.

Possibly the author was thinking of "Time Slip", a term sometimes used to describe something like what Watashi was experiencing.

It's like that game where you keep going back in time to multiplicate yourself and do coordinated actions.

This was a bit unsettling. (the were fairies kicking a head, and her clones omg) I feel like everything is connected, like it's not actually going backwards in time or something involving the timeline.Maybe I'm over thinking. Great episode though, probably tied as my favorite so far with Y's arc. 5/5

The 1st time Watashi eat the time slip banana,she encountered the 2nd Watashi in the forest and slip away to the time when she is about to enter Grandpa 's room.

The 2nd time she eat the banana and in the forest,she encountered the 1st watashi and she had suspicious of the dog that appear at the forest.She slip again to have encountered the 3rd? watashi and fuse? with the 3rd watashi(time paradox fix?)

The 3rd time watashi had meet with 1st and 2nd watashi and become a new development?

The 4th time watashi had meet with a bunch of Watashi and she vaguely know what is happening and ask the fairies,the fairies give a "new model" time slip banana.

The 5th time she vaguely know the assistant wears Hawaii t-shirt may due to talking to the future watashi(6th-xxxth)...

From here,I think the memories in the forest(happy land-yashashi kukan)is vague like a dream and all the watashi know what happen except the 1st ,2nd and 3rd(which still wear the watch and puzzled by the happening).
The dog may also being feed the time slip banana(for experiment?),so the dog is multipled in the town.
The reason why watashi can't recognized the face of herself in the forest because it is a dream like space that cannot perceive other people correctly.
Watashi is not cloned,she is being brought from the same space-time again and again to made sweet for the fairies and she only vaguely remember.
The 1st ,2nd and 3rd will also return accordingly after making sweets without the memories of it...

Watashi just means "I." Since the novels are in first person, and her name is never mentioned, that's what fans started calling her.

She did sign her haiku as 'Watashi' though, and is also in the credits as that.

Indeed, I think we might witness the birth of new Melancholy of Watashi Okashi. First narration by main and oh-so-ironical character, then non-chronological episodes order and finally nani-ka okashii time paradox.
Also, so much for escapism, just like Haruhi wanted to avoid summer ending.

THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
This episode was very annoying and dragging around instead of giving out its point it extended through ridiculous amounts of copies of Watashi whom is a very beautiful character and through that character gets repeated as though to abuse the males of their views of her on many formats. Truly the creators must THINK WE ARE DUMB! We cannot comprehend a mere 15 minutes of one point only amend to another 10 minutes of ridiculous CRAP repeating itself makes it very ANNOYED to say the least on this episode. I have gotten a 3 point explanation as follows.

Human Decline References


The first one in the spoiler
with the guns reminds a little of the Wild West. A previous lifestyle of the humans when they were not so advance past the year 2000. Watashi’s expressions there were quite nice.

The second reference would be the chariot in the spoiler
a obvious reference to Rome. I can also say a little that the road alluded to “One Road Leads to Rome” or better yet to destination which ultimately did.

A 3rd reference can be seen in the spoiler
under the form of that watch which was used long ago during human’s evolution. It was of the first watches out there. It was a little bigger than that a little like the spoiler
would be more of the size.

The abuse of fairies


That is the main problem of this episode’s plot. Seems the Fairies have insane amounts of powers that is shown to be abused and moreover not really known what to do with since they seem to put it in fruits of all things. Now sub categories follow.

About the beginning, the start was obvious in the spoiler
much to the Fairies getting rather excited at the bin of candies it showed rather well Watashi’s expression at them. Especially when they did consider cloning Watashi whom she never wanted but they do anyway.

About the first time shift, the first one in the spoiler
occurred the moment Watashi took the banana. However it did happen right away. Instead it shows CLUE 1 in the spoiler
think of the ball as Watashi being bounced around.
That is a key to show that they will bounce around Watashi cause they need to perfect the flavor in the banana to taste like it since it’s made artificially from their magic and I assume the tree for it is long gone so none will grow anymore. That being said we are rather nicely shown the following woman,

Whom along with the spoiler
has some rather nice characteristics from the beauty point of her face to her composure and eye color. She is quite enticing as a MILF let’s just say. So what exactly happens after is in fact in the spoiler
showing that Watashi gets transported to another world time line with it being to the taste of the Fairies obviously with the harmony of the tress being distanced equally. That being said it shows that the Fairies got selfish and cloned Watashi in order to get her powers of making sweets. In doing so they readied a furnace to bake the sweets with no chance of doing it since they are forbidden that knowledge. So time being short and all. A banana was made and it seems it makes your slip when you eat it and end the time shift.

About 2nd Time shift, thing is it makes another time shift in the spoiler
essentially getting you back to the original time you were out. Except it was not. It made Watashi come back before she even saw her grandfather. 2 things happen there.

1. Clone of Watashi in the spoiler
absorbs into her and at most I assume that could be a trigger to forget things or assimilation of sub dimensional particles from her clone into her since the time frame she is in nullifies that clone.

2. Watashi gets in shit in the spoiler
since she already has the watch and her grandfather accuses her of stealing. That is proof of a FUCK UP of the Fairies where they did not put the watch back with the time shift. Another showing of their power abuse being imperfect and causing shit to Watashi. Moreover due to banana? WTF?

In doing all this a re-summon in the spoiler
of Watashi being back exactly at that part she was in with the same lame copy of her and the same lame furnace setting. It was quite ridiculous that the taste is trying to be prefect of a banana at the expense of MASS ABUSE of Time/Space effects within a fruit of all things. RIDICULOUS! Comes the end in the spoiler
one can see the absorption once again of the clone into Watashi as though she also started to forget and once again Time Shift being over the space cancels out the clone itself. Since its nature is of he fairies world.

About the 3rd Time shift, happens in the spoiler
which further repeats stuff like the dog being the assistant and Watashi getting closer to it only to amend back at nice girl that is still nice to see again at different angles.

However it turns out much UGLIER than before with Multi Pin-balls of copies of Watashi in the spoiler
at rather ridiculous amounts. More than before. The real difference is that the fairies were nice enough to show out and explain WTF is up really. Turns out like I explained their stupidity and MASS POWERS abused got them wrongfully to input a Time/Space shifter that gets you into their Lala Land of a sub-dimensional Fabric. That apparently they give out another banana and it let’s you out of there. Which is exactly what happened.

About the 4th Time Shift, the last yielded out INSANE amounts of Watashis and this time with their eyes in following,

Along with the spoiler
it got totally stupid not to mention it was all for the fairies wanting more sweets due to indulging themselves in the bin and becoming rather gluttonous of the candy. To finally amend to doing this in order to perfect a banana’s taste? RIDICULOUS! Makes totally no sense other than fairies not knowing what to with their powers and input in a banana by mistake. While I do admit in this case it might better to not have them around. They are all trouble. Sure it’s nice to prevent deaths of some humans due to them being in accidents. However this episode showed how much trouble they can be with one invention of a taste for a fruit.

All this to get to assistant due to that fruit. WOW! Mass abuse of Time/Space. A major force and certainly Steins Gate can be mentioned to show it’s a powerful force.

The assistant


A rather easy setup that got dragged a little too much.

At first, in the spoiler
the obvious dog reference here would most likely amount to partner as dogs were always as an animal. Rather interesting how it was shown at first the dog being illusionary a little with the Oasis type of mist.

However by the end in the spoiler
it became apparent that the dog really meant as a reference to the assistant. Whom is pretty OK however the episode dragged on too long for this IMO.

I'm trying to think some crazy theories about this episode here...
(don't expect to be totally logical)

Watashi saw the dog turning into Watashi at the beginning of the episode.
What made me think, if isn't this what also really happen when Watashi slips on the banana peel.

I mean, she slips on the banana peel, go back in time AND the dog transforms into Watashi.

So all that Watashis that Watashi see are in reality the dog transformed into her.

In the last loop, she find Assistant and a lot of dogs.

Why? A time paradox maybe.

Something happened that made the Watashis become dogs again.

Like what happened with the watches, maybe Watashi fusing with itself was the fairies trying to fix it(like somebody said) and that could cause another time paradox (why not?).

And I bet the fairies are gonna try to fix it the way they always do.
Because obviously the dogs can't make sweets.

I'm not sure about the order the loops were shown, looks like some are sorted.
Or maybe there isn't even a correct order to them.

About the hawaiian shirt, I think the last Watashi that saw the Assistant told another Watashi about it. And somehow she remenbered about only the shirt.

That or the Watashi really decided how Assistant would be, and the fairies did.

But...
If the Assistant is really the dog, and if that is why he can't talk... that would be so awesome.

Nope, they don't clone her, simples twist the time to allow her to be present in the same place more than once at the same time.

Dude... watch more closely. That is not a ball, is a skull.
Yeah... exactly what you thinking.

My friend, when you fall under the VERY WRONG impression that the faeries were cute? Innocent? Well-intentioned? Pure?
These naughty little things have always been evil.
Did not realize until now this obvious fact?
