Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai episode 10
What in the unholy hell is going on here? This twist is seriously messed up. Ryosuke, whom we all thought was the hero, has now become the villain. I’m not sure how to deal with that. It feels a little bit like all the episodes before this one were kind of pointless. He trained, defeated the enemy that held his friend hostage, only so that he could become the villain himself? How strange…
So we pick up where we left off; with Ryosuke’s return to the ‘normal’ world, the world where he was born and raised. Now, the girls kept it all a secret about how he destroyed the balance after he killed that man, but another one of those Death Reapers showed up and told him about it anyway. I think the impact would’ve been better if he were to find out on his own, which shouldn’t have been that hard, seeing as there were plenty of clues. He had no TV, mobile phone, computer or anything that would allow him to find out about recent events whilst he was gone. All of it was taken by the girls, hoping that he would never find out about what was going on outside.
It all sounds too complex. The protagonist, a once mighty pervert that wanted to do all sorts of things with all sorts of women, has now been reduced to a suicidal moron that has given up on life. He seriously doesn’t see the point in living any more. Besides, that new Death Reaper made it very clear that Ryosuke cannot be saved by Mina’s incredible energy anyway.
Now, this is what truly bothers me most of all; I just finished watching Natsuyuki Rendezvous yesterday and I was very disappointed by the ending. I cannot help but worry about this anime. There are only two episodes left, yet there’s so much left to do, and none of it will get done with the protagonist being suicidal and all. I’m keeping my fingers crossed on this one.
