ERASED episode 09
The protagonist’s homeroom teacher actually seemed to have helped save that poor girl from that dreadful mother. It would almost make me want to change my opinion of that guy. I won’t. There’s something off. I’m positive it’s him.
I won’t celebrate prematurely. Kayo seems to have been taken from her unstable, abusive mother and entrusted to her grandmother for the time being, but the problem isn’t solved yet. Kayo may have been saved (for the time being), but the killer is still on the loose and there are plenty of other kids that he can target. Satoru may have saved one girl but there were other cases during that time that he has to focus on now. Even if he manages to save those two other girls, he still has to find out who’s behind it so that the culprit doesn’t go after other kids.
The worst part is that Satoru’s mother, whom supposedly can almost read people’s minds, is completely oblivious to the fact that she may have been helping a killer by making his ‘hobby’ a little bit easier. Even she must’ve thought that there was something wrong when all that candy appeared out of nowhere, dispute him claiming that he yearns for it after giving up smoking.
I’m also a little bit worried that Satoru is going after the victims that he knows of and that he won’t think about the possibility of having changes the timeline, thereby forgetting to factor in the possibility of there being more and/or different victims now that he’s saved one of the girls. Now would be a good time for him to talk to his mother.
