Kyoukai no Kanata episode 05
Yet another good episode from yet another good anime. I seriously believe that many other shows could use this as an example when it comes to (secret) organisations. They don’t scheme out in the open. Everything is still as mysterious as ever. That’s how it’s done!
I just got over last week’s episode and my Goosebumps were almost gone. I think it’s safe to say that watching this episode didn’t help much. I’ve got Goosebumps all over again. We all knew that Mirai-chan would join their strange club eventually, even before she saw Akihito lose control. It was one of those things that everyone could see coming.
However, I think the Nase siblings, Mitsuki and Hiroomi, are actually quite glad that she did. Now they can both keep an eye on Mirai and Akihito without too much of an effort. We already knew that those two were being monitored “for the greater good”, but it has to be a lot easier now that they’re all together in the same club.
I also found the idea of Mirai losing her license to ‘hunt’ quite troubling. How exactly does a person decide? Where does Izumi, the eldest of the Nase family, get the idea that she can just forbid someone from hunting Youmu? I am fully aware that there’s an organisation that pretty much backs them, but it’s still quite odd that she has the ability to do that.
Now, I’ve decided to skip that part about Mirai’s photo-shoot and the fact that Ai-chan has posed naked in front of a camera several times. I just want to go straight to the point where everything is pretty much hanging by a thread. Mirai needs her income, Akihito needs his space now that he’s lost control again and figuring out the Nase family’s operations is too hard for me to even try right now.
