Phi Brain episode 23

Geez, watching Phi Brain really does feel like a chore. And it’s strange too, because this week’s episode wasn’t even that awful. Sure, the topic hasn’t changed one bit, but there were some nice little developments that might please some of the viewers.

We’re almost there, people! Just two more episodes and the first season is over. The few episodes leading to this may have been boring, but Kaito has finally been freed from his dreadful future. It started out with Anna and her paintings. Even I was a little bit surprised that Anna could see Kaito’s future through her paintings. However, it’s like Cubic said; “change some of the variables and you change the future”. Nothing is certain, because the future is what you make of it. Kaito should know this by now, because why else would he continue to solve all these puzzles, knowing that he could very well decline. What is POG going to do, shoot him in cold blood? I don’t think so.

Anyway, this week’s puzzle was given by Gammon, Kaito’s old friend. The objective was to call out numbers in order for beams to come out of the wall. They were supposed to use those beams to climb to the top. However, they can’t both stand on the same beam, because that would be against the puzzle’s rules. It was a boring little puzzle, but it helped Kaito a lot, apparently. He finally managed to get rid of his bracelet, Orpheus, whilst keeping those unique powers of his. I guess that he’s finally awaked now, seeing as he was in full control and managed to turn the game around in his favour. Kaito discovered a few weaknesses in the puzzle, and that led him to victory whilst saving Gammon from getting crushed by those beams.

Luke didn’t like it. He was mad when Kaito finally discarded that godforsaken bracelet. That was the point during this episode when I finally started enjoying myself. Sure, the scene probably didn’t even last a minute, but I enjoyed watching Luke squirm like a little girl. Dance monkey boy, dance, huh? Not Kaito, not anymore. Not a moment too soon either, because I was really getting fed up by Kaito and his unnecessary obedience to him.

Just two episodes left. I can make it. I will make it! Watching Phi Brain has really been dreadful. It’s not because I’m not a big fan of puzzles. I think it’s more because of the fact that other shows, better shows are ending as well, but that Phi Brain, a show that has been doing a lot worse in ratings, is granted a second. Perhaps that’s what caused me to dislike the show more than normal, who knows?
