UN-GO episode 08

Alright, I must admit that I prepared myself to be disappointed, but the episode wasn’t that bad. Some of my suspicions were actually spot-on. You can see this as either good or bad, it’s good that I was in the right, but it’s bad when your viewers can predict important scenes ahead of time, especially when the show revolves around mysteries.

Like I said in my previous post; either that prisoner or that girl standing behind him as special powers, powers similar to Inga. That girl that stood behind him, also known as Bettenou, is like a deity who has the power to turn people’s words into reality. That prisoner, who likes to call himself a novelist, put him under some sort of hypnosis with the use of Bettenou’s powers.

Kazamori gave Rie, before she entered the facility with Izumi, handcuffs that could give a mild shock, rendering the hypnosis of the shocked cancelled. Both Rie and Izumi were both put under hypnosis by Bettenou, as they had predicted. They were instructed to arrest Shinjuurou, who had been accused of murder. That’s why Rie received those specials handcuffs, as Shinjuurou’s hypnosis was broken because of those cuffs.

It didn’t take long before Shinjuurou managed to put all the pieces together. There was only one real murderer, so it was up to him to find out the murderer’s identity. He used the facilities unique security system, which was to use real-time tracking of all the inmates. All inmates were equipped with a unique code in the back of their neck, allowing the security guards to be able to track them at all times.

It seems that Shinjuurou’s code used to belong to another inmate, an inmate that currently has no code. Find the inmate without a code and you find the one who murdered that so-called director. Shinjuurou quickly put all the pieces together and landed on one of the three actresses, a mother who planned to blow up a politician with her homemade explosives in the hope of ending the war by doing so.

It was quite the episode, but like I said; it’s not a good thing when your viewers can predict key scenes. It’s the first time that happened in this show though, so it’s not that big a deal. I’m wondering what they’re going to do next, because the anime is nearing its end.
