This anime is such a mess.
>well directed show
The mystery is finding out who the killer is but they are literally YELLING IN YOUR FACE WHO IT IS. I mean seriously, they couldn't make it more obvious.
Kayo's room wasn't as bad as I thought it would be
the thing with the candy in the glove compartment is so heavy handed that it makes me think it's a red herring because this shit has been way too good so far for it to be so blatant like that
time will tell but that would be heart breaking if it were true
>girls in his class are all over him
>tells Satoru how he gets close to people, girls in particular
>glove compartment full of candy
>"only little kidnappers like you guys would know of a place like that"
These complaints are clearly whining for the sake of whining. Nitpicking on little things.
This show demonstrates how to tell a story (even though the story itself has many flaws).
I am not watching many other shows this season, but I think Grimgar serves a very clear contrast to this show, where it just does so many things wrong (yet I can't help but to come back to it every week because damn dem girls are fine.)
>Menacing shot of sensei's face when compartment opens
>Finally they're going to reveal him as the killer
>Bait and switch
Did they really think the average viewer is still so dumb to not realize it's him
That was also pretty dumb.
>dude kicks a box
>leaves a perfectly shaped shoe print on the box
>Satoru recognizes that shoe print as the same ones at Hinazuki's house
Reminder that more people were invested in Bokumachi as a romance story than a thriller and the NTR plot twist becoming common knowledge killed the show's possible success.
I've never seen something fall from near mainstream to non-existent so quickly.
The time travel elements in the story are a mess and are full of so many paradoxes, inconsistencies, and holes it's pointless even analyzing it. That whole aspect feels like it was written by a middle schooler.
It's hilarious how nobody is picking up on the self-insert lolicon element of the story. The mangaka literally made himself as the main character, and wrote a wish fulfillment story about him going back in time and having romantic relationships with little girls. It's so hilariously transparent. The scene where he is laying in bed with his mum and that abused loli adds another fascinating layer to his sexual fantasies.
But I have to say, I greatly enjoyed episodes 2 to 4, when he first finds himself in the past and shows how he responds to that situation. It's a common fantasy many people day dream about, but one that has always been particularly strong for me. It was handled interestingly, even if there were parts which were somewhat implausible.
In his situation, I would have simply used my knowledge of the future to convince a bunch of people I have a special gift, manipulating them into believing I have been granted authority directly from God, and then use my new status to direct my followers to protect those girls.
It's never established why he keeps his time traveling a secret. Is there a reason why he couldn't just tell his mom? It wouldn't be hard for a 29 year old with knowledge of the future to convince another adult of something like that.
I'm enjoying it, so that's all that matters. Even with the fucking "a candy bar ruined our family" bullshit.
Also, I'm pretty sure the show assumes you know who the killer is at this point.
It's a solid 6 or 7.
people were drawn in by having a loli to protect, she was an adorable little girl who was in horrible danger and most of the story revolved around saving her.
After she was safe the author just could't think up anything to top it since all of the characters were boring
Yeah, because my mal score means so much. It really is important.
The people of the internet have the right to an objectivley correct score that I give out.
It has really good direction is all, first few episodes were entertaining but it's definitely ran it's course.
I really liked it when I first watched it, but after thinking about it it isn't that notable.
It's funny how it'll still be top 50 on MAL after it ends though. Funnier than Your Lie in April still being top 50.
Global events that could prove he is a time traveler are very unlikely to change, regardless of the butterfly effect meme. And don't say he wouldn't have paid attention to global events when he was a child, because in the story he goes to the future and goes back a second time. He knew all the key dates, and even though he was on the run from the police, he had plenty of time back in the future to look up key global events. MC is an idiot, let's face it.
The mystery aspects could use some help and it has some stupid moments like the candy bar but for the most part it's a well directed show driven by good characters with nice presentation. It's a solid 7 and easily the best thing this garbage season.
Why do you faggots care about what 13 year olds on MAL are rating it? You're crying about a show because of fucking middle schoolers.
the OP also has a moment when the window/glass shatters on the roof confrontation, if you stop the killer's face is entirely visible. of course it's a blink and you miss it moment, but still.
I only care about seeing the airi end animated, the anime removed most of her aspects from the story but as long as she's the last one satoru remembers when he drowns then it'll be 100% sure it'll happen, could care less about anything else
