I'd really enjoy this if they wouldn't make it so blinding obvious who the killer is.
9 episodes in and the MC still hasn't figured it out.
This just makes him look like a retard.
The only reason I know who the killer is is because someone on 4chan told me.
I might have figured it out myself by episode 7 or 8, but fuck off. You guys didn't even know you just read the fucking manga.
I haven't actually checked if i'm right, just in case it's a false trail and i spoil myself. But they drop in certain scenes that are just unnecessary and therefor obvious foreshadowing.
didn't read the manga, but i knew it in episode 1 (or 2, not sure). Granted, I'm very good at predicting a plot, because I'm into the whole theory behind story telling and read a few books about it/seen a few lectures.
The only reason you would know this is because there are only a handful of adults in the story and all but one of them are clearly told by the author to not be the killer. The MC doesn't have that convenience.
>The show needed a few more red herring characters
This is what it comes down to.
It wouldn't be that obvious if there were more male adult characters that get as much screentime as sensei.
just like I told you ep10 will have "this is not my car" but not as a cliffhanger, they end the episode with the also completely skip Kayo's return
also, ep11 has even fastest pace, at the end of the episode he gets his memory back
and NTR in the anime confirmed
It's not only that, unfortunately it's just an obvious choice from a story telling perspective. Have you played 'life is strange' for example? Same plot, same murderer. And i don't think one ripped the other off. If anything, sensei needs to be the red herring.
I don't know how the manga developed, but the anime has gotten incredibly silly.
The premise is good if not amazingly original and the earlier episodes were very well done, but the last few have taken the shine of it.
Having her mum just appear out of nowhere and take Kayo and that's the end of it, zero foreshadowing. I think it lost any claims to 'masterpiece' around he second leap.
