Are you not healed, /a/? Is this not why you are watching this?
I want more episodes like this.
and by extension double voidconfirmed
MATCHY confirmed for shit tier waifu and total slut.
>sticking your fingers into her holes and feeling her heartbeat and nervousness
is this what sex is like?
Why is her eye broke just at the very end when we already know what was up.
What does that matter? They were already dead when they came in, so it's not really like they could do anything about it.
Works well enough as a 'win' because they both get re-incarnated.
I want to taste her tongue
I thought that too, because they made it seem like the surgery was a big deal. Like "yo man she's with the wrong crowd she had plastic surgery". Like, sure it's a big deal, but it looked like people who do this are looked down upon. But well japanese people look down on everyone and everything, so it wouldn't surprise me.
>yfw rap battle is one of the roulette options
If plastic surgery wasn't SHAMEFURU DISPLAY, they would have laughed at the guy for thinking she was a completely different girl, then would have whispered into his ear. Here they just looked incredibly uneasy. Her leaving school early is another hint this is looked down upon.
So Shigeru heart was always with Chisato his heart when dokidoki for that girl/likeness..
Was his confession for Mai true since he probably doesn't remember what she looked like (does he see that flashback?) and the final shot showed her true face or was it out of guilt/pity?
Would he be voided if it was?
Eh, I'm not sure that she intentionally changed her face to look like Chisato, she wouldn't even know what she'd look like grown up. I think was just to make her prettier in general.
I doubt she'd go through the trouble of trying to assume what Chisato would look like, especially considering she didn't even try to seek Shigeru out after the surgery.
>especially considering she didn't even try to seek Shigeru out after the surgery
This is so fucking sad. I can't imagine how she must have felt when Shigeru came up to her in the bus.
Ah no, I meant laugh at Shigeru.
The flick wasn't the same, the other girls hair was moving from when she turned. She never tried to be the other girl, she would even know what the girl she hadn't seen since childhood would look like now..
It can be assumed that Shigeru liked Chisato when they were kids, but there was no confirmation as to whether that was really the case or not.
For all we know Mai could have assumed that he did like Chisato, which is why she changed her face to look like Chisato's. We're going by her assumption, since there could have been a possibility he wasn't going to like her (physically). There's also the fact the they've known each other since they were kids, so he knew what she was really like. He probably really felt it because he realized how much she truly loved him.
So who's going to win the Decim bowl?
This is bullshit, I'm watching this for drama, edge and shitposting.
I don't want healing, comfy, feels or any of that faggotry, keep it in the SOL moeshit.
From AOTS to almost dropped, next week better go back to the basics.
>Shigeru and Mai are reincarnated as Chisato's twin children
>sweet vanilla twincest
I hope there is more to this show than simply showing cases after cases of humans send to that place.
Also I stop given more thoughts to it than necessary, otherwise I won't be able to enjoy the show at all, because it has too many holes.
here's something I've been thinking about. Now that we know there isn't someone who is required to go to the Void, I'm thinking that the old man was grinning at the end because he probably did some real horrible things we didn't know about.
pilot don't think too much about it
probably went from heaven/reincarnation -> void/reincarnation -> all who cares about the death game it's just a backdrop for people to remember stuff
It's going to be like Shigofumi. First 4 - 5 episodes about episodic but then suddenly focus on X and Y.
Well, I can't recall it totally, but didn't he take part in the war?
So it's a given he must have done some cruel things. But about what was he talking to Decim then? It's not like he doesn't know about the pasts of his candidates.
Those faggots Bones introduced an awesome character, but showed little to nothing about her.
I still feel annoyed that we never got to see her and everything else in action in the Heaven's gate.
>childhood friend wins
>they're already dead
god dammit Japan
Why is Decim so fucking based?
>dat foreshadowing at the end
Reminder Buddha hired a sociopath to be an arbiter. Buddha is retarded.
do you think Shigeru and Mai had enough time to get lewd on the sofa?
I really do wonder what the authors want to tell us, the audience.
In what kind of religion/philosophy Heaven equalizes to Reincarnation and Hell to the Void?
It's quite the misinformation those Arbiters give their candidates.
And this whole setting really only works for people who died in accidents.
If you are expecting your death (e.g. terminal illness, old age, suicide), you will have to have full fledged amnesia to not get a clue what is going on.
Hypothetically speaking, if I were to end up there, knowing what the circumstances are and what their "hell" and "heaven" stand for, I would influence the outcome so that I end up in the Void.
Also they better show what those Arbiters will do with deceased people who simply refuse to take part in the game.
>It's quite the misinformation those Arbiters give their candidates.
That's probably the point. Heaven and Hell is easy to understand, no one would question that concept.
Also it seems like the arbiters can take away specific memories. That guy in Death Billiards died a more natural death.
Maybe they even cover up stuff like suicides in future episodes. All three games so far had variety to them.
Eh, he doesn't seem like a sociopath, just extremely inexperienced in displaying human emotion, but considering that it's not really part of his job I don't see a problem with it.
It seems like he can still understand that these people are going through a stressful situation, and doesn't want to cause them any more trauma than is necessary for the game to work.
Didn't he know the situation he was in?
Anyways, as I said, if you give just a little bit of a thought into the show, the whole concept is kinda ...inconsistent.
Why did this episode end up so peacefull?
WELL IT SURELY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT THEY WERE SIMPLY PLAYING A GAME WITHOUT GETTING PAINFUL EXPERIENCE.
That said, those games surely are not chosen randomly.
Put those 2 into the darts game, and we would have seen a nastier episode.
Decim said in the pilot that the game wasn't really chosen randomly, but it was the game they needed to play in order to fully realize themselves and their connection to each other.
The darts one so far is the only one that actually hurt the players, and that was somewhat necessary since the couple was so dysfunctional and had a lot of things to hide.
I think someone said earlier that they took some liberties with the whole 'void' thing, in that you don't actually become nothing, but rather you're stuck in a void with your negative emotions and consciousness still intact.
>there are people who haven't watched King Pin
It's not about not understanding. What is there not to understand with Reincarnation and their kind of Void?
Ok, I accept the idea of Arbiters having the power to give you a full amnesia or erase specific memories.
So basically Arbiters tweak their candidates in such a way that the candidates have to face their own skeleton in the closet.
Hm, whatever, I still don't agree with the idea of Heaven-Hell in this concept here at all.
I've been in a bowling alley that had it's own bar.
>5 minutes for a date
how old is that motherfucker, and has he ever hugged a woman?
What game would you guys end up playing that could bring out your skeletons in the closet?
For me, any game would do I think, as long as I am put in a situation where my inferiority is revealed to others.
Forcing deep burried sentiments to the surface through more traumatic events...
lost 3 childhood friends because of it
>talk for half a second and die
>only get to spend a short time together and get reincarnated
>chances that they'll ever meet in their next lives are practically almost 0%
>mfw when these young kids don't even know that DOTA was nothing but a funmap of Warcraft 3
>mfw there will never be a WC4
>mfw Arena shooters are dead
All goes down the shitter.
>Implying they didn't get reincarnated together and find each over in the next life
Well, I don't really have a choice, don't I?
Reminder you had no childhood friends.
>billiard was designed so that the old man wins
>darts was designed to evoke mistrust
>bowling was designed to simply be fun with a weird twist, no pain, so the two players could bond.
>implying everything isn't pre-determined from the moment they die.
>I was the childhood friend
>I lost to the transfer student
Why is she so perfect?
my childhood friends all got boyfriends
Lost all but two of them in the transition to high school.
one is a little further away than I would like, but we're still in contact, and I'm still regular friends with the other and we meet up all the time.
She's going to become one of the puppets.
There was nobody my age in my neighborhood
I get the feeling he's actually non-human, or just some kind of spirit thing.
Mainly due to the fact that Onna still has normal human eyes while Decim and Nona both have crosses.
>tfw lost all my friends during middle school/high school due to social anxiety
i haven't talked to them in years. pretty much all of them became normalfag party goers, maybe it was for the best.
I knew a girl but god knows what happened to her.
My guy friend who i was close with i didn't see anymore because my mother pulled me out of the same school, he turned into a huge pothead lad so i dodged that bullet.
i'm kinda disappointed that, including the prequel oneshot, out of all 4 episodes so far, death darts is the only one where people actually got hurt, and that made the game a lot more heated
i hope the game hurts them in the next one
If they really are going with the "masks are directly symbolic" thing, it certainly ruins part of the ambiguity while adding in a secondary factor where the judging the judges is more important for watching the show. I also think allowing both people to go to the same place kills part of the tension where we've come to expect a tough decision between two people.
It also sort of retroactively makes Death Billiards seem stupid. In fact, due to the plothole, it can't be treated as part of the series. I'm hoping that something later changes how we perceive the masks and indicates they don't really mean anything specifically.
She is one of his puppets
Decim is Geppetto
>yfw when they won't meet up in heaven spending the rest of eternity together
Never seen a bar with a bowling alley, only the other way around. Does Dave and Busters even have a bowling alley? Bowling alleys are a huge investment so it's not really that common.
I'm unfortunately reminded of Psychopass S2. At least this looks fine and was meant to be funny.
