This hit too close to home.
Time to go outside for a bit.
>Person that finally sees their errors- Void
>Person who willingly took their own life- Reincarnated
This system is pretty whack.
>whore got BTFO again
Feels good man
Never understood why gramps went to hell while Chad "make fucking way to the younger generation Ojii-san" got reincranated.
Or why murderous, jealous doctor went to reincarnation.
>Jii-san was a bully in school but I think that's no reason to send him into the void.
>Decim's autism caused him to fuck up. Machiko was just pretending to be a cheating slut if I got that right.
>Absolute right decision 10/10
>Absolutely right again. She was a bitch.
This episode made no sense what so ever.
why was that bitch mom even murdered? her manager could've just dropped her ass ages ago.
And why did Otaku kill himself?
And why the hell do you judge two random people? the first episode was understandable, so did the bowling one. the rest were unclear as why the hell did they match up those people.
He just thought he would go to Gensokyo
I kekd so hard when my tablet did that
>They died at the same time.
You do realize that every minute theres countless people dying all over the world. Right now theres probably someone dying in Africa from Starvation, in the middle east due to war etc. etc. etc. the chances to randomly pick two random people from the list have have them be Japanese is so miniscule its negligible.
And even if theres some "Japanese only arbitraring" why those two? two people who have nothing to do with each other? completely different background with no common denominator what so ever.
Furthermore, why pick an Arcade when the Otaku obviously has the advantage, forcing them to intervene and "cheat" to make sure both remember.
I can go on... the system is fucked up.
>She was murdered because she was a cunt,
If I would've killed every cunt I met, I'd probably be facing several hundreds if not thousands of life sentences by now. being a cunt is no reason manager could've dropped her ass ages ago plus filed for an charges assault for money and getting back at her.
>and he killed himself because the PS4 had no games and he didn't have anything else planned.
no valid reason then?
>Furthermore, why pick an Arcade when the Otaku obviously has the advantage
it's a roulette, they don't get to pick. The woman would've probably won at darts or bowling or something. The game itself doesn't matter, it's more about the behavior of the person
>You do realize that every minute theres countless people dying all over the world.
1.8 people are dying every second to be precise.
Not going to Quinn Decim is nearly impossible.
>>no valid reason then?
He was a worthless NEET, which means he was always 2 seconds away from suicide. One kusoge too many was all it took.
Their floor is probably just for nips, other losers have to deal with all the Ethiopian children.
>mfw an all-knowing entity can create life but can't decided who gets reincarnated and who gets destroyed for eternity
great you understood the point of the episode so well
>people still think their actions during their lives matter
>people still think winning the game matters
a roulette? really? its obviously set up - just look at it.
OVA - let the Chad get cocky because he's good only to be decimated by Pro-gramps
Ep 3 - Bowling... just like when they first re-met.
Ep 4 - Arcade, an Otaku's battleground.
its never a fair fight.
And yet, only Japs go there. always Japs, always in couples. suspicious.
I for one am eagerly awaiting an ISIS Vs. Syrian rebel episode.
or starving marvin vs. anything else.
Great reply mate. sure showed me with those amazing arguments.
Hey guys, I got an idea.
What if the void is actually the world were Nona, Decim and the others live?
Think about it, they could be woken up in a similar way as Nona did to work on the death skyscrapers and "live" in that world.
In this case it would make perfect sense to send this episode's woman to the void, since her request was actually that she would do anything to be with her children again. If this was correct then this would be the only way for her to be reunited with them, after they die that is, since reincarnation doesn't have to mean that the "you" with your conciousness and personality will meet them, since you would actually be another person instead of the one they once knew.
With this theory, the old man going to the void in billiards would also make more sense, knowing that he wanted to live no matter what, while the young man just complained that his circumstances were shitty and that this affected his choices, thus making that Decim gave him a retry at life to have an opportunity at having a better life.
If this is true, then I wonder what would be his reasoning behind the couple at the first w
The one I'm really wondering is the first couple if this is true. Did he give the reincarnation to the dude due to his desire to be father and void to the woman because it seemed that she had no more business pending to earn a reincarnation? I'm not completely sure.
that's because this is an anime series. Hell they probably have a shitton of customers coming in and they only show us the interesting cases where the game fits the couple
as far as I remember, they said that the outcome of the game is predetermined, not the game itself
You do realize that both would have gone to Heaven if she didn't lose it back then?
She was being careless all her life but got lucky and found some happiness with the life she lived. But she was just a bitch.
He was a huge faggot that started hating his mother and then projected that on the second wife of his father. In a way he too was a bitch.
That episode is justified. And I am going as far as saying that everything until now is right.
I'm going to marry miss Nona!
Not If I do it first.
But that would make sense, they seed out the souls that are pure/good enough to deserve reincarnation, whether or not you did anything bad in life doesn't matter, what matters is if your soul has the potential for being an asshate or not. Because if that soul gets reincarnated, under different circumstances, it might easily be evil.
It's not like people who get reincarnated are better off, they still die just the same it's just that their soul gets reincarnated into someone else but that really doesn't matter for them, it'll be a different person regardless and they'll still be dead. There's not that big of a difference between getting voided and getting reincarnated, it's death all the same.
Of course, this whole point of view faulters when you consider that little shits like the NEET apparently are good enough to deserve reincarnation because Madhouse can't stop sucking that otaku dick for money, so whatever.
He was sorry that he commit suicide. This is all his fault during life.
She was a bitch to people but given her background it was justified. Her fault during life.
Then afterlife she killed the neet as soon as she felt she is losing the game. This is why she got punished and he was sent to heaven.
What you wrote is true but you still don't follow it.
I think because they were both selfish, albeit in different ways.
>why was that bitch mom even murdered? her manager could've just dropped her ass ages ago.
I was surprised by this too. I was completely expecting her (ex)husband to be her killer after the flashbacks about getting her ass beat.
>And why did Otaku kill himself?
Obviously when his biological mom told him that she wished he was never born it had a huge impact on him. He was blind to the fact that he had a loving, if not blood-related, mother-figure right under his nose. He didn't notice until he died.
But yeah this episode was super depressing to me
because I want to move onto the behind-the-scenes episodes already god damnit
Well here's another interpretation for you. While Decim describes the results as Heaven or Hell, he's also said he only does so because its understandable to most people, when the actual results are reincarnation or oblivion. Decim also purposely misleads or doesn't explain things in order to get that feral reaction out of people in order to judge them.
However, void = bad, reincarnation = good is only valid under the assumption of religions that don't really feature reincarnation at all. In Hinduism and Buddhism, which are the two major religions in which reincarnation exists, reincarnation is actually bad. The objective is to leave behind your earthly attachments and desires and to be sent to nothingness where pain can no longer reach (In Buddhism's case anyway, Hinduism is usually rejoining with some sort of oversoul)
This interpretation is mostly solid, though this episode seems to shake it up a bit. And it will depend on where the show heads for it to remain valid(If for instance a major point becomes whether Decim unfairly obliterates people, i.e. that the void is 100% concretely the bad option)
In your example, the old man lived a full life and had no regrets, so he was sent on, while the young man full of attachments was returned. Same for the doctor and woman.
