>>
This is the first time where I think the story would've been better if it had taken place in a dream. This most recent PI felt like it wasn't fantastic or removed enough to warrant taking place in another dimension, and so long as we're exploring Cocona's relationship with Papika it may as well have been in her own head anyway.

I think it was plenty mystical and it was interacting with Cocona in an attempt to stop her from getting the amorphous. I was thinking that she could have been stuck in a time loop or something along those lines had she just continually spent her time with the "Papika"s. While it was a fairly basic concept, the PI in this episode (and then it of detail they gave us on PI in general) really opens up a lot of possibility for what they can do with it in future episodes.

>>
If the sexytime Papika was a creation of PI and Cocona's imagination then doesn't that mean she was a way of Cocona releasing her internal questions about the nature of their 'love' and possible sexual desires? She seemed to understand that these weren't the real Papika and so not her friend. I mean what that Papika was saying might have been questions from Cocona's own mind.
>>
>>149870758
She wanted to kiss a boy but refused sex with a girl.

>>149870759
Their bodies constantly appear off model. Everything about this anime is bad aside from fucking over /u/, but all anime does that.
>>
>>149870567
This is true. The idea was novel last week when we saw like 4 out of the 8 Papis in the preview, but by now it wasn't quite as quirky anymore.

I think another part of the problem was simply that the pacing of this episode was too fast. We barely got any time with each Papi before moving on to the next one. In most cases we barely got through an introduction and then the scene cut. I think the only one that ended up getting a decent exchange of dialogue was the slut Papi. The whole gimmick behind the episode just flew by too quickly and wasn't utilized to its full effect.

I didn't dislike the episode, but it was a lot less entertaining that the premise would have led me to believe. A couple other episodes, most notably episode 3, have felt like the pacing was just a little too fast, and just a little bit too much happened in the 24 minute runtime to really fully enjoy all of it.

So it looks like Papika escaped KKK headquarters in ep 1.

That means Bu must have been KKK and they rewired him at Flip Flap, but he could still be acting for the prior. Maybe he's the reason Yaya and the twins are so good at crashing the party.

>>149870997
>for what dank purpose cocona
>>
>>149870845
I feel like all of the Papikas were manifestations of possible relationships, and Cocona went through 1 by 1 turning them down because what she really wanted was what she already had with Papika. She didn't want a sexual relationship, didn't want to be swept away by a bad boy, or swooned by a prettyboy. She didn't want a friend who she could blow off steam with at the arcade, or gloomy friend she could do dorky stuff with, or an imouto who would make her meals and wash her back and want only for her love. She rejected each and all of it in turn because what she wanted was Papika.

All of the others looked like Papika but weren't. That was important. Despite looking like her physically, they were totally different personalities, and the authentic Papika personality is what she was searching for. Part of the point was that she wasn't looking for a superficial relationship. She didn't want someone that looked like Papika, and didn't want someone that just helped her meet one of her physical or emotional needs, like the boys being male company, or the slut being sexual gratification, or the imouto being a servile little teddybear. Her relationship to Papika goes beyond that, and the motions of this episode helped Cocona to realize that.

>>149870981
It's probably referring to the ideas a few anons have been posting in previous threads. Basically Papika and Cocona are married with children in a Pure Illusion and they don't want it to end because it would mean their happy life there ends along with it.

>>149871056
dude amorphous
>>
>>149870962
I think it's been a recurring problem all season and is likely just a consequence of the director having big ideas and lots of resources to play with. They seem to always try to fit just a little too much into each episode and the result is that slight feeling of things being too densely packed together, and moving along too quickly.

That said, I felt like it worked well for the timeloop episode because that feeling goes along well with the monotonous repetition of being trapped in a looping cycle of menial activities.

>world tree
There's 5 trees in that image, anon.

It was just a clever bit of juxtaposition. The wind picks up and the shot cuts to that as the sound of leaves rustling plays. The particularly detailed brown (so dried) leaves in the midsection of the tree accompany the sound of dry leaves rustling in the wind. It's a neat way of giving the viewer an accompanying visualization of the sound without actually animating rustling trees.

>YYK will probably change sides soon
>Love triangle fucks up twins and maybe some KK leader and get all fragments
>Mimi is complete and does some fucked up shit with PI and the real world
>>
In fact, this shot might be deliberately confusing. In episode 1, Asclepius HQ was shown before a scene with Salt. Now, FF HQ is shown before the scene with KKK. Also there's a possibility that FF and Asc are located in the same block of buildings but are not aware of each other.
>>
>>149870917
Alternatively, the idea of the tracking chip on Cocona would also make a lot of sense. Aside from the twins, Papika and Cocona are able to enter Pure Illusion. It would explain why they let them go at the end of the first episode. Obtaining the amorphous is going to go a lot quicker if Yayaka tails those two and swipes it, like she attempted in the previous episode.

She never thought the boy was attractive, the literal phrase was "A pretty boy, seriously?" As in being in disbelief about it, she was tired of the fakes at this point.

I think it was more complicated then that.
>>
>>149871237
They've been to FF HQ before. It's definitely in the town.

We just assumed up until now that the scene from episode 1 was just a secondary Flip Flap building up in the mountains, but this makes it clear that she was fleeing from the KKK in that episode.

My pet theory remains that KKK and Flip Flap are the same organization and that Cocona is just being played.

Well there was also the overarching theme about what it means when people change, and especially if it's because of you.

>>149871358
Aside from it being perfectly possible to acknowledge someone as pretty without being sexually attracted, she doesn't even say (a) (pretty) (boy). She says "ikemen", so she measn (a) (pretty boy), she's just describing the archetype.

News flash. It was a reverse trap all along.
>>
Yayaka BTFO. Literally useless.
>>
>>149871265
It makes a lot of sense to me given we were told Yayaka can't go open pure illusion herself in this episode and it explains why they let Cocona go back to Flip Flap so they would carry on opening up Pure Illusions so the KKK squad could swoop in and take fragments without always relying on the twins to be able to access Pure Illusion.
>>
>>149871879
Did Yayaka top the demon? Or was it the other way around?

>>149871851
It's probably as relevant as the sources of the beanstalk/tetris worlds' amorphous. So not at all really.

>>
>>149871916
In a literal sense, yes.
>>
>>149871851
Yeah we didn't find out where Yayaka got it from, I think it just served as a purpose to force Cocona out of the Pure Illusion and to allow Papika to save her. It would have been interesting to see what happened if Papika didn't save her, where Cocona ended up though.
>>
>>149871948

She was the one who retrieved all the Amorphous though. I'd be pissed too. This is some fucking nepotism right there.
>>
I think this was the weakest episode so far.
It showed nothing we already didn't know, there was barely any fun with the Papikas, and the only plot-relevant happening could be resumed to the last 30 seconds. Next episode looks really cool, so that's a plus.
It seems in the end they fell into the "PI limbo", since the previous PI ended without they safely exiting it. Makes sense once you consider that Salt Mk.2 is also there.

What was the message this episode tried to tell? Cocona still thinks PIs are dangerous so nothing was solved.

Maybe Toto and Yuyu are an example of what happens when impedance reaches absolute 0. Perhaps Cocona and Papika could end up the same way if they reach a certain level of synchronization? This might not be possible for humans though.

If we entertain the idea that the twins are actually cyborgs/robots, then reaching absolute zero impedance could be much easier for them. But because they aren't human, they are incapable of transforming like Cocona and Papika can.

All these Papikas probably are pure components of the real one though, and the theme of questioning change is ever present in the series. Cocona is afraid of change, she can’t even decide what school she wants to go to and she immediately assumes Senpai being different now is a terrible thing, when she’s evidently much happier now.

In fact I don’t even think Senpai gave up on painting, I think she’s making room for new paintings. She mentioned she’s bad at getting work done both with good and bad weather, meaning it’s an issue inherent to her. And remember that this is japan, not getting work done is terrible.

My biggest question is why wasn't it a Boy Papika.
>>
>>149872809
The paintings are in the trash.

They were good.
>>
>>149872809
Because Cocona is afraid of change. The whole episode was about that.
>>
>>149871058
>because what she really wanted was what she already had with Papika

This might raise some concerns regarding Cocona's willingness to accept the fact that people change. However,
>they were totally different personalities
this is something she was acutely aware of in the case of Papika.

At the start of the episode she is worried about Iroha being changed by her actions in PI/DPI. The difference is Cocona barely knows Iroha at all. She hasn't had a chance to talk to her much, before or after her memory diving in episode 6. The many Papikas showed her that just throwing away some paintings and deciding she can use nail polish doesn't mean Iroha's personality has changed very much. Certainly not to the degree that the pseudo-Papikas were different from real Papika.
>>
>>149872674
Left one is "sewage", right is the name of the depicted tree.
>>
>>149871058
>>149871398
This is one of the most obvious interpretations that we guessed at even with just the preview images to go by. My problem with it is that it's mutually exclusive with the idea of accepting changes in personality that anons have been discussing in previous threads.

If Cocona only wants "her" Papika, then what will she do when Papika regains her memories and becomes the Papika we see in the flashback?

Some anons have complained that Papika herself is an archetype, close enough to a Manic Pixie Dream Girl, and it's true that she has been all about the Cocona (and shards) so far and her own goals, if they exist, have been mostly hidden from us. So while the Papika we know is not as superficial as the other Papi's she still shares some characteristics with them, including the part where she fulfills some of Cocona's needs. That might change soon if she regains her memories and lost motivation.

The other question that anon does not address is: why was Cocona still "lost" after she rejected all the Papis.
>>
>>149872583
I think clinging to articles of the past is part of Cocona's pathology and that was why she overreacted to Iroha throwing out the old paintings.

Still, one doesn't typically throw out completed paintings for any reason. There SHOULD be some degree of attachment to them. This makes that scene feel weird. I'm not totally on board with the idea that we should see Iroha wanting to dispose of her paintings as a positive thing, or that Cocona seeing it as negative is necessarily unique to her.

I feel sort of resistant to the idea that "change is good" was one of this episode's theme, or that Cocona was growing to accept change just because I don't really feel like the change enacted in Iroha was something that Cocona would be wrong to feel uncomfortable about, or that there's growth to be found in coming to terms with it.

Change is one thing, but when a change provokes a complete and total disavowal of who you were previously and an abandonment of all you once held dear and poured your heart and soul into producing, the feeling that something isn't quite right is kinda unavoidable

Those aren't confirmed to be her memories. Papika and Cocona both experienced Iroha's memories remember.

>Iroha wanting to dispose of her paintings as a positive thing

Maybe she sees those paintings in a different light now due to her change of heart about how she felt about the old lady. Part of her life when she was still hung up on the past that don't represent her art but the art of someone else stuck in that mode of guilty thought.

I don't think its all that odd, you read about crazy artists destroying their own works or novelists writing entire manuscripts and trashing the,.
>>
>>149873011
I mean in the same webm:
>why would you ask that
>I mean, love is...
Which means she's seriously thinking about what she feels, but she hasn't decided yet.
>>
>>149872583
The Papikas are Cocona's interpretation of her personality. Each pseudo-Papika was an archetype. The real Papika is comprised of bits and pieces of all those archetypes and Cocona was going through them one at a time, ultimately realizing that it's the collection of those pieces that make Papika fun to be around, not just one specific trait/archetype.
>>
>>149872879
I'm not sure if it was trying to say "Change is good" so much as "Change isn't bad"

I think perhaps Succubus Papika saying that she'd still love her is a key to that. Cocona is afraid that as she ages she is going to change too. She's afraid that what she feels for Papika, whatever that is, is a transient thing that will fade with time or it's just a phase. I think what she learned here is that yes, people change, but no, it isn't always a bad thing. Changes just represent parts of a whole. As such we saw all these altered Papikas who really were just pieces of the complete picture. I think Cocona also saw that despite everything Papika is the one she loves and even though the alternates looked like here, they weren't her, maybe proving to herself that her feelings are more than just temporary things.
>>
>>149872879
It’s weird in both way though. Senpai is clearly shown to be much happier now. Reversing that completely now would be extremely jarring, not to mention the whole “we’ve been removing people’s memories for 6 episodes” thing that would have to follow. And the nails aren’t her ignoring her past, they’re very clearly her coming to terms with it.

Maybe the truth is somewhere in the middle.
>>
>>149872945
More the issue is that if it's not unequivocally good, then the character coming to accept it also isn't unequivocally good. Rather, it's hard to see it as a character growth when they don't necessarily grow, and just seemingly put up their arms and go "c'est la vie" over the profoundly troubling yet unintended consequence of their own action.

Well, that's because that would be totally wrong. Change can be good or bad. I think the argument is that Cocona was resistant to change without finding out whether it was overall a good or bad thing.

Completely agree on the cause and effects of Iroha's change being pretty creepy though.
>>
>>149872583
All I want is a scene like this in passing again.

I'd prefer for Cocona's worries to be unfounded but that would also be undermining the notion that those past traumas are what make us who we are. The entire situation with deep PI and Iroha's change is unsettling, mostly because we're basing our reactions on how Cocona perceives it.

Iroha poured countless amount of time and effort into a lifelong passion only to suddenly turn tail and toss it all into the incinerator. She's happy now, but she was also happy before. Rather than gaining anything, it just seems like she lost one of the things that made her who she was, and a fundamental source of value for herself in the world.

What Salt says later implies that Deep PI and real world are closely related, and "regular" PIs are a friction layer in between.
>>
It just occurred to me:
Cocona looked all around the city for Papika, but why did she never check the pipe? That was the place where they first met, where they first entered PI and where they first slept together as friends.

It's an important landmark in their friendship, and Papika almost certainly went there first since she turned it into a rocketship in the time that Cocona spent in that PI. Why did it never cross Cocona's mind to look there, in the most blatantly obvious spot?

Or did it cross her mind? Did she perhaps know all along exactly where to look in order to find Papika, and deliberately avoid it?

Maybe this whole episode wasn't about Cocona searching for Papika, but running from her?
>>
>>149873377
Sure but the fact that he specifies that deeper level of PI they just discovered can have ripple effects on the real world implies quite heavily that the regular PI cannot have direct effects of the same kind otherwise that wouldn't be a novel observation to make.

You might be onto something. Cocona sees one aspect of the senpai(pre ep6) then sees another one (post ep6) and it terrifies her. In this episode Cocona meets every Papika's "component" but only the whole real Papika feels right for her. Now Cocona just needs to find the real senpai. And then probably the real herself.

They have destroyed regular PI every week by removing the fragments, if that isn't going to have an effect what do you think would? If it did have an effect it would have shown it. If it did have an affect they wouldn't have implied it was novel for deep PI to have an effect. If it did have an effect they wouldn't have made a big narrative deal out of deep PI having an effect. Sorry everything points to regular PI being non-effective on reality in the direct sense. Broken glasses are still broken glasses and injuries are injuries but having the kind of ripple effect we saw today seems to be reserved for if they go through the black door only.

You're reaching here. Iroha has had very little screen time and very little dialogue. What we do know is that she has been struggling with a chilhood trauma so some mood/attitude changes are not unexpected at all, especially for a teenager. I bet she is having the same problem Cocona has with choosing a high school.

No. We saw the school falling apart in episode 5, and it wasn't clear whether the school is just an entity inside the PI. Now in 7 we saw the hole open after Yayaka removes the fragment, but if you watch the episode closely it looks like a lot of time has passed until that happens, and it's also quite possible that it happens because Cocona has given up on looking for Papika.

We don't know anything about what happens to every other PI after they leave.

Some of those are a bit of a stretch but I'll give it to you that there's definitely a mirror motif going on here.

I'm going to have to rewatch the episode and look for more. I suppose it's playing into the fact that that Cocona spent this episode in reflection over the issue with Iroha and PI, and the fake Papikas were sort of a projection of that inner tension.

Nah you're right it isn't entirely clear that they do always collapse after the fragment is collected and removed but it seems the 5 and 7 suggest that. Even so the rest of the points still stand. They have been shown to destroy PI with nothing happening in the real world and all the rest of that post still stands from then on. The only time we have been made aware of an influence on real life is through deep pi and it has been made a specific plot point in the show that deep pi lets them affect reality suggesting they weren't able to before. It is kind of pointless to draw attention to something and point it out if it was always the case.

There was that cut of Yayaka at the KKK base between the pipe rocket and Cocopaps waking up at the lakeside. We never see the real world while they are in a PI, so that scene is meant to tell us they are back home. Note it's also the same time of day.

The ending certainly makes it seem otherwise. rather than finding some sort of solution or rationalization to accept the uncomfortable and unpredictably ephemeral world around her, she just ran back into the arms of her playmate and continued to have juvenile adventures of escapism.
>>
>>149871058
This is completely wrong. Or at least, I interpreted it differently.

This episode was a character analysis of Cocona. It reminded me of the internal monologues of EVA, but more subtle. I'm actually certain that this was "Cocona's PI," even though we've been guessing for weeks which one is hers. Episode 3 establishes that Cocona is empty, and this episode demonstrated her world. Empty and devoid of life. You see this fact emphasized when Cocona goes about her daily life like normal, as if nothing has changed. Why? Because she's used to it.

Even Uexkill wasn't there, which means Cocona lied and doesn't treasure anything. The only living thing there was the fake Papikas, so does that mean the only thing Cocona treasures is Papika? I think that you're only led to believe that; in reality, Papika wasn't there in Cocona's world at all. They got separated in the very beginning because they weren't in sync, those fake Papikas were part of the PI. I think that the fake Papikas were actually sections of Cocona's psyche. The delinquent was Cocona's rebellious side, as in playing hooky and hanging out with Yayaka. The hikki Papika was Cocona's reclusiveness and loneliness; ojou Papika was Cocona's dignified side. The purpose of this episode was to show a bunch of different sides of Cocona we didn't see before. In fact, if its revealed later that Cocona actually had a big sibling (representing her imouto self) it would prove my theory. Even the succubus Papika was just a manifestation of Cocona's sexuality.
>>
>>149874231
The show isn't over yet and Cocona's indicisiveness is a main theme throughout, so that's not getting resolved until the end. But if you definitely want a resolution to Cocona's dilemma in this episode, it's that she stops chasing the aspects of Papika and then the real one finds HER.
>>
>>149874258
I was buying it in the first paragraph but it loses me on the second paragraph. Overall I prefer the first guys.
>>
>>149874231
She's making the most of the present, anon. She isn't going to let her insecurity about her future dampen the fun times she has with Papika. When the fun times must end, I think she will be ready to accept it and move on, finding new fun times to be had in other ways.

>>149874258
This is not mutually exclusive. If the aspects of Papika come from Cocona's mind (I think the end makes it pretty clear that they're all imaginary, and not the actual Papika being broken up somehow), they would be heavily influenced by Cocona's own thinking, and people know themselves the best.

Top left is a part of the school we haven't seen before. Explains some of the weirdness.

>>149874326
I think the important thing is that the hole that appears in the end of the episode would have led to an even deeper section of Cocona's PI. I can only assume it would have been disastrous if Cocona fell into her own tramautic past, which is why every character made a big deal about how dangerous they are.

I'm definitely not sure on the fake Papika's though, so you're right in that regard.

Didn't really look like that. In fact, what it most looked like was when Papika and Cocona got sucked up into the eclipse in episode 4.

They were all very much Papika.

But they were those facets perceived by Cocona specifically. She probably injected her own bias subconsciously which is part of the reason they never delivered the same feeling she gets from the real Papika.

There will always be inconsistencies when it comes to the perception of a person or even an object. Papika does not perceive Cocona the same way Cocona perceives herself. Cocona does not perceive Papika the same way Papika perceives herself. This is the root of all character conflicts. You can never truly understand the mind of another, yet you are an essential part of what makes that other person unique. They wouldn't be the same if you were not present to perceive/interact with them.

Oh that's what you took from all this? I took that line and all the different Papikas (Papiki?) as a way of getting it through to Cocona that Iro is still Iro and she shouldn't feel aprehensive about entering PI since even if people do change, the "core" of that person will still exist. Hence why Cocona could still be friends with the Papika horde despite them all acting different.
>>
>>149869351
