Where did this come from? An episode that was actually good, and not merely because of hilarious deaths! Somehow, Another came from out of nowhere to become the best romance of the season.
The thing I like best about them as a couple, I think, is that Kouichi actually acts like he’s interested in her. There’s none of the usual pretending the male has no nefarious designs. He daydreams about her and keeps staring at her during class, the hallmarks of adolescent romance. Despite the ridiculousness of most of Another’s premise, this particular area is unexpectedly believable.
He even gives her awkward compliments on her looks.
Also the Mei fanservice is pretty good, I like her outfit.
It seems from what the father said that Kouichi has been to the town before. I guess his memory has been erased? Considering his mother died when he was born (due to the curse?) I’m guessing that he’s the one who’s dead.
Was it just me, or did the voice acting for the aunt when she broke down terrible? That was some really fake crying.
On an unrelated note, I’ll be skipping the last episode of Last Exile: Fam since it was a summary of the original show. I didn’t feel a summary was necessary at this point, and I hope they don’t just make our old heroes swoop in to save the day…
