This episode was the high point of the series so far. Such a great scene at the temple.
After Yuuki’s dad is killed, Yuuki finally gains the motivation to become god.
And wow, Yuuki sure can fight when he feels like it. He dodges and stabs one of the murderers with his knife, and uses the other as a human shield. Yuuno makes a timely arrival, casually slitting the third man’s throat.
With his mind made up, Yuuki decides to kill Yuno, who calmly accepts her death by him as her future.
They kiss next to Yuuki’s father’s corpse in the most romantic scene yet. Yuno is crazy, but you have to admit, she is certainly loyal.
To compare this to the manga, the part after the father’s death was fabulous. But the father’s repentance in the show didn’t seem quite as authentic in the TV show as it did in the manga. I guess it was due to the time constraints of the show. Yuuki’s father is a lot like Yuno in his portrayal: he jumps back and forth between extremes, from the man who abandoned Yuuki and murdered his wife to a man whose biggest dream was to go stargazing again with his son and wife.
I think I would probably attribute Yuuki’s father’s failure to redeem himself in the TV show to the voice acting. Somehow, his voice just makes him sound like a slimeball. Everything he says seems phony. Which is a shame, because if I remember correctly, his death was one of the most powerful parts in the manga.
Freud would have a field day with Yuuki’s choice of lover.
You’re fine with two dead bodies belonging to Yuno’s parents? Really?
Yuno in the rabbit costume was hilarious. She’s cockblocking him from fulfilling multiple functions.
