Yukki was not his usual whiny self this episode. It was refreshing to see him taking charge for once (even if he was following Yuno’s script). The way he shows up at the last minute with him and Yuno all over each other and that cool guy jacket was amusing.
I don’t think Yuno’s script really helped much…
I did feel (and I recall feeling the same way in the manga) that the battle together with Eighth came out of nowhere. They skipped a lot in between, and I felt disoriented when we reached that point. It would have helped to include Yukki allying with Eighth, so we could feel that he actually betrayed her.
A master politician, he has mastered the art of crying on demand.
I’m kind of curious how city councils work in Japan now. The city council in this city seems to be serious business. They even meet in that huge auditorium with their own desks and have factions.
I went to my city’s town hall meeting once when I was in middle school. My city was fairly large (around a million people). The city council sat at a folding table in the front of the room, and the audience (about fifty people, most were kids like me) sat on folding chairs in the rear. I remember it being really boring without any controversy, and I think they met only once or twice a month. Much less theatrics than Mirai Nikki’s city council.
That squirrel! Yes!
*SHIP SHIP SHIP SHIP SHIP* If I had one big complaint about the TV adaptation of Mirai Nikki, it’s that they completely tossed out the relationship between these two (when they didn’t turn it into a joke). I don’t get it. Their relationship was one of the main selling points of the manga for me. Why ignore it?
I’m sorry for your loss. I’m even more sorry that your loss was censored.
