That was quite the action packed leadup to the finale.
It’s a tough choice, but I think the above has to be my favorite Yuno screenshot yet. I just love her expression and the way she’s looking over her shoulder. Also the plain black robe goes great with her twintails.
Sure, that’s probably true. I’m not the kind of person who believes in that star-crossed lovers / soulmate nonsense. But so what? It was Yukki that Yuno became dependent on, and Yuno that protected Yukki. Could’a, should’a, would’a.
This discussion (and a conversation on Twitter this afternoon) made me think of this passage from Mark 12:
“Teacher,” they said, “Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and raise up offspring for his brother. Now there were seven brothers. The first one married and died without leaving any children. The second one married the widow, but he also died, leaving no child. It was the same with the third. In fact, none of the seven left any children. Last of all, the woman died too. At the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?”
Jesus replied, “Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God? When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.
So the soulmates idea doesn’t hold much water in the afterlife either. To summarize, as another wise man once said, “Love the one you’re with.”
“Don’t do anything unnecessary,” huh? Who’s doing unnecessary things now?
I loved Ninth’s appearance in the ninth inning (hur hur hur) to drop kick Murumuru from the sky. Yes! Murumuru totally had that coming to her.
- Great scene composition at the end of the episode. I loved how they contrasted the laughter of Yukki’s imaginary family with Ninth’s screams. It was perfect.
- Yuno’s dad wasn’t that bad after all! It didn’t seem to change her decision to kill him though.
