Prepare for a post with the words “dead” ,”killed” and other similar synonyms being overused.
So I finally went out and bought Final Fantasy 13 today! …It’s just too bad that I don’t actually own a PS3. Ahahaha I’ll get around to buying one eventually. Maybe. Until then, my game will just sit on the shelf looking pretty. So anyways, back to everyone Saya knows dying.
Pretty much everyone in Saya’s class is dead and the fight with Saya and the spider Bairn continues. The narrator talks about how she promised to protect everyone and that whether she keeps the promise or not is up to her and then the scene switches to Itsuki looking rather freaked out due to Saya fighting. She tells them to run, but this is Blood-C so no one actually moves when they’re told to. Saya actually manages to save someone for once, but more people still manage to end up dead.
The spider (…is it even a spider? It has waaay more than 8 legs) kills more people while Saya is hindered by flashbacks (which kind of works as an excuse to why she’s letting all of these people die). During this, Itsuki has somehow managed to become a pimp and the people still alive have the brilliant idea to run to the roof to escape. Seriously people, that NEVER works. However, they probably didn’t have anywhere else to go.
Watching your friends get massacred is a great way to pick up chicks.
The Bairn continues to damage the school and HOLY CRAP Saya saves another person, who then dies a couple seconds later because he was too stupid to run away. I can’t even blame Saya for that one. Saya has flashbacks again and the Bairn gets away and kills another person. …And then it comes back. It then asks why she’s angry. Saya says that she’ll never forgive it for killing her friends and it goes to kill Saya, but Itsuki distracts it. The Bairn then busts another hole in the wall and looks like it kills him.
Hundreds of dollars in property damage later…
Back to the few people still alive and cowering on the roof, the spider comes through the door. And then they all die. Saya gets angry, her eyes turn red, and then suddenly she has no problem cutting through the Bairn. Because she’s so angry, Saya cuts up the Bairn reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally well and then starts crying saying that she promised to protect everyone.
Also I never thought I’d be happy to say this but, ITSUKI IS ALIVE!!! He runs up to Saya after the Bairn is dead and asks her who she is. To this, Saya’s eyes get weird and she starts listing all the things about her like what school she goes to and who her father is. Itsuki tells her that that’s not what he was asking her about.
Itsuki helps Saya walk (because her head still hurts or something) and the two run into Kanako, who asks Saya if she killed everybody. Saya sees the light again and this time it has a red tint to it.
She collapses and wakes up at home. Then there’s a suspicious shot of guimauve sitting on her dresser, which looks like the same guimauve Fumito gave her back in episode 2. Either that, or he wraps it all the same. She then wanders the shrine with glowing red eyes in her pajamas thinking about how she couldn’t protect everyone at school (lol poor Itsuki, shafted again). Suddenly, her eyes are normal again and Watainu is with her. She picks him up and cries for a bit.
After thanking him for staying with her, Watainu asks Saya if it’s her head or her heart that hurts. He says again that ‘it’ is almost over and asks her who she promised. He also asks her who she is, and to this her eyes glow red and the flashbacks start again. Also, it flashes to her room and the guimauve shown before is gone. Before he disappears, Watainu tells Saya to think about these questions and the reason why something stops always her from finding the answers.
Tokizane suddenly appears calling Saya’s name. He tells her that he’s glad she’s okay because he heard what happened at school and she gives him the “I promised to save everyone” speech until she realises that he wasn’t there when everyone was being murdered. He says that he was at school (I assume he arrived after though) and Saya realises that if the school had informed him that it would be open, it should have informed everyone. However, only Saya’s class was there at the time. The rest of the school was empty.
I knew the town’s population was small, but this is just ridiculous.
She asks why Tokizane is there and he says it’s because he was worried. Saya doesn’t understand, so he right out confesses that he likes her while giving her a hug. However, Saya doesn’t really react and instead asks what he likes about her. Tokizane just says that they’ve been in the same class, so of course he’s noticed things he likes. Saya then asks how long she’s been in his class, but before he can answer, her father interrupts.
Damn it hair! GET OUT OF THE WAY. YOU’RE BLOCKING TOKIZANE.
He asks who Tokizane is and then tells him it’s dangerous to be out at night. The two glare at eachother (or at least Tokizane does) while Saya stands there with a blank look on her face until Tokizane leaves saying that they aren’t done talking. Saya still has a blank look on her face, so Tadayoshi asks her what’s wrong. Saya then repeats the same speech she gave to Itsuki about how her name is Saya, what school she goes to and such, but then tells her father that she knows all of this but doesn’t know her mother’s name.
End Thoughts: Whoa, a lot to talk about again. Okay, first things first: the giant massacre. I can’t even blame Saya for letting everyone die this time. Those people were stupid in a time of crisis. WHEN A SCHOOLGIRL WITH A SWORD TELLS YOU TO RUN AWAY, YOU SHOULD GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE AND FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE, DON’T BE A DUMBASS AND RUN TO THE ROOF. If there is one thing media has taught me, it’s to stay the hell away from the roof/basement if there is something out trying to kill me. Seriously, half of those people probably wouldn’t have died if they hadn’t just sat there screaming for the first half of the episode. Plus there was that one guy who pushed Saya out of the way so she couldn’t even attempt to save Yuka. Sure these people had the most human reaction to a monster killing everybody, but you’d think that at least one person would have common sense in something like that. Oh, right and how the heck did Itsuki survive? He was pretty much unharmed too. Suspicious. They totally implied that he was killed. Did Saya somehow manage to save him? And if so, why didn’t they show it and why did the Bairn suddenly decide to go after the people on the roof?
Okay, things to talk about part two. The fact that they were the only people in the school was pretty strange. Then again, have they ever shown any class besides Saya’s (or any other teachers for that matter)? I don’t think so. Either someone set it up so that Saya’s class was the only one there for everyone to get killed, (meaning that there’s some sort of mastermind behind the attacks) or there were no other classes in the school to begin with and Saya never noticed before because whatever is wrong with her is wearing off. This could extend to the people in her class not noticing either because everyone in this town seems to be pretty oblivious for whatever reason. It could all tie into one. As for Kanako, damn that woman knows something. She was way too calm. But apparently she might not know everything because she asked if Saya killed everyone. Either she was seriously asking if Saya massacred everyone by herself, or she meant it more indirectly asking if she let everyone die (thus technically killing them because Saya could have saved them if she had killed the Bairn earlier). Either way, she had to have known something about this prior to finding Saya. She somehow knew about it, but wasn’t there when it was going on and there were no survivors who could have told her what happened. Also, she seemed to know that everyone was dead.
Speaking of people who weren’t there, they made Tokizane sound really suspicious again. First of all, how was he there at school, yet managed to avoid all of that? I ASSUME he was there after everyone was dead though (even though he never stated it), simply because Saya didn’t find anything wrong with his story and he’s usually late for class anyways. I don’t even know how he heard about what happened. It kind of sounds like he was lying, but if he was there during the fight, I think he would have tried helping Saya at least. Saya didn’t even react to his confession, leading me to believe that there is something wrong with her (plus the whole “My name is Saya, my father is blah blah, etc” thing, which totally makes her sound programmed). It could be that whatever is wearing off is what caused her to act human, because when Kanako said pretty much the same thing a couple episodes before the plot started moving, Saya had a reaction at least. It’s also interesting that Tokizane didn’t explain what he liked about Saya or even how long they were in the same class for. Could his memory have been altered as well? Who is Saya and why doesn’t she know her mother’s name (assuming she actually has one)?? Oh, one last thing. What was up with the guimauve this episode? The fact that they focused in on it just further confirms Fumito’s suspiciousness. Gah, too many questions and all of these paragraphs are getting long. I’ll leave it at this for now.
Preview: Saya’s indentity crisis continues and she fights some hair….things. Whatever they are.
