This is honestly the most heterosexual episode of anything I have ever seen. Definately.
|Happy 1st of December, guys! The countdown to Christmas has begun! Hopefully the lead up is slow as I have exams straight after…orz. Anyway, this is a stupendous episode, so without further ado…|
Eight remain in our Survival Game. An one of the members elects to transfer his diary to a third party, much to Deus’s surprise. Yuki meanwhile is reflecting on Yuno injuring his mum, and also Rei’s “dissappearance” after he succumbed to the poisonous gas. Yuno slinks out from where she’s been stalking him, anyway, and tells him that she thinks he’d be better not to use his diary at their new school. He reluctantly agrees after she reminds him about how he fuckced things up with Third because of it. Yuki suddenly notices they are being watched by
Aki from Kamisama Dolls a white-haired guy sporting an intense yandere face.
Once at school Yuki meets up with one of the jerks who sold him out to Ninth when their original school was taken over by her. He starts mouthing off until a girl called Hinata smacks him on the head. Her friend, Mao, also joins in chastising him. Hinata offers Yuki her hand to help him up but SOMEHOW…I don’t know how, he trips and pulls down her trousers, revealing her pants. Hurr. While chatting to the girls about the cheery topic of murders, they mention a guy called Akise (omg my Aki theory is getting stronger), apparently he’s a wannabe Tantei and chronic slacker.
Pantsu makes everyone smile!
The guys all go to the crime scene of the latest murder, they seem to be having fun but Yuno is unexpectedly broody. She carves “Die” in the ground with her foot, so I’d guess she’s jealous of that Yuki’s made friends. Friends he’s about to lose, it seems. Yuki’s diary gives him a warning that Hinata is about to end up dead so the gang race off to find her….which they do. Well, at least part of her. It’s now that Akise decides to show up, wandering out of the wilderness with that smirk on his face. He is voiced by the one and only Akira Ishida (Natori, Natsume Yuujinchou; Break, Pandora Hearts).
Y’all get the Kaworu vibes from this guy, too, right?
And, in what I guess you could call a form of seduction, he caresses Yuki’s face, brings him to his knees and assures him that he’s his friend. Ohohoho, don’t tell me I’m actually going to get to ship a couple that’s canon? So, yeah, Yuki’s new -boy-friend, Akise gets them all to run away from the Resident Evil dogs with robotic teeth (I know, just go with it), and take shelter in a building. Akise tells them that he’s been investigating Yuki for a few days, to which Yuno tosses him an epic glare, and is interested in his connection to basically all of the batshit insane things that seem to go on in their town.
Most of the episode is just Akise looking pretty, if I’m honest.
Yuno is obviously suspicious, and as the dogs start to break in, she points the finger at Akise. With the help of Yuki’s diary and directing though they are able to hold off the dogs until they give up, seemingly shattering the untrustworthy atmosphere. Ah, but lest we forget this is Mirai Nikki, as soon as the apparent danger is gone a new one rises it’s head. With the Future Diary revealed, Mao captures Yuki, holding him at knife-point in front of the others. Hinata also appears, very much alive, and reveals herself to be a Diary owner and that her objective is Akise’s Diary!
Holy shit, guys. This episode was pretty damn good. Akise is the new Aki for Winter, I’m so lucky for the degrees of homolust I’ve been getting in my shows this year. Booya, I think is the term. AWYEAH. Ahem~ anyway, yeah, this guy seems pretty hot for Yuki in the “I’m going to make you trust me then screw you over, cause I’m clearly insane”. It’s that frog-face. All crazies have it. Yuno and Akise have the same smile. It just speaks volumes. It also doesn’t help that he’s voiced by Akira Ishida. It might not be the case for some of you, but I know him best for playing pretty fruity characters so it just adds to the ghey vibes Akise gives off. I’m not complaining though. Never complaining.
I actually thought Rei was the other yandere, which is why I was probably so bitter about his arc. I’d heard yaoi-scented rumors about this show but never enough to spoil it. All I knew was it was someone else that was yandere for Yuki and it was a boy. And when Rei turned up in all his craziness I honestly though “Oh, no. This is it, isn’t it?” Thank god I was wrong! Blame my bad definitions of yandere. Who cares, anyway. Akise is awesome! He is going to be my new favorite I can just tell, but I will get him mixed up with Aki. I will. Just forgive me for that.
There was more bad humor again but thankfully there wasn’t much of it. The animation quality seemed to shoot up a few notches at points as well, which was good. And as usual the fast pace helped create the excitement surrounding the events of this episodes. Hinata and Mao are such bitches. Can’t say that came out of nowhere but it was still a fun twist. I am just itching to find out what happens next!
