Dimension W Episode 5: Well, that was a bit convoluted...


Water enemies!

Don't you love it when the antagonist conveniently has a weapon that you can use against his own allies?

First off...they just figured out that these guys are made of water? That was my first guess. And secondly, why does this work? Was it the fact that the plastic wasn't porous enough for the water to phase through it? Or was it the fact that another source of water is somehow able to hit these water enemies?

This is a bit of a weird time to be having a crisis of conscience, Mira. This question is one that has interested me for a while now because I'm curious how the mind works. Basically, it's asking "if we take away a significant portion of a robot or human's memory, at what point can we say that this entity is different enough to be a separate identity?" So if I were to take away all of a person's memories after the age of 12, would I have killed that version of that person and replaced him/her with a different version? Always a fun question, but not really relevant here.

I think this is Dimension W's version of "there is no spoon".

Water's only weakness is apparently...water.

These gags will eventually get old, but I'm fine with them so far.

This insignia looks a lot like Loser's mask...but why did she call him "Papa"? Does he take in lost children or something?

Okay, this entire flashback scene took a second to make sense to me. So Shiro expected Enamori to rush over and warn everyone to evacuate from that building before the dam flooded, but she slipped (pretty comically) and that plan fell apart. That being said, what are the odds her body ends up right here next to the Numbers?

Why is the natural water from this bottle so much more effective than all of the water in the human body?

Kyouma only put water on his feet, but apparently his hand has no problem holding on to Shiro's weapon.

I don't actually mind this explanation because it explains why Shiro lived on as a writer despite being "trapped" in the other world. If the other world is an alternate timeline, there's no paradox. Still, I think the part about everything being controlled by "perception" was a bit weak and forced. It was basically saying Shiro couldn't see Enamori because he had convinced himself that she was dead...while it's possible for that to happen, I don't like it being used as a plot device.

I also find it hard to believe Enamori survived that blow to the head, but that's another story.

Given my personal understanding of the fourth dimension, I don't like this phrasing. I would prefer to say that the fourth dimension "revealed" a copy of our reality, rather than "creating" it, because saying "create" makes the assumption that our reality is the "true" reality.

Ouch, that was sloppy, whoever wrote this scene. That slap should have hurt Kyouma based on everything we've seen so far.

And randomly...the true culprit!
