Boku Dake ga Inai Machi Final Episode (12): Well, that was easy...


Starting the final episode off with MAGIC MEMORY-RESTORING BABY HAND OF DESTINY.

Me at the end of last week's episode: There's no way anyone would be stupid enough to tell the serial killer that he knew everything while the two were standing on a rooftop alone with no other witnesses, right?

Me after they play the same exact scene again at the start of this week's episode: Well...*facepalm*

The three important members of the group talk about the two members who just kinda...existed. I didn't even know the glasses guy's name was Osamu...

Typical Kenya can notice anything. On the bright side, this means that Satoru chose to go to the rooftop on purpose after telling his friends. As long as it's not the cliched case of getting the killer to confess to his crimes to other witnesses when he thinks he's alone with the main character, we should be okay.

You doubt anyone would believe you when you tell them that you remember why you were in the coma? Sure, that makes soooooo much sense...

So what you're telling me is that Yashiro only saved Satoru because he wanted to know why Satoru was able to figure out his every move? So...just curiosity? I feel like this is an insult to most villains...

Well, I'm glad he saw through this overused trope...

Sure, I believe that this guy would wait 15 years just so he could take a hospitalized girl hostage in order to find out what Satoru meant when he said that he knew Yashiro's future...makes complete sense.

Can someone explain to me why everyone is suddenly able to figure out that Satoru has his memories back?

Nobody talks like this...

Uhh...what?

...huh?

This looks super dramatic and whatnot, but given the speech that Satoru just made about Yashiro and Satoru completing each other, I'm guessing he's expecting Yashiro to save him to prove his point...

Yup...

"I can't live without you so we'll die together" cliche...

Sure, let's pretend that getting an air bag like this is easy to do on short notice. Also, why is the wheelchair not under Satoru? Did he push it away in midair? If so, wouldn't it have fallen further away? Or have potentially hit one of his friends?

That aside, have you ever tried to lean forward off a ledge and stop yourself halfway without grabbing something to stabilize yourself? Because I have, and it's not easy once you've gone as far as Yashiro has.

Hey! That's the title of the series! Wow!

I get that this is supposed to tie up that loose end, but it begs the question: why did he even have the Revival ability in the first place and why did it decide that now was the appropriate time to stop working? Remember the first scene of the first episode? Revival kicks in to save OTHER PEOPLE (remember the boy who almost gets hit by the truck?)...so now when a bad thing happens to someone near Satoru, Revival just shrugs and lets it happen. Revival is a massive jerk...

Remember that scene from the alternate future where the kid throws the paper plane into the river that made no sense? Well, here's a reference to it! ...for some reason...

Hah! I called this! But in all seriousness, they gave her a back story about her parents...her past is better-explained than Satoru's, so it made no sense to just forget about her in the end.

All in all, this show wasn't that bad...though I wonder how biased I am because of all the other shows in this season. Musically, it was strong in my book, but that's one of those things where if you like Yuki Kajiura, you're going to like the soundtrack. I've seen stuff elsewhere about how it handles cinematography and I'll just take their word for it since I don't notice that stuff. Definitely, a lot of random story elements that felt weird, but hey...cliffhangers are great for blog posts, am I right?

Welp...time to read the manga to see if it's really better like everyone says, right? Who's with me??
