Joker Game Episode 4: Well, this is awkward...


Oh hey...I've been there. If you had shown me this picture without the big Chinese characters labeling the city, I would have guessed this was a Western city.

Wow...Chinese people smiled a lot back in the day.

Also, the beginning of the "background noise" for the street actually sounds like a Chinese person talking. That being said, the rest of it is just mumbling, so I can't really give it too many points. E for effort?

So...this week's arc is a murder mystery in China? I'm down with that.

That other guy got killed, but you can totally handle this! Also, I'd personally be suspicious if my superior said something like this to me.

Oops...

This guy must live alone. If he lived with his family, he should be panicking at the possibility that someone else was there when the home exploded.

No one ever cares about the "help"...

It's amazing how many Japanese people are here in China. Weren't Japan and China on opposite sides during the second world war? Last week's episode ended with Japan joining Germany, right? Someone who knows more history...help me out here.

Isn't this how the first guy died? I suppose this guy has no way of knowing that...

Uhh...this might be nitpicky, but I'm pretty sure Coke wasn't in China at the time of World War II.

Ugh...so he just saw someone he knows and we're not going to be shown who it is because this is a setup for a dramatic reveal later. However, since this is an episodic series, there are only so many people it could be since not many people have been introduced. More than likely, it's the suspicious commander from before...the only other people it could be are the detective and the reporter, neither of whom make sense. It couldn't be Kusanagi, because he wouldn't have been surprised to see him.

GASP! This commander's face is actually the look of shock that's on my face right now.

She was taking your stuff? Yeah, she definitely deserved to die.

facepalm This character annoys me...

Also, I know it would have been too obvious if they had shown us the same tattoo as the unidentified victim on one of the other boys in the night club, but it would have been nice for that to have been tied in to the mystery. It seems like such a meaningless thing.

This situation looks very hopeless for the soldier, so he needs a crazy way out. Given that they're purposely not showing us the face of the guy holding the gun behind him, I'm going to guess that we've either seen him before or he's the D-Agency spy. There has to be a reason that he doesn't shoot our "main character".

...or that...there's that...

Oh, he was the spy. Have we seen him before?

I dunno about this episode, guys. It felt really boring in the first half and the second half was basically devoted to letting the commander rant. I get that the point of the spy in this episode was to subtly manipulate things in the background, but I guess the intent was lost on me as I was watching...
