Occultic;Nine Episode 3: What's reality again?


Eventually, the way this show transitions between scenes is going to be the end of me. There's a lot of information to keep track of in this series, which makes it hard to cover (because I'm way too lazy to do it). It's all headed somewhere, right?

What the...

I had to re-watch the end of last week's episode to realize that the girl in this scene was the friend that went missing.

Is the "Vanguard" card game mentioned here supposed to be Cardfight Vanguard? Because it would be out of place next to the mention of "Yafoo".

Well, technically the things you dream are thought up by you...you just don't realize- yes, I know she's trying to suggest that she's clairvoyant through her dreams. I'm just saying! Unless someone is sending you the dream, it comes from your own mind!

I feel like this is a subtle nod at a difficult home life covered by her bubbly personality. That's not bad.

Can I just...ignore this one?

That sounds like something a kid would say...

Also, if the older brother works alone, how do they afford this giant house? They should be living in a box.

Now that I think about it, was there actually a reason to show this scene to us? We already got this story in the first episode, so what new information do we actually gain here?

This sentence...

And she's still in the same house? I guess black magic is lucrative?

I hope this scene is here to show how crazy this guy's become after being involved in a murder...because I don't want to believe that he really expected the key to work.

I'm just going to pretend this is an illusion.

This series has no off button...

    While at this point I have no interest in picking this series up again, I'm having a great time reading some great write ups about it. Even the most positive reviews aren't really making this seem coherent and I really value coherence.

    this feels like one of those shows that rewards you for keeping track of tons of details...and im not great with taking notes
