Occultic;Nine Episode 9: Yeah, this all makes sense


I have to admit that I wasn't all too interested watching the stuff happening with Miyuu this week. I was more curious about what Ryouka was doing...she seems to get fed up with her act in this episode and I want to know what she's really doing. Second interesting piece of the episode was the fact that Miyuu's astral form was affected by something happening in the physical world. It could mean that the astral forms aren't as immortal as they were sold to be.

The "science talk" in this episode also didn't feel too overwhelming. Based on what we've seen so far, I think most of these concepts had already been demonstrated before, and the conversation was just putting a lot of technical terms to it. I do question the concept of "absolute time", though. I have no idea what that means.

Yup yup...it's a bomb. Everyone knows that!

You know, when Yuuta refused to go to Miyuu, I actually thought it was cool. I thought "I can't wait to hear the reasoning for this", but it ends up being some annoying self-pitying speech that isn't even related to Miyuu...disappointing.

I'm surprised that the logical conclusion isn't that the white-haired kid sent the message. That seems like the easiest guess to make. Plus, they all saw him when they originally found Chizu's body, right? I understand Miyuu not coming to that conclusion in her mental state, but these guys should be fine.

Seriously, what is up with this card game?

Whoa whoa...what?

Okay, you're going to have to explain this one. He took the hair from Miyuu's corpse and the moment she realizes it, her spirit form loses the hair as well? For this to make sense, the radio that Yuuta was carrying should have disappeared when he saw Asuna with the real thing.

So...definitely alive and can see the spirit forms anyway. She's getting a lot more suspicious.

I really hope they don't show what happened the night before in some kind of flashback. I like it more if we only see the scene from Asuna's perspective. The scene's better if Sarai showed up to help in the fight and that's what we were seeing. That's the only way that it would make sense for Miyuu to thank Sarai and Touko for showing up.

Okay, now I'm less sure, because Sarai and Touko should have noticed this.

Yup, sure...that's totally how that works.

Wait...what? This series now has some time travel too?

Oh, is that how everything fixes itself in the end?

It's about time.

    Was there any context for his "I want to know how to turn back time" statement because let's be honest, most of us could say this in most situations but it doesn't actually resolve anything. And if we fix a story this convoluted by turning back time it kind of feels like a cheap ending (almost as bad as it was all a dream). Thanks for keeping us up to date with this.

    there really wasnt much context...just "you can see the future...i want to know how to turn back time". and i think the fact that this gets compared to steins;gate so much makes this much worse
