(This episode’s write-up is extra-long and in-depth, and I think it’s worth reading even if you don’t follow the series. Note: Episodic notes are still mostly to be found on the Episodics Notes’ page. For those who don’t know, I take the notes as I watch the episode, and merely re-order them afterwards.)
So, our party wiped last week, and Shiroe mused, mused on his past mistakes, and on learning from them, that the problem is distancing himself from others, and not trusting in them enough. So, let’s see how things work out this week around, when he shares. Also, an impossible game? That can’t be right, but this is no longer a game, so the rules may no longer apply.
Thoughts and Notes:
1) The Voice of Despair:
1) “I lost” – this seems to “strangely” mirror Shiroe’s words from last week, and Akatsuki, but Shiroe thought of these words to a degree because of a recollection of a past conversation with William – dying reminds you that you’re bad, and still need to improve. That’s what losing means.
