They found the bus driver wandering about, looking for something. They cornered him and learned that he saw his daughter who died 10 years ago. Meanwhile, the leaving party was lost in the mountain, found themselves going around in circles, and saw “something” in the train tunnel they found. They ran back to the Nanaki village soaking wet from rain, and explained what had happened to the rest. Mikage, who grew distrustful even more, started claiming that there’s a mastermind who set this all up. Everyone started wrapping oneself up in suspicion, doubting and blaming the others. Something really weird is going on in this village.
None of the mysteries are unveiled. In fact, the mysteries only thickened.
As they are in a mentally tight spot, some characters started going out of control.
The leaving party came back to the village, and tried to tell the others what had happened in the mountains.
Seeing a “giant Mitsumune”. Hearing some groans, or roars, some even insist to have heard laughs. They were seeing and hearing different things.
Everyone is now wrapped up in suspicion, and none of the mysteries are clarified. Are we, the audience, supposed to find clues to the mysteries by the fragments of their testimonies?
I can’t really take my eyes away from this show bringing in new mysteries every single episode.
We learned that Lion could see when people were about to die. She claimed that Mitsumune looked invisible for a moment and said that someone who looked invisible to her was dying soon. Does this mean that she just raised the protagonist’s death flag?
This ability of hers is further deepening the mysteries of this show.
After hearing what Lion could do, the bus driver started questioning her about his dead daughter.
Actually, he may be the best fitted person for this “Life Starting-over Tour” in a way.
This episode’s highlight is Love-pon’s craziness instead of the mysteries scattered around.
After capturing Mitsumune, she really meant to torture him. While everyone else is exhausted by doubts and suspicions, she never wavers and continues to ask for executions every time she opens her mouth.
Her persistence may be a charm, but her frantic cries make it so creepy too.
What we saw in the end of this episode is a huge mysterious object looking like a penguin. Mitsumune called this “Tokimune”. Does that have something to do with his flashback scene in a hospital in the first episode?
On the other hand, Masaki, who is standing next to him, looked calm and sound. Is this object only visible to Mitsumune? Maybe it is related to his trauma.
The biggest mystery of Mayoiga is apparently the genre of this show.
I had been wondering whether it was to be a mystery or a horror, but judging from what we saw such as Lion’s ability and the bus driver’s dead daughter, we can safely say it is an occult-horror.
The mysteries are not being revealed at all and we keep building up frustration, but it keeps us so curious to feel that we need to see what is going to happen. It’s really a smart work.
What is this village about, after all? Let’s check it out.
