Episode 09 Hyoketsu in the Moonlight
Although Masaki said not go to the other side of the tunnel, the bus didn’t stop. Mitsumune was suffering from the trauma, and Hayato saw something as well… On the other side of the tunnel, those three found the message Reiji left, “If you go any further from here, accept Nanaki.” What does this mean? They entered an old abandoned factory looking for Reiji. There, Hayato talked about his trauma. He couldn’t oppose his parents, and he needed someone loyal like Mitsumune, and…
The other side of the tunnel was revealed. There was a mysterious village. It had an old abandoned factory that looked modern. At the entrance of the village there was a rock with the encarving
“Accept Nanaki.” I wonder if Nanaki means the Nanaki Village or not? We could guess this village has some different values from the Nanaki Village. Then what is this village? We have to keep watching the upcoming episodes.
We found out about Hayato’s trauma. This was very dark, and a good reason to attend the bus tour. Hayato’s parents cruelly hit him when he opposed them, and locked him in the attic. There was a portrait of his dead grandma in the attic. She had been locked in the attic as well. Locked in the attic with the portrait was his trauma.
Then, the reason why Hayato needs Mitsumune was shown. Mitsumune is “honest and loyal,” so Hayato had been hitting Mitsumune like his parents to console himself. This was too sad. The reasons why Hayato participated in this “Start Your Life Over Tour” was to run away from his parents, and because the loyal Mitsumune also attended this.
Hayato’s past was so miserable. Betrayal and hope controlled his mind, which made it so dark. How will he face his trauma and Mitsumune?
Judgeness and Jack who were missing reappeared, and the story is getting exciting. Judgeness said, “I just followed what that person said,” but who is “that person”? It is the fun part of this anime to solve mysteries from pieces of clues. More and more mysteries are added in each episode, but they have been solved gradually. I can’t miss any later episodes.
