He thinks; Whoever attempted to assault Airi knew where she lives. That means, the cunning bastard who framed Satoru is somewhere much closer than Satoru had anticipated.
Can Satoru reveal and corner the criminal? Watch and be amazed as this chaotic story unfolds.
Synopsis: Episode 6
Satoru rescues Airi from the burning house. He is now confident that the fire was set by the same guy who had murdered his mother Sachiko. By tracing the memo left by Sachiko, Satoru attempts to contact an individual, who is the former “TV Ishikari” reporter, Sawada.
Sawada informs Satoru that Sachiko had actually figured out who was behind the incident of eighteen years ago. Sachiko speculated that the murderer kills victims and then flames somebody else as the murder suspect. Satoru acquires Sawada’s suspects list, and then, realize one crucial fact that may lead him to identify the criminal.
Highlight 1: I’m Glad That I Trusted You
His mother was killed. Kayo was killed as well. Satoru is cornered by the police. In this wretched situation, Airi is the only hope and comfort to Satoru.
The police are after Satoru, as he is now the murder suspect of his mother, Sachiko. On the other hand, Airi continues to believe that Satoru didn’t do it. She refuses to repeat the same mistake she had done before. She had doubted her father once, which caused this innocent guy to disappear for good. Airi is determined to believe in Satoru no matter what it takes.
Airi takes an action on her own. But, she didn’t know the police was tailing her from the hospital. Unfortunately, as soon as she arrives at the meeting point with Satoru, the police arrests him.
Satoru feels that this is the last time he would see her. So, he tells her. He believes in her no matter what, just like she believes in him.
“Because you believe in me, I can keep on going. Thanks Airi. I’m glad that I trusted you.”
Sawada used to be a work friend of the late Sachiko. Thanks to his organized information, Satoru gets one step closer toward the identification of the bastard who not only bailed on murder charge but framed Satoru as the murderer.
Sawada’s report provides some helpful insights to the incident of eighteen years ago.
Before three people, including Kayo, were murdered eighteen years ago, a report of abduction was filed in the neighboring town. An individual who got arrested for kidnapping entirely denied the charge, just like Shiratori.
Sachiko has actually figured out who the real criminal was, but, unfortunately she was killed because of that. Now Satoru is charged with her murder.
Sawada speculates that these seemingly unrelated crimes must be operated by the same person.
Sawada shows Satoru his suspects list.
Satoru meets with Airi, who tells him that a member of a municipal parliament visited the pizzeria that they both work at. She explains to Satoru that this guy looked suspicious. This city officer’s name is Nishizono. Satoru checks Sawada’s list, but he doesn’t find the same name. Then, what that means is… When Satoru feels to be really close to find out the truth, the police rushes in and arrests him.
In pouring rain, Satoru starts walking as two police officers drag him by both arms. Suddenly, this rainy scene switches to a slow motion. Satoru stares at falling rain drops. Beyond them, curious spectators are standing, watching Satoru. Then he sees it, the criminal, standing in the crowd.
This scene grew tense, as the criminal reveals himself for the first time, in order to confront Satoru. In contrast to a stunned look on Satoru, the criminal smiles fearlessly. Thrilling back ground music. This last scene is well designed, it is definitely worth watching. Please don’t miss it!
Well, how was it?
Satoru is finally caught by the police force. This is absolutely the worst, desperate situation. But, wait. Did you notice a blue butterfly flapping across the screen in the last scene? This butterfly is a symbol of revival. So that means, we can expect to see another trip to the past, that’s my guess.
