Mirai Nikki [future diary] Ep 17: this episode hurt me.
Okay guys this episode has traumatized me, made me cry, and I wish it didn’t exist. I’m reviewing it before going back from 12 on because I literally just watched it and seeing this again or having to review it in any way after getting my mind off of it will hurt me emotionally.
Incidentally, this episode contains rape. If that offends you steer clear.
Wow, there are tears in my eyes.
Seventh, the girl in the couple (Ai), was abandoned as a child. Maru, the other person in the Seventh couple, found her after she had been abandoned, and so she fell in love with him. She began to write in her cell phone about Maru all the time. He shrugged her off, but her classmates noticed how lonely and absorbed in herself she seemed to be.
SO THEY SET HER UP TO BE GANG RAPED
I DONT KNOW HOW TO APPROACH THIS ISSUE. IT ANGERS ME. IT MAKES ME CRY. BECAUSE THIS ISN’T SHOUJO. THE GUY DOESNT EVEN KNOW. UNTIL ITS ESSENTIALLY TOO LATE. SO SHE’S…SHE’S GANGRAPED. THERE IS NO IF. THIS HAPPENS. ALL BECAUSE OF PETTY STUPID HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS. GIRL WAS JUST A LONER SO HEY, LET’S FUCKING GET HER GANGRAPED
THIS IS THE DECISION THEY ACTUALLY MADE
Guys I had to actually watch that scene again to get this screenshot. I don’t know how the seiyuu did this without breaking down and sobbing. I don’t understand. This was so well done it was horrifying. And when he gets there it’s too late and they’ve already started doing it too her and so he starts to beat the shit out of them. Then one of them pulls a knife, so he kills him with that knife. And with that both of their lives are ruined. He was too late to save her and so she got gangraped, and while he was trying to save her he killed someone. He points the knife at his throat and Ai tells him that if he’s in pain she’ll always be there, and to please not leave her.
And so they’ve been together ever since.
Guys like. Everything after this sucks too. They actually get married in the place where they first met, and Ai says that it was always her dream. Then Marco says, no, it was our dream. Marco and Ai are actually a team and genuinely love each other – and so their diaries are especially powerful. They are actually able to beat Yuno’s insanity because Marco and Ai look out for each other. And genuinely, Marco is the first one to tell Yuki he needs to shut up and to tell Yuno to her face that she is insane.
Guys like. These are my favorite diary holders. These guys, and Ninth, are genuinely decent people who got fucked over by life. But especially these guys. All they ever fucking did was love each other. And they got handed shit. All they wanted with the power of God was to be together forever. And they got shit. FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS FUCK YOU ANIME FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU SERIOUSLY NO THIS IS NOT COOL FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU
And now we know the true fucking cause of everything bad in the world. Jealous high school girls. Fuck those bitches. I HATE THEM SO MUCH. JUST. WHY. WHY DO THAT. WHY YOU DO DIS TO ME?
I don’t really care about the rest of the episode. Oh, except that Yuki’s dad steals his parachute. And was trying to kill him inadvertently to clear all his debts. And kept trying to do it. And then he kills Yuki’s mom because she wants to take him to the police station. Yeah fuck that guy I hope he dies.
But if these bitches die I shall be more satisfied.
Just…..the only good thing about this episode is that Marco tells her they can’t be Gods and be together forever, but death was forever too right? And so they die together as Marco cries.
