AMNESIA Ep 2: Shards of Memories
The heroine and her co-workers have a trip planned to go and watch the meteor showers. Shards of memories flash through her mind of her experience with both Shin and Kent, however as result she remembers a startling moment when Shin had confessed to her that he killed someone.
Note: There’s more footage after the ED!
. ___ . Wow I am kind of lost here. It’s suddenly August 1st again and our heroine is the hospital and Shin just kissed her. Is this a memory flash?Orion isn’t there either. I think it’s either a memory or her exploring that memory, triggered by the fall or something. Perhaps she was in the hospital on August 1st before she had met Orion. Also something had happened to her neck…
Man, when she fell off the cliff I was like, “SHIT! Is this part of a bad end route or what?! It feels like it… How on earth is she going to survive that fall? Well first of all we don’t know how high up they are, if they are not too far from the ground, she should be okay. Otherwise I’m hoping Orion can cast magic or something that would catch her fall haha.
It’s definitely both funny and strange to see Orion make these attempts to protect our heroine. The first example within this episode was when she was nearly struck by a car only to be pulled out of the way by Ukyou. The second time is when he is reaching out to catch her as she falls from the cliff. But I don’t know if he actually can or not.
I can’t blame the heroine for being terrified of Shin right now. She has no outside memories to connect it with, but that being the first- and hearing the Shin had killed someone (be it literal, indirectly or not at all- that is yet to be confirmed) that isn’t comforting at all.
If Shin in fact did kill someone, well I have to say that caught me by surprise, big time. Not to mention that was quite startling to hear that coming from him.
It’s interesting that Kent (I don’t know why the subs go with Kento...) does not remember the festival he and the heroine had went to. But it’s either that, or perhaps her memory is mixed up and she mistaken him for the wrong person.
Onto Ukyou. Last week we saw him with that batshit insane psychopathic look on his face. However this time we were seeing a ‘soft’ (I guess?) side of him when he pulled our heroine back onto the side walk. He says that helped out like this in the past, but interestingly enough he also points that that she probably doesn’t remember. Another interseting thing about Ukyou is that both the heroine and Orion felt their heart flutter. (Hahaha i laughed when he said he felt his heart flutter (because their souls are merged at the moment)) Be it a sign of love or feeling flustered in the moment, it’s definitely a mystery of how he and the heroine are connected to each other.
Of course Ukyou’s insane side was once more featured in this episode. He is seriously creepy, I get the chills. When he is in his insanity mode, he has dark circles under his eyes and when he isn’t he looks pretty darn normal. I am curious to know whether he is just plain batshit insane, bipolar, or has multiple personalities, possessed. Also, last week after having rewatched the ED because I was going to make GIFs out of it, I finally caught on to the fact that he was not holding onto a kaleidoscope, but in fact a fucking camera. So now it’s a no brainer to put the pieces together and figure out that he might be some sort of stalker. >___> An insane one at that. He seems to know a lot-…. then again, if he is a stalker- of course he’s going to know a lot about the heroine relationship with her childhood friends and co-workers. He mentioned that going down the path the heroine was running, hints that perhaps that’s where Shin had “killed” someone.
Overall despite the fact this episode did go by quickly, it was okay. But frankly: it was quite boring during the first half. The air-hockey game was really lame. There was no energy it really felt like it was pointless and a waste of time. Fortunately as the episode drew closer to the end, things started to pick up and become interesting again. Finally, with this current pace.. I am a bit iffy about the show being only 12 episodes. If it’s going to be divided into two parts show much like Hakouki and Hiiro no Kakera, then I will be able to relax a bit about how the pacing matter will go.
PS: Ikki and Kent are awesome bros. BROTP!
