Sometimes we are conflicted in carrying all the burden, we have to deal everything alone and at some stage in your life you don’t want to rely on anyone because you end up “betrayed”. “We are alone”, therefore we must carry on regardless of the weight we desire to throw away. This episode here just confirms why I like Kyoukai no Kanata, at some point I thought Akihito was going to spout lines about “they aren’t my friends, they are there to kill if I lose control”.
The Nase family has an intriguing way of raising their warriors. Especially Izumi being the catalyst that forces Mitsuki to stay alone. That is indeed a very painful move, we have yet to understand why Izumi told her that at such a young age. There wasn’t any “spite” when she said it, it all came as a warning. Still, she only has her brother Hiromi, but when it comes to fighting we all need our pillar of support. Mitsuki have been shown to have this bland have of disinterest from the very beginning.
Now we know it has been all but a mask. When Mirai was introduced as the first female character (human too) in this episode we see how badly she tries to subdue her emotions of trying to befriend her. Of course, nobody can subdue it. We are talking about the Mirai, the glasses beauty!
I think Mirai and Akihito are like magnets. Akihito being immortal and Mirai being from a cursed family we have to shift perspectives. Both Mirai and Akihito have gone through hardships together. Mirai and Mitsuki are literally the same. If we remember the previous episodes she’s been trying to alienate herself from Akihito. She has her reasons, mostly for revenge and atonement. Mitsuki on the other side has been told to cut off any type of relationship at a young age.
Everyone is all alone, but not anymore. I think from here onwards we will start seeing more team combinations and more trust from them. We have yet to see Izumi’s past and family issues.
Also, damn Aya-chan I want all her collection T__T.
