Impressions: Kyoukai no Kanata 06 and 07 – Akkey The Mediator!

Alright! Time to talk and predict the next KnK episode. Let’s start with Episode 6

IT WAS AWESOME. IDOLS, LOLIS, YOUMOS DANCING. STICKY LIQUIDS! 

Now that’s that out of the way. Let’s talk about Episode 7, which is actually plot related and has a lot to offer besides just dialogue. Today’s episode was bloodylicious (lame pun intended) and it brings a lot of questions–not about what happened at the end. Sakura joins the cast of idols  warriors and sexy teacher to deal with the main heroine. I’m going to make a little note here that I’m still a bit disgusted of this type of storytelling. Mirai is one of the heroines in this series, being a heroine means that she won’t simply die because of that fact. If Mirai had died it would blow everyone’s mind.

Sakura isn’t a strong willed character. Why? Her behavior does not show any type of determination to get Mirai. She wanted revenge, but her revenge wasn’t strong enough to go after her. Then she was talked into it by that idiot with glasses, but that doesn’t really change her behavior or determination.

If she wanted to kill Mirai, she would have done so after Mirai killed the Hollow Shadow, which by the way, anyone with a heavy grudge would have taken the opportunity.

In the flashbacks, Sakura was still shown as a weak character. Not weak as one that couldn’t defend herself. But weak as one that could develop that type of determination. Did she really blame Mirai at all for what she did? It was a possession I think that any warrior or normal people evaluating the case would had to get rid of the hollow shadow, the host was probably dead, which by the way just thinking about something possessing you, rendering you powerless and killing you is itself damn scary.

That’s all I wanted to say about Sakura for now. Now let’s go back to our “somehow chronological events”.

Have anyone even questioned how did Mitsuki had all that material. I think that if Mirai had a bonsai hobby, Mitsuki might be a fujoshi herself. I mean, her brother is a pervert after all, it might run in the family.

I’m sold.

I like how Sakura is trying to assess what’s going on. “Did he do weird things to me?” while keeping that stern look on her face.

I APPROVE OF SUCH RELATIONSHIP. Could we even blame him if he did?!

IT WAS DELICIOUS. The things I would love to see Akkey say, “he said it was delicious”

I wanted to know how did it all fit within the timeline. I’m going to assume that she was crying because of what happened. Sakura had the guts to bring her a damned sandwich?

Hmm…

Brace yourselves, winter is coming!

Now what is The Calm? Did Sin from Final Fantasy X happened to jump into Kyoukai No Kanata storyline? That would be awesome.

It gave me chills when I read that. Now things are about to get more interesting. I predict that Akkey, being a half-human and half-youmo has a big part to play as a mediator. If I’m not mistaken, Izumi mentions a God. That God has to be some type of youmo, right? Akkey has advantages. I think we are finally going to see what his role in the story, besides being a powerless person, is in a few episodes.
