Yajima, a victim of New Information Privacy and Protection Act I would say, enlisted the help of our great detective Shinjurou to find out why his personal manuscript ended up in between pages of one of Kaishou Rinroku’s book. I don’t know about you, but the fact that Rinroku’s name was mentioned amidst all the mystery is good enough to win my full attention. And it was well invested.
There is no murder case this week, although one nearly happened. So instead of actively trying to guess who the culprit is, this week I sat back and enjoy as the mystery unfold itself. The evidence of Yajima’s wife, Takako’s fingerprint on the manuscript must have implanted the thought of infidelity among viewers or at least ignited curiosity in regards to the wife and Rinroku’s relationship. I must say, I’m one of them. At least, I thought of that before learning about the disappearance of Yajima’s children.
Rinroku proved himself to be no ordinary person. As I have always suspected, he knows more than he’s telling others. As it turns out, Rinroku helped his dear old friend’s family to weather tough times. Takako had difficulties dealing with Yajima being in the prison and neglected her children. He had to step in to ensure the safety of both the mother and the children. For the first time, I think Rinroku had the ultimate victory and Shinjurou utterly defeated. But at the end of the day, he only confirmed to us one thing – his remarkable ability to cover up truths.
This brings us to another question. Or rather, the question Rinroku asked Shinjurou when the two rivals met for the first time. Is there always one truth? I like that the whole case ended with that question. We all know that there’s always truth, but is it only just one truth? It’s hard to say, really. Say if we view a matter from different perspectives, there’s a possibility that there is more than one truth. Or is that delusion? It’s complicated.
The core story aside, Kazamori and Inga seem to be getting along really well. Their playful nature made Un-Go so much more fun to watch. I know Inga is a little scary and he is actually very scary throughout this week’s episode but one can’t deny he has a cute side right? My guess is now that he has Kazamori to play with, his cuteness just came oozing out. Besides that, I want to hire Rie’s maid as my own. Gosh, that is one super maid man. If I remember correctly, the same maid had already made quite the impression way back in the first episode as a different sort of maid. Anyway, personally all these extra little treats made this episode a little more fun to watch than usual.
Hmm…I wanted to say something about the novelist but I’ll hold that thought for the time being. So I’ll end this post with a question – who is this girl? Looks like Shijurou is afraid of her…
