Right, how do I start this? It’s a very interesting episode I would say. It’s like a total 180 degree change from our usual normal episodes. Okay, let’s begin by how this week’s episode started off where last week’s episode left off. That way, we’ll get a complete look at where we’re going with this. If you’re a follower of Un-Go, then you’ll know about the novelist and the mysterious girl from last episode. Apparently, they did something to Shinjurou and as the episode title suggested, he’s probably trapped inside a delusional world or something.
Given how Shinjurou suddenly became an assistant in a film set with no Inga tagging along and had no recollection of who Rie (funny to see her “new” role) is, it’s safe to say he’s not the usual Yuuki Shinjurou we know and possibly love. I was actually surprised and confused for a moment, but then I realize it must have something to do with the novelist and the mysterious girl. I’m gonna bet that the little girl’s power requires no direct contact in order for it to work. Also, there were a few moments indicating he was struggling to break free from this delusion such as brief appearance of Inga and the mysterious pair.
Let’s get on with the mystery, shall we? The whole episode did well in keeping the suspense intact. I kept wondering what will the mystery be. It’s a bit weird actually. Because we’re looking at a movie set, so we don’t know when those girls are acting and when it’s part of the real thing in a delusional world. At some point, I’m convinced the director is going to die only because I find him irritating and unlikable. Sure enough, he was the victim and died in perhaps the gruesomest death in all of Un-Go cases so far. But because we’re talking about delusions here, I don’t know if we should be paying attention in finding who the actual murderer is. I don’t think is Shinjurou and I seriously can’t think of anyone else. Maybe it’s one of the actresses. I decided I wanted to know how Shinjurou is going to escape this and why novelist wanted to write such a reality. I decided not to care who the murderer is.
As always, Un-Go prompted me something to look at or think of this week. Shinjurou was supposedly filming a war scene, wasn’t he? I find the actresses’ perspectives of war particularly interesting. Each of them have different views and there’s no saying who is right and who is wrong. I know it’s human nature to fight for survival and want changes, but is war really the answer?
Anyway, I’m glad to see Inga is waiting outside the prison and I’m sure he’ll be saving Shinjurou and get him out of this misery in no time. Oh, he smelled her too. So, what’s the story between Inga and the mysterious girl? Anybody wants to know?
