Episodes 8+9: Spoiler To be fair, episode 8 was admittedly a little slow. I did like the small character moments, like Saikawa looking at a sleeping Nishinosono and then realizing he maybe shouldn't ogle her like that. Quite the gentleman. ;) Nishinosono telling the floating tank girl off like that was great too. Saved a screencap of that for potential forum use. c: It took until episode 9 for things to really get going when it comes to the plot though. Looks like both Saikawa and Nishinosono have figured out the killer's identity. I liked the moment where Saikawa was going all "man, I'm an IDIOT!" because I felt the same way. OF COURSE it was the kid. I honestly should have seen that coming myself. I had figured out already that the motive for Dr. Magata's murder of her parents was likely her relationship with the director, which was heavily implied to be sexual in nature. Now let's see if I have the rest figured out properly: Dr. Magata herself raised her own daughter as "Shiki Magata", and set up for her own murder, along with the director's, in 15 years. Why? Because the new "Shiki" Magata would then be free. Free of being a victim of child sexual abuse, that is. Slow pacing or not, I am enjoying this show. Looking forward to seeing how it ends. :) I might even watch the remaining two episodes later on.
