People fusion, witches, princesses, odd diseases, and much more are explained in this episode of Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi. I won’t think that I need to warn anyone about graphic things this time around, but I will say this. For the second week in a row, my point about children being fucking stupid has been reinforced.
Ai finally made it back to the inn after endangering herself and everyone with her due to her own stupidity. Julie was worried and Scar’s condition got even worse. Ai felt bad for Scar, but it’s not like Ai would have been of any help in the situation. Luckily, Kiriko knows a doctor that will treat a gravekeeper. This is another person that is made up of two different people like the one at the front gate. It turns out that Kiriko was artificially created by a witch. A couple was excited to get married and have a child, but God abandoned the Earth. The couple and two of their friends visited a witch that claimed she could create a child, but she used parts from the five people. Kiriko was born and the remains of the people became these fused individuals. Back to Scar’s condition. It turns out that she is in the middle of a pseudo-pregnancy. It is a common condition amongst women that have longed for children after the departure of God, but it is strange for Scar to undergo this change due to the fact that she never wanted a child. Ai may be to blame in that department. Away from the inn, Ai meets the princess. She is a nice young girl that gets along well with Ai and possibly even better with Kiriko. Unfortunately, this young girl is at the root of the dark side of Ortus. The living may stay in this great land only if they die and a special killing ritual is about to go down.
Current Opinion of the Show:
This series keeps getting better and better. I am very intrigued by the concept of witches in this world that was abandoned by God. The only beings left in existence besides gravekeepers that are capable of conducting miracles so to speak. I expected an odd explanation for the fused people and I got one. Honestly, it could have been worse. When you use religion as an explanation, going to things like witches isn’t the biggest leap. This has brought up two things that interest me greatly. What is up with Kiriko? He has only aged about a year or so in the past thirteen years (it could be fourteen, but I am too lazy to check). His mind is connected to the five people that he was created from, so his existence, and theirs, is pretty crazy. I would like to know more about this, but I honestly doubt that we will get an in-depth explanation of this occurrence. Next we have Ulla. The princess that is alive even though she is at the top of a city that will only admit dead people. Ai claims that Ulla would not know of a crazy ceremony that kills people for admittance, but Ulla is the one conducting the ceremony. The obvious conclusion to make is that Ulla is a witch that has gained a form of immortality by killing others and taking their life force. That would be pretty cliché if you ask me, but it would fit in with the style of the series.
I know that Ai has been through a lot already, but someone needs to teach her that she needs to stay inside when someone tells her to stay inside. That girl is going to get Julie and Scar killed one of these days. Why don’t I say that plot armor will protect them? Well, everyone else that is close to Ai has met their end. I don’t think that anyone is safe. Ai might not even be safe. Do you know how that makes me feel? Great, thanks for asking. I like the fact that characters in this series aren’t safe from death. Plot armor makes things far too predictable in most series and I am tired of it. Good job writers. I guess there are still a few questions that need to be answered. Who is the masked man who is looking out for Ai? Is Ulla really a witch? Does Ai’s presence negatively affect Scar?How was it so easy for Ai to break into the castle? I am mostly interested in the masked man and Scar. That pseudo-pregnancy thing will probably be pretty important moving forward.
