At this point, I’m pretty convinced everyone in this show is totally freaking insane. I just don’t know yet whether it’s for the sake of comedy or it’s an actual plot point. It’s fun ride either way though, because things escalate pretty damned quickly in episode 5.
I foresaw this episode going in a very different direction at the end of the previous week’s. I can’t saw I’m disappointed to be wrong, especially when what we get instead is a masterfully animated test of Mob’s ideals.
Mogami has trapped Mob inside a simulated reality in which he not only lacks his powers, but all of the social connections in his life as well. Trapped in a world where everyone uses and abuses him relentlessly for six months, even Mob has broken down into hopelessness.
