I realize there are more mysterious things that need to be covered, but given what Tomiko explained some about her... "position" in Ep. 14, and what we witnessed the children learning to accomplish in school, and taking into mind that the more skills you learn the easier it would be to learn new ones due to your own understanding of what you need to visualize to accomplish them; while Shisei may be the most powerful, shouldn't Tomiko be something like the most BA Swiss army knife of crazy skills?

And I wouldn't mind seeing how their doctor's in that universe go about their practice if things are dealt with on the molecular level frequently.

Gotta find Miria fast. Really like her as a character! :up:
I'm expecting some kind of further resistence from Satoru's or Saki's side toward the Bakenezumi. Especially the Squirrrl's (you know who I mean) colony is rather unpleasant.

On another note; I really like all the dark episodes with all the Fiends, Cats etc.
One of those series that is killing when I'm waiting for the next episode.

Just watched episode 16... Yeah...

Spoiler :
For one, did they just now start having Saki in the future give narration? AKA: she is assured plot armor? And her dream? It was like the animation that would be created from throwing a million cats each into a million frictionless boxes. I nearly have to start agreeing with ZephyrStar's points. And how freaking long did that letter from Maria take to wright? Are queerats even allowed pencils? Well... they probably are. Gift from the "Gods" and all.

...A gift to plot with.

Nope, the narration was there all along.

Spoiler :
As for the letter I thought it was beautiful in a way. It was so long yet it did not bore me.
I'm wondering what meaning was in that dream. At first I thought it was Shun with a weird hairstyle, but it does not look to be the case.

I accidently watched the preview for 17 which I usually try to avoid
Spoiler :
Another time leap, huh? Let's see how much has changed, I guess

Spoiler :
If you've heard of the novel this is based off it skips throughout her years. I'm just not sure how old they will go with the anime.

...
Spoiler :
AGAIN?
Gettin' a little excessive here, methinks.


This show is kind of off and on, for me. There's been many times where I've just left the video running while I opened another tab, but at the same time the recent plot with the Queerats and the children all running away has been mildly more interesting than before.

Spoiler :
But if I had to summarize the show its that Saki loses people dear to her, the end. Seriously, EVERYBODY'S LEAVING AND ITS REALLY UNFORTUNATE.

I caught up a few days ago, and I really don't know why you guys think
Spoiler :
the time skips are surprising >__> She was narrating from this point of time in the latest episode throughout the whole anime. It was pretty obvious they were gonna go this far.


Though I gotta say that I'm still waiting for that moment in the anime that will make me say "so this is why I watched this!" The story so far has been pretty okay thus far, but I'm still waiting for a really satisfying plot development. Episode 10 was as close as it got and I hope there will be something as awesome as that in the episodes to come.

Wait a minute! What about Satoru? Hey? What happened to him? Yo? Anyone?
Other then that I'm really satisfied with how the things are turning out. :awesome:

This show <3 <3 Seriously, the plot is awesome. And that music ;3

But I think I know how this is all going to end and even though what I have in mind would be an awesome ending, I hope they'll surprise me. Best show of the season for me :up:
