Strangely enough, this episode also managed to be quite unnerving. However, it couldn’t have been more different visually if it tried! Whilst last week our characters stumbled blindly around a cramped, pitch-black hospital, this week they flee from the fiend into the surrounding countryside, in (for the most part) broad daylight. But the reason it was still tense was because this made you feel as though Saki and Satoru were completely exposed to the threat, and with no weapons to fight back against it, they had absolutely no chance of winning against it were it to find them. Saki even said as much herself! And after years of being indoctrinated with the values of never giving up, and always fighting against adversity by your typical shounen show, having your main character acknowledge that they’re doomed is pretty harrowing!!
