The examples should be self-evident and have been done to death. I don't have a script handy to pull all of them out. I suspect you know exactly what I mean and are just trying to be coy about it.

No, I stand by it. Unlikely events happen all the time in fiction, but a confluence of every possible unlikely or unfortunate event solely for the purpose of making a character's life suck harder...

Well, it's not over, I acknowledge that. But there's quite a few things that were not in the VN that they'd have to address because of what they've brought up as new information in order for me to...

I actually... don't agree, regarding the finale, at least so far. I'm more disappointed in the ending now than I was before. If anything, I think the moral is even darker, more pointless, more...

Well, I don't know about end. There is technically one more gap that needs to be filled (TIP #2 takes place roughly between the Coffee Break and ????, #3 was supposed to cover how the Fragments were...

I always figured the reason Kumasawa couldn't get fired is because she essentially had blackmail dirt on Kinzo. Even if she never made any sort of direct threat on that, she kinda knows about his...

He's still a monster by the morals of the story, though, so it really doesn't matter. There's absolutely no equivocation over whether what she's doing is actually wrong, it totally is and she knows...

The question of the symbolism is twofold. First: Did Battler and Eva both do something to cover up what happened, or did they both just remain silent so their knowledge would be lost to the world?...

It strikes me as an obvious parallel to Maria's "therapy" in ep4. Imagining killing the people who have wronged her, wringing out all the negative emotions, and maybe going a bit too far for the sake...

Maria actually maybe could have been the narrator of Turn. The First Twilight is dedicated to her, she has that scene at the end with Rosa, and so on and so forth. The problem is that if that's true...

If the text even remotely resembles the narration, Maria couldn't possibly have been the narrator of any of those episodes. Unless we're seeing a complete rewrite, I have to assume Battler was always...

Technically, we're never told in the VN which episodes are message bottle stories (except that Land was one of them and was lost). It's always been assumed that the two known message bottle stories...

That story was also a lie in the first place, so where the cutters were isn't terribly relevant. Plus they could just be wherever the plot decides they need to be, honestly. In ep1 they were in...

I thought the wire cutters were kept in the boiler room, not the storage shed. In fact I thought Battler had to retrieve something from somewhere else in ep4 to open the storage shed.

As far as we know, Yasu did stop, or possibly she didn't get started, and if your summaries are accurate probably never intended to "actually" directly kill anyone by any standard means. If people...
