usual drill folks!

Episode 16: Summary and screencaps
edit: screencaps are finally uploaded.

flat out revelations and truth.
Painful ordeal for Hanyuu, while Takano is delighted in the shadows...
That said, the PART C reveals how the beginning of the end will rise.

A neat paced episode, giving crystal clear approach of what happened. This is only the first glimpse of it, as the pieces aren't completely shown yet.
Nothing to complain about, as the PART C was not butchered, though a bit shortened. That said, things go serious, and i guess next episode will be BIG on revelations for the year 1980 to 1981 or even 1982.

This epsiode jumps around so much that I think people might get confused if this is the first time they watch this. Just in the A-part, we started from Showa 52, then jumped to S55, then back to S54 and back to S53. Overall they have covered about 12/14 pieces, so it'll probably be impossible for them to cover all of the rest in the next 2 epsiodes...


Spoiler for Kakera Musubi:


Since we have a well translated pieces section here, these are the numbers for those who are intrested:
Spoiler for pieces #:


In the end, this epsiode was nicely paced, and introduced many elements to the complex history. Next epsiode will probably be revolved around the events of S55/56

Why are they skipping around? Maybe they think showing the events in a random order makes it kind of like the game.

Maybe they're doing it in the order of dependency.

Wow, leaves a lot of musings/questions:

Spoiler for musings on episode 16:


All in all, awesome episode. I adore Satoshi and am starting to love Irie, despite his...lolicon tendencies. It is kinda heartwrenching to see what Satoko goes through and even moreso what Hanyuu witnesses, powerless to change it, over and over again (as well as Rika).

Taken from the game

Quote:
I do not doubt that Takano Miyo-san is my partner. However, there are certain aspects of her that I cannot trust everything about her. ...Probably, it is her extremities as a researcher which contrast largely with mine...

...Yet, how can I say that I am unlike her? Despite what I said, I stand here waiting in front of the dish with my knife and fork. ...Basically, I'm just whitewashing that I don't want to see the fish being prepared before my own eyes. But still, the dinner that she's about to prepare...is the one that I am anxiously awaiting for right now.

What a hypocrite. ...no, not her. I'm the hypocrite.

How can I say that I am different from her from what I have done in the past? I've performed psychosurgery with my own hands without the patient's consent, despite it being a surgery that may affect that person's life for the rest of their lives. How is that any different from what she is about to do now? ...Until today, I've never doubted my past achievements. However...I begin to feel sudden uneasiness when I observe her extremities

True, Irie has been too humanized.

I'm not really convinced that Irie was "salivating" about this at all. The quote (or even the piece itself) made him reflect upon the suggestion of Takano, which turned him off pretty quickly.
The problem is that the anime has absolutely no way to cover Irie's past (the reason why he aimed for Neurochirurgy and then ended up in Psychochirurgy), hence, it is impossible to show the struggle he had before.

Since Irie isn't favorable for such thing, but past isn't possible to show, they had to give him the fittest reaction which is "outraged, but can't argue much".
It was a decent "adaptation", as Irie's struggle would require half a episode to explain, but also to point, as it requires a monologue as well. In this episode, Irie was struck by this, and even wondered "is it forgiveable?"
Concretely, he was portrayed as he was supposed to be.

this is even more suggested in the piece of the "first sacrifice"
Spoiler for for space:

the rest is somehow the same, though Irie was trying to "persuade" himself of the justification of doing such.
So seriously, no, he was humanized that much. He was already like this.

Well, that animation quality is about the same as the last episode, so I don't have the reason to add points for that aspect.

The rest of the episode is ok. Once again, I think Hanyuu's serious voice needs to be more...assertive? I mean, her cute side is very, very well-done, but the serious side can use a bit of power. I think Yukino Satsuki has a better "gomenasai"

Once again, loved the scene after the closing credits. Now I know better than to skip everything after the song, haha

No what I mean is that Irie was made into too much of a good guy, they should have shown that he was excited... even if it was only a little bit.

Also in some pieces his thoughts are borderline sadistic

The thing is that Hanyuu is "not" serious, but rather pained. the "i'm sorry" parts were more likely some resolve and "kill feeling".

No, that wasn't exactly like this. Irie was "trying" to feel like excited, as he is remembering of his past, and "motivations".
These are still struggling like hell when he is "interacting" with Takano, and it is even more blatant when L5 are involved.
Quote:

Do you have some samples? because the "worst" are probably the first sacrifice and his past, which are mixed bag, more towards "uneasiness" and "struggle between researcher curiosity and human morals"
That said, for the specific period of time the anime portrayed, Irie is reasonably portrayed "accurately". Things might change later on, but with Satoko's case, i doubt it a lot.
