Well, in fact, i was more likely talking about the environment, which is utterly not possible to control, of course.
Everything is rather something similar to a check point in a gamere, whereas each reload will simply recreate the given "world" with the recorded informations done by the "player" (Rika), and using variables for uncontrolled point (thus... the REST )

Well then, not late this time, here is the analysis of the week, but a bit shorter this time considering the content of this episode.
Episode 8 : Analysis

Next week : EPIC !

Am interested what's going to happen next time. Certainly seems Keiichi is going to try and impress yet again. I can see him lobbying at least the school together. Either to try and convince those social workers again or taking Satoko away from her uncle.

It does take something to keep your cool in a situation like Shion freaking out. Not bad keeping his speech going even after getting smacked in the head with a chair. Last thing they needed was Shion getting on a rampage since it would've no doubt sent things into an even worse situation.

Towards Teppei's house.

Wow, this one is really interesting. I agree that Keiichi is getting awesome now, and I was surprised that Rika snapped too. If only we could put all these characters in the Jerry Springer show.

OMG on that sig.

I noticed that Kameda is on the preview for the next episode... and hell, he's eating sweets.

Seriously, K1 sure doesn't need a bat all the time to solve things. Never thought he was such a smooth talker. Now I wonder if he can do it with girls... in "another" manner. Anyway, that's just random thinking.

Keiichi can be a pretty convincing guy...when he's not consumed by paranoia himself that it.

Well that episode was... magical. I mean, it was just plain old-school awesome. Just so intense and well done.

The preview for next episode looks similar, as well - but there seems to be an all-too familiar scene in there which suggests that it may well end badly...

This might be a little off topic but: shouldn't it be really easy for rika and Hanyu to find out who is the mastermind? After all hanyu could just float around and follow one of the "janitors" or men in green and see who is commanding them. I'm perplexed as to why they had not tried this.

1. Hanyuu isn't all-powerful.

2. They never expected the "janitors" as the reason for the disaster.

3. They already got enough on their hands trying to stop Rule X from happening.

It's not that Hanyuu's not all powerful, it's that she's a chicken. She would never hang around with Rika as she waits for death because she'd be too afraid to watch what happens.

Rika going crazy and telling Takano and Irie how they're going to die was a well done scene.

Cant wait to see next weeks ep

Well I guess it does take time to get from the school to Satoko's place. If your serious killing the guy shouldn't be all that complicated I guess. Important lesson of course to not broadcast your killing plans to people.

But that flies in the face of the current "YOU have the power to change destiny!" vibe that's going on.

Of course, this arc will undoubtedly have a bad ending since there's one more chapter to go -- but that doesn't mean that they can't get Satoko away from her uncle.

And that could very well happen in this arc -- they've spent so much time on "Rule X" in the past chapters; about each other main character going insane -- that perhaps now they'll focus more on who's killing Tomitake/Takano/Irie.
