I never expected Manabe’s stupidity to actually provoke Kumiko into beating the shit out of him then talking with Kotoura without that false air of hatred at the spur of the moment. I have to say, being a dumbass sure is a convenient plot device to open the possibilities of mending relationships. Well, at the cost of Manabe of course.
The direction of this series is at the tip of a scale. I’m actually having mixed feelings if this series ought to pursue investigative work aided with ESP. Suddenly shifting the perspective to serious matters feels out of place for a series like this one. If possible, I would like it if Mifune ends it with this case and return back to their simple lives.
