The show that asdfsafe failed at blogging

Just watched episode 13 of Denpa Oto….blah blah blah.  You know that show with the weird opening and an unlimited amount of sparkles around Erio’s head.  Well this special episode definitely did not lack the sparkle overload aspect, since it was necessary to make Erio look transcendent.  This is acceptable, Twilight’s style is not.  Well it seems in this episode, everything Makoto believed and have tried so hard to establish was turned upside down.  Near the end, Yashiro showed up and told Makoto that she will prove to him that she is an alien with great power.  Yashiro tells Makoto to step back 3 steps and starts performing a ritual.  Almost immediately a meteor grazes Makoto and strikes the same place that he was standing only a moment ago.  The bewildered Makoto is left with unanswerable questions as Yashiro disappears during the moment of impact.  After this event, Makoto is back to wondering whether or not aliens exist.  And if they do, does that mean Erio’s past beliefs of her encounter with aliens was true.  If so, wouldn’t Makoto have wasted half a dozen episodes working his butt of in order to force his lies onto Erio? Wouldn’t he be the one who wasted time to cover the truth due to his small mindedness, instead of trying to find ways of proving alien life?

I really like how this show is a slice of life with a hint of aliens and how the writer does not chose to explain the alien aspect any further than it is.  This show is very much like Anohana as the true nature of the supernatural is not explored and the themes of friendship and family are more pronounced.
