Episode Summary: Haruyuki continues to search Chiyuri’s computer while she lays there…and doesn’t notice. Haruyuki eventually shuts it down so he won’t be discovered. Chiyuri decides to give Haruyuki permission to date Kuroyuki if that can help make him a better person. That night Haruyuki has a totally awful nightmare where Chiyuri and Kuroyuki try to have sex with him. SO AWFUL! Haruyuki meets up with Kuroyuki on the way to school. Kuroyuki apologizes for her attack on Chiyuri and Haruyuki apologizes for existing. Kuroyuki thinks it was stupid for her to suggest direct linking with Chiyuri but Haruyuki is like but I did do it? And he goes into great detail on how this direct linking took place. So Haruyuki stomps off very pissed. Haruyuki gets confused but is then randomly attacked by two girls in the newspaper club. They want to know all about his relationship with Kuroyuki. He is like we have on relationship and she is always yelling at him. The girls decide there is no real story here but suggest that Kuroyuki actually likes Haruyuki. This upsets Haruyuki as he takes his moment in the bathroom again. After school Haruyuki tries to walk by Kuroyuki but she smiles and suggest they direct link. She magically only has a short cable now so they will just have to make do. So sad! So Kuroyuki wants to know what Haruyuki found out. He explains how it isn’t Chiyuri and someone is using her. Haruyuki and Kuroyuki then take turns being suspicious of each other and accusing the other of things.
Haruyuki eventually says that Kuroyuki can use him in any way she sees fits because he is less than nothing and blah blah. Kuroyuki gets upset and slaps him, alarming the crowd. Before Kuroyuki can run away upset a car busts through the intersection and goes to hit Kuroyuki and Haruyuki. They Burst Link before impact and Haruyuki’s bully is the driver. Kuroyuki explains to Haruyuki in many words how level 9’s can do something awesome. They can use 99 percent of their points to actually move their real bodies in the Brain Burst program. She plans to move her body and push Haruyuki out of the way. This will put her in a direct path of the car and will probably die. Haruyuki begs her not do so but she explains she loves Kuroyuki (X___X) and wants him to become level 10 and figure out this entire Brain Burst program. Haruyuki is obviously confused and upset. Kuroyuki uses her 99 points to push Haruyuki out of the way and is hit by the car. She is rushed to the hospital and put in some super hi-tech pod. A nurse takes care of Haruyuki as he wants to remain at the hospital as long as possible. The nurse also tells him that Kuroyuki has been hooked up to the Global Network so they can monitor her. Haruyuki realizes that she is now online and her stalker will come for her. He stays up all night to guard the entrance and challenger the stalker first to protect Kuroyuki who has barely any points left. The stalker eventually comes and Haruyuki is horrified to see it is Takumu. Haruyuki challenges Takumu first and then THE END! X___X
Oh….I see. I saw last night actually but my brain needed to process this oh. And maybe I was being lazy. Probably moreso the lazy part.
But yes. A major scene has me rethinking a lot about this show and it is only episode 4. X__X There are 24 episodes for this series, not 12. Such a big WTF moment/confession usually happens later in the series. Yes I know some series, even some recent ones like Mirai Nikki, have had big WTF moments early on but this just feels different. Hopefully I can explain this better as the post goes along. But yes this twist has me X__X. It is weird, having such high hopes for a series that has barely started and being disappointed when things are going off the typical anime path.
First things first though. This whole direct link/interneting in the air thing…is weird. And maybe scary as this COULD happen one day. It could be the norm. And I can’t even fix the stupid spacing in my blog. XD How the heck will I deal with this? But putting aside how weird and new this is all to me….I think what I find @___@ is how Haruyuki was just clicking away (in the air) and Chiyuri noticed nothing. Like here he is, trying to pretend to have a heart to heart conversation and his hands are flying all over the place. Shouldn’t it be obvious to Chiyuri what the heck is going on? Like hello pay attention to me this was your idea. It looks weird and obvious, is Chiyuri dense? Is this supposed to show us that Chiyuri is sweet, innocent, and oblivious? Because it is working.
Oh and the whole direct link is creepy. XD I mean maybe typing in the air and pulling up websites anywhere and everywhere would be pretty cool but then everyone can see what you were doing? I guess that is why direct linking is such a big deal. Because it exposes you, like a private diary and what not. So maybe Chiyuri agreeing to do this really signifies how important Haruyuki is to her, how she wants to move past this. Or that she really likes him deep down. And of course this explains why everyone is gossiping about Haruyuki and Kuroyuki.
In any event, Chiyuri has given her blessing for Haruyuki and Kuroyuki to date. Because as the long time friend her permission is needed. I am not sure if this is all genuine or Chiyuri pretending to be happy for Haruyuki. Maybe if Haruyuki was off the market it would be less of a temptation, she couldn’t fall back on him? Maybe. And Haruyuki manages to apologize for things that aren’t his fault and spy on Chiyuri. An overall successful day of laying on your best friend on her bed YAY!
You know that tough girl named Kuroyuki? Allowed herself to get punched, went up against all the other Kings, and planned this elaborate scheme to get to level 10 by using Haruyuki? Well apparently she has been kidnapped and been replaced by her twin sister JealousYuki. Like wtf was this? I haven’t seen a bigger character change since the show that was Guilty Crown and Ms Insane Arisa. Granted I am a girl and can relate to sudden mood changes….especially when clueless boys are involved. But Kuroyuki has been hiding out for 2 years waiting for a chance to return to Brain Burst. Maybe she has been watching Haruyuki for some time now but I doubt it has been forever. In any event maybe she should suck it up and listen to Haruyuki give his mission report instead of turning into the green eyed monster. ON HER BED FOLKS! Measure the cord.
This was a serious conversation.....and yet I couldn't help smiling at the sign in the background....
What is not okay is Kuroyuki going I love you Haruyuki and I am so glad we met and BLAH BLAH! Like wtf is this?! Oh yes EPISODE 4! I….where did this come from? Again I don’t think Kuroyuki has been following Haruyuki for THAT long. But she is in love with him because he played one online game great. And is willing to die for him so he can achieve level 9 status without her and discover what Brain Burster really is.
Does ANY of that make sense? It took Kuroyuki years to get that far in the program. She spent the last two of them living in fear. Haruyuki lost his first battle and lucked out in the 2nd. He has MUCH to learn. And yet he is going to just go OH okay battling all the level 9’s now. Going to do this for a girl I have known for minutes.
:( Less talking would have made this more powerful. Have Haruyuki fight to bring you back and then say these things.
In any event…maybe this will get posted this week! XD Such a lazy Tenchi. But yes….Kuroyuki’s confession really threw me off and I am not sure why. X__X I guess I am worried it will ruin the rest of the series somehow? I don’t know, I guess I never got around to explaining this well. XD
