Shuffle Memories – 07

The second and final part of Kaede’s segment with her breakdown at seeing Rin with Asa.

Impressions:

Well this is the end of the Kaede segment. I have to say they did a great job. For summarizing this arc in two episodes they did a good job. Not just having to deal with the whole incident at the end, but they had to build up what her character was like, which added even more to the drama of the events that happened. Kaede’s arc still fascinates me as one of the most in depth psychological problems and drama in a series. Most problems don’t stem this far down into motions and the psychology behind reasons and emotions. Sure you get someone saying how they love so and so but can’t be with them, but this one went way beyond that. Dealing with someone devoting their life to someone else because of guilt but in reality it’s because they just want to be with them. It’s a damn interesting problem which they showed extremely well.

It still makes me wonder what they are going to do with episode 14 and up. Assuming there is even more then 13 episodes. It will take up to episode 13 to complete all of the girls’ arcs. After that I’m really not sure what they are going to do. I actually don’t know how long this series is though so it could be the end with that, although there seemed to be as promise of new material. Either it will just be up until episode 14 with one episode of new material or they will go into some of the other characters like Midori, Mayumi, and the teacher, and then have several episodes of new stuff. I would still like to see some of the other characters featured, not with two episodes or anything. That’s kind of a given since they started getting the finishing half already. Still, it would benefit from having some more episodes with side characters and then plenty with new characters. They’ve done a great job summarizing events and characters so any new material seems possible.
