The SSS break into Tenshi’s room while Iwasawa leads an effort to distract everyone.
Ok I’m really betting on my earlier guess that this is a world full of people who committed suicide. Sure there is a possibility that Iwasawa died of her injury. It’s entirely possible she died that way. Of course she was in a position where suicide would be very possible. Her parents had made her life hell for such a long time. Finally after all of that she found a way to live her life as she wanted to. Then near the end they take that away from her with their incessant fighting and now she can’t sing anymore. Considering she leaves it with this vague “my life just ended” line it leaves us to piece things together.
I’ve got to say Yuri is a very astute leader. Her group is full of complete idiots. Of course they couldn’t crack the password the last time they came. Anyone would have a semi-decent password guarding their personal computer. What did they try in order to crack it last time? Putting in password attempts like “god”? Considering this group I really can’t put it past them.
No doubt that cracking the computer lead to very interesting information. I mean getting data on Tenshi (I’m going with this since just about everyone else is) is pretty big all by itself. While they probably have seen most of her abilities it does show what else she might have up her sleeves. At the same time it makes you wonder just what Tenshi is. We got to hear her monologue a little. It wasn’t enough to deeply probe into her personality, but she did seem bothered by people treating her like the bad guy. At the very least she does have faith in that she is doing the right thing. Regardless it does beg the question of what Tenshi is exactly. She gets her abilities in a similar way to how the SSS gets their weapons. Yet obviously their methods of taking action are very different. The SSS are making items from memories and Tenshi is making pretty fantastical abilities. The method hints that they are similar, but what is the difference that makes their abilities different?
Now of course this just leads towards the theory that this is some artificial universe. I mean Yuri brought up the key question. Why does Tenshi have to make her own abilities? Shouldn’t they just be given to her? God makes the world and hands out powers to Tenshi to help keep things in control. This whole making her own abilities makes me wonder just what Tenshi knows about the situation. Could she be in the dark as well? The artificial universe theory does have some legs to stand on. With the two stories can piece together a possible common situation. Everyone there possibly attempts suicide, fails, and are put into this artificial place to help try and work through the issues that brought them to that point.
Still there is nothing really solid yet to make any certain judgments. Iwasawa`s vanishing could be interpreted as being part of this purgatory afterlife. She’s worked through her problems and is ready to move forward. Of course this kind of hurts the virtual reality theory. If her inability to sing brought her to that point wouldn’t she just be back in the same position upon waking up? Anyways the virtual world might be too obvious to move on. Maybe God is a mean guy who makes even his minions work for their skills.
Anyways this episode was pretty important for more background and information on Tenshi. Should be key to keep an eye on the ED and wonder just who will vanish from that group after Iwasawa.
