Takuya returned home too late to save his step-mother, but he’s not going to let that stop him from trying… again and again and again…
Spiral of Tragedy
Takuya raced home and charged into a quiet house. There was no sign of Toyotomi except for the dirtied sheets. He turned towards the bathroom, memories of his nightmare resurfacing. The light was on. He could hear water running. Without a moment to lose, Takuya raced into the bathroom to find Ayumi slumped over next to the bathtub, her wrist slit, blood coloring the water.
He bandaged her wrist as best he could and placed her on the bed before reaching for the mysterious device. There was no way he was going to let it end this way. This time, Takuya charged in a punched Toyotomi square in the face and then dragged him outside, but when he came back into the house, Ayumi was hanging from the railings.
Takuya tried over and over, each time unable to stop his step-mother from killing herself. There had to be a world where he could save her and there was no way he was going to give up, even if he had to live through it a hundred times.
So, this series has just been getting better and better, but this was next level awesomeness. It was just so utterly tragic and heart-wrenching, watching Ayumi give up on life over and over again. I’m stunned. This episode was just incredible. If you’ve been on the fence about watching this series, it’s time to get off and turn it on. I promise you won’t regret it.
