This episode made me cry a little. It was pretty intense.
This is a cheerful optimistic image.
I think probably the strongest aspect of this episode was the imagery, especially as there wasn’t much dialogue. I know I won’t be forgetting the image of the pink tricycle anytime soon. I’m starting to think the imagery and symbols are what Bone is really focusing on, they say a lot using them rather then information drop through dialogue. Some of the images also show more then just a causal thought put behind them.
I’m really glad that Mari got a happy ending. Not just happy, really really happy. It was so sweet to see her reunited with her daughter. We also now know what happened to Mari’s husband…she’s had one heck of a tough life. Not to say that everything is going to be rainbow and sunshine for her now, she’s lost her house. But still, she has what’s most important to her.
And interesting implication was presented at the beginning of the episode—that Mirai might go into robotics because of Yuuki. She’s showing a newfound respect for them that we didn’t see two episodes ago.
An interesting possibility...
There was one thing I was really wondering about…Mirai left Yuuki’s backpack with Mari. I wonder what this says.
