Alright, so Crunchyroll just uploaded the new chapter of Koe No Katachi. The quality is far superior to that other one, and the dialogue made sense, lol.
That said, I'm hedging my bets on Shouya having a seriously fucked up shoulder.
Also, I knew Ueno would react the way she did. And Shouko as well.
This chapter really screwed me up. Because I can understand Ueno's rage. She's wrong for beating on Shouko, a defenseless and suicidal person. But her rage makes sense.
Nishiyama's mom stepping up to the plate with that apology really surprised me. In a way, it didn't, because regardless of her cold exterior, she's a bit of a teddy bear. I'm very interested in her.
Yuzuru calling her sister stupid was expected. She thinks that way.
Sahara finally stopped running away. Kawai's nowhere to be seen, Mashida is the same, though he might just be wandering. Nagatsuka (bless the dude's heart, probably the most undeserving of that whole incident) is there.
Back to Ueno, one of the most interesting parts of her dialogue is a single line,
"Without a single thought as to how we might feel, this idiot decided it would be the best course of action and firggin' jumped!"
I like the implication that she cares. Even though she's quite the angry, mean person, everyone's still a person.
Tenshi brought up the fact that they avoided showing Shouko's face. I agree that it made the whole affair even worse. Shouko's probably resigned to thinking that she deserves all suffering. This'll probably instill some hardcore survivor guilt.
Finally, Nishiyama's mother comes up with the biggest bitch slap of the year, lol. While I feel it was warranted, I feel uneasy on what the fallout is going to be like.
Yog, you are one cool motherfucka.
One day this child shall learn the beauty of life.
Thanks for being there for me, man.
