Yukako’s arc comes to and end and we “conclude” on the smaller portions of the first half of Part 4, at least not counting next week’s episode which happens to be one of my most anticipated “fights” after Keicho’s Bad Company. We still have one more regular character introduction in the future but we’ll get there when the time comes so let’s focus on our resident yandere for now.
Praise to you DavidPro, you’ve made one of the scariest girls in the entire series look beautiful as well as made her sound so heavenly. But the scary part is that they actually did all that good stuff on Yukako. Araki’s style of female characters never really struck me all that hard but Yukako was definitely scary as all hell when she freaked out and her scariest levels of facial expressions haven’t surfaced yet.
But yeah, I’m still taken aback at how fast Koichi’s development occurs with how quick the gap between The Lock and the 2nd part of Yukako’s introduction turns out.
I guess it would be understandable not to show Echoes Act 1 in the OP since it was going to be revealed anyway. David Productions had me worried with their 3-episode rendition of the Nijimura’s Arc but thankfully, we don’t need to waste time with the two weakest “fights” in Part 4. This week, we got Tamami Kobayashi and The Lock and next week we similarly got another one-episode fight with Toshizaku Hazemada.
And wow, looking back, Koichi’s development went through a lot faster than I initially thought. Also, as much as I don’t want to complain about the new visuals, I really hope something happens with Koichi’s fat nose.
