Well I think you’re right on the money there.
But I was referring to was the murder, because of cheating. That’s far to common among adults, who have twice as much experiences as these teenagers. I’m not sure that happens very often to teenagers. I haven’t heard many stories where someone is killed because they are cheating on someone else. But if this happens so much among adults, it’s no wonder why teenagers ended up in a situation like this.
But your right, all of the events are kind of there because they are teenagers. I agree with you there. The show is age specific in regards to almost everything. It’s incredibly realistic. All these things happen in every day life, far to often. But I agree, that is indeed why it was so good. Realistic to the T. They hold nothing back, and were not afraid to show the realistic consequences of the actions of these characters.
I think it was important that there were no adults in the show. The only adult I even remember SEEING was their teacher, who both Makoto and Sekai disrespect, and do not listen to. I think that was intentional. Interesting eh? What are they trying to say with that. Kids don’t listen to adults, even when it comes to small matters. Why would they listen on the big stuff? Hehe. The creative team behind this are smarter then you’d think . They don’t spell everything out for you either.
"This combined with the fact that kids that age can be cruel and petty, always wanting what someone else has, leads to even more problems. "
Ah yes that is a theme I’m really interested in. Children and teenagers can be quite cruel and uncaring at times. Mohiro Kitoh deals with these same themes, and also about “power in the hands of children” and "is their truly innocence in children or is this a manufactured belief. This however didn’t touch much on those. Still these themes are very pressing, and I’m attracted to them, like people watch train wrecks. They all go together very well. This dealt with teenager sexuality, peer pressure, and the relationships heavily. Something Kitoh only touches on. But they all go together very well.
Anyway twisted, demented, and disturbing stuff. But great.
Was Sekai really pregnant? Ah-ha! That’s a great question. I love how it leaves the answer up to us. On one hand she might have been going off the deep end. On the other hand she was sick, and I’m not sure lied. I love how there’s no answer to that.
One more thing I noted. The cuter the character, the more it seemed I disliked them. LOL I wonder if that’s just me noticing these things, or did someone mean for that. It’s like an odd thing that I can’t help thinking about.
Setsuna = cutest, but I hate her the most
Sekai = 2nd cutest, and I really hate her
Kotonoha = least cutest, one I have the most sympathy for, despite going nuts
Yeah there were 2 OVA’s. I haven’t seen either of them, but I hear bad things about them. Still I’d like to check them out if the stream them legally or something.
Anyway this is a show I MUST buy. I really hope someone licenses it.
