Jintai’s latest affair makes those previous few seem hardly perplexing in comparison – the events to transpire this time around are incomprehensible at anything more than face value, and it’s quite dizzying almost.
Starting from the top, our heroine is enlisted by her grandfather to go find and escort his assistant to a designated meeting place – this request, however, came after a rather peculiar scene of our heroine seemingly spotting a sort of shape shifting shadowy silhouette of a dog in the distance. The specifics of the canine are unclear – although do note, the dog seemed as if it, for a moment, became a humanoid figure.
Now starting on the request of her grandfather, it seems that she goes through a process of events up until a certain point – at which time, an inevitable slip on a banana peel occurs, and the incident starts over.
Whilst her grandfather asks her to go find his assistant, he also ends up giving her a time-telling device – an unusual psuedo-watch, sundial. However, that item is simply one of the more memorable and recurring details in this series of acts – following the request, our heroine heads out, and upon doing so, she’s eventually approached by a fairy who offers her a banana as a gift. This banana proves to be a variable element in the repeating occurrences – and more than likely, it’s not a typical piece of fruit.
Subsequently, she encounters her grandfather riding a chariot – and upon their coincidental meet, he proceeds to explain a lengthy history to her. While this is a facet which does not change throughout the recurring segment, our heroine does indeed react to it differently each time. She actually responds in a slightly alternate manner each cycle through, and to each situation faced – specifically as she grows more so aware of the repetitive sphere she’s somehow become entrapped within.
The final two troubles she experiences before all goes back to the square labeled “one”, is that upon arriving at where she was instructed to find her grandfather’s assistant, the fellow is not there. As we learn, the assistant wondered off somewhere, and so our heroine heads out to look for him – yet in doing so, she travels within a forest, stumbles upon a clone of herself, slips on a banana peel, and all starts over again till the number of Watashis all grow to a seeming endless amount.
That abnormal canine of earlier is a repeating object throughout these paradoxical travels, which were, as implications do reveal, set up by the fairies for their own enjoyment – although the purpose or specifics of any of this all remain highly obscure. The carbon copies of our heroine were foreshadowed much earlier by a certain scene with a fairy – however in fact, this doesn’t matter. Hardly anything shown this episode appears to hold any significance, at least not on the surface – as either way, the assistant has not been found, and those dogs remain mysterious.
Yet it can be noted, our heroine apparently comes across her own assistant by the episode’s suspenseful ending.
Whatever is to take place onward from here, one can be sure that more than likely, it will tie together the many assorted developments seen this episode which looked to be level zero on the substance scale – or in other words, confusingly sporadic.
