Well, I was totally wrong. How Evil is Inuyashiki episode 5?
Remember those guys who came after Hiro in the last episode? They’re still alive, and they were cops trying to arrest him. Apparently, Hiro was turned in by a neighbor. That’s how the police got his address, at least. The part that caught me off guard is that he retreated without killing anyone. I might’ve had something to do with his mom standing there.
We also got a little time with Inuyashiki himself. He linked himself to his phone and we learned he can fly into space, no problem. The focus of the episode was more on Hiro this time. Hiro actually got aid from one of his classmates. Yes, it’s the girl with a crush on him. She believes he’s innocent and gets him to lay low with her. Unfortanly that didn’t last too long.
Hiro’s mom was more than a little upset, and she made good on the promise from the last episode. You know the one when she promised she would die if Hiro was the killer? Yeah, she dead. Hiro, of course, mourned her death the way only a psychopath like him could.
He flew up into the air and cried and screamed. What? were you expecting something bad? Oh, he also flew to his dad’s house to seek comfort from his remaining family. Only to find a whole bunch of wild reporters bugging his dad. So, he did the only thing he could. He walked up to them and slaughtered them all in front of his dad.
He didn’t stop there either. After casually flying away from his dad’s house, he hunted down that neighbor I talked about earlier and killed him too. It get’s worse. That neighbor was posting less than savory things about Hiro’s mom to get other users on the website to laugh. I think you know where it’s going now. He killed them all.
And that’s the episode one long murderous rampage. I knew he was going to snap, but dang. That was worse than I thought it would be. Do we count a character degrading as growth, Chris? (Chris Note: Eh. The point of the character obviously wasn’t for him to “grow” to begin with, so that’s a bit of a loaded question. It’s uncomfortable to behold, but it is character development. It gets him to a point where he wasn’t before. No one said it had to be a good one. He’s intended to be tragic. Your mileage may vary on how successful that effort was.)
Well, anyway, I would say this episode was as evil as a Killer Robot Army. It was mostly killing in this episode, not saying it was bad. But there was more plot than story. (Chris Note: Actually, by definition, this is the exact opposite. The episode doesn’t advance the overall plot much, but does trigger a development of a character in a drastic way). I K-knew that… If you like what you read check out our reviews.
Well, That’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
