Chaos;Child – All About Nono

Review

I’m kind of glad I waited to watch this episode. After absolutely loving the last one I found this one a little lackluster in some respects. We knew someone was mind controlling Shinji but we didn’t get any more information from that. Well, unless you could the fact that there’s seemingly two people involved; not one.

Nono was finally confirmed to be something other than she seemed and it almost made me wonder if all the portrayals of her so far have been to highlight the fact she wasn’t who you thought she was. It turned out that Nono had died in the incident and Senri managed to assume Nono’s form and became her to move on and escape from the hospital. It makes sense given everything we’ve seen.

There’s not actually too much to say about this episode. I wonder how much longer they’ll drag out who the real killer is and hopefully it won’t go past 10 episodes because I don’t know how much longer it can carry on while still being enjoyable. It’s on the verge of taking too long now. This episode wasn’t a terrible one, but it wasn’t one of the best. It’s good enough to keep me watching, but not good enough to have me on the edge of my seat. It was only the very final scene that had me wanting the next episode.

Currently, my call is for the killer to be Serika… The fact she seems to have the exact same phone from the prologue (or at least phone charm) has been bugging me for a while.
