Please… just stop.

Here’s my review.

Yes my pleas are getting desperate at this point, as Glasslip has hit that point where it’s just… what? Nothing is happening. The story? Plot? Where did that go? Was there even something to begin with? I can’t remember at this point.

So this week on Glasslip we’ve got some things that happen but despite the most intense drama yet, I’m still leaving this one how I entered it, disappointed. What P.A. Works is doing is  exactly what I feared from the start: all style and no substance, and by this point it’s just turning into a bunch of random events that have no general direction.

So instead of breaking down the events of this ep like I normally like doing, I want to talk about my latest theory I’ve arrived at regarding why everything is happening like it is. Ready? Okay, let’s start.

Sachi. Yes the silently crazy girl is actually the one behind everything that is happening? Why? Well remember ep 2 when she said this:

[Kaylith] Glasslip - 02 [720p][9E69FD95].mkv_snapshot_07.07_[2014.07.12_15.02.44]

This right here is the key! She started everything! Think about it for a second: Sachi first mentions that there is a no dating policy in their group, Touko then announces later that said policy is officially removed, thus starting the ball rolling. From there Yuki confesses to Touko, which is overseen by Yanagi who got the news from Hiro as he was there when Touko made the announcement.

After Touko denies Yuki, he starts to get really emotional/depressed (he needs to spend more time with Keanu Reeves on the bench) and from there Yuki’s just been going through hell since. He’s tried to talk with Touko again but to no avail, his step-sister Yanagi has confessed to him (incest much, but you know…), he lost at the track meet, it’s all been utter shit for Yuki; no wonder he punched the annoying prick David, he just wanted to vent.

Sachi is the mastermind behind all this as she planted the idea with Touko, knowing she’d want to reverse that policy. Why do I say “knowing she’d…” well because Sachi can also see the future and she wants to fuck everyone’s lives up because she’s a twisted, sinister, amoral, emotionless, psychotic, killer of a person who is using the cover as being a weak, frail girl to get close to everyone, only to fuck them over later.

[Kaylith] Glasslip - 06 [720p][8BE34C9F].mkv_snapshot_13.54_[2014.08.10_17.46.20]

By her planting the idea, she’s been able to slowly destroy the group, except Hiro, as he’s too obsessed with her to realize what’s going on. As fate would have it, Hiro will be the first to die as he’s oblivious to the fact he’s spending each day alone with a satanicly evil person like Sachi. Hiro will end up dying a horrific death involving Sachi chewing on his dead body (not eating it, but chewing on it like a dog chews on a bone).

What’s more, Sachi could also have the power to control the visions Touko and David have, as so far none of the visions have made any sense. Take ep 2 for example (yes ep 2, in retrospect was very important) as Touko’s first vision with David was a train seemingly hitting someone. Why is that not talked about anymore? Touko would go on to see a crying Yanagi, Sachi in hospital (which might have just been a vision planted by Sachi herself), David smiling(?), and in this ep, two people about to kiss. Side note here, but there is no proof that it’s actually Touko and David about to kiss, hell it actually looks a lot like Yuki and maybe Touko actually.

[Kaylith] Glasslip - 06 [720p][8BE34C9F].mkv_snapshot_21.42_[2014.08.10_17.51.53]

Why is Sachi doing all this though? Well does she have to have a reason? “Some men just want to watch the world burn”, maybe in this case it’s some girl wants to watch the world burn. Sachi doesn’t have to have a carved in stone reason why she’s doing all this as she’s completely and totally crazy, so maybe this is just fun to her.

But stepping back and looking at it, you have to admit Sachi is to blame for everything that’s happening. Maybe at some point in the future, had she not said anything, things might have ended up in a similar situation, but she really pushed the envelope with this, planting the idea with Touko about having a policy against dating, only to have it removed by her, thus starting a chain reaction that would end up ruining everyone.

Had Sachi not said anything, the awkward as fuck situation between Yuki and Yanagi wouldn’t be as it is now, Touko and Yuki would also probably be on better terms, Hiro wouldn’t be hanging out with Sachi, but that’s probably for the best as he’d at least stand a chance to get away before the killing begins.

How David fits into all this, well like I said above, Sachi must know about his powers as she had the strangest reaction when he first walked into the cafe at the end of ep 1:

I’m guessing David is just the edgy guy everyone hates. He’s got family issues (we see his mom in this ep, who was quite beautiful actually) but all the trouble regarding his family has made him this edgy. No, I don’t like him anymore than I did in ep 1 (first impressions are everything) but I think that seems like a good reason behind his edginess.

Right then, that’ll bring this post to a close then. Let’s take a look at some screen shots.

And so that brings Glasslip ep 6 review to an end. If you’re still on board this one, what are your thought so far? Like it? Hate it? Predictions about what’s to come? Let me know in the comments!

So I’ll be working on the Rail Wars ep 6 review, don’t expect a long review, and I’ll aim to have it out tomorrow. Justin has been away for a bit, but he’ll be back really soon and be posting reviews once again. Make sure you guys read his reviews too, okay? And leave him some comments as well!

Before I end this, here’s what we can expect to see next week in this drama filled disaster.
