The thing that really got me about Houseki no Kuni is that for whatever reason, 3D animation in Japanese anime hasn't caught up to 3D animation in Japanese video games, and that was one of the first times that I felt like I was watching a Japanese video game (that I really wanted to play!).

That topic was on my mind because of people's reactions to Batman Ninja



Ancient Magus Bride 10

Spoiler:

- A young Elias fighting off Wolves in Alaska?
- Head-pats again
- White Reindeer who create ice below their hooves? Dat Santa imagery
- D'awww, even Silky misses Chise and Ruth
- Reindeer soup? D-did they cook the Reindeer they came on? Uh-oh
- First Santa, now Jesus.
- Her hand goes to her throat every time she talks about the past
- Prehistoric Elias
- D'awww, tiny Elias
- Seems to be some freaky monster shit in the next episode

Inuyashiki 9

Spoiler:

- The Inuyashikis are eating breakfast as the news is relaying that 85 police officers were killed by Hiro the night before. Inuyashiki is stewing, Mari is sort of noticing it
- WHAT ELSE DID WE BETRAY
- TURN INTO A MACHINE
- Mari's walking to school with her friend. It sounds like the asteroid is going to destroy the Earth, but everyone doesn't seem worried about it because they figure America will handle it anyway
- Multiple fan-clubs have started up for Hiro
- Episode name: People of Shinjuku
- Girls find him hot now that he's a mass murderer, guys are excitably trying to figure out how he did it (US Marine? Some kind of weapon?)
- Hiro cuts into the the big TVs across the country and lets everyone know that as long as the country exists, he's going to be persecuted, so he's going to kill them all
- After the broadcasting cuts off, he aims his gun-finger at his camera hand and decides it's time to start.
- Some people are standing in front of one of the public TVs and wonders if he's an idiot, one of the salarymen walking by gets capped
- Then a fangirl (I think he's killing people through their phones)
- Then more and panic starts setting in
- Inuyashiki and Andou have to find him
- The newscaster gets a phone-call from Hiro live on the air and answers it. People watching the news are getting excited that Hiro's on. Hiro says he doesn't like the newscaster. The news-guy says that Japan will never forgive him for his actions. Hiro shoots him through the phone and now the people watching the news are not so excited
- Andou reads on social media about the newscaster's death and figures out it's the smartphones and relays it to Inuyashiki
- Hiro says "35" and tries to get a kid to put a smartphone to his ear, but the Inuyashiki/Andou combo broadcast a signal to people's smart-phones letting them know that Hiro is using them to kill, the kid drops the phone
- Surprisingly, people listen to him. I feel like in real life, people would rather get shot in the head than get rid of their smartphones
- Hiro figures out what's happening, recognizes Andou's voice with his super-hearing, and gets a little happy, wondering how his friend did it
- Hiro pops back up on public TVs and says "it's useless to throw away your smartphones" and starts machine-gunning people from them. I'm sorta reminded of Las Vegas here
- Inuyashiki decides that he's going to Shinjuku
- Hiro's up to 100 kills, "that concludes today's quota"
- Hiro broadcasts that this was "test drive", 100 kills in 30 minutes. Tomorrow the "real thing" starts, 1000 kills per day
- Hiro figures that Andou "teamed up with the police" and that he's his main enemy now
- Inuyashiki-mom tells the kids to leave their phones at home, they complain, she asks if they want to die, they say "If I don't have my phone, I might as well be dead." Told ya Grin
- The news mentions the hijacking of Hiro's feed that told people about the smartphones, there's rumours of a "Hero" in Japan. Mari again looks at Inuyashiki, wondering if it's him
- People still have to go to school and work, and complain about it
- Hiro's having either a dream or a memory about Shion. Hiro asks her why they're still living where they're living, Shion says they haven't touched the money he's been sending them. She wants him to stop killing, but he says the only way they'll have peace is if he eliminates Japan, and asks her where she wants to live after he kills Japan. She just starts tearing up and turns around and leaves.
- Mari is still using her phone like normal, she ain't afraid of no Hiro. Her and a friend are heading to a movie together in Shinjuku
- Hiro's dream blends Shion and his mother together for a second, he wakes up.
- There's a plane and we seem to be focusing on a college girl, I think it's leaving for Japan. The baby in the seat next to her starts crying (the father speaks English), she uses a cute youtube video with her phone to quiet them
- Hiro watches the news and reads social media feeds for a bit, then slowly pulls out both hands
- Andou looks up in the sky and sees a plane arcing downwards
- It crashes near a tower, Andou looks on with a combined expression of horror and "Oh, fuck us."

I would recommend Kino no Tabi - The Beautiful World Ep 11. It's episodic so you don't really need to know much beyond the premise (an androgynous girl named Kino and her talking motor-bike Hermes travel from country to country).

Acks I recommend the entire series, but definitely that episode.

That sounds like a particularly dark one!

Kujira no Kora 10
Spoiler:

-they included the enemy soldiers in their funeral even though so much of the ceremony is about holding onto part of their spirit and hoping to meet again
-Eyepatch's wife committed suicide Sad
-holy shit, he's crying! ...and he's just like "huh, whose tears are these"
-that crazy laugh
-Suou swearing he'll find a way for them never to fight again, because war only makes victims
-everyone appreciates Ouni now
-the guy who's run out of thymia is dying, I guess they must always run out of thymia before they die, they seem to know what's up, like it's normal.
-the troubling, mysterious gift given by the enemy's dying nous unfurls into a cute cat-rabbit creature? That seems a little off-mood for this show.
-wtf @ those jesters
-holy fuck, Purple-hair survived?!? That kind of diminishes the impact of that death scene :/
-what is being a jester, that he's so horrified by it?
-the team from the other ship is weird-looking and feels kind of cutesy with the funny mustache dude and the different costumes.
-and then the nude prat-fall and the girls from the other ship all blushing and the over-the-top leader, I feel like this show's gotten a little off on its tone in general, I worry that it doesn't quite know how to hold it together or what the mood should be now that it doesn't have the focus of that first arc and that framing of looking back on the end of an age of innocence that we thought might be the end of their culture altogether.
-Suou is the prettiest dude in the universe, to be fair
-oh fuck, we've gone from war to annexation
-Eyepatch is on the ball.  Nod I'm glad to see not everyone is as trusting as Suou, the guy's really not equipped to deal with the world they're facing out there without some backup from harsher people.
-more comedy reactions Uh-oh
-the helm of the ship, becoming a people that can set their own course
-"life is a battle, eat and steal until you burn out" what the FUCK just happened to Ema???

Spoiler:

It did somewhat go there with the Giant Robot. She pressed the trigger on it and blew up half the city and sorta started laughing at how powerful it was but Chito punched in her the face and told her the destructive power wasn't funny. I think it was also meant to instill fear in the viewer because we know what Nuclear Submarines are but they don't and Yuuri might happily press a button that launches another nuclear war and kills the few remaining human beings Uh-oh

Feeding the animal bullets is literal though, it eats bullets and fuel and seems to have an electric charge that makes things work and speaks through radio waves. Chito was very "WTF" when it ate the bullet  rofl

Kora 11

Spoiler:

- I was somewhat wondering if this is just TV filler/non-canon to draw out the rest of series, which is usually the explanation behind tonal shifts in anime, but I guess it appears to be canon
- Even the Sand Ocean that the Mud Whale was exiled to is an "evil" one.
- World backstoryyyyy
- Orka using his underling to pass the buck onto the council
- Hrmmm, so the foreign people don't know how to use Thymia but do recognize it as something that the Empire uses
- Ohhhh shiiiii, Falaina eats their time to grant them Thymia
- Wuh oh, Marked vs Unmarked rebellion
- Careful twins, Ouni can kill the shit out of you
- Season ending ep next

Mahoutsukai no Yome 10
Spoiler:

-her expression goes blank for a moment when Elias says she should go on her own
-little dragon's all grown up
-the way they focused in on Elias while Chise's excitedly talking to the dragon, with Ruth at her side, pointing out that she's not totally alone and dependent on him anymore, and what does that mean to him.
- Elias' face is a skull, how does Lindel resemble him??
-the bird with the human voice freaked me out
-I'm always glad the other people in this universe thinks Elias and Chise's relationship dynamic is worrying; I was initially expecting this might be the sort of show that thinks it's just romantic.
-opening up about her backstory
-the creepy, red-eyed, horned skull-in-darkness flops down beside Lindel and is immediately adopted Laughing
-Aww, he shrinks down to kid size! He's so little and innocent, the way he trustingly puts his hand in Lindel's master's, it's kind of adorable
-the first thing he knows was just walking, and all he remembers is "red." Interesting.
-being loved is a curse/curses and blessings are the same
-again with the head-pats

Pretty interesting episode.

Kujira no Kora 11
Spoiler:

-finally starting to get into the religious part a bit
-interesting how the Empire has its own problem with forgotten history
-fingers shot off and he's just smiling. Shudder
-...and the 'weapon' he was pulling was records. SYMBOLISM!
-I feel like the external cultures aren't as convincing-feeling or interesting as the Mud Whale's, and the show becomes weaker when we spend more time on them.
-Eyepatch said exactly what I was thinking, it figures they'd move their ship by holding hands and singing Laughing
-wait, do the annexation ship's people not use thymia??
-discovering maps for the first time
-Noo, Suou, don't be so trusting! The enemy of your enemy isn't necessarily your friend!
-I don't think Ema/Neri looking happy is a good thing anymore Uh-oh
-Falaina eats the Marked's life instead of their emotions? Fuuuuuck. If they had to decide whether to keep dying young or switch to losing their emotions, that'd be one hell of a choice
-REVOLUTION! This storyline of dissidents would be way more interesting if the show didn't make the twins seem quite so evil. They're asking good questions, and the things that have happened should be making the people of the Mud Whale start questioning things they take for granted, and realistically, life-and-death conflicts about culture/tradition and self-determination and disenfranchisement between two groups that are so linked but also have such different paths will probably go to some pretty bad places without anyone needing to be eeeeevil. Even if their view isn't ultimately right or that movement goes a bad direction, it would be better if it was given a fair shake by the writers to start out.
-Nooo Ouni, don't join the evil twins-who-have-a-point-but-are-super-evil-about-it!

The tone seems more even this episode, I guess they were just having trouble with the transition.

Inuyashiki 10

Spoiler:

- Planes fall out of the sky and crash into Tokyo, one appears to crash directly at where Mari and her friend are at
- Inuyashiki straight up Superman's in public. Hiro drops a second wave of planes, including the one with the college girl, but Inuyashiki manages to guide them all down onto water and a beach
- Mari in a panic phones Inuyashiki. They're trapped on a higher floor and suffocating because of smoke (like 9/11).
- Inuyashiki says he'll be right there. And Hiro is RIGHT BEHIND HIM
- Hiro finger shoots him but it only pushes Inuyashiki back. Hiro realizes that there's someone else like him, Inuyashiki mentions being in the park that night when they were transformed
- Hiro asks him why Inuyashiki is getting in his way if he's the same as him.
- Inuyashiki responds "I only feel truly human when I save the lives of others."
- Hiro takes a step back, tears start rolling down his eyes, suddenly realizing. "Oh, so I'm the villain. And this old man is the hero?"
- Inuyashiki asks him if he only feels human when he's killing people. Hiro doesn't respond.
- Hiro starts justifying himself, but Inuyashiki tells him his daughter is about to die, so please stop killing people.
- Hiro angrily wonders why he's the villain, then jet-pack assist punches Inuyashiki in the face
- Hiro beats him up and pins him down with finger-gunfire. Inuyashiki finally raises his own gun-finger, "BANG" and knocks Hiro back
- They both take off flying
- High-speed air-chase with missiles and cars and things being used as weapons
- Mari over the phone is starting to fade from carbon monoxide poisoning, she tells Inuyashiki that she loves him and tells him to tell the rest of their family the same
- Inuyashiki knocks Hiro out of the sky with a volley of missiles, but it also knocks Hiro unconscious, and crazy-shit robot mode takes over and starts launching a billion missiles at Inuyashiki
- It KOs Inuyashiki too. Their robo-modes get close and start beeping and booping at each other
- And then the missiles start flying
- A satellite (I think? Maybe it's just an under construction tower) is dropping from the sky, robo-Inuyashiki blows it up, hides in the falling debris, jumps robo-Hiro from behind, rips off part of his head and his arms, and then seems to fall unconscious himself
- Hiro's dream continues, asking why Shion won't go with him. She's upset at everyone he's killing.
- Both hit the ground, Inuyashiki bursts back up, conscious, and busts into the tower where Mari is to save her
- She's dead.
- Inuyashiki tries to use his healing powers. It's not working
- It didn't work. Inuyashiki starts wailing as his memories flashback to her as a baby, as a young girl etc Sad
- He starts doing CPR on her
- He keeps trying and failing. Finally he says "Thank you" and closes her eyes
- She coughs
- He heals her, she starts coughing a ton
- She starts bawling because he came for her, he tells her to hold on, she starts hilariously screaming as he flies her to the ground below
- He flies back up to the building to save everyone else
- He flies her friend down and brings her back to life
- Inuyashiki saves people ;_;
- The trains are running again, he tells her to take one home, and he'll be back by morning.
- He flies away, starts going to disaster zones, healing people (emergency crews are seriously WTFing at this)
- He's all over the news and youtube. People are wondering if he's God
- Inuyashiki finally feels like he understands why his life went it way he did
- Some women stumble on Hiro still where he crashed in an alley. He begs for water, they get him a juice from a nearby vending machine and ask if it's okay

Inuyashiki 11/End

Spoiler:

- Inuyashiki arrives home. His family is standing staring at him as footage of him healing people is being broadcast on TV
- They ask if its really him.
- He pops out all his robot parts and apologizes, because he's not sure if he's the "real" Ichiro Inuyashiki. He goes to leave, but Mom asks him about their honeymoon, and he remembers all the details so they cry and ask him to stay
- Andou's talking to Inuyashiki on the phone. Apparently Inuyashiki is so low-key at work that no one realized he was the God Old Man from the news
- Andou comes home, Hiro's standing in his room
- Hiro says "You got me, that old man was strong." Andou's panicking, but then he mentions he has the new issues of Shonen Jump and asks if Hiro wants to read. Hiro lights up and says he does, they start reading manga
- Hiro asks if Andou's still going to school and if anyone's bullying him.
- Andou excuses himself to the bathroom, phones Inuyashiki and tells him Hiro's there. Hiro's likely listening in.
- He comes back out, Hiro asks if he's made any friends. Andou says no. Hiro asks about Inuyashiki, Andou says that if Hiro kills him, it won't matter because Inuyashiki will destroy him. Hiro says he's not here for that, he just wanted to hang out and read manga.
- Andou says he's just a fake machine and not the real Hiro, and wonders how many people he's killed. Hiro stands up and tears are running down his face.
- Hiro flies away as Inuyashiki arrives
- Hiro's sitting on a park bench near the Watanabe apartment, watching news feeds and social media about people basically telling him to die. He tears up as he watches the Watanabe's enter their home.
- Inuyashiki's son is still getting bullied at school. While walking home with him, he says that he wants to be a machine too so he can be praised.
- Things are going swell, the Inuyashikis go out on a picnic and start planning a vacation (oh god, this is gonna end badly)
- President Donald Trump (yes, it's really him) announces that the asteroid will impact Earth, and that he's lived long enough and has no regrets and that the "rest of you losers can do whatever the hell you want" (Yes, that's a real line rofl)
- People have kind of just stopped going to work and doing things
- Andou phones Inuyashiki and says he's scared of the world ending, Old Man says "I'm gonna try right until the end." He fills up on water and tries to sneak out at night, but Mari catches him
- She doesn't want him to go the asteroid, but he blasts off anyways
- He takes one last look at the great Nippon from orbit, and then lands on the asteroid
- He starts trying things to wreck it but isn't getting too far
- Inuyashiki expends his water, suddenly Hiro's beside him and says he wants to try to change the trajectory, because even he has people he doesn't want to die (including Andou still)
- Hiro says that the "voice" that transformed them said they have the power to destroy the earth, and that if he self-detonates, it'll change the trajectory
- Hiro's hands are still gone, so he asks Inuyashiki to push his eyes into his head to activate it
- Inuyashiki phones Andou and tells him what Hiro's going to do, Andou starts wailing
- Inuyashiki asks Hiro what he was doing in that park that night they got transformed, Hiro just asks him to activate it
- KABOOM
- Nope, not enough :/
- Andou phones Inuyashiki, Inuyashiki tells him the "earth is safe because of Hiro" and that he'll "see him tomorrow."
- Arigato, Oyaji-san ;_;>
[Post-script: Mama Inuyashiki is working at a grocery store, Boy Inuyashiki fights his bullies, Mari is still writing her manga. She opens the new issue of Jump and finds out she won the Jump award for a new submitted series]

Holy fuck that was awesome, I was edge-of-my-seat just reading your recap. Really shouldn't have dropped that one, or maybe the recap was just that good. Thanks for doing it!

Mahoutsukai no Yome 11
Spoiler:

-little Elias can't ski  Laughing
-damn, these villagers are fucking efficient at mob-forming! Like, isolated village, middle of the night, deep in snow and they go from 0 to burn down the castle in the time it takes Lindel to run out the door!
-...and there goes Elias. Maybe they should have been a little less efficient at mob-forming Uh-oh
-he's eaten people before
-that's some creepy shit she's seen, a nice human-eating skull-dude isn't so bad in comparison, I guess? Shrug
-that little "I bet I'm tasty. Don't eat me" chibi bit was cute
-...in what way is he still 'stuck as a child??"
-she sees something wonderful and surfaces on her own. Her near-drowning experiences are definitely improving!
-I like the way this show develops little bits and details of magic
-and the gentle rhythm of work and wonder
-sending flowers through the water mirror to him is a nice bit of romance

Ancient Magus Bride 11

Spoiler:

- The house is so quiet and dark without Chise
- A little red-haired kid
- I dunno, if only the kid can see Elias in Lindel's shadow, maybe you could've just passed it off as a kid being a weirdo rather than running away and confirming it?
- I sort of like that Elias is a barely contained monster. Almost makes me think of Guts, in a weird way
- "I'm pretty sure I've eaten humans before." Goddd damn
- Yeah, that explains why he sequestered himself in his room and then left for the swamp.
- "I bet I'm tasty, don't eat me." Fishing for compliments in strange ways rofl
- It sort of seems like this whole apprentice and bride thing is all a half-baked idea of Elias', like he knows as a mage he's should have an apprentice and as a living being, mating and may re-creating are things he should do, but like Lindel said, it's more like he's watching from afar and missing the details of what it is he's actually doing.
- A majestic giant eel Shiny/thrilled
- Animated hair-cutting!
- Is Silky planting a fish

Kino no Tabi 11, damn you  Razz

Spoiler:

-girl doesn't remember her old name even though she remembers it changed easily to insults, you'd think that'd be enough to figure it out with
-wait a second, isn't Kino the girl with the bike?? There's two?
-it's a lot more disorienting dropping in to watch one episode of a show I haven't watched any of. I have no idea if it's normal for motor-bikes to be alive in this show and they're just rare so she doesn't know, or if any other inanimate things are alive, or if she thinks he's just being fanciful or what.
-surgery to be an adult, that sounds horrifying
-removing the child from your brain so that you can compentantly do things you hate Shudder
-special candies, I bet those do something horrifying too.
-yess, Kino, refuse to fit into that dystopian adult/child dichotomy, do things you like and be incompetent at things! Nod ...but maybe don't subject us to quite that much of your incompetent singing? Lurking/sketchy
-"is there any way I can stay who I am and become an adult?" One of the big questions in life Wink
-scary how fast that flipped the switch to screaming hysterical rage, this surgery/society is fuuuuucked up
-"it's rude to think we might murder you" and then those smiles, "we're adults, after all" Shudder
-they think what they're doing is okay to the point where they don't think it'll be a problem telling him they're going to kill the girl
-and the father's upset that he accidentally stabbed the stranger instead of his child, damn
-just quietly having a little conversation with the bike while watching her parents laughing while trying to pull a knife out of a stranger so they can stab her with it instead
-oh, she's going to be the new Kino
-as soon as the bike says "escape" she's getting the fuck out of there like she'd been planning it for years
-and now we sing

Interesting little show.

That's basically the origin story for the Kino we know.

The thing to me was both the adult/child thing, and just how quickly as soon as Hermes said escape that she was just automatically fucking GONE. No second thoughts, just BOOM before anyone can realize it

That's basically the origin story for the Kino we know.

The thing to me was both the adult/child thing, and just how quickly as soon as Hermes said escape that she was just automatically fucking GONE. No second thoughts, just BOOM before anyone can realize it

Spoiler:
Yeah, I liked that, it really gave a feel like as soon as she knew there was another option, every part of her was completely sure that was the right choice, no doubt anywhere, like it's a situation that's so deeply wrong that you can accept it completely when that wrongness is all you know, but put it against anything else and its wrongness stands out like flashing lights.

Girls Last Tour 12

It more or less explained what happened (and had a somewhat hilarious but somewhat horrifying moment). If you just want me to short-form what happened, I'll do it if you don't want to watch it Lurking/sketchy

Spoiler:

Chito and Yuuri's camera synchs up with the Nuclear Submarine's systems. It opens up their folder and they see all the pictures they took. There's other folders either on the camera or on the submarine itself that they start opening, and they started getting bombarded by picture and video from the old days, both everyday life and news feeds.

One of the key takeaways is that they developed an artificial AI or lifeform type thing that they could inject into machines and program the machines to basically keep building and remaking everything. At some point there's another world war (there's specifically a clip from CNN about "Japan declaring war" on a neighbouring country, which seems to end with EMP/Electromagnetic bombs being dropped everywhere, shorting out almost all electronic systems and probably stopping most of the robots and weapons from perpetually rebuilding themselves.

One of Chito or Yuuri have a dream about their grandpa and their past lives. They appeared to be your average poor/post-apocalyptic people living in some kind of city area, and then you see what appears to be soldiers moving into the neighbourhood. The grandpa gave them the keys to their little vehicle, told them that "they're probably small enough to fit through the steam pipe" and then you see him waving as they leave while gunshots ring out in the background.

Yuuri wakes up and then finds their little blob-pet thing, except it's huge. Then their little blob shows up and it turns out the big one is a different one. It swallows Yuuri whole (it was hilarious and horrifying) and then Chito gets her knife and gun and chases after it.

She finally catches up to it on the deck of the nuclear submarine. It spits Yuuri out and starts talking. It speaks, explains it doesn't eat "live humans" (implication being that the reason you don't see bodies is because they eat them) and that their chief function is to sort of clean-up what's left of the Earth, eating and digesting old weapons and power sources, and then the Earth can finally die and hibernate. It says that as far as they know, Chito and Yuuri are the only humans left alive (since the two girls have met others, it's just based on their own knowledge), and these creatures have scoured most of the world except for the top level of the city. The nuclear missile ports of the submarine opens and you see more of these blobs eating the nukes, and then they sort of puff themselves out to look like mushrooms and fly away while singing.

Chito and Yuuri lock hands and think it's fine if the Earth dies as long as they have each other, and then set out to continue their journey to the top level of the city.

Kora 12

Spoiler:

- Ouni's laughing, better stop fucking around
- Final Episode Name: "I'm glad I was born here" as it feels like it's splitting into two factions
- Ah, the Jesters are bodyguards for the assassination attempts
- "You should've dodged it" as he cut part of Orka's hair off
- So noble families in the Empire pass around Nous flesh to regain their emotions?
- It sort of seems like their "no crying at a funeral" thing was more protective, like they know they're exposed and out in the open in a large group and if they cry when a non-emotion type passes by, they'll figure out that they're the Sinners. But now they're sort of like "Eh, whatevs, cry all you want."
- "Hey Chakuro, do you think I'm weird?" As he's fucking writing on the walls
- Is that a little future archivist next to Chakuro recording things too
- That was a bit of a storyline jump
- Because that eye isn't freaky as hell

Houseki no Kuni 11

Spoiler:

- The giant monster turned into small cute little pig-puppy things, re-formed when they brought them all back together, just in time for Sensei to wake up and tell it to sit, roll over etc.
- There's a gem-girl who's not allowed to look at Lunarians at all that was, Alexandrite. She's with Phos while fighting one of the monsters, Phos drops her sword and is sort of holding it down. Alexandrite isn't even allowed to look at Lunarians, but has to pick up the sword to fight, her hair turns from blue-ish to reddish and she kills the shit out of it and turns almost mindless berserker
- Phos is kind of concerned because this giant Lunarian monster was basically Sensei's dog even though he wouldn't admit it, and he probably has some connection to the Lunarians (or might even be one). Phos is kind of upset about this, but Cinnabar tells her that most of the Gem girls already know and just keep quiet about it and trust sensei. Phos is about to confront him about it at night when everyone is sleeping, but then she has a vision of Antarc holding a finger to her lips to keep quiet about it
- There's a gem-girl born with holes in her body, the second hardest/strongest behind Bort, sounds like the second oldest of the remaining girls, and they fill it with gemstones they find from their birthing place to keep bringing her back to life, but each time they do it, it somehow becomes "a little harder" to wake her up (it's also how the Doctor character became so good at putting them back together)
- Dia got smashed to pieces by the monster and got upset that she didn't see the cute little pig-dog version of it, so one of the gem girls makes replicas for everyone, and then Dia happily turns around shows it to Alexandrite. We never see if she goes into a berserker fury rofl

This one might be one to continue a manga version of, they keep adding little pieces that make it more and more interesting
