I like that even your 2-anime season is still actually 5 anime, it reassures me that there's still something predictable in this world Razz

Gleipnir 4
Spoiler:

-her sister not even noticing her while she freaks out about Shuichi, that devastating lack of importance, then another flip to being normal and calm and nice again, but that makes it almost more disturbing and then she just walks off like this was an everyday encounter
-Clair getting ready to kill herself to fulfill her promise
-fixing the mascot body by spending the mysterious coin that's the key to everything, parents everywhere have been undercharging for their stuffed-animal hospital services!
-ALIENS! Not sure about this, but I guess the show's been weird as fuck up till now, it might as well go this direction too?
-this show's so pervy
-"You don't get to choose who you are." I guess at least she's trying to practice what she preaches as far as "people who don't like anything about themselves should die?" Wink
-a lost alien just looking for his other alien friends is way too wholesome to be the truth for this show. And for that creepy guy.
-heartwarmingly telling him how things are better for her b/c meeting him gave her a place in the world, but the images are mostly showing her being a twisted asshole and enjoying horrifying situations
-Shuichi's embracing his new abilities now, like he decided to take on Clair's view of things
-I hope they're going to get into developing him more now; they've made it clear from the start that something's wrong with him, but he's mostly just acted like a generic nice protagonist up till now and most of the character insight so far has been about Clair, so if he's starting to lean into the fucked-upedness, seems like time to start showing us why
-It's weird how this classmate girl is drawn so much more cutesy than everyone else, like she's part of a different show and just brought in for contrast.
-"I'm pretty sure I'm not the main character."

Spoiler:

-why does Clair have freckles all of a sudden? Maybe to show they've been outside searching a lot?
-oh wait, my screen's just dirty Laughing
-showing a beautiful natural scene with great vistas to conclude that anyone who's out here is a monster - does hiking not exist in this universe?
-everyone else got a cooler monster form than Shuichi Sad
-I'm kind of sick of characters whose thing is being obsessed with fighting to test their strength; there's so many of them, and it's not a very interesting motivation so much as a quick excuse for an antagonist or rival that can go good once beaten if convenient to the writers
-Shuichi panicking and momentarily being the one to take control and attack
-Clair's always got an angle on everything
-why didn't she shoot right away? It didn't seem like she was hesitating b/c Shuichi didn't want her to kill him, so it seems kind of out of character and like it was just like that b/c it's more dramatic.
-and what a surprise, the strength-dude becomes their follower as soon as he's defeated
-Clair laughing like a maniac b/c not everyone's as strong as strength-dude

I'm disappointed in this episode. There was very little new or compelling for the characters or interactions; the fight didn't feel emotionally intense or genuinely dangerous, it felt like it was just there because they thought there should be a fight; the generic honourable strength-proving character.  The whole thing could have belonged to a random shounen fighting show.

Spoiler:

- No she actually has freckles, they pop in and out from time to time Laughing
- Weird that Clair cares about family and friends finding out now when she has none of either
- Animation quality jumps up when Clair takes her clothes off
- Could probably smash the guy with the gun, guys
- Oh and it hurt him IRL too
- He invented his own martial arts, guys Laughing
- I wonder if they split up, Clair with the gun and then Shuichi is just holding him in place so she can get a clear shot
- Eyyyyy called it
- He doesn't have a phone because it's not manly, dude gets it
- "Yeah, I couldn't do anything this time, but maybe next I'll be psycho like all my friends are."
- Did that guy have a telescope or camera-lens for a face

It's definitely gotten more generic once we got the weirdness of the setting out of the way, and maybe lacking a bit of mystery if the alien's telling the truth

Spoiler:
Yeah, I think it's sort of 50-50 whether they've got something more unique still going on to come or whether they're going to lose their way at this point. And since the characters aren't exactly likeable, I think if they don't still have some weirdness and mystery up their sleeves, it might get pretty pointless altogether. It'd be pretty disappointing if the alien was telling the truth, why set him up to be so skeezy and ominous if he's not holding anything back, too.

Spoiler:

- Clair should crawl out the back and Shuuichi should pretend to be inanimate
- Swimsuit so tight that you can see the outline of her bellybutton
- "Can I pet you?" Laughing
- Hrmmm, so Shuichi is technically part animal when he transforms
- Clair's sister is a known person
- "That person had a strong moral compass" No, they probably didn't
- She cashed in a coin to have cat ears
- Don't let her inside of you, she'll take you over and then Clair has no negotiating power, guy
- Just fuck already kids, though you might already be depending whatever the fuck wearing someone like a mascot suit means

Spoiler:

-I feel sad for Telescope-head and Helmet-head, they managed to come up with impressively uncool monster forms Sad  Though, honestly, except for the sister, all the women's forms are pretty lame or non-existent
-not sure why they'd let just Clair join while knowing she's working with someone who isn't revealing themselves. Personally, I'd insist on both or neither.
-couldn't have been that strong a moral compass if they fucked a student  Uh-oh
-her power requires having sex? this is getting ridiculous.
-and the animal girl's transform didn't even give her the stamina to go hiking
-oh my god, her transformation is just catgirl ears this show is getting too dumb to stand. Also pretty harem-y
-oh my fucking god, the poses they're putting catgirl in while she's trying to control him, with Clair it made sense she'd pose in sexy ways, she was playing up the sexiness on purpose, and how sexual it was fit with how they were developing their fucked up, uncomfortably over-intense relationship,fucked up, sexual power dynamics-y was part of the show; but with this girl we've just switched to cheesy harem shit for no reason. Like, it didn't need to be non-sexual (and shouldn't be, given how they've established the mascot costume thing), but they could have had this scene be intensely, uncomfortably sexual and full of weird power dynamics, because neither of them had intended to be essentially having sex right now and the girl seems really innocent, and intensely uncomfortably sexual would fit with show's tone, but the cheesy lightheartedness and panty panic humour feel just doesn't work.
-is it just me, or are people's arms being drawn skinnier and skinnier?
-Clair giving a considerate "I'm not against gay people, but we don't know each other well enough for this," to the girl semi-raping her as part of a super-power forced secret-keeping ceremony, when did she get so polite? rofl
-oookay, her powers don't actually require the fucking. Not not even having a contrived reason for it makes it worse, that means it's just her (only) characterization that she's into girls and therefore of course just randomly tries to fuck any woman she meets out of the blue at inconvenient times, what the fuck, show?  
-someone who just feels like they've betrayed the group will die too? It'd sure suck to be an overly conscientious person who guilts themselves over trivial things. Oh hey, I wonder if that means that Clair's immune, since she doesn't seem to have much of a conscience.
-And cartoonishly cowardly telescope head with his stupid haircut, why did they decide to hit us over the head with these cheesy stereotype characters all of a sudden?

What happened to this show, it's gotten so bad?!  At least it feels like there's still some mystery happening.

Spoiler:
Those things I was expecting (though the secret-keeper girl bit was a bit more random/shoehorned than the previous stuff, but I wouldn't have been surprised by it in terms of edginess and unnecessary sex), but the cheesy cutesy harem comedy stuff I wasn't expecting at all, and the cartoonishness of the bad haircut-guy and the previous episode's Honourable Fighter guy. It's like it had its range of badness that belonged within it, and now it's suddenly freewheeling into random new badness territories that weren't within the things they gave us fair warning of.

I guess the classmate girl that we've never seen what she has to do with the story from previous episodes had quite a different tone from everything else, and there was the cartoonish yandere bit with the sister, so maybe I should have figured from those that it didn't have a totally consistent tone and had the potential to veer into tropey territory, but those were both such a small part of things and so much less far off-tone than the stuff we're getting this latest episode that I didn't make that much of it.

Spoiler:

- "Would Elena really kill her parents?" I still think Clair did it
- I feel like a voyeur would wish himself to be invisible instead of a sentient camera, but maybe that was the whole "I had a clear idea of what I wanted" thing at play where he probably just wished for something and didn't think it through
- "Not that we have a lot of natural fighters in the group." You guys joined the wrong group Laughing
- "Father/Mother" What the fuck
- Why the boobs and nipples Neutral
- Oh shit, so he can take freakier monster forms depending on who's inside of him?
- Whoa whoa whoa, Shuuichi does know and have memories of Clair's sister?
- Maybe Shuiichi killed their parents.

Spoiler:

-so the sister has three personalities now
-It's so lazy that they brought in this cute, helpless character and this awkwardly set up scenario where he instantly trusts her and knows she's a sweet, good person and they just happen to have to go alone to the danger zone with her inside him and he feels deeply, intensely compelled to help and protect her, apparently just to be able to start writing Shuichi as starting to take charge of himself and act forcefully. It feels like they'd painted themselves into a corner and couldn't figure out how to motivate him or have him develop based on the story they'd built up till now and had to shoehorn in a cheap cliche to do it.
-what the fuck, that double-person monster?!?
-Father and Mother???
-holy fuck that half-person merged with his half-monster, I'm gonna get nightmares from this
-well, at least it seems they brought the ridiculously sweet character in to become completely scary and fucked up, that's more in line with the tone they'd set earlier
-I swear people's arms are being drawn skinnier each episode
-so he did know Elena
-"him?" why does alien-dude know him already??
-what power does Elena have over the kid, I wonder
-"I won't be allowed to die till this is all over."

Things seem to have gotten back on track. I guess they had a story gap they didn't know how to cross without just cheaply throwing some things in there to get to the other side, but hopefully now that they're on the other side they can keep going with the mysteries and fucked up high emotional stakes while keeping the tone a little more consistent.

Gleipnir 8

Spoiler:

- Ohoooo, cram school, a place he could've met the sister at without ever seeing or hearing about Clair
- Probably shouldn't induct Shuichi into the trust circle because his guilty conscience will eventually make him believe he betrayed the group over next to nothing, like "OH NO I ACCIDENTALLY ATE THEIR SANDWICH" *kaboom*
- Ooooo, also a place that Flower Boy recognized him from
- Shuuichi seems to not remember his past at all, maybe he died and was replaced by an alien
- "Who was better? Me or that girl." The JEALOUSY
- How long until Mifune climbs in him?
- So Shuichi's power is that he's the ultimate supportive beta-male?
- Shuichi knows her number? Why doesn't he remember anything?
- Oh, parts of his memories have been wiped. The way the sister reacted, she probably was the one who did it, but that seems pretty specific to wipe his memories and turn him into the animal mascot
- "I haven't told Shuichi or anyone else." She's totally dead in about 5 seconds
- Someone's already gathered 100 coins?
- Fourth group member for the black robes gang
- Ohoooo, the coins are in a relatively straight line along a certain path, if they follow that path, they hit paydirt and find the alien ship

So we've got the intriguing mystery back

Spoiler:

-flower boy saw him having friends at the cram school, but his memory is he was the only one there
- I'm really hoping they're going to go somewhere with cat-girl lying about not remembering that's not just cliche love triangles.
-still haven't gotten to see pretty-boy's fighting powers
-"you can't become one." At least this whole thread seems like it'll maybe lead to some interesting identity/purpose kind of questions for Clair since there's always been a question of what she's looking for in Shuichi rather than only being a mandatory "all girls must fall for the main character for no apparent reason."
-bringing back the dead tanuki thought from the beginning
-I don't quite get what Shuichi's so disturbed by with his friend going to hang out with those guys, just b/c it's out of character?
-also, why does he wear glasses if he can apparently see fine without them, even details
-and his sudden motivation to protect normal people and confidence is totally not working,  just forcing the "must protect cute, innocent girl" situation and then that apparently creates an ongoing determination to protect everyone really doesn't work for a character who's been this empty and unwilling/unable to push back against other people's wills for this long.  It's set this up as a pretty character-centered story at its core but is completely flailing around on that front.
-his power is to join forces with cute girls
-the person inside him can access his missing memories
-Elena crying as catgirl tells her she couldn't be totally erased from his heart
-catgirl's signing her own death warrant by saying "I haven't told anyone else."
-seemed like it was implying that Elena's the one who's got the coins & is going to destroy the world, even though she apparently doesn't want to
-I guess the purple-haired guy is that friend of Shuichi's
-trail to the alien ship

Shuichi's character development still isn't working, but we're back to intriguing mysteries! Shiny/thrilled

Spoiler:

-fresh fruit whenever you want it, this guy's the best teammate!
-this does not seem like a happy team bonding kind of show (almost wrote "team boning," which is way more appropriate rofl), probably don't let your guard down, Shuichi.
-so catgirl isn't keeping her info secret for any reason, she's just too meek to bring herself to speak up?  Neutral And here I was thinking the character was starting to get interesting.
-Clair's basically the only person who ever figures things out and outhinks their enemies, the one without powers here is the most useful one
-giant centipede, I'm sure the person who would choose that form must be a kind and pleasant person that they definitely want to meet
-all the badguys besides Elena and maybe some of her crew are annoyingly cartoon evil and most of their voices sound like they belong in a totally different type of show. It's weird how much this show's pretty gripping when it's focusing on the mysteries and maybe half of the emotional fucked-upedness and uncomfortably sexual personal scenes, but when they focus on almost anything else it gets tiresome really quickly, they put all their writing skill in one basket and I wish they'd realize that and stick to it.
-this is supposed to be a threatening scene but the ridiculousness of the multidirectional boob-squeezing is making me lol, he's just spinning them around like a jello helicopter
-they should make up some fake coins to hand over for situations like this
-it's not really plausible Shuichi wouldn't have noticed pretty-boy's smell just because other people seemed more intimidating. Strong smells aren't something your brain easily overrides.
-plant-boy turning away when pretty-boy keeps kicking the guy
-boss ripping out a tooth to prove his dedication to his underlings
-wait wait, hold on, if the gorilla guy is the boss' monster form, which they implied, that means that this other appearance is his human form, double-wide pointy-toothed smile and all.
-it would have been impressive that the bad guy ripped through the massive barricade of trees, except that there were huge gaps between the trees that he could have just walked between in human form  innocent

The first new episode of Pokemon since mid-April just came out, so either the anime industry is getting read to ramp back up again or they're clearing whatever they had in the can for this cour out and maybe they'll start fresh next cour (other endless anime like Boruto, Black Clover and One Piece still haven't released anything new, Digimon's apparently going to release episode 4 near the end of the month)

Gleipnir 10

Spoiler:

- Shuichi quickly revereses transformation to melt the gun
- Dude's acting like a yakuza boss
- Clair of course is hardcore, if one of the guys who was already beaten up dies, does it count towards Gorilla's deal?
- "To make sure you're a bunch of shitheads like us" rofl
- Clair's probably gonna pick Telescope Head
- "Madoka" Laughing
- "If we kill him, we'll be no better than him." Are we really moralizing as if we're good people at this point?
- Why does everyone know what those flowers are
- Hrmmm, Telescope Head is faking it because he's not dead from betraying them
- Of course Clair knows a poison flower (because she was probably dreaming up ways to kill her parents for years)
- Oh fuck he was betraying them
- Damn, Clair bet that he was telling the truth about protecting his friends

Spoiler:

-secret weapon failed
-melting the gun
-this show's random threat bad guys are all so boringly "muahahaha I get off on violence and rape I'm so edgy" generic evil, wish we could just skip the whole several rounds of establishing how overpowered and how terrible they are while the good guys struggle to fight back, and get straight to whatever result it's meant to trigger in the MCs.
-Clair cooly asking about what happens if one of their guys who was hurt dies
-they should try some kind of trick using Hockey Mask Lesbian's power to kill them
-"if we kill him we'll be no better than him," really? Even if that wasn't so incredibly tired and lazy a dilemma, this is about as obvious a case of "no, really, he's worse and this is self-defence" as you could imagine. On the emotional level they could not feel good about it, or even not be able to do it, but this is not an actual moral question and no actual person would think it is (barring extreme pacifists, I guess, but girl whose carefully thought-out power was to kill anyone who betrays her is clearly not one of those, so come onnnn).
-Clair being sweet to Flower-boy, it's so creepy how good she is at acting in the exact right way to get any given person to do what she wants
-some kind of murder-flower?
-And acting all cute while explicitly telling Shuichi that her role is to be the sociopath to deal with other sociopaths
-heartwarmingly hugging her and telling her they'll do terrible things together
-of course Telescope-head tries to betray them to the bad guys. Who could possibly have seen that coming. Sleep  But why did no one notice he was gone?
-At least now we know the secret-keeping power works Wink
-she used the fact that the boss cared about his people against him, score one for the sociopath
-"She couldn't bear the weight of her crimes but she couldn't run from them either." The coin was Elena's way of giving some of the burden to Clair, or asking her to somehow save her from it? (also, in the translation I was watching, they wrote it as "she couldn't bare it," and my first reaction was  "sure she could, girls in this show bare everything. Wink wink nudge nudg" Rimshot )

Spoiler:

- The Alien knew that Clair and Shuichi were connected to Elena. I guess Shuichi isn't surprising because he was probably part of Elena's wish somehow, but Clair being known keeps pointing me in the direction of "Clair killed their parents"
- And see, Elena seems extremely bothered by everything, Clair's just psychopathically moving through everything just fine
- Also if you kill the alien now, it doesn't take back what happened but it will prevent more of it from happening, so maybe it's still a good idea?
- Shuichi, can you smell the burnt flesh and see if any of it is still alive?
- Yeah, they burned a bunch of coin users to shit. Keep in mind, the first time Shuichi found Clair, she'd set fire to a place and was burning herself down with it. Def an arsonist
- "Would you like me to heat this up." Apparently Japanese lesbian dirty talk is about the same as asking someone if they want their food microwaved for them
- Heyyy, maybe Shuichi killed their parents in a psychopathic rage or like he was saying as a costume so they wouldn't have to suffer themselves by doing it and Elena used the coin to turn him back into a sweetie guy with no memories of the people who got him to that point, and now we're seeing him turn back into it again through Clair's poisonous self
- She jelly that he had Helmet Girl inside him naked
- Tadaimaaaaa to his empty home
- Ohoooo, they definitely killed one of Shuichi's classmates (probably that guy he waddup'ed to and helped bury the animal)
- The petals floating down the stream
- Ohooo, you can also trade coins in to remove your powers
- "We" didn't realize the game would happen like this. So it may not be an accident that the coins were spread out. And we're taking the "humans are kinda shitty" end of the spectrum by implying that it's humans who have turned it into a violent struggle for power
- Of course he knew he was being followed, and the blind guy's a samurai Shiny/thrilled
- Oh fuck, Shuichi executed sword guy himself... he's becoming more psychopathic silent
- He's a freaky octopus thing rofl
- Was a rumbling stomach the feeling of loneliness?
- So his race gained immortality but that immortality stunted their evolution and feelings, and now that he's taken human form he's "starting to feel alive again" by all the different and dangerous sensations
- The game was an earth girl's idea, what was Honoka's wish? Did she just say "I'll wish for your wish" and then he turned her into the Vending Machine?!
- Oh dearrrrrr, all her friends (Elena looking demonic, is that a small Clair?)
- Team Elena's guarding the ship crash-site? Or did they just get there first. I think the orange-head guy was part of Elena's group before, no?
- Is Honoka his murder ghost now? What the fuck, man?

That episode was really good, what the fuck?

Spoiler:

-Elena goes monster-form and grabs his throat as he starts praising Clair, there's a weird love-hate things she's got going on for her sister, I'm still really wondering if Clair is the one who killed their parents
-Hockey-mask put on a shirt and pants. I guess bra and hotpants is her "monster costume"?
-they're all so unconcerned about Telescope-dude being missing and probably poisoned to death
-"would you like me to warm this up for you?" Did she just offer sex like she was offering to go into the 7-11 and get her food heated up for her??
-Flower-boy and Pretty-boy realizing Clair and Shuichi must have killed  before
-Clair thinks Shuichi's feeling guilty, but he's just hoping they're all dead. And Clair actually seems to feel bad for having made him think this way.
-his bedroom looks so impersonal, like a hotel. Either background designer laziness or a sign of how blank he is emotionally.
-oh no, his friend from school is gonna be one of the people they killed Sad (though, the fact that'd mean his friend was an evil, sadistic giant centipede or something like that is equally horrifying)
-what the game's become isn't what "they" intended (not that he seems to mind, it's so interesting the way humans go murdering each other)
-Shuichi refusing to think about the fact that the people they killed were terrible people to assuage his guilt over killing them
-Blindfold guy survived and wants revenge
-thinks the mascot's powerless because there's no one inside him, but now that he's gotten a backbone, he's inside himself (does that mean this fight is him masturbating Uh-oh)
-turning his back on the guy who wants to kill him to take a phone call rofl
-fuck, he just takes out the gun and kills him
-it's been so long alien's forgotten what he really looks like and made up a cute octopus-alien form
-he didn't even care about finding his friends b/c they're all so jaded from immortality
-the girl came up with the whole idea of the vending machine/coin-collecting game
-Shuichi's one of her friends, I guess from the cram school? And there's Elena, and is that a wee little Clair???
-one of the other friends is protecting the ship, and is fine with killing people
-Honoka as some sort of glowing white angel of death protector?


They're back into the mysteries with some good, solid new info to feed it, picked up the emotional intensity, plus they've started figuring out how to fit the alien stuff better with the rest of it. And no cheesy romance shit, and not even anything trashy. I dunno what happened, but it's good!

Your theory about maybe Shuichi killing the parents then Elena erasing his memory to undo what it did to him is genius, that could 100% work and fits really well with the character arcs we've seen so far.  I'd say definitely in costume form and probably to protect them, that'd make more sense with how they've shown him dealing with violence and grappling with how responsible he is for actions driven by the person inside him, plus the way he was so empty at the start would really work with if he'd hollowed himself out physically and emotionally to act on someone else's will.

Gleipnir 12

Holy shit

Spoiler:

- Huh, so their friend who's using the ghost of the original girl who suggested the game already has 100 coins?
- Flashbackkkkk
- If it's basically a daycare, is that brown-haired girl Clair?
- Oh, that's Aiko
- Shuichi had goals, but when we opened the series he had nothing he cared about. So whatever wiped out his memories took a lot of his self with it
- This Honoka girl disappeared? Is that why she was hanging around with the Alien?
- Aiko doesn't care and just says "Eh, let's go singing."
- "If you find her, tell her to not bother coming back here." Jeez
- Hair twirling that isn't like Aiko
- So did she kill and replace Aiko or did she just become Aiko?
- The alien's using powers similar to Elena
- Naoto wanting to let things be, and it looks like Honoka-Aiko was getting bullied too? Or did she already tell him?
- "Is that where you buried Aiko?" Fuuuuuuck
- Oh fuck, he's gonna choke her out too
- "The Real Aiko killed herself." Oh SHIT, she was getting bullied
- Did the rest of them know it?
- D'awww, the alien actually liked Honoka
- "You can all disappear." The fucking death mask his face is twisted into, holy shit
- Clair creepin into Shuichi's past
- He hung up before she could hear the gunshot
- There's like an overriding theme of "you think you know someone" in this series.
- SHUICHI'S MASCOT FORM AS A DOLL
- Yoshhhhh there's another episode

Gleipnir 12

This is really weird, parts of what you wrote don't sound like what was in the episode I saw, at all. But more parts do, so I don't think I just watched the wrong episode or anything?!? I'd almost think I spaced out to an extreme and missed a bunch, but what I did see seemed like a complete episode, what the hell?

Spoiler:

-Okay, so Glowy-girl flickered to look like maybe-young-Clair-from-the-photo, who the Other Girl recognizesas Aiko, Glowy doesn't know who she is but Elena identifies her as the spirit of Honoka, who "that thing" (presumably the glowy-guardian girl) is based on. And b/c of Aiko/maybe-Clair's death (prob  suicide), the Honoka spirit/glowy guardian came to Other Girl to destroy her, with a power similar to Elena's. And Elena doesn't want her to get destroyed but also seems to consider inevitable.  So whatever Honoka did with the coins made her into some sort of spirit of justice or revenge protecting the group to the point of killing them if they even unintentionally harm one of their own, Aiko/Clair killed herself in the aftermath and Other Girl was at fault, and maaaaaybe Honoka-guardian brought her back to life (back to life wrong???) as Clair?
-Clair changed Shuichi into someone she can't become one with. Because he's got too much of a will of his own now?
-OH SHIT, IS HE DEAD?!
-which would make him like a reverse-ghost, other people possess him
-his eyes going blank when she asks him about when he saw his parents, I guess he's not dead, just forcibly oblivious to his parents being dead to the point where he doesn't notice no one's caring for the house
-that death-smell, and he suddenly starts flashing back to something and attacks her
-Not remembering protected Shuichi from Honoka-guardian destroying him like she did that other girl; that aligns with  them doing something terrible with the coins to protect the world from monstrous people but becoming monsters to do it and making Honoka into a justice-force that therefore has to destroy them? But where does killing the two sets of parents to protect Shuichi and/or Elena and/or Clair fit? And she said "protected them" at some point, so Elena did erase Clair's memory to protect her too, but her role still seems different and mysterious
-Honoka-guardian has a connection with Shuichi that's strong enough to provoke her into remembering everything - and him remembering everything could make her aware of him (again would go with her being some kind of guilt-tracker that he's safe from as long as he doesn't know his guilt) and if she does she'll destroy everything, holy shit, there's so much going on in this episode!
-I think I'm going a little theory-mad with all the new info and mysteries, I suddenly thought cheerful classmate-girl's hair is like a cutesier-style version of Clair's and maybe they're the same person and Aiko got split into a light and dark self after her suicide and I'm like 99% sure that's a nutso theory but my brain won't stop  Lurking/sketchy
-HOLY SHIT, Clair brings a mascot doll, he starts remembering, Elena goes monster to maybe kill him and HONOKA'S SUDDENLY AWARE
-THAT FIGHT
-Honoka asks who she is and his eyes go blank and all the memories of them as cute little kids
-Elena insists the glowy angel-thing isn't Honoka, and he just shoots her instead of remembering
-BUT SHE'S IN HIS BRAINNN
-"I am only interested in the bonds between people." An alien-like distant curiousity
-And then that strangely optimistic ending, "I'm not the main character, but together we'll find out what the story is."

Are you sure you didn't watch Gleipnir 13? Because Gleipnir 12 ended with Helmet girl calling Elena

I double-checked and it said 12. Maybe it was mislabled? But I don't think there was a phone call in it, either.

Go to 22:06 of Episode 12, over the next few seconds it should be Elena picking up the phone and talking to helmet girl and then the episode ending
