At this point, it is becoming hard to justify the inactivity of the show. For even with a new Dreams of Alice user being introduced, I find myself being pushed toward sleep.
The Evil Witch: Sana, Ayumu, Hatori
A new Dreams of Alice user appears, and it seems she got her powers from prayer. For with her parents often arguing about her, she prays for the powers to end their argument. Something which she gets with a caveat. Said caveat being, she can’t use her powers for evil or outright selfish reasons. For, if that is done, it seemingly turns people into puppets, or maybe zombies.
Something she herself is unable to reverse so she finds herself with parents who are shells of their former self. Thus prompting her to run away. However, her friend Ayumu doesn’t let her do so alone since she did participate and take advantage of Hatori’s powers.
But then Hatori uses her powers and it freezes Zoroku, the twins, and other people Sana cares about. Miraculously, these three come face to face and it almost seemed like a battle would happen. After all, the situation is leaving Sana frazzled and she does not like to be frazzled.
However, in the long run, all that happens is Sana takes everyone out of their stupor. She doesn’t get to harm Hatori as she would like nor do we see her hang out with the twins, as planned. She is just left exhausted after running around, undoing Hatori’s mess, by accident, and trying to fight her. So exhausted that she collapses.
You know, it is hard to know where that line is where you have to admit you are just making excuses for a show. However, I feel like Alice to Zouroku is pushing me toward that line. For while I appreciate the massive bits of normalcy, I need something real to happen. Not this Hatori, “I accidentally froze a city” nonsense. I need a real villain, a real threat, and with there being only a handful of episodes left, I fear a quality villain can’t come about. So, really, outside of finding out the origins of Sana or how people get these magical powers, I don’t see a positive way forward. Well, that and possibly figuring out why there are so many glitches with everyone’s magic.
