Charlotte Episode-9 Review

Overview: (No Spoilers)

Episode-10 (Looting) continues with the story that Yuu's elder brother Shinsuke is telling him. Shinsuke used his time leap ability multiple times to win lotteries and earn money to establish a better future for teens with special abilities. Yuu then takes this ability from Shinsuke to save their sister Ayumi.



My Review:

Another fast episode, its getting difficult to keep up (just kidding). The first 5-6 episodes of Charlotte were pretty damn slow and now we get smashed with superfast episodes one after another. 

Jumping back to episode-10, although it  created too much favorable situations for out MC that it feels easily predictable, nevertheless, it was a fine episode with great twists and turns. 

I like how Yuu changed from a selfish little brat to a mature and kind person.

Now, it is revealed why Shinsuke is blind. The time leap (or time lapse) ability is similar to using a Mangekyo Sharingan (Google it if you don't know 'bout it), as both result in loss of vision with usage.

It was great to see Ayumi again, I can't get enough of her. She is alive again, so I don't have any complaints with the ending of the episode.

I have to agree that the episode was filled with overwhelming optimism, so much that it bored me a lot, I mean everything was bound to be perfect for the characters. Mix this up with the lightening fast pace of the episode and you will understand what I am trying to say.

Nevertheless, Charlotte is a great anime and although episode-10 had a lot of negative reviews on MAL discussion board, it is still a good episode and not all that bad as some haters are trying to say.
