The Lost Village – Episode 10

Welp, any fears that The Lost Village would get more coherent as it moved towards its conclusion were pretty much put to rest this week. The theme here seemed to be “let’s do every single reveal at once, thus rendering them all meaningless.” It was a bold and characteristically Lost Village tactic, and it worked like gangbusters – nothing here made sense, none of it had any impact, Mikage and Lovepon better sort this shit out. If The Lost Village doesn’t come down to a climactic battle between Lovepon and Koharun, I will be deeply disappointed.

You can check out my full review over at ANN, or my notes below!

The Lost Village

Mitsumune has escaped, and is Mitsumune!

A heartfelt conversation with his ridiculous dad

“Monsters are scary, but Masaki’s just a girl”

Oh no, Piitan’s sick of the lovey-dovey act. The only element of her character that exists

“Let’s just chill.” Organizer dude (Dahara) is done with it

“Dahara, you’re a smoker?”

Another one of their generally absurd arguments

“But you guys were so gung-ho before!” Pfff Mikage, expecting consistency out of these characters

Nanko team meets a loner out in the village outskirts

It’s Reiji! And Maimai already wants to punch him for being a jerk

Masaki’s feelings for Reiji are apparently one-sided

“You’re an enemy to all women. I’m going to punch you. Let me punch you!”

IT’S YOTTSUN DUN DUN DUN OMG

“You’re!~ …what’s your name again?”

Nanaki is “that annoying monster from your past”

“God told me everything”

“I’ve been researching Nanaki Village for a long time” -explains nothing-

Lion’s powers just keep emerging

LION WAS ACTUALLY A FORTUNE TELLER

“When a past so complicated you can’t even label it as difficult, lonely, or sad takes form, that is Nanaki”

“Is that where Nanaki Village gets its name?”

Even God has a tragic backstory

Judgeness and Jack both work for “Boss.” This scene is also a ridiculously place, tension-free non-sequitur

“Losing your Nanaki means losing part of yourself. As soon as I lost my Nanaki, my body started aging rapidly.” Yes, this makes sense to me

KOHARUN IS THE BOSS DUN DUN DUN
