Okay so the Kyoukai no Kanata feelings have stopped (hahahaHAHA oh man what a lie), and now I’m able to think a little bit clearly about what the heckie I just saw. I’m just going to point out little details and just strings of theory that will give me an understanding of what happened in Episode 10 of KNK, specifically the separate timelines and explanations for certain events.
I ended up writing a lot more than I had initially planned;; hehe.
FIrst of all, we have the beginning of the episode. Let’s start there, as all beginnings should branch off from!
Mirai gets a call from Izumi Nase about seeing her, and it seems like she has already packed all her items. Either that, or she is unpacking them at her new home. I would go with the first option, because it seems like she has her suitcase ready to leave, and she goes into the train station with luggage after the phone call. I’m still a bit curious as to why her things are still in boxes, but I’ll say that it’s because her will to live is so minimal that she doesn’t require many necessities besides food on the table. As a spirit warrior with cursed blood, she has felt alone all of her life, so I’ll say this as a hypothesis.
