  1. I say that I agree with Doc.
    I sure desired to see specifics about Moriko’s past, but being vague about it is not entirely a bad thing.
    Being specific doesn’t prevent the audience to empathize with the character and being motivated by her, but by being vague about the causes of her traumas it forces the audience to search it’s own bad experiences that caused similar effects. The problem that remains in this case is that we don’t really see neither Moriko or Sakurai deciding to do something about their struggles, they only got together by Koiwai insistence and as we’ll see in the next episode Moriko “just accepts” the way she is now because Sakurai accepts her, no word about trying to improve. They both can still try in the future but not seeing this is rather unsatisfactory.
    Still, runner up among the best anime this year.
