‘Given’ Anime Episode 9: Mafuyu did it, and I’m crying!

OVER A YEAR of inactivity and I’m back posting something about a single episode I just finished watching minutes ago – Given Episode 9.

If you’re reading this post, then I guess it’s safe to assume that you have somehow watched at least the initial parts of this series, so I won’t bore you with the synopsis.

We’ve seen this episode coming. Admit it. At some point we wished for Mafuyu to actually go all out singing a full song apart from the gentle humming and ‘la-la-la’ moments.

I personally wanted to hear his voice since episode 2. (His humming did this!)

Spoiler: He finally did it in episode 9!!!

And I’m blown away. Completely, utterly rendered immobile in the full duration of the song. I was probably gaping at my phone screen.

THE SONG was so good! The LYRICS a standalone story on its own, and HIS VOICE…my goodness I felt that.

It was so beautiful but equally devastating in a sense. And it doesn’t help that the flashback clips interjected in between actually gave the answers we needed about Mafuyu and Yuki’s past.

I AM HEARTBROKEN.

Just how could they drop that in less than 4 minutes?! Brutal!

But beautiful nonetheless!

If you are expecting that familiar sweet, gentle, fuzzy feeling from MafuYama interactions in this episode, then no. This is not it.

Episode 9 is pure, raw EXPLOSION.

And my heart’s barely keeping up.
