WHERE DID THIS COME FROM?!
This is the definition of going from 0 to 100. @_@ All of a sudden Kayano is the cute one in the corner always hanging out with Nagisa, and then…that happens. To be honest it came out of left field but I should have seen this coming! She has green hair for shit’s sake, that means something in anime! That’s protagonist hair. But I didn’t think about it too much because she was always quiet and never really stood out much like the others, so I never thought that Kayano was anything more than just one of the girls. But then all of a sudden tentacles come out of the back of her neck and shit runs wild.
So Kayano Kaede isn’t her name. She reveals herself to be Akari Yukimura, the younger sister of Aguri Yukimura, after she attempted to kill Koro-sensei. This is the name of the woman we kept seeing from Koro-sensei’s mini flashbacks. She calls him a murderer and she swears she’s going to kill him next time, and she’ll be fair and give him the time and place, and she leaves. We suddenly get thrown into this Akari girl’s life. She’s actually an actress, and she purposely enrolled herself into the E-Class to face Koro-sensei. Before this, she had been walking to where her sister was, but then the building collapsed. Akari was able to get in because she’s small, and for a slight moment she was able to see Koro-sensei escape, with blood on his tentacles. Then she saw before her the dead body of her older sister. Aguri, even for only two weeks, was actually the homeroom teacher of the E-Class, and hearing from the students she was sweet, passionate, and just a wonderful person. Beside her sister’s dead body, there was a note from Koro-sensei saying that he would take over as the teacher of the E-Class. Probably a promise he made to Aguri for some reason.
Akari was devastated and swore revenge against him, and so she reached out and took one of the vials that lay before her sister’s corpse. A liquid that had the cells to implant into humans that would make the tentacles. She decided what she would do. So taking her skills as an actress, she played the part of a meek and frail transfer student who was easily able to fit in with everyone. She dyed her hair, tied it up, and gave herself the name Kayano Kaede, the name of a character from a TV movie she played. She injected herself with the tentacle cells, and like we saw with Itona, she was going through excruciating pain, but her mental state filled with hatred and revenge was stronger and she was able to keep her act. She always stuck with Nagisa because her murderous intent was always masked by his.
And now she found the time to kill Koro-sensei, and it looked like she was working with Shiro behind everyone’s backs. But she’s decided she’ll kill him her own way, even if it means her own life being lost. And in the end of the episode, we are thrown into this amazing fight. Akari’s body is burning, so much that she makes her tentacles make flames. But Itona knows that the way she’s fighting, she’s going to die soon.
What in the world! I seriously didn’t expect any of this, but I’m so glad that we’re finally delving into Koro-sensei’s backstory! Which is what I’ve wanted since…the beginning. Akari played her part well because I didn’t suspect a thing, as well as none of the other kids. And I feel bad for Nagisa because he looks the most hurt of all the students, as he considered “Kayano” to be one of his closest friends. But was it really all an act? I know Koro-sensei didn’t kill Aguri, it’s probably going to be something cliche like something went wrong with this bio weapon they were producing that ended up killing her. So I’m just wondering if Akari/Kayano will be saved. We haven’t really gotten deaths in this show, so she most likely will.
