That’s right, this student made movie looks terrible…
As you would expect, not much happens except Eru accepting Fuyumi’s offer of reviewing a movie. However, the so-called mystery movie that the students made is just terrible in terms of its execution that screams amateur. No wonder everyone seemed uninterested, especially Mayaka who slept through the whole thing. I suppose Sturgeon’s Law was in full force, thus this movie is a piece of crud.
If I would them, I would have some more effort into it such as writing the whole script and complete the mystery before filming it. This is not a Let’s Play where you can say anything during your video game recording and then cut it out in Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro X. Not only that, why are they working on a mystery movie when the production team have zero experience in that genre? Sure you can do research, but it will always turn out bad since the writers lack experience. Of course, since the ending never got completed, that is wishful thinking.
Lastly, one of the things that interested me is that the last episode indicated what would happen in this arc. The writers apparently used the ghost story in Room Seven to introduce the theme of ghosts that got incorporated in the movie (a ghost town), which I found interesting. Aside from that, it seems like Eru still has a tight leash on Oreki and apparently, she wants to help out with solving the mystery in the movie. From that, the Classic Literature Club has to get their creative juices going while Oreki cries in despair with his energy reserves getting depleted thanks to her. ¶
