Kyousuke deceives everyone and shows that he is evil.
When I watched this episode, it felt very depressing for the fact that Rin is alone and suffering. It seemed like Kyousuke is grinning literally because he is basically destroying Little Busters. I just don’t get his logic of him taking away Rin’s friends and isolating her just to make her mature. She is still a teenager, thus she needs people to support her for the fact that she has a timid personality. You can’t simply make her get over it in an instant. Even with his so-called compromise, it wouldn’t fix any of the issues Rin is facing.
On the other hand, it feels like Kyousuke is trying to make everyone’s life miserable because he is dying in real life. Therefore, he has to create a world of his own and rig everything in his favor to make everyone’s life miserable. We have seen it with Kyousuke throwing some kind of image in Kengo’s head to mess him up and ensure a win rigged in his favor. One can argue that the baseball game was there to destroy what’s left of Little Busters. Whatever his intentions might be, one thing is clear: I can never view Masato in the same way ever again. Then again, he might redeem himself in the next loop.
At the end of the day, it makes me wonder why Riki and Rin didn’t run away in the first place? If they done so, Rin wouldn’t have to suffer as much. Then again, I doubt it would last that long for the fact that the police found them in the end (it’s probably another cheap trick from Kyousuke). Perhaps In the next episode, I think Kyousuke will finally concede defeat and tell the truth before the second loop considering that his plan failed to force Rin to grow up. ¶
