Since we’re at the tea party, allow me to ramble (and I shall ramble indeed!) on something completely different. This WILL contain some manga ep8 spoilers (well, only one thing really), so anyone who wants to avoid this might wanna sit this post out. I won’t use spoiler tags because I warn you now, mostly because the spoiler tag would make it obvious anyway what I am talking about.
Let’s talk about the Chiesta sisters for a bit. We’ve got three, and a fourth that’s dead. The Chiesta are portrayed as bunnies and a symbol for the old shitty guns Kinzo had. Alright, let’s think back to EP4, Rosa destroyed one of the bunny figurines that Maria had, didn’t she? So that would be the dead bunny.
One of the guns has got it bad, the one Rosa initially had in the EP7 TP (oh karma!), and that Rudolf took from her (checked this just to be sure, he picks it up while he and Kyrie are discussing on what to do next). Following that, Rudolf failed to finish off George in one shot, and failed to kill Eva. Alright, I can accept that, the bad gun. Or nearly, see the end.
Kyrie however. She kills Rosa, kills Hideyoshi, then fails to kill Eva (twice even!), Yasu and Jessica (at least with the gun… shooting that is). Yasu especially is described as if a doll with its strings cut, so is unmoving. How the hell can Kyrie be such a bad shot? Are all the guns bad? Kyrie managed to kill Hideyoshi, Eva managed to hit Rudolf and Kyrie. Natsuhi and Krauss don’t count, it happened in a scuffle, even if the guns are bad it would hit. Probably the same for Gohda, Kyrie uses knives for the guest house (at least its implied).
… either Kyrie is a really bad shot. Or this really is weird. Are all the guns bad now or not? Sometimes they hit, sometimes not .Are we supposed to look with love at Kyrie, was the taking the fall (predicting that Eva would otherwise murder instead)? … after she kills nearly everyone? Just so Eva won’t do it? The only hint for that could be the thing she tried to say something after being shot. .
Eva - talks about rewriting the cat box, with Kyrie being worried about Ange
"When Kyrie heard this, blood dripped from her grinning mouth, and she seemed to say something in response. However, her voice came out only as globs of blood from the hole in her throat, not words."
Also, Rudolf ejected a test shot in the golden room. How did he not notice that the gun has “got it bad” if he knows so much about them?
Those guns and those culprits confound me.
edit: Kyrie literally says “How could I have missed you from that distance?” to Eva at their second meeting. I don’t understand either, Kyrie.
edit Slight edit to Kyrie vs. Eva 2, although it doesn’t change much. just to be precise. Sadly had to remove calling Ange to pipe it down during the movie. Many tears were shed.
