Tegami Bachi Reverse Episode #29 - Review

Lugh - who bears a remarkable resemblance to Lag - works together with an old man (he calls him Grandpa, but there doesn't appear to be a blood relationship between them) in an imagery lighthouse in one of Amberground's more remote regions. Recently, though, Lugh's been hearing voices around the lighthouse, calling his name and warning him to "get away from here", and he has no idea where the voices could be coming for. Passing by while on a delivery, Jiggy Pepper realises that a Gaichuu has nested on top of the lighthouse, but when he uses his Shindanjuu to destroy it, it unleashes an unexpected chain of events...No prizes for guessing that Lugh turns out to be Lag, although it has to be said that the story is told in a rather arse-about-face way - the opening half of the episode shows us the outcome of the story, before the second half rewinds to tell us what happened in the first place to leave Lag working in a lighthouse (quite what an "imagery lighthouse" is, as distinct from the sort of lighthouse you'd find on Earth, is never explained, but it's a long way from any ocean). It's a strange way of telling a story, but it works surprisingly well, as it gets you to engage the old grey cells a little to figure it out yourself, and the clues are there to allow you to do it, if you're so inclined.
