The mystery anime has many intense moments in every episode we have seen. Before speculating twists and turns of Tomodachi Game Episode 5, I will summarize the events so far. The last episode revealed the culprit behind the badmouthing Shihou, Tenji. Beneath the calm and comforting exterior of Tenji, there is a sadistic and exploitative character. Tenji wants to cut Shiho from all her friends and make her depend on him. He furthers up his agenda by creating strain between Shiho and Yutori. Yutori is innocent in this to an extent? But the way she uses her weakness to curry favor of Yuichi and try to separate him from Shihou is ostensible.
Tenji, on the other hand, used every twist and reveal to his advantage and isolated Shiho from everyone else. But a surprise came to him in mid when Shiho was given a unique chance to reveal the secret of any one of the participants. Tenji gets into a panic; all the trust he has built is against him, landing him in hot waters. He is the one who stole the money and the reason they are playing Tomodachi Game. His fears are unfound as Shibe volunteers to be the one to be selected for scrutiny, claiming he has nothing to hide. That is when Shibe learns his family’s dark secret.
Tomodachi Game Episode 5
Things are heating up for Tomodachi Game Episode 5. Tenji has meticulously severed Shiho’s relations and even fractured Shibe’s standing among his friends. That is to be expected; he is a veteran, has a grudge against his childhood friend, and has a massive pile of debt to pay. Not only that, he made sure to oust his secret, only to drive Shiho into the corner even more. But he has been apprehensive about Yuichi since the beginning. Those fears came to light when the last spill came into light about Shibe. Someone suggested he had killed a person before. Tenji is shocked beyond surprise. First, he couldn’t believe he was doing something like that; second, he didn’t think he was capable of it. The second surprise is clarified when he sees Yuichi smiling, engulfed in black fog (in a symbolic) sense to show his true colors.
One of the gods watching over isn’t surprised by his actions. She even breaks the fourth wall to say only the gullible won’t notice what he has been up to. He was after the traitor all along.
