Tomodachi Game Episode 6 Recap
The 6th Episode of Tomodachi Game, named “I Really Can’t Be Friends with a ‘Murderer,” focuses on the main character Yuuichi Katagiri and the aftermath of his plans to find out who the real traitor is. It opens with them all on the rooftop, talking about the way and lengths Yuuichi went through to find out who the traitor was. He states that by slowly testing one by one of the five, he concludes the process of elimination. His plan was so meticulous that Yuuichi proved he was indeed the most dangerous character out of the five. Finally, Yuuichi reveals that all the events that have happened in Episode 5 were calculated by him beforehand.
Tenji, the accused traitor, is left dumbfounded. Interestingly enough, Yuuichi also states that Tenji betrayed them for two possible reasons, money or something else. Yuuichi believes that the reason behind his betrayal leans more toward the latter. However, Tenji states that his process of elimination wouldn’t have worked because of the rules of the game. This is when his last trap is revealed. He consensually took the name tags of the four, thus proving their innocence. Moreover, Yuuichi claimed that he knows his friends thoroughly. Since Tenji was not acting like his usual self, Yuuichi began to suspect him even more.
When it was time to continue the game, Yuuichi whispers something in Manabu Kun’s ear, which causes the latter to end the game, claiming that only Yuuichi will move to the next round. Yuuichi then reveals his dark past, claiming that he has killed people before. Stating this, he also claimed that mixing around with his friends was an escape for him to keep clean from his past, and now that he will be playing the third game alone, he can let himself free and take down the management. However, this news was not received well by his friends, causing Shibe and Tenji to physically fight and Yutori to have a mental breakdown.
Yuuichi made up his mind that it was best to leave his friends behind but was stopped by Tenji. This event introduced us to another interesting secret. Tenji states that he needs to go to the next round because he lied about having feelings for Shiho when they dated. He also said that the reason he caused their bonds to weaken was that he wanted to keep a person from the group all to himself. This person was Yuuichi, the one he truly liked. To prove his point, he goes ahead and kisses Yuuichi causing them to fall towards the third game. Is what Tenji confessed real or just a part of another plan? We will only know the answers to these questions in Tomodachi Game Episode 7.
Tomodachi Game Episode 7 Release Date
