Episode 6 of Wonder Egg Priority was released today, marking the end of the first half of Season 1. This episode was sinister, emotional, and whimsical all at once; it looks like we're getting both closer to and further from learning what really happened to Koito, while Ai must navigate a new family situation on top of her trauma. Here is all you need to know before Episode 7 is released next week:
Wonder Egg Priority Overview and Episode 6 Recap
Wonder Egg Priority is an original show, written by Shinji Nojima, animated by Studio CloverWorks, and co-produced by Aniplex, NTV, and D.N. Dream Partners.
The anime follows Ai Ooto, who becomes unable to leave the house after the suicide of her best friend, Koito. But in her dream world, she becomes a magical girl saving people who have committed suicide and setting them free. For each person she frees, she comes closer to saving Koito... but at what cost?
The anime has been commented for its amazing style, the general sensitivity with which it tackles traumatic topics, and the opening theme song, which is performed by the four main characters' voice actors.
Episode 6 felt very much like the middle episode of the first season: the girls were rewarded with a 'level-up': each was given a pendant from which to hatch a cute reptile pet to help them in their mission. But Ai could not focus only on saving others this time.
As we've seen in previous episodes, Ai was often visited by her teacher, who appeared concerned about her absence from school. Her feelings towards him are complicated, as he seems to know something about Koito's death - but what? Episode 6 revealed that Ai's mother and Mr. Sawaki started dating, forcing Ai to face both her suspicions and her possible crush towards her teacher.
Wonder Egg Priority is becoming increasingly twisted. Hopefully, episode 7 will provide some answers.
