The more Teru dominates the table in recent Saki episodes, the more does Toki act like a main character, pushing the Achiga representative Kuro ever deeper into the shadows… Which reminds me of a different sickly (up to a point), time-manipulating girl who went to steal the spotlight of her own series late into the show.
If you guessed Homura from Madoka Magica, you guessed it right (if you guessed something else, share in the comments). And if you remember, the coup de grace of Homura’s takeover was the reveal that the opening theme of the show was written from her perspective to begin with, only pretending to be a song about Madoka’s worries.
But Toki wouldn’t do something like this. Or would she?
(Towards the promised place, over the future)
Within the accelerating future
A miracle takes form
If I am holding your hand
How could I ever give up?
In my palm,
The countless wounds
From our battles
Come, let us go, the road awaits
Add one more move to the memories the world gave us
The overflowing sound becomes a rhythm and sets dreams abloom
I will fill the field with my song, a futuristic player
Our feelings overlap and reach towards the next smile
And, yes, a certain victory
Our intertwined fingers will give us strength
One day we’ll reach it, over the future
