Wonder Egg Priority Episode 7 VERIFIED
Content warning for the discussion of self-harm and suicide ideation in this episode. This isn't anything new for Wonder Egg Priority, but considering the graphic nature of this episode in particular, I wanted to preface it here.
Wonder Egg Priority Episode 7
Rika's most superficial relationship is also the one she's the most fixated on: her dad. She's already quoted him in past episodes, and this week she reveals that his voice is actually her only memory of him. Because Rika is fundamentally unhappy with her life, her dad becomes a convenient target to project all of her dreams of a better life onto. She's also not an idiot, so she probably recognizes that this is what she's doing. She knows all too well how terrible people can be, and I'm sure she's imagined some very good reasons for why her dad abandoned her and why her mom won't help her find him. But she still needs hope, and that hope both sustains her and tears her apart.
Every week, I watch Wonder Egg Priority tackle a wall thick enough to stop even the most stone-muscled linebacker, and each week I watch it pulverize its way through to the next obstacle, with nary a crack in its shell. This was a fantastic enough episode to be my favorite, just like all of the previous episodes. This one in particular is exceptional in its mundanity, with long stretches of dialogue focused just on Rika's psyche and home life, and with hardly any new developments towards the overarching plot. I love that! Maybe it will backfire when it comes time for the series to conclude, but I appreciate WEP's willingness to devote so much of its limited time to character development and nothing else. Rika's journey is compelling, devastating, inspiring, and still in progress, and I hope it speaks to the people who need it the most.
