Actually, since they retain their memories, they're also immortal. Even IF someone dies in a loop, they shall be reincarnated to Square 1. And, there are some fun things one can do in this situation.
acquire infinite amounts of knowledge, you've got an eternity to study. might be able to create a time machine or something in time. Challenge the Forces!
or just stalk someone and memorize their 6-month lives then freak them out in the next loops.
borrow one heck of an amount of money, then go on an around-the-world journey. one country per loop if you want to. Don't worry about paying it all back, you don't have to.
But it would sure suck when on the supposed night of restarting:
"Hanako, you know the drill, hold tight as long as you can..."
She nods and buries her head into my chest. I never do get tired of embracing her. I hold my love in my arms firmly, waiting for those unexplainable forces to try to pull us apart for the nth time.
I take a peek. I open both my eyes. After all that's happened in our being here, and that's a lot, I can't believe THIS.
"OH GO~ why are we still here? time isn't restarting! This... This n-never happened before!" I break my embrace and lift her head to face me.
"Hanako! Ahh, Hanako this is wonderful!" I can tell from her wide eyes and her looking around our hotel room, she's dumbstruck by what's happening. I put my arms around her and spin her in my joy.
"Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!"
"Hisao! Wait I.."
I set her down the bed and say, "We're alive Hanako! I mean, we can find out what's happening next in our lives!" I go to out into the veranda and shout into the air, "YOU THERE! WHOEVER YOU ARE, I THANK YOU AND FORGIVE YOU! Hahaha!"
Still laughing from my little sarcasm and mockery of whoever or whatever gods were responsible, I enter our room again and step on something. It's my wallet. Then I realize something else.
"Oh fu~ shit. We're... Hanako, pack your bags, we're going to hide from our creditors.."
