No. 6 Episode 5

Let’s get right into the action. This episode starts with a super hypocrite girl getting owned by the bees. We switch over to Shion’s love interest, Safu, who seems to be leading a fairly normal life at her new school (or whatever her rendition of normal is). Meanwhile, Shion is reading to a couple of random kids. Nezumi leaves to do whatever it is he does, and Shion asks to join him, but Nezumi refuses to take him, knowing that Shion will distract him. Later, Shion is talking about this with Inukashi when Rikiga, the informant from the last episode, shows up. He starts to try to insult Inukashi, but one of Nezumi’s rats shows up and scares the crap out of him (but they’re so cute…). All of the comedy aside, Rikiga asks Inukashi about strange incidents in No. 6 with people aging and dying (sound familiar?). Inukashi asks Shion to tell them everything he knows about the bees and he obliges. After explaining about his condition, Shion realizes that he needs to let Nezumi know and rushes off to find him at a play, having taken a female role (no wonder they call him Eve). Nezumi notices Shion, but continues to act. However, he and Safu (who is still in a completely different place), simultaneously pass out for some reason. Shion starts to have a strange vision and freaks out, calling out for Shion, who pulls him out and wakes him up. Shion then tests his mental state with some hilariously easy math questions. As Shion asks Nezumi what happened, Nezumi gives an identical answer to Safu, who is explaining the same thing to a nurse. Safu reveals that she has become aware of Nezumi’s existence somehow, as her mother walks into tell her that they are returning to No. 6 because her grandmother is dead. After hearing about the bee activity in No. 6, Nezumi is delighted and pulls Shion aside to dance (O.o). Afterwards, Shion says some pretty weird stuff to Nezumi about being afraid to lose him, which confuses Nezumi quite a lot (quite understandably). This episode was pretty good. The yaoi undertones are starting to make me a little wary, but I liked the cuts between Shion/Nezumi and Safu in No. 5. It would be pretty depressing for Safu to lost to Nezumi after her awesome pickup line, but meh..we’ll see what happens.
