This episode starts with Nezumi asking Inukashi to help him get information on the correctional facility in No. 6. Inukashi initially refuses, but Nezumi begs him to help him, and he finally agrees. We then switch over to Karan inside No. 6, who discovers that Safu’s records have been purged. She starts to talk with an old lady in a park, but is saved by Youming before she reveals too much to the lady, who was actually a spy. Youming then takes her back to her shop, revealing that he has been investigating No. 6 due to his own suspicions (I figured that guy would end up being important). Back in the Western District, Shion is still trying to find a cure for the bee syndrome, but is not having luck finding the necessary tools. Rikiga is touched by his kindness for some reason and decides to buy him some new clothes. At the clothing shop, Shion finds a jacket that he recognizes as Safu’s (dun dun duuuun). Meanwhile, Safu awakes in a testing chamber and overhears some scientists referring to her as a “perfect sample” for their project. Inukashi approaches Nezumi, telling him about the jacket that Shion found. Inukashi reveals that it was actually him that smuggled the jacket from the correctional facility and he concludes that Nezumi is trying to save Safu. He warns Nezumi that Shion will be going after Safu himself, but Nezumi just tells him to keep doing his job. That night, Nezumi talks a bit with Shion and both hide what they truly know from each other. Nezumi finds Shion heading towards No. 6 and proceeds to punch him for his foolishness. He tells Shion about Safu and that he made the preparations to go save her, but Shion punches him back for hiding it from him, saying he wishes to be Nezumi’s equal. This shocks Nezumi, and he finally tells Shion what he means to him (…). The episode ends with Nezumi telling Shion that he has something to show him.
This episode…urgh…I dunno if I can keep watching this show. What do you guys think? Worth my time?
