This week’s episode starts off by showing us what we were told about last week, Kyohei opening Kukuri’s left hand and shooting the mystery kakashi. After reminiscing a bit, Mahiru tells Aki that she will topple the village rules so that she can be with Kyohei, but Aki tells her about Hibino. Meanwhile, Kyohei’s group and Koshiro are wondering why Mahiru is in the city. The next day, Moyako and Hibino go out shopping. However, when Moyako goes off to the bathroom, Hibino is kidnapped by Mahiru. Mahiru questions Hibino a bit before leaving to go talk with Kyohei. However, she crushes the box of cookies that Utao made for Kirio, which angers Utao into attacking her. Mahiru shrugs off the attack easily, though, and asks Kyohei to return to the village with her. Kyohei refuses, and Mahiru leaves in anger before anyone can stop her. Kyohei sets off with Utao to find out where Mahiru has gone, and gets a call from Kuuko with Hibino’s location. The episode ends with them setting off on Kukuri with Moyako and a man from an earlier episode starting to move in on Hibino (I assume he’s trying to rape her). This episode was kind of iffy…not sure if I liked it as much as the others in this series (maybe because there was no big reveal). However, still a couple more until the end, so I’m looking forward to them.
