FALSE ALARM, PEOPLE! AYAKA IS NOT DEAD. I apologize for any confusion. Although it turns out that she did leap off the roof of her own free will, she is hospitalized and unconscious with low chance of recovery (which usually means she’ll recover in anime). Everyone is noticeably shaken with what happened (even I’m shaken) until Narumi finally returns to the ramen shop, asking Tetsu to teach him how to fight properly. Narumi then asks Alice to help him, with her once again warning him about the burden of this knowledge. Alice tells him that she knows why she would want to kill herself, but doesn’t know why she chose the school roof, which was too low to ensure death. Just like Narumi, Alice blames herself for not stopping Ayaka, but Narumi is able to comfort her. She then officially makes Narumi her assistant for this case. The next day, Alice orders Narumi to go to the greenhouse, where the Fourth is waiting. Narumi finds out from a teacher that Ayaka was growing some rare flowers in the greenhouse, but there were none there when he was in the greenhouse. Narumi realizes that they may have something to do with Angel Fix and rushes to Alice to check. However, Alice first shows him a picture of Hakamizaka Shirou, who Narumi recognizes as the person who was talking with Toshi last episode. She concludes that he is the man who created Angel Fix, having mutated a flower that he found while studying abroad to create it. Toshi was one of Hakamizaka’s distributors, using Ayaka to grow the raw ingredients. The Fourth mobilizes everyone under him to create a giant search party for those responsible for Angel Fix. Narumi later tells the other NEETs his theory that Ayaka overheard what they were talking about before and realized that she had been helping grow narcotics. He believes that it is possible that Ayaka spoke to Toshi that night, so he resolves to find out, sending the NEETs out to find him. That night, Narumi receives a call from Toshi from Ayaka’s phone, confirming his theory that they met. Toshi sounds crazed, but he tries to arrange a meeting with Narumi. Then, he suddenly starts to regret what has happened, begging Narumi to help him before Hakamizaka beats him up. Hakamizaka then issues a challenge to Alice as the episode ends. This show is really getting good. Too bad it ends next episode (I think). Oh well, it should be good…so much drama.
