I don’t know about you guys, but this is the episode I’ve been waiting for. Finally, that guy…I don’t even know his name…the president or whatever of the Japan POG is sent away by Rook. But that happens at the end of the episode. The rest of the episode is basically Round 2 against Elena, who has invited everyone onto the set of her TV show, Puzzle Queen Elena.
Elena creates another Sage Puzzle that involves Kaito’s friends, and the president of the POG once again distorts the puzzle to threaten their lives. It’s an interesting puzzle with multiple solutions, but Kaito takes charge to solve it.
Next week looks like the first time Rook will reveal himself to Kaito, who knows him from his past. I’m guessing he’ll be introduced as an old friend, with no suspicions of his connection with the POG. Elena looks like she’ll be a recurring character, which is nice. It was pretty obvious because she always got flustered whenever anyone was about to get hurt. At the moment, this show doesn’t really have much of a direction. We know there’s a Kami no Puzzle that has to get solved, but we don’t really know about what it is and what has to happen first. I’m hoping this series doesn’t stay so episodic.
