The Calm is upon us. Apparently it actually is a big deal as the youmu get weaker. Although, Akihito seems to be transforming back into his youmu form which should have been weakened for some reason. Ayaka makes a comment about his human form becoming weakened. Could that be from the Calm or is it something else? Because it makes little sense that the Calm would weaken his human half, right?
So should we be treating Izumi as an ally or an enemy? She seems to be fighting off Miroku and protecting Ayaka, so ally seems like a good assumption. But what if it’s part a larger plot? Whatever shall we do? Anyway, next week, I assume there will be more protecting of Akihito and whatnot. Must be pretty severe if there’s a line like “I wish I’d never met him” in the preview. Will he turn again?
