Starting things off with a random side note: I recognize these as Chinese characters and know that the typical Romanization is “Xin Jing”, so I looked it up. Apparently Hsin King is actually the city of Changchun, but it was renamed to Hsin King when the Japanese took over…fun history fact?
I guess this week’s episode is the Kabaneri crossover episode?
This kid asks what the reading kid is reading even though he can clearly see the title of the book and the reading kid responds with just the title of the book…
“Wash Room” appears at the top right here even though the sign says “Drawing Room”.
It then disappears and reappears again as “Wash Room” for this second set of characters where the sign actually says “Wash Room”. Come on, man…get it together. If the show does the translation for you, you could at least get the subtitle right.
Noooooo! Not that guy!
So he’s up against a group of anti-spies that somehow got the information he was trying to get from the informant? Sounds like a decent setup for an episode.
Ho ho magic!
Stuff about trains…I feel like there’s a clue in this information that will be used later in the episode, but I’m too lazy to pay attention to it.
Using bored and curious kids to find the culprit? I like this guy already.
The people on the train aren’t immediately suspicious of the guy with the hat and the trench coat? I guess they need to watch more movies…
Why does this guy immediately reach for the card after the kids left the train car? Does he notice the card from the beginning and just wait for them to leave before he inspects it? Or did he coincidentally put down his newspaper after they left?
This is actually really cool. He had the kids drop the card by the guy with the newspaper (not sure if it was the conductor in disguise or the accomplice) because he realized it would make the conductor drop his guard. Why would he suspect the conductor if he had used the kids to scout a passenger as the culprit?
The culprit! I suppose this makes sense, since it was a bit random for her to be part of the intel on the victim.
Whoa…he’s been holding on to a live pigeon this whole time? That seems a bit unlikely, don’t you think?
Hmm…another decent episode, I’d say. I liked this spy. Keep it coming?
