So, anyone who wasn’t paying attention last week, the last episode ended with Inori transferring into Shu’s class. Naturally, this causes quite the freak-out in the class, since she’s a famous singer and everything. Shu resolves not to become involved with Inori, but she appears at his house right on cue. Guess who has a new roommate?
Meanwhile, the Anti Bodies send someone named Segai in response to the incident in the last episode. Inori explains that she has come to protect Shu, but they are interrupted by the arrival of Shu’s classmate, Samukawa Yahiro. However, Inori takes Shu to meet with Gai before the situation can be explained.
Gai explains to Shu that someone from his school saw what happened in the last episode, and Shu is ordered to find that person. Gai tells Shu that he will be able to draw out this person’s Void, which will make it easier to find him. Shu then realizes that Gai is able to see Voids.
Shu attempts to draw the Void from a student, but it just ends up with him groping a girl (lol). After talking with Inori again, Shu manages to get the hang of it, avoiding further embarrassment. Shu eventually realizes that Yahiro is the mole, and confronts him with the information.
Naturally, Shu attempts to reason with Yahiro, but Yahiro refuses to hear it. Shu draws his Void, and Inori attempts to shoot Yahiro. However, Shu stops her. When Yahiro wakes up, he and Shu agree to keep the other’s secret. However, the episode ends with Yahiro betraying Shu and pushing him out in front of the GHQ and Segai, also separating him from Inori.
So it was definitely interesting that it makes more sense now how Shu’s power works. Basically, this means that he doesn’t have to constantly rely on Inori for a weapon like I originally thought, as he can draw Voids from anyone. However, I do have a bone to pick with the Void powers, specifically the rules. He has to have eye contact and the process causes the target to lose their memory of it? Come on…that’s just becoming way too similar to Code Geass. Oh well, that aside, it was a very interesting episode, especially with Inori’s more soft-spoken personality. Very different from C.C. (who’s more of a troll). Also, I’m starting to notice that the background music for this show sounds really good. Looking forward to more next week, especially what’s happening with this betrayal.
