Suou arrives to find Shion collapsed because he paid an appropriate remuneration, an observation spirit finds them and floats away, while Yin/Izanami continues to hum her sinister tune as spirits float around her.
The bodies of multiple contractors litter the ground within the gate as Yin walks forth humming a tune, the orange cresent moon can clearly be seen in the sky as multiple observer spirits move around her.
The episode starts with Misaki being told BK-201’s location with Section 3’s doll system shown. It then picks up where it left off last week with Suou’s mother freaking out from the possibility of Suou being there when she had died eight years ago, Suou brings up her memory of the visit to the aquarium but her mother doesn’t remember it. Both her and July jump out of the car and run off leaving Mao in the car as it drives off.
Misaki hears a message from Amber and Suou, Mao, and July continue to travel through Tokyo, despite Suou’s cold getting worse. When Kiko and one of her friends get on the same train that they’re traveling on they notice how similar Suou looks to one of the characters from a series that they’re fans of.
I believe that that guy is reading Shonen Gangan, the cover even has Soul Eater on it…
The episode starts with a scene from Suou’s past where she is in a competition with Nika as to who can hold their breath longer underwater. When Sasha declared her the winner instead of Nika they started splashing eachother. It then quickly changes to Misaki swimming lengths and meeting Madame Orielle when she gets out of the pool. They talk about the Mitaka documents briefly and due to her she was able to get some new information.
Misaki always looks good in a swimsuit.
The FSB go over the information about Suou’s house, the extent that her father went to hide Shion and that the memories that they extracted from his corpse were insufficient, an agent arrives with a photograph that proves that Dr Pavilchenko is still alive and has been sighted in Tokyo.
The second backstage pass is up this time Mao’s VA, Ikuya Sawaki joins Hidenobu Kiuchi and Kana Hanazawa who voice Hei and Suou respectively.
This should fill in the gaps between the first and second seasons, and looks sure to be four episodes of Hei being badass and Hei and Yin shipping material. The Amber lookalike is kind of surprising as well so I wonder how that will work out.
The episodes will be distributed via the even numbered DVD/Blu-ray volumes.
