Wow. Looking good. Really looking forward to this episode!

Info from Sankaku (NSFW).

I hope Hei didn't kill Kyouko. Why did Madame do it? Was it Madame? Or Shion? The two scenes with Kyouko were excellently horrifying.

Was the chrysalis Yin or Shion or Shion/Yin?

Looks as if it is possible to implant false memories?

I love the idea that there is no fake. I've always believed clones are human beings.

Poor Misaki. I was happy with how well she treated Suou and July. I'm not 100% sure whether Suou would be better off with her or with Hei.

Zwei 2009-12-10 13:59

Umm,

Spoiler for quick summary:


Hopefully, I'll get a better understanding of this episode after subs are out. :rolleyes:

ME technology has been in use ever since the appearance of the Gates.

Banking on Shion. He's been a sadist since he was a child and he has a thing for particularly violent deaths.

This is disgusting! Hei and 12 year old Suou over Misaki? WTF are they thinking and where are they taking this?

Rima-Chan 2009-12-10 14:48

OmG! From what i've read here, it seams like this is awsome episode! Can wait for subtitles to come out!! :hyper-^v^:

I think it is a mistake to think of this as a romance. It might become one, but for now it is parental-type protection.

On Suou's side, it might be puppy love, but the fact is that Hei is the only security she has left, now that she discovers that her father, brother, and mother -- and herself -- are not what she thought they were.

To Hei, Suou is like a glimmer of hope, a spark of humanity. The kind of thing a child provides.

I was surprised by his apparent willingness to shoot Misaki, but he is, after all, the Black Reaper. I have been hoping for Misaki, but perhaps he could only pair up with another similarly damaged soul, like Yin.

The weight of coincidence in this episode is fairly massive. Misaki just happens on Suou and July. Mao just happened to touch Asami's hand and turn her baby into a contractor (I think), and just happened to be there when the explosion went up that killed both him and Suou. Or is any of this coincidence?

Not romance, bro. Remember, Misaki pulled the gun on Hei and never answered his question as to why she's working for Section 3. And this is after Hei traveled around the city after Oreille basically hinted that Section 3 wanted to take custody of Suou as of now, who coincidentally was with Section 3 member Misaki.

>Mao just happened to touch Asami's hand and turn her baby into a contractor (I think)
I don't think that's how it works.

serenade_beta 2009-12-10 15:20

Augh... For some reason, finding my interest towards this show slipping by the second... Still will watch it though.

The whole revelation about Suou by her mother was pretty interesting, and Mao's fetish and excellent memory of the ankle was entertaining.
.......
Yeah.

I think there was some wonderful moments of Suou going deredere over Hei (I know, keikau doori, you lolicon) near the end, but I don't remember a thing.

Now then... A few episodes left... How will they end everything...................
*looks around*

James Lame 2009-12-10 15:49

Wow from what I've read/reading this episode sounds like it will be awesome and possibly a bit sad. Can't wait for the subs.

qwertyman 2009-12-10 18:35

That ep was a rollercoaster of emotion for me. I really don't know what to say about it.

Spoiler for ep 10:

Then you can complain to the people in real life who get married happily with 10-year+ age differences. :p

Haven't seen the episode for myself yet, so no comments until later.

^ THIS!
No other pairing is acceptable!! Yin or bust for Hei l say!!

Lummie 2009-12-10 19:59

Hei has the full right to be hostile towards Misaki because she has teamed up with section 3 who's been hunting him and aiming at his life right from the start. I wouldn't trust her either i were to be in Hei's place.

My suspicions about Oreille still having contact with Hei were right. I think Oreille killed Youko because she views her as a future danger because A: she's a apprentice of Dr. Schroeder and B: she currently knows too much. With her death, Section 3 loses a important card but that's what i think.

I think the most gross moment in this episode was Hazuki kissing Youko's lips while holding her dead body....ew

I wouldn't side with this to be honest. If Bones had wanted us to not be so sure about it, they wouldn't have Mao bluntly stating that Suou is in love with him. I guess Bones learned from not making Hei and Yin's relationship clear in S1. :heh:

Another nice development episode. I can't help feeling that Suou's mother is evenutally going to come around and see Suou for "who she is." She seemed torn up enough about her when she heard Mao calling out to Suou when Suou ran off after hearing her mother spill her guts.

I liked the scene where Suou spilled her own guts to Hei like that. It was a great balance of just enough emotional power to make you feel, while not making you cry like a little girl for her. :heh:

Yeah, that was definitely not Hei who killed Yoko; a) she was still alive when he left, and b) that so doesn't fit his M.O. (near-mutilation is so not Hei's style) I would've kinda figured that somebody in Section 3 would suspect this even though Hei did kidnap her, although since we haven't heard everyone else's opinion it might still click for somebody. Misaki most of all is likely to realize this. Or they might just have her believe it after all to increase the tension between them, especially after their encounter this episode.

So, Yin's in Hell's Gate, eh? I would've thought she'd be somewhere better hidden than a flowerbed there, but since she seems to have awakened to whatever it is they want, I would guess she doesn't need to be hidden anymore.

Yin emerging form a cocoon in the middle of Hell's Gate? Oh boy. Yin in some kind of battle suit? Uh-oh.

But Yin grinning like that?

OH SHI-

Looks like the "Contractor killer" will be showing up next episode. I personally can't wait to see Hei's reaction. There's gonna be some serious drama there. :)

10/10

It feels to me like we should prep ourselves for an S3; it just seems like there's a bit too much to wrap up fully in 2 more episodes. Maybe Shion's plot, but there will definitely be open stuff left with the Syndicate, and I don't see the Hei/Misaki conflict ending so quick either. The un-conclusion of the plot with Yin is also a possibility; she's been pretty much gone for the shole season, and now truly shows up only 2 episode before the end. Seems a bit too short for the conclusion of whatever happened to her and for Hei to come to the rescue when we still have whatever Shion is planning.
