Considering his expertise and Higurashi Daybreak, Kasai can actually wields a Kalashnikov as well. It looks like the shotgun is rather his weapon of choice, and it is quite logical considering they were in a choke point.
Shion would probably have some problem with the Shotgun, as the recoil might be a big burden on her. Supporting Kasai with the Kalashnikov is also another positive point (Speed and Range). Basically, they combined the weapons, so they are more efficient.

The thing I am curious on is why they didn't use a gun on Akasaka. It just seems like after he had done a bit of beat-em up action, they'd label him as a threat to the secrecy and kill him...
First, Akasaka knocked down his 2 pursuers, giving his "whereabouts" unknown to the yamainu.

Second, they completely ignore who is Akasaka, they could only see a strange man running like crazy from Rika's house. Considering he was alone, they can't exactly know his skills and such.

Finally, not only the Yamainu doesn't seem to have large ressource of firearm, but they are outside, in brightday. Much like the bomb issue, the use of firearms is too risky, as the gunfire might draw the attention of the police.
Another problem would be the fact that in the midst of the chaos, they can actually shoot Rika in the same process. A stray bullet can be reality and such risk for their operation is basically out of question.

Even if they were/are armed, they can't use any firearms against Akasaka considering the situation.

The hostage scene was brilliant. Tense, dramatic, one of the best scenes in the series so far. Really, just outstanding.

And then followed by Akasaka kicking ass and redefining the word "GAR". Wow. Brilliant ep.

Anime sequence + original music + original screen capture
Just having the music makes the scene feel completely different...
Is there any chance we can get this on Youtube? I don't understand enough moon to watch stuff on nicovideo.

Akasaka sequence has been reworked, and includes original caption pictures. Also the Shion + Irie scene has been modified with the game music also.

http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm1690883

seeing that makes me realize...BGM sure is important
I honestly think I can die now. Didn't Akasaka's partners in one of the TIPS call him a demon?

What a great episode.

This episode was on par with ep. 5 and 13 in terms of awesomeness. The feeling and tension was done perfectly without being over-the-top. I really felt a rush of desperation when the others were all trapped inside the hole. And Takano's smug smirk and evil laughter is making me hate her more and more.

Beating the dead horse once again, Akaksaka totally owned.

Oh, and what did Rika mean by calling the Yaimanu Peons?

Well, if you think about it (and you understood her threat to the Yamainu during the well scene), the Yamainu are dependent on the survival of Rika. In other words, she threatened to kill herself if they hurt her friends.

Ouch, a little worried after hearing that
Could it be you stop watching episodes as soon as the ending song begins? Quite few of the episodes had more parts after the ending song/credits

Every episode of Matsuribayashi has a scene after the credits. Matsuribayashi started with 14.

A question a bit offtopic: When Rika said she wanted for her breast to grow, i remembered an scene when she fondles Mion breast saying "makenai". Where it is from? Was it subbed if it was some extra?

This was such a great episode. Akasaka is truly awesome! Loved the Satoshi bit. Also, I can't wait to see what's going to happen to Tomitake. I personally hope he makes it out alive.

^i can read the "give fees" part, otherwise I dont know

Pretty nice ep, though the Akasaka fighting part needs a lot of work, just looks way too fake, otherwise, I'm so anticipating the next one

9/10

Probably was too violent for television to do a two-way gun battle, and maybe they had to do some kind of quick change. Yet if I were to guess on how it would have really been done:

Ahh, who would have thought Akasaka was so strong. I expected Tomitake to have that role. But ahh, my heart was pounding when I saw Akasaka like that. Just so cool!

Doesn't it mean "How much is the cost?" or something like that

These guys were at the bottom of their organization's chain of command. She was insulting their low rank.

It's from a short extra that was included in the DVD containing episodes 5 and 6 of Kai.
