I think at that moment Hei called her by her name to give it more impact. If he tried to say it in the usual way she wouldn't notice it at first and it was a matter of seconds. When someone calls you by your name suddenly you usually stop doing what you're doing and so it's a good way to attract attention. Because of this I really don't think Hei put that much meaning into it like the Japanese meaning.
Of course there are other valid reasons for him to coninue to call her that and they don't have anything to do with this but in that moment I really think he did it to get her attention fast.

I think that Norios mom was a pretty interesting contractor. They showed us with Tanya that contractors loose all their feelings and only think rational but his mother seems to be aware of her sons feelings.

edit: I loooooooooove the glasses girl from section ...3? 6? Damn. She is hot! Also when they showed her in the submarine (or was that in EP5) she looks scary D: Oh and Im a fag for the twins :3

Actually, if someone is an alcoholic, then it's not a trivial thing. That's pretty significant to use the last of your stash for cooking purposes and then concede not to drink anymore.

Someone in s1 -- I think it was November11 -- said that contractors don't lose their emotions, they just don't base their decisions on them. I think both seasons have been a bit inconsistent about this, but that's what he said.

Hopefully, all this screentime is to build up for the tragic death scene. Instead of the awful alternative of him suddenly developing contractor powers and tagging along as part of the gang.
Don't even scare me like that!

Apart from that, great episode. Loved the little kitchen scene between Suou and Hei. Ok, it's possible that she's changing her attitude towards Hei a bit rapidly but hey, it's not like she jumping to hug him already. She just seem to be confused with his behaviour and starts to notice some degree of humanity in him.

I found Hei hitchhiking a ride on a roof rather amusing.
And did anyone notice how much sugar July puts into Mao's tea???

In the manga Harvest said that contractors don't lose their emotions ; contractors will only act on what makes rational sense.

Michiru's case is different then Suou's and Tanya's. Michiru has been a contractor for however old Norio is but the two girls have only recently became contractors. I'm guessing that "veteran" contractors have their way around things, such as showing emotions or what not.

I think it shows the difference in the relationships. Tanya's kept her dim awareness of Mika's feelings - she just doesn't care. She must have felt flattered and curious about the love confession, and she liked him a bit, but that's all. So when she became a contractor, all that ceased to matter.

Michiru, OTOH, did the rational thing to protect her son - by going away. She could easily do that because, as a contractor, her love wasn't the same as an attachment.

This is what i also felt about Michiru's character so it did not surprise me that her character acted in such a way. One thing as mentioned that we learn about contractors is their feelings cease to motivate their actions unlike normal humans where emotion drives majority of our actions, therefore if its not rational to a contractor they wont bother. Although becoming a contractor changes the way feelings are perceived with them you can not remove human instinct in this case it would be a mothers connection to her child. A childs love for a mother is rational and vice versa. She did not show affection in the traditional sense but trying to protect her sons feelings made sense because of the bond a mother and child share. Logic dictated Michiru's actions after she become a contractor right to her reunion with her son and sadly her death. Tanya's situation was different as Anh_Minh stated. Analyzing how she acted before she became a contractor and afterwords gave a pretty clear picture of why she acted the way she did. At least thats how i interrupted situations.

I think I should have guessed that it was Yin. I thought it was Amber actually, with the way they were referring to her as Hei's girl. I was expecting a new character to be in there too. Guess I missed that, huh? lol.

I really really really want to know what happened in this two year gap. Luckily there are OVAs bundled or included as extras on the DVD/BD of the first season (nice marketing idea).

I think you should wait for the thread.

I have to say though, I like Hei way much better in this episode for some reason.

I agree on the Hei likability... he's much better when he acts nicer.

That Norio kid was overdue for some tragedy. Hopefully that's the last we'll see of his sorry bulimic self.

I miss the time when Hei was a cool and mysterious bastard with zapping powers.

Yeah.. that's why I'm re-watching 1 season xP
Now I think (especially after watching 7 ep) that 1st season is much better than 2nd... for now...

To me the ending for the sixth episode was an emotive and poignant conclusion to the Hokaido Arc.

Spoiler:


What good things turned out are that Hei finally called Suou by her name and stopped ordering her to use her Contractor powers.
