That threw me off. I didn't expect Nino to be the one in trial.

KyoAni doesn't operate like that. It would also change the POV of the novel.

Spoiler for episode 10:
my guess is that mirai is in Akihito's body. The one she tries to talk to(winter part) is the human part while the rest is all kyokai no kanata.

Agreed. Everything makes sense now but this episode gave me a lot of questions. Where is Mirai now? Is she inside Akihito since she's hunting the Beyond the Boundary? Who's the old guy that Izumi has been talking to the entire team? Why is the Society of Spirit World Warriors competing with the Nase family?

Color me quite surprised by Episode 10 as well. Whereas KnK was pretty much subpar thorough most episodes, it actually does give a pretty good insight when you factor the "plot twist".
While I was part of those who were quite annoyed by Mirai's goofy victim syndrom, this episode reveals itself as being some sort of eye opener. At least, Mirai's role in the previous episodes does make sense, and it changes drastically her intent and interactions with Akihito.

Now, if only they didn't shoehorned so many random jokes and Sakura's purpose...

Assuming it works in the same way.

I don't think Mirai is inside Akihito.

Spoiler for about Mirai:

I disagree... Sakura's purpose wasn't that shoe horned when you think about it.

She was a counter for Mirai. She was told by Miroku that she could harness the power all for herself IF she would kill Mirai.

What this makes me think is that Miroku was already keeping tabs at Izumi's plan for a long time.

errr... if Izumi told Mirai everything she needed to know about Akihito even before episode 1 then what's with all the "Do I look normal to you" drama when he went berserker the first time? Well it's no secret by now that this series has some serious writing issues...

Also... Mirai's blood is like magic. It does everything! Ok not everything but you get the point...

Well the line was originally thrown by Mirai which was later used by Aki. She did respond in a more light hearted and humorous manner.

The drama we perceived in ep 4 was parallel but in a way same to what it truly was in the revelation.

During the second half of ep 10, the drama of ep 4 was revealed to be Mirai seeing the conflicts within Aki. Seeing the contrast between the creature's wild instinct kick-in to his kind hearted side. She only saw him at the start as a target/youmu which she obviously somewhat mellowed to after a few eps in.
