Tanya was a goner the moment her boss was killed since we all know she wasn't going to tag along with the group. Now, if only this is a 24 episode series then we can have more of Suou vs Tanya moments. I think Tanya had the potential to gain back some of her personality as be a part of Suou's development but the damn shota shot her.

As for the next episode, I'm pretty sure that Suou will learn a thing or two about what happened two years ago as well as the black reaper. It seems like every time she gets upset at Hei it triggers some sort of recovery for Hei.

if she finds out about her brother and father manipulating her, it's more likely that she'll be in denial and just want to find them and ask them herself.

At the end of it, she's going to get upset and pissed either way. I still don't think that the guy there is the real father. He acts more like a servant. Shion treated him differently too imo.

The song that is played when Tanya talks to Suou is good,mentioned this earlier but again!

I LOLed at the preview...

Spoiler for Preview stuff:


Shion's has some deadly sniping skills! And yeah, Repnin must've pissed his pants when he saw how "good" Hei was in eating.

Deadly? Lawl he was so close and was shooting with an AT rifle, no worries about missing at THAT distance.

Im just surprised the stupid little kid could handle the recoil on that bad baby, same goes for suou...but then again, it would be stupid if they got blown backwards each time they shot lawl...would make for a nice getaway though ;P

Otherwise, a highly enjoyable episode, with action, events, information, humanity, sorrow, and more questions. Suou and July walking into Ginza hand in hand. "Memory of the future"....

One of my favorite things, as in last week's preview, was seeing Hei eating like the old Hei.
i have a feeling, that at this rate of the series progression, with fillers taken into account, that the season will end the moment suou reunites with shion

I noted with interest that as soon as it became clear Suou was splitting from Hei, July took off like a shot after her. It's clear his loyalties are unabashedly with her - but why? What is a doll's motivation to attach itself to a contractor in this situation?

The only thing is, maybe he is the real father, and the real father was like Shion's servant, too. I remember the father warning Suou about spending too much time with Shion. Shion seems to be extremely powerful in some way (every way?). Maybe he can even bring Tanya and Nico back, somehow?

@Guardian Enzo -- Maybe it's just that July is her spotter, so his function as a doll is connected with hers as a contractor. But probably it's because she has been making efforts to communicate with him as a human being. As Hei did with Yin.

@Vulcannis -- As far as I can recall, that was the fist time Hei admitted killing Suou's father, although maybe she already believed he did. Noriomom's ability was water manipulation, but I'm not sure whether she had a spout from the fountain ready to use, or Yin just took over and did it. In either case, I think you may be onto something in saying that Yin may take over a contractor's power and use it to kill them. I still have no idea why she would want to kill them, except in that case.

Damn i felt bad for Tanya just when she managed to regain a little something she gets half her body blown away. Well it was only a matter of time and even though she did regain some of those lost feelings her Contractor nature quickly covered them up such a shame. She honestly did nothing wrong she just happen to be a contractor and that was the luck of the draw. Suou has now lost both of her closest friends one eaten by cockroaches and the other one blown away by Suous very own twin with his own Rifle. Interesting things are starting to form.

There sure is a lot of tragedy to go around with this series.

July following Suou means that Suou isn't without protection. He has been taking the initiative to keeping track of her. He can always call Hei for help like he did when they got kidnapped. Lots of glass in Tokyo.

July can't call Hei for help since he lost his contractor powers though. Wasn't Suou the one who noticed that July was calling for help and told Hei?

But Mao is with Hei pretty often and he can still see the ghosts.

No, Hei in the last ep said to thank July for rescuing her. The only way for Hei to have known where they were is with help from July (ep.7 21:41). Last ep. thread, we thought that he could see the observational spirits again.

This ep. his appetite returned. Again, a similar arguement could be made as to how he found her again.

His appetite returned because he stopped drinking, and just like 2 episodes ago he couldn't see Yin's observational spirit and nothing has happened since then to think he regained that ability.

1. We have no direct info that Hei can see observation ghosts, but I can't see how he found Suou in ep7 if he couldn't, especially since he told her to thank July. Hei was with Suou all that time, so he can't have told Hei. Could he somehow tell that July had obscured Ilya's vision with an observation ghost in the windshield?

2. I haven't heard of sake being a complete substitute for food, although beer can be. Sake has a higher alcohol content than beer, so you'd have to be very, very drunk to get enough food value, I think. I'm not sure what the staff is trying to tell us with this shift from sake to food: just cleaning up his act, or getting his powers back?
