AHHHH!

I don't know what to think now. What happened 8 years anyway? Was it anything remotely related to contractors and the gates? It could have nothing to do at all.

AHHHH!


That ended earned this episode an instant 10/10.

I'm more curious about what's up with Hei, since Amber seemed to be worried about him in the message she sent to Kirihara.

And since Amber popped up in this season, I honestly would not be surprised if Pai showed up as well. I'm guessing that when Hei lost his powers, Pai's conscience went into Suou's necklace (hence why Suou loses control of herself and doesn't have a blue glow when she uses her power), and when Hei finds out about this, he's going to go crazy. Crazy!

I wonder how many years Amber actually peered into the future, wouldn't it be annoyingly confusing to look into so many different outcomes?

Pretty good episode even Kiko and Gai did something for plot.

I love to watch how Gai suffers. Mao staring him down, he still couldn't forget that he was put in cage. And if i remember correctly, Gai even wondered about throwing Mao into the river.

WoW and i didn't wait Amber to appear, it was bit creapy, and message waht she left to Misaki "At the end of that path, Hei will..."die ?
As for Izanami/Izanagi thing, it seems Shion is planning evil mass destruction or at least nothin good for mankind.
"From the Gate will come forth one, a being unknown" I wonder what the forth one means?
Genma and Hazuki got some character development. I hope they won't be killed in next episode. No one died in this episode that means more death in next episodes.
Is Hazuki's family behind section 3 ?

Madam Oreille is mystery, she appears from nowhere and disappears in next moment. She knows too much. Me thinks she is ploting not good thing. I only hope it won't be connected with killing all contractor, as was said in other thread.

Spoiler for Hover car:

The phrase "come forth" is an old English phrase that basically means to come forward (literal interpretation) or to become known (metaphorical interpretation). The best way to think of the phrase "From the Gate will come forth one, a being unknown" would be "someone that no one knows about will come from the Gate."

If it wasn't for that Mitaka document, would people really be going after Yin and Suou?

Decided to give this episode a Perfect 10.
Why you ask? 5 Reasons:
1. Hei decided to shave and because he did he was able to infiltrate the airport and kidnap that person from section 3

2. when misaki saw him she creamed her pants

3. he started to use his awsome knives again and showed section three that even though he doesnt have his powers he is no push over and he can still destroy transformer contractor and Yakuza contractor.

4. Heavy plot development with Suou.

5. Hover cars really do exist in the future.

cant wait for the next ep.

I had totally forgotten Amber's ability to see into the future. How far did she see and what exactly did she see? the plot thinkins.

Some heavy drama with Suou. I was happy when she actually got a chance to see her mom. But when she made a mistake the name i knew something was up and sure enough her mom says 8 years Suou died. That look in her eye was scary all i could think was what the hell is going on.

It was nice to see Hei get back to using those bad ass daggers, you dont always need powers to take out a contractor just good planning she got completely owned by Hei. I am pretty sure misaki thought she was going to die when she saw Hei

Don't forget Hei was pwning contractors long before he gained his powers. Thats what makes him such a bad ass.

pretty funning see Mao staring at Gai

totally loving the OST for this series, just rocks!!

Shion, perhaps not so much. He were not famous without the documents. But Yin had been sticking with the Black Reaper, and supposedly caused a mysterious massacre in the two year time.

So, what is fake? Suou's last eight year memory (if she were made 2 year ago), or her last 2 year memory (she were made 8 year ago, and it's true that Shion gained his power that day), or Suou's memory that is fake?

I'm not sure they can implant fake memories. I think they can just reimplant memories from one person to another. So I'm going on the hypothesis that Suou's memories are real, but that they have been reimplanted from the original Suou into a new one created 7-8 years before. Or perhaps Suou was revived and her mother wasn't told. I can picture mother leaving father because he was involved in contractor research that killed Suou. Or maybe even Suou became a doll then -- not that I really think she's a doll, just speculating.

Whatever the reason I think it was connected with the disappearance of the gate in South America which took place at the same time. Also Suou was born the same year the gates appeared and her father seems to have been involved with Pandora in some way. We also have the wierd red star and the "end has begun" part so I do think Suou is indeed very special and it's not simply a case of implanting her memories to a doll s1 style

Do you know if they do that for every single series that's popular to have its own board on AnimeSuki?

No just the titles that they eventually distribute in Region 1.

Or the titles that the Japanese companies have asked them to send C+Ds for on their behalf.

And those become FUNi's region 1 releases. That "on the Japanese companies behalf" is a smokescreen for "the contract hasn't completely dried and we can't announce it yet" imo. FUNi has first pick of the Japanese releases most of the time now so if there is a FUNi C&D then they have the title imo.

Not true, FUNi sent C&Ds for Mushi-Uta but that is not licensed to them nor does it seem that it ever will be licensed.
