More puddles!

Tougane was really showing off Kougami tendencies until they showed us his room... creepy. He definitely better not be Kougami now that we've seen that.

Even the Chief assumes that Mika won't last long with the way she thinks and acts. Pretty humorous right there. Though it was really nice to see her and Yayoi together like that, but they need to just get it on. Maybe if she becomes an Enforcer she'll throw caution to the wind along with her pants.

Kamui is weird. There's definitely some connection between him and one of the Chief brains, given their conversation amongst themselves, combined with not shutting down the Dominators he's commandeered. And he somehow transferred Shisui's eye into his own skull... sure, why not.

Tougane might be trying to copy Amamori's behavior and face, since there was a lot of references about replacing people with fakes in this episode.

If they replace her, they get best access to Sybil.

With all these targets that don't register correctly, Akane should have asked Sibyl to modify her gun again by now.

She can stop any stupid enforcers, investigators, or civilians at will

-corrected!

So the Dominator only relies on the rectal scan of an Inspector to read the CC of a person, and nothing more? What about the use of the other eye, or is it because he's "invisible" that it doesn't even register it?

I don't think you two know who's who. Tougane is the Enforcer obsessed with Akane. Kamui is the antagonist. Akane Tsunemori is the main character.

I think that both eyes are connected to Sibyl system since both glow, but probably only one is needed to do an id check of its owner and give him/her the Inspector privileges.

If you think that way is kinda logic, doing a scan of both eyes is a waste of time (if one eye passed the check is unlikely that the other doesnt) and could create problems if someone is blind from an eye for example or is unable to use one for an in duty injury.

In short criminals would go for the inspector and enforcers eye to shut down the system lol

And hope you meant retinal scan and not rectal scan, or Sibyl system might be way dirtier than i though XD

Whoops *totally meant retinal"

But you would think that Sybil would have other ways for identifying if someone is an inspector or not, instead of just relying on their eyes to measure their PP. It doesn't make any sense for Kamui, who is unregistered, to be able to use it in general.

Maybe he transplanted the female inspector eye into him.

In any case retinal scans are probably amongs the best security measures since is almost imposible to replicate an eye pattern unlike fingerprints that are much easier to get and trick a detector.


Theres no fool proof security measures and remember that the extracted eye was "alive", Kamui seems to know very well what hes doing and how he keeps exploiting blind spots of the system.

Remember Demolition Man where the antagonist extracts a guy's eye to pass the id check, on that society such cruelty and ruthleness was unthinkable and none though on that posibility. Probably thinking out of the box that is the Sibyl society plays on Kamui's favor

This felt very much like a set-up episode. We got a few scraps that are obviously going to play out down the road, but I didn't feel all that interested in most of what happened. Also, Kamui's Xanatos Gambits are edging into Young Justice territory. (Tat show beat the Xanatos Gambit trope so hard you could make glue from the remains.)

Yayoi is with Shion, remember? Well, maybe Shion wouldn't mind sharing, or they could all have a three-way together? Actually, I do half-expect that Mika's Hue will end up clouding at some point due to machinations from Kamui, and that Ginoza (and perhaps Yayoi) will have to help Mika come to terms with that fact. (Depends how much time the story decides to invest in Mika's character arc. Heaven knows it hasn't been anything to write home about so far.) If that happens, I also expect that Mika's Hue will get better afterwards. We already had Ginoza go from despising Enforcers to becoming one and letting go of his bitterness. It would be redundant to have Mika do the same thing.

Female inspector without an eye is totally mindbroke lol.
Mika setting off some flags.

Wonder if the mobile game is some kind of social commentary.

Mika finding the pictures of Akane in the guy's room was pretty freaky. Looks like doubleganger Akane might show up lol.

Guess that's how the guy is like a ghost, he covers himself with bodyparts so the scanners don't pick him up since its just 'parts/non-living things

Is anyone else starting to increasingly suspect that Akane is some kind of Asymptomatic individual?

These last few episodes have been heavy on the blood.

Looks like Akane has a stalker in Togane. His room was real creepy. Although now we can only wonder why he is so obsessed with her.

Love how even the chief says that Mika is not going to last long with that attitude. The conversation she was having with the other brains makes me more curious about Kamui.

Sybil still being an idiot as of always. The brains still believe that Kamui is fake despite the evidence.

I think that's what the brains are talking about in this episode when they talked about further evolving and how they mentioned when commenting on Akane, "besides, aren't you curious about how she gets affected by 'that'? "

So basically Kamui is a
1) Surgeon
2) App developer ( Hungry Chicken)
3) Hacker
4) Holo Developer
5) Murderer
6) and lots of other things... It will probably be more surprising to find something he can't do.

Not Complaining, Hurray for hyper competent antagonist!

Where is Kogami when you need his badasserry?
This bunch inforcer and inspector are too bad. Really if sybil hires those kinda of people our society would be done for and beside America wouldnt even let such system exist in the first place.

Base on the OP looks like the real mastermind is Togane and Kogami is imprisoned by someone. Probably Togane copying all Kogamis moves.
