Another good episode. I think at this point, K has found how it should work and it’s about time too. We’ve reached the halfway point of the story and I don’t think the show has any more time for goofing off. So, what did K bring this time? Well, there were some short but sweet fight scenes with Kuro and then there was Neko showing off her trippy power of illusion. So in other words, this was quite a visual feast. There seemed to be some new music in this episode too. As for plot content? This episode doesn’t disappoint in that department either. We, the viewer, sort of learn the intentions of Blue and why they want Shiro. Apparently he has the power to tip the scales to their side. Nothing very specific but is sure as hell beats “because he’s the main character and we’re the supposed bad guys”. Also, this episode reveals just how powerful Neko really is. She can alter memories but was she responsible for everyone forgetting about Shiro? Nothing was really “said” about it. What I want to ask is why she has this power in the first place. It seems as if she met Shiro purely out of chance. She just happened to be there when Shiro fell from the sky. Man, this show is toying with some really confusing concepts. Burden’s on them to clear everything up by the final episode.
