This week’s narrator is magnificent Kida-kun himself. As Mikado is getting more curious about the Dollars, Kida becomes more and more worried that Mikado will fall to the darkness of the city. Kida also crosses a few punks who claim to be from a colors gang called the Yellow Scarves.
Other events include Celty performing another delivery job while getting attacked by a mysterious slasher. Celty is troubled by this after hearing voice coming out from her wound given to her by the slasher. It was rather interesting to see Celty have this human side to her when she was bothered that she was called a monster and was afraid that the slasher was some sort of alien (I thought it made her a little cute).
We also learn more about Anri’s past relationship with the missing Mika. The two used to hang out with each other all the time in middle school, but that obviously ended when Mika went on a supposed “trip” to ease her pain. It turns out that Mika was someone who was stalking Seiji Yagiri but was rejected. What’s still unknown is who is that girl Seiji is with now and why she looks so similar to Mika (since she apparently isn’t Mika according to Anri or Mikado). Anri said she ran for class representative in order to surpass Mika since it was something Mika always wanted to do but that she felt that her decision was a bit unfair. After telling her story, Mikado said it was the right thing for her to do but that she shouldn’t tell people that it was unfair since it’s like she’s asking for forgiveness. Mikado shows a bit of brutal honesty here which was unexpected and made me respect him a little bit more.
We also get introduced to a bedridden girl who apparently is related to Kida and is acquainted with Orihara. Whether this girl is a relative of Kida’s or is a friend/past girlfriend is still unknown. However, given Kida’s tone during the narration and his attitude towards color gangs and the Dollars in the city, Kida is probably bitter at them for something that happened between them and got the girl involved possibly. Orihara probably saved Kida from the gangs or something.
Not much else to say about this episode. I feel that these posts are getting shorter and shorter. The next episode better have something more to write about! ><
