God dammit, why is Shizuo so f-ing COOOOOOOL!!!!????
Celty finally finds where her head has been this whole time. Of course, we knew for quite a while, but the gears on this story are finally starting to turn. We also find out how the Yagiri family came into possession of Celty’s head and what happened to Harima Mika (and I thought Seiji was messed up even before this episode, holy shit). Mikado also jumps in all the fun and may finally start to have some sort of meaningful role in all of this.
Seiji and Celty’s head (let’s just call her Celty-Mika for now) are out doing their usual business. Celty-Mika gets jealous of Namie always talking to Seiji on his cell that she disposes of the phone in the nearby fountain. Because of this Namie tries to search for Seiji thinking that something has happened to him. Namie even tries to get Izaya to help but gains nothing but snide remarks from him. It also appears that Izaya might be communicating with Celty-Mika through text-messages warning her of people pursuing her.
Namie’s uncle was apparently responsible for smuggling Celty’s head into Japan. While Namie and her uncle were the only ones who knew about this, Namie eventually showed it to Seiji whom immediately fell in love with it. Later on, Seiji is found to have murdered Harima Mika after she discovered the head while Seiji was keeping it in his room. Namie took Mika’s body and attached Celty’s head to it somehow and the rest is history.
Back in present time, Celty notices Celty-Mika (geez this is going to get confusing) run past her. After she realizes that it’s her missing head, she chases after her but only for Celty-Mika to start screaming uncontrollably. Shizuo tries to calm down the situation (how ironic) but Seiji comes in and starts stabbing Shizuo with pens and pencils (yeah… pens). Celty-Mika runs off and Celty chases after her while Shizuo deals with that Seiji brat. Celty-Mika bumps into Mikado and Mikado “rescues” her from the pursuing Celty.
“I’ve always wanted to say this… Leave this to me. You go on ahead!” – Jesus, I love this show so much.
First of all, I’d like to say that I felt extreme joy when Shizuo chucked Seiji like a rag doll into that truck. I only wish he roughed him up a little more. But seriously, fighting with pens Seiji? At least aim for some vital points if you’re fighting against Shizuo… actually that might just make him more mad.
So Seiji really does have a head fetish since he was apparently in love with Celty’s head before it was even attached to a body. But gawd is he creepy as hell. I’m not sure if eating cup ramen is a way of coping with the stress of killing someone or if he simply does not care about anyone but himself and Celty’s head (not Celty-Mika since I doubt he even cares about the lower “half”). Also, our suspicions of Namie having a incestuous obsession for her little brother seems to be true. She’s even willing to kill off the one thing he loves just to get him back. Of course, it doesn’t seem that the feeling is mutual with Seiji. I’m starting to even think that their whole family is screwed up though I’m not sure how unordinary brother-complexes are with the shows this season (Baka to Test ep. 9, Dance in the Vampire Bund ep. 8*).
*I realize that Nanami and Yuzuru are not really brother and sister but it still bothers me.
I wonder if Celty-Mika’s love for Seiji stems from having Mika’s body or if the feelings are really from Celty’s head. I couldn’t imagine why she would even like the guy other than the fact that she probably could not remember anything but him. Speaking of which, I wonder why she doesn’t even remember anything. Could it be all of the experimentation? or could it be from getting attached to another body? Ah the more we learn, the more questions we will have…
Izaya as one of the chatters confirmed.
So Izaya is communicating with Celty-Mika. What this could mean and how it will affect things to come is still a large mystery. What is he trying to accomplish with Celty-Mika? Could he have foreseen Mikado’s involvement in this as well? Izaya you’re such a crafty bastard, but your maniacal laughter sure does give me the creeps (not as much as Seiji’s love mania though).
