This episode starts with a familiar face; April. She is shown leaving a club after drinking massive amounts. Once she gets outside she sees Amber and she starts to run towards her while making a call to November 11. He doesn’t pick up so she leaves a message saying that she just saw February. Just as she gets across the street Amber leaves in a black car. April is caught in a large explosion after trying to chase the black car.
November comes to see how April is doing in the hospital and he plays the message she left for him to the boss. In the message she states how she clearly saw February (April) as well as a small boy with odd eye colors. Later November’s boss mentions how they haven’t seen April for 5 years so why has she suddenly reappeared. He also mentions Amber being a double agent and leaking memory to other sources.
The Dark Green Spot is a subject throughout most of the episode Kanami explains it as a sun spot that happens once every several years. The spot is so concentrated it makes the sun look like an eye. Ever since the gate went up they haven’t been able to see the spot. So they are wondering what will happen the next time it occurs.
Hei is then shown helping the red and green eyed boy from before. He gets a necklace out of a tree for him. They then exchange names and we learn the boys name is Maki. They then talk about the necklace and part ways. Hei continues to walk down the street until he is intercepted by Mao and Huang who are there to brief him on his next mission. His mission is to recover the other meteor fragments.
Meanwhile, Maki is returning to what looks to be a bar. A man is questioning him as to why he returned and he said that he forgot his important necklace. He said it was blown away by the explosion, and was lost somewhere. He starts to refer to the man as Amagirl and they continue their conversation, apparently Maki has the meteor fragment and he can now reek havoc upon the city. He changes the subject and asks where Amber went, Amagirl tells him that she needs to be out there searching for the final key, and for all we know this could be anything. We then see Amber buying an umbrella on a clear day, what an odd girl!
It seems that when the Dark Green Spot happened in South America it wiped out their gate. Kanami is sure the same won’t happen to them. Meanwhile, we see Misaki and her supervisor walking down a hall talking about the recent explosions all over the city. They meet with someone and they ask for helping saying that something was stolen out of the gate (metro fragment?) and they need help to recover it. As they are talking they hear a large explosion from outside and the CIA building is being attacked.
November 11 is in a parking garage getting information when he is confronted by Hei. Hei tells him to return the meteor fragment; he says they don’t have it. November also talks about February or as Hei knows her, Amber. Hei is shocked that Amber is back, November tells him the explosions are her doing. November speeds away in his car and suspects where the next explosion will be and sure enough as he pulls up, there is a large explosion. He gets out of the car and sees Maki, he then uses his ice power and it seems like Maki lost. Maki ended up tricking November and he detonates all of his hand and foot prints behind November. (I hope he’s not dead ><)
We see Hei reminiscing about the time he spent with Amber and suddenly he starts running. Amber is then shown at Yin’s shop, it starts to rain.
Impressions: It seems to me like they are finally meshing all of the previous stories into one I am really enjoying it. I really liked this episode the November 11 episodes were my favorite and im glad to see them back. The only problem I had with this episode was all the damn advertising, I’ve been noticing pizza hut signs in every episode but in this one there is about 10 advertisements within the first 8 minutes it’s really getting out of hand. I can understand 1 ad per episode for realism but not 10 of the same company within feet of each other. New intro and ending this episode, I like the intro although it reminds me of initial D. The ending doesn’t fit the series at all the old intro and ending were a lot better in my opinion.
