The plot develops further as Murasaki and the gang go to celebrate Shichi-Go-San at a small shrine nearby. The Kuhouins approach further on Samidare apartment to the point where Shinkurou and Murasaki will have to flee.
Much of this episode revolved around Murasaki and Shichi-Go-San (basically a holiday for young children) so I won’t go into much of it in my summary.
Throughout the episode, agents from the Kuhouins are scouting out the area around Samidare apartment for Murasaki. Even when they go off to the shrine, the men follow them there. A new character appears who happens to be one of Renjou’s sons, Ryuuji who is possibly handling the situation with Murasaki and probably controlling the agents.
Shinkurou finds out from Ginko that there’s no girl named Murasaki in the Kuhouin family records. Not too surprising since we know who Murasaki’s real mother was. However, this seems to hit Shinkurou pretty hard. After hearing this news, Shinkurou heads back to the apartment where he is confronted by the two men scouting the place earlier. He is asked about Murasaki and attacked by the two men before Yayoi jumps in to chase them off.
This will probably be the last episode for “fun times” before we get into the rest of the main story. Now that Murasaki has been found, there will be no time for fun and games. There was also a few bad premonitions throughout the episode, possibly foretelling a series of bad events to come soon. All I can say is that I’m expecting some crazy shit to happen in the next few episodes.
There was a few parts during this episode that I thought was charming and funny to watch. The first was when they were talking to Benika on the phone about letting Murasaki go to the shrine. I certainly wasn’t expecting to see her in that situation while talking in that manner.
The second was when Yayoi was talking to herself about the Shisa to herself after everyone else already had a discussion about it. I know that Yayoi likes to keep things to herself and not get involved in other people’s affairs, but it was kind of cute to watch he return to the topic after everyone else has already gone.
I didn’t really get this part where Yuuno was talking about Tamaki and how she apparently knows how to put on Kimonos. What was Yuuno so surprised about and why was she blushing? Is there something I’m missing here? Anyways, I’m just a little curious about that.
Seems like another bad guy appears other than Renjou (who might be considered bad or not), in the form of his very own son. He seems to have a evil and twisted vibe coming from that sinister smile of his and how he even plays mind games on his own father. I’m expecting some crazy shit coming from this guy himself.
Next episode seems to have more confrontations from the Kuhouins and in larger numbers. This shot reminds be of Kill Bill for some reason, but anyways, the plot should be strictly main storyline from now on unless they twist it up in some way we totally won’t see happening. @_@
