Ok, they did it: Sion and Nezumi kissed! Oh my… When I was talking about male-loving scene… didn’t Sion wanted to have sex with Safu? Oh no, I remember, it’s Safu who wanted to have sex with Sion… This is the scene everyone was waiting for. This was a little troubling since either one or the other seem to find it strange to kiss like that… It’s like if it was almost a normal thing. Anyway, let’s review the rest (since that scene only last a few second!). This is afterall a so exciting episode with love, fight, lie and suspense… ok, I’m pilling up a bit there!
The episode start with Nezumi asking a service to the dogkeeper. Since that one didn’t wants to help him at first, Nezumi (that sick bastard…) menace him not to sing for his soul when he die… This is a strange threat, but it seem to work. Nezumi wants information about the correctionnal facility, and since dogkeeper makes business with a janitor there, it should be easy.
The next part of the episode show Sion mother who is looking for Safu. She goes to the “Beehive” at the center of the city, but there, they told her that this person never existed. Sion mother is starting to questionning the city too. An old woman sit on her side on a bench and start talking about the fact that no.6 is an utopia. Karan don’t answer and a friend comes to take her home. That man told her that he have been inverstigation no.6 and that old woman could have been a spy.
In the West district, Sion is walking with Rikuga. He had ask him to find some medical instrument to make a serum against the killer bees. Rikuga is touched by Sion kindness and want to buy him some new cloths. Looks at that hilariousface:
But in a second hand cloths store, Sion find Safu’s coat. He now understand what happen. Dogkeeper, who was doing the job for Nezumi, ask him why he didn’t tell Sion about the fact that he was searching for the correctionnal facility. Nezumi don’t want to answer him. Returning home, Nezumi find a feast that Sion have made for him. He try to makes him said that he wants to help Safu, but Sion don’t tell a word. And then, he kiss him, saying it’s a good-night kiss. But Nezumi isn’t such an idiot and he know that he will put himself in danger. On the morning, both of them fight (yes, litterally!), and they reconciled and everyone is happy. They promise each other to be there and not lie anymore. This is so touching…
This episode was a bit better that the last one, but everything remain so cliché. The relationship between Nezumi and Sion is a bit boring, because we already know how it will end. On the sixth episode he point a knife on his throat and now they kiss… And the fact that there is an idden truth about no.6, Safu who is used as an experience sample in the correctionnal facility, people who doesn’t exist anymore when they are take out of the system… we all have seen those thing somewhere else. Variation on an already-seen theme can be interesting if it’s taken on another angle. But here, I don’t know. I keep on watching it because it’s fun to watch and well made, but this anime won’t make history.
I have also find that the end of this episode come a bit too fast: they kiss, they fight, they rebecome friend, and everyone is happy! Some characther aren’t well devellope and I’d like to know more about the truth behind No.6. For the good point, I began to like the dogkeeper character. He started to worry about Sion too. I think Rikuga is also an ally. He looks like he wants to help Sion too. The fact that they always call Nezumi “Eve” really makes me laught, I remember that laughable scene each time. The fact that Karan find an ally for investigate No.6 from the inside is good too. The show is starting to get substance around the secondary character and this is a good thing. And that fight scene as so funny!
