Long time no write!!! X__X Has it been almost two weeks already? Yeah this job schedule is still not want I am used to. I get up in the mornings saying okay I will get some blogging done today. Well it doesn't happen so after work I am like okay now I can get things done. Then I sit on the couch and POOF it is time for bed. X___X Is this what it is like to be adult? How do people with kids do it?
Episode Summary: Art and his partner are driving around, talking about the Minimum serial killer. While it is good they have a motive it doesn't make it any less creepy. Still the partner talks about how Minimum Holders have it good in life now, that being born with one automatically makes you successful and up for good jobs. Especially when places like the Facultas Academy is backing you up. How fair is that for the other people in the world? Art doesn't believe that and the two keep driving. The next day Hamatora is approached for a job by a woman named Shouko. She works for...well an organization with a super long name. Basically it is to protect our youth. POY. You know, the people trying to censor anime and mangas? Anyway she is paying the company money to go in and find some scandalous things about about the Facultas Academy as she is sure they are up to no good. Like the cop partner said earlier the Facultas Academy cranks out and “helps” Minimum holders get a handle on their powers and eventually post of them rise to the top of society. Since Shouko is in charge of ALL THE CHILDRENS it is unfair that only a few get this treatment and surely this Academy is a bad thing. So she wants the boys to go in and find out some dirt as the long arm of the government kiss ass law won't allow her to do so. She thinks that Nice in particular hates the Academy to which he is like weeeeeeell. It sounds like he doesn't want to take the job but hello money so Murasaki is there. On the car ride home Shouko tells her associates all went well now that they have Murasaki on board. Apparently he was ranked 2nd out of the entire Academy. All information on the person who ranks 1st is unknown. Shouko then tries to call her son but he doesn't answer which gets some shifty face from her driver/colleague. Murasaki is spying on top people in the Facultas Academy but is finding nothing. Nice has decided to stay back and help clean the cafe. He decides later on to go investigate why Shouko is so extreme.
Art and his partner are researching POY and it seems they are...well kill joys in many senses of the word. Art finds something interesting and leaves. Shouko is then seen getting a phone call as the police has gone to POY to see...Professor Moral. You know, the pointy teeth guy with a brain fetish? Not that Art knows that. Art has researched the POY and found that they (POY) have purchased a large quantity of a drug called Nemcrois. Now when investigating the crimes in episode 1 both suspects have large amounts of Nemcrois in their system. And since you can't get this drug in Japan all suspects point to the person who has the drug on record, Professor Moral. He is a graduate from the Facultas and looks shady. Moral says that only one member of POY purchased to drug and gave it to him but Art is more concerned on what research Moral is doing that would need said drug. Moral eventually explains he is researching innate Minimum powers as he is believes in equality and the poor people out there that have no abilities. They tiptoe around the issue of the brainless Minimum Holders but Moral thinks it would take a brave man to kill someone as a weak person is stopped by society's pressure. That one day Moral will create a world where everyone can be brave and equal. Art is upset by this but Moral points out that his research will actually help Art, a man who went to Facultas but couldn't produce an ability. Art decides strangling Moral would be a positive use of his time but stops when he gets a phone call because apparently he has his own death wish. He is called away on urgent matters but promises Moral this isn't over yet.
Now for some reason Art was also going to investigate Shouko and the YOP. Did I miss why? They were off trying to find the serial killer of Minimums, not help out Nice and Murasaki on their mission right? You know how there is a friend or topic of the week and everyone just seems to talk about it? Yeah I think that is what is happening. Or you know Art and his partner were looking into the drug and it just so happened to link to YOP the second she contacts Murasaki and friends. Because that is knowledge any police officer can have. Like oh yeah this organization that is still running bought a huge quantity of a dream not available in our country. Let me figure out Blue's Clues like no one else has tried to do and see what is going on here.
So off Art went with his new acquired and questionable information. Maybe I did miss something but everything got put together very fast. Maybe because Art is just o so smart. Or a drug that is not allowed/sold in Japan is monitored but no illegal. What does this Nemcrois drug do? Well that might have been important information. Information that I think was not said at all, not just I wasn't paying attention. Art walked into Mr. Brains in Jars/Moral's creepy office and was like the YOP bought you tons of Nemcrois why? Never explained why. I mean...why is this drug not allowed in Japan? What do it do? Why you would need large batches of it? Since we know Mr. Moral is the one running around taking brains and what not from Minimum Holders I guess this drug is to help non Minimum Holders transition or something. But it wasn't explained. Like Art found his foot in the door and went with the questions he already had. Like aha this must be the serial killer yet I will not explain to the viewers why I think so.
