Bleh. Just a bleh day. A day when nothing really bad has happened but nothing amazing has happened either. Just a normal day of chores and TV. Maybe not a bleh day then? More like a normal day. Not every day can be amazing and I certainly wouldn't want every day to be awful. Just an uneventful day thus far. Yes that is the wordage. Uneventful. XD Get those blehs aside and be grateful for normalness.
Episode Summary: Neko and Ryouta look on in horror as this Shino girl bleeds out. Kikako walks over to the armless girl and rips out her harnest. Neko still has a glint in her eye, that she wants revenge. Ryouta points out that Neko shouldn't risk her life on a dead girl, only the living. Neko looks upset but was about to agree to leave when Kotori just runs out in the open screaming for Shino. I SHALL SAVE YOU! Obviously Kikako being 5 feet away sees the stupid girl and starts walking over. Neko tells Ryouta to run as her plan is now to save an alive girl...Kotori. Ryouta is against this plan and Kana is screaming that her vision is going to come true just that Kotori isn't the actual killer. Kazumi tells everyone they need to get out of dodge as the explosion has caught the interest of nearby cops/people. Ryouta notices a flaw in Kikako's attack so if Neko wants to play the hero he can help. Neko gets out in the open and Kikako focuses her attention on her. Neko tries the whole we shouldn't be fighting at all speech which Kazumi finds stupid in this situation. Still Kazumi uses the cameras and nearby lights to block anyone from casually entering the area. Kikako gets ready to fire her blast and....Neko flings herself on the ground away from said blast. Ryouta the genius has figured out that Kikako's blast is powerful but takes a long time to charge and she can't switch the beam mid stream. So Kikako just keeps firing away and Neko keeps on blocking it. The plan is to get Ryouta close enough to Kikako to hang her up. He is distracted when he sees Kotori running off in the other direction. He finds her near a pole where she was using her own hair ribbon to tie herself up. She had planned on switching places with Neko so Kikako will kill her instead. Ryouta clearly is not down with this plan as he wants to save all the girls. Kotori starts bleeding signaling she is out of pills and hasn't taken one in a while. She says no matter what she is going to die anyway and she rather die saving Neko. Meanwhile Neko is still dodging beams and wondering what is taking Ryouta so long. Kikako is slowly starting to understand that Neko is flinging herself on the ground and is formulating her own plan. Ryouta is becoming distraught because Kotori wants to die and won't accept the pills the other girls have, saying she won't take life from someone else again.
Ryouta desperately tries to think of how to save all the girls when TADA he has an idea. Kana senses he got an idea because the future has changed. Neko keeps on trying to dodge beams when Kikako uses some hooks arm thingy to tie Neko into place. Clearly the end is near. Then poof Kotori changes places with Kikako and Ryouta simply reaches over and hangs up Kikako and places a paper bag on her head. Ryouta tries to ask Kikako where the lab is and such but Neko doesn't think the girl knows. Kazumi warns everyone that she can't keep people away any longer and they are in danger since you know...they are witches. Ryouta doesn't bother with Kikako this time as she is a killer. Kikako is picked up by the lab and is going to be punished for slightly failing. It is noted by the others someone used their power to cover up this whole nonsense later. But as they escape the scene they realize that Kotori has left to die alone. Kazumi finds the club form Kotori filled out and the girl actually used her temporary address. They arrive to find Kotori still alive and with her arms which apparently is a good sign. Ryouta tells Kotori to take the pill. Kotori won't and explains why. She escaped the lab with her friend Chie but of course they ran out of pills. Kotori had a birthday soon and Chie wanted to give her the rest of the pills so Kotori could turn 16 and go to school (since Chie is a little hacker too). Chie's birthday was also soon Kotori argued but they certainly didn't have enough pills for that. Chie simply stopped taking the pills and fell apart in Kotori's hands. She asked Kotori to SMILE even when things went bad and to think of her. Thus Kotori smiling at inappropriate times. Kotori is happy she got to spend a little time in school and the club so it's okay. Both Ryouta and Neko point out WHY Kotori should live on...funny and serious. Eventually Kotori realizes they want her to live so she takes the damn pill and lives long enough to wish Chie's grave happy birthday. Later that week Ryouta goes out to buy food for all the girls now that Kotori is also living there with them. He thinks to himself that they all thought Kotori was a killer due to a missing detail in Kana's vision and they need to be more careful. He arrives at the conservatory to find all the girls naked because playing in water and having fanservice is fun. Before he is killed he cooks them a meal and brings the subject to getting them more pills. He thinks he can trust someone enough to help him but he is going to need to bring proof for this to work. He asks Neko the depths of her ability and the other girls agree to trust Ryouta. Ryouta goes to a small college and talks to a young scientist named Kogoro. Kogoro may or may not have the hots for Ryouta. Ryouta asks why Kogoro hasn't left this small town and simply the man is lazy. Ryouta gets to the point, saying he has super amazing classified info but Kogoro might be killed for it and so would he. Kogoro doesn't believe in the supernatural so Ryouta has Neko blow up several things in the office as she can see things from the window. Once Kogoro is satisfied he gets a weird look on his face, thinking this will be fun. THE END!
You know...I appreciate this anime. Because for once I am actually the one screaming at the screen. DO THIS! MOG DO THIS! Sometimes in animes the answers are out of left field. Or contact information I was not privy to thus I was unable to suggest them. With this anime we got a bunch of teenage girls with little education or battle skills. So I am glad they are not thinking things out. Unless I am thinking too highly of this show. Ryouta looks like a genius either way.
So when we last saw our teenagers Shino was mighty dead. Didn't get a confirmation that the cat was okay. Slightly disappointing there but whatever. Instead of getting out of dodge right then and there Neko felt the need to look at Shino get her harnest ripped out. Like Ryouta said it was pointless to do anything now. Yes revenge is nice but us all getting killed is useless. Would Shino want that? No? But we have to take many precious moments thinking this all over. This show does that a lot. Like bleeding to death, have a conversation. Girl with pointy teeth and lazer breath, hang out 5 feet from her and discuss why this rescue mission would fail as a revenge mission.
I do get it though. Neko wants to be a good friend. They were in this lab for years. I am sure she got close to a lot of the girls. And even if they don't know every single girl personally they went through something together. Something horrible. And then they weren't even worth saving so they had to escape together. As long as the witch isn't trying to kill Neko....at the moment she wants to save them. Heck I guess a witch could try and kill her and she still want to save them because she knows that they aren't doing this on purpose. They are just trying to survive. So Neko feels bad that she couldn't save the girl and wants to stop Kikako from killing another witch. So not really revenge...well yes revenge but also a preventative measure.
