That first half of the episode was just amazing. The dialogue between Yasako and Isako was just right, and I actually cried when Isako started to break down. Yasako really tried to comfort Isako in the way she would speak to Kyoko, whenever she’s scared. When Kyoko arrived, and asked Isako to save Densuke, she only made things even better.

The rest of the episode built up for the final few episodes of this series. We get a few confirmations of things that the observant ones among us probably already figured out: Nekome and Takeru are brothers, Takeru is the owner of the pink cat with ears, and he basically betrayed Isako out of jealousy towards his brother. I’ve also been reading a few posts from animesuki, and it seems that the reason why Nekome has access to the stronger versions of the Sacchis is because he works for the government, and can basically use them as he pleases.

Also, Densuke indeed is no ordinary dog. I couldn’t catch the details due to my lack of Japanese, but there actually is a chance for both Yasako’s grandfather as 4423’s brother to be alive. Yasako’s grandfather also seemed to know about 4423 before both of them disappeared. The final parts of the episode basically consist out of a chase for Densuke, after Nekome found out that he’s important somehow I must say that it was awesome to see Daiichi in action again. From what I understood is that Densuke is the key to access Coil’s domain, which is what I suspect to be the place where the humanoid illegals live. Hence why both Yasako and Kyoko encountered them.

What’s also interesting is how Nekome refers to Yasako as “sensei”, and how a password to some of the guy’s secret stuff is located inside Nekome’s database. Does this mean that Yasako’s grandfather used to work for the same company that Nekome is working for?

    “but there actually is a chance for both Yasako’s grandfather as 4423’s brother to be alive.”

    -gasp!

    Of course I meant 4423 himself… not his brother. :P

    Still, this is speculation, basically since the one who told Isako that 4423 is dead wasn’t the most trustworthy source (being Takeru and all).

    Nekome didn’t seem to be having much luck in trying to control the black automatons. He may have access to the system, but he’s not in control. He’s got his own agenda, though he may be trying to leverage a connection to the legal bureau to pursue it.

    Yasako’s grandfather was a doctor in the MegaMass hospital, and was treating the first round of Coil victims. We knew that already, at least by implication. We didn’t know that 4423 was a medical case code, however. I wonder who the other case codes belong to.

    Sheer speculation: Takome may himself have been one of the earlier coil victims saved by Yasako’s grandfather. He’s suspicious that MegaMass may have had a direct role in his doctor’s death, and has been trying to use Isako’s imago ability to try to track down his old doctor in the Coil Domain. Note that he didn’t even know about Yasako before this episode; if he had, he probably would have tried to work through her also, or instead. I’m guessing he’ll join the rest of the gang now, and the common enemy will be MegaMass.

    Given that Yasuko’s father, grandfather, uncles, and various other older family members have MegaMass connections, she could probably pick up a lot of information by just asking. But it’s perfectly believable that it doesn’t occur to her.

    - really need to tell me where you download this series (or do you directly get it from the corp?)

  5. r3dking says:

    wao points out that the very first episode shows the 4423 medical code on the folder in the background, in the scene where Yasako first opens the package from her grandfather containing the Dennou glasses. So it’s like a good mystery story! They introduce the necessary clues early on, before you know to look for them. Now I have to go back and re-watch all the earlier episodes to see what else they may have left a clue for.

    The biggest mystery for me is Isako’s background. Where did she learn to code? Where did she get her non-standard pets? Is she related to Yasako through some family connection, such that she might have got a gift from Yasako’s grandfather also?

  6. Sandor Arbitrary Intelligence says:

    The very first series indeed shows many things, Nekome and Tamako appear as well =)

    As far as I got it, Densuke and Isako’s Mojos are mentioned as “Coils life” and are probably a kind of real artificial life (unlike normal, simulated pets – automatons and petmatons) based on the same coil effect.

    There was another name mentioned in the argument between Takeru and Nekome (even more siblings? Don’t tell me Isako will be related to someone too, she’s supposed ot be the lonely char here!) of someone who seems to be in control of those low-level format black automatons >_> Man, theyre scary. And their ability to transfer physical pain sensation back to a target’s via their imago doesn’t look like a space maintenance function, more like asassianation utility. Anyway, Megamass seems to be quite a shady illuminati-type organisation.

  7. hssc says:

    So… Isako has brother-complex, huh?

    My respect for her is now transforming into sappy sympathy… she needs to shape up again

    @Emma; better late than never. We all enjoyed some stuff in our youth that were of questionable quality. Keep in mind that one can be intellectual and still enjoy some dumb fun action flicks, since enjoyment of is not mutually exclusive.

    Y’know sometimes I hate looking back on some of the sheer shit I enjoyed when I was younger, remembering that I saw every resident evil movie, doom, both alien vs predator movies and at a time enjoyed them and worse still watched almost all of those parody films and alien sequels, knowing that for a long long time I hadn’t seen most films made before 2006.

    @Bam: I’ve yet to see the third one but its seen as a mix of the first two.
    I’d say watch the first, 80s black and white one it has a more surreal arthouse, nightmare fuel, surrealist feel. The second one is more of a ultraviolent action film.

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 16

So at the start of this episode featured the big moment of Gilgamesh ripping out Illya’s heart and it was surprisingly underwhelming. It is true that in context his makes more sense and fits his character better. But it is little disappointing. Strangely this wasn’t how it was in the visual novel and this is […]

The word that encompasses this episode in a nutshell would be brutal. Whether you love her or hate her, I say few would believe that Illya deserved this fate. The tragedy is ever more pungent if you know the full details of her past. Anime only viewers may not get the most out of this […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 14

As a reader of the Fate/stay night visual novel I can confirm that the majority of this episode was anime original content. However instead of being about castors history like I thought, it’s of his backstory with her first master. In all honestly making the episode be about her history with Jason would have been […]

Death Parade Review – 65/100

Death Parade – 12

So this is the end of Death Parade. Or at least this is the end of what may be it’s first and last season. The ongoing plot didn’t so much as tie itself up but rather fizzle out. Leaving a second season to tie up loose ends. A second season that may never come. I […]

Parasyte The Maxim Review-82.5/100

Parasyte, along with Gugure Kokkuri-San, are the only two shows from the last season that I’ve actually finished, and that’s actually saying quite a lot–seeing as how I haven’t been watching (much less blogging) anime at all this past season. However, I figured I should at least write a final review for Parasyte, just because […]

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero.

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Silver Spoon Review – 86/100

When Noitamina started airing two series per season, it was amazing.

Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]
