Thoughts: Some in the cult want to get rid of Makina
Overall Rating: 8
Oori is training to become a contracted priest in order to save Makina. His training consists of catching a rabbit at this point. The purpose is to help him sense the bond he shares with his own shikabane hime. The thing I didn’t like was when he bumped into another shikabane hime and grabbed her boobs by accident. It appears that her contracted priest contracted her while she was on her way to Akihabara, which would explain her cosplay outfit.
I really am interested in what Hokuto actually is. She’s obviously not a normal corpse. I don’t know how she became so powerful and what keeps her around the other corpses. It could be that they messed with her originally or something after she turned into a corpse. Anyways, we learn what most of their goals are this episode at least. I just wonder why they chose Makina to turn into a corpse.
We later see that Makina is drawing evil spirits, since her rune is rotting after Keisei’s death. She didn’t want to forget about Keisei and kept his rune, instead of just accepting Oori’s rune. This episode was a bit of a disappointment since it was more slow than you’d expect. It was just getting viewers ready for the new season in a sense I guess.
