Arisu takes one more Alice-*nouryoukusha* down and Aruto copies her story, while being watched by a mysterious girl.Later Aruto is coming back from getting some groceries when he decides to take a shortcut and finds himself suddenly in the rain. He runs to a nearby house and the occupant invites him in to take shelter. Inside, she addresses him as Takion and asks him to tell her stories, which he gladly obliges.
Soon, he’s going to Delila’s, her name, place about everyday, making Kiraha and Arisu jealous. There’s also an obvious change in him too, as he seems to have the life force sucked out of him. Kirika realises this and decides to tell it to Arisu and Kiraha what’s happening. It seems Delila’s place is a special Melway space and Aruto is being sucked into it. As attempts to stop Aruto to go there fail, they all decide to investigate and find out that Delila has died a long time ago. Breaking into her room using their powers, they face off Delila and find that she’s a powerful opponent. She reveals that she was once Takion’s girlfriend but one day, he disappeared without a trace and since then, she has been waiting for his return, but to no avail. Finally, Arisu, Kira and Kirika defeat her and unlock her heart to reveal her story. Aruto promises to keep her story in his heart and she fades away after attempting to kiss Aruto.
Hmm.. seems like that Takion guy’s a bit of a bastard, but nothing really much has been revealed. Art and animation were quite OK this episode, but the story and development is leaving me wondering should I be continuing on this series. I’d like to see more Kira,Kisa and Arisu action :). I’ll see how this goes one for 1 or 2 more episodes. Enjoy the caps.
