The killer invites Saikawa and Moe for a conversation inside the virtual reality. As the police eavesdrop, Saikawa explains how he found out the truth behind the murder, while Moe desperately attempts to confirm the killer’s motive.
Moe attempts to find out who talked to her in the virtual reality while Saikawa struggles to commit to his promise of keeping Shiki’s death a secret. When the police arrives, however, all the puzzle pieces start falling into place.
We’re halfway through the Fall season, somewhat, maybe, so we’ve heard the theme songs of this quarter’s anime enough to decide which one we like the most.
Saikawa talks to Shiki’s sister in hilariously terrible Engrish for ten minutes straight while Moe goes on a psychedelic lesbian dream adventure in her bikini.
Terrified by the remembrance of Shiki’s words, Moe lashes out at Saikawa when he decides to abandon the investigation. Meanwhile, Yamase attempts to salvage the lab’s reputation and asks Saikawa to remain quiet about the murders for now.
Following another grisly murder, Saikawa and Moe start to look for clues in Shiki’s surprisingly clean chambers. Also, robots!
Isolated from the outside world by a network error, Saikawa and Moe attempt to figure out how the murderer was able to enter Shiki’s chambers. Meanwhile, the lab director arrives on the island, accompanied by Shiki’s younger sister.
As soon as Saikawa and his students arrive on the island, Moe sets out to explore the Magata laboratory and meet Shiki. However, the programming prodigy hasn’t had any physical contact with anyone in fifteen years — and she hasn’t given a sign of life in days.
Professor Sohei Saikawa is planning an outing with the other members of his research lab. Moe Nishinosono, the daughter of his mentor, presents him with the idea to visit Shiki Magata, a mysterious programming genius who has gone into exile after being accused of murdering her parents. That’s all that happens, really. But that’s okay.
Like the changing of the leaves the Fall anime season brings a change in source materials, with the latest crop of shows full of light novel adaptations and anime originals. In grand Glorio Blog tradition, I’m in charge of the second part, which features the anticipated One Punch Man, the not-so-glorious return of Glorio Blog dark horse Garo and noitaminA’s umpteenth attempt at winning back people with actual standards. Furthermore, there’s girls being flirty with girls, guys being flirty with guys, girls being flirty with a guy with no personality and a guy pretending he flirts with guys because he’s not allowed to flirt with girls. Anime sure is the best, isn’t it?
