  • Time to bring out the big guns.

    You'd think that with such a dangerous creature on the loose, those lab coats would have sent out their ace in the hole earlier. You're trying to tell me that they've waited this long to bring forth #35? Ridiculous. But at least it promises a fast-paced ending.

    The backstory of Kurama revealed in this episode was extremely informative, but still left holes in the viewer's knowledge. Granted, this information is sure to come in the next few episodes, but c'mon, we've waited long enough. I've got the strongest feeling now that Nana really is Kurama's daughter, and that's why he's so indebted to the director. Good motivation. 9.5/10.moreless

  • NOTES (2)


    • Prison:
      The prison in which they keep Number 35, and which we can see in the end is very similar to the one in which they keep Akira in the famous anime Akira.

    • Yuka: N/A
      When Yuka is talking about moving to an Island she is refering to the anime series Sister Princess, in which a man is living on an island with 12 little sisters.
