  • I believe this is one of the best episodes in the series. Reveals everyone\'s true feelings that they held back deep in their hearts.

    Sister child has Mai in a dream state. The images reveal what Mai truely wants in her life. Everything is peaceful and happy in her dreams how she lives a simple life as a high school student with no complications. As Sister child was about to consume Mai, Tate comes to the rescue. Wataru tries to force Sister to use Vlas to get rid of the greatest obstacle; Mai\'s child, kagutsuki. Sister ends up using Vlas\'s power on wataru and makes vlas consume them both.

    Nao starts to reveal her dark past to Natsuki about her mother. This explains why Nao uses her child's power against only men. Shezuru comes to save Natsuki and end up destroying Nao\'s child. Nagi reveals to shinho that she possess the dark child the black crow. It is shinho\'s sub-conscious that controls her other half. Finally shinho embraces her powers and goes after Mai.

    Mai and Shinho start fighting, but Mai doesnt have the courage to finish off Shinho\'s child. If either of their childs die, so does Tate because he is important to both of them. Mikoto ends up joining the battle and finishes off shinhos child in order to save Mai.

    This is by far one of the depressing episodes in the serious because Tate dies without knowing how Mai truely feels about him. Neither of them ever told each other they were in love with one another. I admit I got teary when Tate dies slowly and how Mai kisses him as he vanishes. This brought tears to Natsuki as well because Mai has ended up losing everything in her life.moreless
