Episode Summary

Ikari and Maniwa are receive word of Taeko's attack from the previous episode. Masami is devastated by Taeko's amnesia as Ikari looks from the sideline since it happened in a different district. Ikari and Maniwa interrogate Kozuka again to make him confess that he is merely a copycat. They manage to get out of him that he only attacked Usshi and Hirukawa but Ikari tries to get a full confession. However, Maniwa soon discovers another connection between victim; they all were under some kind of stress and were relieved after the attack. But, he soon figures out that Taeko was also emotionally stressed and finds out that Taeko was attacked about the same time that Tsukiko fainted, meaning that Lil' Slugger can be nowhere and everywhere. He tells Ikari but gives him an application for leave and tells him to take a break. However, Maniwa still pushes and soon realizes that the next target is Kozuka.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Episode Title Appearance: In the "radio room", it shows a monitor for a moment with a MHz gauge.

    • Episode Title: MHz
      'MHz' is the abbreviation of 'megahertz', or one million cycles per second. It is used especially as a radio-frequency unit, which fits in well with the episode as there is a intermittent sound of a radio signal's white noise throughout the episode.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Prophetic Vision
      To begin with... If you strain your ears, the words of the sage will reach you... Somewhere between intuition and science. If you look around, tracing the fox's path back and forth... It's an ocean of cluster-amaryllises. Welcome, master detective. Here's some warm hospitality. Well...

    • It wasn't sucide, Kozaka was murdered. He's one person yet he's not. He can appear infront of anyone whose been driven into a corner with nowhere to go. Anytime and anywhere. He's still at large. Lil slugger is still out there on the loose.

  • NOTES (4)

    • The original Japanese broadcast was on March 22, 2004.

    • This is the first time Lil Slugger kills someone.

    • Maniwa discovers a link between the victims- they were all backing into a corner with no where else to go

      At the hospital, as Maniwa looks at the old man, the old man's reflection and his become the same. It's basically a future echo of Maniwa's appearence in the final scene of the final episode.

      Kozuka is killed by Li'l Slugger
      Before finding Kozuka's body, both decetives see Li'l Slugger, but he skates away beofre they can catch him, but as Maniwa chases him, he runs into a wall- another dead end

      It appeared as though Li'l Slugger skated through a solid wall, and yet the old man in maniwa's dream did the same thing

      Both Ikari and Maniwa are fired for their suspect being murdered on their watch and their inability to catch the real Lil' Slugger.

    • Starting with this episode, words written in Japanese characters are captioned with English subtitles.
