  • "I am going to pursue the mystery of the Blade Children" -Kiyotaka Narumi

    10
    "I am going to pursue the mystery of the Blade Children..." Those were Kiyotaka Narumi's last words to his younger brother Ayumu before he suddenly disappeared. Two years later, Ayumu, who is now 16, and his sister Madoka are trying to figure out who the Blade Children are, and where Kiyotaka is. One day, while Ayumu is napping on the roof as he always does, he hears a scream, and runs to the balcony where he sees a young girl falling from the roof. She crashes onto a delivery truck below, and is unconcious. The girl's name is Sayako Shiranagatani, and she is one of the Blade Children. Sonobe, the teacher who finds Sayako, calls an ambulance and is quick to accuse Ayumu of pushing the girl. Madoka Narumi, a detective, arrives on the scene and is surprised to hear that her brother is a suspect. The chipper school reporter, Hiyono Yuizaki, is quick to question everyone and everything. Later, she befriends Ayumu and tries to help him catch the real culprit. In the end, it turns out to be Sonobe, who made her fall by switching Sayako's glasses with ones that made her vision weird, and she fell. Luckily, the truck broke her fall, and she is recovering. However, when Sonobe tries to make a run for it, he is pushed down a flight of stairs, and ends up in a coma.moreless

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (Japanese version)
      Ayumu: (answering telephone) Yes. This is Narumi residence. Oh, is that you, brother?
      Kiyotaka: Regarding the mystery of the Blade Children...
      Ayumu: Yes?
      Kiyotaka: "Until the unseen truth is in my hands". Please pass that on to Madoka as well.
      Ayumu: What was that about? (hangs up telephone)

    • Ayumu: The melody of logic always plays the notes of truth, Professor... That's right, the person who did all of this... It was you.
      Hiyono: I was wrong about him. This Ayumu kid is really something else!
      Sonobe: (laughing) My young friend... The culprit was unlucky in a third way as well... He crossed the path of one heck of a detective... Kiyotaka Narumi's baby brother.

    • Ayumu: You're dead set on making me out to be the bad guy here.
      Sonobe: Sorry you feel that way, son. I just told it like I saw it.
      Ayumu: Then I'll do the same. And soon, everyone will know about you. I will figure out what kind of trick you pulled yesterday.

    • Hiyono: Care to explain this exciting new development in the story Ayumu?
      Ayumu: I don't have to explain anything to you...(gasps)
      Hiyono: But you look like you have something more to say.
      Ayumu: Yeah, who are you anyway?
      Hiyono: I am a sophomore at Tsukiomi Academy, three-nine grade point average, and head of the school newspaper... Hiyono Yuizaki!
      Madoka: Enough young lady. It's my job to question the witnesses here, not yours.

    • Ayumu: Great, over slept again. I almost forgot today was the day. Two years ago today my brother, Kiyotaka, disappeared. 'I'm going to pursue the mystery of the Blade Children,' he said. And with those words, he vanished without a trace.

    • Sonobe: Did you do this?! Did you push her off there!?

    • Ayumu: Hello? Talk about dangerous. The guardrail's missing.

  • NOTES (4)

    • In the manga, a girl named Kana Munemiya was pushed from the roof instead of Sayako Shiranagatani, and it was another high school girl, Mizue Nohara, not Sonobe, who played the trick with the eyeglasses on her as well.

    • Original Japanese Title: Spiral of Fate

    • Following each episode of Spiral is a segment called Hiyono's Useful News Report where school journalist Hiyono speaks in chibi or puppet form.
