Episode Summary

Chapter Twelve
Youko decides to go look for Enho. She's bewildered by what could have injured Kei Kei like that. Shoukei discusses with her group about the bad situation of the area. They bring up the idea of a rebellion. It's clear that Shokou must be stopped. Meanwhile Sekki and his group are in the middle of moving locations of their hideout. Suzu and Shoukei end up being sent to the same inn as representatives, exchanging money for toki weapons with their respected groups. The master of the inn prevents them from getting personal with each other. They end up having to stay the night. That night they realize they are both after Shokou and how much they've lost along the way. Suzu begins to cry but Shoukei assures her that Queen Kei would be a good person. Back at Shokou's palace, he describes to Asano how he is protected from being punished by the heavens for his sins. Asano wants to save the queen of Kei, but Shokou forbids it. Youko burst into Sekki and Koshou's new hide out and proves to them that she's after Shoukou as well. They all then seem to have an understanding and agree to take out Shoukou together. Koshou offers Youko a toki weapon, but Youko says her sword will do just fine.moreless

  • While Youko was looking for Enho, Suzu and Shoukei were sent to Rou's house to do some business. They spent a night at Rou's and became friends. After that Youko found Koushou and joined the rebellion.moreless

    The piece were getting together in this episode, two of three important girls in this Arc finally met which means that three of them would finally be together soon. Now we know where Kantai's money and Koushou's weapons came from. Without the guys' realization, it seemed that these two groups had became colleages through the girls. You can see that Shoukei really grows up while she's trying to reassure Suzu that the Empress wasn't a bad person, she became more reasonable, wiser , most of all, she let go of her anger.

    It's quite... ironic that Youko, the Empress, becamed a rebellion herself at the end of this episode. As they intended to take down Gahou and Shouko, it also means that Youko would probably meet Asano again. Now everyone will finally meet! I can't wait to see what will happen next.moreless
  • Just brilliant.

    Youko decides to investigate the disappearance of Enho. She is led to the previous inn that Koushou and Suzu previously worked at, and found out that they moved. Suzu is at an inn, working as a representative for exchanging the goods. Incidentally, Shoukei is representing her group in this trade. The two quickly become friendly, and during the night, they talk about the current matters and their opinions of the people participating in this conspiracy. Suzu was bent on killing Queen Kei for supporting Gahou and Shoukou, but Shoukei opens up her eyes by telling her of the story of her father, King Hou. Suzu doesn't think of Queen Kei as badly anymore. The next night, in Sekki and Koshou's new hideout, Youko appears, labeling them as the prime suspects for the disappearance of Enho. After negotiating and discussing further, Koshou invites Youko in rebelling against Shoukou and Gahou.

    This was such a brilliant episode, that even though I was tired at the time of watching it, just wanting to sleep, it got my eyes glued the entire team. I just simply ignored my tiredness and fully concentrated on this episode, because it was just that amazing. Like the past couple of episodes so far, this one makes me realize something in the past that seems so obvious that should have been realized the first time they happened, like King Hou. I've never thought about King Hou becoming corrupt because no one critized his actions. The fact that Shoukei is a prime example of this just makes it much more intriguing. The author of these novels is just so brilliant. And while the talk about the rebellion between Sekki's group and Youko wasn't really badass--at least compared to most shounens--it was still badass.moreless
