  • Honestly, what else can I say besides "Another great installment"? They're all great installments!

    9.0
    Youko is rather exhausted and depressed at the decisions she has to make. What she fears the most is displeasing the others around her, so she goes with the safest path that can bring smiles upon everyone. Meanwhile, Suzu's master, Riyou, continues to torment her by telling her how she met with Queen Kei, who is also a kaikyaku, but flourished into something rather than nothing. Suzu is deeply offended, and runs away. But within her mind, she's rather happy and wants to meet with this woman. Shoukei, while it seems like she's also having a good time, makes the mistake of revealing her identity to Gobo, her guardian. No one will forget the sins her father commited, and have blamed all of this on Shoukei. Youko, with a rather commanding voice, decides to strip Koukan of his province.



    More ranting on how amazed at how this episode can fit three different stories so perfectly! Seriously, all the stories are just amazing, and emotions are immediately being inflicted upon the characters, especially Shoukei and Suzu. It's heartbreaking to see Suzu getting treated so poorly, as well as Shoukei, who's being punished for something she wasn't really responsible for. Even though the citizens suffered through a horrible event from their king, more hate is building up for them than any sort of pity.moreless
