Ran and Midori go back in time to try and find Rui and help him out of the situation heâ€™s found himself in.
I thought this episode was pretty good. It really started out as one of the more interesting problems and situations theyâ€™ve run into, and although it didnâ€™t seem to end on quite as high of a note, it was till pretty interesting. At least time traveling somewhere was a new direction for them, as it added many interesting things they havenâ€™t done yet. However it just feels that they didnâ€™t make as much out of this situation as they could have, still, not a bad episode by any means.
Iâ€™m actually a b it disappointed in the focus they gave Rui. Although it seemed like this would be the perfect opportunity to explain what exactly is special with Rui, they didnâ€™t. Although he was the one first taken back, and only one to see the monster before the big burst of power, that still didnâ€™t really mean much. They pretended like it never happened almost, and that it was nothing special. They didnâ€™t at all link it to the fact he was introduced in the very first episode has having some strange, but different power from Ran and Midori. Ruiâ€™s part could almost have been played by anyone without powers and just explain him seeing the monster because he was the random person the comb picked. I really wish they would give Rui more focus, as so far heâ€™s the closest thing the series has to an overall encompassing plot.
