Keita is kidnapped by a Motosumitami and is used as bait for Kuro.
The one thing I thought when watching this episode was how screwed Keita is. They had hinted several times throughout this series that there is something about Keita that is special. That loli mentioned it and they kept hinting at something, but I assumed it was something along the lines of him being special in a good way; however it seems heâ€™s special because heâ€™s so damn weak and is in a position that will drain power from him. Seeing what happened to the other guy and how much fighting the two of them have done already, Keita is absolutely screwed. This isnâ€™t something they can really overcome either, being a substitute isnâ€™t something you can train to get rid of or anything; he just has this huge defect that canâ€™t be fixed. So even if Kuro and Keita become more powerful, which they are going to have to seeing how much they get their ass kicked at this level, getting more powerful would be even MORE of a drain on Keita, screwing him over even more. Iâ€™m interested to see how theyâ€™ll handle this problem, as right now itâ€™s the biggest obstacle theyâ€™ve come across.
I did like Mikamiâ€™s story. It was interesting to see other Mototsumitami (Iâ€™m just going to call them Motos because my god thatâ€™s hard to spell out from memory and pronouncing it) Although itâ€™s doubtful if sheâ€™ll have another important part in this series, seeing her be in that situation which was effectively the exact same situation that Kuro and Keita re in, just ten years difference, was neat. The comment about needing to trust each other was eerily important, but considering this revelation Keita has just learned of that might come kind of hard.
