Episode 9: Kuraki vs Higashi … Mozu’s counterattack … Order is lost (Airs 5 June)

Kuraki, who does not understand the reason why Chihiro had activated the bomb, visits the site of the bomb explosion and senses the presence of someone in the shadows. The person moves as if luring Kuraki. He gives chase and it is Higashi who awaits him when he reaches.

      I’m barely hanging in there! Mozu has been a letdown for me in terms of storyline and character development. I’ve lost interest in it. So I’m just doing previews and digests to finish what I began.
