Episode 8 –
[details=spoiler]Rentaro and Kisara end up being teachers for the Cursed Children at a makeshift elementary school outside of the city. How did they ever get roped into that? LOL The little girls are very inquisitive about the personal lives of their new teachers. I only hope they’re that enthusiastic when it comes to actual lessons!
The girls are delighted when Seitenshi visits the school on its first day. But she also has another reason for coming. A Monolith has been destroyed by a Stage Four called an Aldebaran that uses Varanium corroding fluid. Not good since the Monoliths are made of Varanium. Another Monolith is being built to replace the destroyed one, but the Gastrea will overwhelm Tokyo before it can be completed.
Seitenshi is controlling the information that goes out to the public, but once the Monolith turns white, people will know something is wrong. Seitenshi also tells them that around two thousand Gastrea are already gathering around the Monolith, waiting for it to fall. They are being commanded by the Aldebaran. But Rentaro wants to know how a Stage Four got past the Monolith’s magnetic field. That field should repel Gastrea up to a Stage Five. There’s no information on that yet.
Seitenshi wants Rentaro to form an “adjuvant” and work with the JASDF. She has named him team leader and wants him to fight. His job will be to fight the Gastrea and protect Tokyo while the new Monolith is completed. Those three days are going to be an absolute hell! Rentaro goes home to find two magical girls in the form of Enju and Tina. Very cute. Tina has made pizza, but it’s all she can make. At least it’s wonderful pizza.
That night as Enju sleeps, Tina talks with Rentaro and thanks him for saving her and giving her a new life. She even considers him her big brother now. Tina instinctively knows that something is bothering Rentaro and he tells her about the Monolith. She is ready to fight with him. Rentaro tells Tina a little about himself, Kisara, and Enju. Later, Rentaro ends up sandwiched between two sleeping girls. Looks like he won’t be getting much sleep. LOL
The next morning, Kisara comes to pick up Tina and from the way Tina wakes up and the things she says, it sounds like Rentaro had a very interesting night. Rentaro tries to warn her about what she’s saying, but it’s too late. Enju is in shock and Kisara pulls out her phone to call the police. Rentaro tries to explain, but it just makes things worse, especially when Tina stands up and she isn’t wearing much. Poor pedophile Rentaro! LOL
A news report claims that the leader of the group that wants to expel Cursed Children has been murdered by a Cursed Child. This is going to have an adverse effect on the law of equality that Seitenshi is advocating. Rentaro takes Tina with him to recruit members for his team. Tina considers it a date with her big brother. And they do have fun together.
As they walk along, Tina hears a beautiful song. They see a blind Cursed Child singing. Rentaro asks her about her eyes, saying that Cursed Children are immune to disease. The girl removes her blindfold and tells them that she poured lead into her eyes, because her mother hated her red eyes. This is too sad. Rentaro is just disgusted and angry. Tina is just shocked. The girl reaches out and touches Tina’s face. She can tell that Tina is a Cursed Child as well.
The little girl isn’t treated well, and Rentaro tells her not to come there for a few days, but the girl is supporting her sister. Rentaro gives her money and makes her promise to stay away. Rentaro and Tina leave and the child hears a protest going on regarding the Gastrea and the Cursed Children. In addition, Seitenshi’s proposed law has been rejected.
Rentaro begins his recruitment. He ends up at Katagiri’s place, and Katagiri knows exactly why he’s there and the fact that everyone else has turned him down. Once Katagiri and Yuzuki hear the rest of what they didn’t know, Katagiri also turns Rentaro down. Rentaro tells them that Tokyo is about to be destroyed and they will die. Well, if Rentaro wants him to face Aldebaran, Katagiri wants to know what he gets out of it. He doesn’t like what Rentaro is offering either, and even ends up laughing.
Well, Katagiri won’t work for anyone weaker than him, so it looks like Rentaro and Tina will have to fight to get his help. Rentaro apologizes to Tina for having to make her a part of this. But she intends to win regardless. However, Katagiri and Yuzuki have a few tricks and it’s going to be hard for Rentaro and Tina to win. Even with his tricks, Rentaro defeats Katagiri and the guys watch the girls fight. Katagiri lends Rentaro his sunglasses so he can see all of Yuzuki’s spider threads surrounding Tina. At the last second, Tina uses those threads to trap Yuzuki. And it’s a win for Tina! Tina makes a new friend and the Katagiri team joins Rentaro. But he’s still going to need many more pairs. And the Monolith is starting to turn white![/details]
