Episode 10 –
[details=spoiler]Alice is definitely an odd one. I haven’t quite figured her out yet.
Kirika admits to being blackmailed. And her curse tortures her – sometimes every day. How horrible! But she shares this with Haruaki, hoping he doesn’t hate her for it. Haruaki just says that she is kind to suffer this way so others won’t get hurt. Then Haruaki asks Kirika to give him Kurokawa Karen. I think he’d like to save her all that pain, but Kirika refuses, saying that is her strength. Haruaki seems to understand and doesn’t push the issue, but leaves her to rest.
Now for Kuroe! Fear catches her doing something to her client’s cut hair. But what? Fear thinks that the victims of the serial killer were also customers of the beauty parlor. And it’s later proven to be so. Does this mean that cute little Kuroe is the killer or is she somehow manipulating Alice? I hope it’s just coincidence! [/details]
Episode 11 –
[details=spoiler]Kuroe is confronted with Fear’s suspicions and volunteers to be confined. But it turns out that Kuroe eats the hair in mourning and it revitalizes her. Alice shows up again and manages to take Haruaki, Kirika and Kuroe as hostages this time, just to use as leverage, so that Fear will join the Vivolio Families. And of course what they stand for is just plain wrong.
Himura shows up as Kirika’s “partner” and torments the hostages before freeing only Kirika and taking her away. I liked the reference to the Man in the Iron Mask bit. It also turns out that Alice is the head of the Vivolio Families and is truly insane. And the serial killer’s victims were people that were only too happy to die.
An injured Kirika returns to Fear and Konoha to help save the others. I hope that Himura was killed in the accident, but I doubt it. Ones like him don’t die easily. Kirika confesses everything to Fear and Konoha and even tells Fear about Kuroe. Fear then feels bad about suspecting her and promises to bring everyone home. I hope she can!
Fear is really coming along nicely too. I’m sure she’ll be able to break her curse soon. And that Kuroe is such a little pervert! I adore her![/details]
