Episode 6 –
[details=spoiler]As they await the third Septentrion, Otome asks Hibiki why he’s with the rebels and he tells her that he wants to protect the people – Hotsuin has caused too many deaths with his orders. Otome tells him that Hotsuin probably chose the path with the least amount of deaths, but Hibiki’s heart just can’t accept that.
Daichi and Nitta are reunited with Hibiki. They scold him for leaving them behind and tell him about the dead face clip. He finds out too that there are there without JP’s permission. They also expect Hibiki to return with them to Tokyo. He explains why he can’t go back with them His friends are really worried about the dead face clip and elect to remain with him to try and protect him. At least his hood with those silly rabbit ears finally falls off his head! LOL
Two more Summoners, Airi and Jungo, show up at the Nagoya Base to take it back. Airi’s demon made me laugh – it looks like Puss in Boots! Jungo’s demon is also a cat. The cats may be small, but they sure are strong! Ronaldo appears and stops the fight, telling his men to pull back. Ronaldo tries to turn these two to his side as well, by Airi attacks him instead. The fight ceases with the manifestation of a Septentrion – and it’s appearing inside the base! Ronaldo had said that Hotsuin had a “contract” with the Septenrions, so I wonder if this is Hotsuin’s doing.
The Septentrion appears right in the command center! Ronaldo orders the non-fighters to the shelters and informs Airi and Jungo that they will be fighting with him. Airi puts up a protest, but Jungo reminds her that there is a common enemy in the Septentrion. Airi is a bit of a hot head but she’s a good fighter. However, between Ronaldo, Joe, Airi and Jungo – all very powerful Summoners – they haven’t damaged the Septentrion at all.
The monster lets off a whopper of an electrical attack, causing the Avatars to disappear and the lights to go out. Another such attack will destroy Nagoya, but Hibiki shows up and has his Sazuku attack. Nitta joins him with her Kikuri-Hime and Daichi is there as well with his weak demons. Otome joins them with her Sarasvati and the battle is about to be won. However, the Septentrion gains more power and splits! Another attack from the monster and Sazuku and Kikuri-Hime are taken out. Things are beginning to look like the dead face clip and Nitta tells Hibiki to run.
He does run, but towards the monster! Hibiki summons his Byakko. Another blast from the monster and Hibiki drops his phone which severs his app. He’s all alone in front of the Septentrion now and it’s preparing to attack again! He’s going to die! At the last possible moment, Hotsuin’s Cerberus appears and attacks the Septentrion. Then Hotsuin himself appears and reveals his true power. He has Cerberus finish the Septentrion. Great, but the bad news is that Nagoya has been retaken by the JP’s – with the same method Ronaldo used!
Hibiki questions Hotsuin’s power, telling him that he could have fought all this time and that no one would have died. But Hotsuin beings up “Judgment Day” and tells Hibiki that defeating the Septentrion will require “pawns” – is this all just a big chess game to him? He tells Hibiki that he is an excellent pawn and Hibiki takes offense at this. Hotsuin just tells him that pawns shouldn’t have emotions. Hotsuin also orders Hibiki back to his side and to follow his orders. And so the tug of war between Ronaldo and Hotsuin begins.
The other Summoners are shocked to learn that Hotsuin wants to rule the world and he doesn’t deny it either, saying that “He who is blessed with strength should become the guide”. Ronaldo’s men appear and train their guns on Hotsuin. Big mistake! Hotsuin summons his Cerberus and Hibiki brings out his Byakko. Hotsuin questions Hibiki and Hibiki tells him that he will not allow him to hurt people. Then Alcor appears near Hibiki, saying that he never thought that the “Sparkling Ones” would fight one another.
Alcor informs Hibiki that Hotsuin came because he saw Hibiki’s dead face clip and that surprises Hibiki. Hotsuin didn’t want Alcor to tell him that. Now Hibiki doesn’t know what to think![/details]
