Episode 8 –
[details=spoiler]Higashio insists that the enemy are aliens, but no one believes him. Anna says that they are aliens and the boys suddenly believe her. Shougo asks for more information. Gilbert tells him that the aliens want the Dragon Bone. That doesn’t sit well with Shougo. He has to think about this. People have gotten hurt because of that Dragon Bone.
Anna tells the other that if Shougo stays at the lab, they can protect him. Leonard tells them that the lab is protected by a barrier that repels attacking Bones. I guess the barrier didn’t work. The mysterious men approach the high security area. They quickly take out the guards and gain entry to the elevator with the help of a hostage. However, they are also on camera. When that camera doesn’t respond, the breech is discovered.
Leonard needs Shougo’s help to repair the Dragon Bone. He wants to measure the Bone’s resonance with the adept and would like Shougo to equip a virtual Dragon Bone. However, Shougo refuses. He doesn’t want to be part of this anymore. He doesn’t want people getting hurt anymore. Leonard tells him that he has a duty to fix the Dragon Bone. It got fossilized because of him. Luke offers to go into the simulator with Shougo and will be his opponent. Shougo complies, but as soon as Leonard has the data he needs, Shougo is done with all of this.
As they fight, Luke tells Shougo that the Dragon Bone protects him. But it’s also a responsibility. Shougo brings up people getting hurt again, and Luke tells him that the situation won’t change whether he equips the Bone or not. Luke tells Shougo to equip and Leonard does something that turns Luke into the enemy. The others wonder where Leonard got that card. Luke tells Shougo that the enemy will still come after the Dragon Bone and the Earth will still be in danger. He won’t be protecting anyone by not equipping it.
Shougo finally gets angry enough to attack Luke and Leonard seems pleased with the resonance response. Luke is defeated with a Bone Crush and is fossilized. Thank goodness this is only a simulation! To protect others from getting hurt, Shougo resolves to fight and the simulation continues. But an alarm goes off and Leonard stops the simulation. Somehow an intruder got into the lab! Well, it isn’t as safe as they had thought after all.
The enemy is headed straight for the Bone Repair Facility too. They know exactly where to go. Protection of the Dragon Bone is now a priority. However, the guards are no match for these two guys. Leonard takes the boys to where the Dragon Bone is. Higashio tells Anna how the enemy gained access. It seems odd that they never considered this and prepared for it. The enemy has made it to the Dragon Bone and the boys are there to stop them. But can these guys be stopped?
The boys note that the enemy looks and speaks like humans. They are suddenly surrounded by more armed guards. One man throws a dagger into the wall next to Shougo. Nice message! Stunned, Shougo slides to the floor. The men pull out their Bone cards. A brilliant light is seen and the men transform. Luke activates the Revelation Cocoon and Shougo is left behind. What will he do next?[/details]
