Isshin seems to be back in good graces with everyone by treating them to a free meal. But I’m sure he has an ulterior motive. Sure enough, Isshin has gotten a lead on more ruins. So, now it’s a free trip to the hot springs. And you just know he’s going to betray everyone again. Juugo tries to get another hint from Nanana, but saying that she doesn’t want to spoil him, she refuses. However, perhaps she did slip him a tiny hint, when she told him that there weren’t any hot springs when she was there.
Yukihime asks to meet with Juugo, and he knows she’s after something too, especially when she tries to seduce him. Yukihime asks when he’ll be returning to Matsuri, and Juugo tells her that his isn’t. So, she withholds his allowance. Juugo still keeps refusing to go back, so Yukihime tries something else. She asks what she is to him and when he tells her that she’s like an older sister, she leaves, telling Juugo that she never wants to see him again.
Juugo returns to his apartment, finding it full of people. He may not be able to keep Nanana in the life she’s grown accustomed to, but he’ll find a way. He still needs to find her killer. Time for a secret part-time job! He ends up at the “Guild” – a secret part-time job center at school. Funny that there is a listing for Shiki at the apartment complex. She could have just offered him that job when he said he was low on funds. There is a rather interesting job listed next to that one that seems to interest Juugo.
And of course he runs into a disguised Tensai at the Guild. She’s there looking for cases. It looks like Juugo takes the transport job and ends up meeting Todomatsu. The Ninth District turns out to be a dangerous place. Juugo didn’t even know there was a lawless place like that on the island. Todomatsu lets Juugo know the jewel he recently gave them was a fake and that Juugo’s father was not pleased. But Yukihime stuck up for him. That really touched Juugo.
I’ve no idea what Juugo is supposed to be transporting, but when he shows it to Todomatsu, he wants nothing to do with it. Todomatsu goes with Juugo to make the delivery, but then runs away, and Juugo is caught. A guy named Tetsu takes Juugo to someone named “Sister”. Juugo is surprised that this cute little girl is his employer. But she isn’t. Yun is only there to tell him to wait for Sister.
While he waits, Juugo sees a strange arrow in her collection of items. When Sister does show up, she’s a bit on the scary side. She asks Juugo if he’s looked in the case and he says that he hasn’t. She then asks him if he knows about Nanana’s Collection and he tells her that he hasn’t. Sister opens the display case and removes the arrow as she tells Juugo a bit about Nanana’s Collection. She tells him that it’s the “Arrow of Heaven’s Will” and only points to the truth, piercing the hearts of liars.
As Sister raises the arrow, Juugo runs and hides behind the sofa. That tells Sister all she needs to know and she laughs. Juugo tries to convince her that he’s just a coward. It turns out that the item Juugo just delivered was flour. But it’s a very special flour and Sister has caught Juugo in his lies. One, when he said he didn’t know about Nanana’s Collection and two when he said he didn’t look in the case. But a raid saves Juugo.
Sister tells Tetsu to get Juugo out the back and invites Juugo to come back sometime for cake. Then she takes the case and runs off. Juugo makes it home safely, but realizes he never got paid. All that for nothing! Nanana tells him to go back the following day, but I don’t think Juugo is interested. And he still doesn’t have enough money for the utility bill. So, what now?
