Takuya is back from another parallel world and now more determined than ever to find out Ryuuzouji’s secret, but he’ll need to find a way to break his hypnosis first.
The Secret Under the White Coat
Having returned back to the original reset point, Takuya calls Mitsuki and is relieved to hear that she is all right. The next morning he tries to find Eriko and a way to break Ryuuzouji’s hypnosis of Mitsuki. When he enters the nurse’s office, there’s no sign of Eriko, just her clothes…
A strange sound leads Takuya to look under the bed where he finds Eriko sleeping on the floor. She mistakes him for someone called Abel and pulls him under with her, before waking up to find her leg wrapped around Takuya. Eriko’s distressed shriek brings Mio and Yuuki running. Next thing you know, they’re all watching a video about the mysterious curse.
Takuya tries to spy on Ryuuzouji and discovers that Eriko had the same idea. They squeeze into a tiny closet together and witness Ryuuzouji’s strange hypnosis, which is not to be watched by anyone with motion-sickness… Later, Eriko and Takuya go to Ryuuzouji’s house where they find his mother dead in a barn. Then a car screeches away and crashes into a post, leaving Mitsuki badly injured.
I’m so glad that we’re finally getting to Eriko’s arc and not just because she is the best girl in the series. There’ve been a lot of subtle questions and mysteries surrounding Eriko so it’s nice to finally start to get to the bottom of them. This is just the first episode in the arc so there’s more to come, but it’s been very interesting so far and she has only gotten cooler. Eriko wins the series, no doubts from me.
Eriko Takeda – The Teacher!
