As Takina rejoins the DA, Chisato decides to call it quits. However, Majima shows his true colors, and Yoshi might not be as evil as initially thought. Also, Mika finally comes clean with Chisato.
From seeing Majima take hostage his assistant and Yoshi, I guess he finally regrets giving Majima special abilities. He finds out that Majima wants to expose the DA (Direct Attack) and the Allen Institute and what they do.
Also, Yoshi kind of went against his philosophy as he had his assistant damage Chisato’s heart. Still, this makes him more neutral than evil, as his institute grants special abilities regardless of if the person is good or evil. So, in a way, he is truly neutral to Majima’s chaotic evil. But, does this make Chisato lawful good, then? Even so, Chisato still has a chance to fulfill her duty and kill Majima. It might become possible with the help of some of her friends at Lyco Reco.
With Takina back in the DA, Chisato decides to have Mika close the shop. Mizuki and Kurumi need to find a new place to stay. Even if Chisato wants them to go to another country, there is a good feeling that they didn’t leave Japan. After all, they still have Takina to take Majima down. Also, the DA is kind of after Walnut for hacking their systems, but they don’t know it’s Kurumi that did it.
Still, the patrons didn’t take the news of Lyco Reco’s closing well. I still hope it will reopen if Takina finds a way to rescue Chisato. After all, Mizuki and Kurumi are pinning their hopes on her now.
Even with Takina back in the DA, she is acting a bit feisty. It becomes apparent with the interrogation scene at a prison as Takina wants information from one of Majima’s henchmen. I like how she said she didn’t mind killing the man and getting fired again as she enjoyed life outside. Either way, she is focused on finding Yoshi instead of taking down Majima. She doesn’t know that Majima is taking Yoshi hostage.
As for the Lycoris raid of the ship, it seems that Majima is not there. Only a video feed as he talks to the commander Kusunoki as Majima shares her intention. Yes, not only to expose the DA and eventually the Allen Institute but ensure chaos and anarchy across Japan. He plans to use the Enkuboku. It kind of works, more on that later.
With that, it’s nice that Mika came clean about Chisato and told the truth she hid. He admitted that he couldn’t turn Chisato into a hard-cold killer. Yep, Mika decided to do this to get a promotion. However, Mika couldn’t bring himself to do it, given how much of a precious cinnamon roll Chisato is. Not only that, she looks up to Yoshi as a savior, but he can’t break that.
With that, I can see why he doesn’t feel worthy of Chisato’s forgiveness with his self-interest and lies, even after giving her the special coming-of-age kimono. Thankfully, Chisato already forgave him.
As for the operation, it seems that the DA got caught off guard. It’s thanks to Robota hacking into their systems, allowing Majima to spread his ideology. I can see why he prepared thousands of arms so he could have the citizens become insurrectionists and overwhelm the DA and the Japanese government. It seems that only there are a few victims took up the offer by accident. As expected, the DA is in a challenging position as their organization is exposed, and irreparable harm exists.
With that, Chisato finally heeds the call and gathers the weapons. Hopefully, Kurumi and Mizuki are still there. Perhaps Kurumi can give Robota a taste of his own medicine and fix her wrongs of hacking the DA to save the day. Still, I’m curious if Chisato will finally fulfill her mission not only to save Yoshi but perhaps kill Majima once and for all. It’s like killing two birds with one stone. Eventually, after all, this is done, Chisato and Takina can return to life as it was before, with the former receiving a new heart.
