This episode wasn’t good for anything but a quick laugh and another look at Jun’s power. Apparently Jun’s power expands beyond sensing personas like I first thought. He ca, I guess, intercept radio waves and overhear whispers or something. Because when Shin, Jun, and that afro guy were all at an event in the park honoring the chief for a day, Jun overheard the police talking about the kidnapping trade off that would be going on under the wraps. The story was that two kids were kidnapped and the ransom trade off was to be done, in secret, at this event for the cheif for the day, but the person who was supposed to be chief for the day was unable to come. Thus there was a sudden emphasis on continuing the event as planned. So the police force stumble across Megumi, who was returning a lost wallet, and Kanaru, who was lost in the city. The same two girls that were in the karaoke incident. What was peculiar about Kanaru was that she was the girl who is immune to the persona invoking drugs or whatever and the reason she was lost is because she blanked out and came too in a part of the city she wasn’t so familiar with. This made me raise an eyebrow, but I am not sure what to expect of it. The police were unsure about letting them take the place as cheif for the day, but decided to anyways because of their vehemence against kidnapping. When the two are on the stage the detective that was on the case of the karaoke incident said they’d probably be fine and it flashed a shot of the karaoke room covered in blood. These two (or one of the two) have a special power.
That pretty much paints the story of the episode and shows Jun’s power, but the good laugh involved Ryou in a bear outfit. Why was he in a bear outfit? Because he’s a good person. I’ll get to the in depth reason. Ryou was called out because of a Reverse during the finding a new chief for the day problem, but when he got there it was just a drunkard. How somebody can confuse drunkenness with a Reverse I don’t really know. Then again I don’t really know what happens in a Reverse either. Well because of the false call Ryou was in the right place at the right time. He sees a bear (costume) giving out balloons. The bear collapses so Ryou walks over out of concern and finds out that the man is hungry. So Ryou goes to get him some food and by the time he gets back the bear costume is empty. Apparently the man was the criminal that fought Ryou in an earlier episode; the same guy that couldn’t pull out his persona if I’m not mistaken. It seems odd to him, but he has to get back to work. That is, until he sees a child crying because the bear isn’t around to give him a balloon. And what do we think Ryou does? dun da da da! Ryou becomes the hero for the boy and gives him a balloon in the bear costume. Unfortunately this also makes it to wear he isn’t there for the kidnapping trade off at the chief for the day event, but it all works out. Two guys come up to get the boys. Who’d have guessed that these boys where the very same that are a part of this whole kidnapping fiasco. Of course with Ryou there they are saved in the end. But what’s really funny is that Ryou doesn’t take credit for the save as himself and he returns to the park to continue handing out his remaining balloons.
It shows a flashback of young Ryou, lil’ Shin, and their mother pushing baby Jun and Yuki in a stroller. Shin has a light blue balloon and ends up losing it, but Ryou consoles him. When Ryou comes to from his memories there stands Shin asking for a light blue balloon from his older brother in the bear costume. This was a touching moment because it shows that Ryou still cares for his little brother. The episode ends with Shin and his friends and lil brother walking off. They wonder what the real chief does when somebody is chief for the day. Jun looks back at the bear. Chances are this is another look at Jun’s power of perception because he probably knew it was Ryou.
