We, once again, get to see Jun in action. This whole episode revolves around a new transfer student named Mayuri. She has a past with Kanaru and both Shin and Jun feel they have met her before. We find out that Kanaru likes Shin and Takuro likes Megumi. Megumi kind of displays feelings towards Takuro and Shin returns them a bit to Kanaru, but we can’t tell if the two actually return the feelings yet.
With the coming of the Mayuri, strange things that happening around the school. Tree limbs and metal bars twist like springs and solid objects slide through each other and stay in put. People link these occurrences to Mayuri or possibly to an unknown ghost without any evidence, but Shin and Jun determine that it might be a persona rather than a ghost. So the group sneaks into school after hours to scout it out. Things start happening and in the confusion they see Mayuri coughing on the floor. Without question they tend to her, but Jun has gone to deal with other matters.
He steps outside to the tree where the signs of the mystery first appeared and confronts a lonely persona. The persona is flickering and looks as if it could break at any moment. So Jun calls out his persona and places his hand over the other and begins to heal it. First off, I was thinking “Wtf! He talks to personas now?” Then my eye popped out when I saw him healing it. Jun is rigged in the most non-rigged fashion. That makes no sense probably to anyone but me, but oh well! I can just say that I am Jun more and more.
Turns out the persona belonged to Miyuri, beacuse as soon as Jun placed his hand out and began healing, Miyuri got better. We find out that Miyuri is actually a member of the enemy group and her state was most likely caused by taking too much drugs of the persona evoking drugs. I thought maybe the drugs might be the cause of her consistent coughing, turns out I was right. Yipee!
After the whole event, Jun confronts her in the hall saying that he hopes she can find the person she is looking for and that she will hold on to that person. And at the end of the episode she says to her fellow operative that she “may have found it.”
“You mean about Tohma?”
She says this while thinking about what Jun said to her.
Who or what is Tohma and what is the significance of it?
Why can Jun heal other personas?
What is Jun to Miyuri?
I hope we can find the answers to these questions shortly.
