Inuyashiki gains his first ally because Andou is smart enough of a kid and willing to take a chance and shout for help randomly in his room. I’ll give Andou points for figuring things out through the internet and finding an effective way to contact Inuyashiki. For story purpose, Inuyashiki didn’t enter the house in a hurry even though he flew in and chose to ring the bell and ask through the intercom if the household is being robbed. If they were being robbed, they wouldn’t be able to answer, would they?
Anyway, Andou, after having a short and somewhat awkward chat with Inuyashiki, Andou is admittedly overwhelmed as he realises this is the hero he has been waiting for his whole life, the kind straight from a comic book. Inuyashiki says something in return, something that confirms the suspicion we’ve had all along. What if the only reason he’s saving people is because the alternative is admitting he isn’t human anymore? That he might as well be a monster, an weapon with a brain? Andou decides to help Inuyashiki anyway he can. As far he’s concerned, Inuyashiki is more human than anyone else.
Andou is the support Inuyashiki needs. He’s young and is infinitely curious about this stuff. He can easily help Inuyashiki figure out his powers. Sadly, he also treats Inuyashiki better than his own son and daughter. Actually, it’s funny how even the villain is a better son than Inuyashiki’s own. Speaking of which, the daughter is in the same class as Andou, which makes me wonder what would happen if Hiro figures out the connection. Would he attack her? Would he let her go because she’s a classmate?
Let’s go have a look at the designated villain, shall we? Hiro continues to be a fairly complicated character. A child of a broken but happy home, his mother means the world to him. So, when her mother says she would die with Hiro rather than have a murder son, Hiro decides it’s time to stop. Except, police find their way to him the very next day of his resolve.
I’m not certain about the last scene, if it’s a fluke or not. At one point, Hiro found himself bleeding, thought he has finally become human again and feels genuinely joyous, only to wake up in his previous state. Hiro clearly wants to go back to his old life and while enjoys the power, doesn’t like the lack of emotions. To feel those emotions, he went about the wrong way. It doesn’t absolve him of any crimes, and while the prospect of his mother finding out his sons deeds is heartbreaking, he needs to pay for it. Her mother never suspects it’s her own son, and no one ever does, but it’s commendable if she has the strength to follow through with what she said, though it’s impossible to kill Hiro now.
The next episode should be interesting, granted the cops really are at the door and it’s not another dream. Is Hiro going to run, will he hurt the cops in the process or maybe he would actually listen to his mother?
