DeSu 2 #7: Physicals and Peeping Toms

Yuzuru Akie (Joe)You knew that event was coming, didn’t you?

I don’t think I ever got this event.

He's not wrong. It's probably just me, but the Septentriones got way harder after Phecda.

Where we last left off, Yamato is still dead-set on wanting Hibiki back as his weapon, but Alcor continues to remind him that if he hadn’t intervened, Hibiki would be dead. And then Alcor asks Hibiki what he’ll do now: Continue fighting alongside Ronaldo and the insurgents, or side with Yamato again?

With the appearance of the second of Alcor’s servants, Fallen Bifrons, everyone begins to question how he is able to control demons without a cellphone. Oh, and speaking of Bifrons, he’s just as big a jerk as Botis is as he simply blows up Ronaldo’s men’s demons with no effort. It turns out Alcor was the one who designed Nicaea and the demon summoning apps so that humans could fight against the Septentriones, and their fate.

Yamato reveals that the next Septentrione will appear the next day in Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya simultaneously. Hibiki decides to fight to protect people on his own, without serving Yamato and JP’s. With the Nagoya Branch vulnerable thanks to Ronaldo’s group, Yamato is forced to call a temporary truce so they can defend Nagoya.

The next day, JP’s personnel, and anyone associated with JP’s, have to go through a physical checkup before the next battle. During hers, Io asks Otome about her reasons for joining JP’s. She used to be a regular doctor in Osaka until the government recruited her. They also pay her better and allow her to leave her daughter (whom she adopted from a deceased relative of hers) in their care.

You can't see it too well, but Otome's daughter has brown hair. If I recall correctly we never see her in-person in the game.

Meanwhile, Daichi and Joe decide to use this opportunity to play Peeping Tom into the girls’ dressing rooms and Hibiki is unfortunately dragged in with them. They run into Io and Airi, the latter whom only Joe noticed because of her cute bellybutton.

Now if the anime adapts a certain scene, then Airi's cute bellybutton becomes important. No, seriously.

That aside, it’s time to get down to business.

Since they are linked together, they must be destroyed simultaneously. Hibiki, Daichi, Io, and Hinako are assigned to fight the Megrez in Osaka. Ronaldo, Joe, Jungo, and Airi are left to defend Nagoya. Yamato alone will go solo against the Megrez in Tokyo. The episode closes with Fumi looking over the physical reports, having found the suitable sacrifice for Lugh…

Well, unless Hibiki plays his cards right, he's gonna find himself short one more party member.
