After realizing that Aria’s full name is Aria Holmes Kanzaki, Kinji gets into trouble when Shirayuki angrily knocks the door as she has not received any replies from Kinji. Shirayuki then meets Aria and commotion starts between the two due to misunderstanding. Shirayuki is revealed to be a Chotei, a special type of Butei with esper abilities. After Shirayuki realizes that Kinji is just Aria’s “slave”, Shirayuki feels relieved, but finds out that Aria and Kinji already did a kissing scene.
Aria decides to start a new training regime to try to get Kinji to control his Hysteria Mode. Soon after, Aria drags Kinji to eavesdrop Shirayuki who proceeds to the teacher’s office and they later find out that there is a Chotei kidnapper named Durandal who may be targeting Shirayuki. Aria, who believes that Durandal is one of the culprits who framed her mother, volunteers to be Shirayuki’s bodyguard along with Kinji.
At the apartment, Shirayuki receives call from Kinji, and rushes into his bathroom, but finds out that the call was fake. Shirayuki then sees Kinji in his underwear, and Shirayuki is about to undress as an exchange for seeing him half-naked. A misunderstanding occurs when Aria witness the two, and so, Kinji is attacked and is thrown out the window.
It’s like a battle between a cat and a dog when I see Aria and Shirayuki fight each other even to death. It really shows how Shirayuki is so obsessive to Kinji more than just a childhood friend. But I feel sorry for Shirayuki because most of the time, her appearance in the series is often neglected, unlike the two, Kinji and Aria, who would make a good tandem especially when emergency situation arises.
Shirayuki Hotogi is considered as Yandere in the series who unconsciously makes her violent actions but shows deep affection to Kinji. I have to say she is the prettiest among the main girls I have encountered in this series though I consider Aria as my favorite female anime character as of the moment. When Aria and Shirayuki fight, I am in my neutral mind because I still acknowledge their obsession towards Kinji. Yes, even Aria already has started to make love for Kinji.
This episode reveals another puzzle to find out who really is Durandal and what is his/her motive to Shirayuki. It’s quite bothering for Shirayuki to receive fake calls, but she does not obviously show any worries. I am looking forward to the appearance of Durandal and how Shirayuki would face this creature.
