Konnichiwa Minna. This is our second week of our March Anime Challenge. Last week’s challenge was episode 1 – 3. In Episode 1 “Evil, Flood-Colored City” , we met quite a few of the character and a few story plots unfolded, but let’s focus on the two reporters, Maria Ōsawa and Minoru Minorikawa that were sent on an assignment to cover the upcoming International Anti-Terrorism Conference. In the episode we see them in the street observing and interacting with the festivities that are taking place. There are people dancing and laughing, fireworks, everyone is in a festive mood. Minoru thinks he sees a diplomat in disguise and leaves Maria in the crowd. Maria wanders off, and follows two adorable children playing around, enjoying the festival. Then one of the children slips and falls and as the child lifts its hand there are blood all over him. That is when Maria discovers the corpse of a dead man, which was definitely infected with a virus! WE will not spoil the rest for you except that one of the best armed chase-scenes in anime happens right after that. There are much more that happens to the two reporters, but this is just a teaser review, and you just have to go watch the episodes to find out what happened next!
