The Health Ministry is willing to engage in negotiations with Sato while Kei finally makes contact with his no-nonsense mother while she is in the hospital with Kei’s sister. We also get some insights as to how Demi-Humans are treated in other countries; spotlighting the United States.
It may seem a contrary opinion but, I kinda understand Kei’s mom. Coming off the heels of the hysterical mom in Drifting Classroom, we have a mom character who is ruthlessly practical with a unique insight into how her son thinks. It may seem heartless but she’s letting him go to do what he needs to do; which is a mission she knows is dangerous. I found that refreshing.
As to the ending vow from Kei to take down Sato for good… Yeah, I have a feeling Kei’s gonna either get his ass handed to him a few more times or lose a bunch of people. Sato is a villain that really gives no fucks. I guess we’ll see how this goes.
