Heh, like the season 1 final episode, this is probably one of my longest posts as well. My final impression of this series is noted at the end. =)

Episode 12: “The Ark of Stars” (series finale)

SUMMARY: Suou finds Shion knocked down on the ground in a room inside the Gate. Shion says it’s because he paid the amount necessary for his remuneration, then asks Suou to take him outside because he wants to see the moon. Yin, who’s clad in black, is humming a creepy tune while sitting on a rock in a flowery field, surrounded by a bunch of observation spectres (and contractor spirits?).

Episode 11: ” The Water Bottom is Dry, the Moon is Full…”

SUMMARY: – Underneath the orange moon, we see a bunch of contractors dying, and it looks like Yin’s responsible for it. Hei is cooking a russian dish called pelmeni for the gang, and Suou offers to help. Hei says they’ll operate separately that day since he has to take care of his own problems. Suou says she’ll do the same and asks Hei to promise that he’ll come back, and he agrees.

Episode 10: “Your Smile on the Street Corner of Lies…”

SUMMARY: Through her cell phone, Kirihara reports to Kobayashi that they blocked all the possible exits at the airport but they’re still unable to find BK-201. Kobayashi says he already escaped via boat. Apparently, Kobayashi has access to a doll network system (like the one that the Astronomy Bureau has). Shizume notes that despite Kobyashi’s access to it, BK-201 still manages to elude the system. Picking up from the last episode, Suou’s mom (Asako) pulled her car over in shock upon hearing that the child with her is Suou. Asako insists that it’s impossible because Suou died in an explosion 8 years ago. A shocked Suou gets out of the car and runs away, with July following suit, although Mao is left behind in the car.

Episode 09: “A Sudden Meeting on a Certain Day…”

SUMMARY: Kirihara listens again to the audio file she obtained from Hourai (see season 1 episode 25) and stumbles upon a hidden message from Amber, stating that whoever’s listening must be connected to Hei somehow, if the past hasn’t changed. July and Suou are on the train and she’s still mulling over Hei’s confusing words and behavior. Kiko and her friend are in the the train too. They think Suou looks like one of the characters from their favorite anime series and Kiko was forced to approach her.

Episode 08: ” On Summer Days, the Sun Flickers…”

SUMMARY: Flashback: On a summer day, Suou and her friends are in the pool, including Tanya. Suou is having a “who can stay longer under the water” contest with Nika, in which even though Nika won, Sascha declares Suou won (Lol, poor Nika being ganged up on by the girls). Back at present: Kirihara is doing her usual laps in the pool. To her surprise, Madame Oreille is there too. She notes that Kirihara doesn’t look as determined as she was before in searching for leads regarding her investigation. Oreille mentions the “Memory of the Future,” which is the other name for the Mitaka Documents, saying that it could be possible with that to change a memory and wondering whether the one who holds it would be blessed or cursed, adding that there’s said to be a contractor like that too.  Oreille says she is sharing this information to Kirihara as a “thank you” because she was able to obtain some information because of her (see episode 6).

Episode 07: “The Doll Sings to the Dancing Snow…”

SUMMARY: The Russian military bad guys learned that Dr. Pavlichenko set up many escape routes and secret passages around their house, and also tampered with their family registry to hide Shion’s existence, which they think might be related to the doctor’s research. According to the DNA results from the investigation regarding the incident at the Pavlichenko house, it was indeed the doctor’s corpse that they found. However, they find it odd that the memory extracted from the corpse was only a day’s worth. They then receive an intel from their agent that someone who looks like Dr. Pavlichenko was sighted in Japan.

Episode 06: “The Smell is Sweet, the Heart is Bitter…”

SUMMARY: Michiru drops by the bar and bakes a sponge cake. Apparently, this is her remuneration. She finds it strange that Norio welcomes her with open arms even though she’s barely been a good mother to him. She leaves after putting the cake in the oven, but not before warning Norio to stay away from Suou, whom he says he’s in love with. Switch to Mao, July and Suou by the sea. Mao lost contact with Hei, and July says Hei’s is going in the wrong direction. I turns out that Kirihara predicted his actions and Hei has walked into her trap.
