Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun 2 episode 04
Yeah, I knew it. I knew they would follow up with Sousuke’s (evil) twin as soon as I saw him during last week’s ending. I can only imagine that he is going to be appearing a lot more often now that the second season is almost halfway over.
I didn’t know that they would bring in another character right away. I thought that they were going to focus a bit more in Sousuke’s twin. Although I must admit that this girl, a priestess of sorts that plays host to a deity, seems very interesting. We have plenty of episodes left to focus on Sousuke’s twin, so this is fine.
It seems that girl is under the impression that her guardian, Yana, has passed away somehow, yet she still bears his mark and loses consciousness from time to time. She does not know that Yana is still alive, and that he is attacking (random?) people. I find it strange that the people around her have not yet noticed this.
I can only imagine that this is happening after Sousuke’s twin took over the other half of Yana’s mark. It seems that Yana’s other half was a deer, so I’m guessing that Sousuke’s twin killed that deer and/or took over his powers. That might explain why that girl thinks he’s dead, I think.
The pieces of the puzzle are very slowly falling into place, but what about Sousuke’s twin? Can he already control that power at will? Is he actually the one that’s controlling Yana at this point? This episode just gave me a whole lot more questions. This is how it should be! I am really looking forward to seeing what Sousuke will do to his twin during the next episode!
