Phi Brain episode 17

Wow, so they finally decided to tell us a little bit more about Kaito’s past, huh? I was waiting for this, which is why I enjoyed watching this episode. It was a little bit infuriating at times, but this episode generally turned out pretty good.

The episode starts with yet another challenged slammed against Kaito. You know how he is; he never walks away from a challenge. But this time it was the same puzzle that killed his parents all those years ago. Once they arrived they met up with the principle who expected their arrival. Now we know why he couldn’t be found at school.

I couldn’t believe what happened next. He finally came clean about everything. About how he and Souji are POG givers, about how his parents were with the POG as well, but it didn’t end there. It became a lot more complicated when it turned out that Kaito and his deceased parents weren’t actually blood related. It seems that they were merely taking care of Kaito in order to raise him as a Phi Brain child. He has been solving puzzles ever since he was a little boy, and it’s all thanks to the POG. I guess having a normal childhood is overrated in their world, huh?

Baron revealed every little detail about his parents, the POG and about Jin, who’s apparently being held captive by the POG. Kaito didn’t waste time, as he still decided to solve that dangerous puzzle. What surprised me here is that he made it look like it was easy. Sure, he used his bracelet’s powers, but he still solved it without hesitating, without stopping and without thinking things over. That has got to count for something.

You can definitely tell that this season is nearing its end, which is why I expect to see a lot of action in the next couple of episodes. I’m rather curious about the season’s ending, after all; it’s going to have to be good enough to make people want to come back for the second season. Oh well, we’ll see what happens.
