Now that the show is in its third episode many of expectations set up in episode 1 are not fulfilled. It doesn’t continue the western themes other than movie references and it has not continued its sense of humour. It has settled down to an interesting mystery show that is still enough to continue watching.
Movie references of the episode – Dawn of the Dead, Cinema Paradiso, The Cold Blue
Akira and Saki arrive at Akira’s home, the Toyosu shopping complex. In the past Akira bought the complex to be his base of operations. In this episode we are introduce to a Akira’s pet, a puppy with wings.
