Otome Youkai Zakuro 4 – timid distance
October 27, 2010
Episode 4 of Otome Youkai Zakuro sees the other members of the Bureau of Spirit Affairs (especially Susukihotaru-san and Riken) investigating the arrival of a strange artifact.
As a result of this we learn that the girls have special powers, and that Susukihotaru’s is empathy, which enables her to pick up memories and thoughts from people or select objects.
Riken plays things cool, but supportive, which gradually wins Susukihotaru’s heart.
We seem to be in a “flesh out the other characters” phase, so next week features the twins and Ganryu. That probably means we won’t learn anything significant next week either, about the mysterious beings that seem to be trying to capture Zakuro.
