Something new. Can’t say too much on it so far. Seems like it could go good places. Has a similar theme to Mokke, you could say. but I don’t think it’s going to get on my nerves as much as that anime did.

The episode starts off rather morbidly as we see a very young girl laying still on a bed. A fly lands on her lips. She does not even flinch. Is she dead? You don’t find out. The onlooker switches to an aerial view over a shrine. Then, on some stone steps, this apparition with brown eyes sees a girl. She looks directly up at him.

Komori Tarou, our hero I guess, wakes up from his dream. He records his dream and then goes to wonder outside. He meets a woman who is picking up some sake¬† for an old man. At dinner that night the family discusses daily babble monotonously. Komori’s mother prayed to a shrine before dinner. It had belonged to Komori’s sister who passed away sometime.

The family still seems a bit sad about it. Weary, shaken, depressed…You know. Even mentioning her is taboo.

The next morning at school, Komori is exhausted and passes out in class. He has another out of body dream where he can actually see himself from above. He then sees a room full of girls laying still like the ones he has seen before. He has memories of being shut in a box by a big man. He wakes up and leaves.

Outside of his classroom a boy named Nakajima Masayuki approaches him and introduces himself. He makes mention that Komori’s name sounds like an honor students name. Perhaps foreshadowing what he would possibly want to be friends with him for.

Komori goes to see the school’s new psychologist upon the principals’ request. During this session we learn that Komori is narcoleptic and was involved with an incident two years in the past. If I read the subtitles right he and a bunch of other kids were kidnapped. He was found safely, but I’d wager that the kidnapping claimed his sisters’ life.

Meanwhile, Nakajima is pestering the school’s bad boy Oogami.¬† He asks a strange question about why Oogami would hate Kormori. After school, Komori is walking home when he comes across the girl he saw look at him in his dream. Through her eyes, we see she is looking as a ghost. The girls goes up a mountain path and the episode ends with Komori looking at that path.
