I don’t like that Murano is near, I don’t like it one bit, I don’t like it at all, please go away Murano, don’t stay in that park Murano, Please leave and stay save Murano. I like this girl, I like that she cares and she is at least somewhat intelligent, I really don’t want her to die. Everytime someone becomes even somewhat involves in Shinichi’s business they suddenly die a painful death. I hope Murano was there story-wise only to learn of the truth about Shinichi and create more tension, and not because she is about to die.
Another Character I don’t want to see die is Tamura Reiko. She is such a unique, intelligent and deep character, she can’t just disappear! Her personality and her importance has been build up considerably in the past few episode and since her first appearance I grew fond of her. As I have already discussed in the past, It seems that Shinichi and Reiko are converging towards a balanced middle-ground between a human and a parasite. Shinichi who was once human and slowly becomes ever more alien, and Reiko who starts to develop feelings and compassion for other human being (although quite limited so far). I feel the two of them could work together really well, they both have the intellect and strength to work together. Ordinarily, I’d say that Tamura Reiko is currently in a very bad spot with the police and detective looking for her while she has to protect a baby, but then again she just survived a 3 vs 1 earlier against other parasite and she survived it without difficulty. I am pretty sure she can manage and get herself out of this mess once again, in the worse case, I’m sure she could just change host (but hopefully not change to take possession of Murano!).
If there is one person I don’t care much about who died this episode it is the detective. The guy went a bit crazy after his whole family was murdered, can’t really blame him though. He was still surprisingly composed and heroic this episode despite everything, if the guy had to die, I think this was definitively a great way to go. He even revealed crucial information to the special detective AND, luckily for Shinichi, he took everything he knew about Shinichi to the grave. I am sure Shinichi will get in trouble with the authorities at some point, but for now he is still safe.
As a final note, I just want to make sure it is clear that I don’t want Murano to die. I feel that girl still has so much to contribute, she hasn’t even figured out Shinichi’s secret yet! Plus they haven’t kissed. There are still 6 episodes left, it is too soon for that girl to leave the scene just yet…don’t make me cry.
