Shit hits the fan. Also, it's hard to see Kaoru getting brutalized like that

Also, I always wished that Kouga killed that dude

I initially felt sorry for the guy being alone and cutting himself to feed the fish, but then it got waaaaay to crazy.

I'd have wasted him back at the car. You can't really turn a blind eye to something like that and call yourself a protector of, well, anything. I'm gonna go ahead and say a great deal of this episode is Kouga's fault, between not stopping the guy when he had the chance, using Kaoru as bait for real, and not having told her about the blood thing a LOT earlier.

Very somber episode, with Kaoru learning why she was spared by Kouga. You'd expect her to haul off and hit him for toying with her life, but seeing her basically break down really hits the emotions and drives home the reality that maybe she can't really trust him from now on but he's her only protection from the Horrors.

It gets me everytime I watch the scene with Kaoru and Kouga at the end. Her expressions and crying is so poignant. Like the sobs want to break out but she is holding them in...then finally letting it all out when she was running away.

Sigh Kouga. I can't fault him for keeping vital information from Kaoru. I don't think he thought her only as bait in the beginning too. That was something he told himself and others to justify not killing her outright.

Even on a rewatch, I still feel like the moral is silly, childish, and naive. It's also put together in a way that goes against how characters probably would actually act. Like Kouga letting the murderer go. If he were under a time constraint, that would make sense, but how hard would it be for him to knock the guy out and Batman him to a police station?

Or Kaoru stopping Kouga from straight up murdering the guy. She is a straight up saint if she thinks that guy should live after he tried to feed her to his fish. Didn't he also basically just traumatize her and cut her drawing hand? All I can do is roll my eyes and pretend this episode isn't a thing.

Another thing that I think is dumb is that the guy names the fish Haru. Which is fine, it's a regular human name (means "Spring"). But then the three watchdogs say the Horrors name is Haru. What??? It doesn't have some weird demon name or anything? It's just Haru, annnd the guy happened to name his fish that?

Also Kaneda Ryuu directed this episode. So it's no surprise that there's some bad decisions that go into this.

I don't think the point of Kouga letting the murderer go has anything to do with being in a hurry. He lets him go because it's not his job to fight against human issues, but horror issues. Kouga at that time didn't care.

Actually I was recently having a conversation with a friend about what would have Kouga done if he faced the same situation after Makai Senkim, and what other makai knights would do in the same situation.
