Ep 8 – “Search for a Fore-Lost Journey” / “Arakajime Ushinawareta Michinori o Sagashite” (あらかじめ失われた道程をさがして)
Takizawa wakes up to find Saki tending to his wounds, and learns that Kuroha has disappeared. Osugi returns to the Eden of the East club; he tells them that he was invited to a drinking party and had his bag stolen that night, which caused the misunderstanding. He shows his displeasure about them associating with Takizawa and leaves. He sees Takizawa with Saki and tries to find his true identity. Takizawa asks Eden if they could repair his Seleção phone (which belonged to Kondō). Hirasawa suggests he go visit “Pantsu”, a computer prodigy, and sends Saki and Micchon with him to keep an eye on him. While Saki and Micchon go to the convenience store, Takizawa talks to “Pantsu” about Seleção and gets the recluse “Pantsu” to let him in. Meanwhile, Osugi checks on Takizawa’s picture that he posted, but the respondents identify Takizawa by all sorts of names. Concluding that Takizawa must be some kind of criminal, he calls Hirasawa in a panic to warn Eden.
