Ep 8 – “New Model” / “Shin Kishu” (新機種)

Karyuudo Tsukishima, the Tenth Future Diary Holder, requests to transfer his diary’s ownership when Deus calls a meeting for the eight surviving Future Diary Holders. Two weeks after Reisuke’s disappearance, Yuki and Yuno transfer to a new school, while a series of brutal murders has been terrorizing the area. After school, Yuki and Yuno sneak in one of the crime scenes with Yuki’s classmates Ouji Kosaka, Hinata Hino and Mao Nonosaka. When Hinata wanders off, Yuki’s diary predicts her being attacked. Yuki rushes everyone to the scene, where they find Hinata’s body before a pack of vicious dogs. A strange boy named Aru Akise appears and leads everyone to a nearby observation tower. Aru explains that he is one of Yuki’s classmates and that he has been investigating the strange events in which Yuki keeps getting involved. Despite Yuno’s mistrust in everyone, Yuki decides to reveal the existence of his diary in order to defend the group against the dogs. After the dogs suddenly retreat, Mao takes Yuki’s diary at knifepoint and hands it to Hinata, who is alive and well. After it is learned that Hinata is a Future Diary Holder, she reveals that her real target is Aru, suspecting him as a Future Diary Holder.

Aru accidentally injures Murmur while riding his bike without a seat through a tunnel, so he takes her to an amusement park to make it up to her. Aru figures out that Murmur did this on purpose, but still has no idea how his seat got stolen in the first place.
