Ep 9 – “Blocking Calls” / “Chakushin Kyohi” (着信拒否)
A week ago, Hinata received her diary, with the ability to control dogs on her command, from her dog breeder father Karyuudo, who wanted her to eliminate Aru. In the present, when Hinata demands Aru’s diary, he challenges her to guess which hand he is hiding a coin in, with his diary as the forfeit. Despite using Yuki’s diary, Hinata loses and has to release Yuki. However, Yuno realizes that Aru is not a Future Diary Holder, relying on bluff and observation instead. Unfazed, Aru proposes one more round of his game, with Yuki’s diary on the line. By intending to tell Yuki that he lost, no matter what the outcome, Aru manages to neutralize Yuki’s diary, since its predictions are based on Yuki’s perception. With the game thus reduced to a fifty-fifty gamble, Aru manages to guess correctly. Mao attempts to destroy Yuki’s diary, but Yuno injures her. Yuki, Yuno, Aru and Kosaka leave the park, while Hinata uses her diary to send the dog pack after them. Yuki decides to return to Hinata and try to reason with her, but Yuno reaches her first and threatens to kill her, as well as anyone who attempts to come between her and Yuki. To pacify Yuno, Yuki is forced to declare her as his girlfriend. Karyuudo communicates with everyone via radio, explaining that he mistook Aru as a Future Diary Holder, and after he warns Yuki about Keigo, a gunshot is heard through the radio.
Murmur poses as one of Karyuudo’s dog, but she gets caught during roll call. She then introduces Karyuudo to the survival game while still wearing a dog costume.
