Ep 5 – “Holy Nights Don’t Shine Brightly” / “Seiya wa Kagayakanai” (聖夜は輝かない)
Thirty years after episode four, the borders between 1.0 and 2.0 have been erased completely and it is now possible to “download” things into the real world. Rin took 25 years to regenerate her body and suffered retrograde amnesia in process. Teruki became a successful businessman and Mimi, a Buddhist nun. Meanwhile, Apos had disguised Laura as Rin and made her hunt immortals for their time fruits. The episode begins with Teruki’s daughter Mishio discovering his records of Rin and by chance, meeting her amnesiac self. Rin is working for a company whose CEO is an immortal who is soon killed by Laura. Mishio finds her body, and thinking that her killer was Rin, starts following her around. She witnesses a man named Ihika propose to Rin, which she refuses, telling him of her amnesia. After Mishio asks Teruki about Rin, he finds her but decides that it’s better for her painful memories not to return and avoids contact. He then finds Mimi who tells him that Rin is apparently hunting immortals. Meanwhile, Rin accepts Ihika’s new proposal and the two are about to have sex, when Laura attacks and kills them both. This returns Rin’s memories and she escapes with Mishio to Teruki’s estate. After a conversation with him, Rin and Mishio take a train to Kyoto, where Mimi’s temple is located. Anticipating Laura’s attack, Mimi invites three other immortals but Laura brings along several angels who proceed to devour them. Rin arrives and defeats Laura and the angels, only to witness Mimi raped by Apos. Apos is then revealed to be an immortal angel hybrid and removes Rin’s time fruit, presumably killing her.
