Necromancer (死霊術師,Nekuromansā?, lit. "Raiser of the Dead") is the second episode of the Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator anime series. It was broadcast on July 19th 2019, and was directed and storyboarded by Kamanaka Nobuharu, and the script written by Sugihara Kenji.
NecromancerEsther Rosenthal is pursued by members of DA into Heaven Canceller's Hospital. Ending up in Accelerator's room, she tries to attract his attention without success and is captured by her pursuers. Having reflected sound away while reading, Accelerator initially pays them no heed but goes for answers after seeing that Esther had a photograph of Last Order and gets into a fight with the DA members.
Accelerator fights and destroys DA's Prototype Coffin, which is revealed to hold the corpse of Hitokawa Hasami who attempted suicide three days earlier (failing but then being murdered by DA) and used her Pyrokinesis, strengthened from Level 2 to Level 4.
After encountering Last Order in the corridor, Accelerator meets the escaped Esther in his room and partially chokes her while trying to get answers. Meanwhile, DA member Nishio is disposed of for his failure.
The ominous floating numbered screens with only their voices being seen for some of them is likely a reference to SEELE from Neon Genesis Evangelion, where the members are represented by large ominous black numbered monoliths.
Additional DA members are present for the aforementioned pursuit and confrontation besides Nishio.
During the communication between Nishio, Hishigata Mikihiko and other parties involved in DA, the icons are displayed as floating holograms rather than just on a monitor and given additional details. The higher-ups/backers have red icons with an emblem of a hand holding a spiked leash and numbered 'Breeder' codenames. Nishio and Hishigata's icons are blue with dog emblems, with the codenames Basset Hound and Dachshund respectively. Nishio's icon also has the DA label.
