Major Events

  • Accelerator and Esther Rosenthal visit the warehouse where Esther was previously held captive. Finding the remains of Nishio and his disposed unit, they encounter the Qiong Qi and have a brief remote conversation with its controller, Hishigata Mikihiko. Accelerator attempts to prevent the Qiong Qi from escaping, but the Coffin repels his attack with Level 5-class Telekinesis before flying away.
  • After Last Order discovers Esther with Accelerator and throws the boxes of food she brought for Accelerator at him, the three go to a restaurant for a meal. Leaving the other two briefly, Accelerator phones Yoshikawa Kikyou to ask her to look into DA.
  • Esther visits the hospital morgue to perform a ritual on the body of Hitokawa Hasami so she can be properly laid to rest. Accelerator observes and as a result of touching a mass of residual thoughts that surface during the ritual, sees the dead girl's memories. A pair of DA members posing as Anti-Skill officers interrupt and attempt to destroy the corpse (as evidence linking to DA) but are thwarted by Accelerator. As they prepare to fight, the Huotou still attached to Hitokawa Hasami's body activates.
