Spoilers ahead, if you haven’t watched this episode, then you probably shouldn’t be reading this.
On “Not Waking from a Dream” Chizuru takes center stage, we finally find out why she’s emotionless. The loss of her parents at such a young age sent her into a downward spiral where emotions became the enemy, it’s simple, if you don’t feel, you can’t be hurt. Well, her mask is starting to crack, after learning that Isana is the next target; she has a desire to protect her, which goes against her whole “hollow” nature. On an unrelated note, Pharos Hercules looks like one bad dude. Merry might have her hands full once she runs into him in a dark alley/daydream.
