Re: Hamatora: Episode 11 – “End of Yokohama”

Re: Hamatora is the second season of the Hamatora anime series. This season begins three months after the end of the first season, and the Hamatora detective agency is still taking on cases that come their way.

Episode 11 ends up providing backstory for Boss, the owner of Café Nowhere. It turns out that he was one of the scientists working under Moral and Doktor when Hajime’s Nihilist Minimum was activated the first time. Boss ends up saving Hajime’s life when he declares that he’ll be her guardian and watch over her when Doktor wants to kill her for being too dangerous. We also see the beginnings for Café Nowhere. Koneko just appears at the time when Boss opens the café. I just have to assume that he found her somewhere and brought her in to help him and Hajime with the business.

Ishigami and the Freemums launch their plan, in which they demand during a broadcast that Yokohama becomes a special district restricted to Minimum Holders. If not, they have a way of killing some people at a time until their demand is met. Later, Ishigami takes on Doktor when he tries arguing against giving in to the Freemums demands.

But the Freemums are in for a surprise when Art reveals that he was simply using them. I was basically right when I guessed in my writeup for Episode 10 that Art was simply using the Freemums to gather as many Minimum Holders together as possible and using Hajime’s Nihilist Minimum to get rid of Minimum abilities.

This episode ended up being rather intense. And with only one episode left, I’m very curious to see how this story is resolved. At this point, it appears that Nice is dead. However, we were deceived once before, so the writers could be pulling a similar stunt here. But in addition to that, it appears that Hajime’s Nihilist Minimum has been taking away Minimum Holders’ powers, including everyone associated with Hamatora. The situation looks rather bleak and hopeless at the end of Episode 11, so I’m very curious to know how this story can be resolved in one episode. Hopefully we won’t see any reliance on a “deus ex machina” ending or something really bizarre happening in order to reverse what happened at the end of this episode.
