Kiddy Girl-AND - Season 1 - Episode 5

With Di-air now part of their team, Ascoeur and Q-feuille are given a mission to investigate the old GOTT building. Once inside of the place, Q-feuille is scared, and things only get worse for her when both Di-air and Ascoeur run off, leaving her by herself. The unfamiliar place, darkness, and weird noises really get to her, and she runs across what appears to be a shape-shifting monster. She’s able to escape from it and eventually finds Ascoeur, however there’s still no sign of Di-air. The two then make their way to a laboratory-like area, and they come across what appear to be the ghosts of Alv and Dvergr. The ghosts disappear though, and Di-air suddenly reappears, unconcerned and without a scratch on her. The girls don’t get much time to rest however because they are attacked by a mechanical-looking monster that Di-air identifies as a Genetech Beast. It can change forms, and Ascoeur and Q-feuille have trouble against it until Di-air kisses them both and powers them both up. They’re then able to defeat it and find out afterward that its real form is that of a small creature, and Di-air was playing with it all along. Di-air even decides to adopt it and brings it back with her to GTO.

Shirō steps out of his hospital room for a bit and notices an unconscious police officer. While investigating, he is violently punched into submission by the newly awakened Olba, who learns of Sadao's residence from Shirō's insurance card. Atop City Hall, Sariel sadistically begins torturing Emilia in order to obtain the Better Half, although it refuses to manifest in his presence. Meanwhile, Satan arrives and destroys Sariel's barrier using his remaining magic. At that moment, Crestia attacks him with a magical mallet and is surprised to learn that Satan and his fellow demons had known about her since she first moved into the Villa Rosa. Not having any magic, Satan takes a beating from Crestia but gets up nonetheless to rescue Chiho from Sariel, leaving Crestia to realize that unlike Satan, she had abandoned her friends. At the same time, Olba visits Lucifer and seeks to reestablish their contract. As Sariel begins to reveal a perverted nature, Emilia claims that Satan will show up to save Chiho because of his natural instinct to protect his fellow coworkers, which is mocked by Sariel. Much to Chiho and Emilia's relief Satan does arrive but is easily overwhelmed by Sariel due to his lack of magic. Elsewhere, Olba replenishes his magic with Emilia's drink and casts a spell which enlarges the Moon, which increases Sariel's magic while subsequently throwing the city into mass panic. The panic grants Satan an enormous magical boost but Sariel remains confident in his power, even as Crestia decides to side with Satan. Elsewhere, Lucifer knocks Olba out, cancelling the Moon spell, after deceiving him into throwing the city into panic for Satan's advantage. Finally Satan and Sariel engage in an epic aerial battle which destroys half of the city and ultimately ends with Sariel's defeat to Satan's demon sword.

The Future Diary - Season 1 - Episode 15

Aru deduces that the Eighth's diary is a server hosting and sending predictions to the blogs of her apprentices. When Yuki's diary predicts an attack by three of them, Aru has him moved to Kousaka's mansion. His plan is to lure the apprentices in, then deactivate the area's cell phone tower, severing their connection to the Eighth's server. Once the attack begins, however, Yuno appears and cuts the power to the tower remote control, wanting to defend Yuki by herself. Aru and Kousaka rush to deactivate the tower manually, while Yuki keeps Yuno in restraints. Two of Eighth's apprentices, Marco Ikusaba and Ai Mikami, manage to corner Yuki and Yuno by the time Aru deactivates the tower. However, Marco and Ai reveal that they are also the "owner" of a bona fide Future Diary, which has remained unaffected. With no other choice, Yuki releases Yuno, who intimidates the couple into retreating. When the third apprentice sets the mansion on fire, however, Marco and Ai counterattack. Their diaries' ability to predict each other's actions manages to overwhelm Yuno, resulting in her and Yuki getting injured and their diaries taken away. As Yuki and his friends are brooding in the hospital, they are approached by Uryu.

In order to confuse them, he has Uryu feed Yuki false information. Yuki's father visits him in the hospital, but while Yuki's away, he searches the room for his cell phone. Yuno overhears that he has promised to destroy it in return for the cancellation of his substantial debt and realises he is being used by the Eleventh diary holder. Marco, who's learned all about the situation from Yuki's diary, considers Yuki's father a useful link to Uryu and the Eleventh and calls Yuno, demanding that they bring Yuki's father to an abandoned commercial tower. Once they arrive, Marco places Yuki and Yuno's phones on a table and attacks Yuki's father. As Yuki futilely fights Marco, his father goes over to the table and breaks his phone. However, nothing happens. Yuno, who's realised that the phones were decoys, attacks Ai and successfully retrieves both diaries. Just then, Marco and Ai's apprentice friend sets off explosives. The floor under Yuki collapses and both his father and Yuno reach out to grab him.

Aru talks to Yuno through her surveillance feed, revealing he dug up three corpses from her garden, two of which had recently had their skulls removed. When he threatens to give this information to the police unless she releases them, the stress causes Yuno to alter her memory again, rendering negotiations moot. As Kousaka uses his cell phone to post his will in his blog, it is apparently turned into a Future Diary by the Eighth diary holder, who adresses him as an "apprentice". On Aru's advice, Kousaka acts out his diary's predictions, reaching an amnesiac Yuno, a catatonic Yuki and a bound Hinata in the control room. His appearance causes Yuki to recover, recalling how Yuno abducted him to keep him safe until July 28th. Yuno places the key to Yuki's shackles on the floor and tosses Kousaka the control panel key, allowing him to free Aru and Mao. Yuno then takes advantage of Kousaka's distraction and shoots at him with a crossbow. However, Yuki, having had his key kicked over to him by Hinata, frees himself and stops Yuno, leaving her behind when his diary predicts the imminent arrival of three diary holders, all apprentices of the Eighth.

Yuki and Yuno get arrested and brought to Keigo. In the interrogation room, Keigo forces Yuki to play a rigged game of Russian Roulette with his service revolver. Alerted to Keigo's treachery by her diary, Yuno knocks out the detectives guarding her and steals their guns. Just before Yuki gets shot, Yuno breaks into the room, injures Keigo and leaves with Yuki. Panicking, Yuki shoots at one of the policemen pursuing them. Since both Yuki and Yuno have now committed a crime, their actions can be detected by Keigo's diary, which was his plan all along. Trapped at the police station's roof, Yuki and Yuno jump off, but a truck's tarp breaks their fall. The next day, Yuki and Yuno are hiding from the police when they notice Keigo's wife visiting a hospital. When they follow her, they get ambushed by Uryu, who blows part of the floor up. After Yuki accidentally causes more of the floor to collapse, Uryu allies with Yuki in order to have Yuno pull them both to safety, incurring Keigo's wrath in the process. With their deaths foretold in all three diaries, Uryu takes Yuki and Yuno to the room where Keigo's son and wife are.
