Hamatora - Season 1 - Episode 3

Itou Shouko of the Association for Health, Protection and Equality of Youths contracts Hamatora to search for a scandal within Facultas Academy. Meanwhile, Art questions Professor Moral after learning that the Association had been providing large quantities of the Nemcrois drug for his research into non-innate Minimum Holders. Moral explains his warped interest into a world where everyone possesses Minimum abilities and taunts Art on his graduation from Facultas despite not possessing a Minimum. Meanwhile, a large monstrous figure crashes a public Association meeting and reveals itself as Itou's son, Takahiro before escaping. As Art makes his way to the scene, Moral implies that he had given the Minimum ability to Takahiro, with the former swearing to arrest him. Afterwards, Nice blames Itou for Takahiro's change. Realizing that he was being challenged however, Nice approaches Takahiro while Moral also comes to the same conclusion as Takahiro, that it would be worth challenging Facultas' top graduate—Nice to see if he had surpassed natural Minimum Holders with his abilities. However in the end, Nice makes quick work of Takahiro. In the epilogue, Moral burns down his facility and escapes before Gasquet can arrest him. At the same time, Itou's assistant severs his support of Moral's research. Unperturbed, Moral then sets his sights on Nice.
