|Episode 15 - Let's Go Back to the Academy|
Natsume wakes up, and they start whispering about how they're gonna get out of there... finally, Mikan realizes the panda earmuffs she's wearing is a communicator. Hotaru gets a message... "Looks like she finally figured out how to use it."
Narumi and Jinno start instructing them on how to stay safe until they arrive... Jinno says they musn't let them know what their alices are no matter what... Natsume manages to burn his rope and unties everyone, and Narumi tells them to pretend they are still tied up and unconsious.. but Natsume's small burst of power distorted the barrier enough for Shidou, the guy with the alice barrier to notice... Narumi knows Shidou too... Reo tells him about why he joined this anti-gakuen organization... He says he realized what a fool he was to let that school take advantage of him.. he says that some unnamed woman, his senior, managed to escape the academy as well..
ugh... I really hate this aspect of Gakuen Alice... it gives you vague little bits of the main plot at a time and leaves these arbitrary gaps in the story to keep some things a mystery to only be revealed later, but only makes it seem convoluted and hard to follow. It makes it kind of annoying to follow on a slow schedule like this, even when you're writing things down.
Reo uses his power to try to get them to say what their alices are.. Mikan uses her power and stops Sumire when she's about to say it, and Natsume manages to muster enough energy to throw something at Reo.. He has people with guns behind him, but he gets them to back off, thinking his voice pheremones are enough to do the job... but Mikan just keeps blocking him.. this is enough for him to find out that Mikan has the nullification alice.
"This face... you definitely look like... that person."
Reo leaves to form a change of plans because of this new information... Natsume gets Sumire to use her cat powers to sniff around.. she says that there's gunpowder too warehouses down.. he tells them to start running once he gives the signal. He puts his hand on the wall and threatens to detonate the explosives if they move, letting Mikan and Sumire escape. But Mikan realizes what Natsume intends to do and heads back to save him... Sumire wants to help Mikan, but realizes she should go to the school for help instead.. then she gets caught by someone..
Then later that Shadow Alice guy comes and saves Sumire... Mikan saves Natsume and gives him her argument about why she came back to rescue him.. Natsume manages to create an explosion when they are just about to get captured again, and Mikan wakes up in the hospital.. Narumi tells Mikan that Jinno has agreed to upgrade her to single-star.
