Akane always gave off that vibe of helplessness. I guess she has, along the course of this series. But seeing her now and how she handled herself, not just with her negotiations with Sybil but how her train of thought came close to Kougami’s, I guess she’s at a turning point. Her evolution draws near.
I’m quite interested to see how things would turn out, how she would turn out. The experiences she had during her time as an Inspector will be tested in this final confrontation with both Kougami and Makishima. What will happen? Will she side with Sybil and save Makishima or will Kougami have his way and shed some blood?
