Code Breaker – Chapter 15

The One on the Phone

Nothing surprising until the end. First twin Spetnaz surgeons…
Now a hot undercover teacher?

Brief Summary

Sakura had survived the blast but when she came to, the girl found herself in a more dangerous situation. Bound up with wire, collared with another explosive device… she became the arsonist’s hostage.

When asked what his motives were, Noguchi merely watched as the apartment nearby burst into flames.

Noguchi denied that he targeted his victims for any reason. Instead, he’s doing it because someone told him that everyone wants to kill…

Then, to mess with Sakura, he revealed Puppy who was also collared with an explosive. Noguchi released her pet and laughed when it ran about, trying to escape its fiery end. Though she begged for him to stop, the dog was soon consumed in flames.

Turning around, he taunted Sakura, telling her that he’ll continue his evil deeds. Even if he’s caught, Noguchi could pull off an innocent act and escape with a light punishment.

It was that moment when Oogami chose to reveal himself and the unharmed puppy.

Looking at Oogami in disdain, Noguchi revealed that he’s going to kill him as ordered and hurled a handful of explosives at the Code Breaker.

But those flames didn’t even faze him. Moreover, all the explosives that Noguchi had planted were in Oogami’s hand…

By clenching his fist, all of them were purified by his blue flames. In desperation, Noguchi tried to save himself by playing on their friendship, reaching out at Oogami with his hand. The Code Breaker took it but said that the past will never come back… right before turning Noguchi into ash.

After his turning a former friend into ash, Sakura asked why he did this even if it wasn’t part of his job (not knowing that Oogami received a last minute order).

But he couldn’t answer… because he collapsed in her arms.

But thankfully, Oogami’s support arrived… and it turned out to be their homeroom teacher.

Impressions

Nothing too suprising. I was waiting for Oogami’s power to give out… or at least some weakness to show itself. His collapse into Sakura’s arms served two purposes… 1) to show that his blue flame has a limit (time/usage) and 2) to strengthen the bond between Sakura and him. She will have a greater role in his life, probably designated to be his backup. Ms. Kanda didn’t seem hostile to Sakura so official recognization isn’t too far-fetched.

Noguchi’s end was a tad touching… with the handshake part. However, what peaked my interest is how a single person seems to be after Oogami, rather than an organization or a counter to the Code Breaker institution. It must be someone who’s familiar with him… possibly family.

All in all, the next chapter looks to be interesting. More about Oogami’s mysterious power will be revealed and I suspect more agents to be at work, other than their homeroom teacher.

Oh, and why doesn’t the puppy look smoky? Even if it did survive the blast, shouldn’t it have darkened fur or something?
