Summary: (from Yamato comes to Ritsuka's school and talks him into going for coffee with her by talking about Seimei, who she says it's good Ritsuka is not like. He spills coffee on her. She jumps up, and then goes to clean it off. While there, we see flashbacks of her early time with Kouya, and there is an interspersed phonecall between Soubi and Ritsu-sensei. This collectively reveals (to the viewer) that the zero girls defeated the boys by temporarily switching Sacrifices, and that Yamato was willing to use such reckless tactics because the zero mark is fading from her chest due to genetic engineering bugs. On their way to the fight that evening, Ritsuka tells Soubi he thinks Yamato can feel pain, and to use that in the fight. Eventually Soubi does cause Yamato to cry out, revealing to Kouya that Yamato's zero qualities are fading. Soubi tries to finish them off but Ritsuka stops him. Kouya abandons the battle, ending her role as a fighting unit. The girls decide not to die, but to start a new llife together. Meanwhile, Ritsuka wonders more about what Seimei was like as Soubi's master.

Review: Intensely faithful to the manga. I'm shocked at how fluidly they've adapted things. An extremely good episode, and Kouya/Yamato is still ultimately, next to Ritsuka/Soubi, my favourite pairing. Since the manga hasn't ended yet, I really hope they do a second season like they did with Marimite. ;_; Either that, or the forthcoming drama albums will help make up for things not in the anime.
