Tokyo 24th Ward Episode 5 was tense, and one of the saddest yet. Compared to previous episodes, the resolution of this particular trolley dilemma was rather quiet and perhaps disappointing, and too straightforward for some.
This, however, only makes the anime harder to predict; you can never know if the RGB will choose one of the two options presented, or create a third one. And what happens when each of them chooses differently?
If you look forward to seeing more of the supernatural CloverWorks anime, keep reading. Below, you will find everything you need to know about Episode 6 of Tokyo 24th Ward or Tokyo 24-ku, including its release date and airing time!
Tokyo 24th Ward Anime Episode 5 Recap
Episode 5 starts in medias res, with Kokki, Ran, and Shuta trying to prevent a massive explosion without killing the perpetrator, Kunai, who happens to be Ran's misled childhood friend.
As Kokki works behind the scenes and Shuta dives directly into the crime scene - the cruise ship about to explode - Ran goes to Kunai's house. By hacking his computer, he finds that Kunai is the one who created the highly addictive Drug D.
Knowing his friend, Ran concludes that Kunai isn't a villain. Indeed, we find out that Kunai started off by creating an app that exploited the biometric element of the Tokyo 24th Ward smartphone equivalent. Through highly personalized music, he was able to relieve people of their mental or physical pain.
But with options in the shantytown being so limited, Kunai was soon misled into selling his formula to those higher up. They, in their turn, created a drug based on it. This drug, which completely relieves people's worries, can also make them violent. In short, Kunai's invention was exploited to increase criminality rates and give government officials a convenient excuse to gentrify the town.
Completely disillusioned, Kunai stands up by his belief that shantytown children can only grow up to be artists or criminals, and he concludes that he's destined to be the latter. Planting a bomb in the cruise ship where the gentrification of the shantytown is discussed, is his misled attempt to save his people.
Ran does all he can to dissuade Kunai from activating the bomb, but fails, so Kokki assassinates Kunai, believing that no other option is available. A few days later, the RGB are avoiding one another as their very different approaches have once again strained their relationship. Kozue approaches Shuta, telling him that the graffiti art about her father is still inspiring her, validating Kunai's opinion that Ran is a talented artists with the potential to be very influential.
