Kemono Jihen episode 7 was released yesterday, and it was one of the most interesting so far, especially since it was so personal to one of our main characters. In  Episode 6, Shiki decided to face his past trauma and enquire about his missing mother. But is he going down a darker path? Here's all you need to know before an episode of the supernatural shōnen anime is released: 


Kemono Jihen Overview and Episode 7 Preview

Kemono Jihen

In Kemono Jihen, the main character Kabane is taken in by Inugami, a detective specializing in the occult, and befriends Inugami's other wards, Akira and Shiki. All children and Inugami himself are Kemono - human-beast hybrids - and their job is to resolve tensions between humans and Kemono. 

In episode 7, Inugami and the boys go on a trip to meet Shiki's uncle, Akio and find out more about the fate of Shiki's mother. The man - a scholar interested in the occult - appears to care about Shiki, but when he claims his sister-in-law is dead something seems off.

Shiki tries to appear strong but being back in his hometown the memories he had repressed return to him and finds he remembers differently. It's revealed that Shiki's mother - a spider Kemono - submitted to horrible experimentation to gain money so that Shiki would be able to live in peace as a human child. 

As a young boy, Shiki saw what happened to his mother, which left him deeply traumatized. Akio then separated Shiki from her, hoping that Shiki would forget the event. But this is not all: Akio was the one who facilitated the experiments, trying to produce precious spider silk he read about and using Shiki's mother as a host. 

Shiki is determined to kill his uncle and Kabane promises to help him. The boys have killed before, but not someone close to them. Will they actually go through with it? Episode 8 can't come soon enough!
