Shadows House Episode 2 Recap
Shadows House is a 12-episode supernatural anime is based on a manga series of the same name, written and illustrated by the duo Shoumatou.
Emilyco's main duty is serving her lady, Kate Shadow, a young shadow girl who looks exactly like her - in terms of shape only, of course. Already, the premise looks unique and we're excited to find out more about the house's secret and the nature of its owners.
In Episode 2, Emilyco meets Mia, who teaches her cleaning techniques and makes friends among the other living dolls. However, when she and Kate are found outside, Emilyco makes an unsettling discovery; Mia does not seem to recognize her or acknowledge her presence, since she's with her Shadow master, Sarah.
Mia perfectly imitates Sarah's movements and mirrors her feelings. The duo bully Kate and Emilyco for being unable to do the same. As if that was not scary enough, Sarah mentions that their lord "grandfather" will discard Kate if she doesn't merge successfully with Emilyco. Our two main characters leave in disgrace and Emilyco is more curious than ever about the house's sinister nature.
