With the recent introduction of those working for Reiga, such s Cadenza in the previous episode, there's a sense of things coming together, albeit in the kind of stilted and awkward way that has punctuated most everything in this series. Yuki's continuing to take on the pain of others for himself since he's so empathic with them while those under Reiga are itching to start in on their plans so they can let loose with their powers and the pain they want to inflict. Or how they want to capture Zess for very different reasons.
The action does hit in this episode in a fairly decent way as Cadenza makes an open attack on everyone, with his first encounter being that of Kuroto and Senshiro. The two have been itching for a fight themselves based on what we've seen in their past so Cadenza arrives at the right time for just about everyone involved. It's a nicely elegant fight, much as you would expect for a show like this with breathless young men facing off against an older and more refined man who has quite the uniform. The two young men have the enthusiasm and drive to face a General Class Opast, but they don't have the skills to handle it and it goes badly for them as Yuki watches on from a distance.
