Summary: Yako attends a live comedy performance but the show comes to a halt when members of the audience laugh themselves to death.
What a surpise. This episode is a whole new story created with elements taken from other stories in the comic. At this point, I think it’s safe to say the animation will continue to diverge from the comic. It’s like the production team is rebuilding the story from the ground up. Don’t mind since the animation version is superior to the comic in terms of storytelling.
Yako is all alone since her father’s death and her mother’s off on business. The only one who can see through her happy act is her friend who’s concerned about her.
The detective team gains a new member, a ghost in the wall of the office. It communicates with them using it’s hair but it’s not confined to the walls. The OP clearly shows the ghost’s braided hair acting as an antenna on Yako’s cellphone. The braided hair’s haunting range is unknown atm. In the comic, the braided hair appears as far as her school where it pops up between the pages of her text book and indicates (points to) Neuro outside.
Neuro’s hair ornament acts like a mystery receptor. Think it’s like a sensor that can detect places where a mystery will take place.
Neuro uses more 777 Tools of Hell called called Evil Friday and Evil Comedy.
