Plot Summary

Kuro is on lookout
Kuro is on lookout

At True Cross Academy, it is hot outside. Rin eats ice cream to cool off. At the bridge, Kuro stands guard as a guard switch place with another guard. When the guard asks his friend about the cat's dead master, his friend tells him to be quiet since familiars can revert to their demon forms upon losing their master.Yet, Kuro hears the whole thing. At Yukio and Rin's dorm, Yukio works on his studies. Rin arrives from the store, and he asks why they do not have air conditioning. Yukio asks Rin about his mineral water, but Rin replies that he has forgot it. Yukio looks with disappointment when Rin reveals that he has bought two ice cream. Rin looks at the hierarchy of the exorcists, and he is only second class above page (Exwire). Yukio explains that he is middle first class. When Rin asks him how long it will take for Yukio to become a Paladin. Yukio explains that only one person can be a Paladin, and he points to Rin that he will not get any missions. Because Rin cannot follow orders and relies mostly on Satan's powers, using his body as a shield, Rin can turn into Satan's son for real. When Rin refers their father as old geezer, Yukio asks Rin how long he will stay in his rebellious phase. Yukio tells Rin to act as an adult. Rin asks him how long Yukio act like an adult since Yukio has captured Shiemi's heart. Yet, Yukio thinks bringing up Shiemi is not relevant. The argument ends when Yukio tells Rin to use his head which prompts Rin to knock Yukio's glasses to the ceiling.

Rin laughs at Yukio. Yukio gets mad until his cell phone rings. He brings his spare glasses from the drawer, and he heads over to the bridge. Yukio brings his father's thing, and despite Yukio's warning, Rin follows him. Rin hears Kuro's words for a moment. Rin learn that Kuro is his father's familiar. Yukio explains about Cat Siths which are demon possessed cats. Long ago, Cat Siths protect silk from rats. As time changes and silk production ceases, Cat Siths are no longer necessary. The temples that honored Cat Siths are torn down. This causes the Cat Siths to get angry which causes them to attack humans. A female exorcist explains that Shiro Fujimoto befriended Kuro without hurting it. Yukio remembers that his father gave him something which he thinks is aq special grenade.

Back at the bridge, Rin hears Kuro's words about wanting to see Shiro. When Yukio says that he will kill Kuro, Rin tells Yukio that he should not kill it because it is lonely. He asks Yukio if he can persuade it. Rin wants to prove that he can use his head. Rin introduces himself to Kuro, and he tells the cat that Shiro died. As Kuro charges at Rin, Rin holds his ground and bashes his head against Kuro's head. Rin tells Kuro that he is the same as him and offers him to make peace. Yukio remembers that his father did the same thing that Rin did. In Yukio's flashback, Shiro offers cat nip wine to Kuro. In Kuro's flashback, he remembers all the good times he had with Shiro. This causes Kuro to cry and to shrink.

Above the bridge, Mephisto asks Amaimon about Rin. Amaimon is not impress, and Mephisto asks him if he wants to bring out Rin's true potential. Before Amaimon does that, he heads off to learn more about Japan. Back to Kuro and Rin, Kuro notices that Yukio is holding a gift from Shiro. Once Yukio opens the bottle, he smells catnip. He pours catnip for Kuro. Rin comments on how amazing his father was which Yukio asks him. Rin denies he has said anything. Rin proposes a toast to Kuro and their father with Catnip. Yukio pours catnip for Rin which Rin drinks. Despite Yukio's warnings, Rin gets an awful taste.
