What Happened in Episode 7?

In Dark Gathering Episode 7, Keitaro, Yayoi, and Eiko visit the S Tunnel to capture a female spirit. After some trial and error, they supposedly capture her and drop Keitaro off at his home. Unfortunately, the female spirit tricks our characters and captures Keitaro as soon as he heads to bed. Yayoi catches on when she and Eiko arrive home.

This urges them to visit Keitaro’s place, so Yayoi can properly capture it. Yayoi captures the spirit and explains the situation to Keitaro in the morning. She reassures him that he’s been helpful to her (so far). Keitaro leaves but receives a phone call from his boss about a new student he’ll be tutoring.

The episode closes by giving us a scene of this student packing her belongings. 

We’ve covered the entire episode with a lengthy recap that touches on all major plot points and discusses the chapter with an accompanying review. You can find that link below.
