In Dark Gathering Episode 8, we get introduced to Ai Kamiyo, Keitaro’s new client.

After receiving some spooky premonitions, Yayoi and Keitaro head for Ai’s apartment. 

Yayoi confronts Ai’s brother’s spirit, who happens to be strangling Ai to help her escape fate. Her brother’s spirit ascends, resulting in Ai wondering why her brother wanted to kill her. Yayoi and Keitaro spot a photo in her room. Keitaro notices Ai’s star eyes have returned. Yayoi realizes the spirit they caught earlier was a godly one, who branded Ai with the star eyes.

The spirit escapes Yayoi’s plushie and leaks its energy to attract more spirits to Ai’s apartment. Yayoi calls Eiko. Eiko arrives and receives a great explanation of everything that’s happened so far. Yayoi asks Eiko to drive them home but Keitaro leaves to use the bathroom.
