Darwin’s Game Episode 4 Recap

In the fourth episode, Kaname and Rein disable all the security cameras and rush to their hotel room to hide. But simply by considering the number of cameras that they have destroyed, the plant Sigil player is easily able to figure out where they are hiding. Even Kaname and Rein seem to be one step ahead and since they had already anticipated that they would be found, they had set up a trap. So to perfectly pull off their own plan, they intentionally try to attract the player to their room and while they are at it, Kaname uses his own Sigil to make a rope and climb out of the hotel room before they are caught.

As soon as Kaname reaches the security room, the plant Sigil player shows up out of nowhere and introduces himself as Ichiro Hiiragi. Soon after this, an intense battle ensues between the two of them and Ichiro uses his plant sigil to defend himself and at the same time, he also uses vines to attack Kaname. Kaname is left with no other option but to use his own Sigil to create bullets that can penetrate right through Ichiro’s shield. But this comes with a price and the bullets leave a heavy impact on the durability of his gun. Rein budges in later and interrupts their fight. She then asks Ichiro his reason for fighting and he responds by telling them that he is only doing to this to be able to support his daughter. All of his earning from the game will later be used for supporting his daughter Suzune.

Rein suggests that all three of them should join forces and work as a clan to win the game. And since the rings are mostly concentrated between clans, it’s the only way they’ll have a chance at winning. Realizing that Rin’s idea makes a lot of sense, Ichiro agrees to join them and with this, they form a small clan of their own.
