Kemono Jihen Episode 11 Spoilers

Episode 10 shifts back and forth between Akira’s childhood in his snowy village and present-day Tokyo. Akira’s twin brother Yui comes to Tokyo to look for him. He runs into three drunken delinquents and turns one of them into a crystallized ice statue, horrifying the other two. Meanwhile, Mihai mends the plushie that reminds Akira of her brother and even adds an A.I. inside.

During a flashback, it is revealed that yuki-onokos, like Akira and Yui, are born once every hundred years. The residents of Akira and Yui’s native village believed that the yuki-onokos are tied to the village’s survival. The twins’ mother apparently died during their birth, while their father had been kept in a cell and eventually lost his sanity. The twins planned to escape from the village together and go to Tokyo. They had heard about Inugami and wanted to meet him. They were eventually separated, and Akira came to Tokyo alone and started working for Inugami.

In the present time, Akira runs away from the agency because he feels he is useless. He runs into Yui, who builds a colossal ice palace for them to live in. When the media begins reporting on it, Inugami arrives with Kabane and Shiki. Their first meeting with Yui devolves into a confrontation. The episode ends as Akira discovers that his brother has frozen Inugami and his friends. In episode 11, Akira might have no other choice but to fight to protect his friends.
