Scarlet Nexus Episode 12 Spoilers

In episode 11, after Yuito and his allies show resistance to the official orders given to them and follow their own path, the New Himukan government brands them as traitors. It becomes increasingly clear to Yuito that he cannot stay in Seiran or New Himuka, so ultimately, following Karen’s advice, they decide to head to the independent city of Togetsu. However, he reveals to his allies that he gained his psionic powers because of the government’s experiments. Meanwhile, Kasane’s team is planning to go to Togetsu as well because the human brains used in experiments were brought from there. Although there is some resistance to the idea, Kasane, hoping that there may be some cure for Naomi in the independent city, decides to go there as well.

However, when they leave for their destination, the platoon gets ambushed by an Other. Luckily, Kasane’s team easily defeats it without suffering any casualties. They then meet priestesses of Togetsu’s local faith who reveal dark secrets of the corrupt New Himuka government, but Kasane refuses to believe anything. Strangely, she then allows her to enter the city alone while the rest of her allies wait there, which turns out to be an unacceptable offer to her. Soon a fight breaks out, and Kasane and her platoon are incapacitated. At the same time, Yuito enters the independent city with his allies with no resistance. In episode 11, Kasana and Yuito will finally confront each other in the independent city of Togetsu. The former may recall the words of the future Yuito and try to kill the latter.
