Scarlet Nexus Episode 9 Spoilers

In episode 8, Arashi promises Kasane to help her find Naomi by gathering crucial intel. Meanwhile, Yuito and his allies find Nagi, but he refuses to return with them and forces Luca to teleport everyone back away from the hospital. Later, Major General Fubuki reveals that the hospital brainwashes people, and they did it to Nagi because he saw Naomi’s metamorphosis, who was turned into an Other.

The hospital researches psionic under the New Himukan government, and they have found a special substance that can transform anyone into Others. Furthermore, he also informs that the government wants to eliminate Yuito and, before leaving, lets Luca answer the question that others may have since she already knows a lot. As expected, she tells her friends there that Fubuki got engaged to Alice Ichijo, the daughter of OSF hospital’s former director-general. But she was soon turned into an Other.

When Fubuki investigated the matter, he found that the New Himukan government had managed the experiment that ultimately led to such a horrible discovery using which anyone could be turned into a brain-eating monster. Yuito’s allies also learn that his father was the center of all such operations. Meanwhile, Kasane, along with her allies, infiltrates a facility looking for Naomi. They later find her but are disappointed to learn that she is an Other now. But to keep everyone safe, Naomi requests everyone to leave and advises Kasane to forget her.

Karen reveals that she can still be turned into a human being using Kasane’s psionic powers, but when Arashi asks him about the strange ampules that are being used on Naomi, his answers shocks everyone. In episode 9, Kasane and her allies will learn more about the ampules. Meanwhile, the government may begin to put its evil plans into action by using them on Yuito.
