Important things that happened[edit]

Present Day
  • Shouichi's memory returns.
  • Mana deciphers Yukina's letter, revealing Yukina was controlled by an unknown power to compose the letter.
The Akatsuki-gou event
  • Shouichi discovers Yukina's letter addressed to a man named Tsugami Shouichi (currently known as Sawaki Tetsuya) during his cleaning. So, he takes a trip aboard the Akatsuki-gou ferry to find the man.
  • Suddenly, the ferry is caught in stormy weather. The white clothed Mysterious Young Man appears in front of the passengers and warns them about the upcoming danger. Then, he bestows his power to the passengers.
  • The El of Water appears and attacks. The power within Shouichi awakens and transforms him into Agito. In his brief fight against the El of Water, Shouichi is defeated and is knocked into the ocean.
  • The El of Water curses the rest of the passengers, saying that death will soon fall upon them if their powers awaken.
Contents of Yukina's letter
  • Long ago, there was a battle between the powers of Light and Darkness.
  • Defeated, the Light side unleashes his power in the hope of humans using it for their future battles against the Darkness. He gazes upon the sky, watching his power scatter across the world as he dies.

List of Guests in Agito

Song Used[edit]


  • This episode reveals Shouichi's past as well as explains all the mysteries of the series. Truly 42 is the answer to life.
    • All the Akatsuki-gou members are seen together in the same episode.
    • The flashback in this episode reveals the first time Shouichi turns into Agito.
    • During Shouichi's first battle against the El of Water on the Akatsuki-gou ferry, he is defeated and knocked into the ocean. This answers why Shouichi was found unconscious on a shore with amnesia.
    • After cursing the passengers, the El of Water lay dormant in Sekiya Masumi. This is why it emerged within her in episode 33.
  • On the Akatsuki-gou, Kino is reading a book with a Russian title: Modern Medicine - The Human Body.
    • Later on, Shouichi asks Kino to take a look at his letter, assuming he knows many languages because he's a doctor. Perhaps Shouichi saw him reading the book with the foreign title.
  • At no time in the flashback does the viewer see Shouichi say his name to the other passengers. Since it would be Sawaki Tetsuya at the time.
  • Akatsuki means "dawn" in Japanese. This episode reveals that this incident is the dawn of all the storylines that happen in this series.
  • In the flashback, Shinohara Saeko wants to quit her job and run a shop selling miscellaneous objects, acting as backwards foreshadowing for her future. Later on, she ends up withdrawing from the world only to go lake diving to collect random objects.
  • When Sasaki Aki is accused of being a murderer, Shouichi stands up for her and says she doesn't seem like the type. Later on she becomes a murderer.
    • She also reveals she was studying to be a nurse, explaining how she was able to take care of Taiichi so well when he was sick.


  • Kino Kaoru "You saw the young man, right? He was dead! Many people die in my line of work. ...but most people die without regrets. Humans should live without regret. Living how they wish. Your life isn't limited by other people... in actuality it's all yourself."
