Bloody, but still good....

"Yes, Aki finally loses his mind and turns into, what the Mikage call, the 'progenitor.' As soon as he turns into the 'progenitor,' he kills his grandpa and sets off to find his woman; Aya(just to remind you, he looks like Aki, but his body is taken over by else). By the end of the tape, a girl named Miori introduces herself as Tooya's girlfriend from a year ago. Tooya is confused by what both Miori and Aya says, but goes with Miori, breaking Aya's heart. But is Miori who she says she is? Or is she just playing with Tooya's amnesia? More plot twists, a little more blood, but still a great series."
Drama anime style.

"The progenitor has to be one of the better of the Ceres dvd's yet. In Relic of the Mikage, the original mikage has to some extent gained control over Aki in the same manner as Ceres has to Aya. However, unlike Ceres , Mikage is unwilling to give his host control back. Leaving Aya to come to grips with it.
The return of the First, is a continuation of the Mikage assuming control. And causing a trigger to Toya's memory near the end
Toya's past is one of the more touching episodes to date. Afterall, Aya has a double? no wonder there's confusion. It also gives Toya's story( we finally learn how old he is! ) which is intersting with all of it's drama. Casting uncertainty on the relationship between Toya and Aya. It does leave one to wonder if it is true or another of the Mikage schemes.
I gotta say I have watched this dvd more than any of the other's simply for these episodes. I think this is definatly a must-have dvd."

"This volume of Ceres WAS a bit strange. Aki's mind finally snaps, and the progenitor of the Mikage family emerges in Aki's place. "Aki" squeezing grandpa Mikage's face after becoming annoyed with his rambling. (Yes, he did die o.O) Later, Aki sees Touya and Aya kissing, then kisses Aya himself. (Very un-brotherly!) Later, Touya and Aya meet a girl who's just a spitting image of Aya. Touya gets smacked by a car, then remebers his past, but he forgets all about Aya and the present. The girl they met is supposedly Touya's old childhood friend, and girlfriend. What about Touya and Aya?"
