** One of the stories in the second series' ninth episode has a scene of Kino completely losing her cool over the fact that staying at a country Master recommended required a MindWipe of having been in the country in the first place. Even more frustrating for Kino, Hermes remembers everything (as the drug used only works on humans) but promised not to say anything about it.

* RevengeMyopia: Kino meets a woman and the man she had hired as a guard as they're about to set out on a journey.
