A recap episode told from Hige's perspective using footage from the first three episodes as well as episodes seven through eleven.

Some scenes add a voiceover from Hige, sharing his thoughts on his life in Freeze City, meeting Kiba, and their time with Cheza.

It ends with the pack meeting with Blue in episode twelve.


  • Hige: I've gotta admit, the reason I decided to stay in this city was 'cause I caught wind of something. I never smelled it before, but I knew what it was: the scent of Lunar Flowers. To be honest, I don't really have that much to complain about. I can always find something to eat, as long as I'm not too picky; and even when it's freezing, which is pretty much all the time, I can handle it. The only thing that kinda sucks is the total lack of girls around here. But on that one particular say, I felt it alright. A dangerous but amazing scent was calling me, I just couldn't leave it alone.

Trivia Edit

  • Hige's monologue at the beginning of the episode is the only time his voice is used as narration.
