    …and, this anime is still rated G for kids!
    As for Nanashi, his end goal is still unknown, but we can start predicting what he’ll do next. In episode 12, he directed malice into Mana’s right palm, and the symbol for Ki(木, lit. Wood), appeared. In this episode, Nanashi was able to mark Mana’s forehead with the symbol for Hi(火, lit. Fire). This makes two. In episode 2, Medama-Oyaji/Daddy Eyeball said that the star mark is the flow of the "five elements" that make up everything (and that an upside-down pentagram represents a connection to hell). Again, for whatever reason (likely related to the scenes of the blue-eyed woman being chased shown in episode 12 and 19), Nanashi wants the "five" to gather in Mana, who is the "hollow vessel." Since he marked Mana’s right palm and forehead, he’s probably going to go for the left palm and legs to draw a five-point star using her body with the remaining three elements (Water, Metal, Earth). This whole Nanashi thing is new and original to the 2018, so it’s still foggy and unknown. He’s not after her friends, he just seems to be gathering malice.

    With all this Nanashi stuff going on, reminder that GGGnK’s major arc starts on Episode 27! It will have at least two episodes, but with all that promotion and hype they’re kicking up for it, it might be longer and I’d hope it will be. We’ll also be getting a new ending starting on that episode. It’ll be sung by the same person currently singing the opening, and it’s called "Mienkeredomo Orundayo (They’re Invisible, but There)."

    LOL, as you already figured out from other people telling you, yeah that was Mana getting the second symbol. Also as Riza already mentioned before me as well, Nanashi seems to be placing a curse consisting of five elements, thus gathering "five in her" (interestingly he’s going by Chinese five elements philosophy, as Japanese five elements apparently go by Earth > Water > Fire > Wind > Void, while Chinese go by Wood > Fire > Earth > Metal > Water. And all of them form, yeah, you guessed it, a five-pointed star in a circle. Like Daddy Eyeball mentioned ways back in episode 2 when he examined the arrow Kitaro was shot with – the arrow was marked with a five-pointed star, representing the elements of nature. But when flipped upside down, its meaning changes and it invokes a connection to Hell. Another interesting thing to note is that the five elements also have to do with medicine: Wood = Liver, Fire = Heart, Earth = Spleen, Metal = Lung, Water = Kidney. Though they can be connected to other things as well, such as seasons, feelings, directions, taste, sensory organs… So it’s not clear yet what kind of event allows him to place one. Is it just gathering substantial amounts of malice, or do any other conditions need to be met?
    This episode very much advanced the plot and gave some context to the "Tree", or rather now it’s clear it actually meant "wood" character he placed on Mana originally. I’m very interested to see where this is going next :’D (And also whatever the hell he meant when he said he wated to consume Kitaro cause that was creepy as hell xD) But before that, a short break from Nanashi antics, as he doesn’t seem to be in the next episode and then we have the Western Yokai coming up :’D It’s going to be a blast, I can tell.
    Also LOL yeah, the buildings slideshow thing. A familiar abridger would’ve said "Help, I’m being chased by warehouses!" My thoughts were exactly the same as yours when I saw the fight scene. "Ooooh, so this is where the animation budget went." :”D
