The official preview trailer for Episode 9 shows Diva attacking Yugo, who continues to address her as Vivy. Meanwhile, Matsumoto learns a shocking truth about Ophelia and her partner AI named Antonio.

In the previous episode, Matsumoto tells Diva how Ophelia’s suicide, which was a first in the AI community, left a huge impact on the history of AI.

He also explains to Diva that his current aim is to stop Ophelia from taking her own life. Ophelia is a songstress AI who just finished an incredible performance during rehearsal.
