18. The One Who Must be Forgiven Drowns in Darkness... The One Who Loves Him is Filled With Tears is the eighteenth episode of the 07 Ghost anime series. The original date it was aired was August 3, 2009.

The episodes of 07 Ghost were created by Studio DEEN. Directed by Nobuhiro Takamoto, the anime premiered on Chiba TV on April 6, 2009. The series uses two pieces of theme music: 'Aka no Kakera' by Yuuki Suzuki is the opening theme, while 'Hitomi no Kotae' by Noria is the ending theme.


After Teito has been knocked unconscious by the Wars, Hakuren Oak attacks Bastien, but doesn't manage to hurt him and instead becomes snared in Bastien's tendrils. Bastien reveals that he is a spy of Ayanami's, and threatens to kill Hakuren if Teito does not surrender himself. Teito lets Bastien's Wars attack him willingly, so as not to cause Hakuren harm.

Meanwhile, Labrador's predictions become worse and worse and he and Castor decide to take action against the intruders. The intruders are Kuroyuri and Haruse from the Black Hawks, disguised as an acolyte and a Bishop respectively, with two Imperial Guard imposters who apprehend the guards. While Kuroyuri and Haruse travel to Frau's cell, Kuroyuri notices something is wrong and Haruse leaves to investigate the greenhouse, where he is confronted by Labrador.

While Haruse and Labrador are confronting each other, Teito is imprisoned in a ball where a lot of Wars reside. Teito and the Eye of Mikhail begin to fight over control, which results in some of the Wars entering Teito's body. Zehel arrives, saves Teito and Hakuren, kills Bastien, and has a brief conversation with Mikhail, then takes Teito back to his (Teito's) room when Mikhail becomes dormant again. As Kuroyuri goes to kill Frau in his cell, the body in Frau's cell is revealed to be one of Castor's dolls instead. Castor appears and digs into Kuroyuri's soul, meeting Ayanami.
