10. That is But One Form of Atonement is the tenth episode of the 07 Ghost anime series. The original date it was aired was June 8, 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.
Teito and the others attend Mikage's funeral. Back at Hohburg Fortress, Ayanami tells Miroku that now Teito has the Eye, he is dangerous and should be killed. Miroku dismisses this and tells Ayanami to keep it a secret.
Meanwhile, Teito decides to leave the church but he meets Castor who asks him if he saw Zehel. When Teito reveals he knows it was Frau, Castor puts him to sleep, while back at Hohburg the Black Hawks prepare to retrieve the Eye of Mikhail. As Castor gets ready to erase his memories, Frau interferes, saying that if Teito's memories of Zehel are erased, he will forget Mikage's last smile. Frau and Castor argue for a short while, after which Frau coldly tells Castor to "Do what you want." and turns to leave.
As Frau leaves, his scythe goes out of control and tries to attack an unconscious Teito, who awakens as the god Mikhail. Mikhail then uses illusions to try and threaten Castor and Frau but the two are unharmed, with Mikhail realising that they are both parts of the Seven ghosts. Castor tells Frau that the collar on Teito's neck has three commands: Bind, Sleep and Pain. Frau puts the god to sleep with the sleep command. Teito regains consciousness and is taken to a place showing Mikage's last words.
