I wonder on what purposes they created Grimm character?...He's acting good now..but sometime I feel he's creepy deep inside. More important finally russians appeared in this tv series...

I wonder if Grimmer is going to be a friend of a foe. But the way he helped the kid shows that he is has a good personality.

I wonder if Grimmer is really a good guy he acts like he doesn't know but he really knows.

Grimmer seems like a nice guy.

despite being tricked by that scammer, he doesn't mind it for some reason :P

man i'm glad Tenma is being easily identified in the episode. there's not really a lot of Japanese people during this period other than business and foreign interests.

so Grimmer knows the director of 511 Kinderheim ^^

slow episode since we just finished the library incident.

i hope they move forward the plot more!

The introduction of yet another fascinating character. I really hope Grimmer gets plenty of attention, it seems like he's going to be an intriguing one.

every second episode in monster is useless

Unfortunately I find this to be extremely true. Alot of people seem to like throwing the word "filler" around

Given the way this story has been carrying itself, I think both "useless" and "filler" are inaccurate. Slow and careful build ups, character introductions, and plot development is exactly what's making this so addicting and why I've enjoyed nearly every episode so far.

what?? am i watching the same show? lol

tenma won't refer to himself as a doctor anymore because he shot someone that would have otherwise killed him? that's self defense. my prediction is by the end tenma's character will develop to where his actions can be twisted and worded to make him the "monster", but unless it somehow turns out that johan is tenma in some form, i won't be satisfied with that conclusion.

i wonder if grimmer's fairy tale comment about prague an the end is foreshadowing a piece of johan's history that took place (in prague) referenced in the picture book. excited to hear about the 511 director

I really should watch Monster more often.

Grimmer seems like another potentially fascinating character. He seems to be a good judge of character. Given his comment to Tenma that he can tell the difference between who's really innocent or guilty, I don't think he was scammed in the train station. Beyond that, he seems somewhat pleasant, though there must be some sort of drive for him to be investigating Kinderheim.

Tenma's reaction is pretty realistic, although it was only self-defense. Shooting someone is a traumatic experience; though his guilt may be ill-founded, it's understandable. I just hope, as vibskov above, that the narrative doesn't end up framing Tenma as a monster for his actions. He's done nothing wrong up until now.

It was a very interesting episode.
