Awww...Mugi was SO ADORABLE!!!!
Suskihotaru is to be feared...but her and Riken together are amazing to watch. I'm so envious of her. I wanted Riken for myself!! LOL!!

The sweetest episode yet and didn't feel at all phony or rushed. Quite a feat to pull that off so early in the show. And, how cute was that little demon girl and her, uh, whatever it was that spidery creature on her head...

This series has awesome development, pacing, characters and everything. Does anybody know how long it will be? It certainly deserves a full 26 episodes. (please, please, please, please say 26)

...can't wait for the first ED to be released, I just luuuved that song.

This show seems to pull me in the more I watch. I was hoping to see some more Zakuro but the other characters are important too.

At first I wasn't so sure how I felt about the animation since the colors are a bit dull, but I'm actually starting to like the atmosphere it creates! This episode was so cute. Everything just fit so perfectly, I can't even put it into words. Susukihotaru reminds me a lot of the character Kobato, and that's not just because she has the same voice actress, either. They're both so sensitive and gentle. I was really missing Agemaki and Zakuro's absence in this episode, but it's fine because I think I like this other pairing just as much!

It's quite possible this may be my favorite show this season. Bakuman and Shinrei Tantei Yakumo are also really great, but I think this show is just a bit of a step up on them because it's so freaking cute. ^_^

Been wanting an episode about these two from the beginning, and it didn't disappoint. Best episode so far, in both character and story.

Ahhh, can someone tell me who Mugi's seiyuu was? I know I recognise her voice, but I can't put my finger on it >.<;

I'm...pretty happy to have an episode without Zakuro, tbh. The less of her the better imo xD;; she's the only thing I don't like about this show, although she seemed a lot less of a tsundere bitch last episode and I hoep she continues like that. (Although, with J.C. Staff's penchant for tsundere...it seems unlikely.)

To those who use either Susuki or Hotaru, her name is Susukihotaru, which translates "the Firefly that resides in the valley of pampas grass" lovely name isn't it. anyways, not that anyone cares, unless you really love her!


Ok, I will type Susukihotaru beginning next ep., not just "Hotaru" , but the character page should change to "Susukihotaru" as first name (it is acceptable as there's no last name). I thought her name was Hotaru by that MAL character page...


Yeah, i noticed that too. in fact i sent a request for change. :P

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Awww... they make a cute couple, and they went leaps and bounds this episode.

I like this series because it focuses on the emotions, fears, longings of the characters; all have an interesting back-story (those that have had an analysis).

Also, I LOVE the use of colors in this show.

great episode and I look forward to next week :D

I tried to change her name on the character page but I guess a mod or whatever hasn't approved it yet....

Riken and Susukihotaru are the most literally perfect pair ever. I loved the little chat about how he is a man of few words, and how he would like it if somebody could read his mind instead. I just went, "cha!"
I think my heart just about melted out of my chest, too. Now, where can you find a) the ability to read emotions and b) a tall, broad backed guy who's pleased with that fact?

Haha, though certainly more voluptuous than Clamp's xxxHolic art. I quite enjoyed her character. Hope to see more of her.

This was such a cute episode, I'm so glad there was some focus on Riken and Hotaru because they are my favorites right now. Hotaru is so shy and cute, then Riken is the tall, dark and handsome quiet type (which is so my favorite male type in anime XD)

Can't to see more

Yes, MAL has her listed as her seiyuu but I'd have to listen again to make sure since it was a little exaggerated to make it sound more child-like.

And this show really has a different mood than usual, animation included. Fits it so well. And as much as people hate Ganryuu, you have to admit it'd be kind of boring if all we had was the stoic and perfect soldier and the scaredy-cat and completely useless in a fight soldier. At the very least he provides more variety, though I think people just tend to hate smarty-pants who always try to show off.

She deserves at least this much love! The character descriptions for Susukihotaru, Bonbori, Hoozuki, Riken-sama, Ganryuu-sama and Agemaki added as well.

This anime needs moar love. Thank you dear Mod-san for taking your time to change them upon request. :)

I can definitely said that this is the most boring show of this season, the only reason I keep watching is because of Zakuro and Agemaki, all the others characters are annoying.

While I completely agree with you, I think everyone has their way of enjoying something. i do know myself pretty much that i would be happier if the anime had less bonbori, hoozuki and ganryuu-sama in it. for more airtime for riken and susukihotaru (since they are my fav). not much worried about zakuro and agemaki, since those two will get a good chunk of airtime pretty much, since its obvious who are the main characters amongst the main characters. :P

Well, it's just that when someone posts in absolutes like "These characters are annoying" as if it's a fact, I see no reason to not post in absolutes in response.

True, I think more can be done with the blonde twins whose names I can't remember though.

I always forget Hoozuki's name, mostly cause Bonbori just kinda sticks more to my memory, that said I'm pretty sure episode 5 is their solo-debut.

BTW, I also had an urge to retort back to his comment, mostly because I really think people should add a little WHY they dislike it. I mean, I can see why some people might seem the series boring. The pace is slower, the characters act all cheery and polite to one another and generally the series has a slow pace and dull colors. I find it all adds to it's charm but it's obvious the series is not for everyone.

That said, when people just simply go "it sucks" at things, it makes it seems like they're trying to pick a fight with others.

This, exactly. People don't have to agree with me, but they could at least state their reasons otherwise why bother posting about it on a forum...it's not really adding to the discussion or anything.

Well, that happened really fast. They're pretty much a couple, now.

I'm pissed that the Ministry of Spirit Affairs is stupid enough to not let the army know what powers the girls have, though. Wouldn't it be better that everybody gets told during the first meeting so then they can make the best use of the girls? Geez.

This show continues to be average, with slightly better-than-average art. Am really only continuing to watch so I can say "I told you so" when Hanadate is revealed as the villain. (Annnnnnd to hear my bb Sakurai Takahiro.)

Really liked the devellopment between Suzukiotaru and Rikken here, and it's kind of clever to pair up a taciturn with someone with such power.
I'm glad that this entire episode was dedicated on character devellopment.

Ahhh, I don't mind having to say this week after week, but I LOVE this show, although I'm still not sure what caused it. Is it the smooth & soft animation, the pleasant atmosphere, or just the characters? All together they definitely make a nice package.


I feel the same. Certainly this show hasn't shown anything amazing or extremely thrilling until now but for some reason it's so lovely to watch. The art, the colors, the calmness, the characters, the warmth, all together make a very sweet lovely anime.

HNNGGG Riken.

I liked this episode much more than the other ones although the melodrama was a bit much at times. The whole Susukihotaru/Riken romance sends my heart aflutter ohohoh. Although it was a little cheesy when Riken was all "I'm a man of few words...read my mind instead" I still fell for it. Perfect shoujo moment.

The little girl was super cute. And I'm hoping to see more of Orikata in future episodes. She's so fine.

The lack of Zakuro was really refreshing. I'm already sick of her antics and we're not even at the half way point of the show. She comes off as a sue-ish tsundere to me and her interactions with Agemaki feel contrived. Overall, she's just a stale character imo.
