Can't wait to see where this is headed. Kinda sad that Yakumo was born because his mother was raped which I think that also may have added to her stress which may have lead to her trying to kill him. However Haruka was kinda pethetic falling asleep in like 5 secs. If she wanted to call her mom why did she keep the lights off and jump on the bed?

You never went a few days straight without sleep have you?
When you do that you just end up so tired that your in your bed and a sleep before you know it, and when you wake up you end up asking yourself when you fell asleep.

So that reporter was the fiance of Yakumo's mother and was trying to help Haruka, he certainly is a mystery.
Haruka's mother being Yakumo's mother savior sure is irony, i wonder if Yakumo knew about that.
And Yakumo's fate is dam harsh, being born from rape is just to cruel.

ok, i was right about that ghost in the video being yakumos mom and about that dude following haruka to be that takeda shunsuke guy. just thought i might gloat a little ^_^ but im also wondering wat made yakumos mom try to kill him, i mean he would have known if she was possessed and i doubt she would care for him for a few years then just snap even if he was that guys son and also the dude with 2 red eyes warned goto be4hand so mayb watever hes about to do to yakumo he did to his mom and she lost it. just a theory....

and btw wat exactly did that crazy lady do to yakumo??? his wounds look like stripes but thats the place were she zapped him to...POOR YAKUMO!!!

Yakumo must have extreme knowledge of the city if he realized that there should have been a train running by. Though, I think the series is quite interesting at the most. Hopefully they should answer all of these questions.
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

Poor Yakumo...his entire existence is just totally fucked...so not fair.
I really like Isshin! He seems like a great uncle.
Can't wait for the next ep. Hopefully we'll find out what Takeda's true identity is since that crazy lady said that she knows it.

Good episode. We found more about Yakumo's past. Yakumo seems like he was beaten with a whip.

Yakumo sure turned out well despite his past. Guess his uncle played the major role here. If the uncle would be younger I would totally fall for him.
*clears throat*
Wonder if Yakumo's mom is still alive.
..so Haruka (still don't like her) and Yakumo were meant to be >.>
Interesting cross wires between the characters. Looking forward to more episodes.

Well this was't half bad, even though the story rushing in feels kinda forced. At least there's some development.

But seriously, Haruka should so look like she does in novel, in anime too...

I seriously love the development happening in this show. Now we just better hope the next episode will contain more of the development we needed.

[offtopic] Nordkohl, exactly why didn't you drop it before then??? Whatever, I'll probably end up having to wait the day after Nordkohl just to get subs.[/offtopic]

Laaame. Nordkohl was out faster than everyone else.... oh well. FFF for me too then.

That aside, excellent episode! Lots of character backstory ftw<33

lol this was probably the first episode of Yakumo I found actually entertaining. I hope it keeps up like this.

How stupid can Haruka be, falling asleep in a time like that? All she had to do was pick up the phone and call her mom.

Just a quick thought about Yakumo's Mom trying to kill him and all.

I don't think she did it because she hated him.
I think she tried to kill him because she knew something BIG was going to happen to him later on when he was more grown up, and that is why he tried to kill him.

To save him from misery, rather then cause it.

xD Too bad for that plan.

Decent episode, although it was mostly exposition that was only kind of interesting. I'm actually disappointed that the bad guy is Yakumo's father, seemed so obvious I was expecting things to turn out differently. Guess not!

Hopefully things pick up with the next episode.

Somehow, when Yakumo's uncle crept up on Haruka like that, I was half expecting him to kidnap her or something for some reason. Must've been that knowing smile he cracked.
Ahem, anyway. Nice episode.

I don't really go by any specific fansubbing group, but I did notice that the ones in this episode seemed unusually off. And I didn't read everything in that link, but the first sentence says people got upset with the racial slur from last week. I find that kind of funny, because people were cracking jokes about the "N-word" being used, not being all "OMG dem bad guys used DAT word."

[Edit: The episode 8 I watched was done by Nordkohl, so since the subs seemed off to me anyways, I guess I won't miss them for that.] :P

Anyways... this episode seemed kind of slow to me compared the the last ones. It wasn't as enjoyable for me as the previous ones, either. Which is kind of weird, because this is the first episode I haven't found that much fun. Oh well. Next week should be good. It looks like we might get to see Haruka's mom, too.

i thought the episode was slow too and i think it was because yakumo wasnt there, same with last episode. the show just isnt "psychic detective yakumo" without yakumo and if u take out yakumo and goto then its just haruka......which is just.......bad

I have tons of questions after this episode.
What happened to Yakumo's homeroom teacher?
Which one is the real father? Shunsuke Takeda or the bad guy?

Anyway I love the development. :))

No Yakumo or Gotou this episode but they managed well without them.

i thought the irony was sort of uneeded, they could of just had some other random person save her, and send letters. However we get another rape this season, poor Yakumo. I guess the moment uncle started wearing the red eye was that scene, wasn't very emotional though.

This show is one of my favorites this season and the plot is moving along nicely and I can't believe all the shocking developments from this episode. I can't wait to see what happens in the next.

Takeda is dead and a ghost, but I have a feeling it is more than that.

Haruka, I'm not surprised that she fell asleep; seeing how retarded her character already is. Just another stupid thing she did; she did jump into the water on her own.

This episode and 7 were better paced, hope they keep it up.

Still can't stand Haruka, but the other characters make up for it.

Love is filled with mystery

Late watching FTW
Anyways, so ... another OK episode I guess. God, the whole story about their mothers and "tied together with strings of fate" or whatever? I HATE stuff like that -_-" If this wasn't a one season anime I'd have dropped this already >_< Plus, it's way better when you're not ONE THOUSAND PERCENT CERTAIN the characters aren't going to die -_-"
That being said, mystery was OK ... that random Yakumo mom's fiance guy = wtf? Wow, is everyone super smart or something? I mean come on ... -_-"
Hope this anime starts getting better soon, because the "mysteries" I signed up to watch aren't there

I like this series very much. I read the manga then the anime came out. Didnt expect such an outcome. I personally like detective-type animes... This is one of the best that I have watched. :D

I was disappointed that they made Ozawa's mother conveniently rescue Yakumo's mother and become friends with her. It just seems too contrived. Lame.

I have to say, I feel kinda bad for Yakumo & Gotou..Having to rely on the Scooby Gang to save them--that can't be a comforting thought. :\
