Nothing much happening but so refreshing to watch an anime that wasn't have a fan service scene every 5 minutes.

Definitely.

Mm, another informational episode. The blonde woman is interesting and the people she serves seem like typical political guys. Aah, the Engrish. Why do the actual English speakers they get to voice guys always sound the same? Not to mention awful.

Mikuni's got his hands in everything, jeez. Looks like Yoga took that talk to heart since he's coming back for a Deal. Also, Guild? What Guild? I don't want to wait until next week to find this stuff out. >.<

That'd be his economics teacher, not his classmate.

Beat me to it Hellicus, that was the Econ teacher ya.

And love the Engrish haha ... now I wonder what was said between Mash. and Yoga after that, as she must have known something was wrong shes not deaf in that card after all. - As for now though I think id rather be on my own side though I wouldnt mind the nice nee-san as an ally ;)

Well Allies or enemies I wonder if were being set up for a SBP (System Breaker Protagonist) *shrug*

Absolutely! Good to see an anime that focuses more on the story.

However...

I really hope this anime picks up soon. The pacing is pretty slow right now.

Also, I had originally heard that this was supposed to be a 11/12 episode anime. Is it supposed to be 24-26 instead? Different sites seem to be saying different things. Due to its timeslot, I don't see how it could run two seasons.

In any case, if it's shorter, I really hope the pacing increases so we'll get a satisfying buildup to the ending.

Wow I'm impressed that they got a voice actor that can actually speak English and sound pretty natural. I want to see more battles.

Backstory, Engrish, and a character introduction. Well, we haven't gotten his name yet, but it is sorta an introduction.

I was surprised too. First when hearing the woman talk, it sounds so bad, you think it's all going to be horrible, but that guys voice was really good.

As the plot thickens so does my interest, I wonder for what reason Kimimaro will choose to spend money.

obviously mikuni can't be kimimaro's dad, but they're definitely going for something with the very close hair and eye colors.

and they really should have gotten someone who can actually speak english to do jennifer's lines...

anyway, enjoyable. hanabi is annoying so i'm glad she wasn't around this time.

oh, and i wanted to give masyu a hug. poor thing.

oh oh, the thing about masakaki possibly being kimimaro's dad's asset was cool too. anything for more masakaki screentime.

Masakaki is pure awesome!! :D

And as to the storytelling, it starting to get similar to Durarara and Baccano.

The blond girl's role seems interesting. And the English voice was good.

I hope the next ep's deal is going to be better.

Edit: Rules of the Financial District.

That CGI... As ironic as it is, if this had a better budget it's be such a better anime.

I liked this, the execution was fluid and nicely done. Good set up for the 'SHIT JUST GOT REAL' stuff I guess.

Will keep watching, definitely. Plus it goes well with my Extension English area of study classes so 2 birds, 1 stone.

After three episodes it still feels like mostly setup, and I'm just waiting for the actual show to start already. It's interesting though and it does enough to leave me intrigued in what's happening next.

^ Oh , the engrish here was one of the best ones i've heard in anime.
CGI is really awful, good thing i got used to charcter design at least. But the story's interesting so far, and i'm totally enjoying this.

(Hi everyone, long time lurker first time poster here. :))

Anyway...
-In the opening, Mikuni is portrayed as the main antagonist.
-Msyu and Q are both young slim girls with horns
-Mikuni knows Kimimaro's father well
-When asked about Kimi's father, the reporter glances at Mikuni. Mikuni pays him money
-Mikuni has multiple assets.

That lady's boss spoke english really well, is he a native speaker I wonder? Seemed like he was just deliberately talking slow to allow non-speakers to keep up with the japanese subtitles.

O_O

that looks very suspicious.
if mikuni knew his father then, when before father died he entrusted his asset to mikuni. cause Q and msyu looks very similar and they seems to know eachother too. OR maybe he didnt even die yet but hes watching his son in the shadows. (but he doesnt look like that type father from the photo) whatever, we will see it when its over.

that is possible too because whats the reason why Mikuni is helping Kimimaro that much? could be that he feel guilty on killing Kimimaro's father and to pay it back is to make Kimimaro survive the financial district

Great episode. The new character seems to work in the International Monetary Fund which is really interesting. I wonder what's the criteria Masasaki uses to choose whoever is forced invited to go to the Financial District. A bit more was explained about the deals and I'm starting to like how it all works. Kimimaro also found out a bit more about his father and Mikuni seems to have been able to convince him to carry on with the deals. The IFM is worried about hurting the economy if they stopped the flow of Midas Money into reality but what would they be able to do about that anyway? I'm looking forward to the next episode and Kimimaro's battle against his teacher.

I agree completely. At first I kind of thought that mikuni was his dad or something along those lines, but I guess not.
And the english on jennifers part was horrible. The anime is alright so far. I can't get enough of the opening ^_^ thats probably my favourite part.

does anyone know how many episodes this series is going to be ??

the cgi isn't really bad but people are freaking picky. story is still pretty interesting, he'll follow in his fathers steps it seems. I guess that guy at the end was a classmate? interesting I didn't really recognize him.

Not that much action in this episode, but at least the story is progressing. Hopefully Kimimaro will get a grip and decide on something to fight for soon. Maybe his female friend?

Nothing much to comment really. This was more like manual for the series.
So the world banks know of the Midas money an they haven't move to stop them huh? I wonder why. There is some skim behind the whole thing i presume.

Agreed. Some people are just to close minded and/or obsessive.


Anywho, decent ep I gues. Was hoping to see the clash happen this episode though, rather then this randomness.
