Fear kicked ass this episode, I'm surprised that woman survived 3 instruments of torture with just losing an arm, she also attacked Kirika with the drill but got her senses back when she realized she's a friend. She also nearly committed suicide but was saved by Yachi just in time and returned to her tsundere self. What an ecchi end to the episode, Kirika and Konoha don't like that.

4 Instruments used, 28 more to go.

5/5

9.7/10

you mean "extremely cute" Shes so awesome lol. And she picked such bad words choices to use after the other girls came in at the end, as expected of any anime. Why was the class president there though? was that the scheduled time to explain to her why fear is capable of using Gigadrill Breaker?

Kirika maybe is a cursed object herself that or some holy woman like a miko and the fact she stopped bleeding right after Fear's drill attack confirms one of those possibilities.

Was hoping for less censoring when it came to the gore, oh well.
Not exactly sold on the drama occurring, just didn't really convince me. Also not exactly sure why their fighting, hoping theirs a bigger reason then just opposites colliding.
But yeah, the drama is ridiculously forced, there wasn't exactly a build-up, or a reason on why we should care for the characters. There really wasn't much development of the characters to attach any sort of bonds towards them, it's almost as if they were trying to pull a Higurashi when it came to cute girls doing atrocious things.

Seriously, this melodrama, who confesses their love for somebody after knowing them for a few days
Shifting emotions too quickly, from melodrama to comedy, this makes no sense at all. Relying too much on the "dere" side of Fear, or the sudden "courageous" valor from the main guy.

Overall, I'm not sure where this series is heading. This episode wasn't annoying to watch, was somewhat enjoyable. But the enjoyability was mainly mocking how badly the drama was carried out, and how absurd some of the new developments are.
On a side note, the art is relatively simple, but still looks really good.

3/5: The episode itself was terrible when it came to characterization or building anything, but it was a good laugh.

Also needs more fan service and repetitive sayings/scenarios, seriously this series is seriously avoiding that.

Fear showed how unstable she can be but thankfully, Haruaki saved Fear before she was lost completely. Noticed there was some censoring of the blood and stuff but nothing too bad otherwise. Ending eyecatch was real nice...

A good episode. 4 of the 28 instruments used! The end was hilarious! I expected konoha to be there but Incho-san was surprising!

can't wait for the next episode!

It was 50% disappointed and 50% satisfied but now I have to go somewhere so I will say what impressed me and disappointed me very shortly for now. I was really impressed by the following,
ef4edd3b.jpg
This is due to the whole scene being in black and white which means loss of wanting to live at basically IRL suicide. A popular way so to speak in Japan and other parts of the world to kill yourself. The jumping off a cliff. That was well done with the BGM.

On the other hand I knew right away in the following,
0b218d0d.jpg
Of this being the Guillotine! Indeed that arm chop off was nuts but this is where I get pissed off at the following,
http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/4c25339a.jpg
http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/9534aee9.jpg

http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/e0cec453.jpg
Fuck you censors! Fuck you! I had enough! This time I get really pissed off! Censor the fucking ecchi OK! But to censor that? A arm that flies off and pisses out blood along with that Bitch bleeding out? Oh please Blood-C did far more even with censors. Yeah the ridiculous machinations of the censors continue to roll on my anger, which blew up in this episode at them. It really got irritating but when it cam to Fear’s body at the end, no problem at all. Guess we got to get used to it since 6 months ago that violence censoring is going to be more common.

The other thing is the following,
http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/47c4bc42.jpg
http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/d6a30924.jpg
Oh WTF! WTF? Iron Maiden as a robot? That is totally not original! I am disappointed Japan! I was expecting more of tools like that drill that pop out and Fear being drenched in blood but nooooooo! Of course not, it’s more a huge ass mecha that many other shows do. Not to mention the following,
http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/3d3d7412.jpg
http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/286402a6.jpg
Now where I have seen this pose? Ah yes here:
http://myanimelist.net/anime/3653/Kurogane_no_Linebarrels
Kurogane no LineBarrels is that you?

While of course the following,
http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/7096526a.jpg
http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/11ff19ad.jpg

http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/37ae7b7d.jpg
Sure shows people pissing out blood by being murdered and tortured but that is kind of lame then again perhaps it would have been too much for TV but really? Blood-C again reference it did the blood pissing way more and better not to mention not censored so censoring a lot of things in this episode was really shit./end rant!

Overall emotionally and dramatically well done but the fight with censors, I am sorry but it was really shitty to force myself to enjoy parts of it. None the less the fan service at the end and MOE kept some spirits up around more after the resolve. More later maybe.

BTW Image Stitches are done here:

Out of the 3 tools she used against the girl, 1 was a miss, 1 was blocked, and the final was a hit. The Iron Maiden, which was dodged, would've instantly guaranteed victory. The wheel was effective at doing what it is supposed to do, knock back. And the guillotine made it so the woman couldn't fight any more. Fear set up the wheel to guillotine follow-through nicely.

Fear is a cute idiot with massive power. It's an over-used character archetype.


Peaceful mixed with action ~ I wonder what the next episode has in store.

Fear crying at the end almost made me want to cry, but not that much, since whenever these kind of things happen, it always ends the same way.

There were a lot of scenes that reminded me of visual techniques from ef series (mostly when Haruaki was searching for Fear), just as expected from director Oonuma Shin.

Yup I noticed it too but WTF are trying with the mecha theme? Innovations? Well certainly it shows but as for enjoyment, not sure with me if that will be OK for this series. So far, it's a big fat NO for me.

Not much better then last week and seriously wondering why i am watching this.
The Ef effects look nice but don't really seem to fit in the characters seem to nice and don't really act surprised at certain changes.
And some seem to be unable to get angry.
Last 2 episodes looked to nice and kind while this one was way to melodramatic not to mention the fact that it's very predictable.

Fear was emo one moment and moe the next. The pace of this episode throws me off.
The fight scene was pretty epic though!

I guess the class president will become a regular? Interesting choice of skills to have. Guillotiene and the Wheel were my favorites.

It seems like this year is the blue-haired cursed year for both Shitbo &amp; Shin... First is Denpa, now this... I guess this is the first horrible show I've seen from Shin, as much as it pains me to admit this... Or maybe he's just unlucky for picking up a bad show with bad characters but then again, if that OP is his doing, then that doesn't sound very convincing as an excuse... Srsly, what's he trying to achieve? Those stupid hand gestures, girls spinning around in overused cherry blossoms acting cute when all of 'em looks generic as hell... At least the backgrounds and the cinematic effects look good and show that he hasn't lost his touch... If only this has good character design like Denpa then it may be more tolerable...

1st ep was bland, 2nd ep tried to add some srsness but failed to deliver. The main girl was a failure at the start so giving her a dark side doens't really compensate for her generic personality in the least... Glasses girl is butt-fugly and transforming into a yet-again-goddamn-katana-srsly-Japan?!11!! makes it even worse... At least the bitch-spamming antagonist is kinda entertaining but for giving me a trauma about visualizing Balalaika in a meido dress is so disturbing that I shall put this show on hold until my trauma is cured... X_X

I found the scene where Fear telling him "I'll give you the curse known as a cold" was really cute. She was about to break into tears there but the episode ends. I'm a guy fyi btw.

Anyways, just had to make this gif.

First episode was an abomination - both in story and looks
Second - well it was that WTF factor
Third - well looks are better, this I can tell :) but story - today theme: They are running!
He from left to right, she from right to left and than... well he finds her (how?!?).
But the last part
how she turns from homicidal-emo-killing monster to bubby moe-ball - it was... it is hard to describe it.

the series joins my happy drop-box
but I think I will watch it next week - for if it will go to direction of ep1 (which would be weird) or will be similar to ep2.

Well that's was better than the second one, but Like Alex say, Still can't tell if this show is good or bad, come on, first episode was kind of wtf, second was trash, but this one had a real good feeling on it, more torwards the end.
Let's see what's happen next episode.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I don't know if it's the fault of the original light novels or Silver Link, but can this show just please calm down and focus on providing something substantial--like character development that isn't completely forced? Just hear me out for a second...

First of all, Fear states that Haruaki is "someone [she] loved," right? So, how is it that now is the only time in all of history that she seems to have ever been anything more than a cube? Did no one else at any period of time ever bother to touch the cube? Were they just scared? Someone must have touched it at some point (thus, revealing Fear's human form) because Haruaki's dad shipped it to him from wherever; not to mention, it isn't as if Fear is crazed and violent upon her release from the cube (i.e., she's stealing food from the guy's kitchen in the middle of the night completely nude, and all she does in response when he finds out is act tsundere). Also, how long have they been together? A few days? And she falls head-over-heels for him just because of a few kind words? Give me a break.

Secondly, is this guy a saint or what? In pretty much a single heartbeat, he forgives a walking death machine for attempting to murder him; he never gives it a second thought or any sort of query as to whether or not he's okay with this, either. Honestly, who cares if she's all emo afterward? She tried to kill him--and with torture devices, no less~! Even if one were to decide to stay by Fear's side in the end, I would think that they would consider their options.

I'm not saying that this show is necessarily terrible or not, I just wish it would calm down so plot points like the ones I've stated above can be properly (and better) addressed~

Blood-C again reference it did the blood pissing way more and better not to mention not censored so censoring a lot of things in this episode was really shit./end rant!
Overall emotionally and dramatically well done but the fight with censors, I am sorry but it was really shitty to force myself to enjoy parts of it. None the less the fan service at the end and MOE kept some spirits up around more after the resolve. More later maybe.BTW Image Stitches are done here:<a href="http://myanimelist.net/blog.php?eid=178715">http://myanimelist.net/blog.php?eid=178715</a&gt;
Fear is nice but the Bitch was not so bad with her underwear.


Aw, for the moment there I thought Fear is gonna go for the guy.

LOL the way jump to the ocean was epic xD
And those after credits.... buahahahaha

I get the feeling of SHAFT (slow-mo followed by bullet animation, to that unconventional camera work followed by awesome monologues) but still the art quality is not there.. still awesome show so far.

Pretty awesome fighting! I was wondering how she was going to fight using torture devices, which mainly rely upon their victim being immobilized, but she's pretty creative with those tools. A lot of them seem to be mecha-like in their design, and she has both trap-style attacks and big sweeping blows. I look forward to seeing more fighting from Fear :D

The ending was hillarious, Fear and the hero so need to get it on ;) Too bad Masamune'll be spying on them and trying to make sure that doesn't happen ... without her getting a piece too.

... Need that doujin :P

In terms of the censoring, I have to admit, I didn't even notice. I thought it was just the art style.

I think the real curse is the anime itself ._.

So was Fear created with a personality/individuality at the beginning, or did it develop over the centuries of use made of her? There is a Japanese term for objects that develop anima (spirits) over long term use, but I don't have the time to scour the internet for it right now. My guess is that the second alternative is probably the case here, as it seems that Fear's knowledge of the world and relationships is missing a few key pieces. Konoha also appears to be in a similar situation as a "cursed" sword. It is unclear whether their "human" form is a property that is inherent, or something that happened when they came into the possession or were touched by Haruaki (possibly as a result of his power over cursed objects). Also did anyone else think Kirika's eyes were glowing red when she was attacked by Fear? I wonder what that means?

In any case things have turned around considerably since the first episode ecchi fest (not that it is totally gone). However I still feel like I'm missing a half an episode's worth of character development and explanatory backstory--particularly as to what the organization is that the main charcters are going to be fighting for at least the next few episodes.

This has improved enough to be worth watching, but I wonder how many people dropped it on the first episode without giving it a chance.

Well seems to be an interesting story, the censore is annoying, but at least it's not a light that is over a ~80% of the screen, that's more annoying...
