I was waiting for the Inga skull (?) transformation at the end there, LOL. But it didn't come, which made it a bit more interesting, I guess. :P

I love how that brown haired guy blushed when Inga transformed. :P He's so unemotional otherwise.

And what happened to the novelist guy's mouth at the very end of the ep? O_o Melted and sealed over or something? And how?

At first, I had really high hopes for this anime. I expected it to be a really in depth mystery story and it didn't meet those expectations in the first 5 episodes. BUT the series has gotten increasingly better lately! The story is becoming much more interesting. This was a well done episode. However, I would much prefer if the story would get more plot twists and that the cases would get much more complicated. I really like this mystery of this "novelist". I'm looking forward to seeing how this one unravels.

Needs more Inga though. I want to see who he (or she) really is.

Next episode better be good!!

Actually is not that insulting. Well Bleach has gone to much down the train for me to defend it but what if i said that some normal shounen is better? Will it be insulting?
The thing is that i find the comments and the defense for Un-Go exaggerated. Is like people want to praise it as masterpiece simply because it isn't another moe or shounen anime and not because it really is one.
It seems like we have thirsty people for senien who got seek of all the industry going moe, fan-service etc and now they are ready to praise anything with a serious facade even if it is just mediocre.
I'm not saying this show is bad and the last episodes have been quite intriguing, but seriously, people act like they never saw or read any good mystery and this mysteries seem godly to them when in reality this anime isn't really worth all that praise. Nothing horrible but is mileage away from being close to a masterpiece. Just because it's a little serious it doesn't mean that anyone who urges for serious anime should give it credit that doesn't deserve. It started with really mediocre episodes and just got to some quite decent ones at the last three. Nothing more than that. So i can't see why a decent shounen can't be better for example.

i dont praise it because it snot a shounen, i praise it because its got a unique charm and feel to it that i just find myself enjoying the show so much that these 30 min each week go by in a flash,

and bleach has gone way farther than just downhill it got pushed out a fucking plane without a parachute is what happened, and i love shounen, its just bleach is awful there is not a single redeeming quality about the show at this point.

also i dont think anyone praising this since it isnt moe since pretty much everyone in it is.

Eh. I do like Un-Go, particularly recently, though I think episode 6 has been the best episode so far - 7 & 8 were interesting and cool, but for various reasons I don't think they were quite as good. Do I think the show is the best thing since sliced bread? No, but I've definitely been intrigued enough to want to see where it is going and I like the characters. On the other hand, I did give up on Bleach after the 4th episode - I just couldn't get interested in it or the characters. I didn't think Bleach was crap either (at least, the first 4 episodes...), just not all that interesting.

I wish the earlier episodes were as good as this one,only thing that made me lol was the fact that nobody finds Inga strange still..like that scene with Hayami *I'm not gonna let some kid inside!* *but how about a women?* S- Sure!.

No one thought it strange that Hayama, the police prosecutor's assistant, mentioned that guy in the cult who made his followeres see what he saw or whatever? That guy is bandaged up and appears in the ED...

So. I'm guessing the last 3 episodes will involve that guy, Benedito [the Kami], Kaishou and the chick in the ED who we saw in like episode 1, but was never explained who she was.

Well-wrapped up arc.
And what's more is that it's not done yet.
Can't wait to see how the last eps will deliver.

I ask the same thing before and forgot that it was just an illusion. =,=
It was grass instead of book in reality.

From Inga's disparaging attitude towards the Kami, it appears that she is a much more powerful entity so it will be interesting to eventually find out just what she is.

Once again we got a view of just how authoritarian and controlled that society is. The female prisoners were incarcerated in the private prison for a variety of information and thought crimes (visit a couple of websites--go to jail). It appears that the authorities have taken the Kami in, probably because her talents are useful to them.
Please don't feed the trolls!

oh yah did anyone else feel kinda bad when you find out who the girls really are and why they were there? i felt really bad afterwords.

also i love how no one(including me) has brought up the scene after the credits where the cop guy points a gun at rinroku saying he always takes her. ive been saying this guy is going to be evil since episode 1and god damn it i swear its going to happen

This anime is turning out way better than I was expecting after the first couple of episodes. Seeing Inga own novelist boy was satisfying.

Under the goods section of the official website, 4 BDs/DVDs are listed, with episodes 9~11 on the last one. 1 cour noitaminA anime are usually 11 episodes; BRS is airing in January so it couldn't be a 2 cour anime.

if it plays out the way i think it will where kaishou(i spell that right?) turns out to be the mastermind behind it all im expecting this show to just steam roll for the last episodes, i mean if you didnt see the hints that hes evil yet than you must have dosed off at one point, or just rewatch epsiode 6, he was full on creepy in that

Hmmm... it looks like that either the police guy or that Kaishou guy is still in a illusion, or something different happened.
Should this really be like the final arc? I don't expect that they'll make another end arc in episode 10 and 11, since at least episode 9 will continue this arc and it's no good idea to put together a last arc in just 2 episodes. I'm curious what they'll put it in such a short time. On the other hand, a 2nd season would be better.

Nice ending, everything became crystal clear with so less information! But yea I thought hey wait she didn't ate much souls lately, good that I kept watching after the ED! They almost forgot him :p

Good episode I liked this small 2 episode arc was quite interesting!

The start of the show made me doubt it might get better, but it rocketed off at ep 7. Love it. Inga always intrigues
"Urushibara Ruka. The mannerisms and voice of a woman... No... More feminine than any woman. But he's a guy. Taller than Mayuri, but so very thin... But he's a guy. Looks great in a miko outfit... But he's a guy. It's already twilight And yet, it's so hot. The cicadas are crying. But... He's a guy."

I'd be lying if I said I didn't like this episode. The illusion was greatly pictured. The blend between the truth and the supernatural was so well executed, that this title is able to prove its own authenticity and uniqueness. Additionally, the question over the extent of Bettenou's power. Like what Inga said, she is a god...now I have to watch the movie after this, episode 0. That's what UN-GO is about, a supernatural mystery Anime! 5/5.

Really loved how they used overlay text to reïntroduce each character as their respective illusions lifted. That was smart.

Seigen, he actually was the hero of this episode as he figured out it was Bettenou who was behind it.

And what happened to the novelist guy's mouth at the very end of the ep? O_o Melted and sealed over or something? And how?


Curious about this too, did Inga actually kill him again?

I wonder if the "there was no war" actually applies to the actual war. Perhaps the whole war was a creation by Kaishou & Bettenou.

so was the whole prison hypnotized or just a few? We also got a hooker,hacker and terroriest as our 3 female prisoners. I wonder if they will make her term longer since when she killed the guy she was basically tricked into it. Must of sucked for those girls to have reality kick back in. I mean they were actresses in the fake world now they know they are in jail. well guess the teal hair guy is over with and the magical girl with him is the true villain. Im still confused how this souls thing works.

Okay as much as I had no idea what was happening last episode this episode totally made up for it. These two episodes have certainly made my favorites.
