THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Pretty wild episode. I still have the problem of Jin from being a kid to being a adult. The transition on both accounts is a fat NO from me. This is due to my curiosity wanting to find out WTF happened to Jin in between. It’s like as an example the frustrations of scholars not being able to know a part of Jesus' life missing. I want to know WTF happened after the monster fight till Jin is adult. Like how did Akemi raise him? How did he cope with his problems in regards to grandpa? How did grow up in that sense? I hope it shows in flashback mode at least.

About Konoha Amagi, I loved her grownup version in the following,

That face is so nicely done. Really good job in her adaptation and voice as she grew up.

Zet was sooooooo cool in the following,

That was the best of the episode. Just plain FIRE fight! When a fight is much better due to a spicier environment that being fire engulfing the whole place.

Despite the first letdown due to the manga changes I am quite pleased of them in this episode. Perhaps things are shaping up for the better in some changes from the manga version. I will leave it at that. Might edit later.

@Yumekichi: I guess you should really read it at some point, I can understand that they have to jump but this time it was too much.

I am very worried that people unfamiliar with the manga might not be able to follow the story, they cut a whole bunch of stuff together, it just doesn't feel cohesive but I trust them to get it right.

I do not like what they made with Jin's face and hair, it doesn't look good. Will have to wait when he is an adult.

I still hate this fact: Jin and Kouga did not meet in their childhood, they will do something with that which won't feel right. You know, in the manga Kouga was really impressed by Jin in that fire but I think they will leave that out.

That fight was great, they made Zet awesome, thank you.

I dropped the anime, there are many things that are removed and it hurts in the relations of the characters. I do not like the voice of Koga and Jin. (I expected much better)

Yumekichi11 don't expect anwser in the anime, They cut too many stuff

Pretty good fight with Zet. Since I haven't read the manga, I will have to make best of what's displayed in the anime even though the time jump was a bit much. I'm used to seeing time jumps all the time in anime so it's not the end of the world for me.

As much as I respect your IMO, I have to say I disagree with you. Perhaps I was not content in the first episode but as of this episode + getting used to it. I can see how to enjoy it and leave the manga. It just simply is not worth FRUSTRATIONS over it. My main reason for that are the fights indeed. With the gore and all it makes much better. Gore in terms of being animated such as blood splashes.

I see, guess I should refer to the manga for those.

Oh Jin you freaking badass. Looks like this show is getting better and better with each passing episode. 5/5

I like the grown-up Konoha...I feel like she's going to be an important character to offset Jin and Kouga.

Not having read the manga, I don't think I'm lost with the story, per se, but I'm very aware that a lot of content has been cut out and I wish it hadn't been. Episode 1 crammed too much into 24 minutes, and episode 2 skipped over the intervening years without any explanation. Right now, the story's a mess, but I'm willing to let it settle in before dropping it.

I can't tell how it is since I know the manga but if you got used to it, it's fine. Lets hope everyone can follow it and don't worry, players will make sure it gets gory.

The fight reminded me of DBZ, anyone else?

yea, watching the anime is obvious they cut out so many stuff out even if you havent read the manga. its really fast paced and skips alot. but from what little they show (out of a whole in manga) there is a coherent plotline that you can follow. im still po-d they killed "auntie" already. i thought she deserved more airtime and her relationship with jin. oh well

the biggest question is, why just 13 episodes? why not make it 26? that way they can explain more in-depth. the manga didnt sell good? anyway, i dont get too involved in the details of the "business" of the anime industry.

WTF you talking about? She could be tranquillized for all we know. They did not show what came out from the gun and only that it was shot. These gun can be made for darts. However if she is dead there shall be RAGE is all I can really say.

So far the only thing i really like about this is the gore and action. The pace seems really rushed and so much differences between this and the manga ruins the development between Jin and Kouga.

Im in love with the art style for the characters. I hope Auntie isnt dead...i liked her in ep1 and even the short time we saw her in ep2. I dont mind when a story is rushed a little because it can keep the hype alive. The fighting was good and everything shuld only get better from this point on

I think Kouga is going to be a super annoying character. He seems super naive, and he's going to end up stealing all the credit from Jin. I can honestly see Kouga getting super jealous of Jin.

I don't know, just making guesses.
