The beginning with the leggless begger and the bag of crap was very weirdxD
Even understanding its an illusion later doesn't undo it awe of weirdness...

I totally thought it was the other guy creating another illusion. I wonder why he didn't just kill Kurou right from the start.

At the beginning I was confused as to whether it was a flash black or not @_@, glad they cleared that up, but did the turtle and vine woman originally have the power to control what he does so to speak? I mean for the woman controlling vines she stopped him from attacking and had enough time to act but then he broke free @_@, so I'm getting a little confused

And looks like I was wrong about Saniwa being Kuromitsu.

Since he isn't immortal, I guess... he died. Back in the 1000s or so.
They are neither plants nor animals.
They differ from other forms of life such as the micro-organisms and the fungi. Instead they resemble the primeval body of life and are generally known as Mushi. Their existence and appearance are unknown to many and only a limited number of humans are aware of them.

That was a trippy episode...

I wonder if this series will ever make sense at all...
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

He may be immortal - at least he was allied with Kuromitsu's enemies. Remeber episode 2? Benkei may actually be the Red Emperor.

EDIT: Did anyone else feel that the whole 'reenactment' scene was kinda wierd? Kuro finds Saniwa all messed up, then the person who did it appears outta nowhere. This creepy person then offers to present a play-by-play of the 'battle,' to which Kuro agrees, even hunkering down and clapping his hands. >.<? WTF

Would love that :).

Nice episode overall, except the Kuromitsu's entrance who was a bit random.

Felt very short, but it was a great episode. Really liked the whole illusion part.

Short yes. But I think it wasn't that great.
It was okay though.

Wow, I got totally mindfucked this time. Don't know what to think of the relation between Kuromitsu and Kurou once again (and if this was really Kuromitsu he saw in this episode...).

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

I felt the same way. I ended up doing a double take because I thought I was seeing things. The whole shit part was weird too. The slow-mo of the drops of fluid falling from the bag towards Kurou and him dramatically diving out of the way was funny.

I'm talking about the dodging shit part, of course.

Very original episode. Great appearance of Kuromitsu and rather nice action scenes.

It would have been average but the beginning and the act of the vile woman were very original. That's impressing for a change.

WTF pretty much sums up this episode. It wasn't boring though, far from it. Also, we seem to have a plot now.

Easily the best episode yet. It still had its flaws, but overall this was a really fun one to watch.

this anime is really toying with my mind and sanity.. I think the old turtle man killed the ivy woman and just generated the whole Kuromitsu thing just to lure Kuro to the Red Castle.. Or I've completely gone mad :P

wtf did i just watch?... one moment he doesn't know who he is, the other he has flashbacks, the next he's tossing shit into a river... i'm still trying to figure out that whole kuromitsu chopping his head of flashback which he didn't even react to when he saw her. for some reason i like this anime though, even though some stuff is confusing

Well that was a weird first 10 minutes of the episode.
Thankfully it became clear what was happening.

Anyhow, seems we're getting closer to the "end boss"

The bag of shit was epic. No two ways about that one. Next up was the reenactment of the the death by the vine lady ( a sort of Poison Ivy). That one was a little strange but folks who hang around with plants all their lives are a tad off anyway. Then we come to Tutor the Tortoise....he be trippy. Next up.....time to storm Ironforge.......I mean the Red Army.

I had to rewatch the clapping hands part just to make sure that it was Kurou...that was just so weird, it didn't even feel like I was watching Kurou. I'm guessing the turtle guy and the ivy lady both had some weird hallucinating effect on their opponents. The only way I could explain it, anyways.

The bag of crap was definitely a memorable scene. If anyone decides to ever ask me about this anime, I would have to say that this is what I remembered. I really thought that it was some sort of trap that's why Kurou dodged it so dramatically, but I guess not.

I can't help but wonder if Kuromitsu is pulling the strings. She's probably ancient, and bored. Kuro is her amusement. We will see...

I don't follow the threads I post in. Message me if you want my attention.
