Damn, how many times are they gonna show us Keita naked? -.- My eyes, my poor eyes...

Pretty boring episode, imho. I really hope the show will get better once they're in Okinawa but right now it doesn't live up to the first episode and the plot doesn't seem very interesting.

Looks like they're screwing around with the order of the episodes as we're getting into the assassin arc. I have no clue why they are rushing through this and butchering the story. God knows why they are doing half these changes as all of them I've seen has been for the worst. I can't even imagine what they're going to change in Okinawa. This really has been a fail of an adaptation.

My thoughts exactly... don't see how they can incorporate the assassin arc now. Why did they have to mess up the order of things? It also really made no sense that Kuro didn't know what an Exceed was but still managed to come up with a name for it, whereas in the manga all Mototsumitama know what an Exceed is

and Kuro actually educates Keita on the different types of Exceed.

They even got rid of Keita's 1st Exceed throw up (-_-).


All I can say is that the best part of this episode was when Keita got punched in the face. Hope that knocked some sense into him. ^_^

I wanted to write something close to that, so that's basically it. Bad fighting scenes and very weak script overall. Dropped too.

This show isn't that bad. The manga was clearly much better, but the anime adaptation is still better than your average shounen action anime.

I like Excel & Steiner. They are much more interesting than Kuro and Keita.

Is the fight finished in this episode? I was planning to drop this series after the fight with Excel and Steiner and wanted to know if they stretch it out into episode 6.

EP 5 was quite bad.
But I will not drop it yet.
I will watch ep 6 and then I decide if I will continue watching.

I love that a second after not knowing what exceed was, Kuro had a name for her Falcon Punch. The transformation and attack sequences are so stale that it's beyond laughable and into the sad territory.

Loli and Pedo-guy of course stop right before they kill Keita and Kuro, only to be invited for tea and scones like nothing happened previously. Ridiculous.

I expected that Steiner have a good exceed and better synchro with Excel than Kuro and Keita have; the fight scenes were awesome. I'm glad that Keita had a good reason to help Kuro. I'm more interested in this series, and I am looking forward to more.

It's because this "adaptation" is fail. In the manga Keita attacks Steiner because he and Excel said they were responsible for Mayu's death (the loli that got hit by the truck). Kuro backs him up so it becomes a fight between the two Mototsumitama (see manga chapter 15). The anime writers are trying to keep the fight in the story even though they removed all the plot that supports it.

Is it just me or does this series get lamer as it goes? The fights are always really boring and remind you of a cheesy shonen anime.
I had actually really enjoyed the first episode of the series but, is the story after really this boring?

It was fun seeing Kuro wasn't rigged, and now I know that contractees can actually do something besides syncoring with "thousands"

Hmmmm.... This series is already looking average at best. This may be a hard one to sit through.

Keita needs to grow a pair and grab a pistol or something. He is really ticking me off.

Fav fight so far why people r having a problem with this series i have no idea if people would stay away from manga until u know there isnt going to be an anime or at least watch an anime without judging it bc it isnt having events by the manga u would enjoy anime much more but most people dont do that n that is ur problem other then that so far this series is okay not a great anime yet but still good none the less.
