I hope they get that Moral guy soon. He's a bad news to everyone..
Looks like Art found him though. Now that I look at him, he reminds me a little of Makishima Shougo from PP. This guy really has some guts. Poor Art ;.; RIP?! ;.;

Interesting backstory. Everyone except police guy, who doesn't get power, and the girl with spy power left.

What?! He wants to save that guy in mind because of being alone by having the power himself. Oh, no!

Well, I expected Art to die, kind of, but still... That was awful. :(

Why are inspectors always so stupid and go alone to places where they expect to find the murderer?

I can't take extreme violence, I might drop this.

Poor Art. He was such a strong character to have been okay being friends with Nice when he didn't have a minimum. I'm so glad he didn't give into Moral though

I really love the episode! But...why Art?!

Him not being a minimum holder makes him a strong character...but now I'm scared since the next episode preview still sounds so cheerful. For sure Moral will use Art's appearance...

I expect Art to suddenly trigger his immortality or rapid healing minimum or whatever. I refuse to believe he's dead considering there's a good chance the brain Moral stole is his brothers so he might still be relevant to the story.

Speaking of which, is Nice wearing the dead brother's jacket?

I get this feeling as well about how Art will suddenly become a 'villain'. I don't like it :'(

Another ironic thing is that Art had to die beside his brother's tomb which is extra painful as it is already </3.
I swear, this episode is not good for the weak hearted

The change in Moral when Art said no to Moral's offer. Also, what was the ''good deed''? Maybe Moral knew what Art's power really was and helped him unlock it by seemingly killing him.

That bastard, he destroyed the purity of the kawaii idols! Those fans did everything right, I would have hit him also.

Nice + Hajime-chan, to see them together is always funny. Actually first time, that i saw Hajime-chan sharing her food with someone.

Moral want to gain the equality to be on Nice's side, on the other hand Art thinks that he can stay friends with Nice without holding a minimum.

In the end, R.I.P. Art, was an unexpected outcome, that he would die in Episode 7, Let's see, what Nice is going to do. Though I'm not sure how he will react, Nice always seems to stay calm.

From the time moral revealed his power I knew art was in deep s***. I just didn't expect him to die. I expected Nice to arrive just in time but when he called instead I knew he was dead.

I think this episode bumped this up from a 7 to an 8 for me. I'm hoping for it to start picking up seriously now. Less small cases and more focus on moral.

Wasn't that a variation of the ending theme, Hikari by Murasaki's VA?

Art wasn't my fave but he was an amazing character!! Even without a Minimum he was brilliant!! He was on equal terms with the rest, if you ask me!!! God, I was crying for real!!! I didn't expect it and I'm still shocked!!! Why did he have to die....I don't want him to die...it's not fair, it's way too tragic! I'm not exaggerating here - his friends were all Minimum holders, yet they were able to preserve their friendship, he was always helping them, always looking out for them!! Not to mention that he had a fight with Nice right before that and I bet he was dying from the inside because of that!!! TT______TT ART!!! NO!!! YOU MUST LIVE!! Damn, that Moral!!!

I really hope so....don't know how possible that is but I really really hope that's the case!!! Judging by the fact that he was there when Art was a student at the Academy! But at the same time, Moral didn't seem that willing to let Art live!! :|||

Anyway, I can't help but wonder and get even a bit angry at Nice being the central figure in this anime! It's a bit annoying that everyone's concerned about him....why is he so special...I like him, but...that got Art killed for God's sake!!!! T.T

Right now I'm way too overwhelmed to comment on the other parts of the episode!! Most tragic episode so far!!! Made me burst into tears!!!! TT______________TT

Been a while since I've seen a main character die. Hopefully Art remains dead, it was a good death, although, I have a feeling at the moment of his death his minimum activated and the reason he was never able to use his minimum before is because his minimum's requirement is for his heart to stop beating so Art will probably live.

I'm pretty sure that was the ending theme so it was "Hikari" by Wataru Hatano.

Man, this was probably the best episode of the series. That ending was really surprising and bloody. I thought Art was going to accept Moral's offer.

Even though I say this is the best episode so far, I think this show overall is mediocre. This show going to have to pull something amazing if it gets anything more than a 5 from me.

Everything starting from the graveyard scene was absolutely amazing. Great directing and use of music. Loved the ED playing in the background. But, everything else...Somewhat jumbled and not very memorable. :/

Art is dead!?!?!?!?
Oh, my gosh, I totally cried. I'm such a cry baby. This episode, it was a fight for me of if I like Moral or not. Don't get me wrong, I really love him. This episode, him talking about wanting to save Nice was amazing. It was one of the type of things I love. But the faces he made, were sorta...sorta...just...ah, a turn off? Yeah, but I guess I still really love Moral. I also love Nice, the solitude of being at the top. I really don't want Art to be dead, I really love him. But still, if somehow he does live, I'll probably be pretty annoyed cause his death was so epic, so tragic, and if it gets changed, well, some of the epicness disappears. Yeah, I'm not making sense.

I was super happy when the epi came out and was so sad at the end TT ^ TT RIP Art, love you <3 You could tell he was going to die so I was like half prepared for the feels but then Moral just had to kill him in the worst way possible D: Like, stab him, on a flipping grave, then don't let him answer the phone, and then shoot him? Whyyyyy .・゜゜・(/。\)・゜゜・..

On the bright side, Hajime fed Nice and it was so cute > w <

And that is where Murasaki's anecdote comes to place...the frog who can only jump, and the bird who freely flies in the sky. The bird is innocent, yet it hurts the frog who can only crawl on the earth and jump.

As for why Nice is so special...I want to know, too. Information about him is classified, adding to the effect of how he is handled differently from any other minimum holder. Plus he is the top scorer.

As for me, I'm more intrigued about Hajime, since everyone had an episode of small bits of their past or background except Hajime and maybe Murasaki.

BUT AAAART!! ART!! WHYYYYYY?! Damn it! Moral, I swear if you use Art's appearance in disguising, grrrr.

Maybe I haven't been paying attention but... Seeing as how this episode showed some of the Minimum Holders time at the academy. How come Hajime, Three, and the Cat Girl weren't there with them, Where exactly did they meet?

Damn, Moral is one scary guy with his obsession over Nice. The ending of this episode was amazingly well done with the music playing in the background and Moral's final speech to art.

It was a very sad ending that left me crying. But, I loved the way they killed Art, very dramatic, saddening, how it was a cliff hanger, the phone call, etc.... Just they way they killed Art off had a huge impact..... Still, very upsetting on how they killed him, I have mixed emotions on how they killed Art and the fact Art was killed. Art was one of my most favorite characters.

I wonder by what moral mean by "good deed"? Did he reveal how Art's brother died, getting rid of Art (a nonMinimum holder) from Nice, telling Art the secret of why he isn't a minimum holder, what the forbidden minimum is, or something else? I would like to hear your opinions.

Given how dramatic a death Art was given, how won't come back to life. But i heard some think he is still alive with an awakened Minimum. I hope that is true, maybe bring him back by the second last or the last episode. Art will reveal he is alive and helps Nice when he is in deep trouble..... Well that's what I am hoping for anyway, I really don't want Art to die.

....I wonder how Nice will react to Art's death, or how he acts when facing Moral. If Nice hears Moral's reason for killing Art and Minimum holders, will he fall into depression blaming himself or attacks Moral with uncontrollable rage? How do you think Nice will react?

art is death and that is damn painful but wouldn't his comeback also kinda ruin his last moments as well

I just hope they find him in the next ep and not that moral is playing around with his body or takes on his identity to get near nice

I feel like they're trying to bring up a so-far subpar series by bringing in a fantastic villain, but it won't work unless the rest of the series is as good as that ending
