can someone tell me why in the 1st episode, Nio isnt sure which one is the target, Nio even suspected that the gift from Haru is a gps tracker...But in eps 2 suddenly Nio somehow is the host and declaring that Haru is the target, what the hell ?

and is anyone realize that haru's head is incredibly strong ? she withstand door slapped on the head and tokaku head but like nothing, haruki mention about Haru's hand that it's not hand that even did something bad, but how if Haru assasination method is not using hand at all ? like using poison, or even ...headbut xD

The last scene of EP 1 indicated that only Nio was informed who is the target.
I guess that Nio becomes the host because she was a student of that high school before "Kurogumi" started.

The whole series would have no reason for its existence then. It's true that if their only goal was to kill Haru they could just do it quickly and get rid of the job, but it's also a game.

very good episode and the plot is starting to get interesting. I don't know why but I suspect that Haru is faking it..

Seen it!
A lot of stuff that didn't happen in manga!

My hopes that they will take a more edgy direction have just risen up considerably!

This show is better than I thought it'd be. Timing for sound effects REALLY adds to the tension.

Not to mention, other than all the assassins being female, the reasons behind the story are surprisingly solid.

One family (who owns the school) wants to find the best assassin to take out the last remaining member of a rival family. I don't mind this setup, and it works great.

Well, it is called "yuri" because of romantic feelings the two female mains have for each other, but I don't think there will be much ecchi in this one. Stripping Haru to show her scars was NOT "fanservice".

It's no more "yuri" then Madoka.


Madoka doesn't have a yuri tag. This does. It is going to have more than just implied feelings, I'm sure. I hope so anyway. I suppose MAL could have just fucked the tags.

I'm still really skeptical on Mr. Mizoragi being a "regular" within class black. Azuma stated how he got behind her without showing any presence. It seems he's just hiding something for some reason in my opinion.

Also, I guarantee both Nio and Haru are probably telling the truth. Just different perspectives and what they want to believe of what happened.

I'm still leaning towards Haru is jut manipulating Azuma intentionally or not

He's just some guy, he really has no idea of what's going on and thinks everything is completely normal. Tokaku didn't notice him because she was too mesmerized by Haru.

Nio mentioned that Haru actually killed her family, truth or lie? I hope it's a lie. But if it was truth then this just makes things better.

This episode did feel a bit rushed. They didn't explain how Isuke was going to kill Haru.

Not too sure if I'm satisfied with the reason Tokaku gave to Haru on why she protected her. Maybe it's like, she woke up like that one dude who employed her said.
I believe that unless you know for sure that you don't like a concept, you should keep exploring it. Whether it be characteristics of people or a genre of some sort, you never know if you don't like it until you've seen quality work corresponding to that genre. Keep exploring until you've found something you enjoy, or something of quality. Then you know what's bad, what's good, and what isn't for you.

Please stop saying anything anymore, you are spoiling the fun and mystery that will probably keep some of us thinking. Let the people find out for themselves, would you?

Not a fan of this kind of series and characterization (still think they're try-hard), but I'll admit, Tokaku was pretty damn cool when she said she defects to Haru's side, the BGM was cool too.

P.S. Female assassin population = 100% so far. Why wasn't there any male assassin? Is it just a setting, or is there something else about it?

Spoiling what? Learn the definition of "spoiler" before claiming anyone's "spoiling" anything, would you?

If next episode doesn't pick up the pace, I think I'm dropping.

I just want to see fight scenes. Everything else is too ridiculous and not taken seriously enough for me to really be interested.

I annoys me how Japanese people speak in third person. Do they do that in real life? Or is that just a stupid "cute" anime thing, like saying "desu" or whatever?

Hmmm... gone downhill already.
6.5/10 for this episode.
Isayama Hajime should be awarded The Manga with The Highest Inconsistencies of Characters' Appearances.
He keeps performing multiple plastic surgeries on those Shingeki No Kyojin characters in a SINGLE chapter.
Yes, I've read up to the latest chapter of Shingeki No Kyojin manga.
Forced myself to read through the kidsketching chapters after the anime's ended. At least from now on, I only have to go through the hell once a month.
Patiently awaiting SNK TV/movie/OVA anime-sequel.
The 2015 SNK live-action movie would probably suck.

5/5

I'm a little puzzled, I'm not happy about this episode at 100%. Plot a bit hasty and poorly managed, I think.
Narrative that I do not like for a couple of doubts, but when you put anxiety lingers in showing the faces of the characters.
Oh my God, what are bad! ^ ^ "
Inukai is really sick ... O_o
Design that is influenced by a slight fall sometimes, even animations.
Characters not bad, but perhaps a little hasty admission of all in just two episodes.
I look forward to the next installment to better understand the mysteries not yet revealed. Haru still hides many mysteries ...

gosh so many possibilities and ways in which this show could go! i probably enjoy this more than i should, but who cares its entertaining... some of the characters have caught my eye but knowing my luck they won't get much screen time!

I find it odd the teacher has no clue what's going on here but he does seem a little naive !

Things are now getting more interesting.

Tokaku has found something to do. The assassins are now complete and most of them are really intimidating. Haru is the most intriguing giving her background and scars on her body.

Even thought the other girls would know Tokaku's secret, they shouldn't understimate her. I have a feeling her, if her scary form awakens, she can kill of them at once.

Her scars reminded me of vash's body maybe trigun reference. Still unsure about the 3rd person dialogue but I love the twisted smiles that the characters show off

Hope Haru shows some balls and doesn't end up the "happy-go-lucky" character. That would be annoying.

All students are introduced and I have hard time memorizing all students. I wanted to know who voiced Sachika Misawa.

Woah, Haru is not ordinary girl. i think she is strong imo and she said she is immortal.

More like a set up episode. The fun begins next episode I think.
