Lol, she can fire missil with her back.
Well the emo moment at the end was kinda annoying but overall it was a nice episode.

Wow...again, not what I was expecting. Wonder how long they can stay undetected.

What did she expect. They told her that she'd be a weapon, but she doesn't want to kill. I'm guessing that she didn't volunteer for this, or she wouldn't be complaining. It also looks like the other girl likes Shuji. I don't get the earthquakes. I thought they were just the bombs hitting the city, but I'm sure they'll explain it in future episodes.

Still loving the 2 character dynamic. It's nice that all the military people and war politics haven't been introduced yet.

Nice sexual tension too.

Urk...sadly to say, but I don't have a nick for this anime thus far. I understand that this is a romance-orientated war anime, so I had to deal with no-politics-no-war-backstory; however, the two-dimensional character development is seriously unjustified. For a romance anime, the drama is barely significant, and even when present (such as in the last scene), it is totally off and in the wrong place.

People be like - war - and no bad feelings about it; 40000 people just died off and as if nothing has happened...and what kind of nonsense in all of international and Japanese law agrees that human experimentation can be allowed and WMD be placed on young humans without consent from parents whatsoever?! Purely blasphemy - this transcends beyond a sin. It is just - wrong.

Interesting plot but the characters are so dumb and everything feels like a fake.

Not as good and a bit slower than the first episode but still really good :)

Dont care that much for the main characters.
I'm surprised they're just letting Chise roam free like that, when it's supposed to be top-secret and all ...

A lot of people died during that attack, and even more missing.

I quite like it! I like relationship between the two, mystery overall about what's happening...

The dialogues, scare, if we think, at the beginning Chise and Shu talk so blithely about things that are monstrously awful, then as the dialogues become ambiguous and equivocal, I felt a sort of fear, even though the designs were not as dramatic in their effect. Excellent soundtrack that reminds me, in some moments, anime series of the 80's and early 90's; the opening do not like much, compared to the ending.

This show is easy to watch! By the way, terrible OP song -_- well, that was my first impression. Lets see if it will grow on me.

When Chise back got missiles, i thought her weird and sick but if its Chise I can forgive her because she is too Kawaii!!!

Thats a turn off for Shuu when her body is like that.

This show is honesty terrible.

- Bad character designs
- The girl's body is modified by the military and even her family doesn't know about it!? Based on the description and her character page I initially thought that she had some incurable disease or required expensive treatment and her parents agreed to have her body modified in order to save her life or something.
- Fires missiles from her back!? Where the hell was she even hiding them, I thought she was a weapon not a magical girl.
- The moment she contemplates death Shuu-chan gives in to his animal instincts!? That was the worst part to watch.

Lol, the missiles dropping from her back looked kinda hilarious.

This was another really good episode. I just love the melancholic atmosphere and the unfolding drama. My only gripe would probably be the dialogues, they fall a little bit flat. So yeah, while I think that they could've done better in that department, it still doesn't diminish my enjoyment by much.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.
