Such a brutal, and mixed emotion episode. I felt bad for Kanade and her firned who both got ejected or at least Kanade's friend was but we can assume Kanade got ejected. They melt when that thing on their back is taken off which was sad to see her die.

Kuroha was very cute this episode. Can't read kanji, do math, but she can operate a blending machine which she used ti blend cake for Kana who is paralyzed. Oh and Kuroha singing was so kawaii ^^

I kinda liked Kana in latest chapters in manga, and then the anime version is more lovable with such voice acting.

how did kuroha fill out the school form if she really can't read?

Believe it or not this plot in-consistency gets answered

well I'm gonna assume her paralyzed friend helped her since she knows how to type on a keyboard.

i was thinking the same thing but that raises the question regarding how the blond girl knows how to type on a keyboard if kuroha claims that the witches never had a proper education. of course that would mean that we would need to learn more about their pasts

Good episode , I was sad seeing that girl get ejected I never watched EL because it was way to violent but hope i can handle this one so far it isn't as bad from what I heard . I think where I watched it , it was censored maybe because I did no see her turn to bones after she got ejected like someone said on here before

Nice episode. So Kuroha does not seem to be able to read as well.
Kana sure has a dirty mouth and they both get to something else besides grass.

I like the balance of it's dark moments and some funny moments in here. Though it was intense when a witch got ejected and turned into a slimy body, f*ck did she have to die like that?

Kana was pretty interesting in here, but sad that she has paralysis.

Looking forward to more of these dark moments in here.

Interesting episode. Kinda gave off Elfen lied vibes but it had less dark moments.

Kuroneko and Ryouta's past was cute.

Ryouta should just confess to her already that he likes her.

The death flags are already building up? It's just second episode. T_T

*Facepalm* Kuroha! XD But that part was funny lol.

Damn, this is too cruel. Kanade getting killed like that. Ugh... If this is gonna end like Elfen Lied (a high possibility that it will) then I'm so gonna rage at this. Kuroha needs to surivive. T_T

Ryouta is indeed a good MC, at least he's not your typical shounen lead being oblivious to the feelings he holds towards Kuroha.

I wonder what was that nosebleed all about?

Kuroha is so adorable humming the songs, dat Risa Taneda voice totally fits her.

What a roller-coast ride of feelings this episode was
That ejection scene really gave me the chills, just like the OP when I saw it the first time

I'm really liking this anime so far, potential for best of the season tbh

Kuroha is so cuuute!
I'm guessing she saw a witch before (probably the alien she said she saw) and got turned into one. :( Well, that's sad

Hmm This series seems to have a mix of Action, Comedy and Darkness, quiet an unusual combination. I would guess things will get more serious and dark as the story continues.

Looking Forward to next week's episode.

Yeay! Next episode!

I can't believe the number of times Kuroha changes her mind.
That reaction when they get decent food and the first thing they get is the cake. xD
Seriously, though, how'd they get a keyboard that enables speech to work?
Then again, this is anime, so anything can happen.

Poor witches.
So, they just disintegrate just like that if they get ejected after all.
By the way, the nosebleed at the end that made Kuroha unable to go to school makes for a cliffhanger.

Looking forward to next episode!

The show is getting distinctly darker, the Elfen Lied parallel becomes even more apparent.

It's also fun to know how a power witch like her doesn't know the timetable or Kanji

Some of the best I've seen this spring season, if not the best. Not just the same old. same old. I must admit I was somewhat skeptical when I saw the title and read the plot. It was only because it showed up as sci-fi I gave it a try.
Both of the first episode has been exciting, with good speed on the emotional roller coaster especially here in 2 Ep. I know what I'll see next week!

Kuroha's personality still feels all over the place.

Guess if you pull out the thing in the back of their neck, they melt? Lolwut.

Kana-chan's voice seems kind of realistic... I think? I'm pretty sure everyone who read the manga had a feeling of a more robotic voice.

Loved that ending, really nice cliff hanger.

I think the ending song really fits well with the series.
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.

Eh, i enjoy everything besides the MC.He is so persistent that its kind of...annoying.
When Kana blushed and screamed over CAKE i lol'd, not even sure why, but that was so cute xD

For now its a good start, hopefully things will get even better because i can see potential.
I dont enjoy opening as others do tho.I mean, visually its nice (before random episode scenes start to show up), but music is not my thing...not really fan of dubstep.Choir/violin parts are good, but the rest meh.

Was all slice-of-lifey with comedy until Kanade. Holy shit, did she just MELT? Pretty gruesome change in the episode there.

Kana is hilarious, haha. An almost complete cripple with a sailor's mouth. Priceless.

Ryouta is being a tad annoying every time he forces himself to Kuroha because he still thinks she is Kuroneko. It's been 10 years, get over it, now he's just being rude to her.

1. The computerized voice box that kana uses is quite good. Sounds like a real person

I was thinking the same thing. Was a bit ridic.

I'm guessing Kuroha is Kuroneko but that she lost her memories during the witch experiments. Guess we'll find out later on in the show though.

That cake scene was pretty ridiculous as well but very humorous. Ending was a bit lame but at least I'm interested in what's going to happen next week.

01:36 the OP clip made me think that the girls became witches after being revived from death =/

02:43 dat chibi

05:42 MOE

07:33 was she trying to say "I'm already dead" ???

7/10 for this ep.

Better than 1st episode. This season seems to be full of good shows, and this is one of the top animes.

Watching that cute girl getting ejected was disturbing

Right after I saw the "eject" scene (which made me want to storm their lab and go on a shooting spree), the following popped into my head.

This is pure speculation, but I'm spoiler tagging it just in case.

Now I find out that this series is by Okamoto Rin, the same dude who did Elfen Lied, and I'm off to read the manga!

Haha that kanji "reading" :D I've never even thought of 右 and 左 that way until now. :D

Other than that... I really want to like this anime, but everything feels so rushed and monotone. There is no impact to anything at all. Oh, she's been experimented on for 10 years? Yeah, that's inte-- oh no, a person is going to die! But don't worry she's saved right awa-- Yeah, we just killed this one character, and she like melted. Whatever, next scene! feels like that.

Well, the boy is quite baka in this episode - and is too attached to Kuroha. I know that Ryouta is missing his childhood friend and give himself the fault, but that was annoying for me in this episode.
