Holy shit, that was brutal but not just the episode itself. The grim reality is out there. The MC finds out the hard way. A lot of

Still, I'm not surprised given the nature of this show. Saori is one tough witch not to mess with.

I think personally OP is the best in this season. The OP song has completely fitted the animation of OP and the atmosphere of this work.

By the way, the heroine and her friends seem to be never able to survive until the final episode. I really want a beach episode before their death.

The reunion was rejected... The 35 hours to live without medicine... Kuroneko really wants to see the ocean, at least her heart remembers. Her memories at the cost of magic? How about the side effects of other girls, I wonder how she got into the lab.
I kinda liked Kazumi when she knew she was dying too,
I wonder how Murakami would survive this. I want to doubt that Kuroneko didn't die... but that scene, Saori was blocking the full view so there might be some hope?
>.< Can't wait till they change the future, I wouldn't want to end up seeing everyone dying except for the protagonist.

Good episode. I finally got my answers from last ep and anime just started its engine and everything is looking great. I hope they can keep this up.

I also really love the OP. It sets the atmosphere very, very well.

This series manages to keep things interesting without looking like it's just throwing some random drama. Neko seemed kind of dead but then Murakami was like 'No we're still ok' and I was like huh!? I suppose it wasn't Neko who exploded into a sea of blood? Well, can't wait to see what happens.

Too much censorship.

Manga is way more violent and bloody

Shit! That was quite dark there.

Having to take pills everyday or else they'd die. And all that blood O:

I can't help but think Kana is cute <3 Her eye movements even subtle just give her quite lots of character hehe ^^; With the tsuntsun voice ofc :P

Murakami actually has photographic memory. But seems like he's just like ur usual shounen MC XD

At least he found out she's Kuroneko, well not for very long as she got spurted into pieces O_O...or not? I wonder what he still thinks he can do with Kuroha like that. He seemed to have hope O_o?

Loving Kazumi quite a lot. She's not what I expected when I saw her character design. Seems she's also on the verge of death.

Interesting to find out about the hahnest. I wonder what the 3rd switch is?

Loving the OP as usual ^^

At least Ryouta isn't stupid and useless like elfen lied's MC. And I see they're censoring some of the scenes.

Dont read the spoiler if you haven't read the manga@@

Even in spoiler case I don't think you should do this kind of spoiler on the page where we only talk about the current episode^^

1. Kuroha's so dumb burning the house down. Murakami having good memory is pretty lucky to have

2. Kuroha actually died? Was expecting plot armor or something. Curious to see where this goes.

Great episode filled with a lot of important info. & Kazumi <3 i like her voice suits her :p
the censorship didn't bother me at all.. in the Bluray releases it will be uncen.
i have only one small gripe.. it was very fast paced.. faithful but fast!
4.5/5 -> round up to 5

Best girl Kazumi is here. The gore is pretty toned down but oh well. They're taking the right amount of time with the important stuff so the quick pace isn't a bad thing yet. Time for Murakami to be a badass so people will stop calling him a whiny baby.

Come on HS, "hahnest"? That sounds so stupid, just translate it harnest like any normal person would.

I liked the episode and the new character, Kazumi. The witches were already saying they didn't have much time. Now, it's clarified why.

Not a reader of the manga here, so, I wouldn't know, but episodes do feel quite packed and full. Not much time lost with unrelated scenes. I don't really complain, as there isn't anything to get bored about.

This is one of my favourite series of the season. Hoping there is more exciting stuff to come.

This felt so much different than most anime I've seen. Usually the heroine doesn't get brutally slaughtered and have her blood strewn about after death. At least not by episode 3. I like it! I don't imagine that she'll stay dead, because anime logic, but it's still interesting. Wonder how the dude's gonna get out of this one.

I just wish they didn't censor it. I haven't read the manga or anything, but it feels like there could be so much more gore and other shit that is being blocked out. That much, I don't like

Well that was something. Is she really died.? Will the kid push the button on the bottom right on the back of the cutter girl's neck?

Great episode!!!

Wow... Kuroha sure had a lot of blood on her when Ryouta came to visit her and Kana.
If witches don't take those pills within after a certain amount of time has passed they start bleeding, their organs melt and die... with Ryouta blaming himself for inviting her.
It seems Kuroha really was Kuroneko but she lost her memories because she her power too much.
Damn, Kuroha got sliced up in half by that crazy Saori, and it seems like Ryouta is losing it.

As a manga reader I have to say that so far they're doing a pretty good job adapting this. Of course they toned down the gore a bit, but it was to be expected.

So Kuroha really was Kuroneko. Too bad she appears(is?) dead. The OP was played at the perfect time. It works so well

This anime removed everything I hated about Elfen Lied so far which was the annoying MC, the stupid and totally out of place nudity and every other little thing that made me hate that anime. Pretty good so far. Curious to see what will happen. I doubt the MC is dead so I am going to think she wasn't the one cut into pieces somehow. Or maybe a new power/witch will manifest that resurrects people. The least likely is this will go for a repeated time loop series like Higurashi

It literally took me 30 seconds to register exactly what happened in this episode!

That's quite cruel.
The fact that a 'witch's' life hangs by a thread(pill).
So, essentially, they only have a little more than a full day to consume one, huh.
Looks like the bad guys make another brief appearance.

So, Kazumi is gonna die soon too.
Better if they get those pills quickly, then.

That second half of the episode, though.
Saori is one beast witch with her special ability.
Wonder what happened at the last few minutes there.
So, what...Kuroha can reverse time or something? xD

Definitely hyped for the next episode.
Let's see what happens next!

That was one good episode. Such a good ending, never expect the main characters to die. But I'm sure there will be some way to revive her

This episode was pretty good and dark.

Too bad, Kazumi, Kuroha and Kana have to take the pills everyday or they will die.

Murakami finally find out that Kuroha is Kuroneko.

Pretty good episode, things are definitely getting more intense at a rapid pace.

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

last episode showed that the buttons can turn them into toothpaste and now they have to take the pills or else they'll literally break apart..

..well, this shows darkness escalated quickly.

man, I really wish I didnt start reading this manga 2 years ago since I pretty much spoiled myself from all future cliff hangers.

btw take a drink every times someone ominously starts bleeding
