I still find it odd that Kana's voice device also expresses her current emotional states. How would it know?


I really think we shouldn't give it much thought...it probably wouldn't make sense anyway,lol.

speaking of Kana's voice device thingy, I love how when she sees a forecast and is in pain all she can think of is "oh I am in great pain, I have to type aaaahhhh so everyone knows I am in pain" , seriously this is ridiculous.
not to mention how the device can express emotions .. yup that makes sense.
how the hell did they get their hands on this device anyway if they ran away from being disposed of?

I am starting to think it is one of these shows that I have to turn off my brain to watch, but I am still enjoying it anyways and I love it so far.

I know right, because the fact that she can express her emotions thru a device even though she shouldn't be able to completely ruins the flow of the story since it is such a relevant piece of plot

The way I see it is that the author wants to conveniently use Kana's handicap (especially not being able to talk) in the plot whenever he likes while not having to alwaaays deal with it as a hindrance in other parts of the story. and this created a big inconsistency and some ridiculous moments where I can only facepalm to the stupidity.

Seems like it,at least partially. I wouldn't be surprised to see one or two more such conveniences tbh but I'll let them slide if they won't affect my enjoyment of the show(I know this one didn't). I'm liking this a lot too for now. I'd still rather not have anymore though,so we don't have to turn off our brains entirely to enjoy this.

I don't find any attachments with the characters in this anime, so I didn't feel anything when blood splattered all over the place. Compare this anime with Black Bullet or Captain Earth (picking these two shows for obvious reason) and you can see the difference in quality: character-wise and execution-wise.

Coming back to the anime, if I were in the place of the dumb organization or whatever, I wouldn't spend resources to capture just to kill them anyways. Would have just fortified the security around the medicine facilities. They would simply die out without the medicine anyways. Pretty detailed when it comes to mentioning proxies being used to look up the facility but wouldn't care to explain stuff that matters (I know someone will probably say wait and see, but I know the explanations would be rather dumb).

Also, I bet the third switch that is never been used probably makes them immortal. In anime logic, being immortal is worse than death after all. C.C might agree but Araragi-kun would probably not.

In the end it is one of those shows that will be enjoyable as long as you start thinking along these lines:

Either that or it actually frees them by removing their powers without killing them, but the organization is lying to them by saying it is something worse than death.

Nice joke btw hehe, C.C would be alone and bored so ofcourse she will agree, while Araragi-kun will have the awesome badass 'Iron-blooded Cold-blooded Hot-blooded Kiss-Shot-Arceola Heart-Under-Blade' AKA 'Shinobu' with him, who wouldn't want to be immortal with her? xD

HOLY SHIT THIS SHOW IS INTENSE. Best episode of the entire show by far. Brynhildr in the Darkness was already on my top tier list but now it is definitely the GREATEST SHOW OF THE SEASON. If you aren't already watching this I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU PICK IT UP

All the witches in the OP, covered in blood - that was all explained. It looks like the stakes just got a lot higher now that we got a race against time.

Of course the episode has to end on a cliffhanger. Damn that ending was a shocker but there's no way the main character of the show is gonna die just 3 episodes in...

Eh... I really wanted to like this show but I'm not sure I'm a fan of how it's been proceeding so far. Hopefully my opinion will change because there's a lot of interesting material to work with, just needs to be executed properly.

Damnnnnn that cliffhanger. I hope they're not gonna be like Strike the Blood and say she's an immortal vampire.

Anyway I'm actually really enjoying this show despite the blatant fanservice thrown in, predictability and somewhat mediocre execution. It's just so damn interesting and I'm really sad this isn't a two four cuz I see so much potential in the plot to go farther.

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.

My guess about what's going to happen will be that Neko will be fine, something will save her, likely something already foreshadowed, like the third switch. Adding the fact that Murakami stopped freaking out only strengthens this theory. Perhaps he's figured out that the third switch might do something!

Maybe Saori's second power is healing so that will explain a lot.

I don't think they will show what the third button can do so soon.
I love her.

Wow, this episode was borderline creepy. Really getting good though. So Kuroha is Kuroneko? But then there's still the mystery of how she even survived.

Oh goddddd the suspense, why can't episode 4-12 be out already ;--;

Mmh this anime didn't keep up my expectations, I thought it was something different.
But i don't know how to explain how it is.

But I have to say that that was quite a cliffhanger.

And there was blood! Seriously though, this episode was pretty unforgiving... The need to eat pills every day else you'll die slowly and painfully, also what are the odds that the boiled water turnes into fire the few minutes they were gone :S

I still have hope... As someone else mentioned saori blocked most of the view so i expect Neko to have done something that might have made her survive, maybe turned the capsule to the right on her neck :O

The setting of this anime is so depressing. Even if they manage to obtain the pills, they are still being chased after the organization.

Sigh MC gets chopped up and killed on the third episode. Let's see what else Saori can do.

Looking at what the author did with his previous work, I really do hope that this does not end on such a sour note.


I actually thought MC would gain some crazy superpower after seeing his girlfriend die, but I guess that didn't happen.

As stated in the very first episode. This anime is easily THE best title of this season, no contest at all.
You want despair? You've got 30 hours left.
You want drama? Memory loss, childhood revelation right before the slaughter and magic hangups right when you need them the most.
You want gore? If you discount the splattering blood, the thought of skin breaking apart, bleeding rivers, and melting internal organs should be enough to make anyone gag.
You want violence? We'll introduce you to crazy little miss Saori and leave you to it.

And thats just episode 3! XD

I seriously can't wait for next week!

The house burning down seemed very fast, unexpected and i guess /stupid/. Also Ryouta memorizing the drug labels, and the mole thing?? this series is kinda meh for me right now, there are much better series this season. Hopefully it gets better, i really like all the characters.

Wow, that was unexpected.

But Kuroneko has plot armor so we all know that she'll come back. If she won't I'll be really surprised.

I hope it will get darker.

Everything is explained way too much, like they assume their audience are all children who can't understand anything without being spoonfed (and maybe they are right, sadly). Like, nothing is left to the imagination, we are babied through everything. And after they explicitly explain every detail, it goes into flashback mode to explain it all AGAIN! As if we didn't understand the first time.

We could have done without being told THREE TIMES they she can't use magic when she does it too much.

We could have done without the flashbacks explaining how she loses memories. Her explanation in the woods was far more than enough. Then the little loli chick explains it again. THEN the MC explains it AGAIN. THEN THE FLASHBACKS EXPLAIN IT AGAIN. Holy. Fucking. Shit.

Also the moles on boobs. They have to explain why the moles moved in position as she got older. LMFAO.

Also it wasn't enough for them to explain multiple times in previous episodes about how the forecasts can change if something unforeseen happens? They had to go over that AGAIN this episode?

Also we had to be explained for the 3rd time (or 4th time maybe?) that the MC will be killed if he hangs out with the witches? We got it, alright? We got it before. And the time before that. And the time before that.

It goes on and on with this explaining every detail, and this whole time I'm just wishing I could be figuring things out for myself. But nope, won't happen. They won't let it happen.

The entire plot is spoon-fed, from start to finish, including all the details. It ruins this show. Oh well. 5/10 so far.

A little late to mention but omg I hate the opening to this show!So much! I like the music, but the animation is just... ugh! Slow and off and doesn't go with the music. It drives me nuts.

Episode 3, decision time. The show is a meh for me ^^" Lovely art, but the maker seems to have a fetish of girls covered in blood. I'll still watch for now. I wonder if the main girl is dead? I wouldn't think so =/

If that house fire wasn't a lame desperate attempt to spark plot, I don't know what is. Pft.

The show has mad potential, the characters are all pretty likeable so far, but that's subject to change.

The OP is definitely one of the better I've heard and sets up the anime quite nicely. The blood/gore seems a bit toned down from what I've heard compared to the manga.

We'll see how this progresses throughout each episode.
