the rookie joined the club already causing confusion
Kazumi is kinda perverted
and poor Shino-chan, maybe she could have entered the harem too
Next episode will have a great battle

Why don't Murakami and Kuroha just run for it ?
I mean Shino looked pretty dead to me, so while that lazercanon firin' Kikako searches for Shino's Harnest, they could easily escape.
Also, Kotori's ability can be useful if you think about it. If she were to jump from somewhere high up then swap places with someone (unless it's a witch with a gravitational manipulation abilitiy) ,he/she would die easily.
Though Kotori's teleportation ability might not have a wide enough radius for that.
This is just overthinking it though, Murakami should just get a firearm and learn to use it.
I mean if he had a firearm and knew had to use it properly, he could have just headshotted/Harnestshotted Kikako and be done with it.
But maybe that could ruin the excitement of this anime.

1. Kotori doesn't seem like she can harm a fly.

2. Too bad they couldn't save shino

LOL and I here thought Kotori was the AA+ witch. She is so clumsy and useless (based on the other astronomy club members reaction), I find this cute though xD
Looking forward to Tachibana's forecast, still wondering how that event will turn out.

I'm very curious about Kana's vision and about what Kotori's role is in that vision, especially why she's smiling. Random, but I just noticed that all the main's names start with K (Kuroha, Kana, Kazumi, Kotori...), though I bet someone already mentioned this before.

Also, I kind of laughed when Kikako opened her mouth to shoot out that cannon. Somehow instead of scary, I found it funny. Maybe it's because of her shark teeth, or her ugly character design.

Unpopular opinion: This episode was the least interesting.

There are many reasons, let me enumerate them for you.

First thing: I really find it hard to believe that her hair didn't fall down while they were at the observatory

Second thing: He was shouting "ERMAHGURD, U HAZ A HARNEST?" and the girl just ignored him.

Third thing: THE MOST ANNOYING THING... "She mustn't be the killer, because she enrolled." In other words, Kuroha was stupid because she enrolled to save a few people?

I'm really sorry, just expressing what I think.

So they went to the lake to save the girl yet made no attempt to save her. Great. Now they are in danger for a seemingly stupid reason. I wish the author thought of better ways to get his characters where he wants them.

Can't wait for them to deal with this troublesome witch.

I still don't trust Kotori completely, even if its becoming apparent that she wasn't the killer that was assigned to go after them.

Kana's prophecies do come in handy! Also, am I the only one who thinks that Kazumi really wants to experience sex before she dies? She brings it up, or something similar to it, quite often.

Anyway, good episode, even with the fanservice-y bits which I wasn't huge on, but still lots of fun, and now I have to wait a week...

3/5

I enjoy this anime to a certain extent but I'm not a fan of the fanservice. But since that's a given in most anime these days so I don't mind so much. Also, I'm not disappointed that the gore is censored as I'm not a fan of it at all, I can't stomach it if it's really detailed at all.

The characters in this show are all tropes, but it's not bad. This show probably doesn't deserve the rating it gets, but I'm holding off giving it any score right now. I'm seeing if it'll get better, but even if it doesn't I won't drop it because this show is alright. Just average.

The only thing pissing me off is how they just kill off random characters...and we're supposed to care? It doesn't mean anything if they've got no back story or if they contribute nothing to the plot or story. I find it diverts away from the actual plot, in fact.

It's sad but I'm watching this because I only want to know how it will end, but I'm feeling nothing towards the characters nor the story so much.

This episode was a 3/5, futile fanservice that I didn't like and some superficial bits of dialogues and situations that were just bothersome.
If Kana has a paralysis and cannot show any facial expressions, how Konoha knew that there was something wrong with her in the cliffs? :D

The AA+ witch seems powerful, but not so impossible to beat, c'mon.
If one of them dies there's no more time repeat this time around.

Man, that Kotori just sneak out unnoticed?
She can't be bad cause she's in the ED. She'll probably teleport that silly cannon user into water or somewhere.
+ Kana's prophecy doesn't seem all that great if it can be easily changed.

This show fails so badly at basically everything, it is almost funny. And they're not the least bit self aware about it. They're trying to tell some kind of dark story and everything they do to achieve this is so utterly botched, that it makes the entire thing look ridiculous.


If I were you, I would drop it.

I mean, really: there is no use to keep watching a show you don't like.

But what's even more annoying is to see some people complain week after week how the show is worthless, yet feel compelled to continue complaining about it on this forum. It doesn't make sense. We're at episode 5 by now; more than enough to make up your opinion of it. And, as you say, it really is crap and the entire thing looks ridiculous, THEN STOP WATCHING it. I never understood people which are that inconsistent, unless their only goal is to troll. Mind you, this does not mean one can't say some constructive criticism about it, but that's not the same as just complaining about it, and saying everything is bad. If everything is bad, stop watching it.

If I don't like a show/series, I drop it, it's as simple as that. I think we all have better things to do than watch an anime you don't like, and keep telling us how you dislike everything. There are many series, films, etc. out there that I don't like too. Well, I'm not wasting my time with those that I don't like. I'll say it again: it makes no sense to keep watching something you don't like, and coming to a forum every week to tell us how much you dislike everything.

Kazumi is such a tease, she would be a nice pair with Ryouta if he didn't have a destined love with Kuro Neko

Kotori's air headness was really funny

IF u read the manga than u know that they really didint change much most of the material is the same with a few changes in dialect and putting bits of scense a bit out of order but not much.

I actually think the pacing and adaptation is going great so far


Yeah ARMS Studio was really doing a great gob because they actually arranging the scenes in order unlike in the manga. I just wish that this one would not be like Elfen Lied which the Anime had different Ending from the manga. And I also want to say this was really much better than Elfen Lied.

Probably she just lied again so Murakami will be convince that's she's sure about what she had seen in her vision.Just like how she was hiding that she can really move but she don't want to move.

I hope the MC kisses Kana in the future... I know it's highly improbable with Kuroneko being the main love interest, but still... he needs to kiss Kana at least once!

Still believe that Kotori is hiding something, whether it be a second personality unknown to her, or maybe she's being blackmailed into helping the other team, who knows... XD

I think Kana's prophecy isn't changed as much as it being misinterpreted by Kana herself. I get the feeling that Kotori is smiling in the prophecy because she saved the day or something. Maybe she jumped off some really high cliff and teleported the AA+ to that location, right before AA+ was about to mutilate Ryuota or something and then "SPLAT" AA+ dies a gib-alicious death ;)
Same vision, different interpretation, no?

Kana blushing on Ryuota's back and that 180 degree change from all the girls thinking star gazing was boring was awesome!

I want next weeks episode now!

This anime would have been better if it had a tad bit less fanservice..I don't really mind it, but those sound effects of Kotori's boob-bounce reminded me of HotD, which I for certainly didn't watch for story.

Doubt that was a lie, probably just an oversight by the author.

@Barion How are they gonna beat that monster?
I was thinking Murokami acts as bait, distracts Kikako by running in so and so direction, Kuroha while Kikako being distracted slowly walks up to her and just when Kikako is going to shoot that beam, Kotori uses her magic to teleport Murokami. Then Kuroha quickly pushes that harnest on Kikako's back for the win.

Seems risky since they only get one try based on Kotori's magic hanging up after one use.
I think Kotori's power only works by switching with people. Why else would she switch with Murakami if she could do it on her own? I may be over thinking this though. Otherwise, that seems like a good plan. No matter what, I'm sure Kotori doesn't kill them. She probably switches with someone too late in the premonitions which makes her look she's the killer, maybe smiling thinking she saved them. Good episode, this show has so many cliffhangers already.


Well maybe she could get in front of Kikako and the moment she shoots her beam Kotori would teleport effectively making Kikako kill herself.

Holy crap... I absolutely love when predictions are FORCED to come true due to special circumstances. Man... Kuroha's efforts were in vain though; she still got obliterated by Ms. AA+ :/

I wonder how they will get out of THIS one. Can't wait.

Lol, so Kotori is probably also a B class witch. And teleportation magic with a limit of one teleport in between harnest hang ups? Wow, she's kind of useless.

I'm guessing Ryouta tied Kuroha to the pole and then used himself to switch with Kotori, where she then pulls out the harnest from Kikako?

Sucks that Shino died like that. Kuroha was gathering her resolve to save her and then yeah...you two talked a little too much there...

DEM CENSORS. Geez, this show is pretty gory. And Kazumi is hilarious; why is she trying so hard?

Looks like Ryouta scored love points with all the girls this episode. And Kuroha has a yandere streak somewhere inside her.

I know Kazumi is a horny bitch and I know why she is a horny bitch, which will be elaborated later, but was she this horny a bitch?

Kuroha's "yandere-ism" seems to be beyond her control. Its not like she gets jealous and then destroy stuff in a fit of jealousy, its more like it's happening subconsciously. It probably has something to do with her losing her memories.

Thread Cleaned of spam and off topic discussion

The ability to teleport once before getting hung up... seems pretty useless. Either she gets stronger and is able to teleport more before getting hung up or she is a hybrid with another power.

Surprised there hasn't been a joke about the rank AA/AA+ and bra sizes.

Poor Shino D: I honestly may have puked a bit if it wasn't censored >.>

So...anyone who knows about witches is going to get killed...but then we have this lady who throws laZers left and right without giving a damn...

I guess we'll be seeing what Kotori has in the bag next episode. From this one it seems to me that she has no ideea of what is going on...that isn't the reaction of a runaway witch when someone finds out about her...or that's what I think.
