THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well that was a change of mood. Went from all serious to lighthearted in the second half. I'm not a fan of Kotori but her abilities can come quite handy when the time asks for it.

RIP cake.
Well the girls are having their fun. Oh shit, that ending.

I'm not enjoying that much this adaptation.
The manga has a better control of it's pacing and foreshadowings (every chapter has a "wow, i need to see the next one" moment. In the anime, they even destroyed the tension behind the scenes (like at the end of episode 3), privatizing the climax of every chapter into something with no rhythm whatsoever.

Anyway, I'm gonna stick around, because I love Kazumi.
Still, I recommend reading the manga rather than watch the anime.

PS: Knowing the situation in chapter 100, this can even have an official ending (manga ending), for those who were scared about the possibility of this show having an original ending.

Trying to do this in only 13 episodes really hurts the mood and pacing. Having an occaisional light-hearted chapter in the manga is OK, but jamming it together with other dark scenes in the same episode is jarring.

Also - where have you seen chapter 100? Senmanga has been stuck on 99 for a few weeks now.

They found a source of supply for the medicine? Kogoro is willing to listen since he doesn't believe in magic, like how Neko just exploded his stuff to prove it to him xD
So Kotori smiles when she is sad... Chie's death, it was pretty touching to see how Chie wouldn't eat her medicine so that Kotori could live to her 16th birthday T.T
Glad Kotori officially joined the group, glad they found her as she wanting to die.
More fan-service as they play with the water hose!
When ever Neko blends Kana's food T.T I wonder how it would taste >.>
Still interesting, teleportation is really good for hanging up people!

Kotori's magic proved to be really helpful, especially if she can trade places with witches like she just did without any drawbacks, and I really liked Kogoro's personality.
And by the way that dubstep-ish ost while they were setting up the trap for Kikako was amazing.

Seems I was right with Kikako's magic. The lag of her attack was the weakness and the stronger the attack is the more lag there is for her attack to be released. Not only that but it seemed like Kikako's beam only went in a straight line.

Also I was right about Kotori's magic also affecting non-humans.She used her teleport magic to switch place with Kikako. So Kikako ends up being tied in place of Kotori, and Kotori is on top of Kuroha instead of Kikako.


Sad to see Kotori'd wanting to die because Chie didn't make it because they would run out of pills.

Murakami went to talk with a researcher and once Murokami showed him magic he was willing to help Murokami out. I guess the researcher was curious about the magic. Main objective for his visit there was pills for the girls.

Correct me if I'm wrong but if things go according to plan the researcher will establish a facility where he'll make pills for the girls or something around those lines?

Loved the ending of this ep so much :D

How Murakami broke that Kogoro's obsession with scientific explanations XDXD And got him hyped lol. Poor PC-kun T_T Why Kuroha XD Lol'd at how he even sacrificed his father's keepsake XD His eyes at the end when he got interested were awesome. I think I might like this guy ^^

The part with Kikako wasn't bad. Really liking how calm Murakami is during this stuff. Great protagonist. He also keeps calm seeing boobs :3 XD

I was wondering why they didn't think of using Kotori's ability on Kikako but then they did...good.

Her story was quite sad, I think that was the first some time I see a girl blushing and smiling while being covered in blood O_O Quite the unique thing to see XD

I wonder what Murakami has planned for Kogoro and how he's planning to solve the pills problem?

Great episode. I enjoy how they stop the AA+ but the mainhighlight for me was the end of the episode. Showing that guy who is a nonbeliever and his very interesting face he made right when the ep ended got me really hype. xD It can go anywhere now and I'm excited for the next episode already!

This teleport ability is strange, it teleports clothes too, but not wire, it would be more fun to switch clothes too :D
I guess the addiion of mad scientist is nice, he is not even a girl, but seems like a gay, so he can be added to harem, too bad;/

Ryouta is quite the strategist and fast thinker isn't he :D

Kotori's life is coming to an end it seems...

It's really nice that they managed to convince Kotori to keep on living.

Ryouta is bringing a new ally to their family, that'll help them get more pills and whatnot.

That was a really clever way to beat the opponent, I did not think of that at all. So we have this creeper I guess gay guy (or is he just a joker?) that will now make them pills as he will synthesize them. So the little rag tag team of witches can be a super hacker, crush things, switch places, and tell forecast. Only two of them can actually do direct battle while the other two provide information and one can only use her ability once. However our MC is actually really useful and intelligent so they have a fifth person. I wonder if they will ever developer new powers.
And the scientist not being a big boobed woman is shocking.

What they skipped some scenes from chapter 20?! I thought they will introduce Marakami's mom,Kitsuka Hatta and her mom on this episode. But they go straight to the fanservice scene.

ARMS Studio was messing up again like they did to Elfen Lied.I just hope they would not skip some scenes again for the next episode.

Anyway about the scenes. That's explains why Kuroha Neko was tied up on a pole on Kana's vission because Kotori wants to switch place with Neko and so that she can save her and sacrifice her life for her. But Murakami actually had a plan on how to defeat that not so scary useless AA+ witch by using Kotori's teleportation magic.

Kotori tries to hide so that she can die alone because she doesn't to be a burden to Murakami and the other witches. But she's really dumb because she used her real address when she applies on Astronomy Club that's why she was found by them. Kotori explains why she was always smiling because she made a promise to her friend Chie that she should always smile even if she's sad.

And as usual when there's a fanservice scene, Kotori always do something weird making her like a lesbian that doesn't care if Murakami sees every of her. But Kotori and Kuroha's was been embarrassed which is the right reaction like on that case. Murami sees them when they are stripping but he has no reaction on that scene which is really rare on anime.Kotori really loves to cook that's why the food she serve was delicious. And as usual Kuroha use a blender again to crush the food for Kana, Poor Kana.

Ryouta Murakami ask his uncle who was a crazy mad scientist for help on making their own death suppressant pills/medicines. But to convince him they need to prove that magic users/witches really exist on their town by the use of Kuroha's magic which is to destroy/decompose anything from the lab. He was really scary though.

cant really say im enjoying this show much. trying to figure out what all the hype is all about but no luck sofar.

there is just absolutely nothing for me in there that sets it apart from shows with similar setting and story + plot. too much fanservice..there should be none at all.

this show doesnt even make it in my top 10 this season. there are soooo much better shows aring currently.

Feel free to drop it. ;-)

It's not as good as Elfenlied so far, I'll grant you that. But 'so many better ones', this season? I only know of 2, maybe 3. It's still way above most anime this season, to be frank.

Depends what you're into, of course.

Yeah don't worry about it, the anime seems to be eager in rushing things right now but as far as I've seen, they've been following the manga faithfully except for the first page of chapter 1 and a few re-arrangements as well as some dialogue being cut out. I hope they introduce his "crazy" mother, which they should have but I reckon they're rearranging it so that the 2 scenes she is in the manga become 1.

I've read 41 chapters in RAW (the first 58 being scanlated), so I have somewhat of a grasp of the story but not an accurate one though, which is annoying because I've been hearing the chapter 100 is almost like an ending, which I hope is it not true because it doesn't even close to finishing. ;)

The mad scientist is
.

EDIT #1:
I just read chapter 100 and it's definitely not the ending, more like there will be a new arc hopefully.

That censoring is so bad it is actually making me laugh, their oppais are brighter than the morning sun and my eyes hurt just trying to look at them xD , but I keep enduring the pain and keep looking while hoping they messed up the censoring at some point ... they didn't -.-

interesting episode, cool way to defeat the AA+ , I liked how Murakami looks like some cool FBI agent with that earpiece lol (I noticed it more when he was talking to Kotori when she was refusing to take the pill).
The ending was really interesting, we have a MAD SCIENTIST Hououin Kyo-- no wait, that's a different show :P .. our mad scientist for this anime is "Kogoro something" and he looks really cool and interesting especially at that final moment.

I am still enjoying this anime overall and I am looking forward to the next episode.

btw, How can we watch the uncensored version?? this is getting annoying. is there a way??

Seems that doctor has little interest in things outside of his personal environment which does suggest he can be trusted.
Thing is will he be able to make the medication the girls need.
A good doctor in medication will be able to figure out the materials that go into the pill but will the be able to get all the resources needed to make one.
That's the question.

As always, fanservice was unnecessary...But oh well, I am not nitpicking, I am relatively fine with it.
What I didn't understand this episode is why did it take them so long to figure out how to use Kotori's power. Her power has a lot of application possibilities, yet it took them like 5 episode minutes to come up with idea of using it on Kikako instead on Kuroha. I find that stupid, especially because Murakami is supposed to have photographic memory and to be brain of this team.

Still, I enjoyed this episode as always. I wanted to see Kogorou for quite a bit of time now... and it finally happened.

"Keepsake from my fathe-*BOOM"

That was hilarious. What if he just wanted to show the MC his father's pen?

First half of the episode was dumb. Kotori's plan was idiotic, and a forced setup for the obvious revelation. The scientist seems like a promising new character.

Quick thinking on Ryouta's part helped them out of the mess. And Kuroha's courage to stand against Kikako.
Oh, finally the introduction of that guy.
Lol at when he pointed at the ground and it exploded and when the pen just broke.

So far no major changes compared to the manga. :)

LOL that mad scientist was pretty funny at the end. Scary, but he looks like a promising character in later episodes.

The MC was pretty impressive when versing an AA+ user, having intelligence and knows how to handle the situation.

I felt bad for Kotori's back story when she lost her friend, and decided to end her life. At least Ryouta is there to support her and convinced her to enjoy life.

Everyone is safe and they lived happily in a research observatory lab :D.

Ryouta has something in mind when threatening the scientist...

Even if the scientist can be trusted: He will need various materials to make the pills. Unless they are quite common and it's just the witches are manipulated into needing it (gen manipulation, magic, or it's the aliens), it will not take long for an organization like the one behind all of this to figure out someone is making pills. Just like the police etc. tracks shipments of chemicals that can be used to make bombs etc.

It's a wonder they haven't found them yet. Ryouta and girls have a rather limited operational range, some witches like the AA+ they let go knows about them, they do not exactly try to hide (making fire in an abandoned village, living in the observatory, which therefore is always in use (way more than pure club acitivities), having fun in the garden (loud, using lots of water etc.). And Ryota is buying more and more food. Nobody suspects him or anything, and he has no harness or anything that blow their cover right away if the police stops him for whatever, but still, there's quite a lot of leads to follow.
