THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Oh yes, Elizabeth shows up this episode. Been waiting for her to show up for awhile now.



In the meantime, I liked the brief fight between Kyouma and Shidou. A thrilling episode with the mystery behind the scenes. But poor Mira, she got caught up in this mess as well.

This episode was really really creepy and a little confusing too O_O

The fact that all of this ghost stuff is actually happening in real time freaked me out but when Mira entered the world of those horror novels, I too was terrified by how much gore they detailed, like that was some fucked up shit

We got introduced to the blonde vampire girl whom seems like she's going to be an interesting character especially since she's also a collector but what I liked the most was finding out that Al is from the same group that Kyouma was in and is actually a badass just like him =o Their little fight was very cool

Mira in the bathroom showcasing that HAWT body but at the same time we got to learn more about her time with her dad and seeing her analyze things on her own in order to fully grasp the subject behind this mystery was pretty neat....Really liking how she's full of surprises

Overall the episode was great, the tone was fitting throughout it all and the mystery and thriller aspects were handled pretty great esspecially via the use of type of screenplay and direction that this episode had.....Seeing the numbers come into play even more like this has me very exicted too since there are so many parties that are after them in addition to the stuff with how much chaos they caused both with Kyouma and his past plus the tragedy at the lake

The thing that has me me little confused however is the ending in particular because I'm bad with names usually and I wasn't sure about the significance of the novelist that drowned saying that he is also this other guy that the kid scientist dude was talking about with Kyouma....I might have to rewatch this again

Pretty interesting ghost murder mystery here. Loved all the horror imagery and vibes. Interesting to see it ended on a cliffhanger.

That was crazy and interesting. I'm waiting for some explanations from people cause that was kind of fast for me and out of nowhere. It's definitely the best episode so far.

Interesting episode. Enjoyed all of the mysterious. Although at some points in the second half I felt a little lost. Might need to rewatch.

Wish this series had a little less fanservice. Now Mira is captured wearing only a towel. This is probably going to lead into an awkward situation next episode.

Little fight was intense. Blonde dude became more interesting after that.

Poor Mira, always get that "treatment" from Kyouma. I wonder how much more episodes long she can take it.

That was crazy. What a messy even kinda trippy ep. Loved it XD

Mira just keeps being <3 I just love her personality and that she's not useless at all. Her getting caught at the end is kinda inevitable. I mean holy shit she went through quite a lot of shit before getting caught. And that feature she has making her visualize all the stories she reads in such details is kinda insane.

Not to mention DAT SMOKIN HAWT BODY :L

Why does Kyouma keep calling her piece of junk :(

Other than that, loved Kyouma and Albert's part. Albert's way stronger than I thought
I really underestimated him. The way he was dodging and blocking Kyouma like that and how he nonchalantly landed from a 3 floor fall was awesome.

Already loving Elizabeth too. Her design is really cute and her personality is seeming to be lots of fun.

I guess it's more like Mira lack or have none of "Self Awareness". Maybe that's why Kyouma always referring her as "Robot" and "Rubbish" thingy.

Finally get to see the blondie in the OP in this episode. Oh and Mira gets called rubbish a lot this time xD her reactions are pretty cute. Oh and didn't think the guy from New Tesla was also a beast of Grendal, i thought he was just a weak pawn.

Nice mystery horror element this time, this anime has quite a variation I see.

Elizabeth is a nice addition, love her character design.

Finally the blonde girl shows up, who we keep seeing in the intro. So that's rich looking girl Elizabeth long names. Alright. XD

Anyways, so a lot of things were going on, I suppose. And Mira... it's like she got herself into a horror movie. lol She's in one hell of a mess. Same as that other girl who got kidnapped. Hope they'll be alright and not messed up badly or something.

I'm getting more interested in Albert, really. I didn't know that he's a beast of Grendal as well. I hope to see him be more involved in the later episodes.

Omg Mira-swaaaan is so kawaii and sexi at the same time :D! This episode was awesome, has to be the best one so far. It had lots of mystery and horror to it. It got kind of gory towards the end in that alternate world; I'm not gonna lie, that freaked me out when she was being chased by the one girl in the other world and went in the lobby and all those zombie looking people were there. I think its super cute when mira-swan gets scared lol. That bathroom scene though <3. I guess we are finding out a little more about numbers and the collectors past. Also cool to know that the guy from new tesla was a beast of grendel too. It seems kyouma survived some sort of numbers incident in his past, but guess he didn't know about numbers back then. Also the new character Elizabeth is pretty hot too ^_^.

Quite a bizarre episode. Looks like this series gravitates more towards supernatural than sci-fi. It feels a bit rushed, there wasn't enough time to digest what is actually going on. Cheesecake was nice though. Once again, real shame it's only 13 episodes.

That was kind of a mess. And while I usually appreciate fanservice, I felt that it weakened the impact of the drama in this episode. Overall, it wasn't bad though.

Great episode, really liked the tone of it and all the mystery going on, the world Mira found herself stuck in was creepy, seeing whats going on and all that gore.
We find out that Albert is also a beast of Grendel, liked his and Kyouma's little fight, and seeing Mira trying to act normal and figure out what to do was cute and funny.

This episode was great, but also disturbing at the same time.

I get the feeling that the numbered coils, which have a huge amount of power as explained back in episode 3, that was used back in the past could be the reason why the spirits are coming back to life and coinciding with the present, which makes certain scenes in the episode pretty disturbing and thrilling.

But one thing for certain is that the owner in the present and one of the 'victims' in the past are supposedly the same. That left me confused as to why, but considering that they've captured Mira and the fact that she didn't have the power to protect herself, it's up to Kyoma and the others to rescue her before it's too late.

On another front, we were lucky to see Mira's nude body while she was taking a shower....hot damn... ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

It was also interesting to see the amusing relationship between Kyoma and Shidou, who got kicked out the twindow during their short fight. However, he does know a lot about Kyoma's past. As we saw from more flashback shots, it showed Kyoma in a lot of pain. I wonder if we'll be able to see his past in full at some point?

For a standard 24 minute episode, there was a lot to take in, so I might need to rewatch certain parts so I can get a better understanding about our antagonists and their plans. Apart from that, this episode has left me wanting more and more! =D

It sounds pretty bad. This is the first time it actually feels rushed and I hope it won't be like that from now on.

Every time I hear the OP song, I fall in love with it even more.

Anyway, random point aside, this was a pretty freaky episode. All these horror and mystery elements are making this kind of interesting though, so I look forward to seeing more of this situation and how Kyoma handles it.

MAL has this listed for 12 episodes, not 13. Unless there's an additional episode that I don't know about lol.

9 chapters? Holy shit, no wonder it felt like all of these developments were happening super fast. I hope the remainder of the series isn't like this, I'm really enjoying this anime and I don't want it to end up being a train wreck.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Woah! 9 chapters in 1 episode?! No wonder it felt fast. Somehow, it didn't ruin the episode all that much although I did think that it would've been better if they didn't rush things. Well, I hope they don't continue with the rushing. I mean, this is my 2nd fav of this season after Erased and I don't want it this to be a disappointment. So far, it has been great.

I felt like this was the first episode were they didn't take their time developing the story and setting. I don't know the source material, but could it be a rush job? Me don't know.

anyone ever watched the film Event Horizon? There's a similar kind of narrative to this episode. Don't go opening new dimensions I guess is the lesson to be learned.

And inevitably one has to mention Mira's super fine Robo proportions. Fanservice galore.
