THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Wow. These last two episodes have been intense. Can't wait to see the next one. Seeing as there are still quite a few episodes left, Yako has to be fine.

These last 2 eps were good, probably the best thus far in the series I'd say.

Lol you gotta be kidding me. -_-

I know it sounds lame but I felt like Yuuya would become a beast like we've seen before, he already had tha attitude but he only transformed into a slave. Human rockets? A Bridge for a 10ton truck made of humans? A wannabe cliffhanger? Plotholes? Man it's so going downhill for this show.

I admit the human bridge scene threw me off completely... The truck should be too heavy for that to work. But once again, we are not in a world with demons and online artificial lifeforms running loose... Let's just say the planners of the last two episodes were a bit high....But I loved it simply BECAUSE of this weirdness and randomness, so I wouldn't complain about that. It is certainly a nice change from the usual plotline. It's like reading New Age literature....

I am well aware of the fact that there are demons and tools from hell but then they shouldn't use things like shooting with guns at Neuro or other things you're supposed to find interesting because it creates a Normal VS Freaky kinda atmosphere. Also, I laughed at the reflector thing, even if that worked, handguns have a thing called recoil. After firing, the gun cannot still be in the same position as before you fired a bullet, but they still focused on this 'real' thing. I know I'm not fully making sense but still, I hope the episodes will somewhat return to normal soon.

I have to agree in that, from a physics perspective, this episode was beyond pathetic. Not just the human bridge and reflector (glad someone else noticed), but the whole bike chase (including both the jumping onto them, and keeping up with speeding vehicles), and the shooting of the "soldiers" defending the first Sphynx.

But, we haven't been without such technicalities before - they've just been generally minor and easy to look past. Plus, as frequently toted, this isn't exactly the most realistic of series. Accept it or reject it. That all depends on you, and will influence your perception of the series, which we must all admit isn't for everyone.

Ha!

This is beyond wacky, personally I can suspend my disbelief.

And as such I am loving it :D

It's great to see Neuro actually fighting, and looking pissed etc.

Despite the absurdity of the physics, this was a great episode. The pacing was better, the chase scene was entertaining and seeing Higuuchi turn evil instead of just being evil from the start is a small relief. If that would have been the case, it would have been more predictable than Eps 4-6 of Zombie Loan, with Chika's friend who was blatantly shown as evil, despite his "assistance".

Yeah.. I was laughing my ass off with this episode, it went from mystery to comedy really. No that I really mind, I like to laugh. Oh and as a sidepoint, don't overestimate recoil, the gun can be kept quite steady, given though that I have not used too many handguns but I'm sure that there are handguns with less recoil than an assault rifle and I've seen someone shoot one of those on auto while keeping it quite steady, with a single hand.

I don't see how anyone can watch this anime and complain about realism. If realism is that important to you, you're watching the wrong show.

IMO the series has been getting better and better and these past 2 episodes have been the best by far, closely followed by the Sai episodes (which like someone else mentioned, I want to see get tied in)

We don't need any realism. Human bridge, electrodrugs end other crazy things. That's all we need.

I didn't care about the wrong physics stuff etc. Actually although it was a "wtf" at first, I quite enjoyed them since I'm a big fan of random stuff that are also entertaining. I'm loving this series tons until now and these last episodes have made me even more hooked.
The thing is that I understand the people that might complain about the physics etc. And I don't think the argument that this is a fantasy show is completely stable and I'll explain why. The protagonist of a show is indeed a demon. But the setting isn't a fantastic one, it's a quite realistic one. So that means that although we can expect any kind of freakish weird thing from the demon, we don't expect the same from the rest of the normal environment. In this sense the weirdness some of us might have felt makes sense.
Although I'll say again that personally I don't care much about this weird blending of reality and fantasy, as long as this randomness offers something unique and fun to watch! :)

Um so it's not only Sai who can see through Neuro, there's this super program HAL!
Gotta love more of Neuro fighting scenes plus Neuro innocent faces like this one:


I wanna cuddle, seriously ♥

Goudai predicted the demise of the car.

I laughed a bit too when I saw the human made bridge..


Higuchi has some potential in becoming a villain.
