Robert is such a mysterious dude in this show..

Idk how to feel about this episode tbh. The cases feels pretty repetitive with corrupt corpses and hoping for miracles to happen. That Julia guy has a divine-like aura with his presence.

Another case to solve. Robert has been acting weird in this episode. It seems John's prophecy is coming true. His previous prophecies have always been fulfilled. Julia's aura is quite divine. He's committing self-flagellation for being careless. This is looking to be an interesting case.

Will Robert die? Not likely but if he does, it would make for an interesting plot.

Like, is every priest bat shit crazy? Here we get a dude who whips himself and then there is Robert who's father was an alcoholic and he is going crazy for some reason and Hiiraga has a gay-vibe all around him and he is completely enamored with that self-whipping white haired priest.

Roberto seems to have some past-induced trauma after seeing the stigma on the dead father's hand, and everything after that was pretty much a blur for him.
Loved how Hiraga's motivation always starts with helping others as he would help his little brother.

And just how did the dead US girl get pregnant after staying a year out in these parts anyway? I have a feeling that the father of that kid may yet be involved, and perhaps it was a priest too :P

Man, that was shocking......

OK, what's wrong here?????

The setting is in Africa, so therefore there were no big cathedrals nor any Brogue Churches in there. In face the only place were such churches would exist would be in Ethiopia.

If there were Catholic priest there , they would be missionaries like the Comboni's Marians and OP's.

The snake statue that we saw is Indian and so as the ritual of feeding the corps to the birds like vultures.

They better not kill of Robert!!!!!!!!
That is all. I'm always suspicious of the saintly type, so that brightly glowing guy is my prime suspect. The FBI is definitely a major hint.
Dat screaming women scared the crap out of me.

Oh shit, Roberto isn't looking too good right now. I don't think he'll die but that possibility is making the show more interesting at the moment.

Honestly, the real mystery now is if they can top the "Hitler's sperm" line.

I feel like Roberto might have been drugged with something, hence his general feeling of unease.

Very strange episode this week and the duo sets off to discover the truth of a new case...but it just felt like a jumbled mess of an episode...so incoherent and idk what's going on with Roberto but it's like he's tripping on some sort of hallucinogenic or something at the end...the whole episode just left me feeling confused.
I shall rule over the realms of anime and manga! Mwahhahahahaha!!!

A lot of half faces in this episode.

I think they slipped something into Roberto's food to give him some hallucinogenic trip.

It seems like this mystery involves people forcing prophecies to come into fruition, instead of them happening naturally.

I feel bad for Roberto. It looks like there was abuse in his past and he saw his mother die or something. That's going to give some level of trauma to any person, so I get why he's freaking out a bit.

An interesting episode that introduces a intriguing new case

A painter that has the ability of foretelling and able to express what he see's as a painting eh. An interesting ability. Having too much faith in something can also be considered a bad thing which is very true. Wow so the case this time is a corpse that won't decay eh. So this case also has the pressure of pressure from the media too eh. Hmm to run into the FBI in a rain forest of all places lol. Hmm a american that came to film a documentary somehow ended up as a skeleton eh. Hmm a dead woman that was turned into a skeleton and now a missing baby as well. Hmm so the setting this time is a church thats located deep in the rain forest eh. I guess Julia is a gender neutral name in the anime. Indeed Jordan's corpse really hasn't decayed at all. So a dream of angels heralded this alleged miracle eh. And the enigmatic author of the famous book also makes an appearance eh. Hmm a man with amnesia that stumbled into a church eh. So John foretold Amy's fate eh. His newest prophesy about Roberto though sure was a surprise. This church seems to be having an impact on both of them actually. The combination of the prophesy plus the tribal nature of the country sure is making this threat much more real and mysterious.

Quite possible, that soup looked suspicious. But Roberto had that eye of unease since visiting John's corpse right after settling in their room. Might also be the air inside that morgue.

The paintings are great. So much priest stuff & dead people to investigate again.
Interesting mix of a local snake demon with that snake giving Adam & Eve painting during the meal.

The sounds during Roberto's visions & later ritual quite an intense atmosphere. Gives impression a drunk artist with stigma hands strangled a woman, John & Naomi?

Killing off Roberto would be a nice twist.

Enters the androgynous looking priest presented before the airing!

So, who's the one dedicating his free time to make sure more prophecies become true? The writer?

3/5

It's like Duma Key, but with more Nostradamus, Voodoo and homoerotic priests.
I wonder if the stolen baby is also Hitler's clone.

Poor Roberto on the verge of being killed off. AGAIN.

In other news I really hope Julia isn't the bad guy (he's too pretty to be evil! lol) but I've got a bad feeling about it...

Interested to see what happens next episode!

This episode was quite confusing for me. The first thought that came to me was the corpse wasn't actually dead and the head priest is actually a doctor too.

Then the thing with Roberto was just too off or rather random. Anyway, my personal guess seems to be leaning that the corpse or the stigma on his hand is somewhat related to his dad ..

Is it only me or this episode is creepy as fuck ????
Man I was scared all the time and especially when the sound of the woman came out that was when I lost all my shit
But beside that, it was an interesting first episode to the second arc I like the story of the prophecies and the corpse
I found Julia to be a little crazy with the way he punished himself WTF and I'm always suspicious of those guys who seems so nice so I don't trust him
Also I am the only one who thought this I found some yaoi vibes around Hiraga when he first entered the church I know that he's being reminded of his brother and he's doing that for him but this was too much for me
The author of the book is creepy af
And finally Roberto poor him I think he's reminded of his trauma with his mother and father judging by the flashback he had at the last scene If this was the case, he had such a painful past He won't die because he's one of the main characters but I hope nothing wrong will happen to him
The animation was good and the soundtrack was intense at some part which made the atmosphere more interesting
A good episode overall

Roberto is not well but I think Hiraga will be able to save him. I just can't imagine where he got cursed. Maybe when they saw Amy's corpse?

Because of this show, I distrust everyone hahahahah. My guess is that priest Julia is not as nice as it looks

That Father Julia is so beautiful. Haha.

So, Robert really is gonna die? And the prophecy is true? Please nooooo. Jeez.

Such a good episode. That scene with Robert alone in the room together with the eerie music scares the fuck outta me.
