Finally got a chance to watch this today, and I'm pretty content with what happened. This episode actually contains the entirety of Chapter 3 of the manga, and around the first third of the 4th chapter.

Also, I've seen some of the theories in this thread, and they're kinda interesting, and that kind of thinking is good. If I remember correctly, they'll be going through different theories in order to stop Steel Beam Nanase, and they're gonna ask a lot of questions.

Pretty excited for the next episode. Looks like they'll finally explain both what Steel Beam Nanase is and what Kuro has become? Or maybe they'll explain the latter in a future episode.

Saki’s story made me think that somehow, Nanase is not something dead, but alive, like, if the girl faked her death and now appear like that, but her property to scare out youkais wouldn’t have sense. And Kurou appeared. The source of Nanase is the painting then, not Nanase’s death.
That's what I had in mind as well. Nanase's body was never confirmed, only her belongings. I have watched too many mystery anime where it's pretty obvious when someone isn't actually dead lol.

So whenever you ask me again, how I feel.
Please remember my answer is you.

Kotoko and her troll faces lmao

Saki is beautiful

We got another interesting mystery now. I'm looking forward to seeing more of Kurou' s abilities.

I love the dynamics shown between the characters in this show. It seems to be focussing on the nuances within their overlapping arcs.

We don't know what kind of people we truly are until the moment before our deaths.
As death comes to embrace you, you will realise what you are.
That's what death is, don't you think?

This was the kind of episode that would have probably been just fine if the torrent of exposition had all come organically, particularly if it had come from the result of going around, talking to people and investigating like an actual procedural. It did none of those things. Hell, I'm not sure Saki or Kotoko even left their chairs once the flashback exposition dump began and consumed the remaining two thirds of the episode.

It's a shame too because the back and forth between them at the start wasn't bad. Saki plays a much better straight man in just plain not putting up with Kotoko's smarmy snark than most anime characters do. But that's abandoned a third of the way into the episode and all the pertinent information is beamed directly into their heads from the internet, which is then conveyed in ten straight minutes of infodump, made more egregious by literally stumbling over the boyfriend fighting the boob ghost at the end of the episode. All that infodumping wasn't even leading them to finding it or the like.

So... are you telling me that after 2 years, Kotoko and Kurou remained the same? Welp, that's a disappointment :/ At least, tell me the "deflowered" comment wasn't just one of Kotoko's wild fantasies.

Another intriguing episode. Nanase's case seems quite interesting to follow and the scenes with Kotoko teasing Saki over and over again were too great. Looking forward to seeing what Kurou can bring in term of interactions to this already entertaining duo of ladies.

P.S.: Kotoko's interactions with the child spirit made me laugh until I noticed the dark implications -.-'

The interactions between Kotoko and Saki are great. And the plot is getting really interesting after a kinda bland start.

The police could only identify the idol's dead by the objects found around the corpse. This along with the fact that the ghost has her face erased casts doubts upon Nanase's dead, the corpse could be someone's else and she could be still alive. As for Steel Lady Nanase, it seems acceptable to think it's a ghost, since I can't imagine a human being capable of handling such a heavy beam.

Kuro is back, fighting Lady Steel Nanase, seems he has wasted no time during his absence. Looking forward to see his reaction on seeing his two girls together.

Because of opinions. Not everyone likes anime with long dialogue nor do they like love triangles and etc. it’s all based on preferences which is annoying because In/Spectre is really good :(

Really enjoying this after dropping Pet and ID due to them not being engaging enough - gives the grey-matter a bit of a workout but with a sprinkling of humor.

Interaction between Kotoko and Saki are priceless - not to trope.

An anime with a score of 7.5 is not low, especially if the score ranges from 1-10 . Now I can understand if the score was a 4 or below, but if we are using MAL scoring standards a score of 7 is actually pretty good or above average.

Kotoko sure likes to tease Kurou's ex. girlfriend XD What a troll!

Nanase is a big mystery and her case seems to have intensified during this episode. She's very terrifying! Hope to see her case solved.

Great episode! And Kurou finally appeared and already fighting the idol... interresting.

Saki and Kotoko were really amusing together. They have a similar way of deduction too. Nanase was hot, a shame that such a beauty died. Thou I think maybe she's actually alive and it's her sister that died.

We know more about Steel Lady Nanase past and I found Kotoko funny in this episode like always. Kuro appears at the end, weird, cuz I thought he wasn't going to appear in this arc.

The world has really became a terrible place to live in, there's nothing better than the anime world to forget about everything

good episode. But what about that skeleton? Is it visible and if so why did nobody see it, and if it's invisible to the human eye, did everyone see Kotoko floating in the air?

Interesting episode, I laughed a lot with Kotoko and Saki, especially when Kotoko teased Saki with being Kuro's new girlfriend.
It was hard to see how Saki distrusted Kotoko, especially when Kotoko called herself her ex-boyfriend's girlfriend, but for poor Kotoko the evidence only proved right to Saki, damn Kuro how can he be so unhappy having someone as adorable and loving as Kotoko, his face literally showed that every day is an agony with Kotoko.

Kotoko's face when Saki asked her where Kuro was was too adorable and every time she gave Saki ambiguous answers Kotoko's face was more fun to watch. Obviously Saki took advantage of this and hurt poor Kotoko by rubbing in her face how good Kuro was with her compared to Kotoko.
I quite liked the way Kotoko moved around the city, with the help of a Gashadokuro.

Leaving comedy aside, the episode gave us a lot of information about who the steel lady Nanase was in life, or how she was known before the idol Karin Nanase who was a young woman who stood out more than anything for her charisma and her huge breasts, but despite this, she was a little known idol and to make matters worse, she was involved in a scandal which gradually led to her premature death, which was quite grotesque and also explains why the appearance of The lady of steel has no face.

Both Saki and Kotoko do their research on Karin Nanase, but for Kotoko it is still strange that what the lady of steel really is, since she does not show personality and but does frighten every spirit or yokai that crosses her path, very frustrated Kotoko admits that she will have to ask Saki for help.

Kotoko is too naughty, she loves to scare Saki and I found the image of when Saki deduced that the little yokai was sent by Kotoko too adorable, but this naughty does not stop and Kotoko prepares the spirit of a child to indicate Saki where she will be, Kotoko's face when she leaves was pure gold.
Look who decides to appear, it seems that Kuro will have a tough fight with the steel lady Nanase in the next episode.

Lmao when Kotoko told the ghost kid to give Saki a surprise. This girl is a massive troll. Her giant skeleton ride is also banging.

I'm not fully sold on the story so far, but the entertaining cast makes up for it. Seriously one of the best character interactions I've seen in a long time. A great mix of humor, drama, and exposition.

I love Steel Lady Nanase or Karin, she got nothing on Saki in terms of hotness, tho.

Also lol @Koto trollface.

I think the sister has something to do with the steel lady, or perhaps it was all a fabrication of what people wanted from her ghost which caused her to become real

I really like the comedic Interaction between Saki and Kotoko, it really shines considering most of this episode is in a more serious tone

Get more serious tone again for these episodes one, comparing how comedic essence got blown up in previous sample. The mystery of the cases, at last reveal one by one by itself. At last, kurou reveal his self with more questionable attempt. Still love with the interaction to Kotoko and Saki at every scenes showed in these arc of queen of steel Nanase. Lets see the conclusion of this arc in the next episode....
