I am really starting to like this show, which is bad I need sleep... Stop making me want to watch you with your humor, action, and drama all rolled up in one nice little bundle.

I really liked this episode! I've definitely been drawn into the story ^^! The characters are awesome, and they have such a great mix of characters! Poor Yuri though~! But at the same time, it was great to learn more about her!!

The Guild is approximately 19-20 levels down with varying depths. B17 is where Yuri and Otonashi talked about Yuri's past, B18 is the large tunnel where the Guild guys fielded their 'fail' cannon, so it's B20 or B19 counting the last ladder down or not, respectively.

Hmm another interesting concept they've thrown, you can recreate anything of form from your memory even from dirt in there.

From the looks of it the bearded guy from the Guild is the oldest character I have yet seen, the teachers in the school don't count since they're NPCs.
Nothing is an absolute reality, all is permitted.

So much action for one episode. This show is amazing. Not to mention the characters are adorable. On the other hand, it was sad hearing about Yuris past. Well, atleast it's understandable why she's fighting.

They did a good job showing off all the different characters here. I still think the cast is too big...but hey we'll wait and see.

Also....the guild. What's their story? Are they dead people too or NPC's? If they're people why are they underground and so willing to help the SSS?

Yuri's past was sad, but I feel like I would have cared more if they spent more time developing her as a character and getting us attached to her.

I actually found this episode pretty funny for an anime.

I like the opening just the pinao part and the animation song was ok. Don't really like the ending. Good back story by yuri. Better episode than the first.

Loved the new opening theme and it seems like the main character (Otoshino?) is in love with Yuri already.

What's with all "the op was awesome" ? It was already in Episode 1, it's not a new one. I love it nonetheless.
This was a fun episode, but all that drama about those people "dying" when in fact they do not...

Lol pretty funny episode that's for sure, I can see why people like this anime so much. Probably won't be one of my favorites just because the MC's don't really have the type of personality I like but glad I finally picked it up... Lets just hope it can keep being good.

The background story for Yuri was kind of nice, but kind of unrealistic. What sane robbers would just let one of the victims go around their house unsupervised? She could have easily grabbed a phone and called the cops or her parents. In a normal operation, they would get in, get out. 10 minutes is a loooong time to wait, considering that they would have no idea how long it'd take the cops to arrive or their parents. It was sad, but the situation was just.. uh

LOL I'm assuming they pulled the phone lines and checked that Yuri had no phone. But they are ruthless, INSANE robbers, that can kill children/adult without a BLINK of the eye. soooo cruel! but could definitely happen with heartless monsters. There's a Anthony Wong movie, dunno if you saw, called The Untold Story, shows justs what insane people can do.

regards to the episode, PRETTY GOOD episode! THE OPENING is BEAUTIFUL! MUCH better than the first ep 5/5! I think I can take a good guess now that angel is the cause of disappearing, so they gonna try to kill her.

Way better episode than the first episode, not that the first episode was bad...
But this one got my attention and is definitely one of my favorite episodes among the entire series.

>.> But now I'm curious... Who was your favorite death?

Mine was Hinata's strictly because: "Ahhhh, Yooooouuu Biiiiiitttccchhh...." If you guys watched the dubbed.

Beautiful opening. The first half of the episode was hilarious with everyone dying left and right.

Yuri's story was scary. I thought she was going to say that she was shot by the criminals as well, but I'll have to see in later episodes if it's revealed how she died.

I also noticed the more frantic and intense music.
The statement below is true.

Nice episode. Feel sorry for Yuri and her siblings. Fuck those murders, trying to be robbers. I was wondering why is the OP so similar to Clannad's. Then i realized it was performed by the same person. The Angel is like a freaking Terminator xD

Although I enjoy the series so far I am wondering as well if their motive for fighting would became a little bit more clear in the next episodes...
That being said, the whole story is very interesting and clever.

There's nothing to not like about this series. This is getting more awesome by the minute!

@ibrahim2712 Just because everyone haven't individually stated their reason to stay and fight I'm sure most of them atleast have somewhat idea of what they're doing.

Good to see focus on Yuri's character, sad past. She might be my fav character in the anime so far. I also liked the death traps and LOLd on the climbing scene. Doesn't bother me that they can respawn. AB just went up by two points. 8/10.

amazing episode :D

really well made!

it goes from planning to funny stuff then it goes depressing in a nicely flowed way ^^

lol it's really funny how the group keeps ignoring their team mates despite being badly hurt XD

poor TK being left out like that :(

lol that guy grabbing Yuri's to "hang" on to XD

poor Yuri with his sibling being killed like that.

fucking bastards.

do wonder how she managed to keep her memories?

Tenshin vs Yuri is amazing!

animation is really excellent!!

sometimes it feels like it's from a movie!

i expect more great things in the coming episodes!

Fast pacing and the action is nice, but is this series supposed to be suspenseful or funny? because it's neither so far. Especially since they can't even die and the jokes are kinda lame. The characters seem very much like troupes, also the settings don't make a whole lot of sense, but I'll keep watching.

The OP is beautiful.
With this setting you would expect a lot of gore, but I'm glad they didn't show it.(or I'm not ?)

Dat OP. ED's fine.

Hilarious episode, overall. Dem traps. Shiina and TK and Hinata, for the win.
But I do like the Yuri vs Angel scene.

I could totally ship Otonashi with Hinata. But there's Yuri and Angel. I'll just wait for further development.

Yuri's backstory. (T_T) I think there's more to it though.

Dem skills. We have Hand Sonic, Distortion, and now Delay. Freakin' awesome.

Otonashi is gaining guts. And he learns how to handle situations. Let's see where he can take himself.
I’m always searching for something, for someone. This feeling has possessed me I think, from that day… That day when the stars came falling.

It's good so far.
I was pretty sad at Yuri's past, but I don't think that's the reason she died.
I like the op and ed song.

T.K is already my favorite character. XD
I love how they don't care that he's sacrificing himself.
Yuri's past was depressing. The feels are just too strong. ;_;

I didn't like this episode that much.
I think the first one was more enjoyable. This episode was like an adventure B - movie, it has the same clichès.
The way they "died" was always so predictable and without any appeal that you began to think that someone's joking with you.
Ok, it's comedy and it doesn't take himself serious, but it is only a justification.
And by the way, this world is so terrible.
I would rather 5000x times prefer being obliterated than living in such a place.

The story of the leader was nothing spectacular.
I felt nothing.

Yuri's backstory was okay as it reveals why she doesn't want to be erased by Angel. I didn't care for the rest of the characters. Their "deaths" were funny though. Overall, this episode was just average.

Okay, it was more enjoyable then the first episode... not that it was bad, it just wasn't that entertaining, but it did its job by telling me, the viewer, what's going on. The anime seems to understand that. Also, should I be finding these deaths funny? And that backstory... I feel like it would of been more effective if they didn't tell the story right after all of those laughable deaths. Unless of course, that was the ease the backstory, but I really don't think it was that bad (bad referring to what happened in the story). But I do wonder how they're going to fend off the angel. Yeah, they moved to a different location, but won't it take time to rebuild, considering they were low on ammo.

Yeah, a better episode, but it still doesn't make much sense. At least Yuri's past was good.
