THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
That was amazing! The action and drama! This series is just getting better after the OP2......I forgot to mention but the OP2 contains really interesting message about IRL things......I will try to prove my point later on.....Some parts I want to talk about....Ok I don't know about DragonBall but heard about it....could this be a reference to that green guy?=>
ROFL!.....Izaya likes cartoons!=>
Anyone likes this game? I love it and is about time they put a part of it=>
Hmmm I don't know but does Shizuo really looks good with a bike helmet?=>
GIF time! Izaya cleaning his nails.....clean man I would say/Shizuo flashback of pawning that reporter was epic! It was shown at a different angle.....liked it!=>
Celty's motorcycle drifted was nice/Van slam of reporter was good but too bad they don't show how he gets hit and all=>
Erika and Anri avatars....managed to make some=>
Anyways best parts=>

Overall the episode was Saika epic.....

Are you kidding? The series was way better before Ep 13. Ever since then this show is turning into crap.

Well I can't wait until the Yellow Scarves arc. I have a feeling that will be more epic then the Slasher arc.

Eh,I don't think so.Well,that's your opinion i guess.
Slasher/Saika arc is interesting to me,but like you i'm looking forward to Yellow Scarves arc since that's one of my favorite arc in DRRR!! novel.

So the slasher that following Anri from previous episode is indeed the reporter.Now we know how badly he got owned by Shizuo in episode 7 & amaze with Shizuo strength.
Dennis (Russian Sushi owner) & Shiki from Awakasu-kai also appear when Shuji ask for information.And the scene with Shizuo jumping up and down on Celty's bike while chanting "I'll kill him I'll kill him" was pretty funny.This episode also shows that Saika can posses number of people.Shuji stabbed by Haruna(long hair chick) & he behave strangely with glowing red eye just implies that Haruna maybe the main host of Saika.I pity with Anri with her dream with her parent..there is something bad happen to them & Anri personality is different compare to her usual self.

Chatroom scene is turn creepy when the spammer(Saika) mentions Shizuo name & loves him.No wonder why the Slasher is stalking Shizuo.The part when Shuji says he "loves" Shizuo is disturbing (Saika influence) & Shizuo is ready to beat him up by ripping apart Togusa van door & march towards him.Will Shizuo able to kill him?
Oh boy things getting interesting with Haruna appear in-front of Anri in next episode:

yeah the scene in anri's dream is quite sad though they made it to be very colorful.
I'm curios about how she ends up with this current personality now (assume the old her was like in her dream)

and yeah hope the reporter still alive after that smash by shizuo ^^"

I don't think so either....it was good in the beginning but no doubt it's getting better to me like you Kagura89

Yeah this part shows it that it was him with the red glowing eyes in the beginning=>

Kagura89 said:

You mean Denis is this guy?=>
Shiki scene was amazing made a GIF out of it....the guy is so mean looking like and mafioso=>

Kagura89 said:

Yeah...made a GIF of that too.....too hilarious=>

Yeah that part was a little pathetic....he just gets like a poke with the knife and it's over so if it was not with the Saika then why would a normal knife affect him anyways? Also slasher looks nice with this angle=>

Kagura89 said:
I pity with Anri with her dream with her parent..there is something bad happen to them & Anri personality is different compare to her usual self.
Yeah that was sad but also so dreamland like.....made a GIF anyways of it because it was nice...particularly the cake part=>

Yeah! Freaked me out too.....that was scary for a little bit....scariest chat room scene yet.

I think he will KO him or slasher will appear to maybe save him?

Took another one of her Haruna.....OMG that's her! She looks like she was raped, had a abortion and traumatized in forever way......wow O_O is all I have to say to her expression.....word cannot describe it anymore.

The episode was okay, the atmosphere was basically brought across...the only thing I found a bit sad was how downplayed the encounter between Anri and Saika at the end of the episode was, because it was the start into the climax in Volume 2.
It's a rather subjective thing, but I imagined the whole scene a bit more mysterious and threatening...not just a sad old man franticly waving a knife around. But I understand that if they decided to keep the real tension for the real climax.

So next week starts the vol.2 finale, I'm excited to see how it turns out, because the anime series is really starting to get different due to them mixing later volumes together.
Waiting for: God Eater (PSP)

Love this episode as the previous one wasn't as epic as this one.

- Shizuo and Celty teamwork is just too awesome! I love seeing those two together. And for some reason I found Celty is gettin more moe by each of episode as since the time she is so open about being headless and in love with Shinra.
- Shizuo is too funny this episode.. As usual whenever he shows up.
- The otaku gang is great as usual. Walker blushing was just toooo cute! And of course Izaya is also too awesome with his threading toward the reporter. Though I laughed at hard that he watching a children program on TV. Okay, this episode was too much to fangirl for xD!
- Anri's dreamland gave out both dark feeling into it as we know the Anri now. ( at least for me it gave out that way)
- We got to see Shiki and Denis animated! Yay! I don't remember seeing them on the novel pic.
- And last, why do they always ending things in the good part!! I do wanted to see Shizuo beating the guy up for the third time

(and I can't wait to see Haruna in front of Shizuo x3)

From what had happened in the previous episode I was expecting more of this one. I did not like it that much. The story is still were it was on ep 14.

But the preview for next week's episode seems promising.

WTF cliffhanger D: I want more...
Yaay, lotsa Shizzy, and even Dotachin appeared x3
Is the reason that the Slasher is pursuing Shizuo just the fact that he's strong? oO weird motivation, but whatever.
So the reporter is the father of that molested girl...somehow I see her coming to the pedo-teacher to get her revenge. (That's what the preview hinted at, right?)

Well, Haruna was the girl involved with Creeper-Teacher in the past, so you figure there's gotta be some trauma there (and the preview certainly doesn't look good for Creeper-Teacher). That's probably why Anri was at her house in the first place.
Ha-cha!

I don't think the motivation is that weird: if you're a disembodied spirit of vengeance, you're going to want to inhabit the most powerful host available.

I didn't even take into account the possibility of the Slasher being a spirit without a body, thinking it would be too weird. But then I remembered it's a show about a headless Irish fairy that shacked up with an underground doctor who dissected her at a tender age of 4, among other things. So yeah. I revise my opinion.

I'm with the crowd that liked the first Arc better. For some reason i am not as excited for this show as much anymore.
Will have to wait for everything to unravel itself out next few episodes. The introduction of the reporter was sort of unnecessary, or at least for all the screen time he got. Hope there is a reason they followed him.
AKA: First half was a waste of time, second half was very good.

(Wasn't everybody not that into the first arc until like a few episodes later? This is clearly set up)

-Oh Shizuo and your "Kill kill kill kill kill" and your "there is a 0.000000000000000000000675% chance of killing someone with a stare" and your response to a crazed knife wielding manic is "Fine, I'll kill you." You're so my second favorite character.

-I'm the opposite of most opinions I guess since I'm still totally into the show ever since the beginning. I am eager to find out the mystery of the Slasher.

Looking forward to next episode, it looks super interesting with Haruna coming in and talking to Anri. c:

Great episode. I love Erika & Walker even more for referencing Yotsuba&! Also, badass truck attack from Togusa & co., even though it took Shizuo and the door of a van (Togusa won't be happy about that :D) to take down the current slasher

What an interesting episode. The first half did not bore me too much as seeing things like Simon (8D) and Izaya watching cartoons (made my day xD.) The second half was great though. Anri's dream was also quite interesting, maybe it was how she wish she could be? The one who took the spotlight of this episode again was Shizuo.

Looking forward to the next! Haruna in the preview sure does reminds me of Higurashi though, especially Rena.

This episode was awesome, because there was an excess of Shizuo and Simon and many food shots. I cannot wait for the next episode where they will hopefully fight it out. The OP and ED are beginning to grow on me.

Does anyone feel like Izaya looks a bit washed-out? Maybe it's the lack of the furry jacket.

What an unfortunate fate for the reporter man to get caught in a situation like this. So next episode seems to finally reveal what seems to be Saika's main host or even Haruna controlling Saika itself. All that's left is to figure out Haruna/Saika's motives. I'm thinking the teacher is definitely a reason that Haruna is involving herself with Anri.

Yeah basically it when down like this:

6 months in hospital from Shizou
Stabbed by the Slasher (his own daughter?)
Becomes a Slasher
Rammed by a Van
Rammed by a motorcycle
Then bone-crushed by Shizou + door.


Worst luck ever, lol. Hope the guy is okay.

Oh thanks for the clarification, I was confuzzled about the timeline during the episode.

Haha Shizuo raging is just epic.

Shizuo was total win in this episode. He looks so funny in a biker helmet. Is Celty afraid of aliens? 'Cause if she is, that'd be like the most hilarious thing ever.

The only problem I had with this episode was the lack of Shinra and Shingen. :(

It is freakin' scary! Without the BG music, the Slasher wouldn't be as ominous as I thought he/she would be.

This OP, isn't really bad though, is it? I don't see what people find oh so awful about it.

Hmm.. I've watched the episode, but I can't really recall what it was about : o
Only that.. There was a hell lot of awesome 8D

Or something, I dunno >.>
Protip: I don't really check the forums anymore, so if you want something, take it on my profile.
Is it time for my long-awaited return to the forums? щ(゚Д゚щ) Nope™, probably not.

Ahh it was awesome. I loved the chat... Izaya and his kitaaaa strike again! I guess we would never see Shizu-chan chats online... no computer would survive him... especially if it's anything like my computer that FREEZES and LAGS when I'm trying to watch DRRRR.. grrrr!

Anyway, great ep. Anri is still the most boring character, but the others more than make up for it... there were so many little things I liked about this ep, like Walker's novel, Celty and her aliens/cops trauma, Izaya and his... izayaness .... Dotachin and his sexy voice, Shizu-chan and his crazy <333

I'm surprised he went at that guy with just the door and not the entire van ^^

I think her parents have something behind Haruna. Said they died when the slashings started but didn't say from it......now that I think of it the way Shingen knows what is happening he could have something to do with this. And one more thing...........

Shizuo FTW!!!

Kill Kill Kill Kill Kill....definitely my favorite now.

But when Shizuo appear,Saika in Shuji says i love you to Shizuo...that prompt Shizuo ripping Togusa van door & crushing Shuji.Donno if he live after that.


I was wondering why Saika wanted to target Anri.

Guess it hasn't been answered yet.

I don't like the character narrating and the first part was quite boring. Still a good episode overall though. Haruna appears next episode, can't wait. But, still no Kida? I miss Kida-kun already.

Forget about my earlier post.
It maybe difficult to answer your question because it involves spoilers & i swore myself to not spoil anything to this forum.But one thing i can say is Haruna(the suspected slasher) is meeting with Anri next episode so you can have your answer there.Be patient okay :)
