That was a very nice episode. I saw it coming that Wei was going to kill Alice, though I was thinking of different reasons. Making Wei think he spilled his blood on Hei like he wanted to with it actually being Hei's own blood was a pretty smart move. Looking forward to more.

Nice episode indeed. I still cant get used to Hei acting like the way he does when he was with Misaki. His fight with Wei was pretty cool, his little trick was smart indeed. Looking forward to the next episode.

Not much to say, really. Loved the fight between Wei and Hei.

It was an awesome episode.

Oh ya, I found that quiet weird unique how he can switch his character like that. :D

That was indeed an awesome episode as far as fights are concerned. I also love all of the subtle humour in this show. Can't wait for more :)

Huh.
Hei's quick personality changes makes him quite interesting...And from the look of the next episode preview it seems we will be seeing more of the background on the gate and stuff next time...nice.

Great episode. The thing that ticked me off though was that NO ONE USED A GUN. I mean cmon, blood doesnt have nearly the reach of a gun. Tch.

Wei killing Alice... I too expected that.

Hei is such a damn good actor... but a lot of it is his real emotions too... which is "unusual" for a Contractor.

So... who's the fastest and cutting themselves and spewing blood at others or themselves? Hei vs Wei... Advantage, Wei.

Misaki looks even better as a female in distress wearing a Chinese dress... Saito to the rescue!!! Doh, he acted like a man and protected her. This is where Saito should have yelled, "I will die for my woman!"

Oh crap, Hei faked out Wei! And now for the huge exploding entrance and ALPHA COUNTER!

Winner... Hei!!! Now the getaway... Only Misaki and Saito left in the room...

Had Saito yelled out that line mentioned above, Misaki would have scolded him to point where Saito would blush and crap his pants. She has THAT kind of power and influence over people... especially in a Chinese dress!

Kanami and Misaki... good scene. Enuff said.

Seems like Wei didn't die... no shooting star... Round 1, Hei... Round Two, TBD.

Heck of an episode! Now... what's next?

Wooow.... Wei sure has a bloody power @_@

But I don't think anyone thought that Alice was ACTUALLY gonna live through that.... I didn't really like her that much.. good riddance I guess >.<

Like many others, I saw Wei killing Alice. (good. she bugged me. D<)
The first half of the episode I thought Hei acting all useless and scared was kind of funny. It's creepy how he can change personalities like that. Although, his speech on betrayals by friends...that looked real. Interesting.

When Hei jumped through the window and punched Wei in the face, and the music went all loud and action-y, I seriously wanted to jump up and down shouting "GO HEI, GO! KICK HIS ASS!" ...but I couldn't. Cause it's midnight here. xD If only...

Hei is so amazing. He's freakishly good at acting to fit into any role needed to complete the mission. But I still love it when he bursts out in contractor garb and kicks some major arse!

Hei is a damn good actor! You never know who he is going to be all the time. Interesting last frame where her car flew past him walking up the street and neither recognized the other...so I can assume that Miaski will still continue to chase after Hei (a good woman always gets her man!)

i loled when saitou and misaki entered the room and saw others dead like if it wasn't the first time that plan was used.

wei's remuneration is shedding blood, interesting how that perfectly matches his abilities.

next ep seems interesting, can't wait to see what that's all about.

I really love this anime, but I am finding it to be a bit predictable.. It doesn't seem to matter how many times they try to throw the story around, you can still see exactly what is coming.. I think it's what is happening behind the scenes that is much more interesting than what the single episodes are showing..

I am definitely looking forward to seeing some background on the gate in next ep though.. I am wondering why some contractors remunerations are so much harsher than others, is it like punishment fits the crime? If you can do this much damage, then you have to take this much in return? Why does one chick get to drink beer and another have to drink the blood of children?

Man, that girl had a crappy boyfriend.

And why was he an elf? I never found out why he's an elf!!!

Oh well, Hei was great, as always. Hei vs Wei was pretty awesome (a Chinese showdown?). Sounds like blood-boy didn't die for good though, if I'm understanding the ending correctly.

Good episode and nice fight scene. Wei has an odd power. You'd think he'd faint after losing so much blood like that. He's like Gambit, except the only thing he can make explode is his blood.

Is Misaki supposed to come off as a bumbling nitwit? Because that's exactly how I'm seeing her. She's never accomplished a single thing by any standard in the whole series and she frequently gets the wool pulled over her eyes or is left in the dust by other players in whatever action is going on. Despite being a detective, she's passive and useless. Is this a deliberate joke or something?

well since she's playing the role of non contractor and someone in search of BK201, i guess we're supposed to assume she doesn't know anything and isnt supposed to be able to do anything and just gets saved by other ppl (mainly hei) i guess she's just a damsel in distress

It's amusing to see Hei acting all innocent and clueless knowing that everything he did was just an act. Alice's death was quite tragic. The burden was too heavy for her to bear so that she had to resort to such gruesome measures.

My favorite arc to now. Alice was actually very much of a great character, It's too bad she got betrayed. But I really think Misaki is to blame - how couldn't she feel what her best friend was going through?
I wonder if Hei is so powerful because he's not depending on anyone...
