Ah, I felt sorry for Tamaki. She deserves better.

Murasaki was found out. I wonder what will happen now....
And thus it is now the real start...I guess D:.

Tamaki D:

But what an episode. The first half was a blast to watch and the the setup afterwards was great. I am getting pumped up for all this. It was so funny when Murasaki told Shinkurou to break up with Yuuno.

Heh.. Murasaki claiming Shinkurou is a lolicon and wanting him to pick herself over Yuuno. That part made me laugh ^^.

Apparently it's getting more serious from now on..

Imma quite confused here... Does Murasaki <3 Shinkurou or is it just Tamaki's influence '^' ?

Nway, we should be seeing Shinkurou use his horn very soon...(anticipanting for ages)

Really good episode. Again, the interaction between the characters was brilliant. I can't wait for the storyline to continue in the next ep. It's going to get good now that they are going to be trying to get Murasaki back.

"Who's a lolicon?!"
Heh...
Enjoyable as always, seems the lighter episodes are coming to an end with the Kuhouin's finding Murasaki's location.

if you like action then drop this series and watch shounen.....

The plot has advanced so much in this episode no matter how you look at it....

Loved the ep. Looking forward to seeing how the Kuhoins are gonna try to get Murasaki back.

and as a note, If all anime had nothing but action, it would be no different from crappy American animation. Not saying action anime is bad, but anime is supposed to be diverse, and I personally think Kurenai is very good. It has great plot and character development!

Another great episode. I loved it that Tamaki got some character development, and the Kuhouin story slowly being more and more revealed. Eagerly awaiting the next episode~

Very happy about this episode. I was starting to worry that they would focus too much on character development, and leave the actual plot for the last few episodes (assuming this is still 12-13 eps)

And Tamaki deserved it~!

Anime will probably deviate from the novels since that end might be viewed as pedo.

If it's manga or novel doesn't matter. Next time I'm not making the effort of editing the post and adding the spoiler tag, I'll simply delete the post. So try to use those tags if you're going to mention even the slightest spoiler, thanks!


Episode was great, funny and serious at the same time. Looking forward to how the story develops in the next episodes.

OMG I love how they did Tamaki's character development. Theyre all such real persons. The part where they went back to the main story didnt interest me as much tho,
i rather prefer the random situations Murasaki gets in..

Another amazing episode. The first half was just awesome and fun to watch and then we got to the second half and it was very interesting and advanced the plot quite a bit. This show continues to deliver.

Wow, Kurenai never ceases to amaze me, the pace is just great (as are the animation and art) the dialogues are the best I have ever seen in an anime and the setting is terrific too, let alone the characters which are close to perfection. It will be one of the very best animes of the 2000's for me with Gankutsu Ou if it can remain at the same level on 26 episodes, but I fear there'll only be 12 as stated on ANN, and so, the series should be rushed near the end :/

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Seriously, drop the series if you want action that much... Personally I'm enjoying this quite a bit.

Lolicon ftw! Also, I want some handwarmers too. ;3

And it does seem like its going to be more serious from now on.

How conveniant Yayoi disappears from the show when Murasaki goes on her little trip to uni and thus is discovered. Everything's weak about this show, its beyond frustrating, and if its true about how the story plays out in the novel, it makes me actually go from dislike to pure hating Kure-nai.

From Yayoi disappearance while Murasaki goes to the uni I started feeling the incoherence of the story. Before that Epi 1 to 6 there was only a story setup and "Fill times" scenes without any purpose (like public bath scene where nothing really happened). I hope from now on the story development start more aggressively. I don't feel attached to this series but I hope they will fix it in the remaining Episodes.

Murasaki and Tamaki get a little heart to heart going. I didn't know Tamaki was such a cobra when it comes to men.

Truly an enciclopedia of men-women relationships.

Also lol-ed at Murasaki at the end."I am a good woman,that's why you became a lolicon." lol

I thought it was a pretty good episode, although I did feel bad for Tamaki. She probably would have been better off not catching sight of her ex with his "new" girlfriend. The guy was so wimpy that she had no choice, really... and in any case, she deserves better.

I guess it was just a matter of time before the Kuhoin dude/Murasaki's father found out where Benika hid her. Of course, she probably wouldn't have been found out if Tamaki hadn't taken her out... Ugh. I kind of wish Tamaki and Yamie weren't irresponsible in that way, and that they actually let Murasaki just follow Shinkurou and Benika's orders to not go outside. Oh well! Guess this will get the real storyline moving for real, now.

Just as I was getting kind of tired of slice-of-life, it bust out from it.

It was interesting that it showed that "freedom" is not a paradise via Tamaki's romantic troubles (with a well-done sudden shift in tone), but then made an implicit argument for it by showing the highly structured world of the Inner Sanctuary does not prevent the same problems and yet creates some more. It's nice to see some actual theming in an anime show.

Now that I see it mentioned in this thread though, Yayoi did seem conveniently absent and incompetent in her vigil.

Tamaki was my favourite character before this ep due to how she 'schooled' the loli about the relationships of women with men and how to control timid men, such as the lead. The "What's a lolicon?" question being answered with something along the lines of "It means the lead loves you" was PRICELESS. The way she mixes real-life truths with trolling is just...

What made this ep my favourite so far in the series was how Tamaki was first presented as a steal-other-girls-men-for-fun bitch, with the ability to judge whether couples will break up or not, and then - only a few seconds later - she was begging a guy not to dump her, with a kid brought along as a last resort to avoid being dumped. Her personality and weaknesses as a human were put on display alongside each other in such a slick manner that I was able to accept her as the woman she is, with everything but what she needs to sustain a relationship.

In your face Tamaki! teaching Murasaki shitty stuff and not only that if that Satoshi was telling the truth that Tamaki always hits him then their break up was for the best. Yeah she was about to hit him...Fucking violent slut. She don't even go to class... no hope for this one.

Not only that the influence that bitch has on Murasaki... now the show is kinda implying that Murasaki's a love interest too for Shinkurou.. that's just fucking disgusting man. Also because she brought Murasaki to her university and later to that fast food (she brought Murasaki to Shinkurou's school too) Murasaki has been found out. Fucking bitch.

Seriously Shinkurou is surrounded by terrible people on that shitty apartment... he should reconsider living in that place now that a child is with him.

What's up with all those "Tamaki deserves better" posts? Sure, she's fun to watch and her trolling is entertaining ("What is a lolicon?" "It means he likes you,") but she was abusive to her boyfriend. That's not okay just because she's a woman, the man was clearly afraid of her. I actually like her character because it's quite complex, but it doesn't mean she's a good person.
Anyway, I liked this episode, I just hope Murasaki doesn't turn out to be Shinkurou's love interest. I never would have guessed if it wasn't for the comments because the series doesn't sexualize her at all, but of it happens, I'm gonna hate this show. It would be too creepy.
