THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I think this is the calm before the storm. Too bad Kurenai will be only 13 episodes long, because it just has so much potential to double its number of episodes.

I really liked this episode, they included Murasaki's Shichi-go-san part. She looked really cute in that kimono <3

Damn I love this show. I'm going to be really sad at the end :(

I was a little surprised at the end. I thought he would've been able to defend himself a little better despite the surprise attack, but I'm not blaming him. The end was so sad *cry*

Murasaki was so cute in the kimono. I loved how that went. And man, what a way to end the episode. The scene with Murasaki and Shinkurou was so touching.

Judging from this episode, next one will be more action-oriented. 13 episodes isn't long but it's adequate for the series.

Murasaki and Shinkurou's relationship is so sweet... I almost started crying at the end of the episode.

Oh man, now things are starting to get really good. Loving the plot development. As people have already mentioned, kind of sad to see this is only 13 episodes long, but at least this assures some really good episodes in the next five.

I just can't keep noticing the Genji Monogatari references....Murasaki, especially....
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Good episode. So it seems the next episodes will be more dramatic than we've seen so far.

And that "It's unfortunate, but I can't seem to please you as I am now" part really made me laugh ^^ I mean, you ever heard a 7-year-old say that?

Yep, it's seriously the best anime I have watched in years, it's almost perfect since the beginning and I find it really frustrating that there's only four episodes left. Oh and the references to the Genji Monogatari are just becoming bigger and bigger, even though Murasaki plays both the roles of the Genji and lady Murasaki ;) (read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tale_of_Genji if you want, that should help you understand the name and character of Murasaki better).

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

Holly Shit! I hope It will not another Shadow star Narutaru. Great manga, perfect story, but only 13 episodes anime without end. I was shocked, when I noticed, that there are only 13 episodes and since 8 ep something really happened.
90% of Anime is shit, but then, 90% of everything is shit.

This is slowly turning into The Professional (aka. Léon). I have a feeling Murasaki will get kidnapped and Shinkurou will just barge into the complex and start taking people out with his blade arm lol. At least thats what I'm hopping for, a dramatic ending.

Kure-nai is just so heartwarming every week I can't help but feel all warm and fuzzy after every episode, even if it was a little tense at the end this time. I hope the tail end of this series keeps pace as its shaping up to be one of my favorite shows ever.

Agh! Are there really only four episodes left?! (MAL and ANN both list this as having 12 episodes.) As much as I love this series as it is, it will disappoint me terribly if it ends without some explanation of the Inner Sanctum. But, they may just be saving that for the last few episodes, so ... Either way, if it ends at 12, I will be really sad to part with all the wonderful characters in this series.

But anyway, good episode, and it looks like things are really moving along.

Very good episode, the final scene with Shinkurou and Murasaki was great, and next episode will probably be a good one with this build-up.

IMO 12-13 episode shows tend to more entertaining than 24-26 episode shows. Kure-nai is shaping up for a spectacular ending.

I like how the bond between Kurenai and Murasaki gets deeper with every episode. It is touching.

I expect to see some action but looks like I have to wait for the next episode.

And you'd be surprised at what a surprise attack can do. :3


And indeed; next episode seems to be more action oriented. Definitely looking forward to it.

This episode was really good and the ending was so sad and cute. But Shinkurou still really annoys me with how weak he his. He needs to grow a pair and stand up for himself and Murasaki.

He knows that the only thing strong inside of him is the blade thing.
But it seems he doesn't want to use it.
I think there much more to reveal.


Kurenai is pretty dense. (I mean in both sences. [1: Shinkurou is dense / 2: This animes had loads of content inside a single episode. which is great. xD])

Well I remember that when I was watching Kaiji, MAL originally listed it as 13 but it turned out to really be 26. Maybe that will be the case here, or maybe we might even get a season 2. Guess we will just have to wait to see how things turn out.

Anyway, this was another amazing episode and I'm surprised that nobody commented on the bad fortune that Murasaki got at the shrine. I have a feeling this series is not going to have a happy ending.

I really love the dialog of this show. It's very interesting.

Murasaki is adorable, she already is, and she look especially adorable in a Kimono. Cute ^_^

Finally Shinkurou realize how big his job really is, the plot should get interesting from now on

The end was really touching. I just love the fact that, despite only having taken care of Murasaki for a short time, Shinkurou is willing to pack up and leave his home (or whatever that dingy apartment is) to keep and protect her.

I can't stop loving how paternal Shinkurou acts toward Murasaki.

Great episode! Though it did reek of "calm before the storm"-ness... which is totally not a bad thing. It was a great way to build up the suspense. I can't wait to see how things develop from here on out!

Murasaki is definitely one very 'different' seven year-old! She was quite adorable in her pink kimono though. :)

That part where Murasaki was talking about pleasing Shinkurou... cute as fuck. LOL

This anime has so much potential, the story is getting much deeper, if only it was more than just 12 episodes. :(

Why did those two guys attacked now? they've known that place for quite some time right? All they did was warn Shinkurou that they're into them.
