I don't understand why a summary is needed when most of the people posting on these threads have watched the episode.

I guess they watched the raw or live airing. For more popular/active series it makes sense to have one, but the subs come out for this so quickly...meh.

Episode was okay. Nice to have backstory but it was a bit of a plot dump. And also argh Kushimatsu, keeping secrets in anime always leads to bad things.

Meh. He does that all the time (love your sig!)

-This may have been a plot dump, but it definitely gave some good character development for Zakuro and the twins (oh yeah, I don't really think the twins are that annoying anymore). I watched the scene where Agemaki put on Zakuro's necklace like three times XD

-The little onion head children are really cute to me now.

-Yay! They played the SusukihotaruXRiken ED song I like. And I just realized the guy singing is actually Riken's voice actor. Damn, he's got a nice voice

I can't get enough of this show. I just get pulled in more and more with each episode. And omg Bonbori and Hozuki were just sooo cute as little kids! Too adorable. I am dying to know about Zakuro's mother as well, and about her father as well. This is just getting more interesting.

Another very good episode. I cannot get more. They continued the Bonbori and Hozuki character development showing their past and i have to say it was really sad. somehow i feel the woman who came everyday for them was actually their mother and the guy wanting to kill them was their father.

it also showed that kushimatsu was actually with zakuro when she was still with her mother.

Hozuki and Bonbori's past +1
Hozuki, Bonbori and Hanakiri moments +1
How the three girls meet Zakuro +1
Agemaki tying the pendant around Zakuro's neck. PRICELESS!
(apparently she never allowed anyone else to touch that pendant she got from her mother. Agemaki did it.)

Also, Crappyroll made error in translating ranks. Agemaki is a Second Lieutenant. (one rank below Hanadate.)

That kid soldier is really hopeless, he is escorted be 2 girls all day and still gets angry at them!!

What's the mystery behind Zakuro's mother, and why does Zakuro keeps hearing those voices?
Hozuki and Bonbori seem to have had a hard past, but Zakuro seems to be the only one haunted by her past i wonder how that will turn out.

Ganryu is such a crybaby!
The twins had a really sad past.
It's time for Zakuro to quit the tsun part and become more dere.
Kushimatsu is really getting annoying with all the secret keeping. I have a feeling it's going to back fire in the future.

I admire Hozuki and Bonbori, those two are really brave ladies and it's really sad that their caretaker got killed. Although every female in the story had a hard past, most of them moved on save for Zakuro whose haunted by her past pretty much her entire life. Ganryu needs to grow up, so what if two women saved his ass, no reason to get upset and cry, look at Agemaki, he's saved by Zakuro most of the time and he isn't crying and even acknowledges it, it's life, and he needs to deal with it.

Episode provided some back story, kind of nice to see Zakuro getting along with Agemaki. Ganryu needs to stop being a wuss though.

He not only acknowledges it, he wishes to grow from it and beable to to gain some form of strength, Gayru just cries seemingly..

Zakuro's past will be confronted with her partner at her side I assume- They are a good pairing.

Time for Lt - ClicheLoveTriangle and probably an antagonist to vanish hes the one draw back to the series.

Her mystery probably has something to do with the under world

Those pumpkin twins are so adorable. They just make me smile everytime I hear them talk.

I did not like when Kushimatsu denied Zakuro the knowledge she requested...if indeed, in later episodes it's revealed that had she told Zakuro at the time, some evil could have been averted, I'll be really pissed off.

Ganryu needs to grow up, such a wuss. Come on, a pair of twins simpering over you 24/7 and you shout at them because they saved your lucky ass? Please, do grow up.

Agemaki is such a nice guy...I'm glad he's not an Usui-type (Kaichou wa Maid Sama) and that he has his weak points and strong points. Would love to see more of his cowardly and hilarious antics around other demons he's afraid of.

Can't wait for epi 7! :)

Well he is one and he knows it. His reaction to his wuss-ness was depicted in a fine way so as to show his issues of inexperience. Fighting a creepy monster (who in no way resembles anything normal) for the 1st time can be hectic enough to make any human freeze.

The twins past is so sad. They didn't learn how to speak because they were isolated T__T

I have to say i am happy Ganryu apologized for being an annoying depressed twit. Makes me view him in a better light. I have to say a lot of background information in this one, but i am sad that i was distracted throughout the episode. At least i refocused in for Zakuro's moment.

I have to say this show is just one awesome romantic scene after the other, although it was obvious they got nothing accomplished plot wise most of the time. Hey as long as it stays enjoyable i am willing to watch for a very long time ;) (The final ep. count hasn't been decided yet?)

Next ep looks liike it's going to be interesting, can't wait for it! Still loving the op and ed songs ;P

Nothing biggy lol. thanks for thanking me :) as for added information, other than Toyosaki Aki (Bonbori) and Kaji Yuuki (Hanakiri) the rest of the 5 male and female leads are already really popular. Nakahara Mai (Zakuro, Furukawa Nagisa and Ryuuguu Rena, Tokiha Mai being her most popular roles), Horie Yui (Hoozuki, Tsukimiya Ayu, Hanyuu, Sawachika Eri, Amamiya Manami, Yuuki Cross), Hanzawa Kana (Susukihotaru, Tachibana Kanade, Sunohara Anri, Kobato) are three of the most popular female seiyuu out there. And Hino Satoshi (Riken, Sakai Yuuji, Hiraga Saito, Kamui) and Sakurai Takahiro (Agemaki, Kururugi Suzaku, Kanda Yuu, Azuma Yuuhei, Cloud Strife, Kusuriuri) are already well established seiyuu in anime. This anime is full of win win seiyuu. and I love the roles they are playing.

If that name of yours coming from linalee and lockon, then you are already more than welcomed. i love both of them :D

Yeah, I forgot, she did the braintumor role of yui. Dont take it personally, because I have personal hate for k-on! ever since that braintumor anime got to become the AotY instead of Clannad AS. K-on! is a light year behind anything at the level of Clannad AS.

But with Bonbori, she is now amongst my looking-forward-to list.

Yeah, I suspected the woman was their mother as well. I don't think the guy was their father, though. Didn't Kushimatsu explain in an earlier episode something about demons spiriting away human woman and that was how half-spirits are created? If that's the case that guy who was her husband can't be their father, and it would explain why he had so much hatred for the twins (despite them also being half-spirits).

Lovely episode. The cute moments in this were seriously off the charts. Yay for more character development. Every pairing had their moments in this episode. It was just awesome. I love this show. :)

Edit: I forgot to mention.. Kushimatsu's true form is so pretty! Fluffy fox. I want to hug her.

This was a relaxing episode compared to last week, which was nice. Hoozuki and Bonbori were adorable as children but their past was so sad. Still no answers to Zakuro's past. The pendant scene was my favorite.

i thought if pregnant women are spirited away thats when hanyuus are born. i think i will re-watch that episode. cant remember though. thanks for pointing that out.

by the looks of it, it will really have 24-26 episodes, which is just awesome

also Zakuro was so kawaii when she ate that biscuit

This episode wasn't as good as the previous ones, too much background detail stuffed into one episode, but I still give it 5-stars. This anime is becoming one of my all time favorite show if they keep this up :)

Let's just hope that this will indeed be 24-26 episodes long.

Ah, I think you're right! Pregnant women. That's right. Still, does that make the father the human or the spirit?

I've heard a lot of good things about that show, but no, I've never seen it. I heard it was "episodic" so I wasn't sure how I'd like it since I like anime that has an over-arcing plot. I might have to give it a try anyways, though.

I thought it was a good episode. I liked getting some information on the girls' pasts. However, I felt that there was a lot of "she's so strong. She puts on a such a brave face. How does she keep smiling" stuff going on for each respective girl.

Since they mentioned when pregnant women are spirited away and not women becoming pregnant after being spirited away, i can assume it makes the human their father. well, thats my assumption. may be it will be revealed later. boy i had to wait some 180 episodes to know about the mother of Sessumaru. So its nothing big for me. :P

But still, every episode is so nice. most of the youkai in natsume were ugly. but their stories were so touching. i remember a youkai waiting for a person (human) it met who promised to meet it, but never showing up. and the youkai remained waiting there for 50 years. i mean 50 years! because spirits never break their promise. i was so touched by that episode. till this day, natsume remains one of my all time fav anime. well this one is certainly on the right track. i am already in love with all four girls.

I'm really liking this show. Susukihotaru is probably my favorite, and I love Hanazawa Kana's voice too, so it's perfect imo. Although, I think all the girls are awesome. Twins were annoying at first, but really growing on me.

I suppose so. I hope they do a bit more explaining on their characteristics as spirits later on. The episode count hasn't been released yet, so I can only hope it's over 20 and not a 12 episode series.

And yeah, I definitely hear you about the Sesshomaru bit. I went and read the manga where the anime left off because I became impatient only to have them release The Final Act about a year later. XD

To erveine: This is just my personal reference (+ my Japanese to English translation practice) because I'm not good at remembering when I have lots more anime to watch (especially with the characters' names). You don't have to click to see my post, or you can correct what I got wrong.

This show is top on my list of fav anime this season. I really love Zakuro, her character.

5/5

She learns nothing of her mother in this episode and is in a bad mood for the rest of the ep, that is not fun at all.

Quite a sweet episode.I'm really glad we learnt more about Bonbori and Hoozuki and we also found that everyone's personality got a flip as the time passed. Lovely scenes between Zakuro and Agemaki...the necklace scene was great!
Can't wait for the next one :D

I also like the story of the twins. They were so cute as kids.
