THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Ganta enters the "dog race" and somehow this kid survives when all these convicts die, mostly due to Shiro. just who/what is Shiro anyway?

Well, at least hes less of a wimp now and did realize Shiro was saving him each time finally. Is it me or do the guards can't see Shiro? Is she allowed to be on the male dorm side? Also, what happend to the male lead's parents? Also the warden is so annoying. And everyone that is a convict sure is taking it easy. When that warden exposed her back so many times, she easily could have been a hostage by multiple convicts.

If Shiro gets any less screen time, I'm going to drop this.

Haa that episode was pretty hardcore but overall it was really good. I also can't wait to see who's Shiro exactly...

The opening is pretty awesome too!

I;m now officially worried. The episode was pretty good but anyone who's read the manga knows they essentially just wrote Azami out of the plotline in their attempt to get to the more hardcore stuff faster.

It's gonna make it awkward as hell to do a Season 2(provided the series sells) since she's half the damn reason for one of the story arcs....

On another note, damn that opening song is epic.

Was kinda OKAY'ish episode. Didnt follow up on every single bit of manga.




In my opinion that is a pretty big gap, because Azami plays a significant role later on in manga. This leads me to believe they will either go with un-original ending on this anime or will introduce said character later on.
However, the effect is already lost so it wont be as good.

Nuff said, fine episode.

Loved the episode! Glad we got to see the opening as well.
I do hope they stick to the manga and don't actually attempt to finish the whole series in 12 eps though.

Shiro is the most obvious, cliché like character. At any rate, you should be aware of WHO SHE IS, by episode 4-5.

I don't like how they censored all the good parts and they didn't introduce that one character. Other than all those things, I love this anime. Shiro protects Ganta from all the dangers that he faced. Ganta protects Shiro at the end for the sake of the two of them eating Anpan together.

I gave the 1st episode a 5/10. I stand by that decision. Episode 2 gets an 8/10. Wow... talk about an improvement. Everything was better. I really mean EVERYTHING was better. Hell, we even got some comedy. TBH, 1 point is only for the OP. Yes, the OP is so good, it deserves a point.

Hmm okay I loved the OP and the music all around, its one of this animes strong suits

While I am slightly disappointed that they skipped through some moments in the manga, I suppose its necessary for the anime to get anywhere in the limited episodes they have.

Azami is really important though so I hope they find a different way to introduce her.

Also I liked how they expanded on the past of the big thug guy, being a 6-time gold medal fighter, and beating up an actress...makes more sense as to why he was feared other than his size.

4/5 episode for the music and Shiro!

If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

OP = I like... even though its not my favorite type of music.. but I like .. xD;;

I like that about her c:
so much gore scenes,
feel bad for those who died :I oh well
good episode
yet, I wonder what Shiro is, but its best to wait wouldn't be fun at all if they told us at the first episode or second episode xD

The OP is so trippy, I love it. The song is in English too, I always love when anime has English openings.

"I'm gonna rape and kill you one of these days, you ****" lol

I love that music where Ganta realizes that he has to win no matter what. That is one fucked up show, watching people die...but I guess they just think it's "special effects".

The final showdown reminds me of a game from Mario Party or something lol.

What I wanted in this episode: some new characters. Like

Gimme those, right now. Because they're damn awesome.
Well, good episode, anyway. And I'm getting pretty attached to having Shiro voiced by Hanazawa Kana.

Anyway, something I've always found weird, Shiro's eyebrows. They look just as weird in the manga.

On another note, I'm actually kinda glad they're skipping Azami. Never liked her, despite being kinda important.

It seems they will go with a different direction in the story, by cutting some scenes and characters here and there.
And what's with the camera movements in the final race? That crazy back and forth movement was a little messed up, not to talk about when the panels disappeared and then reappear in the next shot and so on...
Oh manglobe...

I found that weird too, even more now that's animated, maybe because she's an albino?

Wow, that's not entertainment, that's total massacre. How can you honestly call that a race, it's a bloody survival game. When someone in the crowd said "Those are awesome special effects" all I was thinking was "THIS IS INSANE." The whole thing is like a SAW remake.

It didn't feel as dramatic as it was in the manga, plus there wasn't much gore in the scenes as i hoped there would be, though still a good ep =3

Eh... it was alright. Lots of gore and the only real good part was Ganta finally stopping to be such a wimp. Too bad he's still clueless. How does he not figure that guy from the infirmary stole his candy, or realize until the end that Shiro was saving his ass the whole race?
Ara ara.

Terrible episode. I was so happy how closely the first episode followed the manga, but now they remove the introduction of a key character? What the hell man, where is Azami?

They probably removed her since her core arc won't be animated. Not this season at least.

They would be taking out a large chunk of the story and plot progression if they don't animate her later arc. PLUS earlier on she plays a few side roles into developing Gantas personality. I just don't get it, why would they change it that much.

Well, this episode was wonderful, but have characters that still a mystery
"Dog Race" = tense, mainly the part of the "big guy" fall down...
Main character don't pleases so much to me :x, as "when I'm in trouble" I turn man...



4/5
i'm waiting for next episode...
Lay on, lay on, lay on, lay on...

I see that they removed some important scenes and characters that were in the manga, which means that the producers will somehow alter the events in order to fit the story into 12 episodes. I don't really like this since I was hoping that the anime would be more faithfull to the manga. Oh, and the censorship is very annoying.

I don't mind the censoring at the moment, as long as they release an uncensored version on the dvd. That would be cool. (especially more so if it got licensed)

I guess this is another reason why you shouldn't make anime after manga....cause even though anime alone would stand good , because of everyone reading the manga beforehand they would all say it's ''crap compared to manga'' and so on...

I personally liked the episode [ though i would prefer the gore to STOP being censored so bad ] The OP is epic...love it. After this anime is over I will probably start reading the manga.

I love the anime, but honestly the should if follow the manga, i wonder what kind of plot they will come up with as azami wasn't in the dog race and they havent showed her. And one more thing i think manga was much better if u compare the episode 2 to the manga nr 2 or 3, lets just hope they will come up with something good :P

Cool episode. I didn't read the manga (nor do I plan to), so I couldn't care less what changes they make. All I can say is that I like the anime so far and I'll keep watching it until the end.

Would you imbeciles stop comparing it to the manga? Is there a law somehwere that says it has to be 100% true to the manga? No, so shut up. Seesh... so they wrote one charatcer out, big deal. It's not like they can't introduce her later. And they moved one scene from the caffeteria to the field, again, big whoop. If you don't like it, don't watch it, but stop throwing a fit, nobody cares about your whining. Worry if there's no Azami when RedMan gets ahead of her. Then we can talk.

Are you serious? Have you never heard of the roman gladitorial combat. People like to watch this sort of blood sport, it's happened to slaves, criminals and POW's throughout history.
So have you seen school trips being held at these sort of places throughout history?

Anyways, amazing episode though the censors are killing the epic gore scenes.
Its seems like no prison rules apply to Shiro, except the candy one~ liking her character.
The BGM at the end is quiet similar to SAW's main theme.
Love the OP. Its animation>>>>song
Definitely reading the manga soon.

How badly would it suck if you got a major flu bug?

I didn't think too much of Shiro's character in this episode, but she was amazing this time 'round. I'm a sucker for her happy-go-lucky personality while facing death. Now I just have to figure out what the heck is up with her clothes.

The warden reminds me so much of a Armstrong's sister, Olivier, from Fullmetal Alchemist.

I'm starting to get worried about this show. My favorite is Azami and I was eager to see her animated. I won't still conclude that she will be removed from this show like most of you guys think. I still have hopes for her to show up, Manglobe doesn't stray from the manga this much yet. They are so faithful for any adaptations so far(at least 90% of manga adaptation or so)

I didn't expect this show to be so good. Poor Ganta, just basically thrown in one of the worst situations imaginable where he could die at any moment. Also, Shiro is so cute, I love her, even if she is a little bizarre.
