As much as I appreciate more Chinatsu since she's awesome, the gunfight was retarded. That one guy who looks like Sully from Uncharted (can't remember his name) had multiple chances to shoot both of the Orchestra guys in the back with his pistol but he didn't take any of those opportunities.

When he did finally fire, he essentially shouted "HEY GUYS I'M ABOUT TO SHOOT YOU SO YOU BETTER PROTECT YOURSELF" and gave them plenty of time to raise the riot shield to protect themselves.

Not only that, but sharkman can shoot two snipers (who seemingly just sat there watching the fight rather than actually trying to fire) at that distance perfectly, but can't hit a kid running in a straight line towards them? I'm fine with movie logic usually but that's just going too far.

God damn it. The first couple of episodes were great fun and entertaining, but this was a massive let down. Even Black Lagoon didn't pull this shit to such a ridiculous level and that was obviously a huge source of inspiration for this series.

I have my problems with the shoot-out, but it was a good episode apart from that. And I actually like the Chinatsu. 4/5.

The women are so fucking amazing in this anime. Valmet and her crush on Koko is adorable.

its strange, i don't think i know what this series is actually trying to be, its a bit slow paced for an action, i hope that becomes a factor of originality that i like about it

If you haven't dropped this series after this 3rd EP, you're lying to yourself about how good this piece of shit anime is.

THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Shoot out was intense although silly at times. Also, I find it funny Jonah was running guns blazing in the open and not get hit once. Usual movie shootout logic.


There was quite alot of nonsense in this episode.

Lutz was standing perfectly to the side of those two, but instead of shooting them dead, he is calling for backup?

And the bad guys can't hit Jonah, but they can hit snipers 5 stories up?

Lots of nonsense...

still like the show though.

Ah, it's so nice to watch this again! I'm glad I decided to pick up where I left; I've read almost the whole manga, but for once I like the anime better. Dunno why, but it keeps a better hold of my attention.

Koko kissing Jonah on the cheek was nice, although I'm still all for Koko x Valmet.

Pretty great episode.
Chinatsu is growing me. Has that same smile as Koko and cute.Ha they tell her she don't have panties.
Johnan is badass by trying to shoot him by running. He looks like Riley from boondocks a little lol.
That gun magic at the beginning was very great.
5/5

Jesus Christ please don't become another promising series ruined by shit gunfights like Black Lagoon.

This gunfight was pretty atrocious, I can't stand people standing out in the open and not getting shot. Not to mention charging straight at someone who has a riot shield and an assault rifle would NEVER fucking work. It's not entertaining to watch like a well thought out gunfight, it's just stupid. Anyone else notice that when Big guy ran out of ammo and dropped the riot shield, Jonah and whats-his-face just fucking sat there for no reason instead of shooting them in the goddamn back? YOU MAKE NO SENSE.

Oh, and this:

Awesome episode ... Orchestra eh? Yeah, Chinatsu certainly is ... interesting :P Obsessed with making "music" out of people's screams and stuff eh ... well they've got some pretty freaking cool weapons to go along with it at least? XD
Jonah skipping his classes ... tsk tsk! Following Koko and Valmet on their date eh? Well I guess it's a good thing he did ... since they were being targeted by Orchestra D: Jonah trying to protect Koko was super cute though :3
Logic because hitting snipers from so far away ... and then not getting hit while Jonah was charging at him LOL XD Yeah, important people are never really hit are they :P Still, awesome and fun to watch ... not to mention some pretty sweet BGM to go with it :D

ha shes naked under that skirt and dam that was brutal. In still would have looked even if she lacked the assests i wanted. Boo school work. ok no panties girls has a thing for shark mouth. Johna getting cheek kiss was a bit weird and it always seems cops suck at these situations. The gun fight was pretty cool and the back and forth talking was entertaining.

"Gunfire is a symphony of farts."

This show kind of seems like a poor man's version of Black Lagoon, but every once in a while it pulls off something laugh-out-loud hilarious.

That shootout was ridiculous, Jonah 'dodging' all the bullets coming his way while Valmet on the other hand managed to get hit after a couple of bullets.

Still, its anime...

This pretty much sums up everything I came in here to say. I've learned to accept things like this but it's still annoying.

For an anime featuring guns basically as the main theme, running straight ahead into an ak-47 and not getting a single scratch after almost an entire clip is just downright silly. Interesting premises for the show, but these guys should at least look like they can shift into evasive maneuvers during gun fights :l

Makes no sense why they would do this to drag shit around. Just kill the SOB team to move to other enemies? How hard is to understand viewers would love to see many bad guys to be shot and variations. Don’t drag the shit. I noticed it a lot in animes nowadays.



yeah, this group is really getting on my nerves. my brother and i found so many holes when they could have ended it long ago.

i don't see how you see him as a brat.

Glad I'm not the only one who thought the gunfight this episode was kinda poorly portrayed ... especially Jonah's suicidal charge directly into the face of a firing AK-47 on full auto. You'd think a richochet or stray shot at least would've had a good chance of hitting him, much less with the guy firing directly at him the whole time. Especially considering he later got two police snipers a few minutes later with headshots from well further away. OK, he was under fire himself and shooting around a tower shield, but they could've at least shown the bullets whizzing by millimeters from Jonah's screaming face.



glad to see i'm not the only one thinking that was stupid and extremely childish of him. they want to make him this all mature "dead" person and then he does nonsensical things.

that proves how powerfully he was blushing, that's all.

-----
the beginning when they shot that man up...dang, that was on horrific end.

the gun scene (i suspect there will be at least one every episode) was boring so i can't say much about that. this episode was more about questions than anything else so you can't really say anything until the next one(s).

oh and the part when the dude was talking to jonah and the music played, it sounded so much alike to the kuroshitsuji OST. low and behold it's the same composer :P he's really good doing dark themes and he certainly doesn't fall short on this.

side note: why doesn't everyone just call jonah jiyona instead of dropping the j sound? it's really kinda annoying to heard them say "yona" because i would have never guessed they were trying to say jonah.

speaking of jonah, that's a very specific name. i don't think i've heard 2 boys in my life called that name. the only other one i've heard is the one from that supermarket show and that's fictional anyway.

to add more to that, the japanese word for the show is "yorumungando". they didn't add the "ji" part on that either.

Yeah, I felt the same - at this range even airsoft guns would be more deadly than what was happening on screen, I think I'll spare myself watching the rest of the show and move on to something else. After all people praise this show as a weaker Black Lagoon, and I wasn't particularly fond of BL, too.

That's some signature, eh?

I get how it works now, police and hired goons are instant kill regardless of how nutty the shot would be but anyone else no chance of hitting anywhere near them.

Like I get wanting to prolong fights or do whatever but it really kills it if its so damn unbelievable that it makes it hard to watch.

Lol, that little plaza gunfight was just silly, they shot full auto each other from few meters and nothing happens for several minutes. But else it was entertaining.

This show is stupid and ridiculous, several of the characters repeatedly come out of cover while shooting or getting shot at but nobody can hit any but air. Meanwhile the cops who were on the roof had a clear shoot to snipe the hitman but instead get sniped despite being barely visible, from the ground by one of the hit man with an AK - one of the most notoriously inaccurate assault rifles ever made. Yeah I get it, plot armor but at least write a more plausible scenario, what I'm seeing is just freaking laziness.

I agree that whole firefight was just silly.
