This adaptation is excellent IMO. They really manage to squeeze stuff from different sections of the game without it being too awkward or inconsistent,emit some other sections,and stay true to the original material.
My only complaints are that the voice actors could put a little bit more emotion like they did in the game, the animation and characters look awkward at times and the pace may confuse some that didn't play the game but for me this anime stands for itself.
That was pretty intense.

About Takumi (Warning:I'm digging here)
I find his adaptation a bit 'less lame' and 'less amusing' and 'less loser' and 'less antisocial' and 'less crazy in the head' in some parts.

Damn, this is creepy. Random coincidences in this anime are fitting into my life. . . Anyway, not as gory as the first episode, but still was awesome.

the best part is that you dont know what is a delusion and not a delusion. it keeps you wondering what the hell is real and what is not.

Yua seemed too emotional to me in the end. She was almost shouting. In the game, she was like, "You will answer. I know you will. You know it, too. You know it, don't you?". Also,

SHI TTE RU YO NE?

That photo on Misumi's phone is strange. Seriously, Taku in an amusement park?

Yay, we get FES's song next time.

Sick series so far. Love his delusions.

Though poor Taku, he thinks he's going to make a friend then she turns out to be acting to find out what he knows about the murders...

Not really they are hints when they are delusions or not but what is bugging me is WTH is Yui exactly.......student or undercover posing as student or someone working with Rimi??

Then again the guy seems to live in a dream world where magical girls live in his bedroom and read his emails..

The director is clearly out of his element. For this show to be a horror, or a thriller or whatever, there is nothing in the direction that creates a sense of apprehension in the atmosphere for me. The main character is so out of his mind that I just keep thinking (ok, well this is probably just a delusion too...nothing to see here). There needs to be some balance to this guys delusions and just his overall personality to make the viewer feel like something is real, because if it doesn't happen then it can't be scary, it's just awkward.

The hell was that? Kid has some serious issues, yo.

And while I highly doubt it has any bearing on anything going on, anyone notice Taku is the only one in the entire 'effin school wearing green? I mean it's kind of sad it took me so long to realize that, but am I the only one that finds that odd? Perhaps it can have something to do with his truancy? Meh, anyone able to enlighten me?

And I've gotta admit, I'm still partially confused still as to what is a delusion and what isn't. They made it nice and obvious in the first episode, now it's a little more ambiguous, which makes this all the more fun obviously! I mean, when the lines between reality and fiction are blurred, who knows what kind of crazy things pop up? Not to mention, what more is reality than your perspective? If you perceive it to be real, is it real? So, what if these turn out to be more than just "delusions" in the end? Dun dun dun...

And I completely forgot to mention that. That was absolutely horrible, I threw a water bottle at my monitor out of frustration. I thought I had issues with women, hah!

A mix of Higurashi and NHK, but I think (and hope) this still stands on its own.

Seems like the main character is prone to hallucinate, but who knows where delusion ends and reality begins? This could go many ways, and I'm really looking forward to more.

It is pretty clear the Takumi has major fucking issues, multiple personalities, paranoia, almost a hikikomori and more.

I was at the edge of my seat during that last scene with Yua, awesome episode.

Bakayaro: I noticed the green pants and tie but I couldn't figure it out, maybe he's wearing last year's uniform or something, maybe he's imagining his whole school life, who knows with him this fucked up.

Looks like it's getting started now. The first half was quite boring, even if it was necessary.

It reminds me a bit of Higurashi but atm it's far from being as interesting as Higurashi was.

Really liked this episode, looking forward to where its going. i can understand all the things that are happening, its just linking them togheter thats the hard part. its pretty clear he suffers from a severe sort of schizophrenia or something and has some pshycic powers that let him see the next gen crimes before they are comitted. that is, if he indeed is shogun himself.

it looks as if he also suffers from memory loss, perhaps because he experience different things with different personalitys? if thats true, he could be the murder himself. he then recreated the scene, because he couldnt bear the thought of what he had done. Rimis face mby "leaked" from his sub-coiunscuisness and voila, now she is the murder in the case instead. the thing is the pictures. he got them before the murder was comitted. mby he killed that man as shogun, then altered the time or something..? bah, its 4 in the morning, no time to be thinking of things like this :P

You know, you are the closest to beginning getting it. Yes it seems that is the case EXACTLY as it stands but that may expand as this series expands. Also someone might be playing all along. Remember the second crime?? Pregnant man????.........That is the first occurrence where someone forced something unto a person whether after death or not.

Point being that same person might playing with something new on Takumi! REMEMBER the thing about a formula that ceases the existence of this world.....that formula whose formula is it??? Perhaps those of th one who gave him eyes. Perhaps even someone is monitoring Takumi through his very own eyes....a parasite perhaps.....BUT ONE THING--------->NOTHING IS 100% YET!

See, I thought that too, but really where exactly DOES the delusion end then? Not to mention, then it'd make this more or less Dallas the anime. With the exception being of course, that it'd be with some kid in the mental ward. I mean, let's face it, to imagine a story like the one he'd be putting out, you'd have to be insane. So, I'm kinda hoping it's last years uniform or some such, or maybe it'll play a significant role in the plot later on though that's kind of doubtful.

Well, back on the pants/tie thing, everyone wears blue. His sister, his fellow second years, and Yua who belongs to the third year. However, this brings up another point. Rimi more or less has to be real, or his friend wouldn't have recognized her as well. Unless he is just imagining school life, but then how did he meet Yua in the first place? Did she just randomly run into him or some such then? So if Rimi is real though, does he just somehow attach her face to the Next Gen crimes as Shogun?

Another thing, when he has delusions, maybe it's more of a black out and while he sees something, his body does another thing, causing him to have no recolection of what he does? IE: Shogun.

Dammit though, Annisa is one to something with the name =(

I finally understand why this is called Chaos;Head. His head is definitely in chaos. He can delude even the most peaceful situation into something psychotic. Taku is so messed up and I really want to know why. I know his living in a cargo adds to it but looks like there's more. It seems something happened after that amusement park outing he had with Rimi that made him completely lose trust in 3D girls and probably the whole world. It could also be his family since he's shunning away from them.

The Yua scene at the end was crazy. The way she repeated her questions and statements several times to justify that her predictions are right was scary. +_+

I want more Rimi.

Bakayaro, I noticed the green pants and tie as well. At first I thought maybe it had to do with him being in a different year than the other guys but his friend has blue pants too so that theory was out.

Split personalities are always a good plot twist. New characters will undoubtedly make this crazier. I'm wondering about the weapons and what they have to do with the show so far though.

You've played the entire VN?

Very interesting so far. That's pretty much all I can say until they reveal more info about Taku's situation. I love the thought of not knowing whether what Taku is seeing is actually real or not. This reminds me a lot of K1 of Onikakushi-hen, but in a more modern setting.

Bring on the Mahou Shojos!

i liked this episode
the delusions are getting weirder and... really hard to distinguish.
i think they are trying to make the delusions as real as possible... or something like that.
anyways, Rimi was cute this episode, contrary from her blood stained persona we saw last episode.
so, more characters are introduced, the investigators that is. i really wonder what type of role will they play.
Yua was cute the whole time. being moe.... but we all knew such moe wouldn't exist in the so called "3D" world.... poor takumi got trolled hard.
it seems like Rimi has some interest in takumi too... besides, why wouldn't takumi be able to remember her... this all smells fishy. interesting, to say the least.
also, i didn't see yua becoming such a character. it was probably part of the dilusion that she pointed that thing at takumi... but she seems to be some kind of detective.... which is rather interesting. and the thing about the logs is also interesting.
it seems like next episode we will be presented to yet another girl. yay?
hmm... the first half was kind of ok, the second part was ok too, and the end was interesting. i still have some expectations for this.

Great episode.
It's really interesting and makes you wonder what will happen next.
Seemed to me that Rimi did something for him to know her name, because her eyes were flashing a little bit in that scene. Very mysterious.

About Taku's green pants - actually, he wears blue ones in the game. So I don't think it has any plot importance.

The "hints" aren't always there and they don't always mean what you think :). They do this on purpose so you cant tell what's real and whats not. Keep your eyes on people's hands, clothes, and surroundings. One minute someone will have something in their hand the next they wont, one minute it will be morning the next it will be sunset. It's made to fuck with your mind.

For all we know his "real life" could be the delusion and his "delusions" could be real :).

I'm thoroughly enjoying this series to the fullest.

You're quite right about the direction, Chaos Head's director is not that good at expressing horror and mystery (at least compared to Higurashi or School Days' ones, who really created an ambiance for their shows) but if you just focus on plot development and characters it's actually pretty enjoyable. More of an intellectual anime than an atmosphere anime, and thus not as good as the references cited earlier, but a good horror/harem anime nevertheless.

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