It was an interesting start, but I was expecting a little more of violence and suspense though.

I really liked how this story went. Too much love can be a bad thing. The whole rabbit babies coming out of the womb is kind of scary though and if I ever saw that, I already know that I would be out of there in 5 seconds flat.

that was a really harsh lesson! As if their daughter dying wasn't enough.

wee-erd

(and ok that mass poisoning is a massive stretch of scientific plausibility)

kinda liked it though. The detective looks like an 80s action hero!

I think I went in with my expectations too high. I had loved the manga and the anime is starting out pretty well but the manga was definitely better. Still decent and worth watching, though.

Definitely had some disturbing scenes that I was not expecting. Interesting.

A bit of a preachy moral there, but not a poor first episode.

Let's see how deep the rabbit hole goes.

hu so the daughter was a crazed drug user. never knew rabbits could be so creeppy and the lesson here is dont spoil your kids and what way to learn it. Though I wonder if she saw them still as babies.

Mama, you baka -_- The father tried to follow the contract but he was the one who ended up dead. At least she fulfilled Alice's last wishes twice :P

The detective looks like Ryo Saeba wearing a blonde mullet lol I'd like to see more weird animals~

Ok,at first i thought the seller hypnotized the family into seeing the rabbit as their child. however,the detective saw the children too. was he hypnotized too?and when?

also,how can a rabbit create 1000 rabbits and at the same time be a rare species lol? it would have taken over the world by now XD

not to mention how the detective acted like a huge asshole in the beginning even though he had no evidence whatsoever.

the atmosphere and moral were great,but i really disliked that we didnt get to understand how stuff was done,and there were some plotholes too.

so?it being anime doesnt mean that its plotholes shouldnt be pointed out and discussed,especially when it is a mystery anime.

who said it became a girl?i fully think the seller hypnotized the family into thinking the rabbit was a girl,just like he does to all other victims in the three other episodes. the plothole in that part was when did he hypnotize the detective.

as for your ghost argument,if ghosts are part of the anime's world then that isnt an issue,but if their mere existance creates a plot hole then it is an issue. the issue isnt the existance of something,the issue is if it creates a plothole.

either way,the other episodes are much better,and i enjoyed the series as a whole so much that i rated it a 10 for enjoyment. So it isnt like i dislike it. far from it. but liking it doesnt mean i shouldnt point out its plotholes.

so if victims and detective was hipnotized it means tehy saw what pet shop owner want them to see and fast breeding rabits here is no the issue at all and dont need proper explenation how fast they can breed or cant if it is hipnozis thye still believe evry shit they needed to believe

This reminds me of the better parts of Hell Girl, but with a greater emphasis on karmic retribution via deals with a devil-like entity. Holy crap that got intense real fast.

Lesson here is do not over love your children. Learn to scold them or they will suffer in future because of that love.
