Too bad for all those people who dropped it because of the gay stuff in episode 8. I knew there wasn't going to be more of it. Easily the best episode since episode 8.

It's getting really really hard to not click on that Novel spoilers thread.

What happened to symbv?

5/5 because I actually had goosebumps for the last 5 minutes of this episode. The pacing, art, sountrack were all top-notch.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who saw those feet. This anime really does have the most bizarre creatures I've seen in a while.

I see that Satoru already naturally took the leader position from Shun, in case that... You know.

Make sense considering that he wants to be like Shun.

Finally the show is back to it's former first 3 episodes feeling.

It was also a very artsy episode, love the storybook style and the 2D flat scenery.

This episode was so amazing and the best episode since episode 4. So now we know either Shun is one of those cat things or that demon killer creature. And children being controlled by the parents, the suspense is just killing me.

Great episode but the design of the demon karma it's seems like a pokemon XD i think would better with a much evil design, now it seems a puppy XD

But what do you think about the idea that this anime would be better in a movie format, or max 2 OVA? For me the serialization breaks the tension created!

This is one of those shows that is like no other. I can'y find any comparison to any other show that gives the same feeling. Why don't they make more of this kind i wonder... I hope they translate the novel soon, it's a too epic fantasy work not to get licensed somewhere...

And my fkin god the music was on a level above epicness. The song played while Saki was having flashbacks was very similar to a Delerium song. I went straight to listening to their Karma album afetr this it fits SO DAMN well to the sieries and is one of my absolute obsessions in terms of music. I am just sooooo happy I lived to see this show. May not be for everyone's taste but for those who like these things... it just hit the spot like totally out of nowhere

Best ep. yet IMO. Everything was good in this ep.

Dat cliff hanger. It was pretty suspenseful... One "lion-beast" type animal seen, damn creepy not knowing where the other one could be.

Also an interesting development there with Saki and a past sibling. Poor girl ;-;

From what I heard of that RAW as of now, that’s Yasumi, Saki’s sister and guess what? I think she might even had a older sister named Saeko.


I swear that it was Yoshimi not Yasumi. Where's Saeko from? Are you talking about 'Sacchan'? That was Saki. (Pretty sure)

WOW. This episode is so. I miss Shun ;.; Satoru is being unexpectedly mature. :D Changes for the good?

I feel as if last week's episode was years ago. This episode is ridiculously intense. When Maria suddenly appeared at the window. TT.TT This anime is so amazing. I can't wait for next week.

Wow this episode was amazing! I wonder how the "copycats" can kill the special ability users? Maybe the strange things around their heads work like these hypnotizing lights of the "evil minoshiros"? And why are the theachers and so on able to controll them?
So many questions...I hope to get answers in the next episode.
Also I'm not really bothered by the artstyle from the preview. I kind of think the eyes of the characters look more lively, so I might even prefer that style...

Absolutely agree with you.
This series is pretty unique. I seriously feel like I'm in another world while watching it.
Top-notch music.

Great action-packed episode with a load of suspense delivered in the end!

So far, let's see. We learn that Saki had possibly two older sisters, her 'middle' sister's name being Yoshima. We also confirm that they are trying to either 'wipe out' Shun or maybe make Shun one of those 'cats'? I wonder if those cats are a different species all together. Also, the whole time while the gang was taking risky steps to find out what happened to Shun, I was wondering why the Council hasn't caught on yet. Apparently they already know a lot and the trail that Mamoru and Maria left behind asking so many students is easy to discover. And cameras, hidden mics, etc. This society could be that advanced it they want to, but obviously (as we realize from the electricity conversation) the whole community is stuck in a mystical sort of middle ages, utopia based place with all the 'good' stuff from the past time periods to the current modern. However, does the Council follow that rule? And to what extent? Do the 'bells' on the rope that was tied across the river just that or does it really take tiny snap shots if any sound is heard? What about those tanks that kept the cats locked up. What are they made of? Are they a new invention or one taken and adapted from the past?

We're facing a lot of paradoxes here, which does make the whole 'rebellion' thrilling but questionable because of the ease it's being done with. Only the emotional trauma and suspense is what makes it seem so necessary and frightening. But, good art this episode, nice original drawings (even though the cats look kind of weird with their 'heel' like shoes).

Also, I'd like to know how Shun is exactly dealt with. Is he killed? Is he made a 'cat'? Could he possibly be put in a certain jail where the Council uses people like him in secret because they're so talented? We don't really know how the society really works. We just know they can't do most things and question and etc. but we don't know how tight the boundaries really are. Since the 'utopia' is a rather newly developed empire (I'm supposing, from what the Minishiro said), you'd think they'd keep a tighter hold the first few hundred years.

Anyways, nice hinting with the color red and the flashbacks. I hope we get to divulge in their pasts a bit and are able to understand the 'rules' of the society better. Awesome episode and hoping even better ones will come! :P

Really great episode, I was on edge the entire time. Art was good and the music really added to the suspense. Just keeps getting better with each episode. Like others have said, too bad for the people who dropped this due to episode 8. Their loss.

Seems like Shun finally lost it and went berserk, but I keep finding myself with more questions than answers at the end of each episode. I guess that's what makes this anime so great. It's going to be interesting to see if he's really turned karma demon.

Saki's sibling's name is Yoshimi, not Yasumi. I listened to it like three or four times just to be sure and Saki did say Yoshimi and the subtitles say so aswell.

Saki's mother kind of pissed me off a little. She's lost children before (Yoshimi and Saeko) and doesn't want to lose Saki too, I get that much...but they can't possibly think they can keep all the wierd things going on secret and believe everyone will simply accept it. The truth always comes out, one way or another.

Anyway, can't wait until next week.

Amazing episode. The build up to her remembering she had a sister before, and then Maria suddenly showing up at the window was chilling. Shun is possibly a monster now as well?

THIS is why I picked up this show.. great storytelling. Can't wait for next episode.

Good episode, it didn't really answer many questions but it is starting to get into the heart of the mysteries. I really don't think Shun is gonna get killed off or anything though.

Still, not as good as the Queerat arc, that arc reminded of those good old historical-like animes.

Holy fuck. Great episode, Shun becoming a Karma Demon? Probably couldn't control his canti or something.


Giving how extremist their society seem to be,I beleive that they are trying to execute Shun under the basis that he could kill because for whatever reason the psychological limiter they are creating when they are giving children their cantus isn't working properly anymore on him.
That's probably how they see people that can kill with their cantus: demon. No matter if they killed or not, if they aren't affected by the 'limiter' they are a dangerous existence that could destroy their society and thus they must be eliminated.

SilentTruth said:
Damn, I think Shun just turn into animal there.
This is getting intense.


Village is sending Copycats to kill Shun and Saki is also pursuing him. Copycats are urban legends to most people in the village, that's why it shocked Saki.
This is most likely not Shun, actually going by how the show is doing, it's almost sure that this isn't Shun.

This has to be the best episode so far, stuff got really serious and I love it this way.
I read that Saki probably has 2 older sisters, and that makes a lot of sense.
Next episode will be intense, I hope they don't fuck it up.

Suddenly, it's more intense than ever. A shadowy government-thing which might always be watching you and can make people disappear, played completely seriously, is one of the best threats you can get to start with. Particularly when the protagonists don't have any knowledgeable person on their side, they're completely isolated. Add to this the fact that it's playing with fundamental parts of humanity like the sex drive and the ability to envision violence. And add to that you can't even trust your memories... And then they're using techniques like you set off the alarm, but nothing happens... I haven't watched anything like this for a long time. Plus it's not just empty paranoia, the idea of new human abilities making people think such things are now necessary is intensely interesting. The aesthetics of setting it all against beautiful environments is truly striking.

Best show this season. And that's up against some very high-quality competition.

Whoa, shit is about to hit the fan as it seems.

Also, it looks like their "government" is commiting genocide against people they deem "undesirable".

Also, I highly doubt Shun actually turned into some demon of sorts. He just thought things that the government deems dangerous. My theory is that they tried to do him in or something, and he didn't like that and probably returned the favor (due to his limiter not in place)

Also, while I know that the government is trying to create a more peaceful society, without those "fiends" killing stuff left right and center just because they can... well, I'd best quote Nietzsche here: "He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster."
I want Rambo in a mecha-suit with a laser-chainsaw gun that fires nuclear warheads, fighting the love-child of Predator, Alien, a group of Bangladeshi terrorists, and Satan. (Actually that would be a pretty sick show) - StopDropAndBowl

Best episode in ages. DAT suspense! I really hope that the next one will be just as good.

Is it only me or are all the creatures in the anime just looking more and more ridiculous? First the quarrets, then the library, the general and now the copycats. They could have made all these creatures a lot more epic and exciting. I like the part when they hold the "copycats" up in the air, because you then only could see their shadow, but otherwise blah. At least the people looks nice.

Not exactly the music, but all the sounds in this episode are extraordinary. It would be a shame if the animation didn't catch up.

Good episode once in a while, finally.

And here we go someone yet again complaining about episode 5's animation. I mean unless you really know what your talking about, such as if you've actually taken classes in animation, then this makes your opinion sound very stupid. I mean your entitled to your preference in animation, but it doesn't make it crappy.

I mean in episode 5 they actually implemented the 4th level of shading, but you probably wouldn't know that.
