do not quote me on this but the sales are pretty poor or mediocre, i could have sworn i heard that from a few people here, i do know its not a huge success at least.


If anyone told you that, they don't know what they are talking about because the first Blu-ray/DVD release is coming out on the 23rd of January.

I absolutely love this series. Not for the plot as much as the way it's trolling everything surrounding it. Ever since it's become obvious that the world pretty much is affected by one girl, you just know that the anime is trying some dangerous. But I love what happens.

By no means I'd say this is a serious series and it has to be taken lightly but to be honest I don't think it aims to be serious. I think it's the first troll series I watched that actually has a plot that goes well. I can't even find words to describe the series xD I get surprised with every epi and it always makes me laugh. I know this sounds like I'm ridiculing the series but no. For me, its aim isn't a serious plot about world's destruction (and I'd be kinda surprised to see ppl watching it with that kind of thinking!) but who trolls the other the best with theories and moves and generally everything xD

After this epi, I'm sure Aika will have the last laugh xD

ok then, thats reassuring that my info is full of shit

This show better sell then, it sure as shit deserves it especially since its one of the more original shounens to release in years, i like how its actually, you know.....smart and doesnt rely on fight scenes to sell the story. It can spend 4 episodes in a row in the same spot and make it not only entertaining but intriguing and make progress while in 1 area, like seriously how many plot points and twists have been resolved int he past 4 episodes, that is just damn impressive

In other words, fuck you japan if this doesnt sell

Watching it after the manga was a good idea, after all. It's much easier to understand~ And Yoshino and Mahiro getting attacked wasn't such a shock this time, either... |D


Exactly what I was going to say... I seriously almost had a heart attack when I saw that in the manga. lol

i just re-watched the second half of the episode and I think that the final monologue (which I think was from the Tempest), said when Hakaze was flying with Yoshino, was actually recited by Aika's voice actress, not Hakaze's voice actress.

If so, that adds even more to the overall atmosphere.

Holy smokes! Hakaze takes the stage!
I didn't expect Yoshino and Mahiro to be disposed by the tree just like that since they have no use anymore!

Dang! Judging from the preview...
Looks exciting since I think there is some sort of timeskip and Samon to order Mahiro to kill Yoshino.

Lol, hakaze seems kinda fond of yoshino. For some reason, I guessed that this would happen even before the series started....idk why

But that was definitely Aika's voice actress talking at the end, that's not Hakaze's condescending tone, if she has any.

Good episode. The ending was so shocking, so sudden and brutal. The tree of Genesis needs to die.Doesn't Hakaze have some kind of influence over the tree, can she get that thing to calm down? Aika is yet to be seen, where is that chick? I feel like she's pulling the strings. Lol at Samon , that guy is forever freaking out. And Yoshino's face says he didn't think Hakaze would be THAT hot. Hakaze is so cute <3

Even though I know they'll be okay, how could they do that to Yoshino and Mahiro, to me -_-. I'd read the manga to continue but I like being suprised with this anime because I never know where it'll go.
What if Aika's killer is actually herself? I also think maybe Yoshino and Hakaze-san would be good for eachother?

There is a CM (commercial) for the video releases now on the official website:

http://www.zetsuen.net/movie.html

It is CM #5 (currently in the upper left of the double stack of commercials and PVs)

BTW - the PVs and CMs in general are quite good - I like PV 1 in particular because it uses so much of the symphonic BGM.

But getting back to the video release - ouch - that is going to be painfully expensive: 2 episodes per volume... Oh well, it's only money...

(BTW - keep an eye on the butterfly that sits on the chosen button in the left selection column... it keeps on fluttering its wings from time to time... LOL)

you dumbass, if hes spoiling something then dont call him out on it, you are just going confirm hes spoiling something while otherwise we would see it as random speculation and not take note of it

In other words YOU, technically just spoiled future events.....great job bud

My theory why Yoshino and Mashiro were attacked is because if both Hakaze and Samon are using their power to heal them there is no one who can stop the Tree of Genesis from completely reforming. It knew they wouldn't die.

Woah huge misunderstanding there. I'm just simply using the power of deduction combined with the information that has been presented thus far AND the way this anime seems to work. It's the kind that strikes me as one to explore all possibilities, this was just one that came to mind.

Additionally, I'm just going to assume that you assume everyone who posts speculations is a spoiling troll and leave it at that.

At this point we can't be sure which tree tried to take out either or both of Yoshino and Mahiro and for what purpose. Even Hakaze is unsure about the motives and actions of the ToG, while there is no clear indication of who is the mage of the ToE (if there is one).

This is actually my favourite new show this season. It may be because I can watch it in a high quality print (through CR), or simply because I'm getting my fix of Tempest quotes (I saw Sir Derek Jacobi in an RSC production which widely credited him as being the best Prospero in over a hundred years), or even because Hakaze is pretty easy on the eyes...but boy, this is good!

Or maybe because mahiro was a threat to hakaze's life, since she said if it were the tree of genesis that killed aika, he could kill her, and with the huge conflict right now between yoshino and mahiro, about boyfriends and other things, it would be better to just kill them off for hakaze's sake. Besides, both te protagonists played their part in the tree of genesis' hands, so they are of no use.

I feel so bad for you if you saw the past 5 episodes as 1 scene, cause it ha sbeen so much more than that, especially since its resolved and introduced multiple major plot points

Awesome episode! Hakaze finally made it to the current timeline with Yoshino and Mahiro. That sure was a major storm. Mahiro and Yoshino got stabbed by tree branches and the like. Crazy as hell. Hakaze with her ponytail and being naked was quite nice, lol. :P Also liked those subtle Hakaze x Yoshino moments.

Heck yeah! So ZnT is still continuing next season. Samon asks Mahiro to kill Yoshino eh?! Can't wait!

This show is really good, but it's not really popular compared to other fall shows eh? I'm really glad I chose to watch this, this could be the best of this season.

Btw, watching how Tree of Genesis came out, I have *cough* weird *cough* imagination on how Hakaze will calm the trees. Oh, pardon me :P
Waiting for next week anime gives me another reason to live.

I was like "WHAT THE HECK" when both main characters were (apparently) killed in a matter of seconds!
The preview seems odd. Are they dead now and the series takes place in "heaven"?
I am really looking forward to next week!

I liked that tree on tree action but wow! Why Yoshino? I had guessed that Hakaze's nakedness would be the highlight of the episode but wow was I wrong.

Can't wait for next week! I just hope that they don't ruin it by ending it there.

Perhaps you can elaborate how the logic of the trees is being used as a deux ex machina?


This episode indeed gives me a sense of wonder kind of awesome feeling. The comeback of Hakaze and how she took control of things (see how Samon could not even voice any bit of dissent once she is back), how things suddenly turned several magnitudes up on urgency and intensity with both trees getting out of control (and on a global scale), and then how both main characters would be mortally wounded so quickly and easily (ok I know they will survive but the fact that they suffered a wound that will kill them very soon if Hakaze and Samon did not use magic to save them is still a breathtaking development). Very good episode.

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

You do have a point, but i dont think it counts as deus ex machina if its totally not going in anyone but the tree's favor, from the looks of it hakaze is being used just like yoshino and mahiro were, and she will be disposed of after she is done

So the missile really may be leading to her getting screwed over

Never thought id ever say this but, someone kill this fucking tree, it deserves to die.

You should of been able to tell within the first episode that this ISNT an action show, why wouldnt you expect alot of talking? The only other option is get generic and waste time on pointless fights or sit there in silence.
