I must have not been paying attention...they've already killed 10 people? I only remember maybe 5. Perhaps I'm wrong, but if they haven't killed 10 in the show, what's the point in saying they've killed ten at this point? A lazy way to try and display the've made progress?

Rin is a pretty lame character. We get this scene now that shows she was told that something bad may happen, and she shouldn't blame the person for it, and for what reason? It only weakens her character by having her try to half-ass out of the decisions she made, and that's just what happened. It's like she never got any training.

And the boy running and screaming out of the house was kinda hilarious. It seemed like they just had to show him have a reaction just to get him out of there.

The first part was good and there was some meaning behind this dialogue/confrontation but unfortunately the second was really weak with an awful fight and inconsistent developments. Could have been much, much better, I'm a bit dissapointed by this episode overall.

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

At the start she wanted to kill Anotsu and anyone who killed her family.
Now Rin plans to kill just Anotsu...at least thats how she feels right now.

Good episode. The writing has really improved for the later part of this show. This episode was well written and quite thought provoking for me. As for the ten people, I remember Manji killing some random unimportant people in some episodes. If you include them it's probably ten that have been killed.

ahhh shesshhh...with Manji is all good..when Rin....mannn she annoys heck out of me!!! her character wise and everything..just tick me off..like shut up beeattchh...lol.

keep wanting to get revenge for her parents and kill mostly anotsu..in the end she's just an annoying arsss ...urgghh anyone with me in this? and her fighting moves..whatever its call when she threw those spiky weapon..superrrrrrrr annoying! that's all she can do! cry cry cry and then...manji-sannn!..darn beatch...lol..sorry for being a Rin's haterz but sometimes she's ruin the image of the manga and anime..and Araya is right...so dumb and stuppid of her,,showing up to her enemy's face and thinking all talk can solve the problem..should have know it better, ironically how she always or sometimes end up in enemy's trap whom she wanted to killed yet she barely get much armed from them...tschhh...nevertherless,,,in later volumes...17-21..she's gettting better and make me less hating her..lol.

btw..i see no point when Araya arrange those drawers and make Manji arrange it too for them to fight..lol..those amateurs aren't they. its like their playing hide and seek in the small room.

The development o f the episode was good, but the fight was quite week, could be better, hope the 2 last episodes keep a good quality.

Manji was pretty smart hiding a blade in the wall, good thinking from Rin who faked burying Manji so the kid wouldn't try to get revenge.

Lmao Whats with all the goofy-shaped knives in this show? Every knife is shaped like a fucking pretzel or a question mark or some dumb shit, like the novelty wall-hanger knives you get from suburban bong shops. Shit is hilarious.

Out of all the anime i've seen, nothing else piles up 3edgy5me-points as fast as BotI- which is quite an achievement, really.
