i can not understand why this anime have not high regard on this site i mean he clearly doesn't deserve 7 !!


I'm surprised its almost 8 cause barely nothing much happened plot wise until like around episode 8.

Plus I can't really connect with the characters like I did with Free!, Kokoro Connect, and Chuuinbyou.

Well that was a clusterfuck of incidental on the spot exposition and stuff happening.

A 4 or soft 5 seems much fairer in my book.

I'm guessing the 13th episode will be an OVA?


Thirteenth up is supposedly a Christmas special that will air after 12. I have a feeling its unrelated to the mess happening now so looks like is has 20 minutes to wrap up next week

So my guess was spot on mostly from last week's build up.

That being said, the pacing in this episode was pretty fast. Especially that ending fused with the Opening Song, so many things happened, I had to rewind a bit on what was going on.

Kuriyama sent him, one very long phone message, probably maximized all the characters. That was one helluva random way to send messages via flying printed paper to meet at the literary club, his mother's logic is beyond the boundary.

And of course, holy hell he charged the relic with a car battery plugged into it while having a soliloquy explaining the plot points.

The mother and son rough relationship was really new and funny.

On a serious note, I do want to know how did his mom get the Youmu stone which Kuriyama grabbed after the whole Hollow Shadow aftermath and thought it was worthless piece of rock. The mother's appearance was really a plot convenience but I believe there might be a deeper explanation for her "all-knowing" attitude.

I understand the "catch 22" Izumi was in, but did she have to be such a cold-hearted bitch about it? I mean, seriously?!
Akihito's mother... *smh*

The next episode is the last one? I thought there were 13 episodes.

Lol not to be a buzzkill but I'm still cringing from how cheesy this episode was: "I don't feel unpleasant..." "Make sure to get ready to kick her back to the moon," *makes a break to save Kuriyama*

Not the only one, I was thinking of how cheesy her text was too. I think if it was a little shorter it might've been more effective for me. But still cute I guess because Mirai's changed so much since the beginning.

That ending though had me go wtf is happening. The action looks pretty cool as always but for some reason I didn't really understand it.

I very much wish they hadn't wasted time on petty episodes like the one where they sing to catch that youmu. 20 minutes doesn't feel like nearly enough to finish this anime. This episode was really fast paced but so amazing that I just loved it.

Really love this show, but I hope they explain and wrap-up everything well. Unless they have a second season, which would be great.

Only 2 more episodes to go! I think Kyoukai no Kanata is up there for surprise of the fall season. By the way, anyone else thinks that the ED in this is flawless? That song is just so awesome! Can't wait for next week!

His mom was quite amusing too. Though I do wish they got a bit into his history/backstory or something.

Felt rushed. This show doesn't really create an atmosphere for me because it's squeezing too much stuff in one episode.

Every episode thus far is so <3

Akki's mother got introduced, which is nice and I like the way she acts, even for her age :)

The ending was so amazing, Akihito saving Mirai, aiding her against Beyond the Boundary <3

Akihito's mother showing up and knowing what to do was surprising at first but I think I understand now. Remember when Izumi showed up and Akkey's mother recognized her and even said her name? The two seem to know each other somehow and I'm sure their relationship will be explained either next episode or the last episode (episode 13). Remember My guess is Akkey's mother somehow got that information from Izumi, but she was unwilling to tell our half youmu pervert. That's just a theory, but it seems very likely.

Yeah, it's looking like last week is going to hold up as the episode that had the least overall problems of any episode in this show. We're back to 2/5 territory here again sadly after a more decent effort last time. I find it funny that this episode got the title Black World when it was last episode that felt more melancholic.

My theory is that Izumi went seeking advice with Aki's mom after her original plan failed, and it was Aki's mom that came up with the "Mirai sacrifices" plan.

That's another theory I hadn't thought of. Man I really can't wait to find out how Aki's mom knows so much.

Story so far. Hope I got this all right.

Nase Izumi contacts Kuriyama Mirai offering her a task of vanquishing great calamity bringer Beyond the Boundary. Mirai transfer to same class as Akihito (BtB host) and starts killing him.

Due to being fused with Beyond the Boundary Akihito is immortal and as such Mirai attacks are harmless. First tactics failed.

Second opportunity came when Hollow Shadow came to the city. Mirai wanted to beat him as a revenge for childhood friend death but failed. Akihito the immortal helped her by becoming host to the Hollow Shadow. They won and Akihito gone wild.
He was later subdued with the help of Nase family and his teacher. Mirai once again failed to kill Beyond the Boundary weakened by Hollow Shadow. She got too attached to Akihito.

Then the Calm came. Izumi made sure that Akihito would manifest into Beyond the Boundary. Izumi told Mirai that She can use her cursed blood and draw BtB from Akihito and thus save him.
Mirai did just that. What Izumi didn't predict was that Beyond the Boundary would fuse with Mirai (or her blood) and seal both of them in pocket dimension. Mirai was able to battle BtB for 3 month without taking a break.

How was Mirai able to fight for so long? Cursed blood, sad memories, BtB taking all super natural power from humans or maybe Mirai wish for Akihito to have normal life. Since they are one then they are immortal and can battle for all eternity.

With tiny shard snapped from Beyond the Boundary Akihito goes to save Mirai and after few more action packed scenes they finally reunite.

Then the freaking episode ends :(

Series really bumped up its storytelling but I feel the pacing is way too fast now. Packed too much explanation into one episode. The scene with Akihito running to Mirai was good with the OP song which I love. I know your mom is annoying but you don't need to knock her around, I know it was supposed to be funny but it really bothered me for some reason.

It's a spirit world, so it is not like Mirai needs food or sleep there. Mirai could fight so long because she knew that defeating the BtB would save Akihito in the real world. The doll of Akihito she created was to ground her during the fight and remind her of why she was fighting. So basically love was where she got the strength. BtB wouldn't have been able to last forever, it was actually losing and was draining Youmu and Spirit Warriors in the real world in a desperate attempt to save itself, but had not the Magical Association Person interfered, Mirai would have defeated it and both she and the BtB would disappear together.

The two big remaining questions are, what role Akihito's mother plays in all this. We will not get the answer to that (most likely) since the novels are still be published (or at least are much longer than this series and I figure that is a huge plot point), that is annoying but nothing we can do about that (assuming that this arc isn't completely different from the novels), the bigger question I have is why the Magical Association guy is doing all this. I hate shows and books where the evil guy just does evil things because he is evil. I really hope and expect a better explanation for his motives (unless they already did it and I just missed it). Knowledge and power are lame reasons. I also have to question the logic behind a car battery being able to power up BtB that much. I know, artistic license, but still pretty stupid license (youmu are supposed to be weak because of light (which electricity provides), and a car battery why not a friggin 9 volt battery if you are going to do that.

That last one is a very very very minor complaint, just something that bugged me.

Is it just me or have a lot of people given up on this show way too early?

I remember when this series was within it's first 6 or 7 episodes and people were calling it a massive disappointment from Kyoto Ani. However, it seems like they really didn't give this series a chance to come to fruition. The last 3 or 4 episodes have been simply outstanding. I'd even put this up there with Hyouka in regards to how great its been.
