THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

That's one beast I don't want to mess with.

The case felt kinda fast. That new girl isn't one to please with I guess, reminds me a little of Suzuka from Tokyo Ravens. She's got some nice skills with technology though.

Giving gun through email to the junior highschoolers... from that CM that got 1st?? And is fake (got edited to an handsome guy).

lol @ that old lady (who was a patient) helping out the guy with tiger face while getting caught by a group who gives the guns.

Not a bad ep. Moral is quite the complex character. Really finding him interesting.

Lol'd at the commercial at the start XD
"None have survived my operating table" XDXDXD

And Murasaki being called Megane XD The way he was so not into in was hilarious haha
His reaction after that was ROFL XD Face palming max XD

Loving Honey and Three. Honey is friggin HOT! Dat Body *A* and three is hilarious with the reading manga part even with the guy in the hotel room XD

Well as usual the case was nothing special but the characters make up a bit.

The last scene when Moral gave the kid the bloody jacket was O_O Twisted as hell

Wataru Hatano voice is really unique. I really like the ED.

So...headless play? psycho pass vibe. But I like the characters in this one.

LOL, Art's face when Nice's using his powers to catch the dog.

I like Art's bothered face also. cute. So he's afraid the 2 like poles meeting each other?

I've managed to catch the sniper just when he was about to assassinate my employer, now I will proceed to reveal my special abilities to him and affectionately rub my face against my pink flat-screen which also seems to be my signature move that I will repeat over and over.

I'm seriously at a loss of words right now, how do scriptwriters get away with this stuff?

Lol O love seeing YouTube in anime it looked just like it.

Anyways that same guy going around causing trouble again, using people then killing them like it's second nature. Nice sure is smart though, I see why he was number one at the academy.

That Honey is pretty delicious. Also stop raising your own deathflags Birthday.

I'm stumped on how Nice figured out what the kids have in common first when the police should have the resources to find that out too. I wish the show would stop making everybody incompetent in favor of showing how much of a genius Nice is.

You sound so surprised at a cliche that's been around for so long.

Anyways, this was a weak but fairly enjoyable episode. Hopefully the story picks up soon though. It's been a pretty slow start.

I really like the evil white-hair dude. He's insane, but he isn't committing crimes on a whim. You can tell he has a goal in mind.

Also, I completely forgot his name. I have a problem with remembering the names of fictional characters.

Well this episode was a bore. What was the point? To introduce the girl who can see 10 minutes into the future with some ipad? Sorry, I wasn't paying attention very much.

Buuuuull, I have to call bullcrap on Honey seeing ten minutes into the future with her Mighty. Unless she knew she was going to find his coordinates by doing some extensive digging around for him, there's no way she would've been able to know for sure they could find him in the exact place. It did look like she was searching for him, but she didn't look like she really was doing anything that suggested she really was. Same goes for what was going to happen in the area.

...my head hurts... trying to make sense of a show where people have powers...

Episode was all right, anyway. At least the old lady was cool, and there needs to be more Beast.

I didn't like this episode, was kind of weak and boring. I feel like I should be annoyed or bothered by what Moral is doing but I don't know...his character just feels so bland. The only saving grace of this episode was that awesome old lady.

Yep, still not shaking off the Psycho Pass vibe in my opinion, either. However, that doesn't mean Moral isn't interesting. He's really the only interesting person so far. Enough that I want to see where this all might lead.

Moral is actually a really great villain despite the shoddy narration of this series.

Can't wait to see his further serial esq orchestration of the events to come.

The opening is pretty catchy, I got to admit. It really grows on you.

The way this episode ended made me a bit uneasy... Not so different from each other, huh? Art's decision in not making Moral and Nice meet is a good one, I think.

Still can't shake the feeling that someone might get killed, especially with Birthday's comment about life being short. Hopefully they don't kill off Art. :/

I really want to see fights where they utilize their capabilities to the max. but I understand you have to build the plot first. I'm just wondering in which direction are we headed....cant wait to see what happens next!

Ok, Moral is 100% Makishima Shougo. That's not really bad, as Makishima is my favorite villain ever.


Too bad this show is only 12 episodes, I hope it gets second season at least, the setting, the characters and everything about it is really nice(no pun intended) and potentially good.

The humor was good this time as well.



Honey is so sexy!

Shougo > Moral^5

Episode went fast , looking forward to more.
"Children of Japan. And those who were once children. Listen! This is not a dream. This is not fiction. In reality, your superheroes were always fighting. To teach viewers courage and the meaning of justice! No matter how many enemies there are. No matter how strong evil is. Just remember. Does any another country have so many heroes? Has any another country been protected by multiple superheroes? Stand with me, friends! Remember when you used to watch your superheroes!
Once you may have given up this dream. But today, you can be a hero!"

Oh and I like honey.
