Apparently it gets better from episode 5, or at least that's what the guys at NEET fansubs said.

It was an okay episode, but the mystery was way too easy to figure out. When i saw the guy i knew he'd be the culprit, even before the crime even happened. I hope the other episodes will feature better mysteries.

I laughed when Neuro threw her into the detective, but otherwise, another way too predictable episode. The only reason I'm still watching is for Koyasu's voice. I could watch anything as long as I could hear his voice ;x

Wow, a lot of negative comments but positive votes. Weird. This mystery...is already on the tip of my tongue. Not really. I guess people give high votes even to eps they are indifferent to?

The ep left me feeling a bit WTF too, especially the girl in the wall with the ponytail that types. What the hell is that? I wanted to see more of Godai-san. Right now, I'm more interested in him than in Neuro. As usual, Yako does nothing interesting. She couldn't even figure out that the poison was dripping from the ceiling.

The show isn't great, but it hasn't repelled me yet either and I'm pretty used to anime starting out really episodic like this and then gradually developing an actual plot. It reminds me of Tactics. (sorry to anyone I offend with that statement)

I'm confused on one point. So human beings "cross the line" and become demons sometimes? The bad guy in this ep got all crazy and warped--didn't the detectives find that a bit freaky? Or can only Neuro and Yako see the demonic stuff? Or is this a world where it's totally normal for people to turn into demons?

The mysteries are indeed all too predictable, but for some reason I'm really liking this anime. I guess it's because I like the characters and the series is just so wacky.
As for humans "crossing the line" and becoming demons, I'm as confused as you, Dorothea. Can someone explain this?

I don't think the detectives can see the "demon" aspects of these evil humans. I think it's something only Yako can see.

As for this ep, I thought Yako would have started to figure out something... but I've heard it's a good, so I'm going to keep on watching. It's not offensive or repulsive, just maybe not what it could be quite yet :)

I don't know, I just find this show very refreshing. It's a nice break from the usual stuff that we get.

I do want to know what was up with the hair on the wall though, that was just weird.

Weird and predictable episode it was, but I still enjoyed it. I guess Neuro's freakiness just shines too much that I overlook the lack of uhh... a decent plot / actual mystery in the show.

Instead of wondering who did it, I just wait to see how the culprit does it. It's better that way; I have no high expectations for a complicated mystery until a more complex plot starts to appear.

I found this episode slightly better than the second. Poison ropes that drip after lasers beam all over the stage? That's just plain crazy. Neuro is so lovable too.

After seeing this episode I decided to stop for some time... It happened to me first time. It's so predictable, schematic and boring... One story should be told in 3-4 episodes, so there could be more interesting action shown... And please show more than one suspected in each episode :D

I love Neuro's quirkiness. But wtf with the hair on the wall?! O.o
Also he was SHOT dammit.. didn't the detectives find weird that he recovered just like that?! And I guess that normal people can't see all that demon transformation thingy that's going on right?

Basically this so far seems like a comedy that's only thinly veiled as a mystery.

It's pretty funny though so I'm okay with that. Hope they get some better mysteries though.

Oh comments from the past, why you all sound old and not justifying the series right?

However I still love Neuro I pretty enjoyed the mystery of this episode. I don't think it's easy to figure out that was poison dripping from the ceiling at instant, it could have been water dripping from the air conditioning units from the ceiling or something like that. That's how I thought of it 1st, Neuro can see through things better than any human being can do. That's what I love most about him.

Yeah well he isn't a human and he solves mysteries, so obviously he can see things more clearly.
