Episode 10 has been fansubbed. Suffice to stay, sticking with this series the whole way is starting to pay off.

I've just caught up to the fansubs today and am seeking out eps 11 and 12 as I type. I wouldn't say Skull Man is amazing, but it's really impressed me from a somewhat underwhelming beginning - it's very tightly written, Izubuchi has unsurprisingly done a really great job bringing it all together aside from some slightly hasty bits of writing (Nami-nee's storyline seemed a little rushed, for instance). Hopefully everything will get resolved nicely for the end (is this definitely 13 eps?).

Ep12 was pretty solid. Just one more episode to go. Pretty much all mysteries are resolved and everything has culmilated to the final showdown. Definitely tons of RahXephon and Patlabor-ish vibes in many scenes throughout the final few episodes. Izubuchi rocks.

Great ending. Ambigious and bittersweet, and very faithful to Ishinomori's style. Great action too.

I'm not gonna lie it took effort getting through a few of these episodes as bordem sometimes sets in, but eps 9 and 10 finally started to bare some fruits...With 3 episodes left for me I think I finally see a light at the end of the tunnel...This show has alot of OOC moments and WTFness aswell (particularly involving SKULLMAN), but good animated action can make other problems kinda dissapear...Hope to God the main character isn't as useless in these final eps as he's seemed to be all series...I mean even his girly assistant seems to be a black-belt in Karate...

Spoiler for Skullman's identity:

For me, Skull Man was *the* positive surprise of the spring season and it got better and better. Discovering hidden gems like these make it worth to download a dozen first episodes of anime I'm expecting to suck just to find out that they indeed do suck. I was also expecting "shounen cheese" as Monir has called it back on page 1 (a term that is not a compliment when it comes from me), and even worse, shounen cheese that has outlived it's eat-by date by at least 2 decades. I was so wrong.

I just caught up too.

Spoiler for up to ep. 12:


Can't wait for episode 13!

-----

I was expecting a great series considering the production values for ep. 0 and ep.1 overall. I felt that it delivered 100%. It's not a "hidden jewel" at all imo. It just didn't receive the fansub circuit buzz that only a few other titles have gotten imo. There are loads of good to great titles not receiving fansub circuit buzz out there.

WTF indeed...

Overall, I'm quite pleased with this series. It started slow, but didn't fail to deliver in the end. I want a sequel !

Wow. Just wow. Still, there was no happy ending for Hayato. And the whole situation at the end was suitably fucked up. This series delivered, and was definitely one of the better series last season.
