Poor Rui gets a real pain in the neck for being a nice guy . Clearly from that flashback Midori didn't have someon understanding around her. Parents were pretty disturbed by their daughter knowing everything they were thinking. Mind reading seemed to come on a lot stronger and earlier than for Ran. Though doesn't give clearance to go hurt innocent people for your whims.

Was a bit surprised by some reason with Rui's voice, but will probably be fine with it after a few episodes. Guy did a good job putting a stop to the telepathy fight before things really got out of hand.

Thought the first episode was alright and will see how things go.

I just watched the first episode ~ ! And from what I see, I like. The animation style is colorful and fluid, the character designs are simple and fun, and the story is familiar without being too cliche. I can't wait to see more!

I watched the first episode a couple of days ago. Although, like many others, I don't like the character design and the OP and the ED, I enjoyed this episode, in particular the class part at the end. It was a little too much slow at the beginning.

Second ep is out in raw, and things are building up. I'm looking forward to this show now. At first, the style kind of put me off, but the acting, plot, and characterization make up for it.

And I differ completely from those who don't like the OP and ED. I think they are both outstanding. Maybe it's just my folky taste. I like that odd drawl.

Yeah, IMO the OP is the only redeeming thing about this show. (both the video and the song, though I've always been a Chara fan, it's not her best work). The OP illustrations are outstanding.

She may just fall into my usual category of characters I really didn't like early on and then they turned into one of my favourites. If a show is trying to make me not like a person all that much I'll just go with the flow .

Don't hate on Midori-- she's just trying to warn Ran, and she's acting out on her own past, as others have said.

And there are better ways to do it than attacking Rui for being a nice guy, calling her a monster, taunt her, etc, yes?

And... that means she's right/people shouldn't hate her, how? Lots of evil, evil villains in games, manga, etc. act on their past too, so we shouldn't get mad at them for what they do?

Bah, the art style is rather bland IMO especially compared to the manga. But at least they are proceeding with the plot at a fast pace.

Manga sample:
The teacher looks like she got a few extra pounds on her in the anime.


And for ppl who want to know who the mask is:

Episode 2...

I'm starting to like the OP and ED more, at first I was apprehensive. I find myself rewatching these few episodes, which I usually never do! I like this series for the most part so far, except for a few iffy animation scenes (the one with Fumi), but the bright colors and fun athsetic keep me interested ~ !

Looking at the manga scan, to me who has read a lot of shoujo scans, its as generic as the anime albeit in another way. Oh well, I never really was that big on art anyways, so a moot point for me.

As for episode 2, yes... more psycho-bitch conflicts. (What are the odds of Ueda voicing a character in Higurashi 3? I want her there lol) I really REALLY hope they won't make up and be friends, but looking at OP, I find it very unlikely.


Thanks again to w00f for the translations. Great series so far, and one of the few shows I can actaully watch in 1080p. XD

So Rui did stop it? I assumed he had something to do with it, given his seemingly unquestioning support of Ran, but there wasn't any on-screen evidence, was there?

I'm liking the animation style of this, simple without looking scruffy. The story has potential to be entertaining, though I hope the angst won't get too out of hand.

I thought the bit in the building with the dog and the lighter was a terribly clumsy way to attack someone, until I considered the building/contents, and not the employee, was probably the target. Even so, a bit odd, I thought.
