I was afraid at first the way the ep. started that this was going to be another filler (two in a row!) but then things started to happen outside of Daitetsu's mind as well as in. I could have done without the recap of Jin's stupid hysteria but I feel things are back on track again with Daitetsu discovering something odd is going on, and Nagi's amnesia, finally some plot movement! Shame we didn't see Zange, maybe Daitetsu could have a daydream about her next? That would be 110% win!

Nagi seems a bit like Pai in 3x3 Eyes, with the cute human persona often being unaware of what the immortal god persona has been up to. I wonder if only part of Nagi manifested in the statue and the rest of her spirit is still in the earth of the shrine or the part of the tree that was left (was the rest of it burnt I wonder?).

I'm actually surprised that Yamamoto is that bitter (assuming he did say that). I mean, his dismissal was probably unfair, but I would have expected a slightly more professional attitude towards it, and bit more of a "forgive and forget" philosophy. Even if he has his grievances with KyoAni, I'd hardly think that the public media is the best place to air them. Nonetheless, I've no doubt as to which out of Lucky Star and this is the superior anime. I think that Lucky Star kinda had the pressure from the beginning of being a KyoAni series, so it was expected to be popular, which IMO came at a detriment to its production. This series probably never had the expectation, so it being popular is something of a bonus.

An amusing ep, not quite as many LOLs as the last two. They really took the roundabout route towards making a joke about Jin x Daitetsu. They were hinting at it all episode, but it took Takako towards the end of the ep to actually make a crack about it. Daitetsu's imagination rivals that of Sakura Misaki.

Quite an imagination he's got.

Also, forbidden love against forbidden love. Unless she pulls an "I am your mother" moment, does Tsugumi have a chance?

I though the delusions were pretty stock, except Daitetsu is HUGE and pretty scary. It's just weird to see someone so menacing think like that and act upon it. When girls in the school were avoiding him, and him looking super-menacing in the roof of his own house... Wow. That actually WAS SCARY. And hilarious.

And funny how he's probably the closest person to unlocking the whole mystery and even ahead of Jin in some ways.

Excellent episode. Daitetsu's delusions were absolutely priceless!!! And the family comedy act....
I also loved scary Nagi, and lol at Tsugumi's speculations...

But why goats???

I've been watching the Ayako subs so far because they are early and in AVI. I haven't had any problems up untill ep. 8, where I thought some sentence could have been rephrased or had some extra fot notes added to them. Here are the examples from the episode that made me go wo0t?! Probably it's just me and my nescience but what are your guys opinions? Any other fansub group that could be worth checking out also?

Spoiler for ep 8 @ 03:50:

i heard EnA is also worth checking, not sure about SHiN-gx & Genjo but from what i've heard they are doing a good job as well so you might want to check the two other groups out. I plan on getting ENA releases once the anime finishes, for now i'm following who's the fastest.

EnA has done excellent translation/edit/qc work in the past. yeah, I'm catching their stuff and storing it for comparision later. However, Ayako has done pretty consistent work over the years and some of my favorite series were covered by them.

There probably isn't a single series where some line of dialog subtitling didn't make me wince at some point. If it was softsubbed, I could fix it but the hardcoded ones just had to stay.

Yea that was a pretty good episode. The imagination that Daitetsu has is so entertaining. And thanks to him we got some rather scandalous echii imagery of Nagi. Now we just need some Zange and Tsugumi. At risk of making it another harem anime, I would like to see Tsugumi try a little harder.

Earlier someone quoted this,

The mangaka is the blue person with the bubble-thing coming out of its mouth, right above the fairy. Dunno where the Konata cameo was.
Below you see the picture. I have enhanced the image to showcase the characters in question. Mangaka apparently is the blue guy. Who is the green haired girl below that running out of the bathroom?

From what I hear, she's the titular character from Kaiketsu Yousei Punyata(Extraordinary Fairy Punyata), which shares the same mangaka as Kannagi.

Thanks Daitetsu, and the creator of Kannagi, for making me feel like a dirty old man.

so what happens if the wood from the deity tree was purified by burning?
Would the spirit find itself in a new tree planted to serve as the guardian tree of the land?

Nagi seemed to much prefer that she ended up being burned as planned.
