Hence they are trying to cut down on the violence by drawing in absolutely brilliant pastel art. Contrary to what others may think, this was an excellent decision, since it allows us to look at things from a child's point of view without decreasing the drama. The art is already better than so many other shows that are airing (understandable, since it's IG and all...), and I personally can't see anything worth complaining about.
Speaking as someone who writes for that age group, I think the show is being done very well so far. Trust me, from a kid's perspective, the ending of Episode 6 is far more terrifying than a whole herd of rampaging toudas.

I'm guessing that Erin is going to grow up some during the course of the story. Does anyone know how much?

If I recall correctly, the story covers 14 years. I am sure she'll turn out to be a good person

EDIT: I was wrong. This is the original statement:

しかも、主人公は10歳から14歳、そして大人へと成長していきます。(Source)

That's still a long time, and it gives a lot of room for Erin to develop. She may even transcend Chagum's character development in Moribito.

PS I haven't seen past ep 3 yet so please, no spoilers outside spoiler tags!

Wasn't SnM supposed to be children/YA literature also?

Just watched ep 6. The bad thing is that I skipped ep 3 to 5 and it didn't feel like I missed anything. The good thing is that the ending makes me hope things are finally going to change/gear up.

From the Spoiler FAQ:
"Because our forum is targeted primarily at fansub viewers, it is inconsiderate to openly discuss or post impressions of an episode before the fansubs are released, except in threads discussing that specific episode. So, when multiple raw and fansubbed episodes are being discussed in the same thread, please keep all discussion of unsubbed episodes behind clearly-marked spoiler tags. Discussing unsubbed anime is not a spoiler according to this policy, but please be considerate."

The main site lists fansubs up to episode 6, so there's nothing wrong with untagged discussion up 'til that point. I suggest that you either catch up quickly, or avoid this thread until you've caught up. As always, it's a good idea to be cautious when venturing into any thread where the discussion can be ahead of what you've seen.

Haha, was just joking about that, I know what to expect from forums like these. And besides, it's not like Erin has that much to spoil at this point.

For those who'd like to look at some screenshots and a summary of ep 7...

And now, the ep itself. As expected, I'd say. -wry-

That's just my opinion, based on the way stories are usually told. I don't have any actual evidence.

Hrm. That's true. And in terms of storytelling, I do think KnSErin is doing pretty well.

eh? what is up with peopl ehere? so far i have enjoyed every single episode and i dont consider even one of them skippable, theres relevant information in each one, i honestly think that anyone who needs a guide about which episodes to skip should not bother with this series.
i for once enjoy the pace, i am completely sick of series that dont take the time to develop anything before the big action sets in and this is a welcome change.

Hey, this is a 50 episode anime, shame on them if they dare to not develop the characters and story properly! Hopefully they take Blood+ as a bad example!
And all I had to complain was that I thought it would be tailored to young children with the fault on my side since I am quite old.

It does target young children... it's just that Japanese children are used to this (and yeah, I did watch episode 7).

Rather than sadness, episode 7 made me feel anger.

Like, the type of anger that just leaves you there motionless, with your jaw clenched.

I want to see that empire destroyed. I want it gone.

Not even Juuni Kokki made me feel like this.

I hope that they let loose their story writers in the same way they did in episode 7.

I am really looking forward to all that.

Episode 7 has completely rekindled my interest in the series.

Self-sacrifice, a thickening plot that could credibly go in a lot of directions, motivated characters..

But that useless comic duo.. Doshte.. They just got in the way of the drama, completely superfluous. Luckily they've toned down the slapstick that we saw in the first few eps (the boing sounds when people fall over, etc) but the show could have been much more mature and involved if they had left them out completely.

Am seeing lots of SnM in this, with the court intrigue and good drama. Also love the songs, background art, character design and OP/ED. High hopes for the rest!
