It is only in the manga, but this element was to make up with the skipped airport scene.
I hope the anime watchers will take note of this element: it is very important to have an idea what Eva could do before being killed.

Yeah, they've forgotten to mention the fact that Eva is a martial arts master

Overall, this episode's better than the previous two in the pacing regard. Though, Maria's faces are more "insane" than "Creepy", and when Kumasawa laughs, her eyes don't move, just her mouth >_>

This was another well done episode, Maria's facial expressions are getting creepier each week.

The only odd thing I noticed was Shannon's tears were fresh when they showed her face but she was supposed to have died six hours prior.

Other than Maria's expressions being just a bit too crazy and the receipt scene leaving out a few (mostly minor) details from the VN, I think this episode turned out pretty well.

There might be some long-term consistency problems with the VN, but standing on its own, this episode was much better that the previous two.

Quite a fair review of the episode which I more or less agree with.

Actually a pretty good episode, much better than the last two. Cuts are minor and within reasonable limits. I actually quite enjoyed Maria's "crazy face"

The stake design...is that Natsumi Kei version?

Haha another one of those ON SNAP THEY DIDN'T PUT THIS IN thread. Anyway, I enjoyed the episode which was entertaining. I love Maria's face unlike some of you, cuz they always make me laugh. Also check out those breasts Hideyoshi have, lol.

Arah~, the pacing got better and the anime became a lot more interesting~
Then again, the anime has already gone passed the part where I stopped reading the manga, so anything from now on is completely new...

Maria... Very annoying brat and all, but her exaggerated facial distortions are so funny. Not scary. Wonder how bad her face will exaggerate by the time it ends.
She even became Mikami for a moment. SAKUJOU! SAKUJOU! SAKU-JOU!

Also had some fun with mishearings...
Did Natsuhi say "Wakarimasen" or "Wakarimasu?"? I heard "Wakarimasun"...
Jessica's "Kanan-kun"... --> "Conan-kun"... Hearing Conan in a mystery anime...

Hideyoshi-san... (´;ω;`) Poor guy... Not only that, but died by getting stabbed in the head by something... And to top it off, in the BATH! Writers, this is where you are supposed to put the female!
Eva? Ahh, that person. Hmm~ ( ´,_ゝ`)

Couldn't feel that sad about Shannon's death though... Because the whole thing around her and George didn't really have time to develop and went by in a digest version.

Eheheh, I'm apparently alone, but I liked most of Maria's expressions in this episode. I just thought they were cool looking. Also, I swear one of her expressions used this episode was one that was in the manga. So that was pretty cool.

Um, besides that, Battler had some great "I AM A BADASS" facial expressions this episode. *swooons~*

Also, while I like the tune Nighteyes, in the anime, I don't think it would of really fit in that scene. It's a bit overpowering in THAT particular spot. (I can see it being used well later though.)

Ahahaha, I noticed that she had the Death Note vibe going for a bit at that point too XD .

I'm usually not too picky but the faces... they just annoyed me... and there's times when Maria's face isn't just creepy - it looks abnormal...

other than that, I have no complaints whatsoever <3 Loved the episode overall
