All this Tanya hate, don't tell me she killed her boyfriend?

As for Suou and July, I expected them to join Hei sooner or later but Hei killing Yin? There's a line you just can't cross, Hei. :/

But doesn't that give up all the motivation to watch the show even further?

PS - I'm not sure if Tanya's legal...

OH COME ON! I can expect something other than 99% action from this show right!?

Oh wait. It's by BONEs. the masters of more action less plot. Nevermind.

I'll still watch it though.

The reason being is because it's only 12 ep, so they're making it fast pace. We'll still get plot and answers, but I don't see the main plot until middle and/or at the end.

Another great solid episode. More plot driven and more players coming into scenes. Apparently Hei is no working for CIA but rather for that woman, I wonder if that Madam Oreille the CIA agent met up with. Now that Hei lost his powers, I'm looking forward to how he's going to handle situations without his powers. I'm going to miss that mask and daggers though.

Suou becomes some sort of pseudo Contractor. Apparently she seemsedto return to normal once she used up her power. I wonder if we will get to know about the logic thinking transformation from a normal human to a contractor....

Mao is alive. While I'm glad but it didn't make much sense. Wasn't Mao's backup personality or something kept by the Syndicate and they shut it down when Hei's group revolted? Even if they didn't keep it how did Mao transfer into another body when he's gone from the black cat body in Season 1?

Hmm, July joined the group. Weird. Probably he wants to avenge April's death. I wonder why Hei picked him up as well

Damn you Tanya...poor Nika. His death really surprised me...kinda sad really.

I can only at the preview though. The character looks...interesting

I don't rate many episodes, but that one was a ten. I was completely rapt from beginning (the great OP song by Stereopony) to end.

Every character was great, from Hei (suffering from depression, lost some of his power, but still highly effective -- and not at all attempting to rape Suou, serenade, come on); to Suou (that's Hanazawa Kana? you're kidding me!); to Tanya (love the insect swarm and the sudden descent/rise to being a full emotionless contractor); to the hard commissar; to innocent (and now dead?) Nico; to tired and bothered Mizuki Nana, now in for even more than she bargained for; to everyone else.

Too much action for the plot? I thought it was a perfect balance, with both running full-bore.

I even, God help me, loved the explosions. If I have to cavil a bit, it would be for Suou being too close to the explosions without seeming to feel danger, and similarly when she and Hei were too visible in the woods near the cottage.

Oh, and there was a nice amount and degree of fanservice -- all-gender, all-age, lol.

I thought immediately of Phantom when Suou and Hei plunged into the water together. How many minutes to hypothermia in icy water? I guess that doesn't apply to contractors.

And I might find it a bit much that Hei keeps looking for the meteorite shard when it is staring him in the face as Suou's pendant.

Character/seiyuu pics page added to my sig below. I'll try to catch up with the growing number of characters. That list of five shows in green down there pretty well represents my favorites of the season.

EDIT: I should have realized who the squirrel was back in ep1, by the bandana. Makes leaping on her chest a bit more significant.

So relieved to see he just wanted tie her hand. I'm also ashamed to recognize that my mind is in the gutter..
I couldn't stop laughing after reading that line.

Gotta watch the episode before the subs now to see the restraining.

Edit: Whoa! Suou's gonna hafta marry Hei after this episode

This episode will spawn countless doujins about Hei and Suou. And it will involve penetration.

Great episode... and the obligatory Yin sighting. Just spill the beans, BONES. The suspense is killing me.

No suspense here. I'm still laughing at the Suou scene.

Poor girl. Nothing's left to his imagination now. Next time she carries him, she should strip him.

Agreed. She can't become oyome-san after this. Hei will have to sekinin totte.

Are we still talking DtB and not just a typical harem series?
