Ah well.
Just reached that part in the game, where she first says it in a foreign language before translating it for the rest. The whole gang except for Takahisa is there though.

Well, to be honest, as I haven't reached that fight in the game yet, I can't really make any comparisons, but seeing Random Curiosity's post on it was enough to tell that the fight is poorly done.

Of course, given the weird stuff going around there might be room for various questions, but the present Kukuri isn't what the past one should be at this time, if she had lived.

Edit: bleh, beaten to it.
Well I guess you make perfect sense.

But when she "died" wasn't she about the same age as the "new" Kukuri is?
What if Kukuri got revived somehow and just took the form that she had when she died. Or maybe she didn't really die and was just trapped in that other world where she didn't aged or something.


Well but I guess you guys already played the game so I'll just trust you both

The official website appears to be subtly hinting (definition of "subtly" may vary) that something will happen a week from today. Since a week from today is 11/11.

After marathoning the last few eps, I have realized something.

This is basically a thinly veiled Fate/Stay Night ripoff.

Except not nearly as good.

In what way is it similar to F/SN? I'd liken it more to Silent Hill instead, like I said all the way in the beginning.

1. There's no Master-Servant war.
2. Instead of a 7-way battle royale, it's more like a team vs team.

What is with people saying Misuzu is a Shana lookalike/ripoff? She's female, has red hair and wields swords. She has red hair, but not the same red as Shana. That's where the similarities end. Her eyes do not take up half her face, nor is she loli or have a signature catchphrase.

People have been comparing them? When I first saw Misuzu, Shana isn't who came to mind at all. O.o

The post above me is an example on this forum, I've also seen people call Misuzu a Shana lookalike in two other forums. I'm perplexed really

The similarities end at: Sword, Red hair.

And even then those two are applied differently. Shana has black hair in her camoflage form, and Misuzu has FIVE swords to Shana's one, out of which ONE is fire-related.

I guess some people just cast around looking for a character to compare Misuzu to.

Haha, yeah, don't see those comparisons at all. If I had to compare, she reminds me of Mitsuru from Persona 3. But again, similarities are mostly appearance and sword. Personality is kinda-sorta...

Having no knowledge of the source material, this show is pretty cool to me. Interesting, people making the Mizusu/Shana comparison, because when she pulled out all her swords in a previous episode, I was thinking, first we have Saya's Blood+ sword, and then Shana's Fire sword, do her other 3 resemble swords from other sources? on to episode 5, interesting to see kakuru's power, and the backstory of the nurse

Yeah it does, but this one sees into the past as well. Good for knowing backstories.

Catched up the last episodes and... it isn't exactly all pretty if you ask me.

From a neutral perspective, the series is going dangerously to the very basic cliches (not like the original story was void of it, but it certainly didn't need any more of it), especially regarding the whole black knights, more like grunts than anything.
I knew something was terribly wrong considering how Gula was killed that early and in that fashion, but Episode 5 was kinda the straw of inconsistent storytelling.

Now, from a VN reader point of view, it is really really not encouraging.
Spoiler for little rant with few game knowledge, but no future events:

I really wonder where they are going to, so I wouldn't be surprised if the story will diverge even more from this point.
Honestly, they are dumbing down the plot a lot, which isn't exactly a luxury for 11eyes.
