An amusing animation error.
lol, I just noticed it as well.

You must have been really focused to notice such a small error.

Ah i didn't know that. Brilliant news actually, because there's a good amount of material from the second season that never made it to the soundtrack. Thanks for letting me know.

Straight from the booklet that came with my volume 4 DVD I received today.

Spoiler for Stripper Chan's name:


So there you have it.

Xiaojii, eh? Doesn't sound so bad, though I prefer Stripper-chan. Can you also translate what's written underneath the character? I'm kinda interested if there's more information about her.

Yeah, translate that, I think we all would appreciate it.

I kind of wish mags were scanlated. Well, only specific things since you can't do the entire thing, lol.

Well, since her renumeration is to grow younger, I figured that this is how she might have actually ended up instead of disappearing altogether....but eh.

....no, that's not her name. According to the kanji, and considering she's supposedly Chinese, that means it should really read as "Xiaojie". Which is the Chinese equivalent of "Woman" or "Lady", pretty much. Definitely not her real name there, just a generic moniker.

That's to be expected considering a lot of the contractors introduced in the series so far never go by their real name, but just mere codenames.

So I'll take it she's officially Xiaojie.

Yeah those two characters, in chinese at least, are "Xiao Jie". Like someone posted earlier, it means something along "lady". (xiao being the character for small, and jie being the character for sister).

Sorry to be a bother, but are the subs out for this yet? I've checked my usual streaming places and haven't seen any, but it's unusual for an un-subbed episode to get this many replies so....

1st Season of DTB was fine by me, had good scenes and had boring ones.
Season 2 was mostly a fail... at least the ending...
But this OVA series... they completely had changed my mind about the series 0_o
I love it! Hope they'll keep it up!

And WTF?! How the hell could you confuse a female talking dog with Mao?! Nothing similar at all! It's not like Mao was the only one who could poses animals' bodies...

<______< ' Listen! I don't know the voice was female okay! And i just think it's a coincidence that there's another contractor that can take animal form working for Madame Oreille. That's all!

Anyway, yeah I agree. I'm starting to think these OVA's are better than the first season aswell.

I wasn't actually referring to you but to everyone...

For real? 0_0
I thought it was obvious that was a woman. I can't imagine a guy with such voice, especially Mao!

Yeh, if the next 2 episodes will be at the same standard, I definitely will give series 10 out 10 over all.

Was he? I guess I confused some other forums as well. Since I saw several more people saying that.

The Mandarin pronunciation is xiao jie? Is the Japanese pronunciation of the hanzi/kanji characters also xiaojie/shyo-jie, or was that just Romanji?

The written characters themselves should have the same meaning regardless of the language that pronounces them.
