It certainly seemed to be possible, esp as the magician fellow standing next to the girl mentioned something about her name being cleared or some such.

Ok that was dumb... did that maid have a rocket in her butt in order to move around the village so fast?

Victorique sure is strong but what pissed me off the most is that there were 3 more people on her side and no one even THOUGHT about coming and helping her! I'll be quiet about actually HELPING! Just WTF?! Just how egoistic do you have to be?

Victoriqu/Kujo interections are good but I picked this series for its mystery atmosphere which is really low here -_-

And looks like Victoriques mother is alive and probably will bring not a very nice suprise in the future...

Spoiler for Ep. 8:


So, does anyone know if the next episode is from the second manga volume or the third novel? It looks like we're going to get three eps. per novel and two per manga vol., which would add up to the announced 24 if I'm counting correctly (6x3 and 3x2)?

Everything comes from the novels. The manga is just an adaptation just like the anime. The second anime story came from the GosickS side story novels, as will the other non-main novel episodes.

Breaking this episode up into 3rds, the final 1/3 of it was amazing. The scene with Victorique and Kujo was so emotional. Aoi, your acting pwns.

Harminia killed that dude when she was 6 years old?

A 6 year old in a maid outfit? What? Maybe it was just a mental reenactment by Victorica.


Her brother finds any excuse to hang out with her. Does he play dumb as an excuse just to see her?


A nice twist on the maiden in the tower.

Lol, yeah. There were some weird things about this episode, such as:
1) Finding out Harmania did it, so easily.
2) Harmania being convincted to execution for a crime she commited when she was a child.
3) Harmania setting fire to whole village so fast and so easily.
4) Kujo being unable to overpower a maid and Ambrose doing it so easily.
5) Ambrose not giving a long winded idealistic speech before punching Harmania in the face (Hurr)
6) No one thinking to help Victorique pull Kujo up.

Other than that it was an okay episode. What made it up was Victorique shouting at Kujo. Very emotional.

1. H attacked V in the study, and knew the details of the old king's death. Might start you thinking. V saw the doves and thought of misdirection, then just put two and two together: coins for doves, and small person to hide and stop clock (she herself hides in a similar way so it would be in her mind). Neither easy nor magical.

2. In that small monarchy, the king's word is law. He exiled Cordelia in a similar autocratic way. Seems unjust to us, but normal in a mediaeval autocracy.

3. This is something so many people are getting wrong, it seems to me: the speed with which the fires sprang up was not shown in real time, but was a narrative technique to show H moving across town to the gate without having to take time to show all her movements. Clearly, the technique didn't work, since so many people still think it was supposed to be real time. And it does seem she had a magical supply of gasoline to spread around, lol.

4. Decent point, but Ambrose may be bigger and stronger than Kujou. And he didn't so much overpower her as surprise her and wrest the spear from her, throwing her temporarily off balance.

5. ....

6. I agree with this point, but I know it was to leave them alone for the drama.

The only real problem for me was having a six-year-old murder the king. Other than that, it was one of my favorite episodes.

Yeah I figured it was her too. I'm meant getting the conclusive evidence was what seemed too easy.

Everything else, yeah i guess it makes sense. I just wished they didn't rush it and let more explanation be given to little things like this. Needless to say, the Light Novel probably gives it more depth but still...

Which begs the question of why she spoke at all, if she's the one who did it. If she'd just kept her mouth shut, Victorica would never have had the details necessary to deduce anything.

What I thought is that Herminia was the one who found the body, and that she had the same kind of deductive abilities as Victorica. That they were, in fact, the so-called "power" of her people. Thus she would know that Victorica was innocent, and that the Elder knew it, too. And had exiled her in spite of it, making him the prime suspect. That would explain her talking to Victorica. Her being the culprit all along? It doesn't. It doesn't explain why she'd resent Cordelia like the rest of the villagers, either, since she'd know with absolute certainty Cordelia was framed. By her.

It's an explanation I don't like to use because it does feel contrived but I think this is the only explanation they expect us to believe:

They could at least have made it some kind of split personality where she didn't know what she'd done.

It does imo.

It also develops the eerie, disjointed feeling of the village much more.
