Once again they fail to develop the male characters fully.(Muto didn't get developed and a scene showing just how awesome H. mode with Kinji was) Otherwise it was a good episode.. just wish they would have shown a close up of Riko in parachute mode.

surprised this 'quality' anime got it's own section o_O

Do they have a different studio doing each episode or something? The character art is probably more inconsistent than naruto >.>"

The actual episode itself was not bad (but not exactly phenomenal, either). The one thing I found weird was the connection between Aria/Riko and Sherlock Holmes/Arsene Lupin, given that Holmes & Co. are fictional characters. Kind of weirded me out of my suspension of disbelief, which is definitely not a good thing.

like its been said, the episode felt rushed.
i would have to say i prefer the manga's/light novel's telling of the story.
but that's how it usually is :P

i missed hearing Kinji's thoughts all the time tho. lol

well JC staff rarely do monologue even though Kinji's inner thoughts are awesome lolz.

And they cut up the part where Kinji studied how to pilot a plane in minutes.

Are they going to explain Riko's hair?

It's just unreal.

Well they do explain it eventually in the LN, but whether or not they will in this adaptation is hard to say.

Judging from how many episodes far we're in right now and when the info on Riko's hair is divulged in the LN, if they do it probably won't be until one of the last episodes like 12 or 13. But this is mostly just a guess.

Spoiler for ep 5:

Premise: So so.
Execution: Terribly uninspired

Speed first, then Equilibrium. I'll keep watching if only to see which of our mediocre action movies they draw inspiration from next. Though I'll say Urobuchi's take on gun kata in Jouka No Monshou wasn't half bad.

An okay episode. Really not a fan of Aria though so the series will probably not be kept when I'm done watching it. Basically just here to see HM Kinji kick ass.

I had a feeling Dahak was going to mention this particular scene

Also did anyone else find Riko's "Bwaka" sounding pretty hot

I'm a bit surprised that this could bother someone. Both Holmes and Aria are fictional characters so what's the problem of two fictional characters being related? Don't think it's that hard to imagine that being a universe where Sherlock Holmes was a real person.

I mean we have a girl using her hair to wave around knives and use a control that's flying a plane .

Ehh, at best, this episode is a decent closure of the Butei Killer Arc. The battle between HM Kinji and Riko is awesome, and the landing scene is okay as well. However, I have to agree that there are very noticeable flaws, including WHERE THE HECK DID ARIA'S GUNSHOT WOUND GO? It suddenly disappeared, when it should not.

I still think that this series is gonna meet the same fate as Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi.

Not too dreadful, but...

WHAT IS THERE TO CENSOR-LIGHT, DAMMIT?

1) Aria-chan has her bra on.
2) She's so flat that no arousal whatsoever would be provoked anyways!!

It's not July yet, JC Staff!! Ishi-boy cant shove his coversatism up your prosterior yet, so why so bloody prude?
