You guys are making me nervous about episode 10. It's getting really hard not to look at spoilers or download the RAW (even though that is pointless because I won't understand a thing that is going on).

Due precisely to Kaisos and Kazu-kun's conversation, my anticipation went through the roof, and I went and watched this raw.

I can see why Kaisos really liked this, but I can also see why Kazu-kun didn't.

Characters did look a bit off-model to me. It's hard to put my finger on exactly what it is (faces too narrow, perhaps?), but I do see the quality issues that a couple others are referring to. It didn't bother me that much, but it is there, imo.

I'm not going to talk about non-visual aspects of Episode 10 (characterization, plot, etc...) until I watch this with subs, but I wanted to give my take on the visual aspect.

WTF... knew Masako used to be Kanba's GF (she targeted all the girls around him), but still have no clue why Masako wants the diary. Then again, we don't know why Himari wants the diary either. Argh, me wanting to know is driving me crazy! How is a diary going to help either Himari or Mario with their survival strategy?

Speaking of who... Masako calls him "Mario-san". Is it just me, or is that weird for siblings? I mean, Takakura siblings don't have such honorifics, and Mario looking to be younger than Masako.... yeah weird indeed.

All that said, it's very 'daww inducing for me seeing Ringo go all emotional about Sho and his well being. Would've rather have her go even more insane, but you can't always get what you want lol. XD

The animation was indeed pretty bad this week, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the episode. As I suspected, Masako is one of Kanba's exes. Ringo's getting some competition in the crazy stalker category.

Ringo's taken a step in the right direction by giving up her diary to save someone else's life. I expect her storyline to be resolved very soon, perhaps even in the next episode.

#1 was hilarious as always. Definitely the best penguin.

Other than the fact Kanba looked very off a lot of the episode, and the occasional QUALITY, I thought this was a good episode. When I heard SURVIVAL STRATEGY for some reason it didn't cross my mind it was gonna be Mario, and I was really hoping for a Princess Crystal and Masako confrontation.

The quality diving is not such a big problem, except that this episode coming back from ep 9 where animation almost reached the perfection in quality. At some point, i started to wonder whether this episode is fan made rather than actual ep 10,but then there's VA to confirm. The off in character design, the lack in animation (especially the Kanba going down stair sequence), and lack of quality overall is a little bit alarming. Understandable, but they can't get to legendary status having this low quality (finger crossed for fixing during DVD/Bluray release).

Other than that, i have no complaint over character development.
  • Ringo shows her unexpectedly weak character but it's understandable, considering a guy nearly lost his life to save her.
  • Did Himari x Kanba's flag a fake one. Coming quite unexpected
  • Natsume having crushed over Kanba? Expected. I don't think it's just that simple through
  • The one who picked up the diary looks really like Yuri. Is it possible that Yuri, Tabuki, Masako are working together, for Mario. In other side, we have Ringo, Kanba, Sho for Himari
  • Horie Yui singing the ED. That's totally unexpected. She plays Masako? Even more unexpected

Overall, the episode is a bit disappointing after coming down from such high note last episode

PS: understand Nina.Wolken's frustration on how everything seems to be so straightforward and simple this episode. But unless this anime is 1-cour, otherwise we still have so many episodes left for everything to end this simple. Maybe an effort to play down audience's expectation before throwing something big? (hopefully)

Shoma hit by a car.. Kan & Himari visited him in the hospital.
He's lucky he got off that easy, but I guess saving Ringo had a price.
Shoma got kidnapped all 'cause of the diary or what's left of it.
Penguin fishing for girl's underwear?! That part was totally LOL! Guess sometimes the best parts are going on in the background ^^
The ending sure was unexpected! ROFL

I haven't seen the episode yet, but the animation appears to have been a solo effort by Keiji Gotoh (Kiddy Grade, Uta Kata), who also handled the storyboard and episode direction.

From a quick glance, the style seems quite different from previous episodes. Nevertheless, there're many stills and awkward drawings, which might suggest limited time/resources.

I'm surprised because those off-model frames really don't look like Gotoh's usual style. I hope there's a chance they'll redraw them for the Blu-ray.
