The second one got me too .


About the ep in itself well, I'm not sure we are much more advanced about the pot with this episode, I felt the time pass slowly (again , felt like 1hour while shinsekai did the opposite).
I wonder how many Tvtropes/Cooltropes we could count in these 2 episodes .

I'm getting some half Guilty Crown vibe, this is not a good sign .


If it's the same next week I will drop this, I already have many thing to watch this season.

The part where he ran into a wall was also pretty funny, especially with the dramatic music. XD

Quite a lot, I thin. XD This episode we even had a completely random maid!

Going by the preview the next episode seems to be more action-oriented... at least both the girly-named Skateboard Guy (seriously, Misaki?? ) and Septer 4's third-in-command seem to be getting some action.

It's Togainu no chi, right? I don't think it's a reference, at least it's a pretty common pose...

after 2 episodes i have no freaking idea what im watching, the atmosphere of the show and character personalities seem to fluctuate by the second, the show is somewhat enjoyable mostly thanks to the visuals, but plot-wise everything seems like a blend of any genre you can find in anime nowadays without any focus.

For some reason the Cat girl reminded me of Shiro from Deadman Wonderland. A powerful, mysterious character that drifts about and is in close proximity to the main character. Visually interesting show.

You also forgot the cat voiced by Norio Wakamoto in Azumanga Daioh.

Still no idea where this show is headed, but the second episode was pretty fun to watch.

likewise. Its the highlight of the episode. I was just grinning until he closed his eyes, and I ended up laughing hysterically.

Yeah yet another one. It's why I continue to laugh every time i hear people claim how misogynistic anime is towards female characters. Yeah usually theres also still a male lead that gets most of the focus in action shows usually but yeah...evidence speaks for itself lately.

Speaking of which, who the heck tagged this thread with "shoujo", "yaoi", and "shounen-ai"? It's very ill-informed and misleading.

Second episode left nowhere near of an impact as the first one did. However, it was still pretty interesting. Guess we can't go two episodes without a naked cat girl appearing, but I guess they did warn us in the preview.

I'd like to have the GIF of Kurou's painted eyes as an avatar.
Seriousness destroyed by graffiti.

Goddamn, Shiro is definitely more cunning than he looks, being able to fool Kuro with the tale of his poor, sick sister and then managing to escape graciously with those light bombs and the bear costume. 10/10, Shiro.

Also, small clash between Kuro and Yata featuring one of those Angela insert songs. And the highlight of the episode was of course, Neko, who has some nifty abilities so that's a nice bonus in addition to her looks and easygoing personality.

Finally the ED, which is all about Neko so...yeah. It's good.

I really don't get the comparisons to that pile of poop called Guilty Crown. It took itself seriously, when it was anything but.

K, so far, has been pretty good, because it hasn't buried itself under pretending to be a pretentiously serious show. So far, at least. Just a beautiful (if oversaturated), irreverent, borderline surreal, stylish bit of fun. Of course, a lot can change over the course of a season, but so far, I think things look good.

Blame all the people who freaked out over Shiro blushing in ep 1, declared the show BL and left in a huff, feeling betrayed. (Seriously, read back in the thread, it's ridiculous.)

I wonder where they are now and how stupid they feel with all the Neko fanservice in this episode...

The way he bullshitted his way out of danger was hilarious. Poor Kurou, he's too naive for this job. (And he even tried to be intimidating with dangling Shiro in the air like that.)

Yeah, from the first ep it seemed it would be all about posturing, but it showed in this ep that it's not afraid of making fun of itself, which is always a good thing.

This episode was pretty funny, which isn't what I expected from this series at all. It was basically a cat and mouse episode. Not much happened other than that.

I don't know what to think anymore. As long as it remains enjoyable to watch, I suppose it's ok.

Best OST of this season.


Kurou can safely change his name to Honda Futayo now. They're like clones or something...
