I'm afraid this has almost reached the mangas level in stupidity.

Meh, I think it's a bit adorable really. And at least she is consistent.

I'm just going to assume that Rui never existed in the anime. Didn't like what the anime did to Prince's character.

Don't know if I should keep watching it just to see how they're going to end it.

So Hitomi and Heike joined forces.
Hitomi sure is a smart one.
Looks like they took Sakura just so no one could use her against them.
Ogami is not as easily swayed as others.
Interesting turn of events.

It was nice seeing some new info mainly about Hitomi.
Actually, it explained a whole lot about his current way of thinking.
So much killing, so much death...
Seeing all that, it no wonder Heike joined his side.
Hitomi was like everyone's big brother, it was nice ^^
Guess he just wants to save them all from doing what they do.

And even more reason for me to believe Heike didn't really kill 04.

@Ess well it is based off of the manga and although they changed things it may actually be more amusing this way although there are other people i'd enjoy seeing but that's alright by me

Actually, i am not even remotely a fan of the manga past the first few chapters. I agree that overall the anime is a much better product than the manga ever will be, but it not without its faults. Off the top of my head, a cast of characters much too large for a 12-13 episode anime and the resulting butchery of their characters and development (Prince is the main target here). And of course, the annoyance level of Sakura, which went off the hook and through the roof.

After watching the 11th episode I have to wonder what the intent was for all of these changes from the manga. Basically Hitomi and the puppy now have the most character depth and every other main character is a shell compared to their manga counterpart. I find that hilarious but still these changes just feel weird. I thought the changes early on in the series definitely sped up the pacing of the plot (a good thing) but this expanded back story for Hitomi and now this bomb hunt situation feels totally dragged out. Given the huge amount of source material to work with and their willingness to be liberal with it, I don't really understand why this adaptation just kinda feels average even after the changes.

Atleast the prince is now back so I don't have much else to complain about.

truth is if it was only going to be 12 something would've been screwed up

Things are going out of control.
A lot has changed when compared to their younger days.
Difference in power between Ogami and Hitomi was very obvious.
Well, Hitomi's heart was in the right place, but his methods were wrong.
Toki vs Heike. That was a pretty cool fight.
Very interesting episode.

I have to say this episode had some nice action.

Although I don't really like Hitomi's unexplained 180.

I'm so completely rooting for Hitomi to win. Even though he won't. He's the only one with sufficient backstory and character development from this gigantic cast of shallow characters; i simply do not care about anyone else.

lol for me it's the reverse. There was no character development. Only his sudden 180 from "I'll protect everyone" to "I'll kill everyone.".

ironically if you pay attention hitomi didn't really have an unpredictable 180 the entire of episode 9 was basically the reason why hitomi went rogue as for
development there is development but it wont be shown unless they make a 2nd season which they've made it hard to do

Oops double post.

I forgot how much of an asshole the prime minister was, they really nailed his character.

Watched the two last episodes (was surprised to see both 12 and 13). They continued the anime original route but was surprised to see things for a possible 2nd season

Spoiler for 12&13, 13 mainly:


Heike was the one who entertained me the most, he's the best character of the series so it isn't strange. I'll just give the anime a 5 because I really didn't care about Hitomi and wasn't happy with the way they handled certain characters but the last 2 episodes were good.
