They should call this show The Story of Weird Fetishes and be done with it.

I don't think she's a bad person at all. It's just that I'm not sure what drives her.

The problem for now that Crime's Edge impulses get will stronger if he kills which is becoming more and more likely to happen when more Authors start coming after Iwai.
This is basically what I meant, really. The hair cutting is fine.

(I really love this show. Best new show this year so far.)

So we got introduced to essentially 4 new characters (2 Authors, 1 Instead and the other a policewoman). Interesting thing here is neither of the Authors wants Iwai's life, in fact they're are rather content with their curses. Another surprising thing is that the police is in league with Gossip which means they know about the Killing Goods. Going for them for help probably is no longer a good idea.
It's heavily implied that the policewoman is also an Instead, namely for the guy with the deadly Rulebook. However, she doesn't seem to be actively aware of her role and acts more or less on instinct (which might even be mistaken for her being in love with him, though that probably isn't far from the truth, if the other Author/Instead couples are anything to go by).

Ah, good point. I don't originally consider that because I was under the impression that Seigi might actually be killing criminals, thus no need for an Instead.

The weirdness and intensity is still turned up to 11, and I'm still loving this series. Its ability to create atmosphere and contrasting moods is really quite amazing.

The way Iwai remembers her bond with Kiri... after cutting someone with the crime edge.

One of the interesting things about the show's aesthetics is that it's so deliberately ambiguous. The scene with Iwai almost being raped is very visceral: Given the fetish aspect of the show, she's being objectived as a the centre-fold of a rape-fantasy. But at the same time, she's a character, and she defends herself (not waiting for the rescue, here). The plot sympathises with her, and the emphasis on tears can (and should) also be seen as an invitation to sympathise with her. (It's turned up a notch, here, from the earlier urine scene).

This contrast is inherent in the highly stylised show. At a visceral level, for me, the contrast loses its meaning: the show is just very sensual.

On a side note, I loved how this episode underlined Yamane's outsider status. The tea scene was great (and earlier she'd already functioned as a sort of counter-point to the set-up). Also how she just lies there while the girls are talking about scary stuff... She's one of my favourite characters in this one.

I wonder how will she react if she discovers that Kiri is a descendant of Norma Grayland.

YMMV. I found it unsettling.

It's kinda annoying that after all they've been through the story feels the need to put Iwai and Kiri's relationship to the test through a misunderstanding, but whatever. Let's hope it doesn't come an actual issue and Kiri can keep on being a badass. This episode was mostly build up so there's not much to say.

Okay that's it. The colour filters are shit and need to go. They aren't arty or stylish or anything, they absolutely ruin the fight scenes. Even that pretty nice but brief cut at the start of Kiri vs S&M girl looked terrible because of it.

Other than that S&M girl's 'backstory' was dumb. That's it? Petty.

Meh, otherwise the rest was okay I guess. The part at the end was kinda nice. I still don't find myself legitimately invested in Kiri and Koiwai's relationship beyond the amusement of the hair fetish but it could be worse. Six episodes in and the show is falling short of being the strange, twisted, quirky series I expected it to be.
