I hardly ever give perfect 10s for episodes but this one deserves it. The first half was so comforting and calm, it literally brought peace to my heart, only to shatter it in the second one. Absolutely awesome.

I haven't seen the eppie yet *downloading RAW xD* but from spoilers, being a huge Yorito x Matsuri fan, I'm sure tha I'll be loving this episode xD Putting my love for my fave couple in this series aside, the art and story development in this eppie was really great It makes you want to crave for what will happen next and also demand for explanations of some things revealed in this episodes. Really nice

I can't wait for the subs *_* Please come soon!!!! xD

I don't think there were any definite clues though, we'll just have to wait until everything unfolds. ^^

Indeed a very nice ep.

That girl in the pool of blood... i think she might be our rozen-loli herself. It is obvious that Takashi and Mayuko disagree with the way the situation(?) with Matsuri has to be dealt with - seems like Mayuko wants to talk to her, while Takashi wants to kill her.

Crackshot theory on Mayuko/Matsuri. I am going to assume that Matsuri has the ability to turn people in to beings similar to her for the theory to work.

According to Matsuri, she is pretty tough to kill/heals fast. We saw Mayuko in a pool of blood... perhaps she was deadly injured/close to death, and in order to save her Matsuri ended up turning her in to a "creature" similar to herself. (Would also explain why Mayuko looks just like the girl we saw in the flashback 17 years ago - if Matsuri is any indicator, she doesn't age at all, so we can safely assume that the "time stops" for the person the moment he/she is changed.

Maybe Matsuri ended up feeling afterwards, and never got to speak with Mayuko - hence the reason why Mayuko wants to talk with her - perhaps she wants to ask why Matsuri did it. Seems like Takashi is a childhood friend of Mayuko's ... and it seems all he has in mind is to kill Matsuri for turning Mayuko in a "monster".


... or something like that

Matsuri + ponytail = pure win! Cuteness overdose at its finest. Lots of Matsuri x Yorito moments this episode. Their date was cute as well... especially the boat part, when Matsuri ended up rowing the boat

They sure got me with Koyori's visit - i was dead certain it was the Takashi >.<


Ponytail!

Takashi needs to die >.< How dare he hurt Matsuri like that (he even had an evil laugh)... he asked why Matsuri didn't kill him... well, i was thinking the same thing - i would love to see him turn in to a smoking pile of rust or w/e on the floor. I hope that the damage to his arm is permanent at least. Speaking of which...just how many of those darts he carries around ? 0_o ... the amount he was throwing seemed kinda absurd.

Yorito saving Matsuri... as expected. Mana showing up and finding demolished house/beat up Matsuri/bleeding Yorito = not expected. I wonder how will he explain everything (Or will he lie... conveniently it started to rain, so he can get Matsuri to safety with relative ease).

That look on Aono's face... i am fully expecting her to pull a Kaede on us now >.< She looked freaked out just by the fact that there was a girl other than Mana in Yorito's home >.< ... i smell more crap incoming the next ep, this time from Aono's side.

Ponytail!

One nitpick about the ep - was it me, or did the character designs seem a bit off this week ?

9/10

... and allow me to brood over the complete lack of avatarable Matsuri scenes this ep

Lunar Subs are out... I thought this was kinda funny.
Spoiler:


I can't decided how to score this episode. I kinda like it, but there are some technical reasons to mark it down. The artwork does seem problematic, and it's inconsistent: Matsuri stepping into the boat was nice, but them walking on the hill was rough. And the music at the end is annoying.

What this part of the story makes me think of is a musical technique of foreshadowing. (I think there's a specific term musicians use, but I haven't been able to recall it.) In one movement the composer will briefly insert the theme for the next movement, then return to the first theme to finish out. The end of the episode is not the beginning of the intense part of the story, there's still too many things to work through before we can get there. What's Takeshi's backstory? How will Aono react to Matsuri? Will Mana start feeling stronger for Yorito with Matsuri threatening to take him away for her?

This episode is the hook that will hang us in suspense until the climax.

Since when did the discussion thread turn into a release advertisement thread?



I liked this episode. I must say, whats with all the crazy lolis? First we had a loli in a box, now a loli in a trashcan. Oscar must be happy.

I really hope Aono doesn't pull a Kaede though, that would be quite detrimental to the series' plot progression.

Then again, I'm still mighty confused on just what kind of plot is going on in Sola, hopefully episode 6 will explain more. (Damn those episode previews not giving any indication on what the hell is going on).

don't know what people have against the music in this episode.
I thought especially the music in this episode was good.
I just love the piano pieces.

(XviD and h246. Version of subs out from LunarAnime)
just following the previous advertisment
